Homeopathic Results On Massive Scale Establish Efficacy and Evidence In Cuba
A Few Brave Men and Women
A few brave men and women speak out against the mainstream and the norm. They have found something to believe in profoundly, that does not fall into the traditional way of thinking about health and disease. Yet, due to personal experience, recorded evidence and years of research and investigation, they can't turn their backs on TRUTH.
When I speak to these prominent individuals, who have great intelligence, accumulated wealth of knowledge and years of practice in the field of medicine, they return each time with the same answer.
I asked Dr Andre Saine at the Joint National Homeopathic conference in April 2012 about something he said in his talk that let me down sharply. I thought he said that times like these, when we have economic collapse, would lead to the death of homeopathy. Yet, when I passed him on the lunch line, he was able to respond and tell me I had mistaken his words. He emphasized that truth will always come out on top. The fact that homeopathy heals on so many levels, in so many diseases, in so many countries, for so many people cannot be ignored. Sure, the forces that want to retain their supremacy in the market place will fight tooth and nail to keep their standing, their enormous hold on the people's money and make them slaves of the over-the-counter and prescription drug market, the over-use of lab tests and high cost of technology.
But, in the end, people will revolt and not just because they can no longer afford these types of treatments and costly hospitalizations. People will stop in their tracks and say, "NO!" No more will they be slaves to the drug cartels. When they learn about homeopathy and how it can work for simple acute ailments, and then as prophylaxis to prevent certain types of diseases and see that whole nations implement homeopathy into the government sponsored health care, they will turn their faces toward this incredible healing modality.
10-Minute Test Kit For Dogs
Idexx Laboratories Inc. provides an in-clinic test that can diagnose canine leptospirosis, a potentially fatal bacterial infection, within 10 minutes. (Introduced 2015)
- This test cannot differentiate between the antibody from the vaccine or the infection.
- Leptospirosis is a zoonotic disease that usually strikes dogs, cattle, horses, pigs and wildlife.
- Traditionally, the microscopic agglutination test (MAT) is performed at university and commercial laboratories and may take up to a week to deliver results
Leptospirosis in Dogs Within The USA
Leptospirosis is being seen in dogs in more and more places across the U.S.
The bacterial disease presents with non-specific symptoms such as lethargy, lack of appetite, changes in urination frequency and vomiting.
“We see leptospirosis every week,” said Richard Goldstein, DVM, chief of medicine at the Animal Medical Center in New York City. The hospital is a referral center for dogs from the New York, New Jersey and Connecticut area, including “dogs who never leave Manhattan.”
. . . Animals that are outside a lot, even in urban areas, are at risk for contracting the disease.
- “It is a bacterium that is spread from the urine of mammalian species like raccoons, mice and rats,” Goldstein said. “If a dog licks a puddle on a sidewalk, or walks in wet grass or in parks where wildlife would urinate, they can ingest the bacteria.”

Leptospirosis in humans
Leptospirosis is a widespread and potentially fatal zoonosis –– a disease that can be transmitted to humans from animals. –– that is endemic in many tropical regions and causes large epidemics after heavy rainfall and flooding.
Infection results from direct or indirect exposure to infected reservoir host animals that carry the pathogen in their renal tubules and shed pathogenic leptospires in their urine. Although many wild and domestic animals can serve as reservoir hosts, the brown rat (Rattus norvegicus) is the most important source of human infections.
Individuals living in urban slum environments characterized by inadequate sanitation and poor housing are at high risk of rat exposure and leptospirosis. The global burden of leptospirosis is expected to rise with demographic shifts that favor increases in the number of urban poor in tropical regions subject to worsening storms and urban flooding due to climate change.
Data emerging from prospective surveillance studies suggest that most human leptospiral infections in endemic areas are mild or asymptomatic. Development of more severe outcomes likely depends on three factors: epidemiological conditions, host susceptibility, and pathogen virulence. Mortality increases with age, particularly in patients older than 60 years of age.
High levels of bacteremia –– presence of bacteria in the blood –– are associated with poor clinical outcomes and, based on animal model and in vitro studies, are related in part to poor recognition of leptospiral LPS by human TLR4.
Patients with severe leptospirosis experience a cytokine storm –– a potentially fatal immune reaction consisting of a positive feedback loop between cytokines and white blood cells, with highly elevated levels of various cytokines –– characterized by high levels of IL-6, TNF-alpha, and IL-10. Patients with the HLA DQ6 allele are at higher risk of disease, suggesting a role for lymphocyte stimulation by a leptospiral superantigen.
