Homeopathy World Community

Creating Waves of Awareness

Dear Homeopathic Colleague -
Homeopathy has suffered a very serious attack. The Young Voices of Science, a UK based group dedicated to eliminating homeopathy, sent a letter to the World Health Organization asking WHO to condemn homoeopathy in developing countries, especially in the areas of influenza, childhood diarrhoea, malaria and AIDS. WHO replied last week with statements from various Departmental Heads saying there is no indication of effectiveness of homoeopathy in any of these areas. YVoS has now circulated the response of WHO to the media and have amplified the letter as if it is a public announcement from WHO, WHICH IT IS NOT. Additionally, YVoS has stated on its website that it will be contacting the Health Ministries of all countries in the world to let them know about the WHO response and press them to condemn homoeopathy in their country.

The BBC then spread this false item and has since admitted that is was hasty and mistaken in posting the article as an official statement, without checking the facts. But if we let this go it will be too late, people will believe this dirty trick campaign. Please send emails or letters to the BBC complaint department or to any other newspapers publishing the statement.
Homeopathy not a cure, says WHO

PLEASE READ THE ATTACHED DOCUMENT WE NEED TO ACT NOW.

Best regards
Laura

Dear Laura ~ In truth, it is not the Homeopathic Community that has suffered a serious attack; it is the dissemination of this falsehood by the BBC News themselves that tells the world they have no standards, no means of filtering news, so that blatant bias speaks so loudly as to be humorous. The BBC NEWS has shown its face to the world as if they were a lobbying organization and so the people can take what they print as not worth the paper or the news-feed that is printed upon.

We are in an age where people must discern right from wrong. They must ask themselves what they believe without the imposition of powerful dominating media organizations. I think the people are smart enough to know that when they are healed by homeopathy, there is no better success and it cannot be refuted by mere words, threats or scorn.

Self knowledge, self observation, recognition that fear is rampant. The medical authorities are really running scared because their systems are crumbling. There drugs must be recalled. They must list oodles of side-effects. The people cannot afford to purchase these man-made artificial substances and are turning toward natural solutions. Power to the people.
Hi Debby,
Thanks for replying, yes the medical authorities are running scared but we must never forget their power; 1910 the Carnegie Foundation issued the infamous Flexner Report an evaluation of American medical schools chaired by Abraham Flexner, in COOPERATION with the leading members of the A.M.A. As expected the homeopathic colleges were given poor ratings. There were 22 homeopathic colleges in 1900, three years later only 2 remained. Homeopathy has always posed a serious threat to entrenched allopathic medicine. Shortly after the foundation of the AMA they decided to purge all the local medical societies of physicians who were homeopaths. And as you know they were successful in every state except for Massachusetts, due to the Boston Elite being strong advocates of Homeopathy. Economic issues will always play a major role in what is practiced and what is allowed to be practiced in medicine and the AMA and Big Pharma will not give up the fight when profit and control and let's not forget power reign supreme.
We mustn't sit on our laurels as they say.
Have a great day, hope you are finding time to sleep!!!
Love

If you want to help plan, join the campaign group.
Recently a group calling itself Voice of Young Science Network wrote to the WHO criticizing homeopathy. The WHO response was picked up and added to the mischief.

The website of Voice of Young Science Network, the group that's been attacking homeopathy via the WHO.

This organization is nothing more than a propaganda mouth for corporations and polluting industries. Their real purpose is to protect corporations from public scrutiny.


They have articles telling you that non-ionizing radiation is perfectly safe, nuclear wastes are easily manageable, vaccines can't hurt you, GM foods are safe and necessary, synthetic chemicals are better and safer than natural ones etc. etc.



The best defense for homeopathy in this case is to expose the source of the criticism. There's nothing scientific about Voice of Young Science Network. Their arguments fly in the face of scientific research and are nothing but propaganda for industry.

ON PESTICIDES

The weight of evidence does not show that eating food in the UK that has been treated with pesticides is linked to any increased risk of cancer. Otherwise, both UK and EU legislation would require immediate action. Where pesticides were found to cause cancer in experimental animals, albeit at doses substantially greater than those to which consumers will ever be exposed, the mechanism was usually shown not to be relevant to humans, and where there was any doubt they were subsequently removed from use. Secondly, there is no biological connection between how a pesticide kills insects and the likelihood that it will cause cancer."



