ALTERNATIVE MEDICINE (CAM) IN THE WORLD

Abstract

GROUNDS FOR RESEARCH IN BIOTRONICS
AND ITS POSSIBLE INTEGRATION INTO THE PUBLIC HEALTH CARE SYSTEM

List of Annexes


INCREASING SCIENTIFIC INTEREST IN COMPLEMENTARY AND ALTERNATIVE MEDICINE ABROAD

  • There are 112 CAM research centres in the EU, according to the CAMbrella final report (see below) from 2012. (1) CAM is an abbreviation for Complementary and Alternative Medicine.

  • Across the world outside the EU there are many CAM research centres as well, where complementary and alternative medicine is being increasingly investigated, including methods that use bioenergy (USA, Australia, India, Canada, Israel, etc.). (2)

  • Why should it not be possible to conduct biotronics research in the Czech Republic, when Traditional Chinese Medicine research is already permitted in the Czech-Chinese traditional medicine centre in Hradec Králové? Even the Chinese medicine approach encompasses energy, energy meridians etc.

  • The number of scientific randomized controlled studies in CAM is increasingly growing (since about 1990) and the number of scientific publications on CAM is growing too. (3)

  • The number of scientific journals dedicated to complementary and alternative medicine is increasingly growing as well as their citations in other scientific journals. This indicates a growing scientific interest in this form of medicine. According to Ulrich’s Global Serials Directory (http://ulrichsweb.serialssolutions.com) there were 358 active scientific journals categorized as CAM journals in 2013. (4)

  • Some esteemed scientists call for further and better research into CAM, e.g. George Lewith (professor of health research at the University of Southampton). (5)

  • CAM is lectured in Medical Faculties in many countries worldwide. According to a survey published in 2006, CAM education is available in 42 % of medical faculties in the EU15 countries and in 20 % of faculties in the ‘new’ EU countries. Professorial chairs of CAM and/or Integrative Medicine exist in France (Nantes), Germany (Berlin, Duisburg/Essen, Rostock, Munich), Hungary (Pécs), Italy (Firenze and Bologna), Norway (Tromsø), Sweden (Stockholm), Switzerland (Bern) and the United Kingdom (Exeter, Sheffield, Southampton, Thames Valley). (6) Alternative medicine is taught in more than 50 per cent of US medical schools (2015). (18-17)

  • Healers in our country are subject to aggressive and often untrue attacks.


COMPARISON OF EFFECTIVENESS BETWEEN CAM AND MEDICINE IN GENERAL

  • The 2005 analysis of 145 Cochrane reviews of randomized controlled trials in the field of CAM, has been compared with a similar 2007 analysis of 1,016 reviews of RCTs in ‘medicine in general’. The analysis revealed that the effectiveness of CAM is only a few percent lower than medicine in general. In 37.2 % CAM has a positive or possible positive effect while medicine in general has 44.4 %. CAM is likely to be harmful in 0.69 % cases while medicine is likely to be harmful in 7 %. (7)


  • (Possible) positive effectLikely to have no effectLikely to be harmfulInsufficient evidence
    CAM37,2 % !4,8 %0,69 % !56,6 %
    Medicine in general44,4 %0,98 %7 %47,8 %


  • Other research studies have shown that three quarters of chronically ill patients undergoing CAM treatment described themselves as ‘moderately better’ or ‘much better’.
    (Source: “CAM 2020 – The contribution of Complementary and Alternative Medicine to sustainable healthcare in Europe“, EUROCAM – the largest European association uniting umbrella organizations of doctors and non-medical practitioners with an interest in CAM.) (7)


85 % OF CZECH CITIZENS WOULD WELCOME RECOGNITION OF ALTERNATIVE MEDICINE

  • 85 percent of Czech citizens would like to see some alternative medicine methods recognized as an official complement to the conventional treatment and covered by insurance. The figures have been revealed by the STEM / MARK agency survey from 2014. (8)


