There is nothing new about fake Agunot, false Gittin, women in America filing false abuse charges. Etc. Etc. Jewish women are no different than the single mothers Ann Coulter discusses. For more info, watch the following and read the book.

The Zirkind rose war flamed up in 1993? Zirkind mentions 1993.

6 years later he uploads a website.

20 years later the FBI cracks up on the rabbis... The situation and its consequences are madness, to say the least. As piece of proof a full quote here.

Accused Kidnap Rabbi Known For ‘Wild West’ Rules

Man at heart of FBI sting operation is well known in the torrid world of non-amicable Orthodox divorce.
10/16/13
 Adam Dickter
 Assistant Managing Editor
 

 Nearly any Orthodox woman who has struggled with the process of obtaining a halachic divorce from an uncooperative or vindictive husband in the New York area has heard the name Mendel Epstein.

 The 68-year old rabbi, who appears to have homes in Flatbush, Brooklyn, and Lakewood, N.J., has been closely involved in the world of agunot, or “chained women,” for some three decades, serving as a toen, the halachic equivalent of a lawyer.

 In an interview with the Five Towns Jewish Times last summer, Rabbi Epstein said he was “disturbed by the number of women who find themselves in unbearably difficult situations” in divorce proceedings. He proposed a “bill of rights” for Jewish wives that includes, “A woman in an abusive relationship has a right to seek a get.”

 But according to the FBI, which rounded up Rabbi Epstein and nine other men in an alleged interstate abduction ring last week and raided several homes and a Monsey yeshiva, his methods of persuading husbands to come around ran afoul of the law, if not halacha, and could land him and his associates in federal prison.

 “I always knew he is a vigilante operating in system similar to the Wild West,” said Rivka Haut, a longtime activist on behalf of agunot who has known the rabbi for years, but said she had no direct knowledge of any abductions.

 However, she said that women in such situations frequently asked her advice about pursuing such extreme measures. Haut, a co-founder of the advocacy group Agunah, Inc., says she has always counseled people to steer clear of violence or illegal schemes.

 “Most of these women had to leave the marriage not because they want to go live with someone else, but because they married someone with serious problems,” Haut said. “Usually, they are desperate to be halachically released.”

 According to the FBI, there are plenty of area women desperate enough to go through with illegal means. The complaint by New Jersey U.S. Attorney Paul J. Fishman, which was obtained by The Jewish Week, says Rabbi Epstein boasted to undercover agents that he carried out batei din, or rabbinical courts, to authorize the use of force, followed by abductions and coerced divorces on a regular basis “every year … year and a half” for an unspecified time period.

 Fishman told The New York Times that two dozen husbands in divorce cases have been identified who may have been abducted from New York and taken to New Jersey to be roughed up by the defendants.

 A message left at Rabbi Epstein’s Brooklyn home was not returned as of Tuesday afternoon. A number listed for Mendel Epstein in Lakewood appeared to be connected to a fax machine. Attempts to identify a lawyer representing him were unsuccessful.

 The Asbury Park Press, citing an unnamed source, reported on Oct. 11 that the investigation was directly related to a similar ongoing case involving an Orthodox couple from Lakewood, David and Judy Wax, who were charged in 2011 with abducting an Israeli man to force him to grant a get. That case is still pending. More arrests related to both cases will be forthcoming, the source told Asbury Park Press.

 The FBI investigation originated in August and spanned until Oct. 7, when agents, including two posing as an agunah and her brother apprehended the defendants in a warehouse in Middlesex County, N.J. The fake scheme involved luring a supposed husband from New York City.

 The complaint alleges that Rabbi Epstein solicited $10,000 for the rabbis presiding in the bet din and an additional $50,000 to $60,000 for “tough guys” to carry out the abduction and coercion. The complaint does not specify whether Rabbi Epstein himself was to receive any of the fees.

 It doesn’t take more than an Internet search to link Rabbi Epstein to controversy. One man, Givon Zirkind, has launched an online crusade against the rabbi, posting an e-book and several YouTube videos that accuse him of various misdeeds against him. The rabbi’s name comes up on several blogs devoted to Orthodox wrongdoing, abuse and corruption.

 The rabbi himself speaks candidly about his unorthodox methods in an interview in “Women Unchained,” a 2011 documentary by filmmakers Beverly Siegel and Leta Letik.

 “I received a call from a young lady; she called and told me her son was kidnapped off a bus in Texas,” Rabbi Epstein says in a clip from “Women Unchained” posted by the Journal News of Rockland.

 “She had heard that I have an ability to do things that are outside the normal parameters and normal channels and if I can help her find her son and if I can help her get a get. … I told her to first call the FBI. If the FBI comes out [and says] that they can’t help, I would then be a little bit interested to see what I can possibly do.”

 The Oct. 7 complaint filed in U.S. District Court in Trenton quotes Rabbi Epstein saying that “basically what we are going to be doing is kidnapping a guy for a couple of hours and beating him up and torturing him and then getting him to give the get.” At one point he mentioned electric cattle prods being used, and at another said his son used karate to persuade the kidnapped men.

