    and Pandemics
       Presented at the inaugural 

   “Scientific Research in Homeopathy” 
                 Conference
                     By
 Jayney Goddard FCMA, Lic.LCCH, Dip.ACH
Covered in this Lecture:
• Treatment of pandemics and epidemics by 
  homeopaths in the last 200 years

• Prophylaxis – how it developed and examples 
  of its success

                               Mortality Rate in Typhus Fever Epidemic 1813


The 1813 typhus epidemic followed in the wake of Napoleon’s march through Germany to 
attack Russia – followed by his calmitous retreat.  When the epidemic hit Leipzig, 
Hahnemann treated 180 people and lost only 2 (less than 1%) – Allopathic mortality rates 
were >30%
Prompt treatment of the disease with antibiotics reduces the mortality rate to approximately 
1%. When untreated, typhoid fever usually lasts for three weeks to a month. Death occurs in 
between 10% and 30% of untreated cases.

Historically important epidemic ‐ it was the first time a disease outbreak was traced to a 
particular source – in this case a public water pump.  The pump was closed & epidemic 
ceased. All in all 10,738  people died. The House of Commons requested a report 
regarding the various methods of  treating the epidemic. When the report was issued, 
no homeopathic figures were included. The House of Lords requested an explanation,  
and it was admitted that if the homeopathic figures were to be included in the report, it 
would quot;skew the results’ so it was suppressed.   Upon examination, the buried report  
revealed that under allopathic care the mortality was 59.2% while under homeopathic 
care mortality was only 9%.

388 cases were treated with homeopathy with a 2% death rate, while the allopathic infirmary 
had a 40‐60% death rate. In 1878, Saturnino de Meirelles and others re‐created the old Instituto
Homeopatico do Brasil and in 1880, they changed the name to Instituto Hahnemanniano do 
Brazil, which still exists. Homeopathy appears to be thriving in Brazil and is an important part of 
national health care inititives.

In the 1892 outbreak in Hamburg, Germany, about 8,600 people died. Although the city
government was generally deemed to be responsible for this outbreak – their policies
went largely unchanged. This was the last serious European cholera outbreak.
Pulte
    “There is a story told about Joseph Pulte, one of the 
•
    earliest homeopaths  in Cincinnati. When he began his 
    practice, many people were so angered  by a 
    homeopath being in town that they pelted the house 
    with eggs. He  was becoming discouraged enough to 
    think of leaving. His wife said,  quot;Joseph, do you believe 
    in the truth of homeopathy?quot; He replied in the  
    affirmative. quot;Then,quot; she said, quot;you will stay in 
    Cincinnati.“

    Shortly after, when the Cholera epidemic swept 
•
    through, Pulte was able to boast of not having lost a 
    single patient‐‐ and he was accepted into the 
    community. In the Epidemic of 1849, people crowded 
    to his door and stood in the street because the waiting 
    room was full.”
                                        (From Julian Winston)
Suicide by 
       Cholera?
A week after the premiere of his 
deeply emotional Sixth Symphony, 
Tchaikovsky was dead‐‐6 November 
1893. It is thought that he may have 
intentionally poisoned himself with 
contaminated water.   

Modest ‐ his brother and biographer 
– believed that Tchaikovsky had 
committed suicide as during a lunch 
together, Tchaikovsky poured tap 
water from a jug into his glass and 
drank a few swallows. 

Since the water was not boiled and 
cholera was once again rampaging 
St. Petersburg, Modest felt that that 
this explanation was plausible.
Cholera is still a real health threat 
and is one of the most rapidly 
fatal illnesses known.  A healthy 
person may become hypotensive 
within an hour of the onset of 
symptoms;  in a particularly 
virulent outbreak, infected 
patients can die within three 
hours if treatment is not 
provided.  Usually, the disease 
progresses from the first liquid 
stool to shock in 4 to 12 hours, 
and death can occur in 18 hours 
to several days without oral 
rehydration therapy.
(Type O blood groups are most 
susceptible and Type AB least so)

“Yellow fever statistics showing average proportion of death losses during
yellow fever epidemic of 1878 in Southern United States. These statistics
represent the mean average of losses as calculated by a commission of
yellow fever experts visiting the infected districts immediately after the
epidemic: Allopathic, 15.50 per cent; homeopathic, 6 per cent.

