"Ode to Joe" on his 84th bday

Dear Joe admired by all
It’s a special day for you
Since you have just turned 84
Let’s think of all you do.

Consulting from your office desk
Helping those who’ve heard
About your super remedies
For diabetes, heart and GERD.

That’s not all, there’s PCOS too
Heart problems and BP
Colds, catarrh and cholesterol,
And stones in the kidney.

A match stick for diarrhoea
I’ve been yearning for the day…
When I can try that cool trick out
But my bowels work okay.

Hamamellis for hemorrhoids
Nat phos for obesity
Eupatorium Perfoliatum
Tough words in homeopathy.

Asthmatics everywhere know well
That breathing can be hard
If Nat Sulph works the way it should
Your puffer you’ll discard.

I’ve got jet-lag under wraps
Hair fall under arrest
You said turmeric is good
To that I will attest.

To beat Dengue fever on a larger scale
Would be really neat
Oh come on Ministry of Health…
Those harsh drugs can’t compete!

Your own website at 84
I am so impressed!
Coz people younger than you Joe
Lack your tech-savvy-ness.

With ‘Arnica’ now a household word
‘Joepathy’ and ‘wet dose’ too
Tonight I will succuss and sip…
To many more years for you!

Dear Cathy

Thank you for a Brilliant piece of Poetry where you have excelled yourself and have earned not only my admiration, but the admiration of the other members of the ABC and through it, of the World of your singular and very original effort to remember me on my 84th Birthday.

I never thought that you would surprise me the way you did a few days ago with your photograph of the Birthday Cake which you baked in my honour and which I thought was very original indeed.
Members who read this thread and who have not seen this photograph of this Birthday cake can do so on:

You did mention about your 'Ode to Joe' which I did not read till a short while ago. I am indeed humbled by your God given ability to weave the many remedies I have prescribed to members of the ABC and my Website, into your outstanding piece of Poetry 'Ode to Joe'.

I can see that you have made a detailed study of my therapy on the ABC and on my Website, to include them all into Poetry which unfortunately I am not good at. As you may be aware, many of these remedies are not listed for the diseases that I have prescribed them for, and constitute my own 'discoveries' which therefore qualify for their classification under the term 'Joepathy'.

Thank you for your very original effort and I hope that it will be read by other members of the ABC. I am also copying it on my own Website.

Kind Regards

I would like to invite members to visit the link below to read another post by Bettin-beta which she posted a few days ago, where she included a photograph of a Birthday Cake she baked in my honour on


This Birthday cake had Icing which read:
'Happy Birthday Joe and was replete with many lighted candles.

It is indeed good to know that a patient whom I had helped with my therapy aka 'Joepathy' should show her gratitude in this very original form.

You’re welcome Joe!
I am delighted to hear that you liked the poem. Poetry and parody writing give me much pleasure, but I do need inspiration – and YOU certainly are.
Hoping your day is going well and that it is the start of an amazing year.
PS. Yes you’re right I’ve been through the ‘list of ailment’ page and several of the testimonies which are fascinating.

Belated happy returns of the day Joe. My best wishes to you for remaining healthy forever. You have made a unique contribution to homeopathy by introducing your therapies. God bless you.

Thank you for your greetings on my 84th Birthday and I appreciate your statement:
'You have made a unique contribution to homeopathy by introducing your therapies.'

I do not think that you are aware of the trauma that I suffered from for over 10 years in insisting on my 'This for That' therapy which some classical homeopaths labelled 'Joepathy' when I had occasion to quote a statement by Arthur Shopenhauer which reads:

'All truth passes through three stages.
First it is ridiculed
Second it is violently opposed
Third it is accepted as being Self-evident'

I believe that I finally reached the third stage referred to above in my defence of my Joepathy a few years ago, as I do not attract the same violent criticism that dogged my prescriptions in the past, where every one was challenged by 3 classical Homeopaths the last of whom was of Australian origin.

I was delighted to read a few years ago that Dr Prasanta Banerji of the Prasanta Banerji Homeopathic Foundation who is a qualified Homeopath unlike me had also adopted this same allopathic formula in treating his over 1500 patients who consult his doctors in his Foundation in Kolkata.

I faithfully abided by the rules prescribed in the classical texts I studied 40 years ago of 'Treating the SYMPTOMS presented by a patient with a SINGLE remedy. I also added Radar 9 at considerable cost to my Mac by using Parallels Desktop software to enable me to use it on my Mac as Radar was writhed specifically for the PC Platform.

I was sadly disappointed by the results as the therapy I was advised to prescribe even by Radar did not always cure the patient. It was then that I decided to use my own Joepathy with outstanding results and I am glad that I persisted in doing so, as the number of cases I have cured was by far, more numerous than previously.

I have logged all my research on Arnica and other remedies for common diseases, which I hope you will read on my Website including 'Arnica the Miracle Remedy'. There are also many articles spotlighting the trauma I suffered from the harsh criticism I attracted on this ABC Forum too which I have copied on my Website:

God Bless you too.