 In addition to Rabbi Epstein, the other rabbis arrested were Rabbi Martin Wolmark and Rabbi Jacob Goldstein. Rabbi Wolmark is rosh yeshiva of Shaarei Torah, a prominent High School in upstate Suffern. On Wednesday night, following the arrests, federal agents in six cars conducted a search for evidence at the yeshiva, as well as at Rabbi Epstein’s Brooklyn home, according to press reports.

 Another individual was identified as Ariel Potash, who is cited in the complaint as the man who served as a shaliach, or emissary, to accept the get on behalf of the agent pretending to be an agunah.

 Rabbi Goldstein is not the same person as the politically active Crown Heights chasidic leader by the same name who is chairman of Brooklyn’s Community Board 9.

 In all, 10 people were arrested in the scheme, apprehended at the warehouse in New Jersey as they gathered to carry out the fake kidnap plot. The case is a federal matter because it involves alleged kidnapping and crossing state lines. Denied bail, the defendants remained in custody as of Tuesday afternoon, though a bail hearing was set for that day.

 Rabbi Epstein is known to have served as a toen, or advocate/adviser to people appearing before rabbinical courts for the past 30 years. It is unclear if he has any other livelihood, though haut said he at one point held a synagogue pulpit and was the principal of a girls’ yeshiva.

 A business, Mendel Epstein and Associates is listed at his Brooklyn address with him as managing partner.
 The arrests, which garnered national news coverage, cast a spotlight on the ugly world of non-amicable Orthodox divorces in which men are empowered to prevent women from moving on with their lives.

 Numerous organizations have been formed to advocate for such women and New York law has been amended to allow judges to consider a couple’s get status when dividing marital assets. Also, several area rabbis have been known to act as intermediaries in such cases, sometimes asking for payment for their services.

 Goon squads that force recalcitrant husbands to issue the divorce have been mostly the stuff of Jewish urban legend, though a few cases, such as the 2011 Wax case, have gone to the legal system.

 Haut, an Orthodox activist who is working on an upcoming book, “The Agunah Chronicles,” with Susan Aranoff, with whom she cofounded Agunah, Inc., said she was “surprised to see the headlines” about the FBI sting but “not surprised to see the content.

 “Everybody knew very well about his activities, which were not always on behalf of women, but sometimes on behalf of husbands. He plays many roles: dayan [judge], toen and vigilante.”

 Haut said that when she and Aranoff started out as advocates for agunot, Rabbi Epstein approached them “in a very charming way” to teach them about a “fascinating, complicated world” and referred many women to their organization.
 She said that while she and Aranoff deal extensively with the rabbi and his activities in their book, to be published by MacFarland Publishing, they had not named him in early drafts, but will do so now.

 Haut faults leading rabbis who shape modern halacha for failing to come up with a takana, or solution, to empower women to free themselves from bad, sometimes dangerous marriages, though many such modifications have been proposed by rabbis and agunah advocates. Proposals include a pre-nuptial agreement to provide a get, and a process of ex post facto annulment of a marriage agreement, if needed.

 “Today’s rabbinate is not willing to use halachic solutions that certainly exist, leaving the field wide open for other rabbis to take advantage,” said Haut.

 While denouncing any illegal methods, Haut said, “I blame the established rabbis for leaving a vacuum where people like that can step in.”

 In addition to the legal issues in the case, there is also the question of whether those who may have paid tens of thousands for the rabbi's alleged services got what they paid for.

 While it has been a common practice to pressure husbands into granting a get through actions within the community -- such as issuing a seruv, a kind of excommunication from religious life, --physically forced gittin create, at the very least, a halachic gray area.

 "A get, in limited circumstances, after a reputable beis din has decided it is proper to pressure the recalcitrant husband, is valid even if given under duress," said Rabbi Avi Shafran, a spokesman for Agudath Israel of America. "Usually, though, in our society, such duress consists of “shunning” sorts of pressures: not allowing the man to receive an aliya, and things like that. 

 "Physical duress, if it violates secular law, would not, to the best of my knowledge, be permissible."

"Adapt or perish": It is high time for women to be able to receive or give a Get without the current requisite permission of the husband. The younger generation looks to this practice as antiquated, barbaric, with fear and disdain. If it is the goal for women to stay in the fold, then allow them the respect of being able to hallachically leave a home where there is no peace so they may start anew to create and share that peace.

If Orthodox rabbis really want to help women obtain gets, they would insist that every ketuvah contain a get pre-signed by the husband. Many conservative ketuvot, mine included, contain such a get. Jewish wives are unlikely to be so immature as to add their signature in a moment of heated argument. However, for those who need to leave a marriage, this would be a life-saver.

Why " It is unclear if he has any other livelihood, though haut said he at one point held a synagogue pulpit and was the principal of a girls’ yeshiva." ? Anyone familiar with Rabbi Epstein could have told the reporter that he headed a girl's school, Bais Yaakov of Flatbush which closed around 1980. He is currently the Rabbi in a Kensington Brooklyn shul. Doesn't anyone do any fact checking at the Jewish Week?

The sad thing is that once the details of the method in which Mendel Epstein operated come out in court, the consensus in the Charedi world will be that gitten in which he was involved are invalid. This will result in children from second marriages in which women obtained the services of Epstein to be considered mamzairim and unmarriageable. I’m not a fan of how Epstein operated, but the children are innocent.

