Homeopathy CAN cure Ebola: Doctors attack 'armchair intellectuals' at World Health Organization who refuse to let them treat deadly virus with snake venom remedy

Homeopathy CAN cure Ebola: Doctors attack 'armchair intellectuals' at World Health Organization who refuse to let them treat deadly virus with snake venom remedy

  • Medics want to treat Ebola victims with remedies backed by Prince Charles
  • They accuse critics of 'ridiculous' disbelief over snake venom treatments
  • Say World Health Organization should approve Ebola homeopathy 'cure'
  • Reveal they treated dying children with arsenic, Spanish fly remedies 

By Gethin Chamberlain In Monrovia, James Robertson In California And Sanjay Jha In Mumbai For Mailonline

Homeopathy could have cured Ebola if the World Health Organization had not stepped in to prevent a trial, according to members of a group who travelled to Liberia hoping to try out remedies including rattlesnake venom and the aphrodisiac Spanish Fly.

The four doctors were the subject of widespread ridicule online after MailOnline revealed that they travelled to the West African country intent on using Ebola victims to put their controversial theories to the test.

But today the homeopaths dismissed their critics as 'armchair intellectuals' and insisted they made the 'dramatic and traumatic trip' to Liberia because they had a duty to try to help.

Organizers of the trip are still inviting donations from supporters of homeopathy - whose ranks include Prince Charles - to fund a second attempt to run an Ebola trial in Liberia. 


Administering remedies: Dr Medha Durge said she and her three colleagues had treated people at Ganta hospital in Liberia and believed remedies such as snake venom and arsenic are effective


'Homeopathy could cure Ebola': A child waiting for treatment at the Ganta hospital in Liberia where four homeopaths went to prove that arsenic and Spanish fly could help treat Ebola 


Ebola hotspot: The remote Ganta hospital in Liberia has treated a huge number of victims and medics used homeopathic remedies including arsenic and Spanish fly to treat sufferers

Homeopathy's critics claim patients receive nothing more than sugar pills and water because the active ingredients are so diluted that no molecules remain.

Speaking exclusively to MailOnline, the homeopaths - who are all qualified medical doctors - revealed that they intended to use their time at the Ganta United Methodist Hospital to try to find a homeopathic cure for Ebola.

From her office in Mumbai, India, Dr Medha Durge said they had been keen to try out their own medicines on Ebola victims alongside more conventional treatments.

'Is it possible that four doctors with over 25 years practice will go all the way to Liberia and harm/exploit Ebola victims? We wanted to help and that too because nothing was helping them,' she said.

'Also we wanted to give homeopathy along with the drips.'

She confirmed that they had used homeopathic treatments on patients, despite the instructions from health officials in the capital Monrovia not to do so. She said she had not felt the need to quarantine herself after returning to India but was monitoring her own condition for any signs of the disease.

She said she had read about the outbreak online and when people started dying in large numbers she decided that homeopathy could hold the key to a cure.

'As the momentum for homeopaths to do something built up I got the opportunity and took it,' she said. 'We treated all types of cases in the hospital with homeopathic medicines. The response was good to the extent that we have a request from them to promote and teach homeopathy there.'

She said it was unfair to suggest that they were exploiting victims - as some commentators have done - for their own ends.

'None of the people thought that in Liberia. We helped, they accepted. These critics are armchair intellectuals.'

Her colleague Dr Ortrud Lindemann, who runs a clinic in Barcelona, insisted that homeopathy could prove useful in fighting the Ebola virus.

'As doctors we have the duty to do everything we can to alleviate the suffering of those poor people stricken with Ebola and we hoped that homeopathic remedies might be able to help in that,' she told MailOnline.



Experiments: Homeopaths Dr Ortrud Lindemann (left) and Dr Medha Durge (right) went to Ganta hospital in Liberia to 'prove' that their remedies could cure Ebola and told MailOnline that the WHO should allow them to run tests


'Rough trip': Dr Richard Hiltner, who travelled to Liberia from California to prove that his methods work, says there is some evidence homeopathy is effective for Yellow Fever



Ebola kit: Dr Medha Durge wears her protection kit at Ganta hospital, which has faced claims that patients and staff are not using the recommended chlorinated water 

'We have natural medicines that can treat sudden high fever, diarrhoea, chronic headaches, all of which are symptoms of Ebola and therefore could be used to help patients.'

MailOnline tracked Dr Lindemann, who qualified as a doctor in 1986 in Germany, to the Marenostrum private clinic on Calle Fontanella in an upmarket shopping district of central Barcelona off Plaza Cataluña, which specialises in natural therapies.

'There is not yet one specific medicine widely available for the treatment of Ebola but there are homeopathic remedies that have been proven successful in treating other epidemics such as cholera.' 

There she claimed that their efforts had torpedoed by an official from the World Health Organisation, who had objected to their methods.

'We were disappointed not to be allowed to treat the Ebola patients as we had intended after we were stopped by the Ministry of Health. It seems that a WHO official objected to what we had planned so we were not allowed to carry out our project,' she said.

'We presented our project several months ago and had been invited to the hospital to help in the treatment of Ebola patients but then when we arrived we were told not to go near them.

'Instead we spent our time treating other patients in the Ganta hospital which is in crisis because there are not enough doctors to deal with normal medical complaints. So we helped in the hospital under the supervision of the medical director.'


Suspicion: People outside Ganta United Methodist Hospital, Liberia trying to persuade staff to release the body of a relative who has died from suspected Ebola.


Hygiene concerns: A bucket of chlorinated water at Ganta United Methodist Hospital, Liberia. Staff and paitnets are meant to wash their hands to prevent the spread of Ebola, but few do

She dismissed criticism of their methods as unfair.

'To say we offer false hope is ridiculous,' she said. 'We were four qualified doctors who answered a call for volunteers and put our own lives in danger to try and help. If there is something to be done on top of the conventional treatment to help a patient, then we have a duty to try.'

