Homeopathy World Community

Creating Waves of Awareness

The World Health Organization (WHO) and the U.S. Center for Disease Control (CDC) have indicated their concerns about the rapid increase of anti-microbial resistance. Due primarily to the inappropriate overuse of antibiotics, bugs that can make people the sickest are increasingly able to fight off the strongest antibiotics currently available.[1]

The consequences are severe. Infections caused by resistant microbes fail to respond to treatment, resulting in prolonged illness and greater risk of death. Treatment failures also lead to longer periods of infectivity, which increase the numbers of infected people moving in the community and thus ex­pose the general population to the risk of contracting a resistant strain of infection.

The only answer to this problem as I can see is Homeopathy. With the given case of infection a Homeopath knows what to do? As rightly said by the Dr.K.C.Bhanja, Homeopaths do not give dose or drug to the patient, they give small small stimulants, which I say helps body to heal it self. I also say Homeopathic pills as Healing pills powered by nature.

The growing concern about making the body handicapped by using antibiotics, where the body can heal itself, has raised serious question about the nexus of so-called advocates of antibiotics & the pharmaceutical industry.

I would recommend you to read some more articles:
So, before we go to the world, lets us collect data of our clinical findings to substantiate our claim that Homoeopathy answer to Indiscriminate use of antibiotics.

Last paragraph of the link you listed states Quote from WHO:

"Since 1977, WHO has produced Model Lists of Essential Drugs in order to help governments select the most effec­tive and appropriate drugs in line with priority needs. The lists, which are regularly revised, also con­tribute to the rational purchasing and use of drugs. Studies have demonstrated that in those areas in which an essential drugs programme is in operation, significantly more essen­tial drugs are available, significantly fewer injections and antimicrobials are utilized, and drug stocks last about three times longer than in regions without such a programme. At present over 120 countries have implemented an essential drugs list."..................................................

Here is the problem-The WHO just wants to come out with even more toxic drugs to counteract the toxic useless prescriptions they have out already!
Allopathic meds(WHO) DO NOT CURE ANYTHING! they only cause IATROGENIC diseases -caused directly by the drugs.
see link;
for more on this

Allopathy. They create fear of infectious disease by suppressing infectious disease cures, hyping their danger , using the false Pasteurian disease theory, and making out man made diseases are infectious (AIDS, Polio), while covering up the ineffectiveness of vaccination, and the real reason for their decline, by propaganda. It is also a way to cover up iatrogenic or chemically created disease under a false viral cause.
The degenerative disease racket is kept up in a similar way: suppress the cause and cures, and use largely ineffective, but lucrative, toxic Allopathic medicine that only treats symptoms (palliates) but never cures. Disease is also created by a covert-poisoning scheme, eg fluoridation, vaccine disease, Aluminium, Junk Food etc.

The other side of the coin-
Homeopathy has proven itself for over 200+yrs via scientific data-
Dealing with pathogens/baterial and viral(cures for the incurables)

Do you really expect the WHO to promote Homeopathy?
No I am not an advocate to the policies of WHO. But, WHO has certainly got impact on the medical scene & if at all it brings out unbiased reports on Homeopathy, it will certainly have an huge impact in the society, policy makers, Health think tanks etc.
And you must be knowing The World Health Organisation states that Homoeopathy is the second most used medical system internationally, with over $1 Billon in expenditures for such therapy. Twenty to 30 percent of French & German physicians use Homoeopathy in clinical practice. In Great Britain, five Homoeopathic hospitals are part of the National health System, and over 30% of generalists use Homoeopathy. In the United states, there are more that 500 physicians and 5000 non-physicians using Homoeopathy in clinical practice, and 2.5 million Americans currently use Homoeopathic medicines – of which two-thirds are self-prescribed spending more than $250 million annually. (Lawrence M.Tierney, Jr. et al, “Current Medical Diagnosis & Treatment”, USA: The McGraw-Hill Companies, Inc. 2004 (1701-03; 43Ed))
Bravo! We must put these facts right in their face to see it up close and personal. There is major use of homeopathic remedies and clinicians. Why? Because they are effective treatments. Now we just need the numbers.
Dr Nisanth posted;"WHO has certainly got impact on the medical scene................"

My reply;
MORE ON THE WHO-(there are always two sides to every story)
The release of the virus (swineflu)was to be an essential step for triggering a pandemic that would allow the WHO to declare a Level 6 Pandemic.

There are laws and decrees that would allow the UN and WHO to take over the United States in the event of pandemic.

In addition, legislation requiring compliance with mandatory vaccinations would be put into force in the U.S. under conditions of pandemic declaration. The entire "swine flu" pandemic business is premised on a massive lie that there is no natural virus out there that poses a threat to the population.