ON CHEMICALS

Scientists are worried about the growing disconnection between the

lifestyle view of chemicals and the chemical realities of the world.

They are worried not just because people are likely to

misunderstand what chemicals are and do, but because of

the consequences for decisions about lifestyle choices,

family health and social policies.



In lifestyle commentary, chemicals are presented as

something that can be avoided, or eliminated using special

socks, soaps or diets, and that cause only harm to health

and damage to the environment. The chemical realities of the

world, by contrast, are that everything is made of chemicals,

that synthetic chemicals are often much safer for human

health than so-called ‘natural’ ones, and that unfounded

anxiety about chemicals is encouraging people to buy

into ideas and ‘remedies’ that make little scientific or

medical sense.

ON GM FOODS:

In Making Sense of GM, scientists and agriculturalists are launching a fresh public discussion about GM: one that puts GM back into the context of developing plant breeding and that responds to the public’s questions and misconceptions. Publicly funded work in particular has struggled against misconceptions about Frankenstein foods, vandalism and a costly regulatory burden.

Here are some of their funding sources:

HOMOEOPATHY ACTION ALERT-- SERIOUS ATTACK ON HOMOEOPATHY

Dear Homeopathic Colleague--

Homeopathy has suffered a very serious attack. The Voices of Young Science, a UK based group from Sense About Science, dedicated to eliminating homeopathy, sent a letter to the World Health Organization asking WHO to condemn homoeopathy in developing countries, especially in the areas of influenza, childhood diarrhoea, malaria and AIDS. WHO replied last week with statements from various Departmental Heads saying there is no indication of effectiveness of homoeopathy in any of these areas. VoYS has circulated the response of WHO to the media and have amplified the letter as if it is a public announcement from WHO, WHICH IT IS NOT. Additionally, VoYS has stated on its website that it will be contacting the Health Ministries of all countries in the world to let them know about the WHO response and press them to condemn homoeopathy in their country.

The BBC online then spread this false item, as WHO Warns Against Homeopathy Use They have since apologised and admitted that it was hasty and mistaken in posting the article as an official statement, without checking the facts and without balancing the article with input from official homeopathy organizations, and have changed the headline. But the original BBC version has been picked up by newspapers worldwide and every day more and more online sites and blogs are copying the article. If we let this go it will be too late, people will believe this dirty trick campaign.



WE ARE ASKING YOU TO DO TWO ACTIONS IMMEDIATELY:



PROTEST TO THE BBC AND NEWSPAPERS SPREADING THIS ARTICLE:

1. Please send emails or letters to the BBC complaint department AND to other newspapers publishing the statement. Tell them that this headline is false and BBC has since changed the article. (Below see: BBC response and list of Media reporting the article)
newsonline.complaints@bbc.co.uk
http://www.bbc.co.uk/complaints/handle.shtml


LAUNCH A MASS PROTEST TO WORLD HEALTH ORGANIZATION:

It is important that WHO hear from as MANY INDIVIDUALS AS POSSIBLE

· READ THE ATTACHED LETTER WHICH HAS BEEN SENT BY "HOMEOPATHY LIVES!" TO WHO.

· ADAPT IT TO YOUR OWN WORDING, WHILE KEEPING THE MAIN POINTS. IT IS BEST TO HAVE A VARIETY OF LETTERS. DON'T FORGET TO SIGN YOU NAME.

· SEND IT TO ONE OR MORE OF THE WHO EMAIL ADDRESSES BELOW



PLEASE FORWARD THIS ENTIRE EMAIL TO ALL OF YOUR HOMOEOPATHY CONTACTS. PLEASE BLIND COPY THE EMAIL ADDRESSES AND ERASE THE SENDER EMAIL ADDRESS. PLEASE ASK YOUR PATIENTS TO JOIN THE PROTEST.



Just Forwarding is not enough! Make sure to send at least two letters.



IT IS IMPORTANT THAT THE HOMOEOPATHY COMMUNITY AROUND THE WORLD STAND UP AGAINST THIS MALICIOUS ATTACK.



