Kjetill Oftedal (Ken Oftedal) ist ein norwegischer Physiker, Buchautor und Medizinlaie, der im Jahre 2014 überregional durch seinen absurden und über das Internet bekannt gemachten Vorschlag bekannt wurde, eine Ebola-Infektion mit Hilfe der Homöopathie zu behandeln. Derzeit (2014) lebt Oftedal in Caracas (Venezuela), wo er eine "International Homeopathic Web Clinic", eine "Avila Clinic" sowie eine Ausbildungseinrichtung für Homöopathen betreibt.
Oftedal besitzt nach eigenen Angaben einen Bachelor-Abschluß als Physiker der University of Maryland. Bei Georgos Vithoulkas absolvierte er einen Homöopathiekurs. Zu Oftedal ist bekannt, dass er in der Vergangenheit diversen Berufen nachging. So war er als Matrose, Nachtwächter, Geschäftsmann, Bohrinseltechniker, Computerprogrammierer und Übersetzer tätig. Als Medizinlaie interessierte sich Oftedal für die Homöopathie und eröffnete in Spanien (Estepona) eine Privatklinik, an der die Homöopathie praktiziert wurde. Eine Ausbildung im Gesundheitsbereich ist zu Oftedal nicht bekannt.
Homöopathischer Behandlungsvorschlag bei Ebola-Infektion
Am 10. August 2014 erschien im Blog der Firma "naturalnews" von Mike Adams ein Artikel von Ken Oftedal, in dem er einen detallierten Behandlungsvorschlag unterbreitete, eine Ebolainfektion alleine mit Hilfe der Homöopathie zu behandeln. Der exakte Wortlaut ist unten im Abschnitt "Quellennachweise" nachzulesen. Im Falle einer Ebola-Erkrankung solle der Betroffene wegen einer behaupteten Symptomähnlichkeit eines Klapperschlangenbisses sowie weiterer Bisse durch giftige Schlange potenzierte Extrakte von Schlangen einnehmen. Oftedal nennt die Mittel
- Crotalus Horridus (potenziertes Schlangift)
- Lachesis (potenziertes Schlangengift)
- Bothrops (potenziertes Schlangengift)
Zur Eigenherstellung empfiehlt Oftedal explizit die Entnahme infektiöser Gewebeproben oder Blut von bereits an Ebola Erkrankten, um damit eine Nosode herzustellen. Er beschreibt die absurde Praktik dabei zur Anwendung durch medizinische Laien:
- How to Make Your Own Ebola Remedy
- What you need:
- 1. A face mask and gloves
- 2. Two bottles (50 ml up to 500 ml glass or plastic bottles) with caps
- 3. Clean water (mineral or tap water)
- 4. An Ebola sample: some spit or other disease product, such as blood, from a person infected with Ebola, or who is suspected sick with it. Any small quantity will do, even a pinhead.
- 5. An alcoholic liquid, such as whisky, brandy, rum, etc.
- 6. Half an hour of your time.
- 1. Fill the bottle with water, leaving about 20% space at the top.
- 2. Place the Ebola sample in the water in the bottle.
- 3. Close the top of the bottle with the cap.
- 4. Hold the bottle and strike it hard against a solid surface, such as a large book, 40 times.
- 5. Pour out the contents of the bottle.
6. Refill the bottle with water (the fluid remaining on the inside surface of the bottle will serve as the next Ebola sample).
- 7. Repeat steps 3 to 6 a total of 30 times.
- If you are sick with Ebola:
- 1. Place a teaspoonful of the Ebola remedy from your stock bottle into a cup filled with water.
- 2. Stir the water five times with a disposable spoon or stick.
3. Take a sip every 15 minutes, stirring five times each time until you notice improvement, then stop.
- 4. On improving, you can ease off and take the remedy every hour or so, again stirring five times before taking the remedy each time.
- 5. Refill the cup as needed after striking the stock bottle against a hard surface five times.