Evidence leading to the belief that the bird flu and swine flu viruses have, in fact, been bioengineered in laboratories using funding supplied by the WHO and other government agencies, among others.

This "swine flu" is a hybrid of part swine flu, part human flu and part bird flu, something that can only come from laboratories according to many experts.

WHO's claim that this "swine flu" is spreading and a pandemic must be declared ignores the fundamental causes. The viruses that were released were created and released with the help of WHO,

and WHO is overwhelmingly responsible for the pandemic in the first place.

The symptoms of the supposed "swine flu" are indistinguishable from regular flu or from the common cold. The "swine flu" does not cause death anymore often than the regular flu causes death.

The figures for deaths reported for the "swine flu" are inconsistent and there is no clarity as to how the number of "deaths" has been documented.

There is no pandemic potential unless mass vaccinations are carried out to weaponize the flu under the guise of protecting the population.

There are reasonable grounds for believing that the mandatory vaccines will be purposely contaminated with diseases that are specifically designed to cause death.

Do you still think the WHO has our best interest?Has the WHO allowed homeopathics as a swine flu medicine?
Dear Dr Gina, I fully agree to your view & actually speaking you have enlightened me. Thanks.

A study, published in the Pediatric Infectious Disease Journal

on 2/12/01,
is the first placebo-controlled study to suggest that homeopathy is effective in the treatment of acute otitis media in young children.

Their randomized, double blind, placebo-controlled, pilot study of 75 children aged 18 months to six years with middle ear effusion and ear pain and/or fever for no more than 36 hours was conducted in Seattle Washington by Jennifer Jacobs, M.D.

Speaking of TB and homeopathics.
We all know fully well that Allopathics(antibiotics) do NOT cure TB only suppress. In fact TB can make a miasmic imprint onto the next generation.

Tuberculosis treatment using Homeopathy


Like treatment of any ailment Tuberculosis also can be treated with Homoeopathy.
Some examples:
After all what we treat is individual.

Tuberculosis is fast progressing chronic disease. Lungs,Glands,Joints,intestines and bones are common sites.

Treatment depends on the stage at which treatment starts .Early stage is very simple .A woman of 53-54 age -cough,fever in evenings with night sweats with exahustion diagnosed as PTb improved very well with Spongia 30/ 200 .with in 10-12 days cough ,fever ,night sweats and most important weakness reduced .Tuberculinum 200/1m made her totally normal.
Where it is advanced -cough with lot of phlem and lot of weight loss diagnosed as pulmonary Tb but could not tolerate allopathic treatment is improving under Bacillinum -30 and Calcarea Carb 30 alternating once in 10 days .
No of patients wants to continue Homoeopathic treatment along with allopathic treatment .Bacillinum -30 and calcarea Carb -30,or spongia 30/200,or Acid phos,or any other indicated drug has reduced duration of allopathic treatment by 50%.

Homoeopathic treatment is also effective in Tb of Glands of Cervical region(cold abcess).
Treatment which was planned for nine months ended within four months.A girl with Tb of intestines with prolonged treatment by allopathy which disturbed her menses and general growth is responding very well with Homoeopathic treatment.
In above cases Calcarea Carb and Tuberculinum are alternated with long intervals.

We think that the Aids-councils and their minions should maybe have a look at their record of cures or arrest of the disease, for they tie in closely with the conception of Aids and its origin. Those records are non-existent, since they do not and cannot cure or arrest the development of the disease. They merely suppress it as good as they can, which is also not very effective. To date, not a single case has been cured by their efforts and we can guarantee that these efforts will be fruitless and never produce a cure and will remain as fruitless in the foreseeable future. They will at best produce a further suppression to a deeper level, if that is still possible.

For, this is not a disease caused by any natural phenomenon, but a drug-disease caused by the improper treatment of something else before. As long as they follow the viral origin, they will generate a lot of money and research, but they will never come to a cure. It is necessary to understand the true origin, to appreciate there is another approach needed to study and treat this man-made scourge. They did not know and did not have the courtesy to find out.

Unnecessary prescription is one of the most glaring phenomena, simply because the doctors have little or no pharmacology – guess-work is the name of the game. They claim all sorts of things which on further scrutiny – sometimes engaged in by themselves because people claim it does not work – prove to their satisfaction the patients are right.

