Peter Chappell

An interview with Peter Chappell by Alan Schmukler. Read this fascinating interview with Peter Chappell about his life with homeopathy.

In 2001 Peter Chappell quit his practice and went to Ethiopia to help find a homeopathic solution to AIDS. With thirty years experience in homeopathy and a background in research, electronics and magnetism, he first considered the normal homeopathic approach. He found this was not a viable option, due to, “the lack of information available within the homeopathic information set” and also the lack of funds. Instead, he developed a method of reverse engineering a remedy, from the totality and essence of the pathology. In this way he designed a specific remedy for AIDS, based on genus epidemicus.

He later generalized this approach to epidemic diseases and called these “second simillimum’ remedies. They are prepared by a process he only partially reveals. In 2002 he made his first designer remedy for AIDS, which he called PC1. In working with thousands of cases over a five year period, he reported that almost everyone improved. In 2004 the editors of the journal Homeopathic Links, went to Africa to evaluate his work. Convinced of its success, they recommended widespread availability of his remedy.

Peter Chappell subsequently developed remedies for Malaria, Dengue Fever, Diphtheria, Gonorrhea and many other epidemic diseases. He then extended the principle of the second simillimum to chronic ailments. Based on his own experience, Hahnemann’s comments on chronic disease and cutting-edge research, he believes that chronic diseases are based on viruses and bacteria and are in fact, slow running epidemics. He cites the example of diabetes, which is detectable at birth, but often takes half a lifetime to materialize. He notes there are many other diseases, which are also developing slowly. Peter subsequently developed “genus chronicus” remedies for MS, Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s, CFS, Hepatitis C, Lyme and other chronic diseases.

When he conceived that trauma was responsible for much illness, he developed remedies to deal with that also. Information about these remedies can be found at

Peter’s s latest creation is the use of remedies delivered as particular patterns of sound. These acoustic remedies are available on his other website ““. He sees this as a way to reach many more people. He has some free downloads, including one for bird flu, which he believes is an imminent threat.


AS: How did you first design a remedy for AIDS? What were your thought processes and what methodology can you share with us?

PC: Well first of all, I don’t reveal the whole process and that is a cause of concern and debate within the team that now works with PC remedies. Homeopaths and doctors like to know how something is made, and I fully understand and appreciate that. On the other hand, there are very good reasons not to reveal everything. As a consequence, quite a lot of homeopaths will not try my new approaches.

Potentized remedies are not understood scientifically and this is one of the fundamental weak points in homeopathy, both from a scientific point of view and from an acceptance point of view. It’s like science doesn’t really recognize something, even gravity, until it’s got the theory that somehow explains it, in own its terms. And I think it’s fairly obvious, that that’s a crazy scenario, but that is how science operates. That which it can’t explain, it doesn’t believe. Well unfortunately, potentization hasn’t been explained. And it is in this area, obviously that I make remedies.

When this basic science is not in place it’s very hard to explain something in a way that will not be ridiculed, which I think is the situation with homeopathy today. So I am very reluctant to explain something fully, which would then leave the whole situation open to ridicule, because it is ahead of the science and because the terms are not there, to explain it within science.

I should also like to mention the fact that homeopathy has become a dirty word in the world of science, a red flag word, where people immediately go into ‘I don’t believe it works’. One has to go around some convoluted argument to point out the irrationality in that position, before one even gets to the starting point of the discussion, for example about trying the remedy for AIDS and just seeing if it works. What we have seen, as Constantine Herring found out about two centuries ago, is that once you try it and it obviously works, you start to believe it. And it’s the same with my remedies.

By the way I call them resonances and I also say they are homeopathic-like remedies, as I now try to distinguish them from being exactly homeopathic, as this muddies the waters and upsets the purists. The fact that they work in every way like a homeopathic remedy does not justify calling them homeopathic in many people’s opinion. I don’t have a big problem with that, as I am trying to distance what I do as far as I can from homeopathy as a word, because of the difficulties it creates in the real world. This may not be a problem in India, but I can assure you it’s a problem in Africa. In South Africa for example, I remember a student telling me about a project she was trying to complete for her thesis. Homeopathy has been legal in South Africa since about 1842, if I remember correctly. It took two years to get past the medical ethics and efficacies committees before she could start running her project. It was a question of ignorance, education and persistence to get past the prejudices. And that was just a very simple experiment.

At the same time, I am a homeopath and my colleagues are homeopaths, and those are the people who really know how to manage the treatment of established chronic diseases. In the healing world, the people best suited to using these new remedies are the homeopaths, as they have the skills and knowledge of how to recover people from chronic diseases and they know about things like the healing crisis and when the symptom picture changes and when and why to change the remedy from first Simillimum to a second Simillimum etc. But in the real world of ministers of health and medical directors and people like that, it’s quite helpful to go without using the word homeopathy, any more than one has to.

The information I prefer to put in print about the making of the resonances is this:

PC Resonances are made by imprinting specific information into water, which has the ability to memorize and store information, as is the case with all homeopathic remedies diluted beyond Avogadro’s number. The information regarding the totality of the symptoms of a disease and its role and purpose is gathered from a range of sources. This information is synthesized into a totality and imprinted into water by a proprietary process. Pure water containing some 96% medical alcohol as a preservative, in sealed dropper bottles, is used in the manufacturing process and these bottles stay closed during the whole process.

I would like to add here that diseases are stagnant energy and that is the core phenomena and this energy needs to be addressed by the immune system and dissolved away. Once that happens, then the person returns to a more coherent energy pattern, where normal first simillimum approaches, what is commonly called classical homeopathy, can then be effective.

