In this world everything is in pairs : male-female, day-night, sun-moon, sweet-bitter, good-evil. Likewise, the inner environment and external environment are related.
In natural medicine, we talk of five elements, namely, Earth, Water, Air, Light and Ether (Ozone), of which our bodies as also the whole universe is made of. There is approximately 70% water in our bodies, Green planet Earth too has 70% water - what we call seas, oceans, rivers, lakes, ponds, ground water, etc.
When the earth is plundered and destroyed by over use of fertilisers, food chain is contaminated and since we take such contaminated food, drink unclean water and top that with soft and hard drinks and drugs, prescription and non-prescription, we have what is known as polluted inner environment. Diseases can be classified into two : psychosomatic and somatopsychic. When we become non compos mentis (unsound mind) due to wrong intake, our solutions too are wonky; and if they be designed with only business and profits in mind, the end-result is bound to be disastrous as we see today in this WTO-GATT regime, where a private bank called World Bank rules from behind and Monsanto takes even our Supreme Court to ride.
In natural medicine we also talk of four principles: (a) Healing is within. (b) There is inner environment. (c) Treatment should not be worse than the disease, and (d) Totality of disease.
Hence, we treat/cure a patient in Holistic manner, that is, his/her body, mind and spirit. We are NOT like modern medicine experts, "who know more and more of less and less". I call those MDs, "one-organ, one-disease" experts.
All of us who have gathered here are concerned about External Pollution like water pollution, air pollution, noise pollution, deadly industrial effluents, fertilisers which make our earth fallow, mounting garbage and noxious gases emanating therefrom, the plastic menace, the deadly fire crackers and colossal waste of crores during Diwali, the choked drainage, weapons of mass destruction, et al. We need to be concerned about Inner Pollution, too, because both are inter-related.
Let me list some of the deadly things that we ingest and destroy our health by conspicuous consumption and how it affects us all willy-nilly.
Discussing the UP bomb attacks, the newspapers on 24 Nov 07 said, "sugar, coffee, aluminium, potassium permanganate, and boiled cow urine - these are some of the things you can make bombs with". If you can make "cottage bombs" with these readily available items, you can well be sure what adverse effect your food and thoughts can have on you and consequently on the society and the world.
Let us now look at how our thoughts, the images that we see, the gory films and the mind-bending messages that we get on the boob tube, pornography and decadent religions pollute our minds. Anger, frustration, jealousies, insecurities, incompetence, stress, paedophilia, unnatural sex, violence and one mentally retarded leader can well press the nuclear button destroying our mother earth. Because, according to GIGO principle, garbage that goes in is the garbage that comes out. This cumulative inner garbage is the danger that is going to swallow us all and destroy our Green Planet Earth.
What is the solution you may ask. And I will not be a good Holistic Healer if I do not show you the way out.
So, absolutely NO-NO to the Aspartame, Vaccinations, Antibiotics, Carcinogens, ARVs, narcotic and psychotropic substances, viagra type of stimulants.
Reduce junk food, consumption of meat and five white products: milk, sugar, salt, maida and white rice. Instead of white rice you can have parboiled rice, instead of sugar you can have brown sugar, jaggery, honey. Instead of milk of other animals (in God's realm human being is the only animal that drinks milk even when he has grown up and that too of other species) you may have lassi, coconut water, rice milk, or soya milk.
Like Moses gave Ten Commandments to the World (and they are more or less the same in all religions), I give the activists and other well-motivated persons gathered here, ten commandments of health, following which you can live to be healthy hundred without ills, pills and doctor's bills.
1.. Eat twice a day only.
2.. Drink minimum 8 glasses of water.
3.. Meditate twice a day.
4.. Exercise for minimum 15 minutes daily.
5.. Fast once a week.
6.. Do not smoke, or take drugs, or drink alcohol.
7.. Do not gamble or cheat.
8.. Sex is not bad.
9.. Sleep well.
10. Go on Smiling.
In conclusion: A young couple named their first born NC, second arrival MC, and the third child ABC. They explained: First child was born out of Natural Curiosity. The second was planned by Mutual Consent. The third was Absolute Bloody Carelessness. Whatever you may do in life, do not become careless like that couple.
DR. LEO REBELLO'S 10 COMMANDMENTS TO CONSERVE WATER
1.. Have bucket baths (25 litres) instead of shower bath (about 250 litres of water).
2.. Dispense tub baths (300 litres of water wasted). 25 to 30 litres water is enough for proper bathing.
3.. Tell your Kamwali Bai (house help) to keep the taps closed while she is soaping, brushing clothes or scraping utensils.
4.. Use half flush after urination.
5.. Do not keep the tap running while brushing your teeth or soaping your hands.
6.. Do not keep water running while shaving -- this is what mostly people do. It has been estimated that about 30 litres of water goes waste in shaving exercise. Instead, the village practice of dipping your razor or shaving brush in the mugful of water is better.
7.. Sponge old people and babies rather than bathing them. That saves water, old skin is removed, improves circulation and warmth.
8.. Repair the leaking taps immediately. Notify to authorities the tampered water pipes, water theft, etc.
9.. Reduce the use of detergents which mix in ground water.
10. Do NOT allow privatisation of water on any count. Water is free, air is free, sunlight is free, rain is free. These are God's gifts to us and no business minded people can profit on them.
Water is more precious than oil and the next world war will be fought on Water. From Somalia water mafia was thrown out. Incidentally, bottled water is dead water since it leads to plastic contamination.
It has been estimated: (a) That, the cost of women fetching water in India equals to a national loss of income of Rs.1000 crores. (b) That, nearly two million children die each year from diarrhea, which is almost 5000 deaths per day. (c) That, at any given time, half of the world's hospital beds are occupied by patients suffering from water-related diseases. (d) That, the poor people living in the slums often pay 5 to 10 times more for per litre of water than wealthy people living in the same city. Will this kind of social imbalance sustain?
Conserve Water. Water is Life.
A candid report by Dr. Leo Rebello, President, AIDS Alternativa International
XVI International AIDS Conference held in Toronto drew 24,000 participants (official figures) from all over the world. The Prime Minister of Canada did not show up to inaugurate. Consequently, Dr. Mark Wainberg (co-chair of the conference) admonished the PM in very strong words to play to the gallery, and the next day, having realised that his knighthood may be taken away or his professorship may go, apologised for speaking under stress! This loud-mouth thinks lemons or vitamins are not good for health and Diet and Nutrition has no role to play in AIDS treatment (contrary to World Health Assembly's resolution (WHA59.11) passed in May 2006 that Diet and Nutrition in AIDS should be promoted).
