Turning Hocus Pocus into evidence
November 25, 10.05 AM – COMPANION ANIMALS

Prescribing ‘medicines’ that has been diluted beyond the Avogadro number and then telling pet owners that their pets would thereby become healthy and later on, charging an academics fee for services provided and ‘medicines’. Actually, for me that was hocus pocus, bordering on fraud.

However, I had patients that I could not cure, but a homeopath could. The demand for veterinary healthcare was far greater than conventional veterinary medicine could meet. Human medicines had many side effects on animals. Out of concern for my patients, I signed up at the ‘guild for quacks’. My life’s work began: conversion of human remedy diagnoses to veterinary remedy diagnoses.

Repeatedly experiencing the same results with the same diseases and the same specific nuances, making the difference in homeopathic success and treatment. Sharing experiences and discovering that other colleagues have similar experiences of their own. That is inductive evidence and the degree of predictability of the results is increasing.


Through more than 40 years of empirically-generated veterinary differential remedy diagnosis (RDx) and the professional nonsense detector continuously on, I turned hocus pocus into evidence. In this presentation, I would like to share several clinical experiences with you.