WHO – WORLD HEALTH ORGANIZATION

  • The World Health Organization (WHO) recommends that all the WHO member states worldwide conduct more research in complementary and alternative medicine and its integration into national health care systems.
    WHO also seeks to contribute to higher quality and safety of complementary and alternative medicine methods, to their increased availability and improved legislation. In support of this, a document titled WHO Traditional Medicine Strategy 2014 – 2023 has been issued. (9)


EU – EUROPEAN UNION

  • CAMBRELLA – CAMbrella was a European research network for complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) that conducted a research programme into the situation of CAM in Europe between 2010 and 2012. The project was funded by the European Commission. The group consisted of 16 partner institutions from 12 European countries. The research project concludes in encouraging individual EU member states to carry out more CAM research, due to the current research being insufficient, and to integrate CAM within the health care system of each country. (10)

  • Some other CAMbrella conclusions:
    1) „Studies indicate that citizens wish CAM to be available as part of their options for health care, for example in hospital and general practice care.“
    2)
    „Scientific bias hampers the free exchange of ideas, concepts, treatment techniques and comparison of clinical outcomes.“
    3) „Different models of CAM integration into routine care programmes should be explored and evaluated.“
    4) „CAM provision in the EU27+12 is maintained by more than 150,000 registered medical doctors (MDs) with additional CAM certification and more than 180,000 registered and certified non-medical CAM practitioners.
    This suggests up to 65 CAM providers (35 nonmedical practitioners and 30 physicians) per 100,000 inhabitants, compared to the EU figures of 95 general medical practitioners per 100,000 inhabitants.“
    5) „State funded research based knowledge is mainly available for Denmark, Germany, Norway, Switzerland, and the UK. This calls for more research in this field throughout the EU and associated countries.“

  • Based on CAMbrella, a research roadmap for CAM by 2020 has been subsequently developed. (11)

  • „Alternative treatments are used by 100 million people in Europe but there is no common approach to their regulation in the EU. … While the United States, China, Australia and India have a clear, government-funded and strategic approach to CAM research, this is not the case within the EU.“ (George Lewith – professor of health research at the University of Southampton, Why we need to research the use of complementary medicine, British journal The Guardian, 29. 11. 2012.) (5)

  • In 1997 the European Parliament adopted a resolution on “non-conventional medicine” A4-0075/97. No action has been taken in relation to this since then. (12) Point 4 of the Resolution states that:
    „The European Parliament calls on the Council after completion of the preliminary work referred to in paragraph 2 above to encourage the development of research programmes in the field of non-conventional medicines covering the individual and holistic approach, the preventive role and the specific characteristics of the non-conventional medical disciplines.“

  • Parliamentary Assembly of Council of Europe (is not an official EU institution, however the Czech Republic is a member state of the Council of Europe) adopted Resolution 1206 (1999) - A European approach to non-conventional medicines, inviting the member states to support research into CAM. (13)
    „Alternative, complementary and nonconventional forms of medicine are growing in importance in Europe and throughout the world.“
    „The Assembly therefore calls on member states to promote official recognition of these forms of medicine in medical faculties and to encourage hospitals to use them.“
    „The Assembly calls on the member states to support and speed up the comparative studies and research programmes currently under way in the European Union and to disseminate the findings widely.“
    „The various forms of medicine should not compete with one another: it is possible for them to exist side by side and complement one another.“

  • In the European Parliament (the informal MEPs Interest Group for CAM) but also in the European Commission (EU Health Policy Forum EUHPF), various meetings of CAM organizations with EU policy makers are held - the interest in CAM is growing as well as the use of CAM for a healthier Europe is debated more often. It is concluded that the patients will get the maximum benefit from the cooperation of conventional medicine with alternative and complementary medicine, using the best of both approaches, and that there is a need for better CAM research in terms of effectiveness, safety as well as economics. See articles:
    1) Cancer and the contribution of CAM (2012), (14)
    2) Cheaper public health care while using CAM (2013), (14)
    3) EU-wide endeavours to address the cancer problem in an efficient and consistent manner with the use of CAM (2015), (14)
    4) Conclusions from the conference on CAM held in the European Parliament on 9 October 2012 and a Call for Action by CAM associations of patients, practitioners and doctors, calling on the European Commission, European Parliament and EU member states. (15)