Wainberg vainly thinks as long as ARVs are taken, persons living with AIDS can live for ever! This fellow who talks ad nauseam of evidence based medicine, when confronted with hard evidence against ARVs becomes very aggressive. Dr. Helene Gayle, another co-chair, as compared to Wainberg is a subtle manipulator. Now that her term of International AIDS Society is over, she has taken charge as the President and CEO of CARE, USA.
Apart from these two, the usual caboodle consisting of Mr. Bill Clinton (who charges half a million dollars per lecture), Mrs. Melinda and Mr. Bill Gates (who pay to speak), Dr. Peter Piot of UNAIDS (the politician who knows how to swim in shark infested waters), Actor Richard Gere was present, along with health ministers of several countries, including Dr. Ambumani Ramadoss of India. Actress Shabana Azmi was replaced by Actresses Sharmila Tagore and Nafisa Ali for good effect. Mr. Nelson Mandela, a permanent fixture at AIDS Conferences, surprisingly was missing this time. Maybe, he realised that he was being used and Mr. Thabo Mbeiki was right after all.
The Canada AIDS conference was dull and drab. The AIDS conference organisers (a front put up by the Pharma MNCs) have not given anything beyond ARVs, Condoms and Microbicides in last 25 years. Tell them about natural microbicides consisting of curds, turmeric or neem and they gawk at you. Even a trained parrot will have better vocabulary than these morons.
The next International AIDS Conference will be held in Mexico, in 2008. I reproduce below a letter sent to Dr. Pedro Cahn, the Co-Chair of 2008 AIDS Conference, whom I met in Toronto and gave a copy of my book AIDS and Alternative Medicine. Till today (October 9) I have not received a reply from him. When you cannot answer keep mum is the management mantra, though in law silence means acceptance of guilt.

Subject: Re: Civil Society seats on the Conference Coordinating Committee of AIDS 2008
Dear Dr. Pedro Cahn:
The HDN-IAS protects the lie of HIV=AIDS=ARVs in a well-orchestrated blitzkrieg and keeps a total control (worse than Hitler) on what should be said and not said. Consequently, you will not invite Dr. Leo Rebello, Dr. Kary Mullis, Dr. Peter Duesberg, Dr. Serge Lang, Dr. Gordon Stewart, Dr. Joseph Sonnabend, Dr. Robert Willner, Dr.Tom Bethel and other such highly rated scientists to challenge your medical hegemony with balanced and democratic views.
You midgets do NOT even recognise that every coin has two sides and that the Traditional and Natural Medicine is being subscribed to by over 80% world population and that the apex body WHA (World Health Assembly) has passed many mandatory resolutions on it, which AIDS Alternativa International, the only organisation of its kind has been pursuing since 1989. Not selecting the only organisation of its kind to help in Mexico 2008 AIDS Conference, proves that you do NOT believe in a paradigm shift.
I would once again urge you to include AIDS Alternativa International on the Conference Coordination Committee to balance the discourse on HIV / AIDS. I would like to bring to the front the Alternative Vision, Alternative Approaches, Alternative Medicine, Alternative Solutions, in which the IAS has been lacking in last 25 years. When Dr. Peter Piot articulated that he could not see an answer to AIDS in next 25 years, what he suggested was that the scientific community was a lost bunch of people sans direction or openness. Let 2008 AIDS Conference to be held in Mexico show a new path in our fight against AIDS - From AIDS Scare to AIDS Care - a balanced path, which will usher in peace through sustainable development.
Unless, there is a paradigm shift on AIDS and you invite me to give a Keynote address on AIDS and Alternative Approaches, it will be proved that you are all manipulators. In last 25 years IAS has not discussed anything beyond ARVs, Bullshit science called the evidence based medicine, and Condoms (the new ABC). Freely prescribing carcinogenic ARVs to tiny tots like chocolates is fraught with danger, and your continuing on the said road to the graveyard will further prove that you all are either morons or murderers (working for eugenic agenda).
Notwithstanding our differences on principles, my very best wishes. Hope better counsel prevails and you listen to a sane voice. I look forward to hearing from you.
Dr. Leo Rebello President, AIDS Alternativa International, Bombay, India
I agree that my language is harsh. But aren't these the very people who give Electro Convulsive (shock) Treatment, to others? So, what is wrong if I give them the dose/taste of their own medicine, especially since they manipulate and play with the lives of millions of people?
In Toronto, at the XVI International AIDS Conference, I conducted a half-day Skills Building Workshop on Diet and Nutrition for AIDS. 210 persons attended. KLM deliberately "lost" my bag containing 100 odd AIDS and Alternative Medicine books and delivered the same to me after the workshop was over. I consider that as sabotage and have since served a notice on them for a million dollar in damages.
From Toronto, I flew to Vancouver (delivered 2 lectures there), sailed in a ship, flew to Montreal and visited Cornwall/Ottawa. In Cornwall, my speech at the Pakistani annual get-together was much appreciated by 2 Canadian MPs and Cornwall Mayor, who shared the dais with me, and over 200 Pakistanis residing in Cornwall. I also visited the world famous Niagara falls and delivered a few more lectures in Mississauga, before flying to Europe.
In Europe, I visited the following countries / cities: (a) The Netherlands - Amsterdam and Rotterdam. (b) Germany - Berlin and Munich. (c) Belgium - Antwerp, Brussels, Charleroi, Namur and Waterloo, and returned to Bombay on Sept. 9, 2006.
Hold on, so that you get the correct picture of AIDS, I have selected for you some of my quotes from 2000 till date to make this report foolproof.
"Lord Jesus Christ was crucified only once. But AIDS patients are killed thrice over: (a) By disease, by scare, by ostracism; (b) By toxic chemicals; (c) By the frightening costs of AIDS medicines. Nobody talks of age-old Alternative Medicine. There is more Aids Scare than Aids Care". Dr. Leo Rebello
During the Traditional Healers March, Durban, 2000 - I was one of the organisers of the said March undertaken during the XIII International AIDS Conference.
"Traditional systems of medicine remain the major source of health care for more than two thirds of the world's population, according to the World Health Organisation (WHO Report 1982). Healing concerns change from illness to health. Traditional systems, which are cheaper, safer, faster, more reliable, can be a vehicle for social, political and economic liberation.