Here we have a mass of statistics compiled by careful, conscientious
workers, representing in the aggregate of at least 1,000,000 prescriptions
given to 500,000 patients, and the work extending over a term of years of
practice of at least 1000 physicians of each school .”

“The first set I desire to present to your notice was compiled by a reputable life
Insurance company in 1874, from the death reports of the cities of Boston for 1870,
1871 and 1872; Philadelphia for 1872, the year of the great epidemic of small-pox
there; Newark for 1872 and 1873. The table presents the average death loss to
number of patients treated during that time by the representatives of the two great
schools of medicine.”

In the records of three years of Diphtheria in Broome County, NY from  1862 to 1864, there 
was a report of an 83.6% mortality rate among the  allopaths and a 16.4% mortality rate 
among the homeopaths. (Bradford) 

Diphtheria was difficult to treat as despite its periodicity, it rarely had the same 
presentation.  Practitioners needed to be able to  quickly prescribe on an individual by 
individual basis.  Occasionally, the disease would throw up particularly definite symptoms 
thus enabling the practitioner to prescribe a genus epidemicus.

                                                   Homeopathy




Dr. T A McCann, from Dayton, Ohio  reported that 24,000 cases of flu treated allopathically had 
a mortality  rate of 28.2% while 26,000 cases of flu treated homoeopathically had a mortality 
rate of 1.05%.
This last figure was echoed and endorsed by  Dr Dean W.A.  Pearson of Philadelphia 
(Hahnemann College) who recorded 26,795 cases  of flu treated with homeopathy with the 
above result.
Gelsemium – most common Rx used in 
1918 for H5N1
Bryonia alba was also indicated . . .
. . . As was Eupatorium perfoliatum
Further Figures for 1918
• Dr Herbert Roberts from Derby Connecticut 
  requested mortality/survival data from 
  medical colleagues in his area.  30 doctors 
  responded.  They reported 6,602 cases of 
  H5N1 had been treated with homeopathy 
  with 55 deaths – this is less than 1%.

• Dr Roberts worked on a troop carrier ship in 
  WW1. On the way over to Europe he had 81 
  cases of H5N1.  “All recovered and were 
  landed.  Every man received homeopathic 
  treatment. One ship lost 31 (not 
  homeopathically treated) on the way.”
Homeopathic Prophylaxis: 
       It began with Scarlet Fever
Hahnemann’s initial foray into preventative use of remedies was the result of 
inductive genius. 
During an outbreak of scarlet fever, three children of four in a family under his care 
became ill. The fourth, who was usually the first to become ill, remained free from 
disease. 
Hahnemann reasoned that since the child had been taking Belladonna for an 
problem with her finger joints, she was in some way protected from the infection. 
Soon afterward, in a family of eight children with three already infected with 
scarlet fever, Hahnemann seized the opportunity to test the prophylactic powers 
of Belladonna. 
As he had hypothesized, all five escaped the disease despite ongoing exposure to 
their siblings.  Hahnemann continued to make frequent use of Belladonna during 
scarlet fever epidemics with great success. 
Homeopathic Prophylaxis Adopted: 
    More on Scarlet Fever
 So great was Hahnemann’s success that many allopathic physicians adopted his 
 treatment protocol and began singing the praises of homeopathic Belladonna. 
 Dudgeon (1820 – 1904) reports on ten allopaths of this time who used 
 prophylactic Belladonna on 1646 children and only 123 cases developed.  These 
 were excellent results when the attack rates were ranging as high as 90% at the 
 time.

 Hufeland, the great Protomedicus of Prussia at the time, reviewed all the results of 
 the prophylactic use of Belladonna for scarlet fever.   It is generally felt that 
 Hufeland’s subsequent declaration of its efficacy would be akin to the Surgeon 
 General of the United States recommending the use of homeopathy in the 
 treatment of AIDS today. 

