An Evidence-Based Response to Skeptics of Homeopathy
I was an electrical engineer prior to entering alternative medicine and, in fact, I turned down my acceptance to a conventional medical school (which I had previously been very much hoping to attend) on discovering naturopathic medicine during the applications process. At that time, I had no knowledge of homeopathy, however, but was really into the gym and nutrition, and felt that I wanted to be in a…

Behind the walls of the city, boxes are lined up top to bottom, side by side perched on the armoires. Only the bathrobes, the bicycle and the wheelchair betray the obsessive compulsive order. Hydrogenated oil snacks, pudding in a cup, oatmeal, peanut butter, Granola bars and fruit leather. The smell of naphthalene competes with… Continue
The medicine of homeopathy is vibratory for the fact that we are treating a person’s vibration disturbance. Edgar Cayce (1877-1945), often called the "sleeping prophet," the "father of holistic medicine," recognized the importance of vibration when he spoke of the subtle vibratory force in the body which he called ‘life force’ and likened it to a lower electrical vibration.

For Paxil (paroxetine...formerly the #1 most… Continue

FURTHER DISCUSSIONS ON GRAY AREAS IN HOMEOTHERAPEUTIC
When I wrote “Gray Areas In Homeotherapeutic” I expected an intensive discussion, from the senior and serious clinicians, because the problems dealt in that article were of daily occurrence in clinical practice of homeopathy. To my dismay the response was meager; and what scant response that I got was in the vein as if I had committed some sacrilege against homeopathy. Then I wrote a sequel to that article. Now after a long time…
