A New Year’s Open Letter to Edzart Ernst

Dear Dr. Ernst,

 

I am posting this response to your December 24 blog post (addressed to me) here on my blog as I have doubts as to whether or not you will publish my response on your own blog…

 

We here at Homeopathic Associates and The Homeopathic College would like to thank you for your open ‘Christmas card’ and your wishes for a Happy New Year, as well as for the publicity it provided us. We have been followers of your opinions for many years now and are delighted at the opportunity to engage in a dialogue.

Is Homeopathy an Effective Cancer Treatment?

By Manfred Mueller MA DHM RSHom(NA) CCH | The American Homeopath Volume 18, 2012

“Homeopathic drugs have proven biological action in cancer; in vitro and in vivo; in animals and humans; in the lower, as well as in the higher potencies. Cancer patients are faced with a life-and-death decision when choosing their treatment. Since most conventional treatments continue to be associated with severe adverse and some- times fatal effects, while homeopathy has been found to be free from such effects, it would seem plausible and worthwhile, even urgent, to step up the research on, and even the provision of, homeopathic treatment of cancer and other diseases.”

For the present paper we have reviewed articles on homeopathic cancer treatment published during the last five years in peer-reviewed scientific journals. Homeopathic cancer treatment has great promise, given the exceptional safety of the treatment and the relatively frequent observation of beneficial clinical effects.2 However, in our last review we had noted a remarkable confusion among researchers on key concepts in homeopathy and we attributed this to editorial control. We also commented on the fact that virtually all studies of homeopathic cancer treatment are in reality investigating the effects of high potency drugs, not the efficacy of homeopathic treatment. This should be kept in mind when reading the present review. Read more

Thyroid Cancer

I was 28 years old and had a 4-6 a day cigarette habit. I began to feel a “lump” in my throat that felt as if something were lodged in there, and it was getting bigger. One day, I palpated my thyroid area and felt it- a stony hard nodule about the size of a pea with irregular borders. Testing revealed CANCER of the thyroid.

Over the past few years, I have been witness to cancer treatments in SEVEN different folks. Of course, the question I still ask myself is “why the HELL didn’t you quit smoking sooner, IDIOT??” Three of those were family members and the other four were neighbors and/or friends.

The Evidence: Scientific Studies on Homeopathic Cancer Treatment

Mr. Mueller published this article in The American Homeopath, Vol 13, 2007

Introduction

Homeopaths have described observations that tumors recede from the use of homeopathic treatment and have, from time to time, documented long-term recoveries from cancer in response to homeopathic treatment.1-23 Some practitioners have reported observations like this in as many as several hundred patients.24 Unfortunately, until about two decades ago, there were very few sound scientific studies corroborating these clinical observations. Citing this paucity of high-quality scientific evidence, regulatory agencies have been reluctant to endorse homeopathic treatment as an alternative or an adjunct treatment in cancer. However, the situation may be changing. Homeopathic treatment of cancer is now supported by state-of-the-art laboratory studies.”

Interview of Professor Anisur Rahman Khuda-Bukhsh

By Manfred Mueller, MA, DHM, RSHom(NA), CCH

A few years ago, I was asked to be a consultant on the Research Review Committee and the Editorial Committee for an  NIH  educational  grant  on  teaching  complementary  and  alternative  medicine  at  the  Program  on  Integrative Medicine at the University of North Carolina School of Medicine, at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, NC. While working with this group, consisting mostly of medical faculty and staff, I noticed that academic texts on complementary and alternative medicine are written almost exclusively by academicians within conventional medicine — by  authors lacking practical or personal experience with the field they write about. Furthermore,  in the research  articles  I  reviewed  for  the  project,  I  repeatedly  came  across  profound  misrepresentations  of  the  basic homeopathic tenets by established scientists who are writing about homeopathy.

I was pleasantly surprised to read, in 2003, an article on homeopathy by Prof. Anisur Rahman Khuda-Bukhsh in the Journal of Molecular  Chemistry  entitled,  “Towards  understanding  molecular  mechanisms  of homeopathy.”  I was impressed  that he actually explained the laboratory technique of potentization in this article, unlike some of his western colleagues who seemed to work  hard  to obscure  the difference  between  simple  dilutions  and potentization.  Here  was  a scientist  who  had thoroughly understood the theoretical principles of homeopathy. He was not only clear about the key questions, but also had the ability to communicate his understanding with clarity and the necessary detail.