AS: When did you first start thinking about using acoustic remedies, your “healing downloads“, where sound triggers the healing?

PC: Regarding the acoustic remedies, the first step I made in thinking about this was bird flu. I was presented with the facts about bird flu and there was a homeopathic conference about this, in Paris I believe, and $1 million was set aside to create homeopathic answers to this. The $1 million got me thinking! Since we were short of money, chronically short of money for our work in Africa, I’m always on the alert for new sources of funds. You may not know this but most of the sources of money in this world are tied into the current medical paradigms and when the word homeopathy is used, many doors automatically shut in the funding world. So I wrote this 27 page report on how to treat bird flu, and in the process of studying bird flu I realized that if the epidemic really did hit the world in a way that seemed quite possible (and still seems increasingly possible) you could have a situation where 2 billion people at one time were actually sick with a killer flu. Now we know in principle that homeopathy will work with this, as it did in the last bird flu in 1918, because the death rate under homeopathic prescribing was about 1% and the death rate under conventional medicine at the time was anything from 10 to 30%. The situation is no different now than before, because the only (conventional) medicine that could work for bird flu is Tamiflu and that’s not in any way guaranteed.

I realized that in bird flu, there was no possibility of distributing homeopathic pills worldwide, even if we discovered them and that they worked. The postal services will collapse, for example. There will be no air travel. Everything will close down for a period of three months and it will be a very hand to mouth existence.

A way to deliver and treat, it seemed to me, was via e-mail. So I decided to engraft the information to treat bird flu, instead of onto a pill, onto a sound, and I chose classical jazz. It’s about 15 seconds long and it can be listened to on an MP3 player or a CD or even broadcast on the radio or TV. It is then a viable solution to bird flu. It only needs to be tried on a bunch of chickens and we would know ahead of time. But even that seemed to be an impossible task to achieve, without the clout of a serious medical research institution or pharmaceutical business.

But we’ve tried these sound resonances, healing downloads as we call them, on many other epidemic diseases and other diseases and they seem to work very well in some cases. Obviously in many situations the disease that appears on the surface is not the real problem, as there are many other ways the immune system is compromised. But in epidemic diseases they seem to work fine.

This then is the story of why I shifted from an oral delivery to an aural delivery. It’s very much in line with quantum physics. In the old model of healing, it’s a pharmaceutical process, and chemistry is the bottom line. In the quantum physics model of healing, its energy which is the core process and that’s electromagnetism at its core. So this is really just keeping homeopathy up with science.

AS: Did you have a chance at the $1million prize?

PC: We did apply for a slice of the $1 million, or maybe it was euros, but we were not seriously considered at all. Such are the prejudices even within homeopathy.

AS: Let me go back to your method for a moment. I understand your not wanting to reveal the process. Melanie probably withheld the 6th edition of the Organon for similar reasons. In addition to ridicule, revealing your method might spawn poor imitations by people with lesser motives. Without giving away anything proprietary, is there anything else you can share with us about the intellectual process that leads to a mathematical expression of the disease?

PC: I’ve gone as far as I am willing to go and am not prepared to elaborate further on this question. I actually doubt that it would spawn poor imitations and it’s certainly an advantage in that I can keep tight quality control. There is another question that comes to mind with this, which people commonly ask, which is what if I die? Well first of all, I can load up the pharmacies with enough supplies to last 100 years and by that time some new method of treatment would have arisen and overtaken what I am now doing with pills and drops. In fact the lifetime of an invention is nowadays only maybe a decade. It’s not that someone will improve on what I’ve done, but rather a completely new method will be evolved which supersedes it and this is possibly what will happen with homeopathy as it becomes more and more complex and refined and sophisticated. Something just a lot simpler will take over. Of course the electronic versions of my remedies, would in theory last forever, whatever forever is.

AS: There’s a lot of information and some misinformation about the efficacy of your second simillimum remedies. Could you give us a synopsis of the evidence for their success?

PC: Let’s start with AIDS and the treatment of AIDS in Africa. It was my experience after treating about a hundred cases with PC AIDS, that it always worked and there were no exceptions to it always working. This was quite a revelation to me, because obviously in homeopathic practice you never get that consistency. It’s partly because you are never treating the same disease and only that disease and nothing else case after case, week after week, month after month, and partly because it’s not how homeopathy works. You just can’t be that accurate about the first Simillimum (classical homeopathy). And obviously, I had not been involved in using the second Simillimum for epidemic diseases en masse before AIDS, so I had no prior experience of what we commonly call genius epidemicus. So it meant that when people came back after PC AIDS and they were not better, then there were only a limited number of options, all of which could be explored easily because you knew the remedy worked, so you knew there had to be an explanation for why it appears not to. There were only three explanations normally. One, the most common, was that they had nothing to eat and were living on a bread roll and a cup of tea a day. This was very easy to solve, by giving them one euro with the instructions that they must use this to eat, for one or two weeks, after which they would be recovering enough to earn money. So then they could earn money to feed the family as well as themselves. And if they followed this advice, which they usually did, they came back two weeks later virtually fit and well. This was the first time in my life that I realized that food is necessary for health! You just don’t get that sort of feedback in the West.

The second reason people didn’t get well with PC AIDS was sexual re-infection with the virus, especially from somebody having sex with someone who had a very high viral load. If a person was existing on the edge of death, but was well enough to have sex with somebody on PC AIDS, then one regular dose of their highly infected sperm was enough to set the patient back quite dramatically. Obviously condoms is a solution in this situation but there’s another catch to that. When a young woman who has AIDS is too sick to even want sex and starts to use PC AIDS, the first thing they want to do when they recover, is to have children. In their simple way, they feel better and they don’t understand, that being better still means they have the virus and being better still means they can be re-infected and being better still means their partner is infected and they should not have sex without a condom. So while there is lots of advice out there in Africa about the connection between unprotected sex and the virus, when it comes down to it and they feel like they can now finally have a baby after several have died, maybe because they finally feel well enough, it’s hard for them to realize that this is not as easy as it looks.