This is deepest stone-age bullshit of the worst kind:

"This will result in children [...] to be considered mamzairim and unmarriageable."

Epstein is not the only idiot and criminal there.

Viel wird man von dieser Frau vermutlich nicht mehr hören. Die Ärzte haben Schweigepflicht. Aber kann Schweigepflicht sie hindern, gegen Hamer Strafanzeige zu erstatten? Nein, selbstverständlich nicht!

Die Staatsanwaltschaft ist  an ihre Dienstpflicht gebunden. Die muß den Fall aufnehmen. Alles andere wäre ein Verbrechen.

Zum Artikel von Georg Kausch

Sehr geehrter Herr M.,

ich möchte mich Ihnen kurz vorstellen: Mein Name ist A. Z. Ich bin die Patientin von Dr. Hamer, die Patientin aus dem Fall Nr. 15 in Dr. Hamer's neuestem Buch "Mein Studentenmädchen". Dieser – mein – Fall hat sich genau so "zugetragen", wie es Dr. Hamer beschreibt: Ein unglaublicher Fall, eine unglaubliche Dramatik, die sich in meinem Fall "abgespielt" hat. Daß ich heute hier sitze und Ihnen diese Zeilen dazu schreiben kann, grenzt an ein echtes Wunder. Alles hätte ganz anders ausgehen können ... Die Gehirn-OP hing wie ein Damoklesschwert über mir. Es war Fünf vor Zwölf, daß ich diese für mich angesetzte Gehirn-OP "absagen" konnte. Denn Dank Dr. Hamer und der Germanischen Heilkunde wußten wir, mein Partner und ich:

Es gibt 4 Dinge, die man NIE an sich machen lassen sollte:

1. Keine Gehirn-OP,
2. Keine Chemotherapie,
3. Keine Bestrahlung,
4. Kein Morphium.

Nachdem ich aus meinem Wachkoma wieder zu mir gekommen bin, haben die Schulmediziner immer und immer wieder auf mich eingeredet, auf meinen Partner eingeredet, diese Gehirn-OP unbedingt machen zu lassen! Alles wäre nur Routine, sagten die Schuldmediziner! Und ich? Ich wäre ein Leben lang ein "Gehirn-Patient" gewesen, eine OP hätte die nächste nach sich gezogen.

Ich möchte Menschen, denen es ähnlich wie mir "ergeht", Mut machen, daß sie der Germanischen Heilkunde vertrauen und damit die Entscheidung über ihr Leben, über ihren Körper, so wieder "selbst in die Hand nehmen". Ich bin sehr dankbar dafür, dass ich dieses Ereignis überlebt habe und überstanden habe, ohne eine Gehirn-OP. Diese Gehirn-OP abzulehnen, war meine Entscheidung und ich würde diese Entscheidung heute genau wieder so treffen!

Wir leben in einer Gesellschaft, wo sich jeder selbst der Nächste ist: Kaum Unterstützung durch den Nächsten, viele "kaputte" Familien, zerrüttete Beziehungen, in einer totalen Konsum-Gesellschaft, wo es nur noch darum geht, dem Geld "hinterherzuhecheln" und zu funktionieren bis man umfällt und "weggetragen" wird. Und das nennt sich dann LEBEN? Wir alle sollten endlich aufwachen aus diesem "ALBTRAUM", der sich da "Gesellschaft" nennt. Denn von dieser Gesellschaft können wir nur krank werden!

Wir sollten endlich wieder VERANTWORTUNG für uns übernehmen, und endlich wieder "über den Gartenzaun drüber schauen". Wir sollten uns endlich wieder BEWUßT werden, was ein Leben ausmacht, welche Werte uns wirklich wichtig sind und welche Dinge der Mensch überhaupt nicht braucht, völlig überflüssig sind. Wir sollten endlich wieder MUT haben, uns zu trauen, unsere Meinung zu sagen und sie zu vertreten und uns nicht duckmäuserisch in die letzte Ecke zurückziehen, die uns noch bleibt. 

Und wir Menschen sollten endlich wieder ZUSAMMENHALTEN: In guten wie in schlechten Zeiten!

Ich DANKE meinen Schutzengeln, die immer bei mir waren und sind. Ich DANKE meinem Partner, für sein "Für-mich-da sein" in dieser hochdramatischen Zeit meines Falles. Lieber Herr Dr. Hamer, DANKE für Ihre Unterstützung, während dieser hochdramtischen Zeit und DANKE, daß es durch Sie die GERMANISCHE HEILKUNDE gibt! Tiefe Verbeugung, ich ziehe den Hut vor Ihnen.

Freundliche Grüße
A. Z.

Zum Artikel von Georg Kausch

Sehr geehrter Herr M.,

zu meinem Brief vom gestrigen Tag möchte ich Ihnen noch einen Nachtrag dazu schreiben. Sie sollen wissen, daß mir auch heute noch, fast ein Jahr nach diesem Ereignis, mir es emotional noch immer sehr nahe geht, was mit mir passiert ist, was mir und meinem Parner passiert ist. Deshalb dieser Nachtrag heute.