"The concept of 'renewed tradition' refers to the use of respected principles of the past, forging new guidelines for action in terms of contemporary needs. Healing is a shared resource, a right for the ill to request and a responsibility for healers (and state) to deliver. Therefore, will the World Leaders wake up and stop this obdurate obstinacy and medical hegemony unleashed by proponents of modern medicine and dictated by transnational pharmaceutical lobby, whose only concern remains profits?
"May it be noted that over the years, with the onset of modern medicine more people have died due to drugs than the war casualties, pestilence or malnutrition deaths put together. This is unnecessary and has to stop. Let us bring some humanism in medicine. Let us understand the simple truth that Health Care is Self Care". Dr. Leo Rebello, Introductory comments at Community Indaba, XIII International AIDS Conference, Durban, July 2000.
"Think over. Many people who have AIDS don't have the money to buy food, let alone the medications they need. It is necessary that they do not suffer from malnutrition - which is why it is important that patients learn to rediscover their traditional meals and medicines. The 'standard' western diet is very high in toxins. Western medicines likewise are lethal. They do not heal, they kill. Western Lifestyle + Western Diet = Western Diseases. The solution to AIDS as also to safety of human beings, development, or world peace lies in oriental wisdom". Dr. Leo Rebello, Speaking at the UN-Habitat Conference in Kenya, in February 2001
"Latex industry: condom in simple word, even children know its use now. Boys and girls as young as 15, who were earlier afraid of sex, are now experimenting with condoms giving rise to condom ethics, condom culture, condom civilisation, condom protection, all of which is as fragile as the condom itself. There are two types of condoms - male and female.The production, sale and use of female condoms is restricted. After the 'condom accidents' the ever-alert marketing men invented 'double hat' protection, that means using two condoms to be doubly sure! Simple logic you see: if one condom can protect 50% two give 100% protection!" Dr. Leo Rebello, A paragraph from the widely circulated Report on XIV International AIDS Conference, Barcelona, 2002.
"Indiscriminate use of ARVs to pregnant mothers is fraught with danger. If a cigarette smoking mother can deliver a 'blue baby', if an alcoholic mother can deliver a 'drunk child', if thalidomide can produce 'monster babies', you are unwittingly playing with the future generation, by demanding that the HIV positive mother be given ARVs compulsorily.
"AIDS is the consequence of a suppressed immune system, which has been subjected to repeated onslaughts by four factors that build up toxins and deficiencies in the body. These are: antibiotic abuse, recreational drug abuse, anal sex (which causes toxic shock to the receiving partner) and nutritional stress.
"Realization is also slowly but surely dawning that the damage caused by the stressed immune system could be reversed by good diet, yogic and other exercises, herbs available readily, acupuncture, homeopathy, proper rest, avoidance of alcohol, drugs, tobacco, proper hygiene, etc. In other words, a person is to be treated as a whole: body, mind and spirit". Dr. Leo Rebello, From the speech delivered in Dubai and Kuwait in 2002.
"AIDS is a false alarm. Let us not panic. It is not a dreaded disease as is made out to be. Ayurveda, Nature Cure, Yoga, Homeopathy and other alternative therapies hold tremendous promise in AIDS as also in so-called incurable diseases. Therefore, it is time to halt the wasteful expenditure in dead-end biomedical research and divert those funds to holistic healing modalities. Even if twenty-five per cent of the total outlay made towards biomedical research is given to alternative systems of medicine, the health graph of the world will show marked improvement. 'From Aids Scare to Aids Care', 'Aids No More', 'Health Care is Self Care', 'Humanism in Health' and 'Health, Peace and Plenty for All', should be the slogans of the New Millennium". Dr. Leo Rebello,From the Paper presented on AIDS and Alternative Medicine at the Medicina Alternativa Conference in Bombay, 2004.
"Ever since AIDS was 'rediscovered' in 1981, it has threatened the very fabric of society. It was 'rediscovered' by the proponents of Modern Medicine to camouflage its dismal performance in the cause, the course and the cure of major maladies. AIDS is called Oja-kshaya in Ayurveda, Vettai Noi in Siddha and Al-Zabool in Unani. Also, the scientific explanations given by Ayurveda, Siddha, Unani are more foolproof and medicines very effective and affordable as against the Allopathic cheating business". Dr. Leo Rebello, In my article 25 Years of AIDS Racket, released on World Doctors Day, 1st July 2006.
"In conclusion, Adolph Hitler's old adage, "Tell a lie loud enough, and long enough, and the masses will believe it," holds very true when it comes to HIV/AIDS. At least Hitler spoke out the truth, like Louis Pasteur on his death bed finally confessed that "it is not the germ, it is the terrain". But those who blame Hitler for the Holocaust do not have the decency to own up that they too have killed millions in the name of AIDS, Cancer treatment and toxic vaccines, thereby participating, willy-nilly, in the Population Control Program spelt out in the 'Useless Eaters' doctrine of the Neo Cons".
Dr. Leo Rebello in The Last Word - Bury HIV/AIDS Hoax Five-Fathom Deep - to my popular book AIDS AND ALTERNATIVE MEDICINE, 4th Revised and Enlarged Edition, August 2006.
Dr. Leo Rebello's Comprehensive & Candid Report
1.. This was the third consecutive AIDS Conference I attended. The first one was in Durban in 2000 (the best), the second was Barcelona (the worst) and this one, in Bangkok, proved that the Asians have better brains and capacity of organizing, innovation and hospitality. The innovation being the Global Village, which allowed even the school children to visit and learn about this so-called world problem.
2.. 'Global Village' was located strategically on the ground floor in the Impact Convention Center, with the total space of 7,500 m2 and was divided conceptually into five zones: Community Radio, Community Market, Spiritual and Mental Health Promotion Centre, Centre for Community Networking and Advocacy and Global Village Coordination Centre.
3.. 'Global Village' was designed for those who could not afford the IAC 2004 registration fee (1000 US dollars) to listen to rubbish like HIV tests, condoms for prevention, carcinogenic anti-retroviral drugs as "life saving" treatment and bogus vaccine trials to hoodwink people. It brought more people, but received less media attention. Even Ms Sudarat Keyaruphan, Minister of Public Health, Thai Govt., who was hobnobbing with the VIPs at the venue daily, did not find time or was dissuaded not to inaugurate it, in spite of 'Global Village' being the Thai Govt's idea.
