Re: Good medicine: homeopathy
Those who criticise and reject homeopathy show their ignorance of modern science of polymers and submolecular physics, and, sadly, appear to be proud of it.
Testing of homeopathics is not as simple and mechanistic as some practitioners of orthodox medicine assume. Randomised double blind placebo controlled trials used to test the pharma products are invalidated by the individuality of response, which is taken into consideration by practitioners of alternative medicine especially homeopathy, yet ignored by orthodox practitioners.
Homeopathy (and other complementary and alternative medical (CAM) systems) is not based on mass medication such as practiced by orthodox medicine; antibiotics, painkillers, and practically all pharma products are as a rule administered irrespective of a possible individual, idiosyncratic action and reaction.
Moreover, homeopathy and other CAM systems do not cater to the disease entity, they cater to a diseased individual. The same individual may be prescribed different remedy for the same complaint several years later. The motivation is that the same person changes his/her personality profile with the passing years and will require different remedy.
Another important consideration is that homeopathy (and other CAM remedies and procedures) are effective in animals. That is perhaps the most remarkable phenomenon and proves wrong the assumption that they are just a placebo effect.
Indeed, one can best see the difference between orthodox and alternative medications in animals; a TV program in Australia showed horses having a beatic and thankful expression in their eyes when administered the appropriate acupuncture treatment and I have seen the healing effect of homeopathics in my cats. When given the choice between plain and vitamin C (sodium ascorbate) containing water, they went for the water with vitamin C.
In contrast to that, chimpanzees and other animals went into a murderous rage after given mind-altering anti-psychotics for humans. Animals react to many medications the same way as humans, and the researchers as a rule admit the causal link between the observed reactions and the tested medications.
There are reams of assays accessible on the Internet dealing with the phenomenon characterised by the keywords of “ignorance, stupidity, arrogance”.
The Swiss Government recently included homeopathy and a number of other alternative medical systems into the national health scheme after testing (the real life efficacy) them and recognising their effectiveness, safety and cost effectiveness. The Swiss Government consists of 8 people (four women and four men) who are not paid any official salary, must have their own independent money-earning capacity and must personally communicate with every Swiss citizen. There is little space for corruption there.
Ignorance is not bliss, yet, sadly, those who reject homeopathy (and other non-orthodox medicines and procedures they haven’t studied and don’t know much about) bragg about their’s in a way little short of outrageous. It is also interesting and telling that they often choose to do it in an unscientific, hostile, threatening, bullying and highly intolerant way. They also try to incite hatred in others urging them to block and destroy alternative and complementary medical systems and their education. Some recently went in the streets to “demonstrate” the perceived “ineffectiveness” of homeopathics by swallowing handfuls of homeopathic pills. Why didn’t they endeavour to demonstrate the effects of orthodox pharma products by swallowing handfuls of orthodox medications and getting multiple vaccines (as they are given to tiny babies) – in one go – as the best and safest way to show their effects? What stopped them from doing it?
As I see it, the real effects of the orthodox pharma products are in being deleteriously active with long lists of reactions, published in product inserts, affecting all organs and many of them resulting in permanent damage and deaths. The term iatrogenesis includes all those modern ills of humanity, the roots of which are in the early childhood vaccines and aggravated by indiscriminate and unscientific administration of antibiotics, antipyretics and other orthodox medications, in a polypharmacy fashion.
Those who criticise homeopathy are obviously unaware that within minutes after taking an appropriate homeopathic remedy one feels euphoria, while after many orthodox medications administered in recommended and prescribed doses people feel either depressed or like going on a hostile and destructive/self destructive rampage. The perpetrators of bizarre murder/suicides (including school shootings) were shown to be on orthodox medications.
One can best see the difference between orthodox and alternative medications in animals; a TV program in Australia showed horses having a beatic and thankful expression in their eyes when administered the appropriate acupuncture treatment and I have seen the healing effect of homeopathics in my cats.
In contrast to that, chimpanzees and other animals went into a murderous rage after given mind-altering anti-psychotics usually given to humans.
Moreover, trials of new pharma products are notoriously known to be knowingly doctored and the statistics manipulated to an extent that no other products would be allowed to be subjected to and still allowed to be mass administered. Patients suffering obvious reactions are not only often not believed but are often blamed for them and accused of deliberately producing them.
Many parents and other carers of babies that became permanently damaged or died after vaccination are rotting in prisons for the crime that someone else had committed by administering those toxic vaccines and, yes, lying about their safety and effectiveness. Their other children are also taken away and adopted, creating another stolen generation of forcefully removed children for which the past governments in Australia and other countries became only recently criticised.
I believe that if the administration of all vaccinations stopped, children’s hospitals would practically immediately be emptied of very young babies and children, most of whom are admitted for vaccine reactions. Long term, we would also see the real extent of damage done by the “active” orthodox medications while witnessing the disappearance of immunoreactive, autoimmune, degenerative, and other “modern” diseases, including mental disorders and dementia; and, behold, autism would miraculously and mysteriously disappear as well.
In the meantime, the editors of BMJ should be praised and thanked for understanding the concept of freedom of speech by publishing both sides of the story.