Here is one recent example:

Anahad O-Connor wrote the following in the NYT on January 8, 2008
The Claim: Antibiotics Will Beat a Sinus Infection.
The Facts
‘Sinus infections are all too familiar in this season. For most people, they start with a throbbing headache, swell into a fever and result in the inevitable arrival of thick nasal secretions.
‘For years, doctors have prescribed what seemed like simple cures: a prescrip-tion for an antibiotic like amoxicillin or a steroid nasal spray. They may be the standard medications, but perhaps they are not as effective as once thought. Several studies have examined their effects and found that they are no better at shortening a sinus infection than no medication at all.
‘The latest study, published in December 2007 in The Journal of the American Medical Association, looked at 240 cases. The subjects were assigned to four groups for different treatments: a full amoxicillin course for a week along with 400 units of steroid spray for 10 days, just the spray, just the amoxicillin or just a placebo. The treatments were no better than placebo, a finding shown in studies of children. The reason is not entirely clear, but researchers suspect that antibiotics may not be very good at reaching the sinuses. Experts recommend other approaches like taking ibuprofen, inhaling steam or using salt water to flush the nasal cavity.
‘The Bottom Line.
‘Antibiotics and steroid sprays do little to cure sinus infections.
(NYT Online News 01/08/2008)

But what use is an article in The Lancet, if the results do not change? Remember that they already complained more than 30 years ago about the use of immune-suppressant drugs. Then it was in a JAMA article, now in The Lancet. In the intervening years we can bet our life that many articles with the same content have been written and published by both JAMA and other Journals. When it comes to prestige, these form the Bible, but apparently the doctors do not read their Bible and Catechism. Hence we see today what we saw 30+ years ago – the same complaints. So long as such important findings are ignored, we will remain saddled with the abuse of drugs of which the doctors do not know anything.

Antibiotic Consumption at Peak Levels

From the investigations conducted by others and myself in Africa and among the gay community, it has become evident that the consumption of antibiotics is much higher than among the average population. Even there it is getting out of hand, if the above article is any indication.
Like their African counterparts with the soapbox full of antibiotics – for which diseases to use them they have no idea – the doctors have a similar drawer full of them and have as little notion about their use. Hence they are prescribed whenever it seems that it might be necessary, while in reality a cold is a viral disease against which antibiotics are useless.
Nonetheless, they are routinely prescribed, as we saw above.

It is also evident that these cause their own long-term effects. It is moreover entirely clear what they cause – Aids. To prove we are not just saying something, we will give you another few quotes from Hahnemann, supported by the pharmacopoeia.

Hahnemann Revisited

'Medicines could never cure diseases, if they did not have the power of altering the state of health. Their curative power must be owing solely to this power they possess of altering the state of health.’
(Hahnemann S. Organon §19)

Here Hahnemann gives us the definition of what drugs must be capable of, to be classed as medicines. Medicines, he says, must be able to make you sick, if they are to have any power over disease. Since they are capable of making you sick, we must carefully investigate how they make you sick.
No orthodox doctor or pharmacist has ever contemplated what the real powers of drugs are. Since they test on animals and the sick, they cannot have any clear idea what their drugs do. Such procedure is not even scientific, since it compares incompatible entities, extrapolating compatibilities that do not exist, except in the imagination.

With the disease we call Aids, the study of medicinal effects of previously taken medicines is what we considered most of all. We have looked at the medicines they took before they got sick and discovered how these medicines made these people sick. We studied the records which the doctors and Medical-Pharmaceutical Industrial Empire provided us with themselves.

We must take these records as reliable reports on the effects of those drugs – we must be able to trust them. Because if we are mistaken in our contention that these drugs can cause this syndrome, then either we cannot trust those records or we have to doubt the statement that they cannot cause these symptoms. These notions cannot both be right.
From what we know of the doctoring of orthodoxy and its results, we cannot but conclude that as long as treatment continues in the manner followed at present, we will be confronted with ever more drug-disease. We also know that the antibiotics craze has created untold problems in the treatment of disease.
We further know that the Arndt-Schultz law is completely ignored, although tell-ing the doctors that massive doses suppress and ultimately kill the patient. Hence we should not be surprised to discover that since Hahnemann’s time – in fact since Paracelsus – drug-disease has been the complaint of the discerning physician. Therefore Hahnemann says in his Organon:

‘Much more frequent than the natural diseases associating with and complicating one another in the same body, are the morbid complications, which inappropriate treatment is apt to produce, by the long continued employment of unsuitable drugs.’ (emphasis mine)
(Hahnemann S. Organon §19)

In this particular respect, Kent says:

'We daily see that the antipathic and heteropathic methods have no perma-nence. By these means there are effected changes in the economy of the body and changes in the symptoms, but no permanent cure, the tendency being simply to the establishment of another disease, often worse than the first and without eradicating the first. We know very well that in the old school there is no plan laid down for ac-quiring knowledge of medicines, except by experimenting with them on the sick. This Hahnemann condemns as dangerous, because it subjects the sufferers to hardship and because of its uncertainty.'
(Kent J.T. Lectures on the Philosophy)