Die New Yorker Zeitung Daily News und mehrere Medizinblogs berichteten kurz nach Erscheinen des Blogartikels von Oftedal über die Therapieempfehlung. Daraufhin wurde Oftedals Artikel bei naturalnews gelöscht.

Treating Ebola with Homeopathy
By Ken Oftedal
Posted Sunday, August 10, 2014 at 11:10am EDT
During its more than 200 year history, homeopathy has proven highly effective in epidemics, both as regards cure and prevention, with well-documented success rates in, among others, scarlet fever, polio, cholera and flu epidemics, and offers a viable alternative to standard vaccination called homeoprophylaxis.
With the current threat of an Ebola epidemic, this technology and experience can be put to good use. In this article you will find the means to help you survive an Ebola virus infection, in particular, if no medical support is available to you.
In the Spanish flu epidemic of 1918, statistics ran as follows: 28% mortality in patients treated with traditional medicine, 1% mortality of patients treated with homeopathic remedies—and there were large numbers involved in these statistics. One wonders why medical authorities have not acted on this and numerous similar successes of homeopathy to improve their treatment procedures in epidemics.
The link to the pdf file Homeopathy in Epidemics and Pandemics, by Jayney Goddard at the end of this article reveals many examples of successful homeopathic treatment in various kinds of epidemics.
Symptoms of Ebola
After being infected with the Ebola virus, symptoms may appear as soon as after two days and as late as 21 days, the average period being 8–10 days. Symptoms of Ebola can be similar to those of malaria, cholera, dengue fever, viral hemorrhaging fevers and tropical fevers.
Ebola usually starts with flu-like symptoms such as fever, sore throat, fatigue, muscle pain, abdominal pain and headache. There may also be chest pain, hiccups, shortness of breath, difficulty in swallowing and a red rash. Middle Phase
In this phase of Ebola, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, liver and kidney problems appear, as well as problems with blood clotting, leading to bleeding. Final Stage
The final stage of Ebola is the bloody one: red, bleeding eyes, bloody vomit, bloody stools, red or purple spots on the skin, localized collections of blood in the skin (hematoma), bleeding from body orifices. The symptoms described above for Ebola resemble symptoms produced in healthy persons who took one of the following homeopathic remedies— including symptoms of people who were bitten by the snake concerned:
• Crotalus Horridus (made from rattlesnake venom— fits the Ebola symptoms picture 95%)
• Lachesis (made from venom of the bushmaster snake)
• Bothrops (made from the venom of the yellow viper found on the island of Martinique)
• Phosphorus (made from the element of the same name—relates to internal bleeding)
Thus, the symptom pictures of these remedies (check the Internet) should be examined for a match for the Ebola symptoms seen in a patient. Use the remedy with the closest match to treat the patient.
Example Case of Crotalus Horridus Symptoms
Just to give you an idea of the similarities of Ebola symptoms with those from rattle snake bite poisoning, here you have a case reported by a homeopathic doctor more than a century ago. The patient, aged 54, had been bitten by a rattlesnake in the middle finger. He had received conventional treatment for four days, after which the medical personnel gave up, stating that no further treatment would do any good. The homeopathic doctor, Dr. J. S. M. Chaffee, found the patient in a state of delirium, bleeding from the bitten finger, from the eyes, nose, ears, mouth, rectum and urethra; the entire body was wet with hot perspiration, the pulse weak at 110, respiration 40, temperature 105 degrees F. The patient was prescribed Crotalus Horridus 30C in the form of a few pills of this remedy dissolved in four ounces of water, to take a teaspoonful every hour. The doctor returned twenty-four hours later to observe that the patient had improved markedly. The temperature was normal, pulse regular, the delirium gone and the appetite returning. The patient’s saliva and urine were slightly tinged with blood. The remedy was continued for two days, after which recovery was practically complete. This case has an interesting parallel, as at that time, 1892, there was no anti-venom available for this case, just as there is no cure nor vaccine for Ebola at present—and, lo and behold, a homeopathic remedy cured the case in short order.
