Creating Waves of Awareness
In the many drafts during the editorial process in writing the letter to President Obama, I realized I had inadvertently left an asterisk off the end of the last sentence of the first paragraph of the letter which relates to the last page of the letter and the title of the book The Homeopathic Revolution. I want to make sure this credit is given!
This has been corrected on my website which links to the letter!
Thank you all,
Dear Mr. President,
You have said that our health-care costs and the financial health of our economy are inextricably linked. Can you imagine, Mr. President, that a monument dedicated to one of the foremost solutions to sustainable, effective, preventive and affordable health care using quantum medicine and the nanopharmacology of high-dilution remedies to prevent and cure 96% of diseases is located half a mile from the White House? The bronze statue of Samuel Hahnemann, MD (1755-1843), founder of western homeopathic medicine stands at the intersection of 16th Street and Massachusetts Avenue, visible from the White House. The statue was erected and dedicated with the help of President McKinley, a supporter of homeopathy and key members of both political parties on June 21, 1900. It is the only monument in the U.S. capital city to a physician. It acclaims Hahnemann as "Leader of the Great Medical Reformation of the Nineteenth Century," and I would add "of the 21st Century."
Western Homeopathic Medicine: A Sustainable, Effective, Affordable Solution, "The Green Medicine of the 21st Century"
I have been a registered nurse for thirty years and a classical homeopath for the last ten years. In western homeopathic medicine we have a proven system of medicine which can easily be taught to health-care professionals and to the public. In other parts of the world, it is common for families to have a homeopathic kit in their homes to deal with acute symptoms of the flu, teething, colds, bee stings, allergies and ear infections, for example, without overloading doctors’ offices and emergency rooms unnecessarily. The time to act in restoring this affordable, effective and gentle system is now.
The Next Big Frontier of Medicine
Dr. Mehmet C. Oz, a vice-chair of surgery and professor of cardiac surgery at Columbia University recently state on "Oprah", December 3, 2007, that "The next big frontier of medicine is energy." He also said that, "The cells in our body have an energy to them." Hahnemann called that the vital force which is responsible for the primary and secondary reaction to the correct homeopathic remedy restoring balance in our cells and systems. Dr. Oz also said that, "I am very approving of alternative medicine and that it is really a part of something called "global medicine" and instead of using the terms alternative or western we will use the term global medicine."
With this next big frontier of medicine we are moving away from a germ theory of disease based on the molecular, mechanistic model to a vibrational theory of disease based on an energetic level, a quantum biology level. This is western homeopathic medicine, the "green medicine of the 21st century," providing safe, approved, high-dilution remedies (nanopharmacology) that are curative and preventive with no side effects.
Mr. President, we must be bold in our approach to health care. Allopathic medicine and homeopathic medicine each has a role to play under the umbrella of western medicine, or as Dr. Oz might call it, global medicine. The science and empirical evidence is there for homeopathic medicine. We cannot allow special interests to silence this great curative medicine and keep it from the people.
Abraham Lincoln once said, "Let us have faith that right makes might, and in that faith, let us, to the end, dare to do our duty as we understand it." I know that western homeopathic medicine is the right medicine for our times and that Dr. Hahnemann did not live in vain when he developed this brilliant scientific medicine system in service to mankind over 150 years ago. It is my sincere prayer that we restore this grand medicine to our health-care system. It will serve our nation and our children well.
