EXCLUSIVE: Homeopaths sent to deadly Ebola hotspot to treat victims with ARSENIC and SNAKE VENOM
- Team spent days in remote Liberian hospital to prove that remedies work
- They planned to treat victims with 'rattlesnake venom' and 'Spanish Fly'
- Boasted of the 'unique opportunity' presented by deadly Ebola outbreak
- Claimed they would treat all European victims after proving success
Ebola victims in one of the hardest-hit parts of Liberia have been treated by homeopaths who are determined to prove that arsenic, rattlesnake venom and the aphrodisiac Spanish Fly can cure Ebola.
The homeopaths arrived in Liberia to use the deadly outbreak to prove their controversial theories and have already spent two weeks in the country with patients in a hospital in Ganta, in the north of the country near to the epicentre of the outbreak.
In letters and messages seen by Mail Online they revealed that the aim of their mission was to prove that homeopathy could treat Ebola.
'The manufacturers of experimental vaccines will then have to change their opinions,' boasted Dr Edouard Broussalian, one of the team of two men and two women working in the remote area.
The mission was organised by the Liga Medicorum Homeopathica Internationalis, an international group dedicated to promoting homeopathy.
A message on its website proclaims the initial visit a success because, it claims, the team's results were so 'impressive' that they were asked to establish a program of homeopathic teaching and treatment at the hospital.
'The mission's broader goal of bringing homeopathy to Liberia is therefore underway, thanks to the four volunteers and their work,' it said.
But their intervention has dismayed critics of the controversial technique, whose practitioners use dilutions of substances in water.
Mike Noyes, the head of humanitarian response at UK charity ActionAid, which has teams who support clinics in Sierra Leone and Liberia, told MailOnline: 'With this crisis, you can't be offering false hope.