The third reason PC AIDS did not work was that they didn’t take it. I remember going to see a case in a very remote area of Swaziland and we finally arrived at a mud hut and there was this beautiful girl lying sick and dying with TB as well as AIDS. We knew she been given PC AIDS and therefore she should be better, so we started looking for the problem. Nobody looked like they were starving, so that wasn’t the problem, so we asked to see the [medicine] bottle. It was full and we discovered that she had taken 1 teaspoon once and that was it.

So that was the beginning of my discovery on the effect of PC AIDS. The problem was that PC AIDS did not cure the virus. In other diseases like gonorrhea we saw that PC remedies were effective, as far as we could tell, in curing the whole problem. But the fact is, that nothing cures the virus so far. The anti-retroviral drugs kill the virus only for as long as they are taken and the virus then returns if they stop. And to stop the spread of AIDS it’s necessary not just to cure the consequences of the virus which is AIDS, which is relatively easy, but to cure the virus itself. It’s possible in my opinion that this can be done with a combination of PC AIDS and other treatments both conventional and alternative, like African herbs or a combination homeopathic remedy like Canova, which is a combination of aconite, arsenicum, thuja, lachesis and bryonia. But the fact is that we just haven’t had the resources to find out. Research in AIDS and HIV requires a lot more money and a lot more clout than we have had so far. It’s not that we haven’t talked to presidents and prime ministers and ministers of health and funding organizations, we have. And it’s not that we don’t have a research protocol that is top of the range or that we don’t know what to do. We know what to do. But we also need more people and more funds so that we can do more fundamental research as well as research to show that PC AIDS works.

AS: What kind of results have you had with other epidemic diseases?

PC: When it comes to treating epidemic diseases other than AIDS in Africa we had quite a lot of success with PC remedies, for example with gonorrhea I remember well one case where a woman had a huge quantity of puss in her fallopian tubes and I reasoned out from the symptom picture that the most likely reason was gonorrhea, which was semi active, as there were also bladder symptoms. It was just the most likely option. Either we treated it homeopathically or she needed an operation, which is a risky procedure at best in Africa, as well as very expensive. The anesthetics alone might set them back more money than they and the family together could find and would deprive them of food for a period of time. So we gave PC gonorrhea and within, I think, four days there was a palpable reduction in that puss formation in the fallopian tube and within a week to 10 days there was nothing detectable. She had been sterile 10 years due to this. The after effects of gonorrhea in Africa are numerous, as it is very rarely treated properly with drugs. They commonly buy one pill at a time and if it works they stop buying them. So commonly, things are only partially treated at best. We came across may be a hundred cases which were likely to be the consequences of partially treated gonorrhea and PC gonorrhea was highly effective in such situations. Erections came back, fertility came back etc.

AS: How about Malaria, which a major killer in Africa?

PC: When it came to malaria, we found that PC malaria was highly effective in Africans and was the quickest way of restoring health in malaria, and this was repeated many times, maybe hundreds of times.

I’d like to mention here, that there is a difference between treating Africans and treating Europeans and white people. White people with aids frequently don’t respond so well to PC AIDS because they have a lot of other issues running at the same time, which are more important often than the AIDS, in that they depress the immune system far more than the virus. So treating Westerners is a whole new ball game when treating AIDS. It’s also because, just to be alive in Africa you have to have a well functioning immune system, otherwise you will not survive diseases in childhood. Commonly this is something like malaria, maybe ten times by the time you are five, not to mention lots of other diseases related to diarrhoea. So the people of Africa are very strong, have common homeopathic archetypes, and they function very well, as their energy system works very well dynamically. And if you give them the indicated constitutional first simillimum remedy, in non-epidemic disease cases, you get very easy responses with one dose of 30c. Whatever it was they came with almost always gets better. It’s a very satisfying situation in which to work.

It’s likewise with malaria and white people. White people have no resistance to malaria, so PC malaria on its own is not sufficient for white people with their first few exposures to malaria, because they just don’t have any innate resistance built in, whereas the Africans do. For people with malaria visiting Africa, we recommend they take with them a homeopathic first aid kit for travelers: China sulph, China, rehydration sachets, drips equipment if they can, and Artemisia and quinine. Then they will be sufficiently equipped. The next difficulty they have, will be to avoid the appalling medical treatment they will otherwise be given, which will be an attempt to shut down every symptom of malaria with every possible drug at their disposal, which means your immune system will be compromised and you won’t recover properly. Every sign of fever will be suppressed, every sign of anything will be suppressed, so it’s a bit of a nightmare scenario in the worst case. My colleague witnessed many children with malaria treated this way and often they simply died, because their immune systems couldn’t take it. I think it’s salutary to know that the inappropriate and ignorant use of every possible modern medicine on malaria, can kill and often does. It may be that the death rate from malaria in Africa is significantly worsened by the modern medical practice that is used.

I forgot to mention above that PC AIDS has been tried in hundreds of different locations and by hundreds of different people across Africa and it is very reliably working where it is applied. And there are many people who are alive today who would not be alive, if it were not for PC AIDS.

AS: Given the success of these remedies, why aren’t they used more widely?

