Homeopathy and science vs maggots and leeches

Deirdre McNamara, Doctor of Homeopathy
A writer for Alive recently described Homeopathy as “Magical thinking” and therefore out of bounds for Catholics. I guess she knew better than Blessed Mother Teresa of Calcutta.
Theological proscriptions are best left to Benedict XVI. Homeopathic medicine is the only Western system 100% consistent with the magisterium of the Church. Developed in 1792, sci-tech
began to catch up in the late twentieth century, plundering our knowledge and systems without any real results, their labs littered with tortured animals and little embryos, poor little human babies murdered in vitro or in vivo.
Homeopathy has already proven its ability to cure the incurable; to treat antibiotic resistant disease; to eliminate viral load in Hep C patients, and to facilitate human reproduction without invasive and ignominious procedures where other systems have failed. We have outshone allopathy consistently and statistically, becoming a threat to Big Pharma with its emphasis on “maintenance” Medicine. We deserve equal time and funding to re-establish Homeopathy’s curative properties. They are already proven.
Personally I’m getting fed up of MDs altering their “untreatable/inoperable” diagnoses after a patient returns with “mysterious remission” following consultation with a Homeopathist. Here’s another clarification; those “mysterious remissions” are often due to homeopathic intervention. It is sad that trust between patient and physician is at such a low ebb that patients believe it necessary to conceal their visits to Homeopathists. However 64% of UK GPs refer chronic patients to Homeopaths, so, unmolested by big Pharma, allopaths and homeopaths can work symbiotically to elevate patient care while simultaneously lowering costs.
“Mammon” in the form of the Pharmaceutical industry spent millions trying to close us down, but as the wise rabbi Gamaliel declared, “if it is from God it will endure.” We endured, and rebounded strongly in the seventies and eighties, leading a forty billion dollar industry in gentle, natural adjuncts and forcing a revolution in orthodox medical strategies. Observing this, Pharmatech controlled allopathy hijacked two centuries of Homeopathic research into nutritional and environmental factors in disease, and finally listened to our warnings regarding over-prescribing and antibiotic resistant bacteria. Too bad they didn’t consult us regarding the use of animal proteins in the feeding of herbivores!
Enter Big Pharma again, with a different strategy: instead of outright suppression, they invested heavily in confusing the public. Diabolical!
Before, our patients were well informed. Now many arrive completely ill informed with confused expectations, and requiring education. In NYC many arrive angry and defensive after dealing with NY’s aggressive, patient-hostile system. Educating each patient can be wearying and time consuming.
Back to science.
In 1790 surgeons walked around in blood encrusted clothes; the filthier the clothes, the more distinguished the surgeon. This meant a high mortality rate for patients, particularly mothers. The hot tar poured on amputated stumps generally killed all bacteria, and men could use rum and whiskey to get them through systemic infections – not an option for women in childbirth! Some survived prescribed maggots and leeches. Women, however, had to get through childbirth using barbaric methods of delivery and died at an extraordinary rate from something called puerperal fever transmitted by surgeons to their patients. Suffering was so acute that many rejected their babies or couldn’t nurse.
Then came Dr. Samuel Hahnemann, a physician and pharmacist. In 1792 a friend was seriously ill with malaria. He mind noted the similarity of his buddy’s symptoms to the symptoms created by the ingestion of excessive quantities of quinine.
Quinine is also known as Cinchona bark, named for the Countess of Cinchon, Peru who gave it to Jesuit Missionaries who brought it to Europe. It was given to her by a surgeon better known as St. Martin de Porres. Hahnemann referred to Homeopathy as “Gift of a Gracious God.”
Dr. Hahnemann administered Cinchona to his friend who recovered rapidly. Quinine became the standard treatment for Malaria.
Hahnemann and associates set about creating the most comprehensive, best researched medical system of all time. So far ahead of the science of his day, it has taken 200 years for science and technology to prove the presence of energy fields in the micro-diluted remedies. Being a “prophetic” scientist, Hahnemann had to work with the limited language of 18th century science. He led, anticipated and inspired immunology, psychosomatics, the understanding and treatment of mental illness asepsis, environmental and nutritional sciences, and still leads.
Homeopathic medicine has yet to be surpassed, and our remedies have held up for two centuries, yet we are denied resources to systemize our discoveries and document the recoveries of patients diagnosed with incurable disease. When medicine was doctor driven, homeopaths and allopaths enjoyed a collegial rivalry, uniting for optimum service to patient. NY Life Insurance even gave our patients a discount. Longer lives, fewer health problems and complications.
Tragically, Homeopathy could probably cut medical costs by 50% with a tenfold improvement in patient care but billions have been poured into orthodoxy, resulting in BSE, MRSA/HIV, etc., and multiple recalls of prescription medicine pushed on the public with falsified research, and a return to leeches and maggots.
Food in NY now has the same slimy taste; this due to the presence of “modified” corn syrup, probably Monsanto’s monopolist variety. Their lawsuits against America’s farmers has destroyed the indigenous corn supply and the use of the ubiquitous filler, absence of nutrition based flavor heavily disguised with another disgusting product, “chili oil” has led to a nation of obese diabetics who suffer immensely trying one diet after another to lose weight, because their bodies cannot process the genetically modified high “fructose” corn syrup while the well-to-do create a genetically superior sub species with specialty high price foods imported from Europe, Canada, etc. By the way, Mexico still has over four hundred varieties of corn. Track the Monsanto jet going south.
Then there’s ethanol. Anyone smell a rat when Government starts pretending it’s ecologically concerned? That deal with Brazil will benefit developers as rain-forests are destroyed in order to create fields and clearings for the genetically modified crops.
Then, “science” is now corrupting another species: the safflower – splicing in human genes to create insulin. It sounds so nice and innocent, but if they weren’t poisoning people with GM corn syrup they wouldn’t need the insulin in the first and second place. It starts out with human insulin, but God knows where these “Dr. Moreaus” intend to take it. Look at the discarded human embryos, murdered in the name of Science. How can these hateful people take human life with such impunity. If they can do that to babies, how do you think they’ll treat the rest of us?
As Minister for Trade and Enterprise, Ireland’s present Minister for Health brought in representatives of Biotech without any explanation as to research, products, etc. Isn’t time we started asking serious questions, requiring detailed and specific answers.
Posthumous Papal honors for Dr. Hahnemann would begin to address two centuries of injustice to the devout genius of the second millennium.