Durch mein "Ereignis" letztes Jahr, es hatte mich von einem Tag zum anderen "umgehauen" und ich war total orientierungslos durch den Hirndruck, den ich hatte, habe u. a. meinen Partner nicht mehr erkannt, wußte nicht mehr wer ich bin, wie ich heiße, wo ich wohne u.a., brachte mich der Notarzt-Krankenwagen in die Universitätsklinik in Dresden, wo ich auf die Intensivstation kam. Das weiß ich alles nur vom Erzählen von meinem Partner, da ich ja geistig nicht da war. Zwei Wochen war ich auf der Intensivstation. Ich konnte selbstständig essen, habe mich allein angezogen, konnte sagen, was ich essen und trinken will, also auch das Sprechen und Reden funktionierte und auch die Motorik. Ich habe mit meinem Partner gesprochen, ich habe mit dem Pflegepersonal gesprochen und mit der Ärzteschaft.

Alle haben gedacht: Ich bin geistig anwesend, also da, ich "kriege alles mit, ich höre alles". Die große "Überraschung" für meinen Partner, für alle, die mich in dieser Zeit erlebten, und für mich ein phänomenales Erlebnis ist und wird es immer bleiben, daß ich geistig wie auf einem anderen Planeten war und so diese ganze Zeit, diese ganzen zwei Wochen auf der Intensivstation "verbrachte". Ich war mit einem Schiff unterwegs und habe mir bekannte Menschen besucht. Das Schiff legte an, ich ging von Bord und besuchte liebe Menschen. Ich ging wieder an Bord, fuhr weiter mit dem Schiff und besuchte wieder liebe Menschen. Das ging die ganze Zeit so. Auf dem Schiff war ich ganz allein, es war auch kein Luxusliner, nein, es war ein sehr langer Frachter, so wie er heute auf unseren Wasserstraßen überall unterwegs ist. Irgendwann war diese Fahrt für mich auf diesem Schiff zu Ende. Das Schiff legte an, ich ging von Bord und ich wußte: Hier gehöre ich hin, ich bin angekommen.

Durch Dr. Hamer weiß ich, dass das ein Wachkoma war, was ich hatte. Ich habe keinerlei Erinnerung an diese Zeit. Ich kann mich nur an "meine Geschichte mit dem Schiff" erinnern. Und ich kann mich daran erinnern, daß mein Partner, der mich täglich besuchen kam auf der Intensivstation Kopfhörer mitbrachte, die er mir aufsetzte, nachdem er mir gesagt hatte: "Hier ist eine Musik für dich, die dich wieder gesund macht. Du mußt diese Musik hören!" Und diese Musik ist das "Mein Studentenmädchen" von Dr. Hamer. Und dieses "Mein Studentenmädchen" hat mir das Leben gerettet!

Irgend wann bin ich aus diesem Wachkoma "erwacht". Von Tag zu Tag kam ich mehr zu mir und realisierte nach und nach mein Erlebtes und was "Mein Studentenmädchen" mit mir "gemacht hatte". Es hat mir das Leben gerettet! Mein Partner hat mir das Leben gerettet, indem er mir diese Musik, dieses "Studentenmädchen" mit auf die Intensivstation brachte, und, ich diese Melodie über Kopfhörer hörte. Für mich ein absolutes Phänomen! Unglaublich, aber wahr. Und auch heute noch, höre ich, hören wir (mein Partner und ich) "Mein Studentenmädchen" Tag und Nacht: Am Tag die Tagversion, in der Nacht die Nachtversion. Das ist für mich sehr wichtig, "Mein Studentenmädchen" weiter zu hören, damit ich nicht in ein Rezidiv komme und sich das Ganze somit wiederholen könnte.

Denn es ging ja weiter: Im Anschluss an die Intensivstation kam ich zur Reha, wo man mir ja ständig die Wichtigkeit dieser Gehirn-OP klarmachen wollte. Und der absolute Hammer: Eine Ärztin, die zu mir aufs Zimmer kam und "auf mich einredete", dass ich diese Gehirn-OP machen lassen soll. Ich habe ihr gesagt: "Nein, ich lasse diese Gehirn-OP nicht machen. Mir geht es wieder gut, ich bin geistig wieder voll da. Ich habe noch Vieles vor in meinem Leben. In meinem Gehirn wird nicht operiert!" Daraufhin sagte diese Ärztin zu mir: "Ich kann Sie verstehen. Ich würde diese Gehirn-OP an mir auch nicht machen lassen!"

Da hat es mir echt die Sprache verschlagen und ich konnte gar nichts mehr sagen. Ich war ja lange Zeit danach weiter krank, durch den Hirndruck, den ich gehabt hatte, war etwas in meinem Schreib- und Rechenzentrum im Kopf "durcheinander geraten": Ich hatte Probleme beim Schreiben und Rechnen. Mit der Zeit hat sich auch das gegeben.

Und es ging weiter: Einen Tag vor Ostern, also Gründdonnerstag, hatte ich die Kündigung von meinem Arbeitgeber im Briefkasten. So überaus "sozial" leben wir hier in dieser Gesellschaft! "Mein" Arbeitgeber, der meinem Partner immer wieder gesagt hatte, ich solle mir keine Gedanken machen, wenn ich wieder gesund bin, ist mein Arbeitsplatz für mich da.

