Letters to the Editor October 2008

I enjoyed Dr. Rozencwajg’s “Removing the Guesswork from Potency Selection”. Using the Golden Ratio to determine potency scale seems more scientific and less arbitrary. Kudos for this excellent scholarship.

Alan Schmukler’s homeopathy cartoons are just what the doctor ordered. Right on target, incisive and delightful! More of the same, please!

Joe Ford

Dear Editor,

It is too good, quite interesting and educative as well. The platform where we find the knowledge of the experienced Homoeopaths. Add more and more articles. I have been eagerly awaiting the ensuing issue, every time. Keep it up.

With regards

Dear producers of Homeopathy for Everyone,

Dear Editor,

We very much value the efforts of your innovative publication to educate others about Hahnemann’s medical system. We at the Hahnemann Center for Heilkunst (HCH) have the same mission. The HCH was founded in 1997 as a registered charitable organisation in Canada precisely to provide access to education and treatment about Heilkunst, Hahnemann’s complete system of therapeutics.

In honor of our second decade training practitioners and treating patients all over the world, we have decided to make the full text of our detailed and in-depth analysis of Hahnemann’s writings, The Dynamic Legacy, available to all free of charge. This e-book is in electronic form and accessible instantly and everywhere in the world through the Internet. It is fully searchable and contains many hyperlinks for thematic reading.

Thus, thanks to the generosity of the HCH, your readers can now go to and read the most extensive analysis and comprehensive study text of Hahnemann’s works since Kent’s Lectures.

Julian Winston wrote about an earlier version (the current one is much expanded), that it is “the first new look at the meaning of Hahnemann’s seminal work…a must read for anyone interested in the practice of homeopathy…thought-provoking…All other ‘philosophy’ books worked from Kent or the unspoken assumptions that were passed through generations.”

In addition, the HCH wishes to announce the launch of the world’s first and only Master’s Program in Heilkunst. This program is the fruit of years of dedicated research and clinical experience by Steven Decker, Chancellor of the HCH and translator of the most accurate and relevant English version of the Organon, as well as by the Directors of the HCH, Rudi Verspoor and Patty Smith. This program will take you into the depths of Hahnemann’s system of medicine as well as all of the related and supporting works of other contributors to this dynamic system, such as Goethe, Brown, Saumarez, Reich, Steiner and many other more recent researchers. This program puts all of the insights and therapeutic approaches of the natural health field and medicine into a functional and integrated whole based on natural law principles.

We are excited about this unprecedented opportunity to train others to apply therapeutically all of Hahnemann’s insights in the face of the growing complexity of disease and disorder in our modern times. The Master’s Program takes the timeless and foundational principles of rational medicine as discovered by Hahnemann and others, and applies them within the current context, with its many advances in remedies, modalities and technology.

If readers wish more information about the Master’s Program, or are having trouble accessing The Dynamic Legacy on-line, they can contact the Registrar, Hahnemann College for Heilkunst, at [email protected].

I found Dr. Roz’s article on potencies very enlightening. I would like to see more confirmation of his results.

I enjoyed Homeopathy in Ireland (Clodagh Sheehy). I had no idea there was so much homeopathy there. Please continue your series on homeopathy around the world. It’s a great way to build community.

Surgery and Homeopathy by Katja Schuut was a gift. What a wonderful resource Hpathy is!

William Brennan


it seems that hpathy has been playing a vital role in my education. I am very satisfied every time i read it.
I would like once to see the topic of diabetes. Diabetes is very common disease and i wonder how different homeopaths approach this issue. It is not easy to handle a diabetic person neither easy to cure it i assume.
I do believe that many individuals have felt overwhelmed with diabetic patients and it is probably going to be an interesting theme for discussions and presentations.

Dear Homeopathy for Everyone,

I noticed there are no articles by Rudi Verspoor in this month’s issue. I always look forward to his contribution and hope we see more articles by him in your publication in the future.

Loved “Up Through the Cracks” by Alan Schmukler. Describes western appraoch to medicine correctly. Too bad for the ones who choose to be blinded by their schemes.

