I don't generally recommend you look to the government for health advice. But there might be one time that a population should believe its government. That's when the government says that an alternative form of treatment is effective.

The Swiss government has come forward and stated unequivocally that homeopathy is not only effective at treating disease, but cost effective as well. Additionally, homeopathic patients were significantly more pleased with their providers than conventional care patients (53% to 43%).

The Swiss government noted that studies not finding favorably for homeopathy often had design flaws. The investigators often ignored the principles of the practice. That set up a false negative report.

The government and Swiss people were so pleased with the results of homeopathy, they held a nationwide referendum on complementary and alternative (CAM) therapies. (Imagine that ever happening in America where doctors lose their licenses for using these therapies.)

Two-thirds of the population favored the integration of CAM into the Swiss health system. So, the Swiss Minister of Health approved reimbursement by the government's health program for five leading natural therapies. These will remain in the system until at least 2018. These include anthroposophic medicine, homeopathy, neural therapy, phytotherapy/herbal medicine, and traditional Chinese medicine.

I've often said that if our government would do something like this (which they won't), we could cut disease maintenance costs in this country by 60% within months. Of course, the people would have to participate in getting their bodies more nourished and less toxic.

I practice neural therapy, a phenomenal means to cure pain. I've trained in acupuncture, herbal medicine, and homeopathy. I'm quite weak in the latter. But, I actively refer when I think a patient needs it.

Please don't let your doctor tell you that homeopathy is bunk. In Alaska, I had to endure the late John Renner, MD. He's the famous self-proclaimed "quackbuster." He told a large professional audience in Anchorage, in a debate with me, that homeopathy is a quack treatment. He lost the debate with me, and the Swiss government didn't take his information to heart.

If and when our corrupt health rulers ever proclaim an alternative practice to be effective, that will be the time to believe them.

Yours for better health and medical freedom,