The Elephant In The Room

How can we expect that a diseased person can give us clear information on pharmacology? His disease masks the action of the medicine to such a degree that only the strongest symptoms come through. These are then rejected as mere side effects, as if they have nothing to do with the medicine or its action. They are regarded as inconveniences that are not wanted.
In addition, because it does produce ‘side effects’, they put their patients in danger. Hahnemann said:

'Every real medicine acts at all times, under all circumstances, on every living being and produces its peculiar symptoms, distinctly perceptible if the dose be large enough.' (emphasis mine)
(Hahnemann S. Organon §33)

'If we give too strong a dose of a medicine, it must prove injurious by its mere magnitude.'
(Hahnemann S. Organon 6th edition. §275)

'A medicine does harm in every dose that is too large. In strong doses it does more harm the greater its homoeopathicity and the higher the potency selected. Too large doses, especially when frequently repeated, bring about much trouble as a rule.'
(Hahnemann S. Organon 6th edition. §276)

Routinely prescribing repetitive doses is not very good practice, as we see above. Hahnemann continues by saying:

'They put the patient not seldom in danger of life or make his disease almost incurable.'
(Hahnemann S. Organon 6th edition. §276)

That fact we have seen with Aids, which is caused by massive doses of antibiotics. This is the pink elephant in the room; not any conspiracy, deliberate or accidental; not Hiv, but antibiotics. Hahnemann further warns against repetition of the dose in the Chronic Diseases, where he states the following:

'When the medicine is given in the most appropriate doses, the less effective they are, the oftener they were repeated. They served at last hardly even as weak palliatives.'
(Hahnemann S. Chronic Diseases page 3 & 4)

Now think again about these antibiotics. Each and every person with Aids we treated consumed these – up to 7 different kinds a day – for about 6 to 15 years! If that is not a dose large enough, we do not know what is.

So Hahnemann concludes:

'Medicinal substances act in the morbid changes they produce according to fixed eternal laws of nature to produce certain reliable disease symptoms, each according to its own peculiar character.'
(Hahnemann S. Organon §111)

AIDS/Antibiotics: A Definite Connection

In addition, as we shall see from their antibiotics, this character is displayed in every case of Aids that we have seen. We are certain that every discerning researcher or investigator will agree with us, after considering all the parameters and all details connected with this disease and the antibiotic connection.
For it is at least dishonest to not warn someone against the dangers of treatment – even if the doctor is ignorant of those dangers. That ignorance is displayed by over 60% of the doctors, according to AMA investigations. Naturally, the excuse given is that it is impossible for a doctor to keep abreast of all the developments in Pharmaceutical drugs, but this is no excuse in the case of antibiotics. ignorance of the law does not protect one from punishment, since one has had enough time and opportunity to study the law and know what is allowed or not. Similarly, the duty to know the side effects of the drugs prescribed, if only to adequately react when things go wrong, is not an excuse when things go wrong because of ignorance of those side effects. The effects of antibiotics should be familiar to every physician, after 60 years of use or rather, abuse. From the knowledge about abuse alone, this entire debate over Aids should have been clear from the start.
There is no excuse for failing to understand the dangers, when a medicine has been such a constant companion and been so massively prescribed over such a long period. Moreover, its deleterious effects have been known since the 1950’s, necessitating ever newer types to reduce them.
Let us investigate these statements from the Organon and the remarks that Kent has given in regards to these paragraphs. In order to furnish the material for this in-vestigation we first use the Homoeopathic Materia Medica, after which come the dif-ferent Pharmacopoeias of the Pharmaceutical drugs, as they form the rudimentary materia medica Hahnemann refers to, as well as being tested on the sick. The latter not only exclusively, since many took them before and in between the times they were sick as prophylactics.
We will do this investigation with the Pharmaceutical drugs that are known to cause symptoms – euphemistically called side effects – and are similar to the dis-ease under investigation, to ascertain whether there truly is a causal or other rela-tionship between them. Since antibiotics belong in the class of fungi, we must first understand what fungi are and what is their faction in the natural scheme of things.

The Nature of Fungi

The Ancient Vedas have a section called Ayurveda, or the Science of Longevity. In the Ayurveda the following admonition is given in regards to fungi and their consumption.

“Fungi grow mainly underground and their nature is tamasic (ignorance promoting). Anyone partaking of fungi must know they increase the mode of ignorance. Those who desire a healthy and long life, with full capacity of intelligence do not partake of fungi. Those who are mlecchas and rakshasas (those who eat everyhting - omnivorous) eat them as a matter of habit.”
(Veda-Vyasa K.D. Ayurveda)

From their effects on people and their refusal to change behaviour we can see that indeed ignorance is rife. If you know that your behaviour is giving you problems and you do not change that behaviour to avoid those problems there are but two conclusions possible:
1. You are an ignorant fool;
2. You are too addicted to the ten seconds pleasure you receive from rubbing a piece of skin – in which case you are just as much an ignorant fool.
Abstinence, however horrible it may sound to the modern-day hedonist whose goals remain instant gratification of all desires and senses is also promoted by the Ayurveda for longevity. Strangely enough, spilling one’s seed also undermines the health, especially when frequently indulged in.