 Hufeland’s support of Belladonna as a prophylactic carried so much weight that 
 the Prussian government made its use during scarlet fever epidemics obligatory in 
 1838.
Homeopathic Prophylaxis:
           Smallpox
Studies during smallpox epidemics have also given some 
valuable information. In 1902, during a smallpox epidemic in 
Iowa, Dr. Eaton reported that 2806 patients were treated 
prophylactically with Variolinum.  Of the 547 patients who 
were definitely exposed, only 14 developed the disease. 
Overall protection rate was 97%.
Meningitis Prophylaxis
• And in 1974, during a meningococcus outbreak in 
  Brazil, 18,640 patients were given Meningococcinum 
  prophylaxis while 6,430 received no treatment. The 
  treatment group reported 4 cases.  There were 32 
  cases in the no treatment group (23 times more 
  effective than no treatment).(Ref. British Medical 
  Journal, 1987:294‐6).
Polio Prophylaxis
With regard to polio, in 1850 Taylor Smith in Johannesburg, South Africa used
the nosode Lathyrus to protect 82 people against polio – no cases were
reported.

Arthur Hill Grimmer MD reported that over 5,000 children received
homeopathic Lathyrus sativa to prevent polio with 100% efficacy and no one
experienced any side effects to his knowledge.

There are reports of Heisfelder, in a study between 1956-58, homeopathically
‘vaccinated’ over 6,000 children with Lathyrus, none of which contracted polio.

In 1975, Lathyrus was given to 30,000 – 40,000 (the number varies
depending on the researcher reporting) individuals during a Buenos Aires
polio epidemic, and not one of these patients reported contracting polio.

When the report was issued,  no homeopathic figures were included. The House of Lords requested an explanation,   and it was admitted that if the homeopathic figures were to be included in the report, it  would quot;skew the results’ so it was suppressed.   Upon examination, the buried report   revealed that under allopathic care the mortality was 59.2% while under homeopathic  care mortality was only 9%.

Although the city government was generally deemed to be responsible for this outbreak – their policies went largely unchanged. This was the last serious European cholera outbreak.
  • 10. Pulte “There is a story told about Joseph Pulte, one of the  • earliest homeopaths  in Cincinnati. When he began his  practice, many people were so angered  by a  homeopath being in town that they pelted the house  with eggs. He  was becoming discouraged enough to  think of leaving. His wife said,  quot;Joseph, do you believe  in the truth of homeopathy?quot; He replied in the   affirmative. quot;Then,quot; she said, quot;you will stay in  Cincinnati.“ Shortly after, when the Cholera epidemic swept  • through, Pulte was able to boast of not having lost a  single patient‐‐ and he was accepted into the  community. In the Epidemic of 1849, people crowded  to his door and stood in the street because the waiting  room was full.” (From Julian Winston)
  • 11. Suicide by  Cholera? A week after the premiere of his  deeply emotional Sixth Symphony,  Tchaikovsky was dead‐‐6 November  1893. It is thought that he may have  intentionally poisoned himself with  contaminated water.    Modest ‐ his brother and biographer  – believed that Tchaikovsky had  committed suicide as during a lunch  together, Tchaikovsky poured tap  water from a jug into his glass and  drank a few swallows.  Since the water was not boiled and  cholera was once again rampaging  St. Petersburg, Modest felt that that  this explanation was plausible.

These statistics represent the mean average of losses as calculated by a commission of yellow fever experts visiting the infected districts immediately after the epidemic: Allopathic, 15.50 per cent; homeopathic, 6 per cent. Here we have a mass of statistics compiled by careful, conscientious workers, representing in the aggregate of at least 1,000,000 prescriptions given to 500,000 patients, and the work extending over a term of years of practice of at least 1000 physicians of each school .”

(Bradford)  Diphtheria was difficult to treat as despite its periodicity, it rarely had the same  presentation.  Practitioners needed to be able to  quickly prescribe on an individual by  individual basis.  Occasionally, the disease would throw up particularly definite symptoms  thus enabling the practitioner to prescribe a genus epidemicus.

