Homoeopathy successes

Arthritis
Although ‘uncontrolled’ (i.e. without a control set of patients with which to compare results), a retrospective study of 99 people treated homeopathically for their arthritis shows homoeopathy’s potential in this area. Of the 99 patients studied (64 women and 35 men), 27 experienced ‘full recovery’, seventeen experienced ‘recovery with a few lapses’, 42 reported ‘improvement’ and thirteen reported ‘aggravation or failure’. During the study 43 patients managed to come off their conventional drugs and 24 significantly reduced medication.

Respiratory tract
An impressive international study that involved 30 clinicians in six clinics in four countries enrolled 500 consecutive patients with upper respiratory tract complaints, lower respiratory tract complaints, or ear complaints. The study found 83% of patients receiving homoeopathic care experienced improvement, while only 68% of those receiving a conventional medication experienced a similar degree of improvement.

The study also found that those people given homoeopathy experienced more rapid relief (Riley, et al, 2001).

Shang et al. state that ‘eight trials of homoeopathic remedies in acute infections of the upper respiratory tract … indicated a substantial beneficial effect … sensitivity analyses might suggest that there is robust evidence that the treatment under investigation works.'

Otitis media ('glue ear')
A German trial pitting homoeopathy against antibiotics in the treatment of acute otitis media in children found that homoeopathy outperformed antibiotics and kept a greater number of the children free of relapses for twelve months.

Eczema
In 118 children with eczema aged one to sixteen years old, homoeopathy was as effective as conventional treatments (e.g. corticosteroid creams) at relieving symptoms and improving eczema-related quality of life. In children aged nine to sixteen conventional treatments were slightly more effective at improving overall quality of life.

The children whose symptoms were the most severe at the beginning of the one-year study gained more benefit from homoeopathic treatment than from conventional treatments.

The study was subjective rather than clinical, being questionnaire-based and collecting the perceptions of patients, parents and doctors

Dermatitis
Seventeen people with dermatitis who had tried conventional medical and psychological therapies without success were treated homoeopathically for between six and thirty-one months. Either objective analysis of the patients’ skin condition or the patients’ subjective assessment suggested an average 50% improvement for many of the patients:

  • reduced itchiness (15 patients)
  • better sleep (10 patients); improved quality of life (9 patients)
  • greater fulfilment at work (7 patients)
  • better human relations (10 patients)

Autism
CEASE (Complete Elimination of Autistic Spectrum Expression) Therapy addresses autism homoeopathically, using preparations of the substances Dr. Tinus Smits had identified as possible causes, either separately or jointly. From his exerience of treating 300+ cases of child autism he had concluded that 70% of cases were caused by vaccines, 25% by toxic medications and environmental exposures, and 5% by certain diseases.

Tinus died in 2010, but the foundation he set up now trains certified homeopaths in Cease Therapy. There is now an interactive network of 120 CEASE therapists worldwide. Entering your city of residence on webpage http://www.cease-therapy.com/make-appointment displays the nearest therapists to you.

Tinus emphasised how important it was to establish the medical histories of both the child and the parents. He believed that the parents’ exposures to toxic substances and medications, illnesses and vaccines in the months before conception could be transmitted to the child by energetic transfer and, of course, physically during pregnancy.
CEASE Therapy also includes vitamin and mineral therapy to nourish the brain and restore proper bowel function: specifically vitamin C, magnesium, zinc and fish oil.
There is a video introduction to CEASE therapy on website http://www.cease-therapy.com/

Autism beyond Despair
Three weeks before his death, Tinus released his last book, Autism beyond Despair. It explains the step-by-step method he used to help more than 300 autistic children regain function. In many cases, the parents have declared their children 100% cured. In others the process is still underway with significant improvement.

He has also made remarkable discoveries as to why autism is on the increase. Here are three of the many testimonials he had received:

  • “In the nine months of your treatment, our son changed from a non verbal to a child that is able to attend a normal school, speaking in full sentences and making contact with everybody. Amazing! The autism team says it’s a miracle. Your CEASE therapy is great. Our life has already completely changed. Thanks for all your knowledge.”
  • “After three and a half months of treatment she has become another child. She has woken up, is able to express herself verbally and says what she feels instead of shrieking. She is more flexible, more open and more independent. It is a world of difference.”
  • “Our son Vasco is getting better every day, he speaks more and tries to make conversation with us. At school he’s going very well and learns fast. With the detoxification Vasco has made great progress. He’s almost a normal” 5-year-old kid.”

Antibiotics
Homoeopathy became popular in the US in the ninbeteenth century due to its impressive successes in the treatment of infectious diseases. The death rates from cholera, scarlet fever, typhoid and yellow fever in American and European homoeopathic hospitals were typically 2-8 times lower than those in conventional hospitals (Bradford, 1900; Ullman, 2007).

As a result of these successes, at the turn of the 20th century there were over 100 homoeopathic hospitals and 22 homoeopathic colleges, including Boston University, University of Michigan, New York Medical College and The Hahnemann College of Medicine.

Cuba prevents epidemic with homoeopathy
Cuba suffers an annual outbreak of leptospirosis, a bacterial infection caught from animals. If untreated it can lead to kidney damage, meningitis, liver failure, respiratory distress and, in rare cases, death.

In earlier years the health authorities gave conventional vaccines at huge cost (US$2 million) to minimise the number of victims but, in 2008 and 2009, decided to test the power of homeopathic vaccines in two of its fourteen provinces. The results were promising. Whereas in previous years eleven million conventional vaccinations across the entire country had reduced infections to “thousands”, resulting in “several” deaths, two million homoeopathic vaccines across just two provinces reduced infections to just under ten in those provinces, with no deaths. The homoeopathic immunisation programme cost just US$200,000.

The homoeopathic vaccine comprised a homoeopathic preparation of leptospirosis accompanied by two Bach flower essences.
