Death by Medicine

doctors are often operating in the dark …

“well below half” of the procedures doctors perform and the decisions they make about surgeries, drugs, and tests have been adequately investigated and shown to be effective. The rest are based on a combination of guesswork, theory, and tradition, with a strong dose of marketing by drug and device companies. link

 Make the change to …

Safe, Cheap Medicine.

  • Homeopathy seeks to replace drugs that have severe side effects.
  • It aims to cure, not suppress symptoms.
  • It works toward decreasing a patient’s dependency on drugs.
  • Homeopathic medications are a cheap solution for health systems struggling with crippling drug expenses.
  • Homeopathy doesn’t seek to replace health systems.
  • It cannot replace surgery for injuries and cannot offer life support.
  • Homeopaths recognise conventional medications can be life saving, ie Salbuterol inhalers for acute attacks of asthma (though not without their own concerns).

Deaths and Injuries by Conventional Medicine

Iatrogenic deaths run at 1/4 million deaths per year in the USA, making them the 3rd most common cause of death: 

Iatrogenic disease = 3 largest cause of death in the USA

Iatrogenic disease = #3 cause of death in the USA.  Click to read article.

I suspect we can all name people in our families and extended families who have suffered iatrogenic injury, illness or death.

The surprising thing is the number of deaths and injuries we are prepared to tolerate in order to continue supporting ‘conventional medicine’ as the main medical paradigm, in its current form.

How Homeopathy works:

  • A substance that in large doses will cause the symptoms of a disease, can be used in minute doses to relieve the same symptoms,
  • that a substance that will produce very similar symptoms will cure that disease.
  • This is familiar in conventional medicine:
    • the use of cowpox inoculation to treat smallpox.
    • modern medications like Ritalin (which is capable of producing side effects that look a lot like the ADHD it is used to treat).

Homeopathy is:

an approach that utilizes medicines that stimulate the body’s own immune and defense system to initiate the healing process [& it recognises] symptoms are actually efforts of the organism to deal with stress or infection.   link

ie, we raise a fever in response to an infection.  We know this.

Homeopathy is a fact, not a theory.

KEY points:

  1. Homeopathy is a discovery, not a hypothesis, a theory or an invention.
  2. It is a system of medicine developed through observation of what cures, observation of natural laws.
  3. It operates within a set of natural laws, and, as such, is ‘scientific’

Homeopathy is not a new discovery:

The idea of a schism of two distinctly opposed and separate medical methods is not an accurate one:

  • Homeopathy is integrated into many state health systems worldwide link.
  • It is Europe’s #1 Alternative for Doctors.
  • ie,”60 percent of [Scottish] doctors’ surgeries prescribe homeopathic or herbal remedies” link.
  • About 20 per cent of doctors in Scotland have basic homeopathic training compared with one per cent 15 years ago. link
  • Doctors such as Constantine Hering were converted to homeopathy whilst trying to debunk it.
  • George Vithoulkas trains many medical doctors in homeopathy every year:

Every year, during the summer months, groups of doctors from various countries gather to be trained at the Academy. They come from Germany, Italy, Sweden, Norway, United Kingdom, Russia, the U.S.A., Canada, Austria, Japan, India, Mexico, Brazil, Greece etc.
12.000 medical doctors and homeopathic practitioners from 33 countries have been trained in the International Academy of Classical Homeopathy.

 

Doctors are not necessarily averse to or sceptical of homeopathy:

“according to an article in the British Medical Journal, 42% of British physicians surveyed refer patients to homeopathic physicians. [1]. Another survey of British physicians discovered that 80% of recent graduates wanted training in either homeopathy, acupuncture, or hypnosis. [2]” 

 

History of Homeopathy

Homeopathy was developed initially by (Dr and chemist) Samuel Hahnemann, who recognised that cinchona bark, successfully used to treat malarial fevers, had the ability to produce symptoms very like malarial fever.    He was familiar with the ideas of Hippocrates and others.  He recognised that some medicines used in high doses, cured the original disease, but created dangerous side effects. He began to experiment with how low a dose he could use to achieve cure (ie, in the use of mercury, etc).  He also began to test (in himself and volunteers) many substances to see which symptoms they could produce (temporarily) in healthy people and if they would then cure the same symptoms in the sick.

 

Conclusion
Conventional medicine’s reliance on drugs that are often unproven and have to be taken continually to suppress symptoms or bear no relationship to the symptoms of the illness at all, has hardly proven successful in curing.  Ill health abounds, Effectiveness gaps are plentiful and, as we saw above, there is usually an undesirable payback to conventional drugs.
Homeopathy was developed to overcome these problems.  It has the capacity to do so.  One of its obvious places is within the medical system as an integrated service. This would give patients the choice of treatment without side effects and would give doctors the opportunity to effectively treat patients with disorders that cannot currently be treated or cured.