PC: Basically there is a huge gap between alternative treatments being successful and then their being applied. It’s the same question as to why homeopathy is not more successful. I wrote an article about this in the latest edition of homeopathic Links and it’s a whole subject in itself. I recommend two video CDs on this subject that speak more eloquently and are more pictorial about this huge subject than anything I can say. These are “Side Effects” (Director- Kathleen Slattery-Moschkau) and “Money Talks”, (Director- Holly Mosher), subtitled Profits Before Patient Safety.

That’s not to say we’ve given up, we have not. We are still actively pursuing the use of PC remedies in Africa and anybody who wants to offer help in this area is most welcome. Don’t expect a salary, but do to expect fantastic rewards and remember that the research shows that altruism increases your life span. So if you were to get involved you would probably live longer than you will now!

AS: Can you talk about the use of PC remedies in the West?

PC: In the West, we have used them in both epidemic and chronic diseases and, as I’ve already pointed, out chronic diseases are really slow-moving epidemics based on viruses and the like. The results have sometimes been outstanding and beyond anything ever seen before. At the other extreme there are numerous reports of the remedy is not working. It’s easy to find very good reasons why PC remedies will not work. It’s common that they are misapplied and there is no blame involved in this, it’s just that the person is suffering from a problem that is not obvious and the disease is not the central point of the case.

One homeopath of long experience told me that within one year of using PC disease remedies, he had an 80% success in treating chronic diseases. This was based on 25 cases. There was a trial in Belgium which was published in homeopathic Links, where seven people were treated with PC CFS over a period of a year and every one of them aggravated on the very first day back to the time of the first day when they had CFS! We learnt from this the first basic thing about case management, that in seriously depleted cases with low energy and long chronic degenerative diseases you give one dose once and wait. Two of the people in this trial dropped out due to the aggravation, then the other five continued and improved greatly. This remedy has been tried in many places now and is very successful sometimes, but not always. I remember one case that seemed like they were using it as self-help, which we actively discourage, and they had other healers and a diagnosis that changed with each new healer. So if the diagnosis is not right and the remedy for a specific diagnosis, it’s obviously not going to work.

We have many outstanding results, for example like the Parkinson case, where the neurologist had never seen a recovery like it.

AS: What kind of feedback are you getting from people who used PC remedies?

PC: Many people have recovered from many trivial complaints like herpes and athlete’s foot, as well as problems like multiple sclerosis where we have many good results, and there are results across the board in chronic diseases. However this is all still in the very early stages and there is a tremendous amount of work to do, to show that the second Simillimum is a very effective tool in helping with treatment of chronic diseases. As you know, in many chronic diseases you need between two and five years of follow up to know for sure, but we’ve had brilliant results. And it’s a real fact of life, that most homeopaths don’t have the time to write up their cases. They simply have other priorities in their life and they already lead a busy one. So while the results are coming in and you can find them on websites, amongst the testimonials as well as in the published articles in journals like homeopathic Links, the results are still slow in coming. I get to hear results very often when I attend conferences, where people tell me verbally,”I tried your so-and-so remedy and it worked”. That’s all they tell me! If I continue the conversation and extract a few more symptoms I often get very convincing results documented, but otherwise I would not get it at all. That is my experience. Quite often results are given by very experienced homeopaths who tried one of the PC resonances themselves. It seems that nothing but trying it is really convincing and I think that’s true of homeopathy generally. The skeptics never really know if homeopathy works unless they try it. No amount of statistics and testimonials and case studies and official trials are as convincing as simply trying it for yourself. The websites: vital and do have short case studies of results.

Clearly, we don’t hear about all the non-results, although we request these. But as I said before, when I can investigate and have investigated situations where an obvious PC remedy has failed, it’s quite common to find a clear reason why, which has nothing to do with the PC remedy, but to do with other issues.

AS: The idea of outside factors affecting the case is nothing new.

PC: Yes, this is also true of normal homeopathy; the homeopath may fail to appreciate the true nature of the case for some time. As a homeopath, I remember failing very consistently over the years, with people who persevered with me, in spite of my inability to solve the problem they came with.

AS: In terms of what you hoped for, how do you feel about your results so far?

PC: My view of our results so far in epidemic diseases in Africa is intensely satisfying and beyond anything I originally ever dreamt of. We’re laying the foundations for what could be a completely new mode of health care in Africa, which we are actively investigating and exploring and developing. It’s a slow process, but we have the vision and the team is building it.

When it comes to chronic diseases like multiple sclerosis, old-age diseases, arthritis and many common problems, and in epidemic diseases in the West, like Lyme disease and herpes and vaccination effects and many other problems, the PC remedies are proving effective. I am well satisfied that they are proving sufficiently effective in combination with conventional first Simillimum homeopathy. They will radically increase the effectiveness of homeopathy in the treatment of chronic diseases.

AS: Have you found that PC1 or other PC remedies work prophylactically?

PC: Well this was a very interesting question and of course we already know this can happen in epidemic diseases as we have a lot of evidence about that, and Isaac Golden is the expert. Since I have pointed out that chronic diseases are based upon miasms which are based upon epidemic diseases which are based on viruses and bacteria etc. and the cutting-edge medical sciences are saying the same, it is perfectly reasonable to think that we can also treat chronic diseases prophylactically. Of course that wonderful remedy called Carcinosin has almost certainly worked prophylactically in thousands of cases of potential cancer already and this will be a wonderful area of research. I have published a case of virtually terminal cancer, cured by one dose of Carcinosin, with a seven-year follow up. The remedy PC Cancer, has been subject to a proving which shows it exactly targets cancer, and Carcinosin is also very well known and documented. It seems to me completely feasible to construct a study of say 100 well selected Carcinosin/cancer to-be cases over a period of say five years and compare that with a group of matched untreated cases and I can only imagine the result shall be rather remarkable.