Und es ging weiter: Die Krankenkasse wollte mich wieder auf Reha schicken. Nach meinen Erlebnissen aber bei der ersten Reha, ich ja dort überhaupt keine "Ruhe" hatte, meine ambulanten Therapien von zu Hause aus machte und ich der Meinung bin, dass man zu Hause in seiner vertrauten Umgebung bei seiner Familie am besten gesundet, habe ich keinen neuen Antrag auf Reha gestellt bei der Krankenkasse. Die Krankenkasse hatte mir aber schon vorher "gedroht", daß wenn ich keinen Reha-Antrag stelle, bekomme ich kein Krankengeld mehr gezahlt. Ich stellte keinen neuen Reha-Antrag, weil ich mich nicht erpressen lasse, ging zu meiner Hausärztin und ließ mich wieder arbeitsfähig schreiben. Anschließend ging ich auf das Arbeitsamt und meldete mich arbeitslos.

Und es geht weiter: Nun macht mir das Arbeitsamt Druck. So und so viel Bewerbungen sind zu schreiben und nachzuweisen, sonst wird mir das Arbeitslosengeld gestrichen!

Immer wieder frage ich mich: "Wo und wie leben wir eigentlich hier? Und das nennt sich LEBEN?" Wir befinden uns in einer "Schrottgesellschaft", in der sich keiner um den anderen schert. Jeder ist sich selbst der Nächste. Entweder man kümmert sich selbst, wenn nicht, hat man eben Pech und man hat verloren. Man muß nur funktionieren. Und wenn man nicht mehr funktioniert, dann hat man eben Pech gehabt!

Deutschland hat so viele psychisch Kranke wie noch nie, Tendenz steigend. Und auch die Zahl der schon psychisch kranken Kinder hat sehr zugenommen. Weil man in einer so kaputten Gesellschaft, wie wir sie tagtäglich erleben einfach nur krank werden kann. Und wir, so viele Menschen, sind einfach noch nicht aufgewacht. Sie machen immer wieder mit und das, was von ihnen "gefordert" wird.

Da kann ich nur sagen: "Wacht doch endlich auf und kommt zu euch"! Der Rundbrief Nr. 65 spricht mir da ganz einfach aus dem Herzen. Und noch etwas zum "Mein Studentenmädchen": Musik hat schon immer die Menschen zusammengebracht. Und dieses kleine Lied von Dr. Hamer, das sogenannte Zweite Standbein der Germanischen Heilkunde ermöglicht nicht nur, daß die Germanische Heilkunde in die Wahrnehmung vieler, vieler Menschen gelangt sondern, das große Phänomen: Es verbindet die Menschen wieder zu Gemeinschaften. Jetzt erst ist es möglich, daß die Germanische Heilkunde ihren Weg in die breite Öffentlichkeit findet.

Ich kann allen Menschen nur empfehlen, "Mein Studentenmächen" zu hören, sich mit der Germanischen Heilkunde zu beschäftigen und sich diese zu eigen zu machen.

Freundliche Grüße
A. Z.


Anmerkung von H. Pilhar

Wachkoma ist eine doppelter Nierensammelrohr-Konflikt, also Existenzkonflikte.

Eine schier unglaubliche Geschichte, die im Buch "Mein Studentenmädchen" mit Hirn-Cts dokumentiert, erklärt wird.

Unsere Gesellschaft

Die Universitätsklinik Dresden ist am Toben!

Das uns beherrschende System drängt den Bürger mit Macht in die nächsten Konflikte, anstatt ihm helfend unter die Arme zu greifen. Es liegt Absicht dahinter! Wacht auf!

At first sight this seems to be one more jerk, lining up with wonderful homeopathic remedies against ebola. But this case is different a) by very uncommon, perhaps unique name and b) rather amateurish statements and appearance.

Ebola & Homeopathic Treatment

by Givon Zirkind, D.Hom.

Ebola is a very serious disease that requires professional medical care. Currently, Ebola has no known cure, vaccine or drug1. This article analyzes ebola from a homeopathic perspective and suggests possible courses of homeopathic treatment. Due to the seriousness of the disease, the treatments discussed would require an expert homeopath. Unfortunately, in the United States, almost all conventional medical doctors are not certified in the specialty of homeopathy. These treatments would best be conducted in teams of conventional medical doctors and homeopaths. This article is for informational purposes only and to promote the study of possible experimental treatments.

Ebola starts with flu like symptoms: fever, sore throat, muscle pain, headaches, fatigue. General malaise. This may be accompanied by vomitting, diarrhea and a rash (macules, papules, erythmaya). Often, a loss of appetite. Also, there may be joint, muscle and abdominal pain.2345

The less common symptoms are: difficulty swallowing, hiccups, shortness of breath, and chest pain.

The second stage of the disease involves bleeding. The bleeding is often light and not profuse but, interminable. Bleeding is prevalent in the mucous membranes, the gastro-intenstinal tract, nose, vagina, gums, skin. Eyes may become red. Vomit & cough bloody. Blood in the stool. (Petechiae, purpura, ecchymoses & hematomas develop.)