Crystal Martin



I enjoy your magazine very much, especially the interviews.

Sincerely yours,

Sabine Herzig


Dear Sirs

Looking through my emails I find this is the last ezine i have had from you. I really enjot your mag-ezine

Can you check it out for me


Eileen Whicke


Yes, your free newsletter service is essential!

Haven’t read the whole issue but that Rothenberg interview seemed more like a “puff piece” than serious journalism.

Earlier issues featured a great feature (nine part audio series) which covered the basics behind the Homeopathic sciences. We need more. Amazing.

I’d like to cast my vote for a feature or two on the amazing work of Andre Sien (Montreal) in Canada.

I’ve been a homeopathic user for the past fifteen years.

Keep up the great work.

Vancouver, Canada


Dear Dr Bhatia,

Time and again the attacks on the ‘unscientificity’ of homoeopathy shows how the allopathic community in general that supports a vast pharmaceutical world is afraid of it’s effectivity and winning streak. Does homoeopathy need to say how scientific it is? when each of it’s remedy is PROVED and reproved on humans, when after the cases get ‘difficult
to cure’ are referred to homoeopaths and see good results, when some of the so called surgical cases do not remain surgical anymore with homoeopathy, do we need to say anything?

It is a fact that teaching in most of the homoeopathic colleges is not up to the mark. better and more practical training is needed. better still, the money spinning mills that most of the homoeopathic colleges have become needs to be controlled. (we all know what happens during the surprise inspections!) no more new colleges should come up till the previous ones are fully equipped to do justice to the science of imparting homoeopathic and medical knowledge. this scenerio is similar to other pathies too, so if we really get together to improve the status of teaching in homoeopathic colleges our next generations of homoeopaths will be in a better stand to soar high in their homoeopathic careers. we need to bring our students at par in allopathic knowledge too.this will help them in better communicating with the other scientists. should’nt this be the topic to discuss rather than call the system unscientific?

Dr Niva Ghosh


Good as always. I vas very impressed by the article “Removing the Guesswork from Potency Selection” and I hope you will obtain in the future more feedback from the author, as this is a very interesting subject.

Thank you and keep up the good work!



I’m normally not one to write a lot of feedbacks but this months issue contained some really useful information for me – while getting back on the homoeopathic treck after some years of hiatus.

For me, the most interesting parts are the veterinary cases and the articles and/or papers on theoretical questions and information. This months the surgery and the “guesswork” article where a big help and I’m also looking forward to read the research on gyneological complaints.

Sabine Martini-Hansske


I was greatly interested in the interview with Bernardo A Merizalde, MD. The consideration of sub-therapeutic doses of psychotropic drugs etc. is very interesting and I would like to read more on the topic. I particularly liked his calm open minded approach to the – at times very necesary – use of conventional drugs for psychiatric patients. I see so much over drugging of the elderly in my work in aged care but feel that the emotional misery and pschotic episodes that
many suffer during dementia needs to be addressed somehow. Whilst Hom. does this well patient access to the modality is restricted if possible at all and some research into the sub-theraeutic dosage in this sector could deliver greater outcomes for patients lost in the conventional system. I also found his sober attitude towards homoeopathic research and the need for replication of results very pertinent. This I agree is an area that we must not ignore or become despondent about.

Thanks for a wonderful communications portal.

Deb Maurer.


It’s amazing that you have kept the purified light of treatment safe and secure from the business world of ALLOPATHS and its complete unscientific mode of treatments who have HIJACKED the world of medicine for themselves only.
Let the torch of real treatment enter the house of all patients and let they remain safe from the tradings of treatment and ever remain healthy and wealthy which only HOMEOPATHS provides.

Dr Shamim( BHMS)


What a great article on Surgery and Homeopathy. The conversation is great too. What fun to see things ‘as it is’ with such humour.