AS: How about prophylaxis with the acoustic remedies?

PC: We also have a lot of evidence from the PC Herpes resonance, that it is highly effective in treating herpes, the moment the Tingle is felt. It quickly aborts the oncoming attack, just by listening to the download. We’ve had reports from many experienced homeopaths on this point. Now aborting an attack is not the same as prophylaxis but it is very close and I can only imagine that some people after hearing it, have not had an attack ever since. But I don’t remember seeing a report like this and I can only imagine that people who had this effect with the herpes resonance either dismissed it out of hand or took a long time to report it and these are the early days. With herpes, it’s interesting to note that even experienced homeopaths, who normally greatly favor pills over downloads, are very happy to listen to the herpes download and notice that it works!

AS: Have you done any research in the prevention of AIDS?

PC: Regarding AIDS, I’ve often thought of the idea of proving that the AIDS resonance will act prophylactically. For example, it would be fairly easy to offer PC AIDS to a school in a local area in Africa, where the children are becoming sexually active. And then we could compare their results with a matched school in another area. In spite of all the education that goes on in these schools, about AIDS and condoms, and their attempts to supply condoms, it is still a reality that the children often sleep with the master to pass their exams. Such activities spread aids at an early age. However I can imagine a lot of ethical objections to such a study, so it’s a question of finding a suitable situation and obtaining all the permissions and then the research would be possible.

An easier piece of research would be to use PC1, the AIDS resonance, to treat breast-feeding mothers, or even to treat them in the last month of pregnancy and throughout the breast-feeding. Currently breast-feeding infects about one third of the children and if PC AIDS was used this would probably reduce it a lot. That would be an easy piece of research, but once again it takes time and money and people to do it.

AS: I hope you can garner the resources to do this research. Another area you’ve become concerned with is bird flu. What approach are you taking to that potential problem?

PC: As I’ve pointed out on the website and in various videos on Youtube and similar video sites, I think that bird flu is the greatest immediate threat to the human race right now. It seems to me a seriously ignored and unquantifiable threat. It looks like this could happen within a year or so or less and it could be very serious or less serious. Even with less serious, we’re talking in terms of hundreds of millions of deaths. It will be the first major catastrophe of the third millennium. So I have suggested the PC (acoustic)resonance for bird flu which is a free download and is something everybody should put on their computers and tell their friends about. It would, in theory, be easy to prove that it cures the birds themselves. All we need is a bunch of infected birds in a secure location, but that’s not an easy thing to do either, unless you’ve got a lot of clout and a lot of money. And I am suggesting to people that they really do listen to it, to build up their resistance to bird flu. It looks to me a bit like malaria, where we don’t have a lot of built-in resistance, so anything we can do to build up resistance is worth trying. The PC resonance for bird flu has got a be a possibility. Of course if you like the more conventional approach, you start eating influenzinum. From the many studies, prophylaxis is supposed to be about 95% effective, in the first six months. There is a lot of evidence to back this up, unless you’re skeptical and scientifically narrow minded!
AS: Homeopaths are concerned with both effectiveness and safety. In terms of “first do no harm”, what can you tell us about the safety record of second simillimum remedies? What potency are they closest to, 30, 200 etc? If there was a severe aggravation and one wanted to antidote, how would this be done?

PC: This is obviously an important question, as every homeopath has the luxury of a system of medicine that virtually does no harm, unless they are particularly stupid. This compares with the United States health-care system, which is twice as expensive as any other health care system in the world and which is reckoned to be the number one cause of death in the United States each year. Research shows that more than 50% of the patients in the United States are given substandard care and this results in a massive numbers of deaths.

When it comes to PC resonance for epidemic diseases, I have a lot of personal experience with AIDS and I never saw an aggravation or a complication and we have had no reports of serious complications on the resonances in epidemic diseases.

When it comes to PC resonances used for chronic diseases, especially degenerative chronic diseases which are well advanced and which often have stages of rapid declines and plateau’s, and sometimes temporary remissions, it can be quite difficult to evaluate what is happening, when you give a PC resonance. In about 50% of the cases we know the PC resonance has a really beneficial effect when it’s combined with effective homeopathic individual remedies. The other 50% seem not to respond. But it is easy to imagine numerous reasons why this is so. And we have other reports that PC resonances are 80% effective. So in these early days we don’t have enough information.

There are some cases of course, which are very debilitated and very exhausted as is found in things like chronic fatigue syndrome and in these cases we absolutely do recommend one dose and wait. We found in chronic fatigue, in very longstanding cases that had been treated homeopathically, over a fairly long period of time, that the cases relapsed back to the very first day when they had chronic fatigue symptoms (for a example to the flu vaccination effect, or to the fall, or accidental injury.) Generally speaking these people then pick up after a week or so, sometimes less, and further doses given judiciously bring about significant improvement, which is highly beneficial to the patient. This is not always true, but we don’t have enough results to go on, to be sure.

AS: Do factors that sustain disease, confuse the issue of when the remedy is working and effective?

PC: There are many complications or complicating factors in chronic diseases, such as lifestyle. In the USA at the moment, there’s this thing called the “metabolic syndrome” which supposedly affects 25% of the population which is really a lifestyle disease of junk food, junk water, no exercise and massive watching of TV. It is easy to imagine a lot of such people having chronic fatigue syndrome. On top of this there is the serious effect of long-term vaccination programs and the overuse of antibiotics (which has lead to immature immune systems) and the effects of masses amounts of electromagnetic radiation. It’s worth remembering that core bodies are electromagnetic structures vitalized by an energy that has not yet been measured. So it’s easy to imagine, that in chronic fatigue syndrome and other degenerative diseases, there are many obstacles to cure and these are very hard to detect.