This last figure was echoed and endorsed by  Dr Dean W.A.  Pearson of Philadelphia  (Hahnemann College) who recorded 26,795 cases  of flu treated with homeopathy with the  above result.
  • 18. Gelsemium – most common Rx used in  1918 for H5N1
  • 21. Further Figures for 1918 • Dr Herbert Roberts from Derby Connecticut  requested mortality/survival data from  medical colleagues in his area.  30 doctors  responded.  They reported 6,602 cases of  H5N1 had been treated with homeopathy  with 55 deaths – this is less than 1%. • Dr Roberts worked on a troop carrier ship in  WW1. On the way over to Europe he had 81  cases of H5N1.  “All recovered and were  landed.  Every man received homeopathic  treatment. One ship lost 31 (not  homeopathically treated) on the way.”
  • 22. Homeopathic Prophylaxis:  It began with Scarlet Fever Hahnemann’s initial foray into preventative use of remedies was the result of  inductive genius.  During an outbreak of scarlet fever, three children of four in a family under his care  became ill. The fourth, who was usually the first to become ill, remained free from  disease.  Hahnemann reasoned that since the child had been taking Belladonna for an  problem with her finger joints, she was in some way protected from the infection.  Soon afterward, in a family of eight children with three already infected with  scarlet fever, Hahnemann seized the opportunity to test the prophylactic powers  of Belladonna.  As he had hypothesized, all five escaped the disease despite ongoing exposure to  their siblings.  Hahnemann continued to make frequent use of Belladonna during  scarlet fever epidemics with great success. 
  • 23. Homeopathic Prophylaxis Adopted:  More on Scarlet Fever So great was Hahnemann’s success that many allopathic physicians adopted his  treatment protocol and began singing the praises of homeopathic Belladonna.  Dudgeon (1820 – 1904) reports on ten allopaths of this time who used  prophylactic Belladonna on 1646 children and only 123 cases developed.  These  were excellent results when the attack rates were ranging as high as 90% at the  time. Hufeland, the great Protomedicus of Prussia at the time, reviewed all the results of  the prophylactic use of Belladonna for scarlet fever.   It is generally felt that  Hufeland’s subsequent declaration of its efficacy would be akin to the Surgeon  General of the United States recommending the use of homeopathy in the  treatment of AIDS today.  Hufeland’s support of Belladonna as a prophylactic carried so much weight that  the Prussian government made its use during scarlet fever epidemics obligatory in  1838.
  • 24. Homeopathic Prophylaxis: Smallpox Studies during smallpox epidemics have also given some  valuable information. In 1902, during a smallpox epidemic in  Iowa, Dr. Eaton reported that 2806 patients were treated  prophylactically with Variolinum.  Of the 547 patients who  were definitely exposed, only 14 developed the disease.  Overall protection rate was 97%.
  • 25. Meningitis Prophylaxis • And in 1974, during a meningococcus outbreak in  Brazil, 18,640 patients were given Meningococcinum  prophylaxis while 6,430 received no treatment. The  treatment group reported 4 cases.  There were 32  cases in the no treatment group (23 times more  effective than no treatment).(Ref. British Medical  Journal, 1987:294‐6).
  • 26. Polio Prophylaxis With regard to polio, in 1850 Taylor Smith in Johannesburg, South Africa used the nosode Lathyrus to protect 82 people against polio – no cases were reported. Arthur Hill Grimmer MD reported that over 5,000 children received homeopathic Lathyrus sativa to prevent polio with 100% efficacy and no one experienced any side effects to his knowledge. There are reports of Heisfelder, in a study between 1956-58, homeopathically ‘vaccinated’ over 6,000 children with Lathyrus, none of which contracted polio. In 1975, Lathyrus was given to 30,000 – 40,000 (the number varies depending on the researcher reporting) individuals during a Buenos Aires polio epidemic, and not one of these patients reported contracting polio.
