Experience of a Homeopathic Mission to Cuba

Last January I had the opportunity to participate in a homeopathic mission to the Province of Matanzas-Cuba led by my colleague, Martine Jourde.

Supported by Homéopathes de Terre Sans Frontières (Homeopaths Without Borders), we started our journey with a group of homeopaths from Quebec.  The reason for this mission, like many others which have been done in the past, was to support and provide training in Primary Care and Immuno-prevention with Homeopathy to health professionals in Cuba. The training we gave was directed to health personnel including doctors, specialists, residents of traditional medicine , nurses and medical students.

 In the Province of Matanzas there is already a group of health professionals using several homeopathic protocols in different health programs at the provincial level;  and one of the objectives of  our trip was to give technical support and training in First Line Homeopathic Medicines (First Level Primary Care)  emphasizing homeo-prophylaxis and  Cancer protocols . 
Cuba has a rich experience using homeopathy in disease prevention and for this aspect, I refer the reader to investigate the results that have been achieved in Leptospirosis :

The reception of our knowledge by the medical and paramedical staff was fantastic. These colleagues, who are always open-minded and eager to learn, attended in great numbers the different informative sessions we gave through the eight days for which the mission lasted.

 It is a joy to find a country where the openness to homeopathy and the belief in Natural Medicine are like a cornerstone to support the health of the individuals.  It allowed us to give them Primary Care in Homeopathy in several levels of complexity!!  For instance, one of the most fruitful experiences I had was when Martine and I were both appointed to treat in an Oncologic Service (physicians specialists who were themselves suffering fromdifferent types of cancer). She with her very accurate Complex Approach and I with my orthodox single remedy and love for the repertorization aspect of case analysis didn’t have any problem working together synergistically to the welfare of our colleagues and patients !!
Likewise, I want to mention the support and knowledge that my colleague naturopath, Dr. Chantal Ann Dumas gave us during the mission as well as her fantastic lecture on Hormones, Anti-oxidants and cancer.
It would be good to continue to promote this type of experiences for the service of the community, but it is important to note the economic support required for such missions that involve such complex organization and logistics !!