  • NATO is increasingly utilising CAM in military health care systems, mainly due to the lower costs, better effectiveness in some health conditions and lower side-effects (published in the Medical Acupuncture journal). (16)


SOME OF THE SUCCESSFUL RESEARCH INTO SPIRITUAL HEALING

  • Some of the scientific research into spiritual healing demonstrates a non-negligible positive effect for patients. A lot of this research concludes in drawing attention to the need for more and better research. A selection of 23 successful research studies that were published in peer-reviewed scientific journals is enclosed in the annex. (17) For instance, by the year 2000, 57 % randomized control trials revealed a positive effect of spiritual healing. 23 studies were evaluated, involving 2,774 patients.


BOTH DOCTORS AND PATIENTS ARE INCREASINGLY INTERESTED IN COMPLEMENTARY AND ALTERNATIVE MEDICINE

  • More than 42 % of responding hospitals in 2010 indicated they offer one or more CAM therapies, up from 37 % in 2007, 26 % in 2005 and 7.7 % in 1999 (first time asked). (18-1)

  • 57 highly esteemed academic medical centres (amounting to 20 % of all US academic medical centres) utilise integrative medicine (combination of conventional medicine and CAM). Among them are Harvard Medical School, Yale University, Stanford University, Mayo Clinic, Johns Hopkins University, etc. (18-2)

  • The total visits to CAM providers (629 million) exceeded the total number of visits to all primary care physicians (386 million) in the United States in 1997. (18-3)

  • Treatment methods using life energy are increasingly utilised in hospitals and other medical facilities. For example, in 2007 15% of U.S. hospitals (over 800) offered Reiki as a regular part of patient services. (18-4, 18-5) „Healing Touch“ is offered in 23 U.S. hospitals. (18-3)

  • In total, there are about 47 integrated oncology centres in Europe where conventional medicine and CAM are used in parallel. (18-6) About 64 % of hospitals in Norway offer CAM. (18-7) The Paris hospitals have adopted a strategic plan to include, evaluate and integrate CAM in their services. (18-8)

  • Cooperation between physicians and healers is common in some countries (e.g. UK in Europe). (18-9)

  • The pilot project involving cooperation between physicians and CAM physicians was implemented in Pitigliano Hospital, Tuscany Region, Italy. It was concluded that the cooperation works and patients are very satisfied. CAM is also offered at about 100 outpatient clinics in Tuscany. (18-10)

  • 60 % of Family Physicians in Germany use CAM, 49 % have a positive CAM attitude and 12 % have a negative CAM attitude. (18-11) The annexed table (18-12) shows a large increase in the number of physicians with CAM qualifications and „Heilpraktiker“ in Germany.

  • According to WHO (as of 2005), more than 80 % of people in Africa use CAM, 48 % in Australia, 70 % in Canada, 42 % in USA, 38 % in Belgium and 75% in France. According to data from 2013, it is up to 50 % of people in USA. (18-13) The CAM use in Europe (as of 2005) occurs at a rate of around 30-40 % on average. (18-15)

  • According to a multinational study, 99 % of doctors have recommended natural remedies for children and 76 % of doctors have also recommended homeopathic medicine for a child, particularly because of a lower risk of side effects compared to conventional medications. (18-14)

  • The annexed table shows successes of traditional medicine (TM) integration into the health care systems in African countries between 2001 and 2012, based on the WHO strategy. The number of African countries with a developed national TM policy reached 8 in the year 2000 and in 2012 the number reached 40 countries. (18-16)