Back in Mumbai, Dr Durge claimed that the Liberian government had been 'very helpful, kind and accepting of homeopathy. They appreciated us arriving there under the circumstances.'

 We treated all types of cases in the hospital with homeopathic medicines

However, senior health officials involved in the fight against Ebola in Liberia told MailOnline they had not realized the doctors were homeopaths and that when they found out, they gave strict instructions that they were not to use their techniques on patients.

The organization that organized the expedition, the Liga Medicorum Homeopathica Internationalis, is still inviting donations to fund what it describes as 'international homeopathic projects'.

Its website states that all donations are tax deductable and that 'the purposes of these … are the promotion and the support of research and of education in the field of medical homeopathy worldwide.'

Another of the homeopaths, Dr Richard Hiltner, spoke to MailOnline at his office in Ojai, California. The office is decorated with dream-catchers and there are glass sculpted butterflies scattered around a brick fireplace, with tranquil music echoing quietly around the cozy home. There are numerous medical qualification certificates on the walls.

Swiss Dr Edouard Broussalian, left, accompanied Indian Dr Medha Durge, on the trip to Liberia to 'prove' that homeopathic remedies work

'The trip was dramatic and traumatic,' he said.

'It was a rough trip. There was no running water for five days, the roads were incredible bumpy and we'd be doing journeys back and forth every day. The electricity was on and off the whole time.'

He said they all underwent WHO training in using personal protective equipment - the 'space suits' that medical staff in close contact with Ebola sufferers have to wear - and felt safe.

'I wasn't afraid to catch Ebola when I was there. There's always a risk but we were well prepared and knew what was going on,' he said.

He revealed that they had consulted other leading homeopaths in the hope of coming up with a potential cure that could be tested on Ebola patients.

'I've used homeopathy for 40 years and there's a lot of research various epidemics including Yellow Fever, which is similar to Ebola in symptoms,' he said.

'When we went to do this we had some of the very best international homeopathy physicians who we consulted and worked with for many months before hand.

'And again we looked at which remedies would fit the pattern to cure, we had some good ideas about what medicine works and what would be beneficial. Again, we needed the experience so that was our preparation.'

He confirmed that rattlesnake venom and Spanish Fly were among the possible cures that they wanted to test out.

And he said he was disappointed that conventional medicine had closed its mind to homeopathy.


Protection: Doctors in Sierra Leone ensure they are kitted out to protect themselves against the epidemic


Hygiene squad: Sierra Leone teams take no chances with protection as they don full medical 'armour' 

'This method could have and should have been used a lot earlier but unfortunately it hasn't worked out like that. There are various things that could have been done right away while they were trying to develop immunizations.

'What needs to be done is to end the feud, stop calling people names, and start working together. See what we have in common and what we can work with. All doctors need to work together.'

Dr Hiltner is a member of the executive committee of group that organized the trip and is hoping to recoup some of his costs from them.

'I paid for everything. They are trying to get donations to make up for it but I paid for everything initially. All I'm asking for in return of the fundraising is my airfare.'

The fourth member of the team, Dr Edouard Broussalian, 52, from Geneva, did not respond to requests to be interviewed.

But in a post on his own website, now deleted, he insisted that the mission offered 'a unique opportunity to demonstrate the value of homeopathy. Of course they [their critics] will challenge us as to whether the 'cured patients' were really ill in the first place, but we hope to treat such large numbers that no challenge will be possible. The manufacturers of experimental vaccines will then have to change their opinions.'

Staff at the Ganta hospital and health officials in Monrovia have confirmed that the trip's organizers are attempting to get approval to mount a second mission, this time with permission to treat Ebola victims with homeopathy.

Dr Lindemann said all they were doing was responding to a request from the WHO for assistance in fighting Ebola.

'We answered a call from the WHO, which earlier this year in one of the crisis meetings asked for CAM practitioners – Complimentary and Alternative Medicine - to work alongside conventional medicine to tackle the deadly virus.'

 There is no scientific evidence that homeopathy has any impact on dealing with viral disease like Ebola

 UK charity ActionAid

'But then we were prevented from doing so. We have now asked for details as to what exactly they want from us,' she said.

The possibility that homeopaths may yet get to treat Ebola patients has alarmed many people working to tackle the spread of the disease, which has claimed more than 5,000 lives in the latest outbreak and which continues to resurface in new hotspots despite some successes in bringing it under control.

Mike Noyes, the head of humanitarian response at UK charity ActionAid, which has teams who support clinics in Sierra Leone and Liberia, told Mail Online: 'With this crisis, you can't be offering false hope.

'There is no scientific evidence that homeopathy has any impact on dealing with viral disease like Ebola.

'Coming in from the outside with these unproven approaches is damaging to the response and bringing the disease under control.' 

There is no suggestion that Prince Charles has donated any money to fund the Ebola mission, but his interest in homeopathy is well-documented. In 2006 he told the World Health Assembly that homeopathy was 'rooted in ancient traditions that intuitively understood the need to maintain balance and harmony with our minds, bodies and the natural world'.

Prescription drug vending machines now being installed on college campuses across America

Prescription drug vending machines now being installed on college campuses across America

Learn more:

(NaturalNews) The total insanity of over-medication in America has reached a new low as Arizona State University has installed a prescription drug vending machine called InstyMeds.

American college students -- who are already the most over-medicated population on the planet -- now have an even easier way to pollute their brains with SSRI drugs, antidepressants, antipsychotics and prescription "speed" amphetamines which are routinely abused by students for final exam cram study sessions.

"School officials didn't specify exactly what kind of drugs will be available in the machine, but said it would contain 50 medications that are most commonly prescribed to college students," reports CBS News. [1]

"You know, the things that you'd like to have right now to feel better," said InstyMeds Vice President Bob Bang, according to CBS News.