The pains are apparently indicative of the progression of the disease. The stomach pains appear to be the precusor of internal bleeding of the abdomin. The chest pains evolve from the weakening of the lungs with subsequent bleeding.

Symptoms requiring further definition for a homeopathic diagnosis:

Fever, headache, fatigue, blood in stool & vagina, joint pain. For homeopathic treatment, these symptoms require much more specification. Origin, color, concommitant symptoms, etc.

Repetorizing the main rubric/symptom of the disease:

FEVER, HAEMORRHAGE, oozing blood – as a keynote, the one rubic repetorization indicates the remedies:
SULPHURICUM ACIDUM and CROTUS HORRIDUS.

THE REMEDIES MOST STRONGLY INDICATED IN TREATING EBOLA

– SULPHURICUM ACIDUM has an anamnesis and symptomology very similar to ebola.
– CROTUS HORRIDUS has many similar but less severe symptoms as its keynotes.
– CROTALUS CASCAVELLA likewise, has bleeding and haemorrhaging.


Using Kent's Repetory produces the following list of rubrics:

EYE, ECCHYMOSIS
NOSE, EPISTAXIS
MOUTH, BLEEDING, oozing of gums, GUMS
THROAT, SWALLOWING, difficult
STOMACH VOMITTING, blood
HICCOUGH
RESPIRATION, DIFFICULT
EXPECTORTION, BLOODY, spitting of blood

[More symptoms could be repetorized, but for accuracy, further definition is required. Ex. Color of blood in stool, etc.]

Based upon the above list of rubrics from Kent, the following remedies repetorize:6

ARUM TRIPHYLLUM, FERRUM, CROTALUS HORRIDUS, SULFURICUM ACIDUM
Lower on the list but still notable: STANNUM, CROTUS CASCAVELLA, ELAPS and a few others.

NOTES FROM PROVINGS

– ARUM TRIPHYLLUM is more of a vesicular remedy and is not as haemorrhagic as seen in ebola.

– CROTALUS HORRIDUS is a remedy that is well noted that affects the decomposition of the blood—as the snake poison itself does. Ecchymoses is a noted symptom of CROTALUS HORRIDUS.
– CROTALUS CASCAVELLA Importantly, casavella poisoning has the keynotes of ebola symptomology. The bleeding, the haemorhaging, the coughing & vomitting often with pain, sleeplessness, pain in the chest, fever. Difficulty swallowing. Bleeding from the gums. Nosebleed. Bloody diarrhea and hiccup.

– FERRUM is well noted a remedy that affects the blood.

– SULFURICUM ACIDUM has very similar haemorraghic symptomology compared with ebola.


PROPHYLACTIC TREATMENT

Until one or more remedies are clinically proven to be statistically highly efficacious, the prophylactic treatment should include those remedies that seem most likely to be effective with treating ebola.

SULPHURICUM ACIDUM, CROTUS HORRIDUS, CROTALUS CASCAVELLA, FERRUM and ARUM TRIPHYLLUM.

[A standard homeopathic prophylactic course of treatment is 30C / 3x/day / 3 days.]


In Sum: As a homeopath, sight unseen, without any further symptom definition, I would recommend CROTALUS CASCAVELLA, CROTUS HORRIDUS and SULFURICUM ACIDUM. ARUM TRIPHYLLUM and FERRUM should be used if indicated. It must be remembered, that a patient, upon examination, may have a different symptom picture that would indicate another homeopathic remedy.

Klinghardt offshoot ordered to stop making unsubstantiated claims

The British Advertising Standards Authority has upheld a complaint made by Dr. Stephen Barrett against the Institute of Resonance Medicine, a facility in that operates the ResoMed Clinic in Northern Scotland. The organization, which is headed by Lothar Zieger, M.D., is described on its Web site as "the official training institute" responsible for teaching Dietrich Klinghardt's methods of Applied Neurobiology to holistic healthcare practitioners throughout the British Isles. In July 2014, Dr. Barrett challenged three claims related to the ResoMed Clinic:

"Most symptoms of pain and/or dysfunction are caused by chronic infections and the resulting inflammation. These as well as psychological symptoms can be attributed to toxic metal contamination in most cases."

"One of our latest additions has been the introduction of special energiser chips and plates which provide unique protection from both geopathic and electromagnetic stress (EMS) such as from mobile phones, the use of laptops or EMS in the sleeping location."

"Patients are offered a comprehensive health check including: . . . a kinesiological evaluation of their regulation capacity (the state of the autonomic nervous system—the immune system—the body's capacity to heal itself)."


When the Institute failed to respond to a query, the ASA concluded that the claims were misleading and referred the case its compliance team. Dr. Klinghardt, who practices medicine in the State of Washington, claims that "autonomic response testing" can identify toxins, infections and other health problems by noting what happens to muscle strength when when various substances are placed within the patient's "energy fields."

NEWSLETTER
 
JANUARY 2012
 

ResoMed™ Institute Scotland: Training in Resonance Medicine – Clinic for Sustainable Healthcare – Biological Apothecary.

 Welcome to ResoMed™ - The Institute of Resonance Medicine which since 01.03.2011 is the new name of the former Scottish Klinghardt Institute of Applied Neurobiology (SKIAN)!

