How homeopathy could have helped cholera sufferers in Pakistan

The death toll resulting from the floods in Pakistan in 2010 reached over 1,600 and affected at least 20 million inhabitants. The national economy suffered severe losses since many standing crops and food storage facilities were destroyed. 

Shortly afterwards, the UN confirmed the first cholera cases, and subsequently the UN Office of Humanitarian Affairs is was assessing the risk of 'a second wave of deaths induced by the floods in the shape of waterborne diseases.’

It is reported that more than 36,000 people suffered from ‘acute watery diarrhoea’. A spokesman for the UN said:

'We're not suggesting that everyone who has acute watery diarrhea has cholera but cholera is certainly a concern and that's why we're stepping up our efforts to treat cholera.'

Historically, homeopathy’s success in treating cholera has been well-documented. For example, in 1854, during the outbreak of the disease in London, mortality rates for treating the epidemic with conventional treatment were 59.2% whereas under homeopathic care this figure dropped to just 9%.

At the same time, a well respected practitioner in Cincinnati, Joseph Pulte, was able to celebrate the fact that he did not lose a single patient to the cholera epidemic when it struck the city in 1849. 

Perhaps the UN office of Humanitarian Affairs should have considered the use of homeopathic treatment to help sufferers of this disastrous and often fatal disease in the flood-affected areas of Pakistan.

It is quite remarkable how the Conventional Medical Establishment can completely ignore what  Homeopathy can offer - even when it is known that it is better able to deal with the consequences of such natural disasters. - 14 Aug 2010