WHY THIS NEEDS YOUR ACTION NOW--

If you are living in the US or have no contact with developing countries, you may wonder why this is an important issue for you to act upon. In fact some suggest that no response be made and that we continue to focus our energies on our good work.



However, this attack is different---

1. This is a group (VoYS) that is aggressively dedicated to destroying homoeopathy. They have stated this on their website and in their letter to their members announcing the WHO letter. While located in the UK, they are reaching out to all countries. They have tried to influence India and right now they have specifically targeted several homoeopathy projects in Africa. They contact governmental offices, national health ministries, academic medical departments and other organizations in these countries and warn them against homoeopathy using distortion and half truths. They use every means at their disposal to disrupt or end the projects. They have only one goal-to end homeopathy in the world and they are effective and dangerous to homoeopathy.

2. Existing homoeopathy projects will suffer because of these attacks, hindering raising of funds and initiating research. We are a holistic healing community. When one of our practitioners or one location of our profession is attacked, it is an attack against all of us. Just as we would not turn our backs on treating patients with acute attacks of cholera or malaria, who without homeopathic treatment might die, we should not be complacent about this group. This is a serious acute attack and needs a like response.

3. These attacks are coming because homoeopathy is gaining approval and popularity. We must be ready to stand firmly beside the good work that we are doing and be ready to assure that all people, especially those in developing countries, have access to this healing modality. If we do not respond this could affect each and every one of us.

PLEASE TAKE ACTION NOW

STAND UP FOR HOMOEOPATHY

HOMOEOPATHY LIVES!

BBC response to complaint:



Many thanks for your e-mail. We have since updated this report and it
now includes two comments putting the case for homeopathy - one

referring to treatment for diarrhoea - although we accept that it would
have been desirable to have had these in the article earlier.

It became clear from correspondence that some readers found the original
headline - WHO warns against homeopathy use - ambiguous, and this has
been altered to reflect the fact that people are being urged not to rely
on homeopathy.

Best wishes,

WHO IS BEHIND??

The Voice of young Science Network,

which is a part of the charity Sense About Science is the body behind this uproar clearly states that , "We hope that by raising awareness of the WHO’s position on homeopathy we will be supporting those people who are taking a stand against these potentially disastrous practices."

We should not forget that earlier in 2003-2004 WHO had issued a draft on homeopathy, entitled 'Homeopathy: review and analysis of reports on controlled clinical trials' claimed that the "majority" of peer – reviewed scientific papers published over the past 40 years "have demonstrated that homeopathy is superior to placebo in placebo-controlled trials and is equivalent to conventional medicines in the treatment of illnesses, in both humans and animals". In response to which WHO was accused of being infiltrated by missionaries for alternative medicine by the conventional medics (allopaths).

This undoubtedly shows the planned strategy against the growing popularity of Homeopathy.


BUT WHY??

It is too irresponsible on the part of WHO to publish such a report without even considering the benefits of Homeopathy. WHO seems to have made no attempts at all to check the truth behind the claims of Voice of young Science Network or to assess the treatment policies or the results Homeopaths are giving in treating patients with a wide range of conditions.

How could such a supreme body as WHO overlook the success reports and projects of homeopathy and let it be guided by a single letter from Voice of young Science Network.

Large number of body of evidences have been found supporting the effectiveness of homeopathy which is strange as it seems being overlooked by WHO authorities. To enlisting some of these:

A recent high quality trial by the prestigious, WHO qualified facility, the Finlay Institute in Cuba, involving two and a half million people, found homoeopathy to be extremely effective in the prevention of Leptospirosis (Dr. Concepción Campa Huergo report to Finlay Institute ‘Nosodes 2008 conference' December 2008, to be published).
A trial conducted by Quebec homoeopathy organization in partnership with McGill University in Honduras found homoeopathy effective in preventing and treating parasitic Chagas disease (Martine Jourde report to Finlay Institute ‘Nosode 2008 conference' December 2008).
A pilot study in Ghana showing homoeopathic treatment equal to and slightly more effective than chloroquine in the treatment of acute malaria (Br Homoeopath J 1996 Apr;85(2):66-70).
The Stanford study treating tuberculosis in HIV patients resulted in significant improvement in patients receiving homeopathic immunotherapy (Stanford, Comm Br Hom Res Grp Dec 1992 22 30-9).
Furthermore, the WHO authorities have ignored the rich and well documented history of homoeopathy's success in treating major worldwide epidemics of cholera, influenza (including the 1918 epidemic), yellow fever and many other serious epidemics.