I imagine that to antidote vaccination effects would be pretty much the universal requirement and instigating sensible lifestyle another one. In such situations it would be foolish to give a PC resonance aimed at the disease without first addressing the lifestyle problems. Because the disease is an intelligent force which is trying its best to wake us up to the reality of being in a body and if everything we are doing is destroying the body, then telling it in such a direct way may not be the best procedure.

So as yet we don’t have enough information and concrete feedback from experienced homeopaths, to be certain of what to say in this area about this question.

AS: Getting back to potencies and antidoting of PC remedies…?

PC: In regard to your question about which potencies PC remedies are closest to, I can’t answer that, because I’ve tried to build into the resonances, the ability to self adjust to the problem.

Regarding antidoting in a severe aggravation, the best advice would be to wait. Personally I’m not aware that you can antidote even normal homeopathic remedies and the only policy I know of, is to treat the symptom picture that arises, or to go back to the original case and find the more exact Simillimum. The common idea that coffee antidotes homeopathic remedies is simply not true, since homeopathy is perfectly successful in countries which drink really strong coffee such as Ethiopia. In Ethiopia they take great pride in their coffee ceremonies and that stuff is really strong. It it certainly wired me up, as if I been supercharged, with just a few doses over a few days..

AS: A moment ago you mentioned the Bird Flu and presented your healing downloads (sound frequencies) as a solution. Using sound for healing has roots in chanting and drumming. In Bio- acoustics, as developed by Sharry Edwards, (U.S.), the patient’s voice is analyzed by computer and the frequency patterns, including missing frequencies, non- coherent ones etc, indicate specific elements, minerals, organic compounds and even pathogens. In the treatment phase, bio- acoustic therapists feed back to the patient, balancing frequencies of sound. They also use sound frequencies directly, to render bacteria and viruses vulnerable to the immune system.

I was once a patient of a bioacoustic therapist and the sound had powerful effects. Could you comment on how that method and yours may be similar or different?.

PC: From what you describe about the work of Sharri Edwards, it looks like a profound new system of healing is evolving. The questions I have around it would be this. What is the modus operandi by which it works? I like to differentiate between health mechanics and holistic healing to a basic principle and practice. With the Rife machines for example, there were plenty of opportunities to treat people, but there was no modus operandi, is far as I could see, in treating the totality of the person or the disease.

With the Edwards system above, I like the idea of missing frequencies, but this is still disease mechanics. It seems to me like you’re doing things to people without really knowing what you’re doing, as you have no guiding principle.

I knew a sacred architect in Egypt who had a specific sacred design for every defect of the body and once the defect was identified, he had a sacred shape to fix it. For example a defective heart valve. But basically he was a mechanic and he didn’t understand healing.

Now the idea behind the vital disturbance or vital sensation is that you are treating the deepest disturbance within the human being, according to a principle which we call like cures like or resonance, which is the underlying phenomena. It’s the same with treating diseases with PC resonances. Diseases are ancient and profound intelligences, which have real meaning on a human level. On an individual level, when we treat a disease as an entity residing in a human envelope, it has a profound effect, because it’s still treating according to resonance, which is the totality of the symptoms etc.

So my advice to the people developing the system of healing by Edwards would be, to look deeply into resonance, to see if they could figure a way of working from the basic principle of resonance and letting this determine the actual treatment they make. Otherwise they will just be acting to remove toxicities, which is fine and brilliant, but is not fundamental. So I am suggesting that they need to put some fundamental philosophic principles and practices behind what they do. I think that’s the message of homeopathy in particular and the great strength of homeopathy, that there is a fundamental principle involved which guides every move and every practice. If I were to simplify my argument, it’s like discovering potentized remedies, but having no clue how to use them!

As a practitioner of this therapy you might begin to build up all sorts of intuitive understanding of how to use it, but you don’t have a basic principle. This is similar I think to when homeopathy is based on essence prescribing and which is similar to Bach flower remedies, which is working on the emotional level. It does not address the deeper levels necessarily, it may, but there’s no guarantee. If the blockage is on the emotional level, which it often is, then that’s fine. But then it only restores the person to normal and by being normal is how they got sick! So I think that’s the lesson of every therapy that is not practiced deeply, according to some principles., It is superficial in its effect and while it may relieve suffering it doesn’t cure the patient.

And your experience of this therapy is typical. Since you’ve had good homeopathic treatments and you still found these other treatments effective and profound, it shows either that the homeopathy you’ve had has not been profound and or that the homeopaths were not able to perceive the depths of the human condition. However hard they tried, they were still missing vital parts of the healing process and perhaps, the obstacles to cure.
AS: Do you see limits to just treating the vital disturbance?

PC: If there’s been, for example, the systematic use of antibiotics in childhood for some typical childhood disease which has been repeatedly suppressed, this leads to an under functioning for life. I’m not convinced that the vital disturbance treatment will in fact address this problem. I think the vital disturbance method will make the best of what is now available but it will not open up potential, where this has been specifically shut down by a medical procedure.