4.. 19,000 delegates from all over the world thronged Bangkok, once infamous for 'free sex' now known for 'safe sex' and 'traditional massage' (foreigners enjoyed it and the locals made brisk business with reasonable rates of 150 Bahts for one hour of therapeutic pressing). Thai hospitality was at its best, exotic food and wine was aplenty (but no one got drunk), fashion clothes much better than in fashion capital France and the goras (whites) went gaga over the chic ethnic couture very affordable. Law and order was excellent, but unobtrusive. Smoking was strictly not allowed inside the conference venue or public transport (luxurious air-conditioned limousine buses).
5.. The Thai PM Thaksin Shinawatra, who spoke extempore and delivered a 'politically correct' speech, inaugurated the Conference. He said that GPO-Vir (locally produced ARV manufactured by Government Pharmaceutical Organisation) will be made available to all Thai PLWAs as per the theme of the conference 'Access for All' from October 2004. GPO-Vir will also be provided to the neighbouring countries like Laos, Cambodia, Myanmar and Vietnam. Thaksin announced one million USD donations, per annum, for 5 consecutive years to the Global Fund and received the loudest applause. However, some hired activists accusing the good PM of playing a double game marred his speech, partly.
6.. UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan was accompanied by his wife Nane and read out a prepared speech that showed no understanding of the AIDS situation at its best and connivance with the pharma cartel at its worst. Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni, who was present at the inaugural function, was not even mentioned by name. Why should a President of a country waste his time in being part of the audience is beyond my understanding?
7.. The other bigwigs who were present at the AIDS conference included: Nelson Mandela, his second wife Graca Machel, Sonia Gandhi, Miss Universe 2004 Jennifer Hawkins, veteran soul singer Dionne Warwick, Actress Ashley Judd, star of 'Double Jeopardy'; singer Coco Lee, Hollywood star Rupert Everett, the star of movies like 'My Best Friend's Wedding'; Actor and activist Richard Gere (accompanied by Parmeshwar Godrej, Indian socialite), actress-activist Shabana Azmi and hundreds of ministers accustomed to enjoying free trips, roaming aimlessly.
8.. I conducted daily workshops at the Global Village on Yoga and Meditation, Naturopathy and Diet for AIDS patients, as also on De-stressing through Drawings and Paintings, which got tremendous response. Thai people at least know about Thai traditional medicine (Ayurveda). As for the mad Americans and Europeans "surviving on mediclaim" less said the better. Their understanding about Holistic Healing modalities is abysmal.
9.. XV International AIDS conference, as in the past, began and ended with ARVs, more ARVs and more ARVs. Anti-retroviral drugs (ARVs) offer no cure for AIDS. The toxic effects of ARVs include nerve damage, weakened bones, cancers, unusual accumulation of fat in the neck and abdomen and drug-induced diabetes. Many people have developed dangerously high levels of cholesterol and other lipids in the blood, raising concern that HIV positive persons might face another epidemic of heart disease. Indiscriminate use of ARVs to pregnant mothers is fraught with danger. If a cigarette smoking mother can deliver a 'blue baby', if an alcoholic mother can deliver a 'drunk child', if thalidomide can produce 'monster babies', you are unwittingly playing with the future generation by demanding that the HIV positive mother be given ARVs compulsorily.
10. There are now some 20 ARVs and even if you were to read the mandatory caution, you will wonder how these drugs can be called 'life saving'? But that is how they are promoted and the Africans dance with their 'big botties' and make chimpanzee noises demanding free access to these dangerous drugs, not knowing what the white supremacists are trying to do to them. Their hero Nelson Mandela is unwittingly playing into the hands of Pharma mafia in spreading AIDS SCARE rather than nailing the AIDS LIE. He has formed Nelson Mandela Foundation (NMF) which organised a charity concert in Cape Town in December 2003 (clippings of which were shown on the penultimate day of the conference). Called Campaign 46664, his prison number, to create awareness and fight HIV/AIDS, the politics of NMF are counter to South African President Thabo Mbeiki's sensible policies on HIV/AIDS and malnutrition, the biggest scourge of African continent.
11. Persons Living with AIDS (PLWAs) or the organisers of AIDS conferences (pharma cartel) do not know or pretend not to know that AIDS was started as a population control programme by the CIA. The second phase is to increase the numbers of AIDS patients by false tests designed to test 90% positive and manipulating statistics. Supplying more and more ARVs to larger number of population so that their genes are mutated and the future generations turn out to be zombies, unable to think, oppose or act is the ultimate goal of this sinister programme. If you do not believe me, attend the next conference in Toronto from 13-19 August, 2006 (www.aids2006.org ) and see for yourself the manipulations that go on and the morons who present puerile papers.
12. AIDS is the biggest con of our times and a few examples will suffice.
13. I asked Dr. Jack Chow, Dy. Director General, WHO: "World Health Assembly has passed several resolutions in favour of integration of traditional and natural medicines for TB and AIDS. Why then the WHO always gives step-motherly treatment to Alternative Medicine in spite of apex body's resolutions? Is that why WHO is now called WHOre of the pharma cartel?". Tongue tied.
14. I asked Prof. Richard Chaisson of John Hopkins: "Your University recently, in association with WHO, declared after extensive study that diet and nutrition can save millions of children from dying. Why then your costly research protocol on the so-called AIDS pandemic has not taken note of this? Is it the case of left hand not knowing what the right hand is doing?". No answer.
15. I asked Dr. Helena Gayle, a minion of Gates Foundation and President-elect of International AIDS Society: "Your foundation has announced another 50 million dollars (chicken feed considering the tax exemption and publicity that Bill Gates will get). But does not even allocate 10% grants to research in traditional and natural medicine. Why? Is it because you know nothing about these systems of medicine or your boss wants to make money now in pharma business having invested heavily in all pharma MNCs?". She was stunned by my straight questions. But being a politician, she said she would discuss them later. Why later? Why not during the IAC when world attention is drawn to it?
16. I persist. I ask them that when V-1 Immunitor (the Thai oral vaccine/nano biotechnology) has shown great efficacy, or when safer homeopathic vaccines (nosodes) are available, why are they not taking it up, they have no answer. I ask them if after 50 years of trials, and billions of dollars down the drain, Cancer vaccine is not found, how can they be so sure that they will be able to find a vaccine against mutating HIV, which itself has not been identified, they gawk at me and take another question. Hundreds of participants look at me with awe or queerly.