No doubt if cocaine were somehow patented by Glaxo Smith Kline, there would also be cocaine vending machines on college campuses by now, too, and marketed as a "performance booster" for students.

I don't assign any particular blame to the InstyMeds machine company, by the way. The machine looks like a competent invention to bypass the usual inefficiencies found in most pharmacy operations. The real problem with medications in America is found across the culture, in the quack science corruption and criminality of the drug industry, the "give me a pill, doc!" patient mindset, and the "quick fix" mentality where people think they can pop a pill to solve a problem.

Check out the Instymeds website for information on their invention, which technically could be used to dispense all sorts of things that are far more useful for student health -- such as vitamin D! Why don't universities install nutritional products vending machines to actually support cognitive function and immune function among students?

Big Pharma to sweep through universities

Big Pharma has already infiltrated and dominated medical schools and "science" journals. Drug company interests also completely dominate the mainstream media and government health care decision makers. Now they're going to get their hooks into college campuses all across the country where students can be trained to believe that life isn't complete without a prescription medication in their hands.

These pharma drugs are so safe that students can be dosed with three, five or even ten at a time, we're told. And yet the drugs are so dangerous that "the medication is secure in the 1,500-pound, 'vault-like machines' that have remote alarms in response to any tampering," reports ABC. Wouldn't want any students looting the machine and selling those drugs on their own, you see. That would be "drug dealing."

When a student sells amphetamines to another student, that's a felony crime, you see. But when a vending machine sells amphetamines to the same exact student by prescription, that's called "evidence-based medicine."

Arizona State University is the second university in America to install the prescription drug vending machine, and many more are in the works. Seriously, is "easier access to more meds" really the answer to student health?

"Serving the health-care needs of our students is still our highest priority," remarked Allan Markus, director of ASU Health Services, when the campus closed its pharmacy. And yet, I'm willing to bet nobody at ASU Health Services ever bothered to tell students why they need to boost their intake of vitamin D.

In fact, if a vitamin vending machine were installed on campus, it would no doubt generate outrage and complaints from all the drug company reps and the doctors they routinely bribe to keep pushing their poisons onto students, pregnant women, babies and the elderly.

The Real Reason Wheat is Toxic (It's Not the Gluten)

The Real Reason Wheat is Toxic (It's Not the Gluten)

The stories became far too frequent to ignore.

Emails from folks with allergic or digestive issues to wheat in the United States experienced no symptoms whatsoever when they tried eating pasta on vacation in Italy.

Confused parents wondering why wheat consumption sometimes triggered autoimmune reactions in their children but not at other times.

In my own home, I've long pondered why my husband can eat the wheat I prepare at home, but he experiences negative digestive effects eating even a single roll in a restaurant.

There is clearly something going on with wheat that is not well known by the general public. It goes far and beyond organic versus nonorganic, gluten or hybridization because even conventional wheat triggers no symptoms for some who eat wheat in other parts of the world.

What indeed is going on with wheat?

For quite some time, I secretly harbored the notion that wheat in the United States must, in fact, be genetically modified.  GMO wheat secretly invading the North American food supply seemed the only thing that made sense and could account for the varied experiences I was hearing about.

I reasoned that it couldn't be the gluten or wheat hybridization. Gluten and wheat hybrids have been consumed for thousands of years. It just didn't make sense that this could be the reason for so many people suddenly having problems with wheat and gluten in general in the past 5-10 years.

Finally, the answer came over dinner a couple of months ago with a friend who was well versed in the wheat production process. I started researching the issue for myself, and was, quite frankly, horrified at what I discovered.

The good news is that the reason wheat has become so toxic in the United States is not because it is secretly GMO as I had feared (thank goodness!).

The bad news is that the problem lies with the manner in which wheat is grown and harvested by conventional wheat farmers.

You're going to want to sit down for this one.  I've had some folks burst into tears in horror when I passed along this information before.

Common wheat harvest protocol in the United States is to drench the wheat fields with Roundup several days before the combine harvesters work through the fields as the practice allows for an earlier, easier and bigger harvest 

Pre-harvest application of the herbicide Roundup or other herbicides containing the deadly active ingredient glyphosate to wheat and barley as a desiccant was suggested as early as 1980.  It has since become routine over the past 15 years and is used as a drying agent 7-10 days before harvest within the conventional farming community


According to Dr. Stephanie Seneff of MIT who has studied the issue in depth and who I recently saw present on the subject at a nutritional Conference in Indianapolis, desiccating non-organic wheat crops with glyphosate just before harvest came into vogue late in the 1990′s with the result that most of the non-organic wheat in the United States is now contaminated with it.  Seneff explains that when you expose wheat to a toxic chemical like glyphosate, it actually releases more seeds resulting in a slightly greater yield:   "It 'goes to seed' as it dies. At its last gasp, it releases the seed" says Dr. Seneff.

According to the US Department of Agriculture, as of 2012, 99% of durum wheat, 97% of spring wheat, and 61% of winter wheat has been treated with herbicides. This is an increase from 88% for durum wheat, 91% for spring wheat and 47% for winter wheat since 1998.

Here's what wheat farmer Keith Lewis has to say about the practice:

I have been a wheat farmer for 50 yrs and one wheat production practice that is very common is applying the herbicide Roundup (glyphosate) just prior to harvest. Roundup is licensed for preharvest weed control. Monsanto, the manufacturer of Roundup claims that application to plants at over 30% kernel moisture result in roundup uptake by the plant into the kernels. Farmers like this practice because Roundup kills the wheat plant allowing an earlier harvest.

A wheat field often ripens unevenly, thus applying Roundup preharvest evens up the greener parts of the field with the more mature. The result is on the less mature areas Roundup is translocated into the kernels and eventually harvested as such.