And it may well be that something targeted on that medical procedure, be it a special tone to amplify that which is missing or at low level, or a PC resonance aimed at their old disease toxicity, will restore full functioning what was shut down. I have seen this happen. It’s not that I think homeopathy can’t do this, but unless we take a broader view of how mind/ body ego works and how it can be shut down and limited, we are not going to fully develop human potential, just by using core methods of homeopathy,. We had to consider the damage to the development of the organism that happened on multiple levels. We know for example, that in the United States they now have this “metabolic syndrome” that affects perhaps a quarter of the population. It’s a lifestyle disease and such crazy lifestyle dramatically affects health

I also know that lots of homeopaths do this approach by drainage and herbal tonics and organ tonics and various devices for under functioning, but I’m not sure this is truly effective, because again, it is not based on resonance. I think it’s likely that it has a temporary effect since it leaves the vital pattern of dysfunction in place. But it’s a lot better than not dealing with the problem at all, which is what could happen when using the vital disturbance or essence prescribing. What I like about the vital sensation or vital disturbance methods and the PC methods together is that this allows what I think is a classical approach to everything. Whatever the obstacle to cure, there is a classical way of dealing with that. It works on a deeper level, and is not just a tonic.

Having said that I really like new technology and I think the fact that a bio-acoustic diagnosis can show up deficiencies, indicates yet another way by which we could monitor homeopathic effectiveness. And this is a whole new area where some fantastically interesting research could be carried out. It would be very interesting to see how the methods I’ve described above, what I call the classical methods using the vital disturbance and PC resonances, work and develop the bio-acoustic pattern of the person. I would really encourage that area of research.

In particular this could be a very interesting addition to working with aids in Africa. It’s common in Africa that the person is suffering from multiple diseases simultaneously and this really affects the outcome of the treatment. A person can literally drop dead from one day to the next and you don’t know why. So having a diagnostic system that could highlight pathological diseases of an epidemic type would be highly beneficial and I will pass this information on to my research colleagues
AS: In spite of all the precedent for healing with sound, the idea of listening to a jazz ensemble as bird flu approaches, may be too large a leap for many people (even homeopaths.). Could you build us some conceptual bridges?

PC: As far as I can see the healing downloads approach (acoustic remedies) is completely unique and new and there is nothing else like it although there are few things, like the ones above you could confuse it with.

The essence of healing downloads, which is the same as vital remedies, is that you have an exact, focused resonance, applied to a specific disease, problem or trauma.

You could say that listening to music is like an immune booster. Obviously lots of people love listening to music and they feel better from it, but as a rule while it may help them stay well and happy and healthy, it won’t be exactly focused on any particular problem. It’s a general immune booster like Echinacea or running or a good dance or whatever you love doing that’s good for you. This is something very general and not at all similar to doing something that is very specifically focusing on the pathology.

So I’m trying to make sure we don’t beat around the bush here by pretending this is something similar to that which is already known. As far as I can see it is not.

From a homeopathic point of view, to put pills under the tongue which transfer information into the body, is sort of fixed within the model of biochemistry, but I don’t really believe that. The only reason we have a pill is because you can physically hold it and put in your mouth. One atom would be just as good, but we can’t do that practically. The homeopathic pill has nothing to do with chemistry, it’s all to do with information carried electromagnetically into the body. Nothing can convince me that the normal homeopathic remedy has anything to do with pharmacology. So I don’t see a lot of difference between putting the information into the body through the nerves of the mouth which is orally, and putting the information into the ear on a carrier just like a pill, but obviously into the ear it has to be a sound, as that’s the way the ear works as against the taste buds. So I don’t see a lot of difference between orally and aurally.

Because PC resonances are made from information related to the totality of the disease or dysfunction, they have real advantages in that the information is already separated from any substance and can be implanted in a whole range of ways. The homeopathic method of preparation by potentization doesn’t have a method of transferring information into the body except via pills and drops and smell, and while that is very acceptable and conventional and appealing to the average person who loves pills in the mouth, it is not very flexible and doesn’t allow other methods of delivery.

I think anybody would agree that treatment with acupuncture needles can have a very similar effect to treatment with a homeopathic pill. Likewise reflexology and emotional freedom techniques which use tapping of the skin in specific locations, and lots of other healing systems, just do not use pills.

I think it’s a slightly crazy idea analogue, but if you were to bang the remedy bottle on a tuning fork the tuning fork might then possibly contain the sound that heals, engrafted upon its natural tone. There are plenty of experiments for example that show there is no non-living matter and I especially like the one of the random robot who is attracted to some chicks who think he’s their mother! If you were to try and tell me that banging a remedy on the tuning fork would have no effect whatsoever, I would say you are definitely wrong. I would say that after that process, there would be some healing effect from listening to the tuning fork if the remedy which was banged was appropriate to the listener, i.e. resonant to their problem and carried on the natural frequency of the tuning fork. It might not be a very efficient transfer of information, but you couldn’t say it was zero and since we’re talking about resonance here, a faint resonance might be just as effective as strong one.

In fact, it is very easy to prove the effectiveness to yourself if you have a minor complaint, like herpes, which is an epidemic disease and logically quite difficult to cure using the first Simillimum, because you’re not addressing it directly by its totality. If you were to take the pills for the herpes resonance you would see that they are probably effective. And if you were to try the download of the herpes and listen you would find the same. I know it’s a huge shift in the mind especially for a mineral type of person, because it’s not hard material facts and substance, but the fact is, there is nothing more convincing than trying it for yourself. The healing downloads allow you a free trial on anything of your choice and I do not believe there is any better proof than that.

AS: What do you think will change people’s opinions about homeopathy and your work in particular?

PC: I think one day there might be double-blind controlled trials and lots of statistics, but that sort of thing is not very convincing, as most people have very strong prejudices against new things. It’s fairly obvious that the medical profession is hugely biased against homeopathy for various reasons and no amount of science is going to change that until it’s indisputable. By that I mean, there would be absolutely concrete ways of measuring the effects of homeopathic remedies. But what will change opinions, is to try it. All that science is doing is breaking down resistances.