Homeopathy as a system of therapeutics has fast emerged as a medicine of the masses and is progressing towards a better future. We have given miraculous results and provided challenging cures in the developing countries in spite of low funding by research organisaions. As we know success is often met with profound criticism. So this controversy and commotion was expected.

The same view was expressed by Dr Ross of society of homeopathy when she aptly answered that "it is just another poorly wrapped attempt to discredit homeopathy by sense about the science".

TIME TO PONDER

The other side of the picture is that it is a time to Introspect. Other than being a political gimmick have we ever given it a thought that why are we facing such accusations and that too on a regular basis?

Their claim is that we have no objective results to prove
Dr. Sher and Dr. Tyler have said it all and most eloquently. If the homeopathic community does not professional defend itself- don't expect anyone to do it for you. Also remember "Voice of Young Science Network" is a STUDENT ORGANIZATION. These Dolts In Training (DIT's) have obviously been put up to writing this poorly thought out treatise- probably by Pharma. Go after them- but NO name calling- just the facts!

Before becoming the director of Sense about Science, Brown was a senior analyst in the "Risk Analysis Unit" of the PR company, Regester Larkin. "Tracey is responsible for developing tailored forecasting and risk issue analysis for our clients," her biographical note at the PR firm stated.

Regester Larkin specialises in " reputation risk management" and "crisis management, including countering campaigns by environmental, health and development NGOs.

Regester Larkin's clients are nearly all :

pharmaceutical, oil, or biotechnology companies, including BioIndustry Association, Shell Chemicals, TOTAL, Bayer, Pfizer, Aventis CropScience, and gas company BG Group.

One her Sense About Science biographical note, Brown's stint with Regester Larkin is cryptically referred to as being "a year in a more commercial environment to set up a risk research unit."

Furedi is the leading influence in the libertarian LM group.
Here's a well-written letter that David Warkentin

(Kent Homeopathic Associates) sent to people on his mailing list.

I don't know who originally wrote it, but apparently Carol Boyce (www.savingalostgeneration.com) passed it on to him:


We the undersigned are outraged at the way the World Health Organization has allowed itself to be coerced by the Sense About Science Voices of Young Science into condemning the use of homoeopathy in developing countries.
This condemnation comes after what appears to be blind acceptance by WHO of the contents of a single letter from ‘young scientists’ living in the UK in June. VoYS is an offshoot of Sense About Science, an aggressive anti -homoeopathy lobby that has well documented funding connections to pharmaceutical companies. WHO appears to have made no efforts at all to establish the veracity of the claims of VoYS or to check with the homoeopaths in the named countries on what they are doing, their treatment policies or the results they are having in treating patients with a wide range of conditions.

There is an increasing body of evidence in favour of homoeopathy’s effectiveness. The respondents from WHO’s various departments, in their rush to fulfill the ‘Young Scientists’ request to condemn homoeopathy, apparently are not aware of, or have chosen to overlook, the positive results of many research studies. e.g

· A recent high quality trial by the prestigious, WHO qualified facility, the Finlay Institute in Cuba, involving two and a half million people, found homoeopathy to be extremely effective in the prevention of Leptospirosis (Dr. Concepción Campa Huergo report to Finlay Institute ‘Nosodes 2008 conference’ December 2008, to be published).

· A trial conducted by Quebec homoeopathy organization in partnership with McGill University in Honduras found homoeopathy effective in preventing and treating parasitic Chagas disease (Martine Jourde report to Finlay Institute ‘Nosode 2008 conference’ December 2008).

· Three studies that show homoeopathy is effective in the treatment of child hood diarrhea. Furthermore, counter to the uninformed claim of Joe Martines, on behalf of Dr Elizabeth Mason, Director, WHO Department of Child and Adolescent Health and Development, rehydration was included in the protocol of the trials (See below).