This practice is not licensed. Farmers mistakenly call it "desiccation." Consumers eating products made from wheat flour are undoubtedly consuming minute amounts of Roundup. An interesting aside, malt barley which is made into beer is not acceptable in the marketplace if it has been sprayed with preharvest Roundup. Lentils and peas are not accepted in the market place if it was sprayed with preharvest roundup….. but wheat is ok. This farming practice greatly concerns me and it should further concern consumers of wheat products.

Here's what wheat farmer Seth Woodland of Woodland and Wheat in Idaho had to say about the practice of using herbicides for wheat dry down:

That practice is bad. I have fellow farmers around me that do it and it is sad. Lucky for you not all of us farm that way. Being the farmer and also the president of a business, we are proud to say that we do not use round up on our wheat ever!

This practice is not just widespread in the United States either. The Food Standards Agency in the United Kingdom reports that use of Roundup as a wheat desiccant results in glyphosate residues regularly showing up in bread samples. Other European countries are waking up to the danger, however. In the Netherlands, use of Roundup is completely banned with France likely soon to follow.

Using Roundup on wheat crops throughout the entire growing season and even as a desiccant just prior to harvest may save the farmer money and increase profits, but it is devastating to the health of the consumer who ultimately consumes the glyphosate residue laden wheat kernels.

The chart below is from a December 2013 study published in the Journal Interdisciplinary Toxicology examining glyphosate pathways to modern diseases such as celiac and gluten intolerance.

While the herbicide industry maintains that glyphosate is minimally toxic to humans, research published in the Journal Entropy strongly argues otherwise by shedding light on exactly how glyphosate disrupts mammalian physiology.

Authored by Anthony Samsel and Stephanie Seneff of MIT, the paper investigates glyphosate's inhibition of cytochrome P450 (CYP) enzymes, an overlooked component of lethal toxicity to mammals.

The currently accepted view is that glyphosate is not harmful to humans or any mammals.  This flawed view is so pervasive in the conventional farming community that Roundup salesmen have been known to foolishly drink it during presentations!

However, just because Roundup doesn't kill you immediately doesn't make it nontoxic.  In fact, the active ingredient in Roundup lethally disrupts the all important shikimate pathway found in beneficial gut microbes which is responsible for synthesis of critical amino acids.

Friendly gut bacteria, also called probiotics, play a critical role in human health. Gut bacteria aid digestion, prevent permeability of the gastrointestinal tract (which discourages the development of autoimmune disease), synthesize vitamins and provide the foundation for robust immunity.  In essence:

Roundup significantly disrupts the functioning of beneficial bacteria in the gut and contributes to permeability of the intestinal wall and consequent expression of autoimmune disease symptoms

In synergy with disruption of the biosynthesis of important amino acids via the shikimate pathway, glyphosate inhibits the cytochrome P450 (CYP) enzymes produced by the gut microbiome.  CYP enzymes are critical to human biology because they detoxify the multitude of foreign chemical compounds, xenobiotics, that we are exposed to in our modern environment today.

As a result, humans exposed to glyphosate through use of Roundup in their community or through ingestion of its residues on industrialized food products become even more vulnerable to the damaging effects of other chemicals and environmental toxins they encounter!

What's worse is that the negative impact of glyphosate exposure is slow and insidious over months and years as inflammation gradually gains a foothold in the cellular systems of the body.

The consequences of this systemic inflammation are most of the diseases and conditions associated with the Western lifestyle:

  • Gastrointestinal disorders
  • Obesity
  • Diabetes
  • Heart Disease
  • Depression
  • Autism
  • Infertility
  • Cancer
  • Multiple Sclerosis
  • Alzheimer's disease

And the list goes on and on and on …

In a nutshell, Dr. Seneff's study of Roundup's ghastly glyphosate which the wheat crop in the United States is doused with uncovers the manner in which this lethal toxin harms the human body by decimating beneficial gut microbes with the tragic end result of disease, degeneration, and widespread suffering

Got the picture yet?

Even if you think you have no trouble digesting wheat, it is still very wise to avoid conventional wheat as much as possible in your diet!

You Must Avoid Toxic Wheat No Matter What

The bottom line is that avoidance of conventional wheat in the United States is absolutely imperative even if you don't currently have a gluten allergy or wheat sensitivity. The increase in the amount of glyphosate applied to wheat closely correlates with the rise of celiac disease and gluten intolerance. Dr. Seneff points out that the increases in these diseases are not just genetic in nature, but also have an environmental cause as not all patient symptoms are alleviated by eliminating gluten from the diet.

The effects of deadly glyphosate on your biology are so insidious that lack of symptoms today means literally nothing.

If you don't have problems with wheat now, you will in the future if you keep eating conventionally produced, toxic wheat!

How to Eat Wheat Safely

Obviously, if you've already developed a sensitivity or allergy to wheat, you must avoid it.  Period.

But, if you aren't celiac or gluten sensitive and would like to consume this ancestral food safely, you can do what we do in our home. We only source organic, preferably low gluten, unhybridized Einkorn wheat for bread making, pancakes, cookies etc.  But, when we eat out or are purchasing food from the store, conventional wheat products are rejected without exception.  This despite the fact that we have no gluten allergies whatsoever in our home – yet.

I am firmly convinced that if we did nothing, our entire family at some point would develop sensitivity to wheat or autoimmune disease in some form due to the toxic manner in which it is processed and the glyphosate residues that are contained in conventional wheat products.

What Are You Going to Do About Toxic Wheat?

How did you react to the news that US wheat farmers are using Roundup, not just to kill weeds, but to dry out the wheat plants to allow for an earlier, easier and bigger harvest and that such a practice causes absorption of toxic glyphosate, the active ingredient in Roundup and other herbicides, right into the wheat kernels themselves?

Did you feel outraged and violated like I did? How will you implement a conventional wheat-avoidance strategy going forward even if you haven't yet developed a problem with gluten or wheat sensitivity?

