House of Commons debate on CAM therapies 14 October 2009

Follow this link to read the latest debate on Complementary and Alternative Medicine in the House of Commons.

David Tredinnick (Bosworth, Conservative) asks some questions of Gillian Merron (Minister of State (Public Health), Department of Health; Lincoln, Labour.

Below is an excerpt of the parts that are relevant to homeopathy:

"Homeopathy has had a long tradition in the health service; it was actually used by Aneurin Bevan—all those years ago—who helped to put it in the health service. However, homeopathy has been under attack, despite the new Royal London Homeopathic hospital. The hospital and those who support homeopathy have faced difficult times, not least the attacks by the so-called scientific establishment and a letter that purported to come from the NHS—it had the NHS logo on it—in May 2007 which was signed by many retired professors of medicine. That letter should never have been sent out under the NHS letterhead.
Attacks have also been made on the efficacy of homeopathy. A letter was sent to the World Health Organisation warning against the use of homeopathy, but it ignored the very clear randomised, double-blind trials that proved that it is effective in the particular area of childhood diarrhoea on which it was criticised. Will the Government therefore be robust in their support for homeopathy and consider what can be done so that it is used more effectively in the health service?"

4,000 patients killed by NHS errors last year

Today's Independent (8 Oct 2009) reports that almost 4,000 patients died last year and a further 7,500 suffered severe harm as a result of accidents or botched treatments.

How much will that figure rise for next year's statistics given the russian roulette we are playing with young girls' health over the cervical cancer vaccine jab and the swine flu for the general population.

I believe the statistics are that 1,000 women die each year from cervical cancer and so the entire population of women have to have the cervical cancer vaccine jab???

How about saving 4,000 lives and 7,500 severely harmed lives by not giving them the wrong medicine in the first place?

Homeopathy - a safe alternative!

How effective is Conventional Medicine?

Tim on his blog here looks at the efficacy of conventional treatment as evidenced by clinical trials reported by the BMJ. A very interesting and clear exposition of the facts.

Medical Treatment is third leading course of death

"According to the Journal of the American Medical Association medical treatment is the third leading cause of death after heart disease and cancer in the US.

Homeopathy does not treat illness as an enemy and therefore does not create new illnesses"

says Eckhart Tolle in 'A New Earth"

I wonder what the statistics are for the UK?

According to The Independent last month "Hospital Blunders double since 2006" there has been a dramatic rise in the number of medical mistakes involving NHS patients. In 2007, the last year for which data is available, there were 86,085 reports of medication incidents involving the incorrect administration of drugs and treatment. 37 of those contributed directly to the patient's death.

The lighter side of the dark..from across the pond

Mike Adams of NaturalNews has this to say about the Swine Flu Vaccine:

I admit, the thought of being injected with a chemical cocktail made by a pharmaceutical company and approved by the FDA with virtually no safety testing is somewhat tempting.

Who wouldn't want the thrill and rush of being part of a grand pharmaceutical experiment, anyway?

On second thought, it may not be such a bright idea after all. Unless, of course, you enjoy the idea of falling into a long-term coma, being permanently paralyzed or suffering random neurological damage.

That's why there are ten things I'd rather do than get a swine flu vaccine shot:

#1) Eat nothing but McDonald's hamburgers and fries for 30 days straight until I cough up my own liver.

#2) Kiss an H1N1-infected pig smack on the lips.

#3) Legally change my name to "Barack Obama" and then announce it over the loudspeaker of a cowboy bar in rural Texas, just to see what happens.

#4) Be forced to work as a writer in the public relations department of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.

#5) Base jump off a tall building with nothing more than a parachute made under the same quality control oversight as FDA-approved swine flu vaccines.

#6) Be subjected to forced chemotherapy at gunpoint, just like all the other U.S. teens who are kidnapped by state authorities and forcibly injected with chemo.

#7) Have all the superfoods in my pantry secretly replaced with MSG-laced processed food products made by Frito-Lay.

#8) Work as a biological hazards disposal volunteer in the "superbug ward" of a local hospital.

#9) Drink diet soda until my brain explodes from the aspartame exposure.

#10) Get a public relations job at the White House where my sole responsibility is to show the brain-numbed masses how to stupidly sneeze into their own shirt sleeves.

Fortunately, it doesn't look like I'll have to participate in any of these activities. Nor will I be forced to get a swine flu vaccine shot. Instead, I'm betting my life on good nutrition, lots of vitamin D, a high state of personal health and the complete avoidance of hospitals, vaccines, pharmaceuticals and ridiculous health advice from the "authorities. "

Not everybody agrees with that, I've noticed. Some people prefer to play Russian Roulette with their neurology, lining up and begging to be injected with a highly experimental vaccine that somebody somewhere insists is perfectly safe.

They're also the same ones, coincidentally, who are drinking diet soda, eating processed foods and chowing down genetically modifried fast food burgers on a daily basis.

These people are so sick all the time that even if they get infected with H1N1, we won't have any way to tell! I just hope they wash their hands fifty times a day and sneeze into their shirt sleeves, too, because a new, nationally-mandated obsessive-compulsiv e disorder is precisely what America needs in the middle of a pandemic.

Homeopathy: Gold Standard in Influenza Treatment

Official journals were kept at both conventional and the many homeopathic hospitals in the USA during the Spanish Flu epidemic of 1918.

These official records reveal that while the mortality rate of people treated with traditional medicine and drugs was 30 percent, those treated by homeopathic physicians had a mortality rate of only 1.05 percent.

Of the fifteen hundred cases reported at the Homeopathic Medical Society of the District of Columbia there were only fifteen deaths. Recoveries in the National Homeopathic Hospital were 100%.

In Ohio, of 1,000 cases of influenza, Dr. T. A. McCann, MD, Dayton, Ohio reported NO DEATHS. According to Dr. Frank Wieland, MD, in Chicago, "(With) 8,000 workers we had only one death. Gelsemium was practically the only remedy used. We used no aspirin and no vaccines."

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% .

In Connecticut, 6,602 cases were reported, with 55 deaths, less than 1%. Dr. Roberts, a physician on a troop ship during WWI, had 81 cases of flu on the way over to Europe. He reported, "All recovered and were landed. Every man received homeopathic treatment."

A report to the American Institute of Homeopathy in 1921 documented the dramatic success of homeopathy in the worst flu pandemic in history. The death rate of 24,000 flu cases under conventional medical care in that study was 28.2 percent, while the death rate of 26,000 cases treated with homeopathy was a nearly miraculous 1.05 percent.

Similarly, many homeopathic physicians each reported treating thousands of patients with very few deaths.

According to these records, based on very large samples, homeopathy has a spectacular success rate in flu epidemics.

Why therefore are the BMA and the MHRA attacking a purveyor of such reportedly powerful medicine?

Why are we not handing out Gelsemium and other homeopathic remedies instead of Tamiflu, whose side effects are now all in the news?
