Viva Cuba: massive Homeopathic experiment results

Homeopathic ‘vaccine’ tested on 2.3 million Cubans appears to be effective in controlling Leptospirosis epidemic

Leptospirosis is a potentially-fatal infectious disease caused by exposure to contaminated water. During a 2007 epidemic in Cuba, a homeopathic medicine was given to 2.3 million people at high risk of infection, while the remaining 8.8 million population were untreated. In this study by Brach et al Bracho G et al. Large-scale application of highly-diluted bacteria for Leptospirosis epidemic control. Homeopathy, 2010; 99: 156-166 , the largest-ever research study assessing a homeopathic medicine, the homeopathic treatment was “strongly associated with a drastic reduction of disease incidence resulting in complete control of the epidemic.”

Results of Cuban study
Total population 11 million
Rates of infection in
2007 epidemic
Rates of infection in
2008 epidemic
(compared with 2007)
Untreated provinces
(population 8.8 million)
As predicted
Increase of 22%
Provinces given
homeopathic treatment
(population 2.3 million)
Significantly lower than predicted +
epidemic “completely controlled”
Decrease of 84%

These results suggest Homeoprophylaxis as a ‘feasible tool for epidemic control’ and the authors call for further research.