 We are based in beautiful Northeast Scotland (30 minutes from Inverness airport), seeing patients from all over the British Isles and beyond with our particular expertise for treating chronic Lyme Disease, autistic spectrum disorders, all chronic pain syndromes and many other conditions often considered ‘untreatable’ or ‘unexplained’ by official medicine. We have developed Dr Klinghardt’s methods of integrated healthcare (‘applied neurobiology’) into a stringent, multi-level diagnostic and treatment algorithm which provides highly successful support for our patients reaching their health goals. This includes laboratory testing (toxicological testing, reliable Lyme Disease testing) as well as being able to refer within a team of mercury-free dentists, cranial osteopaths and other specialized practitioners in sustainable healthcare all over Europe. Since the beginning of 2012 we also offer Live Blood (“Dark Field”) Microscopy as a very useful additional tool to monitor treatment progress.

 The ResoMed™ Clinic Scotland has since its foundation in 2004 become one of the most successful Integrated Healthcare Centres in Europe. Most symptoms of pain and/or dysfunction are caused by chronic infections and the resulting inflammation. These as well as psychological symptoms can be attributed to toxic metal contamination in most cases. Therefore our initial focus is a safe and thorough detoxification of metals and xenobiotics (man-made industrial toxins) with natural (herbal) chelation therapy, combined with anti-inflammatory treatments using plant-based antimicrobials. We pride ourselves in providing totally individualised natural treatment interventions, established and adjusted with a special form of kinesiology: first of all a preventive medical, nutritional and lifestyle consultation, and eventually the right set of remedies at the right frequency at the right dose at the right time, which are reviewed regularly to adjust to the patient’s progress. The importance of resolving emotional and family conflicts with cutting-edge psychotherapeutic methods is an integral part of our treatment approach.

 In October 2008 we have opened the ResoMed™ Clinic Switzerland in Schwyz, one of the most beautiful locations by Lake Lucerne in Central Switzerland (45 min from Zurich airport) which has been growing rapidly ever since. This is where we are also offering Live Blood (“Dark Field”) Microscopy as well as Ozone Therapy in addition to the full spectrum diagnostics and therapies.

 From the ResoMed™ Apothecary you can now order more than 150 nutritional and herbal supplements that really work. This is a ‘treasure chest’ of prime quality, clean, highly effective, natural remedies that have been uniquely sourced from around the world and have tested well clinically over the years. ALL of these remedies should be tested for the individual patient by an experienced healthcare practitioner and NOT be taken on a “trial-and-error” or “protocol” basis.

 One of our latest additions has been the introduction of special energiser chips and plates which provide unique protection from both geopathic and electromagnetic stress (EMS) such as from mobile phones, the use of laptops or EMS in the sleeping location. These are the only devices for that purpose which we have found to work consistently and they are equally effective as sleep sanctuaries at a much lower cost. We also offer the finest water filtration and energising system on the market at very reasonable prices. You can find them in the Apothecary section under “ResoMed™ EnergyBalance” – UMH.

 For therapists as well as interested lay-people, we will offer a complete new teaching cycle of the Resonance Medicine Curriculum starting in March 2012. The concept of Resonance Medicine is based on the work of Dr Dietrich Klinghardt MD (USA) and has been further developed over the past eleven years within the ResoMed (formerly SKIAN) Clinic. The curriculum comprises the theoretical background of Resonance Medicine, including topics such as The Five Levels of Healing and The Seven Factors of Disease. The practical sequences deal with diagnostic and treatment techniques such as Autonomic Response Testing (ART), Mental Field Therapy, Psychokinesiology, Systemic Therapy and essential tools required for Bioenergetic Testing. Completion of the training will enable the practitioner to work exclusively with Resonance Medicine or integrate it within their own areas of expertise. For further information please refer to class descriptions on our website.

The new curriculum which is taught once a year only is due to start in March 2012 with the Resonance Medicine 1 (RM-1) Foundation Course which includes an introduction to ART (Autonomic Response Testing). We also offer (4th level) workshops in Systemic Family Constellation as a group healing tool, following Bert Hellinger’s work. Family Constellation is a highly effective concept of systemic therapy which uses representatives in a group setting to work on and heal family trauma. This dynamic shows most frequently in chronic or repeated ‘failures’ in life, be it in relationships or with work, or chronic depression, or a feeling of ‘not (fully) belonging’ besides others. We have kept a keen interest in Bert Hellinger’s work and that of many of the major protagonists of systemic therapy in Germany since 1998, and this gentle but deep work has been one of our areas of special interest for many years.

 During 2012 there will also be a number of talks and day workshops all over Europe on the treatment of Lyme Disease, chronic neurological illness, chronic pain and other topical issues of Sustainable Healthcare in the 21st century. Details will be announced on the “education” part of the website within the coming month.

Background

Summary of Council decision:

Three issues were investigated, all of which were upheld.
Ad

A website, www.sustainablehealth.org.uk , for ResoMed "The Institute of Resonance Medicine", featured a newsletter that stated "Most symptoms of pain and/or dysfunction are caused by chronic infections and the resulting inflammation. These as well as psychological symptoms can be attributed to toxic metal contamination in most cases. Therefore our initial focus is a safe and thorough detoxification of metals and xenobiotics (man-made industrial toxins) with natural (herbal) chelation therapy, combined with anti-inflammatory treatments using plant-based antimicrobials". Further text stated "One of our latest additions has been the introduction of special energiser chips and plates which provide unique protection from both geopathic and electromagnetic stress (EMS) such as from mobile phones, the use of laptops or EMS in the sleeping location. These are the only devices for that purpose which we have found to work consistently and they are equally effective as sleep sanctuaries at a much lower cost".

