Original Air Date: January 28, 2013
Presenter: Gabrielle Traub
Psychosis induced by the use of drugs such as amphetamine, methamphetamine and “bath salts” leads to dramatic symptoms, frequent institutional readmissions, and poses diagnostic challenges. Addictions, bipolar disorder and psychosis have poor prognoses and are difficult to treat with conventional therapies. Through her work at an in-patient treatment facility for psychiatric conditions, Gabrielle has witnessed the dramatic benefits of homeopathy in severely affected patients. This session demonstrates the benefits of homeopathy in this setting via cases.
Nanoparticles in Cancer Treatment: Parallels with the Banerji Homeopathic Remedy Protocols
Original Air Date: February 11, 2013
Presenter: Iris Bell
Recent research has demonstrated that homeopathic remedies contain nanoparticles of their source material as well as measurable amounts of silica and silica precursors from the glass walls of the containers in which they are succussed. These data have profound implications for what remedies are and how they work. Some homeopaths in India, including the Banerjis, report good success treating people with various cancers. This presentation explores the overlaps between the homeopathic remedies and potencies used in the Banerji protocols and the research literature on nanoparticles as a strategy for treating certain cancers.

This talk provides tools to aid the homeopath dealing with this expanding health crisis.

The American Medical College of Homeopathy (AMCH) is working to build a homeopathic medical school, the first in the 21st century in the USA. The AMCH vision is for a four-year, full-time medical school in Phoenix, Arizona. Graduates of this new program will be licensed to practice homeopathic medicine through the Arizona Homeopathic Licensing Board and will practice as homeopathic doctors. This will be the most comprehensive homeopathic educational program in North America.
