Dear Dr Miguel Angel Sánchez Chillón,
I have read very carefully your proposal and am now sending you a few comments and information concerning your scheme: “We created a scientific council that has decided to dissolve all these departments, more than thirty of them, ranging from homeopaths and acupuncturists to anthroposophical medicine and those equivalent to any recognized medical specialty”.
It is well known that there are senseless and strange ideas in alternative and complementary medicine but these must not be confused with the serious and effective Homeopathy as was promulgated by Dr. Samuel Hahnemann.
Classical Homeopathy is a therapeutic modality, a medicine in fact, which is based on the principle that the possibility of cure for a particular disease
is can often be achieved through the expert application of specially-prepared pharmaceutical substances which, when administered to a healthy person, have been proven to produce similar symptoms to those of the disease in question. These proven substances are then effectively prescribed to sick persons
Classical Homeopathy does not claim to cure everything but, significantly, it is very successful in the beginning stages of chronic conditions where conventional medicine can do very little. Homeopathy intervenes where conventional medicine can hardly do anything, especially at the beginning of chronic disease, where the disturbance has mainly been, and is still, of a functional character. When there is intervention with the correct homeopathic remedy, this can often stop further development of the disease.
A significant number of credible and positive experimental studies on homeopathy at molecular, cellular and clinical levels which have been published in peer review journals are presented below for the serious researcher. The research papers are categorised into three groups which you may view separately using the hyperlinks (in brackets): Human Studies, Animal Studies and In Vitro Studies.
These papers have been rigorously researched and produced by medical scientists, and have been approved and published in internationally-recognised, highly-respected Journals or other approved scientific sources of research material. http://www.vithoulkas.com/research/positive-articles
I think it will also be expedient for you to see the recent Swiss Report about homeopathy:
including these very useful links from the World Health Organisation (WHO) about Homeopathy:
For centuries, homeopathy has been successfully used by the royal families of Europe and many thousands of educated, intelligent persons. Even the late esteemed Pope John Paul II was a homeopathic patient of Francesco Eugenio Negro, and Pope John Paul II beatified Mother Teresa, who had a special interest in homeopathic medicine because of its effectiveness and low cost.
I would respectfully draw your attention to the fact that Prof. George Vithoulkas was awarded with the Right Livelihood Award (Alternative Nobel Prize) in 1996, "for his outstanding contribution to the revival of homeopathic knowledge and the training of homeopaths to the highest standards.”
Last but not least, in the following link you will find a selection of positive references, decisions and directives from the World Health Organisation (WHO), the European Parliament, the Council of Europe and Others from 1975 to 2017.
It is our mutual moral duty to support and defend the human rights of the people, and the instinctive desires of patients, to choose the therapeutic modality they feel is better for themselves. This is an important issue of democracy: respect for the patient, and improvement of quality of life for humanity.
I am at your disposal to send you additional details if you need further clarification.
