Presenting 55 Facts About Homeopathy

November 2, 2009

 By Louise Mclean, LCCH MHMA, Editor, Zeus Homoeopathy News

How Homeopathy Works

FACT 1:  Hippocrates ‘The Father of Medicine’ of Ancient Greece said there were two Laws of Healing:  The Law of Opposites and the Law of Similars.  Homeopathy treats the patient with medicines using the Law of Similars, orthodox medicine uses the Law of Opposites, e.g. antibiotics, anti-inflammatories, anti-convulsants, anti-hypertensives,

anti-depressants, anti-psychotics.

FACT 2:  Homeopathic theories are based on fixed principles of the Laws of Nature – unlike medical theories which are constantly changing! 

FACT 3:  Homeopathy is an evidence-based, empirical medicine.

FACT 4:  Homeopathy is both an art and a science.

FACT 5:  The Homeopathic PROVINGS of medicines are a more scientific method of testing than the orthodox model of RCTs or double blind trials.

FACT 6:  Homeopathic medicine awakens and stimulates the body’s own curative powers.  The potentised remedy acts as a catalyst to set healing into motion. 

FACT 7:  Homeopathic medicines work by communicating a current/pattern/frequency of energy via the whole human body to jump start the body’s own inherent healing mechanisms. 

FACT 8:  Homeopathy assists the body to heal itself, to overcome an illness which brings the patient to a HIGHER level of health.  Orthodox medicine suppresses the illness, bringing the patient to a lower level of health.

FACT 9:  The homeopathic practitioner endeavours to search for and treat the CAUSE of the disease in order to heal the EFFECT.

FACT 10:  Outcomes of homeopathic treatment are measured by the LONG TERM  curative effects of prescribing and complete eradication of the disease state.

FACT 11:  The homeopathic practitioner treats the WHOLE PERSON, believing all symptoms are interrelated and seeks to select a medicine which most closely covers them all.

FACT 12:  Homeopathy works FAST in acute illnesses, slower in chronic illness.

FACT 13:  Homeopathic medicine has been proven extremely effective in Epidemics such as cholera, typhoid, diptheria, yellow fever, polio and influenza and were used extensively in 19th century.  http://www.whale.to/v/winston.html

 

 

Homeopathic Medicines

FACT 14:  Homeopathic remedies are cheap.

FACT 15.  Pharmaceutical medicines are expensive.

FACT 16:  Homeopathy is the 2nd most popular and widely used medicine in the world.

FACT 17:  There are more than 4,000 homeopathic medicines.

FACT 18: Homeopathic medicines have no toxic side-effects.

FACT 19: Homeopathic medicines are NON-ADDICTIVE.

FACT 20:  In 200 years, there has never been a single homeopathic medicine recalled, unlike pharmaceutical medicines.

FACT 21:  Every true homeopathic medicine is made using ONE SUBSTANCE – whether plant, mineral, metal, etc. The exact substance is known, unlike most modern drugs where we are rarely informed of the ingredients.

FACT 22:  Any remedy up to a 12c or a 24x potency still contains the original molecules of the substance and this is known as Avogadro’s number. 

FACT 23:  Every Patient is Unique so homeopathic medicines are individualised.

FACT 24:  Homeopaths treat genetic illness, tracing its origins to 6 main genetic causes or ‘miasms’: Tuberculosis, Syphilis, Gonorrhoea, Psora (scabies), Cancer, Leprosy.

FACT 25:  High fevers will drop within minutes after taking the homeopathic medicine Belladonna and Aconite.

FACT 26:  There are thousands of homeopathic books, available at specialist outlets, not sold in the high street.

 

Homeopathic Hospitals

FACT 27:  There are 5 homeopathic hospitals in the UK – in London, Tunbridge Wells, Bristol, Liverpool and Glasgow.  They cost the NHS under £10 million a year compared to the £100 billion for the total annual NHS budget for 2008! 

FACT 28:  At one of the earliest debates on the NHS Act of 1948 the Government pledged that homoeopathy would continue to be available on the NHS, as long as there were “patients wishing to receive it and doctors willing to provide it”. 

FACT 29:  There is a campaign by certain UK Professors to oust homeopathy completely from the NHS http://www.timesonline.co.uk/tol/life_and_style/health/article1827553.ece

and in 2007 they organised a document on NHS headed paper to be sent to all Primary Care Trusts telling managers not to refer patients to the homeopathic hospitals.  http://dcscience.net/homeopathy_paper_for_nhs_commissioners.pdf

FACT 30:  The Homeopathic Hospitals are clean, with friendly, well informed staff. The patients are generally pleased with their treatment unlike many orthodox National Health Service hospitals.

FACT 31:  The chances of contracting MRSA or C. Difficile at a Homeopathic Hospital are extremely rare.

FACT 32:  Unlike orthodox medicine, where the side-effects of pharmaceutical medicines bill for negligence claims can run into millions, one UK leading insurance company reported only ‘a couple’ of claims against homeopaths in a ten year period!  Hence insurance cover for homeopathy is cheap reflecting low risk.