Your best bet is to find a homeopath to treat yourself or your patient. With Ebola this might not be so feasible, and if you find there is no other assistance available, continue as described below. Add a pill or two of the homeopathic remedy found to have the most similar symptoms to a plastic cup filled with water (tap or mineral water). Starting with Crotalus Horridus 30C is probably the best idea. Stir the cup with a plastic spoon until the pills dissolve. With the spoon, place some drops of the remedy on the patient’s tongue. How often the remedy is taken depends on the severity of symptoms. If they are very severe, give the remedy every half hour until improvement is observed, then repeat it every hour. This can be reduced to once or twice a day, depending on improvement. If no improvement is observed after 24 hours, go to the next homeopathic remedy on the list above.
What to Do In Case Homeopathic Remedies are Unavailable At present, about 50% to 90% of patients die, even with intensive hospital care. The death rate during the Spanish flu in 1918 was only 5%, but killed from 50 to 100 million people—and in an era with much less international travel to spread infection. Imagine the devastation the 50% – 90% mortality rate of Ebola could produce now. You guessed it: you would be quarantined in your home, on your own. With any epidemic, such as Ebola, bird and swine flu, if you have no other recourse for treatment—no medical assistance available— there is a procedure for making a remedy at home that will keep you alive, although you may have a rough time of it. Vitamins, especially C, will be helpful. You may think the following procedure—developed by the English homeopath Peter Chappell—is a crazy thing to do. But, if you or a loved one is sick with Ebola with the prospect of having one week to live, and no other help is available, you might consider it. Besides, Einstein said that if an idea didn’t seem crazy, it wasn’t worth anything. This procedure is based on a form of therapy related to homeopathy called isopathy (curing a disease with the virulent agent of the same disease), which has proven successful for many ailments. You could check this out. A curious and interesting use of isopathy is that, in some regions of Brazil, if a child is bitten by a snake, the mother will immediately hunt the snake down, cut its head off and apply the stump to the bite wound to cure the child.
How to Make Your Own Ebola Remedy
What you need: 1. A face mask and gloves 2. Two bottles (50 ml up to 500 ml glass or plastic bottles) with caps 3. Clean water (mineral or tap water) 4. An Ebola sample: some spit or other disease product, such as blood, from a person infected with Ebola, or who is suspected sick with it. Any small quantity will do, even a pinhead. 5. An alcoholic liquid, such as whisky, brandy, rum, etc. 6. Half an hour of your time.
Procedure: 1. Fill the bottle with water, leaving about 20% space at the top. 2. Place the Ebola sample in the water in the bottle. 3. Close the top of the bottle with the cap. 4. Hold the bottle and strike it hard against a solid surface, such as a large book, 40 times. 5. Pour out the contents of the bottle. 6. Refill the bottle with water (the fluid remaining on the inside surface of the bottle will serve as the next Ebola sample). 7. Repeat steps 3 to 6 a total of 30 times.