17. I personally gave copies of my "AIDS and Alternative Medicine" book (3rd Edition, soon to go into 4th by popular demand) to the following persons:
(a) Nelson Mandela, Nobel Laureate
(b) Sonia Gandhi, de facto prime minister of India
(c) Richard Gere, actor-activist
(d) Shabana Azmi, actress-activist
(e) Helene Gayle of Gates Foundation
(f) Peter Piot, head of UNAIDS and several others in the hope that they will get the light of the day.
18. Nelson Mandela, ofcourse, is too old (he is 86) to understand or acknowledge the racket called AIDS. Sonia Gandhi (whose speech was the best and who got a standing ovation for that) did mention en passant about some people not believing in the established theory of AIDS. Richard Gere though a warm person is shallow, Shabana Azmi likewise has second hand information and Peter Piot decidedly is a conniving politician.
19. If only all the above people were to read my foolproof book on AIDS or visited my popular website: www.aidsalternativa.org they will get the complete picture of this so-called AIDS pandemic being drummed up to high crescendo. As Hitler said, "A lie repeated a thousand times becomes truth". Hitler was not right in eliminating Jews, but Hitler is very much needed today to stop the genocide unleashed by Pharma mafia in the name of AIDS pandemic.
20. For the first time, '2004 AIDS Film Festival' was organised. Held simultaneously at three different venues: (a) at Room 11 in Impact Centre (b) Lido Cinema and (c) Goethe Institut, from 13 to 19 hours, it brought many visitors. 40 Films selected from over 100 received (between April and May 2004) were screened. They dealt with exploitation of women, their low status, the trafficking of young girls, the vast crisis of illiteracy, unemployment, penury and explosive spread of injecting drug use in many countries. Films selected from various geographical regions, themes and genres were in different languages with English sub-titles or voice-overs. I saw one very poignant film titled Meddah (Mercy). It revolves around Luk Nam, an 11-year old girl in Thailand whose life has forever been changed by AIDS. Filmed over two years at a community hospice in the slums of Bangkok, the story unfolds through Luk Nam's diary as she recalls the loss of her family and her best friend.
21. I made the following comments at the end of the film. I am standing here in four capacities: (a) as a Parent (b) as a Physician (c) as a Human Rights Activist and (d) as a Communicator. As a Communicator I say that the film is excellent / heart rending. As a Physician (of 25 years standing) I must caution you that the children dying in the community hospice, as is evident from the film, were all dying by drugs, not by disease. Drug reaction and suffering due to them is evident. If only the children could speak and assert, the story would be different. As a Human Rights Activist and Parent, therefore, I shall stand up and speak fearlessly. And my indictment is pharma mafia is killing the children. We are also killing our children either due to ignorance, complicity or silence. After seeing this film I am more convinced that I will have to speak up more fearlessly to stop this sinister game. This report proves the point.
22. I shall conclude this report with two Anecdotes: All the participants at the AIDS conference were given free condoms daily. So, when I received my 100th condom as gift (in less than a week) at the hands of a beautiful, buxom college girl working as a volunteer (there were hundreds of them) I asked her teasingly, "what am I supposed to do with it?". She replied, like a parrot, "use it for safe sex". I retorted, "You have provided a condom, the next logical step is to gift a woman". She blushed, giggled, bowed and answered smartly that her job was only to distribute condoms.
23. At a stall on female condoms, I found a high ranking Thai bureaucrat being 'educated' by the college kids on the benefits of Female condom, and the press personnel going crazy to get that byte. I asked the volunteers at that stall: "Condoms come in how many sizes because African, American women are too big, whereas Thai women are very slim and small". The boys could not answer. I asked the Thai official whether he knew that Penises came in three sizes 5 inches (standard size), 7 inches and 9 inches (according to Playboy magazine world survey), the official laughed and sneaked away before I could ask him another difficult question.
24. This condom approach (incidentally a condom protects only 60%) is creating condom culture of promiscuity, condom ethics, condom morals, condom generation and condom civilisation. We are writing condomised history. Infact one lady has even created condom wedding gowns and fancy dresses, which you can wear only once like the condoms. If this madness were to continue, there would be only one-night stands, no marriages, and no population on earth. Only selected members of Masonic Mafia, who is masterminding the world, will rule to glory.
25. On July 23, upon my return from Bangkok, I circulated a brief note to my select friends as under: "I returned from Bangkok this morning. Met Nelson Mandela, Sonia Gandhi, Richard Gere, Jennifer Hawkins (Miss Universe 2004), Helena Gayle of Gates Foundation and several others. After the AIDS Conference, I conducted three workshops for the Thai Govt. (210 participants / two days residential for the Public Health Dept.), another workshop on Homeopathy (60 participants mainly doctors, half day at the Dept. of Alternative Medicine) and third workshop (60 participants, half day, for the National Health Security Office of the Thai Govt.)."
26. Responding to it, my good friend Leonard Carr, M.D., Ph.D. writes, "The ex-President you mentioned is an Elite and the fact that he was there means he was 'approved'. The Gates woman you met has to be hard core, as that entire group is. That's what happens with these One-World things. You end up with fascism of the worst kind and all the decent people in jail or executed. At least you live in an open Country, which tolerates differences of opinion and is in no great hurry to 'strike' the defenseless. I admire India. I admire your rectitude, Leo and your search for the Truth. You deserve better. Yes, more doors will open and yes, they will have to listen to you".
27. When AIDS Conference next comes to India in 2008 (proposed), I shall be the first one to organise a parallel conference on AIDS and Alternative Medicine. Let us start preparing from right now to end this AIDS racket which is playing havoc with people's health and lives.
I took a big bird to Seoul, Korea on 21st May and returned on 6th June. This was the 61st country visited.
Korea is very well-developed and there is absolutely nil thefts, no eve teasing, and crime graph is low. So much so, the friend (Prof. Timothy Watson, a Canadian teaching in Korea) with whom I stayed, kept his house door open and we simply walked in after late night parties. Frankly, I used to get jitters that somebody may lift my dollars, passport or flight tickets. Nothing of that happened. People are non-interfering and couples kiss and hug on the roads, like in Europe. They also smoke heavily, even school girls and boys.
The food was delicious but the vegetarians find it difficult to get anything of their choice except fruits. As a result even Hindus living there are not vegetarians. One Hindu friend even ate beef and pork. The roads are so big and traffic so smooth that our potholed Western Express Highway looks like a Sandas (latrine) gully of a shanty town. I did not see a single accident in my ten days stay and travel across Korea. Thrice I travelled by KTX (same as Bullet train of Japan or TGV in Europe -- speed above 300 kms per hour).
