3.15pm – 4.00pm – Dr Robert Verkerk – Shifting Paradigms in Research Outcomes
“There are more things in Heaven and Earth, Horatio,
than are dreamt of in your philosophy.”
While lifespans of humans have extended slightly in recent decades, there has been a dramatic rise in non-communicable, chronic diseases as well as mental health, auto-immune and non-specific conditions affecting vitality and quality of life.
Over the last century, the Western medical model – one reliant heavily on pharmaceutical drugs and surgery, has come to the fore as a means of turning the tide on these spiralling diseases and conditions. Unfortunately, as many of us know, there is no one therapy or technique that answers all the questions for our health needs.
From personal experience despite having had an extensive previous clinical NHS background, I managed to recover from a seriously debilitating illness more than 30 years ago against the odds at the time. As a result, I have remained open and receptive to a diverse range of non-conventional treatment modalities. I am also cognisant that the clinical evidence of effectiveness as in my own case does not always align with the medical establishment’s gold standard measurement of high-quality randomised controlled trials.
In science and medicine, we have to respect not only the views of the supporters but also those expressed by the critics, without this process any evidence towards progress would be unfair and futile. Accordingly, in recent years I have reflected on the surprisingly intense and relentless criticism attacks on homeopathy, almost bordering on obsessional which have been amongst the most vociferous ever witnessed in a therapeutic modality, and more importantly without any regard for patient choice, especially those that wish to avail themselves of continued NHS Homeopathic treatment.
One of the primary reasons for the vigour of the attacks may well be the difficulty in understanding the various mechanistic theories that have over the years attempted to explain how homeopathy works in practice, not just with humans but also in veterinary care. For many scientists and clinicians, this has understandably presented huge challenges to the ethos of their own particular academic training and beliefs. However all of us have to accept the world moves on, and with it our approach to the needs and outcomes in the context of a rapidly changing future global healthcare system.
It is for this reason that I have been inspired, at an incredibly exciting time in the development — and fusion — of different strands of medical thought, to organise what I believe is likely to be considered an historic seminar. Especially as increasingly more and more scientists are directing a core focus on water and its intimate association with life. We will hear presentations by an extraordinary array of international experts, including by two Nobel laureates, that will challenge the underlying conceptual framework of chemistry and modern medical science. As importantly, solutions that necessitate disruption of the existing status quo within the failing Western medical model, will be presented.
My sincere wish is that the events in London this July will initiate or at least consider a process that challenges scientific belief for the better, the way we go about meeting the escalating complex health needs of individuals in an increasingly complicated society, not just for those with affluence, but more importantly for the needy in our global society.
It is my hope that the seminar and what follows will be a ground-breaking success for those of us working in the realms of non-standard medicine, but more especially for our trusting patients throughout the world, that their hope will not be diminished further in their attempts to recover complete health with the treatment modality of their own choice.