What about other crops where Roundup is used as a pre-harvest desiccant such as barley, sugar cane, rice, seeds, dried beans and peas, sugar cane, sweet potatoes, and sugar beets?  Will you only be buying these crops in organic form from now on to avoid this modern, man-made scourge?

New Study: For Pediatric Developmental Disorders, Homeopathy is the Answer!

For Pediatric Developmental Disorders, Homeopathy is the Answer: Study

Results of a study done by a Mumbai-based homeopath over a period of seven years, has revealed that homeopathy holds the key to managing pediatric developmental disorders. The research was conducted on 500 children with developmental disorders in India and Europe.

Dr Shreepad Khedekar, who anchored the study said, "We wanted to see the efficacy of homoeopathy in pediatric developmental disorders. The children were in the age group of 3-15 years and their parents were counseled for the treatment."

According to Dr Khedekar, these children were diagnosed with delayed development, autism, tuberous sclerosis, dyspraxia, border line Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) and cerebral palsy.

"These children were put on corrective bio-therapy where each child's own growth radiant was stimulated by giving a specific combination of homeopathy medicines. These children were regularly followed up in the period of 2-7 years," said Dr Khedekar.

Dr Khedekar further added that children were followed up individually by two European pediatricians while a population genetics expert also monitored each child to infer the pre and post treatment differences.
"We found that 80% of the children were completely cured and living a physically and psychologically balanced life. The focus of the treatment through homeopathy was not to treat the isolated symptoms of the developmental disorder, but to treat the child as a whole and help in building up the personality traits of the child from the time of the treatment,” added Dr Khedekar.

The study also found that 60% of the developmental disorders were due to disharmony at home, troubled marriage, single parent, family disputes. Around 30% of children who were diagnosed with a developmental disorder were pre-term, had mothers with low BMI, genetic make-up, sub fertility, and job stress during pregnancy.

The study has been sent to be published in national and international medical journals.

Homeoprophylaxis: Human Records, Studies and Trials

Homeoprophylaxis: Human Records, Studies and Trials

October 27, 2014

Copyright © Compiled by Fran Sheffield 2005 – 2014 (Updated 22nd August 2014);

In the beginning… 

  • Homeopathy’s ability to prevent as well as treat epidemic disease was first discovered in 1799 by Samuel Hahnemann, founder of Homeopathy, during an epidemic of scarlet fever in which he successfully use a matching homeopathic remedy to contain its spread in those he treated. 
  • The prophylactic effects of Homeopathy were quickly picked up by other Homeopaths of the day and subsequently used with success in all of the great world epidemics. It is still employed in outbreaks and epidemics today - by people, communities and governments who have retained the knowledge and the will to use it. The following is a collation of some of those instances – historical and current. 


  • 2006: In Kerala, India, a group of doctors distributed a homeopathic preventative for chikungunya. The results of the study showed that while over 73 % contracted chikungunya in the unprotected group, only 17% of the protected group contracted the disease. (i) 


  • 1831: Samuel Hahnemann prevented and treated cholera during the 1831 Asiatic cholera epidemic with three main remedies. Accounts can be read in Cure and Prevention of Asiatic Cholera. (ii)
  • 1849: Dr Clemens von Boenninghausen treated and prevented “untold” numbers of cholera infections with the above remedies recommended by Hahnemann during the 1849 European epidemic. While a death rate of 54-90% occurred with conventional treatment, Boenninghausen’s patients had a mortality rate of only 5-16%.iii 
  • 1841-1854: Dr Charge, after producing a statistical table showing the difference in cholera mortality between homeopathic and allopathic treatment at the Convent Refuge at Marseilles, stated that once homeopathy was introduced prophylactically, no further cases were reported. (iv) 