So Far the fungi and Antibiotics. Next post shall go extensively into side-effects.
Hi Kaviraj
Great information,keep it commin!

We all have personal stories about the intake of antibiotics here is myn;
Before i knew anything about holistic medicine/homeopathy. I was one of thos clueless-idiots who took antibiotics for anything and everything,recom. by of course who else -my MD!
14 yrs of daily antibiotics-

Can you imagine the stupidity of modern medicine!

You would think prescribing antibiotics for one week-
one month-
4/5/6 months
with no cure-
with no results,
you would think a new set of ideas would resolve in this MD's mind?
But no-It went on for 14yrs!

I almost died from kidney failure because of this stupidity!
What on earth are these MD's learning in medical schools?

It was ONLY AFTER HOMEOPATHICS that my life turned 180-Degree's the opposite direction-I was cured finally!

From the prespective of a homeopath;
We as Homeopaths see many of these Iatrogenic cases,one after the other patients suffering adverse reactions from Antibiotic use.
The original ailment is now burried under layers of suppression and piled under more layers of secondary symptoms due to the intake of antibiotics.We dont see the patient in their purest form.
They are in a fog of allopathic iatrogenic layers.Homeopaths in the western world see more of this now than ever before due to the onset of mass media big Pharma marketing of more and more antibiotics.I see less of this in Asia where many people cant afford antibiotics.Homeopathic cases are more simple.Nothing to unfold behind the curtains of suppressive antibiotics.
We find less and less of these type of patients as the population gets more and more brainwashed by Big Pharma marketing.
Truly discusting!
That's why I diligently study the pharmacopoeia, because after all, we prescribe on totality of symptoms, many of which are iatrogenic. So we need to know the pharmacopoeia as well as MM, because Hahnemann called it a "rudimentary materia medica" with summire info on whole syndromes, instead of detailed lists of direct symptoms.
The vague terminology is another thing you must be familiar with, to know what these syndromes entail. Those descriptions are equally vague. "Diarrhoea" says nothing more than "loose stools", but we need to know the type, the smell, consistency, colour and all the other little details to have any certain idea.
Some antibiotics have been potentised - OA JUlian's New Remedies is a good source. I used them as main remedies in the treatment of Aids, especially in the beginning of treatment.
But we shall first give some more info on those antibiotics - from the pharmacopoeia. be patient, please. I want some more reactions first, to the above claim - outrageous in the eyes of some and only logical in the eyes of one who knows the pharmacopoeia and is able to read between the lines.
Medical records furnish the proof about the intake and the rest is simple deduction.

I can imagine I get no reactions, because i put my foot into my mouth. First we must discuss their nature. Sorry folks!



The organisms of the fungal lineage include mushrooms, rusts, smuts, puffballs, truffles, morels, moulds, and yeasts, as well as many less well-known organisms (Alexopoulos et al., 1996). More than 70,000 species of fungi have been described; however, some estimates of total numbers suggest that 1.5 million species may exist (Hawksworth, 1991; Hawksworth et al., 1995).
As the sister group of animals and part of the eukaryotic crown group, the fungi constitute an independent group equal in rank to that of plants and animals. They share with animals the ability to export hydrolytic enzymes that break down biopolymers, which can be absorbed for nutrition. Rather than requiring a stomach to accomplish digestion, fungi live in their own food supply and simply grow into new food as the local environment becomes nutrient depleted.
Most biologists have seen dense filamentous fungal colonies growing on rich nutrient agar plates, but in nature the filaments can be much longer and the colonies less dense. When one of the filaments contacts a food supply, the entire colony mobilizes and reallocates resources to exploit the new food. Should all food become depleted, sporulation is triggered. Although the fungal filaments and spores are microscopic, the colony can be very large with individuals of some species rivalling the mass of the largest animals or plants.
Prior to mating in sexual reproduction, individual fungi communicate with other individuals chemically via pheromones. In every phylum at least one pheromone has been characterized and they range from sesquiterpines and derivatives of the carotenoid pathway in chytridiomycetes and zygomycetes to oligopeptides in ascomycetes and basidiomycetes.

