Homoeopathy for health in Africa is a project aimed at bringing relief to HIV/AIDS patients in Tanzania, investigating the ‘Genus Epidemicus of AIDS’, establishing a research program and spreading the homoeopathy throughout Tanzania and Africa. The goal of homoeopathic treatment is to stimulate healing by using natural substances. Homoeopathy is non-toxic, effective, low cost, and has minimal side effects. Homoeopathic medicine can be used safely alongside conventional therapies, such as anti-retroviral (ARV) medicines. Homoeopathy is useful in reducing the debilitating symptoms of ARV therapy and early studies show promising results in elevating CD4 counts. It is important to state that homoeopathy is legal and endorsed by the Tanzanian Government, under the ‘The Traditional and Alternative Medicines Act, 2002’. I have been in Tanzania since November 2008. Since then I have accomplished the following: 1. I have worked in the ‘Natural Therapies Centre’ in Dar Es Salaam. The clinic director is Tanzanian homoeopath Sigsbert Rwegasira. Together we have seen over 100 AIDs patients. 2. I have established a clinic in a rural village in North Tanzania. In this clinic I have been treating members of an ‘AIDS group’, mainly widows. Of the 90 patients treated in Uru North, a small village in North Tanzania, most are taking ARVs and are seeking relief of common symptoms of AIDS as well as symptoms related to the side effects of medications. The majority of patients have reported impressive improvements in their specific symptoms, appetite levels and overall energy. They are happy with the results of their treatment and many and more AIDS patients are coming to the clinic. 3. We have opened a second clinic in the village of Rao, near Moshi. Camilla Sherr has started working there, and Jeremy is joining her once a week. We have treated over 40 patients. 4. I have opened a clinic with the ‘Kilimanjaro District AIDS Centre’. This clinic has unlimited AIDS patients and is very well staffed. They will be assessing the treatment formally with all necessary data collection including CD4, viral load and preliminary forms. This clinic specialises in ‘outreach patients’ meaning visiting raptients that are too sick to travel in rural areas. It also puts a great emphasis on AIDS orphans who we will be treating. 5. I have initiated a cooperative farming project for the HIV/AIDS groups in Uru North to improve nutrition, generate income for patients and encourage self-reliance. The project has donated start up money to purchase seeds, poultry and goats. The sustainable farm will be operated by the HIV/AIDS groups with supervision from Stephen Ojwang, Community Development Coordinator. Our aim is to establish similar projects in the region. 6. I have treated homeless street dwellers in Dar Es Salaam for ailments ranging from Malaria to Syphilis and drug addiction. 7. I have joined forces with a local NGO ‘Tredo’ dedicated to helping AIDS patients in rural Tanzania through education, self sustainable food projects and micro enterprise. I have introduced them to homoeopathy which they have keenly adopted. They are now supporting our project and have helped open the Rao clinic. We are initiating several educational and food programs together, as well as a local AIDS centre. 8. I have assisted Sigsbert with establishing the School project and founding a non profit company and have established a further clinic at the school site. 9. I have made contact with several local homoeopaths who were working in Isolation, and have begun organising a clinic network in Northern Tanzania. 10. I have established contact with several hospitals and universities with the purpose of propagating homoeopathy and research. 11. I have organised a team of three regional coordinators and three translators. 12. I have begun accepting visiting homoeopaths for sitting-in tuition and for long term prescribing locally. 13. I have made contact with the village and District Council and gained their support for the project. 14. I have lectured to Doctors and nurses at the local hospital. 15. I have established contact with other homoeopathic projects in Kenya, Ghana, ., Congo and Botswana 16. I have written a blog so as to inform and inspire our community and others with what is homoeopathic treatment can achieve. 17. I have begun the research into the Genus remedies and identified several remedies. 18. I have co-authored a new computer program to organise the project. 19. I have moved my family to Tanzania in order to be able to attend the project full time and for a longer period. I have realised this will be necessary to achieve the projects aims. This project has helped many people who desperately need a helping hand and who really appreciate what homoeopathy has done for them. I know now more then ever that this project is a necessity. Any help is appreciated. See www.dynamis.edu Yours faithfully Jeremy Sherr F.S. Hom