Goods are cheap (but nothing to beat India) and chinky-eyed Korean women are not half as attractive as Indian women. A saree-wearing Indian woman stands out anywhere in the world.
While in Korea, a Hollywood camera man presently working in Korea, filmed me on the Freedom Bridge that separates North and South Korea and at the War Museum, where all kinds of war machines -- right from a submarine to bombers, helicopters to tanks, anti-aircraft guns and other heavy artillery is displayed. Children like to play on these stationary machines. If only they knew that these gizmos kill people.
Would you know that 11 radar-evading bombers cost US$24 billion, which is enough to provide 4 years of primary education for the 135 million children not in school. You can well imagine what 200+ billion US dollars that America has spent in invading Iraq for the second time, could have achieved.
Korea has an American base and that keeps the two Koreas divided. One American wanted to treat me to dinner with other friends at the restaurant inside the American base. But I was not allowed in, since India along with Russia and some other countries are listed as "counter intelligence posed by the countries on the list" meaning these countries are red rags to the American bull.
So, we drove to Haehwa area and had delightful traditional Korean supper at Good Restaurant. In Korean restaurants you sit on the ground and eat at a low table with chop sticks. One gets on the house something like 20 salads, fish pickles, etc. with the meal ordered. I also recited my poems at a Poets dinner evening (which is held once a month) on another day at a different location.
To Malaysia it was my fourth visit. Stayed with Prof. Ghazali Basri and Dr. Noriah Mohammed, the husband and wife top ranking educationists of Malaysia, who had met me recently in Mumbai. They have a seven-bedroom, 1000 stars bungalow with plush garden and a parking space for four cars. They put me in an exclusive air conditioned guest house meant for VIP guests. The visitors' book itself is a Who's Who of the World.
Malaysians, on special occasion, wear a towel or half lungi (sarong) over trousers and that looks actually silly. It is compulsory at Friday namaz. People are warm-hearted and the standard of living is very high. Putrajaya, an union territory, houses PM's majestic palace, PM's secretariat, a grand mosque where thousands can pray, shopping complex and restaurants serving exotic food overlooking a massive man-made lake. While the lake was being filled, the people there had to suffer acute water shortage for three months. We had Portuguese food at Nando's, a perfectly grilled chicken, the taste of which was so delicious that I have asked them to open a branch in Bombay. Also, for the first time in my life I tasted a fruit called Durian, "which smells hell but tastes like heaven". Belongs to Jackfruit family and looks and tastes gooey.
I first met Dr. Deepak Chopra in October, 1982 at the Medicina Alternativa Conference in Colombo, and he attended my Stress Management (Shavasana) demonstration. I met him again on 15 January, 2003, at the Global Holistic Health Summit (GHHS) in Bangalore from 12 to 17 January, 2003.
20 years ago, Deepak was handsome. Now he looked definitely tired, skin slightly darkened, noticeable paunch necessitating black jacket buttons to be kept open, puffiness under the eyes and hair dyed to match the fancy attire.
In 1982, I had not heard him, except exchange of a few pleasantries.
The voice was gruff and monotonous, though he has learnt the art of public speaking and he is fluent in English. Unlike other Indians settled in America, he has not acquired the American accent and the Jat accent is still present.
The inexperienced organisers of the GHHS (Dr. Issac Mathai, Dr. Kim Jobst) had originally given only one hour to Dr. Deepak Chopra. But he demanded half-a-day (or else he said he would not come). Consequently, to pander to his unjust demand, senior persons like Dr. Norman Shealy of USA were sidelined and an entire session (consisting of interesting topics like Foolish is the Doctor Who Despises the Knowledge Acquired by the Ancients) was relocated creating lots of acrimony.
Deepak Chopra session frankly was dry and drab, sans poetry. He is well read no doubt and puts old wine in a new bottle well. But information is not knowledge and knowledge is not wisdom.
Even though Deepak partly talked on Stress, he himself looked stressed and I was not the only one to think so. Maybe, he does not get enough rest from all these frequent flights across the continent to make money.
And now maybe he is losing his clout or the saturation point has come. The organisers had kept about 100 chairs reserved, half of which were empty and Chopra definitely did not look too pleased when he arrived. So, the organisers quickly had to remove the "reserved" block and late comers got good seating.
Only once people clapped during his longish lecture. During Question and Answer session, he could not take a few questions properly, but many were answered with panache.
Referring to President George Bush he is an eight-year old brat! Referring to a question on insects/viruses etc. Insects taking over maybe good for the planet, for human beings have destroyed the earth. Ten commandments cannot be legislated. They have to be adopted. Explaining the adverse effect of hostility on heart he used some 2000 words. My famous quote: Hate attacks are Heart attacks, summarizes it all.
The Global Holistic Health Summit was attended by about 500 foreign and Indian delegates. It was declared open by the Minister of Health, Karnataka and closed by the Governor of Karnataka and Sri Sri Ravi Shankar of Art of Living Foundation graced the function, among others.
I presented two papers : AIDS and Alternative Medicine (an overview) and Nature Cure for AIDS. Bombay, dated 18 January, 2003.
Returned to Bombay on 11th November 2002 morning after a successful tour of Germany and UK.
In Berlin, addressed some 3000 participants at the MAKE HEALTH, NOT WAR conference and also participated for a day in the Codex Alimentarius deliberations of FAO/WHO - a racket which plans to ban vitamins from open sale and curtail the growing popularity of Holistic Healing. This madness, if left alone may one day require a doctor's prescription to buy tomatoes, carrots, oranges and apples!!!
On 3rd November, I was driven 1200 kms in 9 hours from Berlin to Dusseldorf and back, to see a patient in coma.
From 5 to 10th November, I was in London and addressed a dinner meeting in my honour on 6th November (my 21st Wedding Anniversary). Everyone who attended my talk, queued up for my treatment. The meeting was arranged jointly by Robert D'Souza and Milton Rodrigues.
While in London, I also participated for one day in the Holistic Health Exhibition/Seminar and visited Kent. The Swami Narayan Temple in Neasden wanted to organise my talk next Saturday or Sunday (16 or 17 Nov) when some 2000 persons attend for a discourse. But I could not extend my stay because of heavy schedule.
Most probably, I will be in Colombo from 25 to 30th November addressing the annual World Conference of Alternative Medicine and Holistic Health.