A Primary Decomposer

Within their varied natural habitats fungi usually are the primary decomposer organisms present. Many species are free-living saprobes (users of carbon fixed by other organisms) in woody substrates, soils, leaf litter, dead animals and animal exudates. The large cavities eaten out of living trees by wood-decaying fungi provide nest holes for a variety of animals and extinction of the ivory billed woodpecker was due in large part to loss, through human activity, of nesting trees in bottom land hardwoods. In some low nitrogen environments several independent groups of fungi have adaptations such as nooses and sticky knobs with which to trap and degrade nematodes and other small animals. A number of references on fungal ecology are available (Carroll and Wicklow, 1992; Cooke and Whipps, 1993; Dix and Webster, 1995).
However, many other fungi are biotrophs and in this role a number of successful groups form symbiotic associations with plants (including algae), animals (especially arthropods), and prokaryotes. Examples are lichens, mycorrhizae and leaf and stem endophytes. Although lichens may seem infrequent in polluted cities, they can form the dominant vegetation in Nordic environments and there is a better than 80% chance that any plant you find is mycorrhizal. I saw a similar occurrence of lichen while in South Brazil and thus the phenomenon is not restricted to the Nordic ebvironment alone. Similarly, tropical rainforest has as many differences in lichens as the Nordic climate and possible a great deal more. Leaf and stem endophytes are a more recent discovery, and some of these fungi can protect the plants they inhabit from herbivores and even influence flowering and other aspects of plant reproductive biology. Fungi are our most important plant pathogens, and include rusts, smuts and many ascomycetes such as the agents of Dutch elm disease and chestnut blight. Among the other well known associations are fungal parasites of animals. Humans, for example, may succumb to diseases caused by Pneumocystis (a type of pneumonia that affects individuals with suppressed immune systems), Coccidioides (valley fever), Ajellomyces (blastomycosis and histoplasmosis), and Cryptococcus (cryptococcosis) (Kwon-Chung and Bennett, 1992).
Fungal spores may be actively or passively released for dispersal by several effective methods. The air we breathe is filled with spores of species that are air dispersed. These usually are species that produce large numbers of spores, and examples include many species pathogenic on agricultural crops and trees. Other species are adapted for dispersal within or on the surfaces of animals (particularly arthropods). Some fungi are rain splash or flowing water dispersed. In a few cases the forcible release of spores is sufficient to serve as the dispersal method as well. The function of some spores is not primarily for dispersal, but to allow the organisms to survive as resistant cells during periods when the conditions of the environment are not conducive to growth.

Eco-system Functions

Fungi are vital for their ecosystem functions, some of which we have reviewed in the previous paragraphs. In addition a number of fungi are used in the processing and flavouring of foods (baker's and brewer's yeasts, Penicillia in cheese-making) and in production of antibiotics and organic acids. Other fungi produce secondary metabolites such as aflatoxins that may be potent toxins and carcinogens in food of birds, fish, humans, and other mammals.
A few species are studied as model organisms that can be used to gain knowledge of basic processes such as genetics, physiology, biochemistry, and molecular biology with results that are applicable to many organisms (Taylor et al., 1993). Some of the fungi that have been intensively studied in this way include Saccharomyces cereviseae, Neurospora crassa, and Ustilago maydis.
Most phyla appear to be terrestrial in origin, although all major groups have invaded marine and freshwater habitats. An exception to this generality is the flagellum-bearing phyla Chytridiomycota, Blastocladiomycota, and Neocallimastigomycota (collectively referred to as chytrids), which probably had an aquatic origin. Extant chytrid species also occur in terrestrial environments as plant pathogenic fungi, soil fungi, and even as anaerobic inhabitants of the guts of herbivores such as cows (all Neocallimastigomycota).


Fungi are characterized by non-motile bodies (thalli) constructed of apically elongating walled filaments (hyphae), a life cycle with sexual and asexual reproduction, usually from a common thallus, haploid thalli resulting from zygotic meiosis and heterotrophic nutrition. Spindle pole bodies, not centrioles, usually are associated with the nuclear envelope during cell division. The characteristic wall components are chitin (beta-1,4-linked homopolymers of N-acetylglucosamine in microcrystalline state) and glucans, primarily alpha-glucans (alpha-1,3- and alpha-1,6- linkages) (Griffin, 1994).
Exceptions to this characterization of fungi are well known, and include the following: Most species of chytrids have cells with a single, smooth, posteriorly inserted flagellum at some stage in the life cycle and centrioles are associated with nuclear division. The life cycles of most chytrids are poorly studied, but some (Blastocladiomycota) are known to have zygotic meiosis (therefore, alternation between haploid and diploid generations). Certain members of Mucoromycotina, Ascomycota, and Basidiomycota may lack hyphal growth during part or all of their life cycles, and, instead, produce budding yeast cells. Most fungal species with yeast growth forms contain only minute amounts of chitin in the walls of the yeast cells. A few species of Ascomycota (Ophiostomataceae) have cellulose in their walls, and certain members of Blastocladiomycota and Entomophthoromycotina lack walls during part of their life cycle (Alexopoulos et al., 1996).
So far the nature of fungi and some of their different classes, of which the Ascomycota, Chitridomycota and Microsporidia but also the Zygomycota with its sub-class Mucoromycotina are of interest to us. This is because the first class is used for antibiotics and the next two classes are known for their ability to cause disease. However, before we proceed further with the antibiotics, we first like to impress upon the reader the dangers of fungi that may infest our grains, which are related to antibiotics and for which orthodoxy has no treatment or cure.