Text on the page headed "The ResoMed Clinic" stated "During the initial consultation with Dr Zieger (90 minutes), patients are offered a comprehensive health check including:heart rate variability (HRV)-testing, as well as a kinesiological evaluation of their regulation capacity (the state of the autonomic nervous system - the immune system - the body's capacity to heal itself) ... ".
Issue

Stephen Barrett, MD, operator of quackwatch.org, challenged whether the following claims were misleading and could be substantiated:

1. "Most symptoms of pain and/or dysfunction are caused by chronic infections and the resulting inflammation. These as well as psychological symptoms can be attributed to toxic metal contamination in most cases";

2. "One of our latest additions has been the introduction of special energiser chips and plates which provide unique protection from both geopathic and electromagnetic stress (EMS) such as from mobile phones, the use of laptops or EMS in the sleeping location"; and

3. " ... patients are offered a comprehensive health check including: ... a kinesiological evaluation of their regulation capacity (the state of the autonomic nervous system - the immune system - the body's capacity to heal itself)".
CAP Code (Edition 12)
12.1
3.1
3.3
3.7
Response

ResoMed Ltd did not respond to the ASA's enquiries.
Assessment

Upheld

The ASA was concerned by ResoMed's lack of response and apparent disregard for the Code, which was a breach of CAP Code (Edition 12) rule 1.7 (Unreasonable delay). We reminded them of their responsibility to respond promptly to our enquiries and we told them to do so in future.

We had not seen any evidence to demonstrate that pain, dysfunction and psychological symptoms were attributed to toxic metal contamination in most cases; that special energiser chips and plates provided unique protection from geopathic and electromagnetic stress; nor that the advertised service could provide an evaluation of the body's capacity to heal itself. In the absence of robust documentary evidence to support those claims, we considered that they had not been substantiated and were therefore misleading.

On points one, two and three, the ad breached CAP Code (Edition 12) rules 3.1 (Misleading advertising), 3.7 (Substantiation) and 12.1 (Medicines, medical devices, health-related products and beauty products).


Action

The ad must not appear again in its current form. We referred the matter to the CAP's Compliance team.

Recalls only partially effective in removing drugs from dietary supplements

A study has found that a significant number of dietary supplement and herbal products for which the FDA initiated a Class I recall due to adulteration with drug ingredients were still adulterated. Class I recalls, which are voluntary, involve products that the FDA believes have a reasonable possibility of causing serious adverse consequences or death. Since 2004, about half the Class I drug recalls have involved such products.

The researchers identified and tested 27 products that had

(a) been recalled between January 1, 2009, and December 31, 2012;

(b) were available in July or August 2013 directly from websites of supplement manufacturers or retailers (as opposed to general e-commerce sites such as Amazon.com); and

(c) had the same name, manufacturer, and distributor listed on the purchased product as in the FDA recall.

The products, which were marketed for sports enhancement, weight loss, or sexual enhancement, were purchased an average of 34 months after the recall. At least one pharmaceutical adulterant was identified in 18 of the 27 products. It was not apparent whether the products were manufactured before or after their recall dates. The researchers believe that more aggressive enforcement of the law, changes to the law to increase the FDA's enforcement powers, or both will be required if sales of such products are to be prevented in the future.

Old chiropractic business manual uncovered

Software engineer Dan Kegel has discovered a 61-page manual from the Chiropractic Business Institute that appears to have circulated in the 1950s. The manual states:

"In addition to technique, there are four other factors of vital importance. You must also be a master salesman, an astute psychologist, a brilliant individualist, and an able business man.
All doctors are naturally familiar with Diagnosis, but its interpretation means only the diagnosing of disease. Yet there is a second diagnosis of equal and vital importance. It deals primarily with analyzing a patient from a business standpoint, to determine his worth to the doctor.

Many of the sales pitches are geared toward
(a) persuading patients to continue to have weekly care long after their symptoms have resolved,
(b) undermining trust in medical doctors, and
(c) promoting chiropractic for preventing as well as treating the gamut of health problems."


The themes are still common in currently available chiropractic practice-building courses.

Continuing request for help from Dr. Barrett

In June 2010, Doctor's Data, Inc. sued Dr. Barrett because it didn't like what he wrote about them on Quackwatch and in this newsletter. The events leading up to the suit are described at http://www.quackwatch.org/14Legal/dd_suit.html  In November, 2011, about half of the allegations were dismissed, but discovery was permitted for more than a year. The rest of the suit is ripe for dismissal (the court is now considering another motion to dismiss), but the proceedings have cost hundreds of thousands of dollars. Even small donations, if sent by enough subscribers to this newsletter, will be very helpful. Contributions to the defense fund can be made by mail or through http://www.quackwatch.org/00AboutQuackwatch/donations.html