Leptospirosis typically presents as a nonspecific, acute febrile illness characterized by fever, myalgia, and headache and may be confused with other entities such as influenza and dengue fever. Newer diagnostic methods facilitate early diagnosis and antibiotic treatment.
Patients progressing to multisystem organ failure have widespread hematogenous (blood) dissemination of pathogens. Nonoliguric (high output) renal dysfunction should be supported with fluids and electrolytes. When oliguric renal failure occurs, prompt initiation of dialysis can be life saving.
Elevated bilirubin levels –– an orange-yellow pigment formed in the liver by the breakdown of hemoglobin and excreted in bile –– are due to hepatocellular damage and disruption of intercellular junctions between hepatocytes, resulting in leaking of bilirubin out of bile caniliculi.
Hemorrhagic complications are common and are associated with coagulation abnormalities. Severe pulmonary hemorrhage syndrome due to extensive alveolar hemorrhage has a fatality rate of >50 %. Readers are referred to earlier, excellent summaries related to this subject (Adler and de la Peña-Moctezuma 2010; Bharti et al. 2003; Hartskeerl et al. 2011; Ko et al. 2009; Levett 2001; McBride et al. 2005).
- The global burden of a tropical disease known as leptospirosis is far greater than previously estimated, resulting in more than 1 million new infections and nearly 59,000 deaths annually.
Dr Isaac Golden As A Guest On The Health Inn Show
The Health Inn Show brought to the screen a very special guest. Dr Isaac Golden who has written many books on the topic of vaccinations and homeopathic prophylaxis spoke about his recent work in the field.
Dr. Golden has been a homoeopathic practitioner since 1984, a well respected teacher and founding Director of the Australasian College of Hahnemannian Homoeopathy. Isaac was President of the Victorian branch of the Australian Homoeopathic Association from 1992 to 1998. In March 1999 he was awarded the Association’s Distinguished Service Award. He is Head of School, School of Holistic Medicine, Endeavor College of Natural Health, offers Degree courses in Homoeopathy. We were truly honored to have him at this time, thanks to historian Peter Morrell, who connected us.
Finlay | I find it fascinating that the same company that produces the homeopathic nosode preparations to act as vaccines against massive endemic and infectious disease, also produces the allopathic drugs for market.
As an example | The DPT or Diptheria Tetanus Pertussis Vaccine which is adsorbed onto Aluminum Hydroxide gel and given as an Intramuscular injection clearly states it contains thimerasol
- COMPOSITION: The Diphtheria-Tetanus-Pertussis (vaccine D.T.P) is a preparation of a previously detoxified and purified Diphtheria Toxoid obtained from the strain Corynebacterium diphtheriae Park Williams # 8, a previously detoxified and purified Tetanus Toxoid obtained from the strain Clostridium tetani Harvard Caracas and a suspension of previously inactivated cells of Bordetella pertussis 134, 165 y 509, all of them adsorbed onto Aluminum Hydroxide gel to which Thiomersal is added as preservative.

Massive Cuban Innoculation Against Leptospirosis in 2007
HISTORIC EVENT: A homeopathic remedy was distributed to 2.4 million people as a preventative to the typical outbreak of leptospirosis, which occurs after an area has been flooded with contaminated waters. Following the dissemination of the 'nosode' only 10 cases were reported instead of the usual several thousand.
Rats transmit Leptospirosis, an infectious disease caused by the spirochaete Leptospira to humans, causing a wide range of symptoms including high fever, severe headache, chills, muscle aches, vomiting, jaundice, red eyes, abdominal pain, diarrhea, or a rash.
Without treatment, a sickened individual could develop kidney damage, meningitis, liver failure, and respiratory distress. The Cuban government had to find a way to protect her people from the annual cycles of this epidemic due to hurricanes and floods. People lose their homes, have little sustenance and become physically impoverished without food or fresh water, emotionally drained from loss and spiritually depleted. How can people undergoing this continual type of stress and devastation improve their vital force?
The World Health Organization qualified the Finlay Research Institute of the Ministry of Public Health, which supervises and does research for both allopathic vaccinations and high quality homeopathic products. Without any hindrances to its ability to move swiftly, they were able to conduct the leptospirosis project on a massive scale.