The Origins of Antibiotics

We have seen from the above that there are several phylae in the Class of fungi that each have large amounts of different families of fungi, with countless individual species. Many of these live in the soil, and another portion spends its life on decomposing plant and animal debris, while another class of fungi attacks living plants, such as rusts, smuts, phytophtera, and other fungal diseases of plants.
We continue with the history of these fungal diseases on grains, with which the first ‘cure’ with antibiotics spontaneously took place. For these belong in te class of Ascomycota, like all penicillins and most other antibiotics. From the above tree, these fungi are the ones that have our interest here. The basidiomycota are their close brothers and some of these fungi also have found employ as medicines, of which the two under discussion here have formed a large part in the not so remote past (2000).
In the past as well as the present, most grains were and are prone to fungal diseases of which ‘mother corn’ or secale cereale, also known as claviceps purpurea, is the most famous, since it is surmised that it was also the precursor to LSD. While superficially similar in chemical structure, the effects of these two substances could not be further removed from each other as they are. In accordance with its common name, secale cereale lives on grains mainly.
Before we give it, we must mention another fungal disease of corn or maize, which is called smut. This is possibly worse than ergot poisoning, as eating anything made with the grains has severe repercussions, as we shall see.
Darnel is another grain implicated in fungal diseases. It was often eaten when the other grain harvests had been eaten by pests and a famine threatened. It also had serious consequences. Let us proceed with their description.

‘Secale Cornutum

‘Spurred rye. Claviceps purpurea. Ergot of rye. NO Fungi.

‘Ergot, in all grains and grasses.

‘A black horn-like spur, into which the grains of rye are changed by the fungus Claviceps purpurea. Rye and other cereals such as grasses are apt to be affected with ergot disease when grown on damp, ill-drained paddocks, which are water-logged.

“If breeding cattle are grazed on pastures where infected grasses grow or are fed infected hay or straw, they are liable to drop their calves. Ergot has been known as a hastener of parturition since ancient times.”
(Allen T.F., Hering C. 1990).

‘This is a possible cause for brucellosis, also known as spontaneous abortion. The relation between ergot and brucellosis is not firmly established, but because the symptoms are so similar, the correlation must be close. Secale generally miscarries at the seventh month and brucellosis does not occur before the seventh month, so the correlation is obvious.
‘Brucellosis is very hard to eradicate by conventional means. The stables are usually treated with flame-throwers, and all cattle in the herd are generally slaughtered, yet the disease seems to take hold with equal vigour. A dose of Secale 30X given to cattle usually eradicates the disease, whether caused by ergot or brucellosis, as my practice in India has proven time and time again. It is however advisable to treat the paddock with a 6X potency and remove all grain and straw that is suspected of infection from the feedstock. After spraying, it can be safely composted.’
(Kaviraj V.d. Homoeopathy for farm and garden)

‘Another grain, darnel, is frequently infected with ergot, and many epidemics of miscarriage are due to this grain. It has had an evil reputation since ancient times and its name, darnel, means stupefied.

“Mr. A. S. Wilson in transactions of the Edinburgh Botanical Society for 1874 declared that the poisonous properties of this grass are due to ergot, which so commonly infects it. Note also that the cases of poisoning have been more frequently observed in low wet districts and during the wet season.”
(Clarke J.H. Dictionary of Materia Medica)

We discover that Secale is a rather devastating substance, which has severe repercussions on the human body. During famines darnel was frequently used as a substitute for wheat, rye and other grains. During the ergot epidemics, infected grains would be avoided, but darnel was equally dangerous, since it is the winter host for secale cereale. Ignorance of the facts led the people to use darnel, with which they then made bread.

‘Its other actions have been for the most part learned from the terrible epidemics of “Ergotism” which have occasionally devastated the districts in which rye infected with ergot has been ground into flour and eaten by the population.’
(Clarke J.H. Dictionary of Materia Medica)

We know that secale does not restrict itself to rye alone, because wheat, triticale and other grains are as prone to this fungal disease as rye ever was. Even with the modern hybrids, susceptibility is possibly greater than with the traditional varieties, simply because these varieties have been bred with specific purposes, such as resistance to pests, higher yield or by making it hardier in regards to temperature.

