Homeopathic Hospitals

A recently published book, «Sane Asylums: The Success of Homeopathy Before Psychiatry Lost its Mind», excavates a closeted history of homeopathic psychiatric hospitals in the United States from the post-Civil War era into the 1930s, when it was systematically censored by the forces of ‹Rockefeller Medicine›.

The book tells the tale of the 100 homeopathic hospitals and 22 homeopathic medical schools in the United States and the great success of their brilliant homeopathic doctors, including rapid and effective treatment of the Spanish Flu of 1918. All this is presented by an author who is not only a homeopath himself, but who also has authoritative credentials: Jerry Kantor is an acupuncturist and member of the Anaesthesiology Department at Harvard Medical School. Kantor presented the scientific homeopathic studies cited in the book as part of a legal defense of a homeopathic manufacturer in 2015, convincing the court to dismiss all charges.

The book comes at a time when psychiatry and mental health are experiencing a major crisis. The number of mentally ill people classified as ‹disabled› in the United States has tripled in the last 20 years, and the side effects of the medications used to treat these people have increased. This book tells the story of successful, established psychiatric treatment centered on humane and homeopathic care – it’s not just about a tactical solution to conform to a materialistically dominated standard. The rehabilitation of the history of homeopathy has the potential to be a cure for a materialistic worldview and to open up new possibilities of being human.
