No matter what walk of life you are in
what your religion is
What your belief system is around health and healing
We have seen this pandemic bring out the best in everyone.
the desire to help is universal.
We thank everyone who has helped according to
their position in society and their ability to help.
Those who have sacrificed the most are our
health care workers in all modalities.
Our politicians, who have done tremendous work in
coordinating relief efforts, and taking measures
in the best interest of the public deserve our deep gratitude.
Not to be forgotten are families,
the seedbeds of love and nurturing
where we receive love and care,
particularly when we are sick and need it the most.
For all those who have succumbed to the Coronavirus
our prayers go out to you and your families.
We wish you strength and healing through your grief.
Our hearts are with you.

about how to approach the Coronavirus
Find a Vaccine that will give
immunity to the vaccinated
against the disease.
Inject antibodies from patients
who have had the virus into
healthy patients to confer
immunity to the disease.

a strong emphasis on social
measures to contain the

centuries with books,

to the past to see what was

5. Western Medicine Homeopathy
The Western approach is to
ignore all other approaches
and points of view as though
they did not exist.
Ignore all indigenous
medicines, ignore the medical
systems that have been honed
over the centuries from many
civilizations, such as the
Chinese, Indian, Russian,
South and north American,
european and an infinitude of
other therapeutic traditions.
Treat the individual. See what
is unique in each person’s
response to the virus. Find a
remedy that matches the
patient’s response as closely
Figure out what the genus
epidemicus of the current
pandemic is. Are there 3, 4, or
five remedies that appear to
be indicated often?
6. Western Medicine Homeopathy
Holds the belief that only
what has been newly created
can have any efficacy in
fighting the Coronavirus
Another major difference in
approach between the
Western model and
homeopathy is that Allopathy
seeks a single solution: one
vaccine; one drug; one cure
for cancer that should apply
equally to everyone across
the board who has the
Homeopathy is eclectic in its
approach. Remedies from
herbal traditions from
around the world have been
incorporated into the
homeopathic materia medica
after having undergone the
Homeopaths do not seek to
find one remedy for everyone
with the same diagnosis, but
seek to find what makes this
individual with this diagnosis
unique and different from
other individuals with the
same diagnosis. We are
looking for the Strange, Rare
and Peculiar symptoms, as
these are our best guiding
symptoms to the simillimum
(The remedy that corresponds
well with the patients state).
The Holy Grail
that will confer long life,
health to the one who finds it.
7. Western Medicine Homeopathy
The search is on for one
vaccine that would treat
everyone who tests positive
for the coronavirus
The diagnosis or the disease
name becomes important,
because a uniform treatment
is sought for everyone with
the same diagnosis.
By contrast, Homeopathy
seeks to individualize. Of the
thousands of remedies in the
(Which by the way is
maintained by the FDA), which
remedy fits this patient’s
symptoms the closest.
8. Kill the Virus or Strengthen the Immune Response
These fundamental differences in point of view are at the core of
the worldwide response to the COVID19 pandemic.
Do we target the virus and leave the individual out of the
equation in our search for a vaccine or drug to combat the virus.
Or do we observe the patients and see what their immune systems
are trying to do to regain health.
The symptoms the individual produces are the defense their immune
systems launch to combat the virus.
The homeopathic approach is to copy the intelligence of the body, by
imitating the defensive measures that it is employing. For example if
the body produces a fever, then the homeopath will administer a
remedy that also produces a fever. the immune system is showing us
that the fever is what is needed to combat the virus.
9. Kill the Virus or Strengthen the Immune Response
The remedy adds an impetus to the defense launched by the person’s
own immune system by pitching in its own fever producing ability.
With the added strength of the remedy, the patient achieves the
power to push the disease on through to health.
Let’s copy the intelligence of the body and strengthen the defensive
forces with the homeopathic remedy that most closely imitates the
body’s defensive approach and turn the illness around and restore
Homeopathy has had a highly successful track record in past
epidemics and pandemics and their successes were in large measure
what enabled homeopathy to spread around the world. Homeopathy
is very popular in India, Europe and South America, and gaining
popularity again in the United States after nearly a century where
it went into a dormant period.
According to Kim Elia from Whole Health Now, “By 1900 there were
22 homeopathic medical schools, more than 100 homeopathic
hospitals, over 60 orphan asylums and old people's homes, and
1,000+ homeopathic pharmacies in the U.S.” Here is a link to Kim
Elia’s Timeline showing the systematic undercutting of homeopathy
by the AMA from 1901 to 1924. http://www.wholehealthnow.com/
10. Kill the Virus or Strengthen the Immune Response
Friends, We have forgotten homeopathy. Politicians, journalists,
and the medical establishment have all but obliterated the memory
of this stupendous healing system from the memory of the public.
The profit motive of the pharmaceutical industry and their
sponsorship of the dominant news networks, as well as the power of
the pharmacy lobby to influence politicians, and from there the
laws pertaining to the practice of medicine in this country have had
a massive impact on medicine as practiced in the United States.
With this current pandemic we are seeing the weaknesses of
Western medicine in handling epidemics and pandemics. There is no
doubt that Western Medicine is supreme when it comes to diagnosing
and testing for diseases and for surgical conditions.
11. Kill the Virus or Strengthen the Immune Response
Sadly, the fundamental weakness of Western Medicine is an
ideological one. Is the virus, the germ, or the bacteria the cause of
the disease and do we need to target and identify these things in
order to cure patients, which is the core ideology of the Western
approach to Healing? Treat the Disease not the Sick Individual.
By Contrast, the Homeopathic ideology is that the virus, germ or
bacteria are not the cause of the disease, but opportunistic agents,
which can alter the health of the patient when his/her immune
system is already in a compromised state.
The patients’ symptoms will point the way to the necessary healing
agent when observed by a trained homeopath who can read those
signs and symptoms and match them to a remedy that has produced
similar symptoms in the sick.
In Western medicine the approach is virus centric. In homeopathy the
approach is individual and symptom centric.
12. Kill the Virus or Strengthen the Immune Response
The mortality rate in previous epidemics and pandemics show us
which approach is the more effective one. During the 1918 Spanish
Flu Pandemic, in one hospital in philadelphia where both allopathic
and homeopathic medicine were used, the mortality rate for patients
treated with homeopathy was 1.05%, while it was 30% for those
treated with allopathic medicine.
The three remedies of the genus epidemicus of the Spanish Flu of
1918 were Gelsemium, Bryonia and Eupatorium Perfoliatum. These
remedies along with others could do terrific work for the
Coronavirus pandemic of 2019 and 2020 if only people knew about
them and if doctors were trained in homeopathy, as a part of their
13. Kill the Virus or Strengthen the Immune Response
Homeopathy is about healing the sick. It is not an industry where
much money can be made, in contrast to the pharmaceutical industry,
which boasts enormous profits.
The rising worldwide death toll in this COVID19-20 Epidemic is a
call to examine our belief systems and ideologies around health and