  • Patients who used CAM following a cancer diagnosis reported higher levels of benefit finding than those who did not. Individuals using energy healing and healing arts reported significantly more benefit than nonusers. Energy healing was more effective than other forms of CAM. (18-19)

  • Integrative medicine is, for instance, offered in The Royal London Hospital for Integrated Medicine (RLHIM) which is the Europe’s largest public sector centre for integrated medicine. (18-20)

  • Switzerland is going to recognise complementary therapies as legitimate medicine by May 2017. These therapies will be reimbursed by health insurance companies. These are homeopathy, anthroposophic medicine, herbal medicine and traditional Chinese medicine. Acupuncture has already been recognized. (18-22)

  • Three-quarters of students in U.S. medical schools agree that CAM integration into the conventional Western medicine would be beneficial. (18-23)

  • Czech pharmacists and pharmacy technicians have positive attitudes about CAM. 95 % percent recommended CAM; over 90 % perceived CAM as effective and safe. (2014) (18-24)


EVIDENCE ON THE EFFECTIVENESS OF BIOTRONICS

  • RESEARCH INTO BIOTRONICS IN THE VIMPERK HOSPITAL IN 1982 - the research reports show positive effects of biotronics, even though the project was discontinued midway through. (19)

  • OTHER EVIDENCE – Two films with testimonies by Mrs. Vernerová and Mrs. Heldová about their recovery from cancer with the help of biotronics, and a further testimony in the film titled Utajovaný léčitel [Hidden Healer]. (20) Evidence on treatments of cancer and other diseases, and recommendations from the book titled Život přinašeče [The Life of a Bringer].. There is also an available testimonial from 1973 released by Jaroslav Kožešník, the president of the Czechoslovak Academy of Sciences, confirming that Mr. Zezulka is involved in a new branch of science – bioenergotherapy - and that it is necessary to create appropriate working conditions for his further research activities. All information can be found on www.dub.cz. (21)

  • EXPERIENCE WITH BIOTRONICS – The feedback on biotronics is published on the website www.dub.cz, under the link EXPERIENCE WITH BIOTRONICS. Some experiences are even supported by medical reports. There are overall 122 responses (as of June 2016). (22) Furthermore, we have also enclosed the feedback on the Aquarius Bell concerts that refers to health improvements (19 responses). (23)


OTHER REASONS

  • PETITION FOR SUPPORT OF BIOTRONICS – 33.305 signatures as of 23 July 2016. (24)

  • Mr. Zezulka had much earlier presented some insights that were being rejected for a long time, but were eventually recognized by science. Therefore, we should pay more attention to whether his other ideas happen to be also true. The annex lists some of the J.Z.’s discoveries that were recognized by science. (25) Very often in the history of science it has turned out that new discoveries were ridiculed and attempts were made to dismiss them, until they finally became recognized, sometimes only after many years had passed. (26) In the early days of medicine, its effectiveness also used to be low before it developed; let’s therefore give time and opportunity to new disciplines until their effectiveness increases.

  • Biotronics is always free of charge, thus it does not capitalize on the misfortune of others. It does not take a patient away from a doctor, it hopes for future cooperation with doctors and for the integration of biotronics into the health care system.

  • One of the recommendations from the statement on Healing Practices in Oncology, released and approved by the Czech Medical Chamber Scientific Council on 2 February 2012, states that: „The attitude towards healers (non-medical) should not be a priori dismissive. Provided the healer is cooperating with the doctor, both his/her advice and the natural medicine remedies given can positively contribute to the patient’s overall condition and quality of life.“ (27-1)