Storage: 1. Pour the bottle solution into another bottle—your stock bottle. 2. Add 10% by volume of the alcoholic liquid (whisky, brandy, etc.) as a preservative. 3. Store in a place away from sunlight and electronic equipment. Using this stock bottle, you can supply the Ebola remedy to as many people you want. With one drop from the stock bottle as an Ebola sample you can produce another stock bottle to give to someone else. Instead of the original Ebola sample you used above to make the original stock bottle, you use a drop from the first stock bottle. This process can be carried out ad infinitum, supplying a whole city, etc., if needed. Taking Your Home-Made Ebola Remedy
For prevention: 1. Place a teaspoonful of your Ebola remedy from the stock bottle into a cup filled with water. 2. Stir the water five times with a disposable spoon or stick. 3. Take a sip from the cup. 4. During the epidemic, take a sip once or twice a day, stirring five times before taking the sip. 5. Refill the cup as needed after striking the stock bottle against a hard surface five times. If you are sick with Ebola: 1. Place a teaspoonful of the Ebola remedy from your stock bottle into a cup filled with water. 2. Stir the water five times with a disposable spoon or stick. 3. Take a sip every 15 minutes, stirring five times each time until you notice improvement, then stop. 4. On improving, you can ease off and take the remedy every hour or so, again stirring five times before taking the remedy each time. 5. Refill the cup as needed after striking the stock bottle against a hard surface five times. Post treatment Other problems may appear some time after being afflicted with Ebola. Among these are: testicle inflammation, joint pains, muscle pains, skin peeling, hair loss, light sensitivity, eye inflammation, even blindness. Again, the best thing to do is find a homeopathic professional to treat you. Otherwise, the homeopathic remedy Mercurius Solubilis 200C can be useful for inflammations. You could take one pill a day for a few days and then stop. For exhaustion you could take the remedy Carbo Vegetabilis 200C once. Arnica 200C once a day for some days will also be useful. Leave some hours between taking different homeopathic remedies. Phosphorus 200C taken once a day for a few days can be useful for eye problems.
How to Ingest Homeopathic Remedies
There should be no taste in your mouth on taking a homeopathic remedy. Thus, you should not eat or drink anything (besides water) at least fifteen minutes before and after taking it. This also applies to smoking. Nor should there be any strong odor, such as from perfume, incense, etc. present in the room. You can take a homeopathic remedy any time of the day or night, keeping these points in mind. Avoid touching a pill with your fingers as your energy field can neutralize the information carried. Use the remedy container cap instead, or some other means, to throw a pill onto your tongue. Allow the remedy to dissolve on your tongue as if it were a piece of candy (actually it is in a way, since it consists of milk sugar, i.e., lactose, plus a trace of alcohol, and curative information). Liquid remedies are dripped onto the tongue. Wait at least ten minutes before eating or drinking anything besides water. Afterwards you can eat and drink as you normally do.
Many people have asked me: ”How is it possible that such a tiny pill can bring about such a great improvement in such a short time?” And it is true. Homeopathic pills are usually quite small—about 1 mm or 1/32 inch in diameter, which makes it hard to believe they could do anything, especially when people are told that they contain no chemicals—only energy or information that stimulates the body to cure itself. The size of a pill and its lack of chemical drugs constitute a GREAT leap of faith for some and an object of sneering ridicule for others, who consider the effects to be of a placebo nature. However, these pills have worked for more than two centuries on babies, pets, livestock and wild animals—even plants—so where the placebo idea might fit into this picture would be hard to explain, except for someone with ingrown fixed ideas. Therefore, please remember that you only need to take one single pill, just one, not all the pills in the container, as some patients have done. Taking all the pills would have the same effect as taking one pill, so you might as well save the rest for another occasion. Homeopathic remedies do not expire, even though an expiry date is printed on the container. This is due to the general ignorance regarding homeopathy of the medical authorities who regulate expiry dates. Two hundred year old pills found stowed away in a forgotten drawer have worked perfectly well. The price of a homeopathic pill is quite affordable, usually much less than 5 cents. Since you will only need one or two pills to effect a cure, you can understand that such remedies are not economically attractive to Big Pharma. Expensive and toxic drugs that you have to take every day are the preferred medicines of Big Pharma.
I hope you will not need to apply the information presented in this article, but if you do, it could save your life and that of a loved one. With dangerous large-scale epidemics, such as Ebola could turn out to be, the medical establishment is more often than not caught unprepared, as vaccines and/or successful treatment take time to develop and the logistics involved in distribution can be insurmountable. Therefore, you may be left to your own devices, in which case alternative self-treatment, in particular, homeopathy, would be your only hope of survival.
