Homeopathy shows us a pattern that Poison/"Vitamin A" and nightshades are TOXIC

I'm not here to argue homeopathy with anyone.  I have used homeopathy in the past with good results, seen it work (and seen it not work, just like ANY OTHER MODALITY), and I will continue to use it as a tool in the toolbox for when it is APPROPRIATE.  That said, the ROOT of the widespread Poison/"Vitamin A" and glyphosate/Roundup epidemic is mostly beyond homeopathy's reach, in my opinion.  Homeopaths thinking that they have the single-modality solution to all the world's problems--they don't--need not come and try to educate me further, and cynical types who have discarded homeopathy without ever trying it should save their unbridled ignorance for someone who cares (which isn't me).

Let's first start out with one for the homeopathy haters.  A successful PHASE 2 clinical trial of a homeopathic preparation of malagueta peppers aka Capsicum frutescens L., a member of the nightshade/Solanaceae family (see much more further below on the nightshades):

Efficacy of a Homeopathic Medicine of Capsicum frutescens L. (Solanaceae) in the Treatment of Hot Flashes in Menopausal Women: A Phase-2 Randomized Controlled Trial.

This randomized, placebo-controlled, double-blind, phase-2 clinical trial was designed to test the hypothesis that, in menopausal women, the homeopathic medicine Malagueta (30 CH), compared with placebo, will significantly reduce the intensity of hot flashes, after 4 weeks of treatment. The primary outcome was the intensity of hot flashes, measured by the Measure Yourself Medical Outcome Profile (MYMOP) instrument. A total of 40 women were enrolled in the study, 20 in each group.
The homeopathic medicine of Capsicum frutescens (Malagueta) was superior to placebo in reducing the intensity of hot flashes in menopausal women after 4 weeks of treatment.

Playing the Big Pharma rules and still WINNING.  That said, what I'm really here to shine a light on is this.

Like cures like

“By similar things a disease is produced and through the application of the like is cured”. Hippocrates (460-377 BC), ‘Father of Medicine’.

According to homeopathic understanding, that which a substance is capable of causing, it is also capable of curing.


Minimum dose

The principle that only ‘the minimum dose’ should be employed is based upon the understanding that the stimulus of the medicine triggers the intrinsic healing response. Following this principle, we give only enough medicine to initiate this healing response. This response then carries on, driven by the body’s need to maintain health and balance. 

The use of the minimum dose has the advantage that it does not produce the gross side effects so often caused by conventional treatments. 

The concept of the minimum dose is similar to Arndt-Schultz law (named after the pharmacologist Hugo Schultz and the psychiatrist Rudolf Arndt, who formulated the law). 

Arndt stated: 
“Weak stimuli accelerate vital activity, medium stimuli raise it slightly, strong ones suppress it and very strong ones halt it.” 

This is usually simplified as follows: small doses stimulate, medium doses inhibit and large doses kill. Thus the minimum, potentised dose is employed by homeopaths.

Let's take a second to prove that large doses of Poison/"Vitamin A" KILL first.

High-dose beta-carotene KILLS people, three studies have shown this.

Retinoic acid (Retin-A) KILLS people.

Carrot juice (carotenoids) plus Vitamin A supplements has KILLED a person.

An important quote, backed up by four references, from a giant review paper on the neurotoxicity of Poison/"Vitamin A": "Nonetheless, it has been demonstrated that vitamin A intake among well-nourished subjects may lead to decreased life quality and increased mortality rates."

Retinoic acid (Accutane) has been well-demonstrated to induce suicidal thoughts and actions in people.

We have a strong basis for the LARGE doses KILLING people above.  Undeniable.  So, they are candidates for being homeopathic remedies because they are POISONS.

More on homeopathic theory, just to drive it home.


Homeopathy, also known as homeopathic medicine, is a medical system that was developed in Germany more than 200 years ago. It’s based on two unconventional theories:
“Like cures like”—the notion that a disease can be cured by a substance that produces similar symptoms in healthy people 
“Law of minimum dose”—the notion that the lower the dose of the medication, the greater its effectiveness. Many homeopathic products are so diluted that no molecules of the original substance remain.

What I'm saying is this.  IF Poison/"Vitamin A" (carotenoids and/or retinoids) in what are considered "normal" amounts if one is EATING them as FOODS--medium/strong/large/very strong in the quotes above--are poisonous, then we should see them show up commonly as homeopathic remedies.

Here's a great example of using a known poison, arsenic, prepared homeopathically to remedy the damage of actual arsenic toxicity!

Homeopathy reduces arsenic poisoning in mice

A homeopathic remedy based on arsenic oxide has shown “highly promising results” in mice poisoned with arsenic, say Indian scientists.

The homeopathic antidote reduced the liver toxicity induced by arsenic in mice, where distilled water did nothing, and alcohol actually exacerbated the poison’s effects.
The researchers took groups of five mice either with or without arsenic poisoning and drop fed them Arsenicum Album, distilled water, or alcohol that had been through the same preparation procedure as the homeopathic antidote.

Two different dilutions of the homeopathic remedy cut the levels of two liver enzymes – ALT and AST – which are indicators of liver toxicity and are boosted by arsenic poisoning. This positive effect occurred within 72 hours and liver lasted for up to 30 days, they report in their journal paper. Distilled water had no effect on either enzyme. And alcohol actually enhanced the activity of AST.

NOTE:  Mice are immune to placebo effect, and so are their liver enzymes. Sad I have to say that, but it needs to be done for those marinated in conventional homeopathic denial propaganda.

Some of you who are not educated in homeopathic theory may be lost here. That's OK, I've shown Poison/"Vitamin A" to be toxic in so many other ways, that this post is sort of just "icing on the cake". Those of you who are educated in it, hopefully you see where this is going, and it's not going to look good for Poison/"Vitamin A".

Let's see if homeopathy gives us a pattern showing that "animal" Poison/"Vitamin A", the retinoids, are toxic first.  If homeopathic companies are selling them as remedies, they must be wanted and be indicated for something:


  • Beta-Carotene (Provitamin A, β-Carotene, β,β-Carotene, Food Orange 5)- Beta-carotene, the main carotenoid in its purified and diluted form, is a homeopathic remedy.
  • Dioscorea (Wild Yam)
  • Calendula Officinalis (all bolded compounds are carotenoids):  "Calendula officinalis is commonly called the marigold. It is a staple topical remedy in homeopathic medicine. It is rich in quercetin, carotenoids, lutein, lycopene, rutin, ubiquinone, xanthophylls, and other anti-oxidants."
  • I'm not going to try to put every plant that is high in carotenoids here, you're welcome to look them up though.

It certainly is amazing how Poison/"Vitamin A" shows up SO MUCH in homeopathy, and based on homeopathic theory, it appears that Poison/"Vitamin A" in anything at and over "medium/moderate" doses (whatever that is for an individual), is a poison to the system.  The signs are everywhere, folks!
