Voice of Young Science Discredits Homeopathy

Tags: Homeopathy in Africa, WTO condemns homeopathy

  Homeopathy is under attack once again by the Voice Of Young Science.  This is a charity group in the UK that says that homeopathy should not be used in Africa to help people with life threatening diseases in Africa.

  The group says all their data is research and trial based.  They say there are no such trials that exist that say homeopathy can treat life threatening diseases. However, recent trials suggest that homeopathy medicine was as effective as conventional medicine in treating malaria.  These trials are small and larger trials are needed.  Trials certainly seem to be on homeopathy side for malaria. 

  This group has many scientific donors as well as pharmacetical companies.   They tout evidence base medicine as the really only effective medicines for treatment.  This group does not realize that many conventional medicines on the market today would not pass placebo based testing.  

  The group issued a letter to the press media that the WTO officially condemns homeopathy and says that it has no merit in the world of medicine.  They say the WTO condemns homeopathy for treating malaria, tuberculousis, diarrhea and other diseases in developing countries in Africa.  BBC picked up this press release and send it out to the world.  WTO did not make this official announcement.  BBC did recant their press release but the information did go out to the general public.

  Millions of people die each year in Africa because they have no access to prescription drugs.  They are essientially left with no option except to die.  Homeopathy is cheap and readily avaiable.  There is no reason why homeopathy can not reach the poor people who need it.  

  Homeopathy is making a significant impact in Africa.   In Kenya, the homeopathic Abha Light Foundation operates twenty health clinics, various mobile offices and even a couple of HIV/AIDS centers.  The results of these clinics have been tremendous.  Malaria results with homeopathy have been well received by patients.  Other homeopathic clinics are working in Botswana and Tanzania to help people that do not have access to proper healthcare.

Homeopathy is having an impact in Africa.  Attacks on homeopathy are usually a positive thing.  Homeopathy is being attacked because drug companies see this type of alternative medicine as being a threat to their profits. 

Homeopathy does need significantly more research and funding.  The positive results of the African clinics suggests more research should be done.  Homeopathy can ideally work together with modern medicine to help people live a longer and better life.  


Homeopathy In Africa

Tags: Homeopathy in Africa

  I was going through some homeopathy blogs online.  I found a very interesting one that I wanted to comment on.  The blog is Jeremy's Journal From Africa. Well known  homeopath, Jeremy Sherr, with his family is in Tanzania to help treat people suffering from Aids, Tuberculouis and Malaria. Jeremy spent almost 10 years trying to acquire money for aids research and homeopathy.  There is plenty of money for aids research.  However, the mention of homeopathy seemed to close any chance of getting research money.  Jeremy decided to go to Africa to help people since he was not receiving the funding that he hoped for.  The homeopath believes homeopathy may be useful in Africa since it is affordable for most people.  Many people can not afford pharmaceutical drugs in Africa because of the high costs.

  The skeptic community has discovered what he is doing in Africa.  They were quite critical of his work. He was accused of telling current patients not to take allopathic drugs. However, the homeopath has said he has never told anyone to stop taking their current medication.  Homeopathy was never offered as an alternative to allopathic drugs.  He is also not involved in any research at the moment.  This contrary to what skeptics and big pharmaceutical are saying.   If there was research to be done, the trials would be of the highest quality and highly ethical.   

   Skeptics called his work dangerous and deillusional.  Jeremy replied back by saying big pharmaceuticals were not getting enough medicine to the people and these medicines did not cure the problems.

  So far, the homeopaths results have been impressive. His lastest journal entries seem to suggest improvement in his patients.  A current patient with reoccuring Tuberculouis has been treated with Mercurius Solubilis 30C.  After one week of taking this remedy, the patient is significantly better.  Many of the patients symptoms have gone away all together.

  Another patient with aids has been experiencing malaria attacks.  She feels terrible and has had some major headaches with terrible body aches and pain.  After one month of treatment with Androctonus 12C daily, the patient showed significant improvement.  The terrible headaches were gone.  The patient felt significantly better than before.   

Jeremy definitely want to thank  big pharmacetical companies and skeptics.  They have made his work get into the news.  His blog and work is becoming popular thanks to the hysteria created when they found out about his work.

  You can read Jeremy's blog with the link below.

Why is big pharma not providing enough medicine in Africa?  If they are not providing enough medicine, why are they against someone coming in to offer an alternative solution.  Anything is better than nothing.
