Torako Yui Ph.D.Hom

Born in Ehime in 1953, Torako Yui is a leading disseminator of homoeopathic practices in Japan. While living in the UK, she suffered badly from ulcerative colitis, and after many types of treatment she discovered homoeopathy. She started to study homoeopathy and became the first registered homoeopath of Japanese origin in the Homoeopathic Medical Association (HMA) in the U.K. She returned to Japan and her studies of Hahnemann and homoeopathy have been extremely well received in Japan and abroad. She continues to play a leading role in homoeopathy in the 21st Century, where her theory of "ZEN Homoeopathy" has achieved a remarkably high curative rate for intractable diseases - such as developmental disorders and auto-immune diseases - which conventional medicines fail to fully address. An international advisor for "The Homoeopathic Heritage International", she has given presentations across the globe. A prolific author, her books have been translated into English, and German.

The Carlos Finlay Institute, Havana, Cuba.
Dr Bracho will be giving presentations on the remarkable results he and his team at the Finlay Institute in their homoeoprophylatic treatment of Leprospirosis, a complaint that affects many Cubans in the hurricane season. The study shows how effective and safe homoeopathy is when compared to traditional medical vaccinations.
In November 2007, after severe floods in three provinces of eastern Cuba, 2.3 million people were declared at risk of Leptospirosis. After the Finlay Institute administered dilutions of Leptospirosis a significant decrease in the incidence of disease, and of the accompanying mortality rate of inpatients, was observed within a two week period in the intervention regions. The expected Leptospirosis epidemic was relatively low as a result. As Dr Bracho and his team continue their studies they will be presenting updated information.