"On October November 2007, three provinces of the eastern region of Cuba were affected by heavy rainfalls causing floods of large areas and damage to sanitary and health systems. The risk of leptospirosis infection raised extremely dangerous levels for about 2 million people whoe were exposed to potentially contaminated water.
Considering this situation, the Finlay Institute prepared a leptospira nosode 200 CH using 4 circulating strains and following international quality standards. A multidisciplinary team traveled to the affected regions to conduct the massive administration of the nosode. Coordinated action with public health system infrastructures allowed the government to administer a preventive treatment consisting in two doses (7- 9 days apart) of the nosode to about 2,4 million people (4,8 million of doses). The coverage of the intervention rose up to 95% percent of total population of the three provinces at risk. Another dose, at a higher potency (10M), was given after the hurricane Ike hit the island.
The epidemiology surveillance after the intervention showed a dramatic decrease of morbidity two weeks after and a reduction to zero mortality of hospitalized patients. The number of confirmed leptospirosis cases remained at low levels and below the expected levels according with the trends and rain regimens. The usual expectancy of infection even with allopathic vaccination would have been around a few thousand, with some deaths included.
The costs of the leptospirosis project were $200,000 (US Dollars) whereas, the costs of ‘normal’ vaccination, only for the most at-risk populations, ie children, pregnant women, and the elderly, totals about $3,000,000. With such dramatic results, further projects of this nature will be forthcoming in Cuba to address many other diseases. More information can be found at the website of the Finlay Institute.

- "In the history of knowledge there is a rich tradition regarding the representation of man as a reflection of the Universe. Therefore, man is substantially a “small world” in its psycho-physical constitution and carries within himself the information of the three kingdoms. The disease is expressed in the human microcosm, which gives voice to the substance. Homeopathy is the therapy that uses substances from each kingdom and is capable of achieving the balance of the human microcosm."
BMJ Response: British Medical Journal Good Medicine Homeopathy
An inventive little video shown below, created by Ananda More, homeopath and an owner of the Riverdale Homeopathic Clinic in Ontario, provides a snapshot of the Cuban experiment that really worked to halt a potentially deadly disease described above called leptospirosis. Ananda went to Cuba to gather information about the project and dissemination of the homeopathic remedies to the general population.
Leptospirosis is caused by exposure to several types of the Leptospira bacteria, which can be found in fresh water that has been contaminated by animal urine. It occurs in warmer climates.
It is not spread from person to person, except in vary rare cases when it is transmitted through breast milk or from a mother to her unborn child.
Risk factors include: Occupational exposure -- farmers, ranchers, slaughterhouse workers, trappers, veterinarians, loggers, sewer workers, rice field workers, and military personnel. Recreational activities -- fresh water swimming, canoeing, kayaking, and trail biking in warm areas. Household exposure -- pet dogs, domesticated livestock, rainwater catchment systems, and infected rodents. Leptospirosis is rare in the continental United States, but increasing in incidence. Hawaii has the highest number of cases in the United States.
Symptoms can take 2 - 26 days (average 10 days) to develop, and may include: Dry cough, Fever, Headache, Muscle pain, Nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea, Shaking chills. Less common symptoms include: Abdominal pain, Abnormal lung sounds, Bone pain, Conjunctivitis, Enlarged lymph glands, Enlarged spleen or liver, Joint aches, Muscle rigidity, Muscle tenderness, Skin rash, and Sore throat.

FairDinkum Radio Show Individuality, Freedom & Truth
My good friend, Alan Phillips, sent me the link to this radio show called FairDinkum Radio. Besides the fact that I absolutely love listening to the Australian accent and the announcers voice, I'm in a state of outrage and shock. Even though I did a weekly show on Vaccinations and Your Rights in the United States for a number of years, this news and extreme statement has woken me up to a new reality.
Can we, the people of this world, really be in a state of war beyond our comprehension. Are we living in a small marble that heats up like the metaphor of putting a frog in a slowly boiling pot of water? Can global warming only be the tip of the iceberg, when we think about deception, immorality and the evil that humans can assault on other humans? When I listened to the facts versus the propaganda, my need to speak out became clear. Please listen, learn and take actions to protect yourselves and your families.
Within the almost 4 hours of programming, definitely listen to Meryl speak about health freedom number five on the playlist. If the governments who threaten all alternative practitioners, we will lose our ability to choose what enters our body.
