Allopathy by comparison to traditional medicine is young. It can be very effective in certain areas but it is the most dangerous medical methodology by far. The third biggest killer in the world today is Iatrogenic – doctor or medical induced – that’s right, Heart disease,Cancer and then Allopathy is what kills people. On a positive note, one of the biggest growth areas in Allopathy is the field of Integrative Medicine.
And within integrative medicine of course you find Homeopathy. We are
all fortunate that the ignorance and prejudice toward Homeopathy is not
shared by most people in the world, and increasingly, is being
discarded by Allopathic doctors, who, after all, do want to heal but are
limited by the materialistic, mechanistic (I would add moralistic and
militaristic) profit and fear driven approach of what is called modern
The simple reality is that Homeopathy will come into its own when there is no longer an antibiotic to fight bacterial infection and we are getting closer to that day. Science/medicine has abused this resource in ways which are criminal and when the day comes when antibiotics are useless, then even the naysayers will turn to Homeopathy. Needs must is often the way that humanity changes course for the better.
There is no doubt that when the body is subject to serious disease the task is greater, whether Homeopathic or Allopathic, and there is no doubt that Allopathy is useful in crisis or mechanistic (when something needs to be surgically repaired) situations, but the point of Homeopathy is always healing. Homeopathy sensibly takes the position that dealing with minor symptoms (as opposed to repressing or removing them which is what Allopathy does) as they arise means that disease does not become major. Studies have shown that people who see a professional Homeopath regularly, and that may be every couple of years or less, experience less serious disease.
Ritalin, used to treat hyperactivity causes the same symptoms in healthy people: Digoxin, used by cardiologists has the same effect in that it causes in healthy people the same symptoms it treats in unhealthy ones. These are but two of a long list.
The difference however is that the Allopathic method is synthetic, and administered in very high doses, and can do harm or cause death while the Homeopathic treatment is gentle, harmless and more effective.
N.B. Homeopathic provings are done by giving healthy people a remedy. Just as something like Ritalin causes the symptoms it is used to treat, in healthy people, so a Homeopathic remedy triggers the symptoms it will be used to treat, in healthy people.
6. Homeopaths refuse to study the research done.
Professional homeopaths study all research carefully and ponder scientific objections carefully as well but the reality is that the science/medical system is mechanistic and materialistic and limited in its nature. It simply is not able to research something like Homeopathy because of the prejudice inherent in its paradigm.
That will change, but until it does, the way science/medicine currently tests runs counter to the philosophy and system on which Homeopathy is founded.
7. Double blind tests show Homeopathy does not work.
Running conventional ‘double blind’ tests on Homeopathic remedies can only ever be partially successful even when it takes into account the basis on which Homeopathy works – and mostly it doesn’t.
However, Homeopathy has been shown to be effective even with some double-blind testing.
8. Hahnemann encouraged enmity between Homeopaths and doctors.
Hahnemann did not seek to encourage enmity; he was horrified by the barbarism of the medicine of this time and would be horrified by a lot of the barbarism of medicine of this time. He looked for an alternative.
In Hahnemann’s day and for the next hundred years or so, ALL homeopaths were also medically trained doctors. Hardly an argument that he encouraged enmity. Such a theory runs counter to the facts and logic regarding those facts.
9. Science/medicine rejects it because it knows it cannot work and science is always right.
a. if rejection were based on supposing something should work most of scientific research would stop tomorrow.
b. categorically saying it cannot work because it does not fit the mechanistic/materialistic paradigm which has trapped science for a few hundred years would have meant that quantum physics would never have developed and neither would the research into cellular biology.
Science/medicine managed to get past its prejudice and ignorance in regard to bacteria – after killing a lot of people – so no doubt it will in time get past its prejudice and ignorance in regard to the Homeopathic process.
Homeopathy does work and it was and is a part of medicine. It is just less a part of medicine because of ignorance, bigotry, the power of the drug companies and the limited paradigm of science/medicine. It really is that simple.
And, if it did work, or rather when science can understand how it works, then science would need to be rewritten. Not all of it, but some of it. There is a place for the mechanistic in science, which is why this website works, but only a fool would think that is all there is to this world. It is patently clear, which is why quantum physics was developed in the first place, that there is far, far, far more to this world than the materialistic and mechanistic.
10. Homeopathy is just a placebo effect.
Medical journals including The Lancet have published results showing that Homeopathy is effective and it most definitely is not just a placebo effect. All medical treatments have a placebo effect, something Allopathy admits and some have a nocebo effect, something Allopathy recognises.
Results are influenced if not prejudiced by the materialistic/mechanistic paradigm which controls and limits science/medicine and therefore limits its ability to understand a medical methodology which is far more advanced.
