Sound and Fury

Very true that third generation is strongly convinced with homeopathy by result on themselves. My niece 3 years old, used to tell everyone whenever they are ill that take white pills from my uncle and be healthy. She had not touched any other medicines yet. That’s great and so evident result of homeopathy. But alas the blind people not able to perceive…
Let’s recall Master Hahnemann’s dare here, “Let our results to say more than our words. 1796 – “Then let us make a brotherly compact, and all agree to give but one single simple remedy at a time for every single disease, without making much alteration in the mode of life of our pt, and then let us use our eyes to see what effect this or that medicine has, how it does good of how it fails. Is not his as simple a way of getting over the difficulty as that of Columbus with the egg?” – Essay on a New Principle

Didi Ananda Ruchira


Didi Ananda Ruchira- a true Sanyasin is a shining example for those who generally like to run in the rut of life and hesitate to make new experiments. Like famous Garibaldi, she ventured to heal one of the most detested diseases of her time and got success too. And then, she is not boastful. In all humility, she trained an army of pupils in homeopathy to eradicate disease from amongst the poor segment of society in Kenya. Let young homeopaths take a cue from her life and devote themselves to serving humanity in their own sphere of life-not essentially free.

Dr. Avinash Agnihotri

Wonderful article, I know Didi’s work in Kenya, and have experienced her work personally, I started homeopathy with her before I went for my International Diploma at the BIH, she allowed me to do my practicals with Rachael in the slum they mentioned, both of them have done so much to promote homeopathy in Africa and my respect and admiration for the project they work so hard to help people. the article shows a bit of what they are doing, they treat there so many diseases and help so many needy people, is good that others see what they can do with the small resources they have, now with the article some people around the world can help them with a small donation it will always help them to help.

Abha Light College of Natural Medicine

Very inspiring issue and such a balm to hear about your successes. I work in a homeopathic pharmacy and give advice to people who call in. We have had to stop giving advice on prophylaxis etc and have been bruised by all the negative publicity here in the UK. It is wonderful to be reminded of all the benefits of homeopathy even in these (for us) unmentionable diseases!

Isabella Wallerstein

I am deeply impressed by the article. The performance of “Abha Light College/Foundation ” is really praiseworthy. Students are of 18-60 years, so the organization has obtained liking from people of wide ranging ages. I am fully convinced that Ava Light deals with heavy problems-making those lighter.

Dear Dr,
I appreciate your article. It should serve as an eye-opener to the so called classical/conventional/bookish Homeopaths. They are spoiling the reputation of Homeopathy by their bookish knowledge. They don’t believe in prophylaxis, since is not found in their Homeopathic books. They believe in a constitutional remedy and a single dose, which is unrealistic..

Dear Alan,

I really liked your letter. It was calm, rational, well researched and non- confrontational. I hope it does reach the Junior Doctors and they respond with as much integrity as you did writing this letter and take up your invitation to find out for themselves the merits of homoeopathy. Well done.

Homeopathic Alternatives for Children with ADHD

An excellent exposition on research in ADD / ADHD, Ritalin and its use in a way that is partially homeopathic. The various research outcomes using homeopathic remedies and the suggestion that ADD / ADHD may be the result of poisoning by pesticides are real pointers for an effective, relatively safe treatment

Marvelous presentation and unbeatable analysis of the case. I wonder how many homoeopaths know about ozone as a medicine. It is high time homoeopathic college professors develop a keen interest in exploring proving of new remedies and sharing with their disciples. Thumbs up for your devoted case taking and thanks a ton for sharing.


From: Homeopathy – How It Works and How It Is Done –Part  2 – Cyril W. Smith

I’ve only just come across this article – well done on an extremely well written and scientifically detailed report. It’s of great use to see the bridges between homeopathy and acupuncture and as an acupuncturist myself, the information about the frequency-mapping of meridians is very useful.
