Epidemics: Ebola, SARS, Influenza

with Paul Herscu, ND, MPH

Two 2-hour sessions


Long before hygiene began to alter the impact of epidemics in the early western world, homeopathy was employed with great success in several epidemics, including cholera.

Dr. Herscu began writing about epidemics in the 1990s. With regard to influenza, as well as other areas of research, Dr. Herscu and colleagues have been dedicated to pursuing excellence in research to bridge modern scientific and clinical disciplines, and precipitate real-world applications that can be implemented on a broad scale.

Currently, an epidemic of Ebolavirus Disease (EVD) is ongoing in a number of West African countries. It has caused significant mortality, with a reported case fatality rate of approximately 70%. As of October 25, 2014, the World Health Organization (WHO) reported a total of 10,141 suspected cases and 4,922 deaths, though the WHO believes this number substantially understates the magnitude of the outbreak, with true figures numbering two to three times as many cases as reported. The assistant director-general of the WHO warned in mid-October that there could be as many as 10,000 new EVD cases per week by December 2014.

Since the late 1990s, Dr. Herscu has spoken about Ebolavirus in comparison to influenza in its various forms, as well as other epidemics. In this mini-course, he will share his findings and insights on the history and future role of homeopathy and complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) in epidemics.

Dr. Herscu's research on epidemics may be found on his website: This site serves both as repository for the resources and tools he has developed, as well as a source of current news updates uniquely reflecting his ideas and strategies during this EVD epidemic. Within this site there are hundreds of pages of work on epidemics, spanning from 1991 to the present, covering aspects from biology to prevention, to treatment for individuals, to public health in a pandemic situation.

In his article 'Ebolavirus Outbreak #3' of October 16, 2014, Dr. Herscu asserts that there will not be an epidemic of Ebolavirus Disease in the USA, North America or Europe, nor will there be a greatly widening epidemic within Africa itself. In this upcoming mini-course, he will share the context for this assertion, and emphasize that the critical issue is to understand the basic principles surrounding epidemics, so that as each one appears, we do not lose our focus, and can actually predict fairly well how the disease will progress which then informs an appropriate response.

Topics to be discussed include:

  • History of epidemics, pandemics and homeopathy
  • Finding the genus epidemics
  • Potential current day epidemics ~ influenza, swine flu, avian flu, cholera, SARS, anthrax, HIV
  • Primary prevention and public health
  • Vaccines and prophylaxis
  • Specifics of the Ebolavirus - why is it so deadly, how is it communicated?
  • Factors causing the spread of Ebola Virus Disease to reach epidemic proportions
  • The role of poverty in the spread of Ebola and other communicable diseases
  • The status of antiviral and other drugs being tested for Ebola and other communicable diseases
  • The role of naturopathic, homeopathic and alternative medicine in the treatment of Ebola and other communicable diseases

WholeHealthNow is pleased to offer this mini-series with Dr. Herscu.

About Dr. Herscu

In this mini-course, I will share my general thoughts and understanding of Ebolavirus, and how they relate to practitioners of naturopathic medicine, complementary and alternative medicine (CAM), homeopathy and other integrative medicine approaches. Practitioners have remained mostly silent, yet many search for a framework to assist in humanitarian aid at this time. I would like to clarify information about epidemics in general, and then move to specific thoughts about the Ebola 2014 Outbreak.

Dr. Herscu is known for developing the Cycles & Segments approach to understanding and practicing homeopathy, and is co-founder, with his wife Dr. Amy Rothenberg, of the New England School of Homeopathy. Dr. Herscu is also the author of several well known books on homeopathy.

Adolph Lippe, in 50 years of busy practice, never lost one typhoid, cholera or malaria patient. Constantine Hering treated hundreds of cases of pneumonia with 100% success. During the 1813 typhoid epidemic ravaging Europe, Hahnemann proved the superiority of the homeopathic method.

Praise for Dr. Herscu

Paul Herscu is one of the guiding lights of contemporary homeopathy. He is a gifted prescriber and teacher who has forged a brilliant new system for the consistent and effective application of our healing art.

Dr. Herscu has built his system upon the foundations of our homeopathic heritage, creating a method that is dynamic and relevant for our times. I highly recommend his seminars for anyone seeking to increase their success in practice.
— Richard Mann, ND
Former Chair of Homeopathy, Bastyr University
Studying with Paul is a shortcut to excellence. He has a pragmatic style based on a rock solid philosophy that quickly allowed me to become an extremely competent Homeopath. His teaching has enabled me to make “sense” out of homeopathy and thereby be able to rationally determine if a particular theory is sound or not. That ability has clearly translated into vastly improved results in the care of my patients.
— Todd Hoover, MD
Former President, American Institute of Homeopathy
Dr. Herscu's teaching is thorough, clear, concise, entertaining, and most importantly, practical. … Achieving a focus on the case, possessing a good working knowledge of materia medica, competently assessing the results of a homeopathic prescription – these are the basics of good homeopathic practice, and they are covered admirably. Students will unfailingly appreciate Dr. Herscu's exceptional skill as a homeopath and teacher, and their practice will benefit enormously.
— George Guess, MD, DHt.