Now read the following:
Recently two important events took place in Berlin : "Make Health, Not War" conference organised by Dr. Rath Foundation at which about 3000 persons were present (2 and 3 November) and The Codex Alimentarius Committee's closed-door confabulations on Nutrition and special dietary foods (4 to 8 November, 2002). I addressed the first event as one of the main speakers and participated in the second. Given below are my impressions and conclusions, drawn jointly with Josef Hasslberger, an activist based in Rome, Italy.
WHO DECIDES ABOUT OUR HEALTH?
Baby foods, nutritional supplements and the "Codex Alimentarius"
By Josef Hasslberger an activist from Italy and Dr. Leo Rebello, health expert from India.
Codex Alimentarius is the name of a global food-standard setting body that is attached to the Food and Agriculture Organisation (FAO) of the United Nations' WHO. The deliberations in Berlin this past week of a committee charged with developing guidelines for vitamin and mineral supplements have shown progress towards a risk based approach for regulating vitamins and minerals. This is a positive development in view of the substantial agreement that had persisted in the past, for an RDA-based approach which would have been disastrous especially for public health world wide.
Two days before the beginning of the week-long discussions which took place in Berlin from 4 to 8 November 2002, the Dr. Rath Foundation had organised a large conference attended by approx. 3000 people, where the results of scientific studies were made available. The studies and the personal successes of people taking vitamin supplements on the advice of Dr. Rath prove the overwhelming importance of changing from a pharmaceutical and symptom-based approach to illness to a nutrition based, cellular-level approach. Perhaps more importantly, Rath's conference brought together a group of representatives of organisations from several countries, all concerned with preserving freedom of choice for natural methods of prevention and cure.
Two days later, on the morning that saw the beginning of the official Codex conclave, many of the participants in the Rath event were demonstrating outside the gates of the building hosting the meeting, loudly demanding that their health choices be respected.
Meanwhile, delegates from about 50 of the Codex member countries started to deliberate standards for baby foods. Agreement on this issue was as elusive as it has been for years, maybe more so now than ever. The greater issue of globalization can be observed, neatly compressed into the Codex "microcosm" for everyone to see. Multinational pharmaceutical and food industries, with the backing of a number of industrialized countries, try to pave the way for the global free sale of their products. This is greatly resisted by most of the developing countries and by consumer advocates who believe that babies are best fed on mother's milk. Developing nations believe that they should not be forced by an international standard-setting body to accept baby foods which are too expensive for most of their starving population and which, from a nutritional point of view, are admittedly inferior to mother's milk.
These nations are worried that their traditional, natural foods and especially the practice of mothers breast feeding their children, will be swept aside by the promotional abilities of the multinationals - An understandable worry, in the light of the "civilizing" progress that colonization has forced on the third world for the better part of the past couple of centuries. Their economies are in shambles because of, "structural adjustment" measures forced on them by the IMF and the World Bank. Their agriculture is unable to develop because local production cannot compete against agricultural subsidies given to their own farmers by economic empires such as the US and Europe. It seems that after a long sleep, the developing countries are waking up and resisting. They perceive the imposition of standards made for global industries as an effort to re-establish colonial domination on the part of the industrialized nations.
Vitamin and mineral supplements
Days of deliberations brought little visible progress. Towards the end of the three-day conclave, the subject of food supplements was once again on the agenda. Although the issue of supplements is in many ways quite different from that of baby foods, the same worries prevail with developing nations. They see vitamin and mineral supplements as another "blessing" to be bestowed on them by the same hated multinationals, the giant global pharmaceutical and food industries. We must view the Codex discussions on food supplements against this backdrop.
The proposal for a guideline on vitamin and mineral supplements, first made in 1994 by the German Codex delegation, seeks to extend the philosophy of control so prevalent in that nation and in much of the rest of continental Europe, to the whole world. The draft proposes to set strict limits on the composition and potency of these extra nutritional foods, relegating everything exceeding "nutritionally necessary" dosages to the world of medicine, a world which today is clearly dominated by pharmaceutical interests.
If this "medical madness" is allowed to persist, there may come a day when people may require doctor's prescription to buy tomatoes, carrots, oranges and apples!
Scientific approach to limits
Early in the discussions of this particular Codex session, the importance of a scientific approach to regulation was stressed by FAO and the WHO. Risk analysis and risk management, an emerging branch of science, is part and parcel of such a scientific approach. Yet, on food supplements, the German chairman Rolf Grossklaus proposed to "protect consumers" for the next four or five years by establishing both lower and upper limits to product dosages, while waiting for the squadrons of risk managers to get up to speed.
Two options were to be discussed, RDA-based limits and risk-based scientific evaluation. No agreement could be reached on which path to follow. While most of the industrialized nations including Europe and the US asked for a risk based scientific approach, the feeling among some of the African, Asian and South American developing nations was that this would open their markets to a host of products they could not control, a division of opinion reminiscent of the discussions on baby foods.
When discussing the preamble of the draft guideline, remarkably, the South African delegate strongly stood up for the free availability of supplements, to the extent of lambasting the participants for what she called a hypocritical approach to health and even a "return to the dark ages". In the face of scientific data indicating that supplementation is potentially life saving, Ms. Booyzen said, Codex should not be thinking of putting limits on safe products such as vitamin and mineral supplements. She suggested, quoting scientific studies, that supplements might be useful to prevent many of the diseases of civilization, the so called degenerative diseases which are due to sub-optimum supplies of certain nutrients in the body.
This was a refreshing new development, warmly welcomed by non-governmental delegations and observers concerned with consumer choice. In the more than lively discussion that followed, several delegations echoed the European Union representative who stated in full earnest that anything with preventive, let alone curative, properties must be considered a medicine and is therefore outside the Codex mandate and is not part of the things to be legitimately discussed by the Committee.
An obvious contradiction
The discussion brought a glaring, basic contradiction inherent in our health policy into plain view: We are told to eat fruit and vegetables, possibly five helpings a day, to stay healthy and to prevent heart disease and even cancer, yet we may not take the nutrients we seek in the form of supplements for the same purpose! It is another way of saying that "there is a pharmaceutical monopoly on medicine and health, that must not be touched". Food has nothing to do with health, according to this particular twisted view, and before you may even obtain high power nutritional support, you must first get sick!
Respecting the existence and the overriding character of that pharmaceutical monopoly, the Codex Committee on Nutrition and special dietary foods could not agree on the purpose of supplementation. Nutrients, after all, have nothing to do with prevention, which remains exclusive territory of pharmaceutical medicine! The preamble of the proposed guidelines therefore remained open to discussion. Chairman Grossklaus then proposed to concentrate on the issue of possible dosage limits so as to afford some temporary "protection" to consumers, but found that a divided assembly could not make up its mind.