Dengue Fever 

  • 1996: The Central Council of Research in Homoeopathy reported that a homeoprophylactic was administered to at least 39,200 people in the Delhi area during an epidemic of dengue haemorrhagic fever. The follow-up of 23,520 people, 10 days later, revealed that only 5 people (0.125%) had developed mild symptoms, with the rest showing no signs or symptoms of the disease. v (During epidemics of dengue, attack rates among the susceptible are often 40-50 %, but may reach 80-90 %, World Health Organisation). (vi) 
  • 2001: In São Paulo, Brazil in May 2001, a single dose of a homeoprophylactic was given during a dengue outbreak to 40% of residents in the most highly affected neighbourhood. Thereafter, dengue incidence decreased by 81.5%, a highly significant decrease when compared with those neighbourhoods that did not receive homeopathic prophylaxis (p<0.0001). (vii) 
  • 2006: A dengue outbreak was controlled by the Cuban Government through the preventative and treatment use of homeopathic remedies. A marked reduction in dengue haemorrhagic fever occurred easing the demand for intensive care beds. (viii)
  • 2007: Between April and September 2007, a homeopathic complex (a combination of homeopathic remedies) was given to 20,000 city residents in São Paulo, Brazil. Unfortunately the trial was aborted prematurely due to national political intervention, but the preliminary findings indicate that homeopathy was effective in the prevention and treatment of the dengue epidemic. (ix) 
  • 2008: Facing an outbreak of dengue in early 2007, the Secretary of Health of the county of Macaé, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, carried out a “Homeopathy Campaign against Dengue”. 156,000 doses of a prophylactic complex (a combination of homeopathic remedies) was freely distributed to asymptomatic patients and 129 doses of the ‘genus epidemicus’ (the remedy that matches the characteristic symptoms of the prevailing epidemic) to symptomatic patients within outpatient clinics. The disease incidence in the first three months of 2008 fell 93% in comparison to the corresponding period in 2007. The rest of the untreated state experienced an increase of 128%. (x)
  • 2008 – 2010: An interview with the Secretary of Health responsible for the integrative homeopathy program of the previous paper reported the following: In 2007, facing a dengue epidemic, the city of Macaé, Rio de Janeiro, decided to add a homeopathic medicine to the contingency plan for dengue fever after which the disease incidence in Macaé in 2008 fell by 71% compared to 2007. In the north Fluminense region, which did not receive the prophylactic, there was an increase of 273%, and in the State of Rio de Janeiro, the increase was 315%. In 2011, there was a decrease of 89% of confirmed cases in the protected area in the first quarter compared to the same period in 2010. The prophylactic was freely distributed by the Health Department of Macaé in the years: 2007: 216,000 doses; 2008: 203,878 doses; 2009: 211,059 doses; 2010: 178 677 doses. In terms of lethality and notified dengue cases there was 0.2 in 2007, 0.0 in 2008, 0.1 in 2009 and 0.2 in 2010. In 2010 the agreed lethality target for severe forms in Macaé was 2.58; the municipality reached 0.68, a much lower rate compared to the state and other municipalities. (xi) 
  • 2010: The Colombo Municipal Council (CMC) and homeopathic doctors used homeoprophylaxis to curb dengue in areas prone to dengue mosquito breeding in Colombo city and its suburbs. (xii) 
  • 2012: In Mudurai, India, doctors from the government medical college and hospital dispensed a homeopathic prophylactic to thousands during a dengue fever epidemic. First to receive the remedy were doctors, nurses, hospital staff and students followed by the residents of the city. (xiii) 
  • 2012: The Government Homoeopathic Medical College and Hospital at Tirumangalam, India, distributed homeoprophylaxis for the prevention of dengue fever at two free camps during an outbreak. (xiv)
  • 2012: The Medical and Health Department of Chittorr, India, distributed homeoprophylactics to 2.5 million people during a dengue fever epidemic following the earlier success of prophylactics distributed for the swine flu epidemic in Kurnool. (xv)
  • 2012: Researchers and doctors from KEM hospital used a homeopathic prophylactic as the genus epidemicus (the remedy that matches the characteristic symptoms of the prevailing epidemic) for the treatment and prevention of dengue fever in Pune, India. (xvi)
  • 2012: The Government Homoeopathic Medical College and Hospital at Tirumangalam, India, established more than 30 camps to distribute a homeoprophylactic for dengue fever control during regional outbreaks. (xvii) 
  • 2013: AYUSH doctors in Guwahati state, India, used homeopathic remedies to treat and prevent dengue during a local outbreak. The former deputy director of health services and state programme officer of AYUSH advised that the constitutional medicine and nosodes (remedies prepared from a disease component) were among the best preventive medicines for the disease. (xviii)
  • 2014: The Sing Buri province of Thailand reported the lowest incidence of dengue fever of all provinces following the distribution of a homeoprophylactic by the Thai government. If pilot studies in a further seven provinces are equally successful, country-wide implementation of the program will be considered.(xix) 


  • 1932: Laboratory experiments published by Dr Chavanon showed that 45 children became Schick test negative (indicating the presence of antibodies to diphtheria) after being treated with homeoprophylactically. (xx) 
  • 1941: The test was repeated by Drs Patterson and Boyd with 23 out of 33 children becoming Schick test negative after being given the prophylactic. (xxi) 
  • 1947: Dr Roux repeated the test and produced a similar result. (xxii) 

Epidemic Fever 

  • 2007: Epidemic fever with the symptoms of: body pain; joint pains; headache; backache, chills, shivering, oedema, vomiting, cough & cold, and skin rashes, spread through Kerala, India. The Government's Rapid Action Epidemic Control Cell - Homeopathy (RAECH) quickly distributed a genus epidemicus remedy (a remedy that matches the characteristic symptoms of the prevailing epidemic). Two months later, they followed up with a study that found the overall percentage of protection offered by the remedy was 76.2% and the average protection rate was 73.83%. The percentage of protection was higher in those who had taken the genus epidemicus properly and the protection rate higher among those who had not taken other medications at the same time. The genus epidemicus, although administered in the prophylactic dose, also had a curative action in those who were already affected by the epidemic; many symptoms were significantly reduced and of shorter duration. There were also fewer post epidemic symptoms, less expense, and a smaller number of work or study days lost. (xxiii) 


  • 1991: Dr Eizayaga of Brazil noted both the curative and preventative effects of a common homeopathic remedy used for many years in the prevention of viral hepatitis. When treating individuals with hepatitis, he would also give their family members and school-mates the prophylactic. None contracted hepatitis in spite of being in close contact. (xxiv) 

Influenza and Respiratory Tract Infections 

  • 1968: Between 1968-70, a survey conducted in Indian factories and offices compared the results of allopathic (conventional) treatment and homeopathic treatment of influenza. The purpose of this survey was to determine the effectiveness of the nosode (a remedy prepared from a disease component) as a homeopathic preventative (prophylactic). Almost 20% of the patients treated by conventional medical physicians contracted the flu. Among the homeopathically treated patients, only 6.5% came down with the disease. Those who did become ill recovered more rapidly than their allopathically treated patients. The number of working days lost by the allopathically treated patients was nearly eight and a half times greater than those lost by homeopathic patients. (xxv) 
  • 2007: Human herpesvirus 1, human adenovirus C serotype 5, influenza A virus, human respiratory syncytial virus, human parainfluenza virus 3, human rhinovirus B serotype 14, and human coxsackievirus serotype A9 cause, among other complaints, colds, flu, sore throat, runny nose, cold sores, bronchiolitis, pneumonia, hand foot and mouth disease, and conjunctivitis. Gripp-Heel, a proprietary combination remedy demonstrated significant in vitro reductions of infectivity by 20% to 40% when tested against these viruses. (xxvi) 
  • 2010: Human rhinovirus B serotype 14, influenza A virus , H1N1 virus, herpes simplex virus 1, vesicular stomatitis virus, respiratory syncytial virus, parainfluenza type 3, and adenovirus cause, among other complaints, flu, colds, sore throat, swollen glands, oral vesicles, runny nose, cold sores, bronchiolitis, pneumonia, hand foot and mouth disease, and conjunctivitis. Proprietary products Engystol and Gripp-Heel displayed in vitro prophylactic effects when tested against theseviruses. (xxvii) 
  • 2011: Nosodes (remedies prepared from a disease component) or placebo was given for 30 days to 450 children in Brazil to test their effectiveness in preventing flu and acute respiratory infections. Over the next 12 months the incidence of diagnosed acute respiratory infection or flu was 3 times higher in the placebo group than those given the prophylactics. The researchers commented that the low cost of treatment and the absence of adverse effects made these nosodes a useful therapeutic option for the Brazilian Public Health Service. (xxviii) 