  • Open access to „traditional“ medicine does not exclude the efforts in the scientific evaluation of its effectiveness. 30% to 40% of people in developed countries use alternative forms of medicine. That indicates the lack of confidence in existing scientific medicine as well as the desire to find more satisfactory methods of treatment and care, than those provided by the prevailing Western healthcare models. This should be a signal for us to pay attention to what alternative medicine is offering its patients.“ (časopis Medicínská etika & Bioetika, 1997, Cíle medicíny: Hledání nových priorit, Závěrečná zpráva mezinárodního multicentrického výzkumného projektu. [Journal Medicínská etika & Bioetika, 1997, Objectives of Medicine: Finding new priorities, International Multicentre Research Project Final Report.]) (27-2)

  • CAM is cheaper and safer; many other reasons for the use of CAM are described in the document CAM2020 - The contribution of Complementary and Alternative Medicine to sustainable healthcare in Europe by EUROCAM, the largest EU association that brings together medical and non-medical CAM organizations. It represents a CAM single voice for communication with EU. CAM is cheaper: „The use of CAM modalities may therefore offer significant cost savings to public health systems and to the economy more widely. Several research studies have demonstrated that patients who were treated with various CAM modalities used fewer medications, had better health, fewer days off sick, and fewer visits to medical specialists than patients of conventional physicians.“ One of the research studies reports health care cost savings of up to 30%.. CAM is safer: „CAM is generally considered safe and this is a major reason for its popularity. Individual risk levels may however vary from one CAM therapy to another but adverse effects noted in research literature are rarely of a serious nature.“ (28-1,2,3,4,5) Some other benefits which encourage people to use CAM are annexed. (18-21) CAM could likely help in the area of antimicrobial resistance. (29)

  • CZECH MEDICINE IS WILLING TO COOPERATE WITH HEALERS – anchor of the Medialogy show: „Can the various so-called alternative procedures and their supporters collaborate with conventional science and medicine? Are people, who are involved in those areas, somehow ready to communicate with one another? Since no healer is present here, let me ask you whether doctors and conventional Western medicine are able to do so?”
    MUDr. Radkin Honzák, CSc., Psychiatrist and Educator, Institute of General Medicine in the First Faculty of Medicine, Charles University: „Sure.“
    Prof. MUDr. Aleksi Šedo, DrSc, Dean of the First Faculty of Medicine, Charles University: „So, as with anything, reasonable people can undoubtedly come to an agreement.“
    Prof. MUDr. Roman Prymula, CSc., Ph.D., a former director of the University Hospital in Hradec Králové: „I think that we should perhaps re-review these methods which are offered here as alternatives and which we think could complement those used in Western medicine. So in this case I would enter into a dialogue. At the same time, there are methods which really do not make sense to discuss, as we cannot accept them.“ (Medialogy – Alternativní medicína v Čechách [Alternative Medicine in the Czech Republic], 10 November 2015, from 1:23:40, www.lf1.cuni.cz/medialogy)

  • The doctors say they do not have much time to talk to the patients about their sufferings enough, and therefore the patients seek out a healer who gives them more time. However, if medicine officially cooperated with healers, the healers could assist the doctors in doing this and the patients would be helped more.

  • Opinion of biotronics on the cause of cancer and its treatment. Mr. Zezulka discovered a method of cancer treatment, he also explained the causes of tumour formation and through practical results he proved this treatment method. (30)

  • More information on what biotronics is about. (31)

  • Responses to the most common objections of skeptics. (32)

  • Do we want to keep repeating the same scientific mistakes? Remembering some scientific mistakes in history which closely resemble today’s comments on biotronics. (26)

  • Opinion of biotronics on the causes and treatments of some diseases. You yourself decide whether the biotronics’ opinions on various diseases could bring something beneficial to public health care and science. (33)

  • Nikola Tesla: „The day science begins to study non-physical phenomena, it will make more progress in one decade than in all the previous centuries of its existence.“ (34)

  • Murphy’s law: „When a distinguished but elderly scientist states that something is possible, he is almost certainly right. When he states that something is impossible, he is very probably wrong.“ (35)