Dr S.K Vashisht

It has become a regular feature calling Homeopathic PILL a Placebo, WHY THIS LIKING by few PREJUDICE researches towards the Homeopathic system of Medicine, in mind a doubt arises, are they against or are they being hired and paid to write something against a system of medicine founded by a qualified medical personnel Dr S.Hahneman more than 200 years ago , which hold GOOD even today It is becoming stronger day by day, its the third most popular system of medicine not only in India but world over,90% of doctors in Scotland favor Homeopathy(as published in the present article),a system which from a self taught science now being taught up to postgraduate level in regular colleges duly recognized by the universities.

Homeopathy is showing a upward trend in popularity and market by its own growth based on strong scientific base and results ,its popularity speaks the truth, the market in India is worth more than 600 crores rupees, the medicine are not only dispensed in charitable institutions, there are Government Homeopathic Hospitals , Dispensaries, there are corporate Hospitals treating patients.

Dr S.Hahnemann combined in himself a Physician, a Pharmacologist,a Pharmacist, in fact he was his own Columbus in every field of Medicine . Beside being discover of Homeopathic System of medicine he was justifiably be styled as ‘Father of Experimental Pharmacology’ as he was the first to ascertain the positive effects of Drugs on healthy
human beings.

The Common round sugar Homoeopathic pills made of pure cane sugar in various sizes since 200 years are now being prepared since few years by the leading Pharmaceuticals being used in their latest drugs ,the raw material, the method of its manufacturing is the same .

Placebo is defined as unmedicated substance looks like a medicated one and is commonly called Dummy by the Scientist or in pharmaceuticals term
In Homeopathy we use the widest range of substances which are tested and prepared according to official Pharmocoepias.
The range of substances used in the manufacturing of Homoeopathic medicine:
1.Common table salt to deadly poison Arsenic salts
2.Common Cockroach to most poisonous Cobra snake venom
3Most filthy Diseased tissue product to healthy tissue product
4 Metals Alumina to Gold and silver
5Drugs Cannabis sativa to Opium
6Common Onion to Tobaccos
7 common egg shell to Charcoal
8.Nitric acid to Mercury
9Pencillin to Insulin
10/Iron to Uranium nitricum
11 Lusan grass Medigo sativa (Alfa Alfa) to Deadly poison Aconite nap
12Glonine to Platinum
13Skimmed milk to Dogs milk
14 Saliva of rabid dog to pus of Tuberculosis abscess
15 Tulsi (Occimum s) to Neem ( Azad indica)
Its a long long very long range and do not need sophisticated instruments to prove its presence , yes we do have such instrument s to test their presence in our products at our Homoeopathic Pharmacoepia Laboratory a Government of India institution at Ghazi bad.
The method of procuring , processing and preparing Homeopathic Medicines are clearly mentioned in our Pharmcoepias.
The first Homoeopathic Pharmacoepia was published by Dr C.Casport (Leipzig Germany) in 1825.
In 1870 the first British Homeopathic Pharmacoepia was published in London
In 1897 American Homeopathic pharmacoepia was published by Otis’s clap & sons
In 1901 Homoeopathic Pharmacoepia of United states the latest has been published in 1964
In 1941 German Homoeopathic Pharmacoepia was compiled by Von Willmar Schwa be
In 1971 Homeopathic Pharmacoepia of India was published to date 9th volume are in the market by Government of India.

Let the people stop dreaming to prove that Homoeopathic system of medicine or pill is placebo, its rightly said Eyes see what mind perceives.

Homeopathy, health and humanity – dr. G. Vithoulkas

Very interesting articol, it gives me the strenght to go on with my work in homeopathy, considering the fact i am still a biginner in homeopathy, after 14 years of practicing allopathy !

Narcisa Ionascu-Ispas


THANK YOU FOR SENDING THE September issue of Homeopathy for Everyone. Its very useful for me for enhance my knowleged about homeopathy. Actully i am also a homeopathy sutudent sutding in second year and i want to start my own blog. Please suggest me what kind of articles i can published on my blog.

Ravindra Meena


I really enjoy your ezine.