‘Death takes place in convulsions or else from gangrene and consequent exhaustion or from exhausting haemorrhages or discharges, such as diarrhoea. Many who escape imminent death are reduced to cachectic state, from which they never recover. They are paralysed, have limbs distorted and senses impaired. In general the sufferer retains a clear intellect and a good – even abnormally good – appetite to the last. There is incontinence of the urine, convulsions with rigidity or relaxation, specifically in the hands, which are either clenched or have the fingers spread apart. Spasmodic retching, with violent contractions of the stomach. Since the vaso-motor nerve is involved we see the same in the blood-vessels, with the fingers turning bluish-black. This in turn leads to dry gangrene of the parts.
‘The muscle fibre is very relaxed or taut. Everything seems loose and open and there is no physical action or reaction. The vessels are flabby, with passive haemorrhages, copious flow of thin, black, watery blood. It has the power to lessen the coagulation factor, effecting prothrombin time, producing a haemorrhagic diathesis, with persistent offensive bleeding. They are worse from external heat. This applies to the cholera, purpura and gangrene and all other symptoms that present themselves. There is diarrhoea of very offensive smell, skin affections, loss of other fluids. The diarrhoea is involuntary, with wide open anus. The boils are small, painful, with green contents, mature very slowly and heal slower still, exhausting the patient.’
(Clarke J.H. Dictionary of Materia Medica)

We see that the pharmacopoeia still listed secale alkaloids in 2000 for post-partum indications, but never when a live foetus is still in the womb. In 2006, these alkaloids were removed, possibly due to side effects or because they found something ‘better’. We can imagine where all the stockpiles of these dangerous drugs went, after they became ‘obsolete’. We only have to go to Africa and other third world countries and see whether they are still available there and whether they are available freely or only from pharmacies with prescriptions.
We also see that Secale cereale is not something that is without its own dangers. Because it is displaying symptoms very similar to antibiotics, the familial relationship between them must not be forgotten. In fact, it must be always kept in mind that antibiotics belong in that class of fungi or are closely related and are therefore alone simply dangerous.

More Smutty Fungi


‘Corn smut. NO Fungi. Trituration.
‘Smut, flag smut, bunt, loose smut, head scab. Found on oats, sorghum, wheat, barley, triticum and corn.
‘Like Secale, with which it should be compared, Ustilago affects animals that feed on grains affected with smut in a similar manner; they miscarry. Roullin remarks that

“sheep lose their wool, mules cast their hoofs, and chickens lay eggs without shells.”
(Clarke J.H. Dictionary of Materia Medica)

‘Like Secale, Ustilago has an affinity for the generative sphere. Clarke mentions a case of a female dog losing five foetuses at the fifth week of gestation and all hair on her body, whilst her nails were loose. In plants, the bark will loosen and it may well prove to be another remedy like Silica, which arrests dieback, another fungal disease.’
(Kaviraj V.D. Homoeopathy for Farm and Garden)

We see from these descriptions that the effects on animals show that humans can easily be equally affected. We merely sought to impress upon the reader the importance to realise these fungi grow on nearly all grains. Whether the first antibiotic to be isolated – gramicidin – was truly very different from the ergot and smut varieties, here exposed as belonging at least in the same class, has never been adequately studied.
We must also point out the fact that several modern antibiotics belong in the Ustilago class, as is evident from the pharmacopoeia. While the present pharmacopoeia (2006) no longer lists them, they were still in use in 2000, as evident from the pharmacopoeia of that year.
Again we may pose the same questions.
Why were they replaced?
What happened to all the stockpiles?
What replaced these drugs?

Superficial Differences

Naturally, we have not seen any abortions from antibiotics and so we can say with certainty that they are not directly smut species. On the other hand, we must point out that many antibiotics have the capacity to pass the placenta-barrier and are damaging to the foetus, as we shall shortly see. We can therefore conclude that the familial relationship has some definite influence on the effects of antibiotics. Such relationships bode ill for the users and more so for the abusers, as we shall also extensively show.

We like to point out another important observation in this context, which is the frequent occurrence of fungal dseases in agriculture, where these same soil-borne fungi attack our crops, because they have been deprived of their normal food-source – plant debris, dung and other organic material. The soil is bare and the fungi need to survive too, hence fungal diseases have become as much part of agriculture as of medicine and animal husbandry, where antibiotics fed to livestock cause other untold problems. The frequency of foot and mouth disease in the UK and Europe is but the tip of the iceberg. Foot and mouth is a fungal disease and antibiotics are implicated in its frequent re-appearance.
