Treatment and Prevention of Disease with Homeopathy:
Influenza, Yellow Fever, Cholera and more
Historically, homeopathy has proven many times to be more effective than allopathic medicine in the treatment and prevention of disease, with risk of harmful side effects. In a U.S. cholera outbreak in 1849, allopathic medicine saw a 48-60% death rate, while homeopathic hospitals had a documented death rate of only 3%. Roughly similar statistics still hold true for cholera today. Recent epidemiological studies show homeopathic remedies as equaling or surpassing standard vaccinations in preventing disease. There are reports in which populations that were treated homeopathically after exposure had a 100% success rate-none of the treated caught the disease.
An article published in the Journal of the American Institute of Homeopathy in May 1921 states that Dean W.A.Pearson of Philadelphia collected 26,795 cases of influenza treated by homeopathic physicians with only a mortality rate of 1.05%, while the average conventional medical approach had a mortality rate of 30%. During the 1918 influenza pandemic there were many Medical Doctors practicing homeopathic medicine throughout Europe and in America, much to the chagrin of non-homeopathic doctors and pharmacists. While conventional hospitals in the US had an 80-90% loss of life during the scarlet fever, Cholera and Flu epidemics around 1919, Homeopathic Hospitals had only a 2-5% loss. An article published in the Journal of the American Institute of Homeopathy in May 1921 states that Dean W.A.Pearson of Philadelphia collected 26,795 cases of influenza treated by homeopathic physicians with only a mortality rate of 1.05%, while the average conventional medical approach had a mortality rate of 30%. Influenza pandemics
During the epidemic of yellow fever in the southern States in 18.78, the allopaths treated 96,187 cases, of which 12,296 died; a death rate of 23.b. At the same time the homoeopathic practitioners treated 3914 cases of the same disease, of which 261 died; a death rate of 6.6. In many of the southern States, by means of unjust medical legislation, the allopaths have obtained sole control, and they refuse to permit homeopaths to practice. This accounts for the great disparity in the numbers treated.
After 200 years, homeopathy is re-emerging as a major healing approach during this era of a degenerative disease epidemic and theresurgence of infectious disease epidemics in the form of mutated ‘supergerms’. This is happening because it works. It works because it addresses the energetic realities of health and healing. We are energy, and we can only be brought into balance and wellness at our core levels by systems that recognize and honor that fact.
Unlike many ‘health care’ approaches which focus simply on the suppression of symptoms, homeopathy increases the vitality — the life force — that animates each of us. If we weaken and deplete our vitality (as suppressive therapies do), we diminish our immune function, thereby becoming increasingly susceptible to all dis-ease — physical, emotional and mental. The goal of homeopathy is to simulate the body’s own healing capacity, so that it corrects the imbalances and weaknesses that allow dis-ease to emerge.