Jacques Benveniste died of a broken heart when he failed to convince the world about homeopathic potency, but since then, underneath the surface, science is still moving in that direction and eventually it will erode the prejudice against homeopathy.

So one of the points I’m making is that resistance to healing downloads(acoustic) is a matter of prejudice. I have a funny story about this. I had a colleague in Africa who was very happy with PC1 for AIDS and I equipped him with some MP3 players so he could try out my (acoustic) downloads of AIDS and malaria. But he would not do it, because it was a step too far. So I had to fly out to this remote part of Africa and stand over him while he tried it. There was no risk involved, because, if it did not work he could quickly switch to something that did, like the pills. Anyway, he tried it for a person with AIDS and she recovered exactly as if she had been taking the pills. In about 17 days she was fully restored to health. And likewise a man with malaria, in the beginning of an acute stage, listened to the malaria download for about 30 minutes one evening, after which he felt better and was completely well next morning, which just doesn’t happen with the conventional medical pills. It seemed to me to nip it in the bud.

Healing Downloads, in my way of thinking, has so many advantages. The delivery is so easy, as there is no pharmacy and e-mail is instant. In an epidemic of the type we are expecting with bird flu, I think it might prove to be the only realistic option for millions of people. After all, you could just broadcast it on the BBC!

Here is post script to your question about homeopaths, who you infer are open-minded. While it’s true to a limited extent that there has to be some sort of spiritual awareness or some sort of awareness to become a homeopath, I don’t think homeopathy is particularly unconventional and in my observation there are a lot of normal conventional people practicing homeopathy. You could even say that some of them are very conventional indeed, and nothing wrong with that. I imagine that in every profession there are those who are fixed to the past, those who modernize, those at the cutting edge, and those beyond the fringe, like me. Within the medical fraternity, those who practice homeopathy in some countries have a very strong urge to be seen as conventional and they do everything to tow the line and appear to be extremely conservative. I have noticed even in England, that some homeopathic organizations will not even print reviews of my books! And certainly not an article from me! Yet their members are very happy to attend seminars when I give them. It seems that the organizations too often become very conservative and do not reflect what is going on amongst the membership.

AS: In your article “Trauma” in this issue, you state that trauma is behind much of the suffering in the world. Do you see your PC Trauma remedies as a means of combating this eternal human condition?

PC: Well I think trauma is a hidden aspect within homeopathy and it explains a lot of what is behind the rubrics in the repertory and what’s in the materia medica. I think that trauma is there, right in the thick of all the information. By identifying and clarifying it, we will make homeopathy a lot more understandable.

Obviously if we can treat trauma directly, it opens up a new way of treating people and a way of focusing on these issues. In my experience, it’s sometimes a great opening to treat trauma and then behind that, the vital dysfunction becomes clear. And I’m sure vice versa also occurs.

What I am questioning in myself, is why we treat shock for example, by differentiating it according to the response. It seems to me that there is an underlying phenomena and by treating that, we can resolve all the different responses. At the same time that seems a bit allopathic, if not very allopathic, but the advantage in a situation like Rwanda, is that you could treat the whole country en masse and the trauma would resolve en masse. That’s something that is very difficult to do if you individualize the treatment in a country without homeopaths and in a language that a visiting homeopath will not know, not to mention having millions of patients. The treatment of mass trauma is an interesting new field of human endeavor, and at the moment there are many obstacles to implementation, but these may dissolve in time.

Certainly the trauma remedies are very effective and allow a much easier way of treating trauma when the trauma is known. For example the use of PC Evil in the case of paranoid schizophrenia resulting from the Nazi occupation, is both easy to apply and effective in action.

AS: There’s certainly resistance to your PC remedies and downloads. But you also have ardent supporters. Can you tell us about some of the people, groups, NGO’s or government’s agencies that share your passion?

PC: Well there is a team of us at the hub, without there being any official organization, except we now have a foundation called the Amma Resonance Healing Foundation, which holds the copyright of the resonances appropriate to Africa. We have had a lot of support from our close colleagues, including ones in India and Japan and California and the USA generally and in Holland especially and in the Czech Republic and many other places, especially in Africa. Otherwise, to be honest, I’m not sure who our ardent supporters are, as I have no way of knowing who buys our remedies and resonances as pills and drops. Obviously we do know some people who give us feedback, but likewise, lots of people use them without ever telling us, which is fine, but it means we don’t know who they are.

It seems to me that we’ve met resistance at every step and that people are much happier with what they already know, than taking on something new. This is natural. I met even greater resistance to the Downloads, as this was even more unfamiliar territory. And obviously the secrecy around the manufacturing is detrimental to their acceptance. Having said all that, there are quite a lot of people who are open-minded enough to try them and some of them have had considerable success.

These are early days and considering the amount of new ideas and fresh concepts, I think were making quite good progress in a slow and steady fashion. It would be good if it was adopted a bit more, as then we would have more money with which to do more things. In the beginning, it was completely a labor of love, and I loved it, and now it’s still a question of quiet persistence, without enough resources. But that may be my psychology limiting what I can do! I am obviously a man on a mission and in my estimation we’ve only made the beginning steps and there is a lot more to be accomplished. Every year we make these steps forward and I can’t see this is going to stop, as new possibilities keep opening up.

AS: I want to thank you for all you’ve shared with us. You’ve probably evoked as many questions as you’ve provided answers, and that’s a good sign. Your remedies remain a mystery, but then so is homeopathy. Arthur Clarke said that any technology that is sufficiently advanced, is indistinguishable from magic. So perhaps that’s where we are. I hope everyone will experiment with your remedies and see for themselves, what kind of magic is there.