Japanese Encephalitis 

  • 1999 - 2003: Japanese encephalitis had caused significant morbidity and mortality in the state of Andhra Pradesh for several decades. In 1986, a high of 2038 cases with 638 deaths was recorded. Children were especially affected. A small decline in incidence occurred when homeopathic Belladonna was given as a prophylactic to some. When the Government Department of Indian Medicine and Homoeopathy began to systematically distribute prophylactics in 1999 via Public Health Centres, Government Homeopathic Dispensaries, homoeopathic pharmacies and homoeopathic doctors, notifications and mortality dropped to nil by 2003. The prophylactics were dispensed to approximately 20 million children under 15 years of age. (xxix, xxx) 
  • 2010: Research from the School of Tropical Medicine, Kolkata, in collaboration with Central Council for Research in Homoeopathy (under the Department of AYUSH, Government of India) showed that a homeoprophylactic in a range of potencies, was successful in controlling the virus in infected chick embryos. The placebo had no effect. (xxxi) 


  • 2007-8: In late 2007, the Cuban government rapidly distributed a homeopathic nosode (a remedy prepared from a disease component) of four leptospirosis strains to 2.3 million people at high risk of infection from an annual leptospirosis epidemic. The remaining population of 8.8 million was untreated. Within weeks, the treated provinces had an 84% decrease in disease incidence while the numbers of those infected in untreated provinces continued at expected historical levels. The intervention was “strongly associated with a drastic reduction of disease incidence resulting in complete control of the epidemic.” The protective effect continued into 2008 with an 84% reduction in leptospirosis cases for the treated areas though no further prophylactic had been given. Leptospirosis infections in untreated areas increased by 22%. (xxxii)
  • 2014: A re-evaluation of the above 2007-8 Cuban leptospirosis intervention was published. It assessed the influence of potential confounders on initial results and concluded that the results supported previous conclusions that homoeoprophylaxis can be used to effectively immunize people against targeted infectious diseases such as leptospirosis. (xxxiii)


  • 2003: A malaria trial conducted in Kenya between 2003-2005 used a homeoprophylactic with a group of 33 volunteers. Twenty-one of the volunteers had experienced 1 – 3 malaria episodes in the 18 months prior to the trial. During the trial, one person thought he may have developed malaria but this was not verified by blood test. After a full recovery in a matter of hours, malaria was considered unlikely. All other participants in the trial remained malaria-free. (xxxiv) 
  • 2008: At Kendu Bay, Kenya, where malaria is endemic, 34 clients participated in a homeoprophylaxis observational field study. In the 6 months prior to the study, all participants had experienced attacks of malaria or malaria-like symptoms at least once with 71% experiencing malaria or malaria-like symptoms at least once a month or every two weeks. Over the course of the study and use of the prophylactic only 12% (4 out of the 34 respondents) experienced an attack of malaria or malaria-like symptoms. (xxxv) 
  • 2011-2013: Chhattisgarh, India is a known endemic area for malaria. Between 2004 -2010 it had an alarming increase in deaths from the disease. Determined to prevent a repeat or worsening in 2011 the Health Minister instructed that a known homeopathic treatment and prophylactic remedy be distributed to 9 areas within the affected state. The results of this initiative were "more than encouraging". Significant protection was achieved with data showing that higher the number of doses of the prophylactic, the lower the number of malaria cases. Those in unprotected areas were 5 times more likely to contract the disease. On the strength of these results the program was expanded to 20 areas in 2012 and 40 areas in 2013. (xxxvi) 
  • 2013: Researchers evaluated the efficacy of two homeoprophylactics in combination therapy against lethal murine malaria in mice. The combination of remedies showed significant preventive activity with chemosuppression that was higher than the standard drug, pyrimethamine. It also showed a moderate curative activity with complete clearance of parasites in 50% of surviving mice. The researchers stated, “These findings point to the significant antiplasmodial efficacy of the combination of these homeopathic drugs against Plasmodium berghei.” (xxxvii) 
  • 2014: A combination remedy for Plasmodium berghei in mice demonstrated considerable in vivo antimalarial activity and enhanced mean survival time. The authors concluded: “The study establishes the effectiveness of the combination against P. berghei in vivo along with the safety of the drugs to the liver and kidney functions of the host.” (xxxviii) 

Meningococcal Disease 

  • 1974: During a meningococcal epidemic in Brazil, 18,640 children were immunised homeopathically to protect against meningococcal infection, and 6,340 were not. The following results were obtained:
    • 18,640 protected homeopathically – 4 cases of meningococcal infection. 
    • 6,340 not protected – 32 cases of meningococcal infection. 
    • Based on the infection (attack) rate in the unprotected group, 94 cases of infection could have been expected in the homeopathically protected group. Instead, there were only four cases of meningococcal infection, showing that the homeopathic option was 95% effective against the meningococcal disease. (xxxix) 
  • 1998: The results of the first study (above) led to a larger government-funded study, 24 years later. It was conducted by two Professors of Medicine from the University Foundation in Blumenau, Brazil, and a Blumenau specialist physician and Health City Secretary. A total of 65,826 people between the ages of 0–20 were immunised homeopathically to protect against meningococcal disease while 23,532 were not. Over a 12 month period, the following results were obtained:
    • 65,826 protected homeopathically – 4 cases of meningococcal infection. 
    • 23,532 not protected – 20 cases of meningococcal infection. 
    • Based on the infection (attack) rate in the unprotected group, 58 cases of infection could have been expected in the homeopathically protected group. Instead, there were only four cases of meningococcal infection. Statistical analysis showed that homeopathic immunisation offered 95% protection in the first six months and 91% protection over the year against meningococcal disease. (xl) 


  • See ‘Whooping Cough’. 


