Book Description

Homeopathy for Measles is an easy-to-use practical guide for newcomers to homeopathy for self-prescribing safe, non-toxic homeopathic remedies for the common symptoms of the measles virus in an otherwise healthy child. It does not discourage essential treatment for conditions for which medical supervision should be sought - parents and guardians are encouraged to make their own well-informed decisions regarding vaccinations. Homeopathy treats the person not the disease and homeopathic remedies have no side-effects and cannot weaken your child's immune system.

     Homeopathy for Measles is written in an easy to follow style and recommends ten of the most effective homeopathic remedies for the symptoms of measles in the 30c potency. Homeopathic remedy descriptions are short and self-explanatory. Readers may find the Self-Help chapter especially useful, particularly the guidelines on treating fever. This chapter also explains how to recognize and deal with any complications. Care and safety of the child are paramount and professional medical help, which may include classical homeopaths, is advised should problems arise.

     A choice of international specialist suppliers of homeopathic remedies is included to help locate remedies in various countries. Another important addition is a simple three-step guide to observing and classifying reactions after giving remedies, with follow-up actions if necessary. These suggestions concur with the principles of classical homeopathy to ensure optimal success in prescribing.

     Homeopathy for Measles is interspersed with color photographs and pertinent quotations. For instance, does homeopathy work? Paolo Bellavite et al explains: "We now have the results of studies that have used homeopathic remedies under well-known experimental conditions, as well as conventionally produced experimental evidence indirectly explaining homeopathic phenomena. The current scientific literature contains a substantial body of evidence and examples that may provide new insights improving our understanding of the principle of similarity and the action of small (or highly diluted) doses of medicines, particularly on the immune system and host defenses (39-45). These studies document and may clarify some of the specific aspects of the biochemical regulatory mechanisms possibly underlying the observed paradoxical phenomena. The 'simile' - brought back to its biological meaning of the inverted, or paradoxical, effects of the same or similar compounds - can operate under a number of experimental and reproducible conditions."

     "Anyone who adopts an unprejudiced position will discover that immunology and the whole of modern biology in general can offer a considerable contribution to the understanding of homeopathy in a framework that is not very different from the conventional context. In other words, although it is true that some of the most reductionist molecular lines of modern science are ultimately incompatible with the systemic nature of homeopathic thought, it is equally true that many others are perfectly compatible." (Paolo Bellavite, Anita Conforti, Valeria Piasere, and Riccardo Ortolani, "Immunology and Homeopathy. 1. Historical Background," Evidence-Based Complementary and Alternative Medicine, vol. 2, no. 4, pp. 441-452, 2005. doi:10.1093/ecam/neh141 - distributed under the Creative Commons Attribution License ).

     Homeopathy for Measles also contains additional informative chapters like Brief History and Explanation of Homeopathy, Some Measles Cases, Some Useful Contacts, and Suggested Reading.

1.0 out of 5 stars Dangerous delusions 8 April 2013
There is presently an outbreak of measles in South Wales. The only preventative is vaccination and this outbreak was caused by a drop in vaccination. Treatment of the infection depends on the symptoms presented. There is no evidence, despite what the author says, that water drops or lactose tablets have any effect whatsoever. If any parent is persuaded by this book to not vaccinate their children then sooner or later children will die, just to make some money for this deluded author.

1.0 out of 5 stars Excellent book for today's culture 8 Mar. 2013
By Binky Boy - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition
Thanks to this book I put aside years of grueling study of physics, chemistry and biology. Now I no longer have to think when I treat my children for life-threatening diseases and illnesses. I just grab a little bit of some random weed, soak it in alcohol for a day, then make up a massive batch of the best treatment that willful ignorance can make. I even use Hahnemann's original technique of hitting the mixin' container on a leather bound bible for the extra holy vibrations that will make my 30C water the strongest water around. It don't remember the poop or nuthin'!

1.0 out of 5 stars Dangerous, ignorant, rubbish 8 Mar. 2013
By Lifelong Book Lover - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition
I just love it when people with an inadequate understanding of science write books that urge people to engage in one of the most dangerous and self-destructive behaviors possible. I hope the day comes when anti-vaccine parents are charged with manslaughter when their kids die from not being vaccinated. How many DEAD KIDS do we need until those in the religion of anti-vaccine get it.

In the 1940s, there were about 9,000 child deaths a YEAR from pertussis. Now we have a vaccine... but parents have started refusing. That worries me. A lot. Their children have NO voice in this.

At present, the American population is roughly DOUBLE what it was in the 1940s. And we now have 10-20 deaths a year from pertussis. If the anti-vaccine half wits get their way, we'll lose our herd immunity and that can be VERY bad.

This is a dangerous book by a person who does not believe in REAL science and is hurting people. I wish I could give it half a star.

1.0 out of 5 stars Such a dangerous disease 8 Mar. 2013
By Lacuna - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition
There is much to commend in this book. It is short at 86 pages, bang up-to-date, and downloadable, as befits the modern writer.

I would have awarded it 5 stars except for its insistence that the patient not be immunised against measles to begin with. In my experience, homeopathic remedies are most effective when the subject is free of illness. Given the highly contagious nature of measles, vaccination is essential, particularly when you consider the life-threatening dangers that the disease presents when left untreated.

That quibble apart, I must confess a sneaking admiration for an honours arts graduate with such a profound knowledge of epidemiology. I'm put in mind of others such as Lord Monckton who are so authoritative on subjects outside their field of practice.

1.0 out of 5 stars Measles is dangerous, homeopathy is worthless... 15 Mar. 2013
By Chris Haynes - Published on
Homeopathy is fashionable nonsense foisted upon the gullible. It started as just some magical thinking thought up in Germany by Hahnemann a bit over two hundred years ago. Anyone who remembered their high school chemistry would know that diluting something past Avogadro's Number is not stronger, it is not anything. It is literally nothing.

The best thing is to prevent measles with a vaccine.

Edit to add: There is large outbreak of measles in Wales. And this article "Neal's Yard promotes homeopathy for measles. This could kill real children" in the Telegraph [...], explains why this fashionable nonsense is dangerous.

Some better reads:

1.0 out of 5 stars Promoting sugar pills for a dangerous disease? 8 Mar. 2013
By Mike H - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition
So a book that suggests sugar pills can be helpful for a serious viral infection? That's really really really really not good.

Do yourself a favour - go and see your GP instead. Leave the mumbo-jumbo of homeopathy well alone. You never know - following this book could kill a child, and it'll almost certainly harm at least one.