What's the score
The "scorecard" of the discussions on dosage limits confirms our suspicions of a "larger game" going on in the background, unseen and unacknowledged by many of the participants. Far from living up to its fragile consensus on the necessity of introducing scientific risk management into decision making on public health, the committee's members again divided into two opposing camps.
The European Union and its member states voiced support for the "second option", that of letting science decide where the dividing line should be drawn between what is allowed and what is not. They were supported by Australia, New Zealand, the US, South Africa, Japan, Switzerland, Canada, the UK and, remarkably, Russia, Korea and Peru. Norway was adamant, on the other hand, that its citizens should not have access to any supplement of vitamins and minerals that contains more than the RDA, the recommended dosage which is associated with an absence of the classical deficiency diseases such as scurvy or sailors' disease. No matter that scurvy was eradicated when the British Royal Navy started following the advice of James Lind, who said eating a few lemons could prevent and even cure the dreaded disease. The Vikings found allies for their restrictive views in Brazil, Indonesia, Thailand, Benin, Malaysia and Nigeria.
In view of such widespread discord, the Chairman of the Committee could not but concede defeat and propose that the guideline should "remain on step three" of the eight-step approval procedure. He invited governments once again to make written comments on the draft text before, one year from now, the Committee will consider the matter anew. Unfortunately, or should we say fortunately, there was no time left to continue discussions.
In conclusion, and in a more than one sense, consumers and the health food industry as well as natural medicine were "saved by the bell". What remains to be done is a lot of education on the beneficial and indeed life saving character of nutritional supplementation. There is great urgency to act, especially in the face of repeated lies being dished out continuously to manipulate public opinion.
Codex, globalization and the pharmaceutical monopoly on health
The issue should also be examined in a broader context. Codex Alimentarius and its proposed guidelines are but the tip of the proverbial iceberg. The discussions mirror the deadly embrace of two giants - global pharmaceutical and food industries allied with "western medicine" on the one hand and the age-old traditions of herbalism and "traditional medicine" with the more recently developed nutritional approach of "cellular medicine" on the other. Clearly, the Codex issue cannot resolve until there is a recognition of the fact that medicine must NOT be monopolized by any one particular system. Right to Health is as good as Right to Life and it is slowly dawning on people that medical mafia has killed more people in peace times than all the war casualties put together.
We need to approach health from a viewpoint of plurality, and that includes abandoning the currently widespread insistence of western governments that "foods must not be used to cure or prevent any disease". Codex cannot escape its responsibilities for our health by saying "we deal only in foods", or, put into different words, "medicine is none of our business". A balance must be struck between prevention based on nutrition and traditional means on one side and the pharmaceutical approach to health on the other.
Globalization of health care under the domination of our particular brand of pharmaceutically dominated "scientific western medicine" will inevitably lead to a broadening of the conflict we observe in these discussions. Insistence on a pharma-centered approach to health has turned out to be so wasteful that governments are now unable to bear its costs. The system is breaking down, western populations are killed by diet-related scourges such as heart disease and cancer, while the use of supplements for preventive purposes is officially frowned upon. At the same time, properly approved and prescribed pharmaceutical drugs have become the third or fourth most widespread cause of death in the "civilized" nations. This sinister design to profit on people's suffering by scaring them with newer and newer diseases and more and more lethal drugs has to end to restore Health to people, like wars have to end to restore Peace in the world. A few persons cannot be allowed to manipulate with the lives of millions, nay the very future of the planet Earth.
What to do?
The forces proposing a pluralistic approach to health must wake up and start working together. Time is short. One year, the time that will pass before this particular Codex Committee is to meet again, is nothing in the time scale of legislative developments. For the sake of our health we should advocate our right to choose - loudly if needed - to eat real food, preferably organic, to use nutrients for prevention and to return to scientific medicinal traditions that have stood the test of millennia and have served us well. We must combine these age-old scientific traditions with new research and knowledge of biochemistry, but we should also be wary of "scientific adventures" such as genetic modification of our foods, the invention of ever new "xeno-biotic" drugs, the poisoning of our environment in the name of "pest control", "weed killing" adding deleterious dosage of chlorine to drinking water, flouride poisoning, etc.
Let's get to work to build a great alliance to defeat the Codex manipulations, for at stake is our Right to Health and that of our future generation. The killing games the pharma-cartel plays must end. Arise, Awake and Act, NOW.
International AIDS Conference was nothing but a circus - with 17,000 participants, leaders like Bill Clinton, IK Gujral, Health Minister of India 'Shotgun' Sinha reading from the notes passed by mediocre Secretaries, Bachi Karkaria-type journalists asking foolish questions to mark their presence, practically 90% delegates smoking and freaking out, after collecting their per diem (210 Euros each, in addition to free air ticket, free accommodation, free transport, free food and gifts), Barcelona turned out into the biggest tourist destination. I was the ONLY stupid person who did not take one day, half-day, two-days sightseeing tours.
The "official" conference dealt with anti-retrovirals, anti-retrovirals, and anti-retrovirals ! Nothing on Alternative Medicine, Alternative Methods, Alternative Approaches. Durban AIDS Conference 2000 was decidedly much better in every respect. The next jamboree is in Thailand in 2004 and India is bidding for 2006.
If only I had collected the papers/things strewn everywhere on the last day at the Conference venue in Barcelona, and transported to India, I would make atleast two million rupees by selling that waste! What a criminal waste of resources. One glaring example should suffice : Glaxo gave to each and every delegate bags, pens, medals, CDs, coffee flasks, mugs, books, posters and unlimited flow of coffee and tea, not to speak of luncheons and parties, because it has made the biggest profits by selling anti-retrovirals, ostensibly by saving the poor AIDS patients dying in Africa, Asia and Latin America !
The parallel AIDS conference which did NOT believe in HIV = AIDS = DEATH paradigm, at which I was one of the main speakers along with Roberto Giraldo, Etienne de Harven, was more challenging. But since it was NOT sponsored, it lacked in funds, and consequently there were about 500 participants as against 17,000 participants at the "official" conference. But it was well covered by the media.
On my return journey, I spent one day in Paris, and then three days each in Kuwait and Dubai, lecturing Indians, who liked my lectures and healing methods so much, that they have decided to host me again in September or November in Dubai, Kuwait, Muscat, Bahrain and other places.
And then I made a dash to Delhi to file my nomination in the Indian Vice Presidential elections.