  • 1800s: Dr Grimmer of Chicago treated 5,000 young children with a homeoprophylactic. None developed polio. (xli) 
  • 1850: During an epidemic of poliomyelitis, Dr Taylor Smith of Johannesburg, South Africa protected 82 people with a homeoprophylactic. Of these people, 12 came into direct contact with disease. None were infected. (xlii) 
  • 1956: In a study between 1956-58, Dr Eisfelder immunized over 6,000 children with a homeoprophylactic. No cases of polio were reported in the group and no side-effects were observed. (xliii) 
  • 1957: A severe poliomyelitis epidemic occurred in Buenos Aires. The majority of homoeopathic doctors prescribed a known homeoprophylactic as a preventative. Drug stores distributed thousands of doses to the public. None of who used the prophylactic registered a case of contagion. (xliv) 
  • 1975: During another poliomyelitis epidemic in Buenos Aires, 40,000 were given a known homeoprophylactic for the disease. None developed poliomyelitis. (xlv) 

Scarlet Fever 

  • 1799: Homeoprophylaxis was born during an epidemic of Scarlet Fever in Germany. In 1799 Samuel Hahnemann, founder of Homeopathy, discovered during an epidemic that a homeopathic remedy prevented Scarlet Fever in that particular epidemic if given to people before exposure. (xlvi) 
  • 1799: Following Hahnemann’s example (above), another eleven medical doctors prescribed that remedy during the same epidemic. They reported that of 1,646 children exposed to scarlet fever after being given the prophylactic, only 123 (7.4%) developed symptoms of infection. In contrast, the infection rate in those who did not receive the prophylactic was as high as 90%. (xlvii) 
  • 1838: The Prussian Government ordered the use of the prophylactic during all scarlet fever epidemics after a report from their protomedicus, Hufeland, showed it to be an effective prophylactic. (xlviii) 


  • 1800s: Clemens von Boenninghausen (1785-1864) used a common homeopathic remedy in both the treatment and prevention of smallpox during an epidemic. When given to uninfected family members of households with members already sick with the disease, none went on to contract it. (xlix) 
  • 1902: Dr Eaton reported that during a smallpox epidemic in Iowa, 2806 patients were treated prophylactically with a nosode (a remedy prepared from a disease component). Of the 547 patients definitely exposed, only 14 developed the disease. The protection rate from these numbers was 97%. (l) 

Viral Diseases 

  • 2007: Human herpesvirus 1, human adenovirus C serotype 5, influenza A virus, human respiratory syncytial virus, human parainfluenza virus 3, human rhinovirus B serotype 14, and human coxsackievirus serotype A9 cause, among other complaints, colds, flu, sore throat, runny nose, cold sores, bronchiolitis, pneumonia, hand foot and mouth disease, and conjunctivitis. Gripp-Heel, a proprietary combination remedy demonstrated significant in vitro reductions of infectivity by 20% to 40% when tested against these viruses. (li) 
  • 2010: Human rhinovirus B serotype 14, influenza A virus , H1N1 virus, herpes simplex virus 1, vesicular stomatitis virus, respiratory syncytial virus, parainfluenza type 3, and adenovirus cause, among other complaints, flu, colds, sore throat, swollen glands, oral vesicles, runny nose, cold sores, bronchiolitis, pneumonia, hand foot and mouth disease, and conjunctivitis. Proprietary products Engystol and Gripp-Heel displayed in vitro prophylactic effects when tested against these viruses. (lii)

Whooping Cough 

  • 1967: Dr Dorothy Shepherd provides several accounts of whooping cough prophylaxis by a nosode (a remedy prepared from a disease component). The following is one example: “Personally I have always used for years and years in whooping cough its own nosode, (…), which Dr John Clarke recommended so strongly in his monograph (...) has given me 100% protection even though it raged in a particular district; all the children on (…), either on the 12th or 30th potency, given daily, escaped it. I used it for years in the nurseries, in my private practice, in the medical clinic, and in hundreds of cases in various epidemics we went through, and truly it is a great remedy.” (liii)
  • 1987: A pilot study on whooping cough prophylaxis conducted by Dr J. English reported a reduction in whooping cough by a factor of approximately one in three when compared to the incidence of whooping cough in a similar but unprotected group. (liv) 
  • 1987: A small clinical trial on prophylaxis with a nosode (a remedy prepared from a disease component) by Dr A. Fox over a five-year period received 61 parent responses in which 5% of children definitely contracted whooping cough and 82% remained whooping cough free (the other 13% developed undiagnosed coughs). The prophylaxis was well tolerated with 67% of parents rating its effectiveness as "very good". (lv) 
  • 2004: Dr Golden compared the pertussis attack rate between unimmunised children and those given the whooping cough prophylactic during his 15-year study. From this he was able to determine efficacy. The unimmunised had an attack rate of 85% while the homeopathically protected group had an attack rate of 11.7%, producing a figure of efficacy of 86.2%. (lvi) 
  • 2012: In an Irish trial involving 112 children 1 -2 months of age, those given homeoprophylactics for childhood diseases, including whooping cough, were less likely to experience severe symptoms of the diseases if contracted than the vaccinated comparison group. (lvii)