Is there any chance for discussing epileptic cases- as I have problems in treating such cases-especially one -a girl suffering from Rett disease who cannot talk where the convulsion obviously seems to com from somewhere in the throat and gets worse when the girl is moved by her mother. Allopathic drugs give a certain relief in frequency of convulsion- from six to 1 per hour- but she immediately raises a white pasted mouth which does not allow her to swallow food at all. So she is very miserable at the moment and her mother is in despair. I have trated her with several
remedies- but they only slightly changed the frequency and the effects of the convulsions -for today I`m back to Stramonium.

Christina Siegfried


Dear Editor,

The answers of Sir George Vithoukas to various people have been helpful to me too and it was very essential for me to know that if the dose is not right, it can often degenerat the disease. These are minor points, but very important for a thorough healing!

Chandra Sanyal


Dr. Vithoulkas is a genius and it is great and valuable experience to read his answers to different enquiries. Thanx to you and
dr harbhajan singh


Answers by George Vithoulkas for the month of September was one of his best sessions in comparison with many of his other sessions that were not as informative as this one. I found it exceptional.

I also enjoyed the September issue since it was jamm packed with information. The article “Removing the Guesswork from Potency Selection – Dr. Joe Rozencwajgâ€? was very interesting.

Surgery and Homeopathy by Katja Schütt was another that I liked very much.

I’m still reading the issue. Not much time due to my schedule. Thanks for Ezine.

Jim Hebert


Dear Editor,

There is a reality in homeopathy that i know it as MIRACLE which is claimed by soul and essence of remedies also materia medica and extremely organon of medicine , there are symptoms and rubrics and science that tell us how to cure deseases , this have been done by pure DILUTION , SUCCUSSION , SUBSTANCE at the end POTENCY or POWER, this is the concept of homeopathy that i know not MAGIC ! this separates rationalism from skepticism .

Samuel Hahnemann , George Vithoulkas and others have taugth us the direction with greater concern for other and community . my and all practioners’ responsibility is to try to develop the community ability to contemplate the new conceptual framewrak to accept and believe homeopathy.

work with the abused children is really important , so it was better if Bernardo addressed his book or articles which studied it and also about ” adjudicated children ” that is a new demension for homeopathy .

Bernardo defined the OBJECTIVE and SUBJECTIVIT , extremely the ballance between ANALYTICAL and INTUITIVE , these two elements are linked together we should have both . Bernardo said ” we are minority ” its true , but we are challenging to have establishment , so its hopeful.

Jafar Vakili


I am Dr. Syed Islam from Homeopathy.I like Homeopathy for everyone programe. Could U please send me the Audio Verse of Organon and other facilities which U offer through my E-mail?



Fantastic section with Prof Vithoulkas! Congratulations.Regards

Kudos to another invaluable quiz analysis. I’m surprised at the number of times that the quiz scenarios have come up in my life. Elaine Lewis’ descriptions make it very easy to remember the basics of the lesson.

The August quiz featured Bryonia.

My husband tripped and fell onto concrete this past weekend, smashing his forehead and hurting his knee. (He said it felt as though someone had taken a baseball bat to the side of his leg.) The initial choice of Arnica was easy – trauma and head injury with possible concussion. A large “goose egg” swelling which developed during the day was completely gone by the next morning and no bruising. Just some surficial scrapes which Calendula can resolve.

But the next morning his knee still hurt him a lot.

He isn’t one for the homeopathy Twenty Questions approach. My main clues were that Arnica hadn’t helped his knee, and although he was still begrudgingly moving around, he had uncharacteristically asked me to do several errands for him around the house instead of getting up from his chair. I didn’t make the connection at the time, but he also mentioned several times that he needed a knee brace. Mulling over Elaine’s comments on the August quiz, since it wasn’t Rhus Tox or Arnica, I tried Bryonia. It helped a lot. He came to me later in the day asking for another dose since the first one worked so well. Within a minute or two he was grinning because he already felt it going to work. The request for a knee brace was forgotten.

I have tended to think of Bryonia only when there is fully immobilizing pain. Thanks to the August quiz analysis, I understand the range of Bryonia better and it has already paid off!