· A pilot study in Ghana showing homoeopathic treatment equal to and slightly more effective than chloroquine in the treatment of acute malaria (Br Homoeopath J 1996 Apr;85(2):66-70).

· The Stanford study treating tuberculosis in HIV patients resulted in significant improvement in patients receiving homeopathic immunotherapy (Stanford, Comm Br Hom Res Grp Dec 1992 22 30-9).

Furthermore, the WHO department directors have ignored the rich and well documented history of homoeopathy’s success in treating major worldwide epidemics of cholera, influenza (including the 1918 epidemic), yellow fever and many other serious epidemics. Homoeopathy has a well developed approach to epidemics which means homoeopaths can respond rapidly to an epidemic infectious disease. In light of these and more studies of homoeopathy and the extreme challenge of emerging drug resistant epidemics in developing countries, it is cause for wonder why WHO itself has not sponsored research into homoeopathy treatment.

Homoeopaths operate in a complementary way to conventional medicine, they do not recommend stopping any prescribed conventional medicines. Treatment results of patients in the developing countries where homoeopathy is used are impressive. Patients are happier and healthier and despite the constraints of lack of funding from established research foundations, studies are being undertaken and proving homoeopathy’s effectiveness.

In 2005 the World Health Organization proposed an extremely positive report on homoeopathy and its potential in the developing world, noting that it is cost effective, has no side effects, and above all is positively health enhancing. It was only after pressure from critics of Complementary and Alternative medicine to revise it, that the report was held back and despite considerable revision it has still not been published.

The VoYS has issued a press release to the media that widely publicises the statements from the WHO Departmental Heads. VoYS has stated that they will be contacting the Health Ministries of every country to tell them of the opinion of WHO and discourage the use of homoeopathy in order to accomplish their mission to stopping the use of homoeopathy altogether. VoYS has presented the communication from WHO as a public announcement from WHO and as a way to pressure countries to alter their internal health policies. Is this the intention of WHO? Does WHO condone other organizations speaking and acting on its behalf in such a way??

We have several questions for WHO:

· How can you allow your organisation to appear to condemn homoeopathy on the basis of one letter by an antagonistic lobby that receives funding from the pharmaceutical industry and without first checking the facts?

· How can you reverse your own previous recommendations without verification and dialogue?

· Why when all over the world doctors, scientists and patients are choosing homoeopathy because of their positive experience in regaining health, does WHO decide to condemn homoeopathy? How is the WHO statement and the subsequent contact by VoYS to be received by countries such as India, where homoeopathic doctors have a long and respected record of treating all diseases, including epidemics?

· Why when Ministries of Health in many developing countries have responded to the requests of their own citizens to make homoeopathy a registered medicine, does WHO choose to lend their authority to the dedicated campaign of an anti-homoeopathy group located in the UK?

The citizens of Switzerland recently voted in a national referendum to include homoeopathy as one of their medical choices. Should the poor sick of Ghana, Botswana, Swaziland, Tanzania, Brazil, Cuba, Thailand and other developing countries, living in rural areas with little or no access to other medicines, be deprived of this safe and affordable choice? How can WHO allow, through the contents of one arbitrary letter, removal of freedom of choice from the people who need it most? Is this not an issue of basic human rights?

The VoYS press release, which was further distorted by the BBC, has gone to the media throughout the world under the headline of “WHO Warns Developing Countries against Homoeopathy.” This is a deliberately inflammatory, malicious and false declaration that appears to have the backing of WHO. As a role model of good health and disease treatment to the world, we appeal to WHO not to let commercial powers and vested interests of a small vocal group influence your stated goal of bringing the “highest possible level of health” to all the people of the world.

We urge you to reverse your premature and apparently unconsidered condemnation of homoeopathy --a safe, effective and cost-effective therapeutic option for developing countries.

Please give health a chance!

Yours truly

3 Research studies childhood diarrhoea:
Treatment of acute childhood diarrhoea in Nicaragua

This trial involved 81 children aged from 6 months to 5 years in a randomised, double-blind trial of intravenous fluids plus placebo versus intravenous fluids plus homoeopathic remedy individualised to the patient. The treatment group had a statistically significant decrease in duration of diarrhoea.
