Quotes on Homeopathy

"In the records of three years of Diphtheria in Broome County, NY from 1862
to 1864, there was a report of an 83.6% mortality rate among the allopaths
and a 16.4% mortality rate among the Homeopaths.  (Bradford)."---Julian

"When the (1813 typhus) epidemic came through Leipzig as the army pulled
back from the east, Samuel Hahnemann, the founder of homeopathy, was able to
treat 180 cases of Typhus-- losing but two.  This, at a time when the
conventional treatments were having a mortality rate of over 30%....When
Cholera finally struck Europe in 1831 the mortality rate (under conventional
treatment) was between 40% (Imperial Council of Russia)to 80% (Osler's
Practice of Medicine).  Out of five people who contracted Cholera, two to
four of them died under regular treatment.Dr.  Quin, in London, reported the
mortality in the ten homeopathic hospitals in 1831-32 as 9%....  In 1854 a
Cholera Epidemic struck London.  This was a historically important epidemic
in that it was the first time the medical community was able to trace the
outbreak to a source (a public water pump), and when the pump was closed,
the epidemic soon ceased. The House of Commons asked for a report about the
various methods of treating the epidemic.  When the report was issued, the
homeopathic figures were not included.  The House of Lords asked for an
explanation, and it was admitted that if the homeopathic figures were to be
included in the report, it would "skew the results." The suppressed report
revealed that under allopathic care the mortality was 59.2% while under
homeopathic care the mortality was only 9%."--Julian Winston

"During the 1850s, there were several epidemics of Yellow Fever in the
southern states.  This disease was eventually found to be transmitted by
mosquito.   Osler, says that the allopathic mortality from Yellow Fever is
between 15-85%.   Holcome, a homeopath, reported in 1853 a mortality of
6.43% in Natchez, and Dr. Davis, another homeopath in Natchez, reported
5.73%.  In 1878 the mortality in New Orleans was 50% under allopathic care,
and 5.6% (in 1,945 cases in the same epidemic) with homeopathic
care."---Julian Winston

"The Journal of the American Institute for Homeopathy, May, 1921, had a long
article about the use of homeopathy in the flu epidemic.  Dr.  T A McCann,
from Dayton, Ohio reported that 24,000 cases of flu treated allopathically
had a mortality rate of 28.2% while 26,000 cases of flu treated
homeopathically had a mortality rate of 1.05%.  This last figure was
supported by Dean W.A. Pearson of Philadelphia (Hahnemann College) who
collected 26,795 cases of flu treated with homeopathy with the above
result..... Dr.  Herbert A.  Roberts from Derby, CT, said that 30 physicians
in Connecticut responded to his request for data.  They reported 6,602 cases
with 55 deaths, which is less than 1%.  Dr.  Roberts was working as a
physician on a troop ship during WWI. He had 81 cases of flu on the way over
to Europe.   He reported, "All recovered and were landed. Every man received
homeopathic treatment. One ship lost 31 on the way."---Julian Winston

"What appears to emerge from the study is: a)  Nosodes can effectively stop,
in its tracks, an outbreak of a highly transmissible disease (viz kennel
cough).   b) That it does so, in this case, more effectively than the
presently available vaccines.  c)  That vaccination impairs the ability of
the animal to respond to the nosode."--Christoper Day, MA, Vet.M.B.,
M.R.C.VS. Vet.F.F.Hom (What Vets Don't Tell you about Vaccination, p 238 by
Catherine O'Driscol)

"John Saxton MRCVS VetMFHom presented a paper in 1991 describing the use of
the canine distemper nosode in disease control...The results showed that, of
dogs kept in the kennes for 8 days, 11.67% showed clinical signs of
distemper on the 5th day prior to the introduction of nosodes, dropping to
4.36% after the nosodes were introduced.   Where the entire kennel
population was taken into account...the incidence of distemper dropped from
8.05% to 2.81% afetr the introduction of nosodes."---(What Vets Don't Tell
you about Vaccination, p 240 by Catherine O'Driscol)

"Homeopathy is wholly capable of satisfying the therapeutic demands of this
age better than any other system or school of medicine."-----Dr. Charles
Menninger M.D., Founder Menninger Clinic

"Homeopathy .... cures a larger percentage of cases than any other method of
treatment and is beyond doubt safer and more economical and most complete
medical science."
Mahatma Gandhi

"effective natural remedies that have no side effects"
Dr. Robert Mendelsohn, M.D.
Professor U. of Illinois Medical School and best-selling author

"Homeopathy is the safest and more reliable approach to ailments and has
withstood the assaults of established medical practice for over 100
years."----Yehudi Menuhin, World famous violinist

"The introduction of homeopathy forced the old school doctor to stir around
and learn something of a rational nature about his business. You may
honestly feel grateful that homeopathy survived the attempts of allopaths
(the orthodox physicians to destroy it."----Mark Twain

"There have been two great revelations in my life: The first was bepop, the
second was homeopathy."----Dizzy Gillespie, great jazz musician