 

 

Orthodox Medicine Opposing Homeopathy

FACT 33:  In the United States in the early 1900s there were 22 homeopathic medical schools and over 100 homeopathic hospitals, 60 orphanages and old people’s homes and 1,000+ homeopathic pharmacies.  

FACT 34:  Members of the American Medical Association had great animosity towards homeopathy after its formation in 1847 and it was decided to purge all local medical societies of physicians who were homeopaths. 

FACT 35:  Big Pharma does not want the Public to find out how well homeopathy works!

Scientific Studies

FACT 36:  In 2005 World Health Organisation brought out a draft report which showed homeopathy was beneficial causing Big Pharma to panic and the Lancet to bring out an editorial entitled ‘The End of Homeopathy’.

FACT 37:  In 2005 the Lancet tried to destroy homeopathy but were only looking at 8 inconclusive trials out of 110 of which 102 were positive.  This was a fraudulent analysis.

“The meta-analysis at the centre of the controversy is based on 110 placebo-controlled clinical trials of homeopathy and 110 clinical trials of allopathy (conventional medicine), which are said to be matched. These were reduced to 21 trials of homeopathy and 9 of conventional medicine of ‘higher quality’ and further reduced to 8 and 6 trials, respectively, which were ‘larger, higher quality’. The final analysis which concluded that ‘the clinical effects of homoeopathy are placebo effects’ was based on just the eight ‘larger, higher quality’ clinical trials of homeopathy. The Lancet’s press release did not mention this, instead giving the impression that the conclusions were based on all 110 trials.”

http://www.pubmedcentral.nih.gov/articlerender.fcgi?artid=1375230

FACT 38:  There have been many clinical trials that prove homeopathy works.  In the past 24 years there have been more than 180 controlled, and 118 randomized, trials into homeopathy, which were analysed by four separate meta-analyses.  In each case, the researchers concluded that the benefits of homeopathy went far beyond that which could be explained purely by the placebo effect.

FACT 39:  The Bristol Homeopathic Hospital carried out a study published in November 2005 of 6500 patients receiving homeopathic treatment.  There was an overall improvement in health of 70% of them.  http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/england/bristol/4454856.stm 

FACT 40:  Homeopathy can never be properly tested through double blind randomised trials because each prescription is individualised as every patient is unique.  Therefore 10 people with arthritis, for example, may all need a different homeopathic medicine.

FACT 41:  Homeopathic medicines are not tested on animals.

FACT 42:  Homeopathic medicines work even better on animals and babies than on adults, proving this cannot be placebo effect.

FACT 43:  Homeopathy is safe for women to take while pregnant and safe for old people.

FACT 44:  Scientists agree that if and when homeopathy is accepted by the scientific community it will turn established science on its head.

Homeopathic Practitioners

FACT 45:  Homeopathic Practitioners train for 4 years in Anatomy and Physiology, as well as Pathology and Disease, Materia Medica, Homeopathic Philosophy and study of the Homeopathic Repertory. 

FACT 46:  Most homeopaths treat patients who have been referred to them by word of mouth.  Most patients seek out homeopathy because conventional treatment has not benefitted them or because it poses too great a risk of side-effects.

FACT 47:  The homeopathic community has thousands, even millions, of written case notes that demonstrate the positive benefits of their treatment. Some homeopaths have video proof of their patients before and after treatment.

FACT 48:  Homeopaths charge patients an average of £50 an hour. Specialist doctors can charge up to £200 or more.

Popularity of Homeopathy

FACT 49:  The popularity of homeopathy has grown in the past 30 years, its revival entirely through word of mouth and estimated to be growing at more than 20% a year the world over!

FACT 50:  Hundreds of famous people throughout the past 200 years have enjoyed the benefits of homeopathic medicine.  www.homeopathicrevolution.com

FACT 51:  The aristocratic patronage of homeopathy in the UK extended well into the 1940s and beyond can be easily demonstrated.  In the Homeopathic Medical Directories there are lists of patrons of the dispensaries and hospitals. They read like an extract from Burke’s or Debrett’s. 

FACT 52:  The Royal Families of Europe use homeopathic medicine and Queen Elizabeth II of England never travels anywhere without her homeopathic vials of medicine.

FACT 53:  Homeopathy is practised nowadays in countries all over the world.  In India there are 100 homeopathic medical schools and around 250,000 homeopathic doctors! 

FACT 54:  In a recent Global TGI survey where people were asked whether they trust homeopathy the following percentages of people living in urban areas said YES:  62% in India, 58% Brazil, 53% Saudi Arabia, Chile 49%, United Arab Emirates 49%, France 40%, South Africa 35%, Russia 28%, Germany 27%, Argentina 25%, Hungary 25%, USA 18%, UK 15%. http://www.tgisurveys.com/documents/TGIbarometerhomeopathy_Jan08.pdf

FACT 55: The media as a whole has been unwilling to air a defence of the efficacy of homeopathy and the validity of this 250 year old profession.

Nobel Prize winner reports effects of homeopathic dilutions

October 25, 2009
In a recent study Professor Luc Montagnier, a French virologist who co-discovered HIV and who won the Nobel Prize in 2008, and his team report the results of a series of rigorous experiments investigating the electromagnetic properties of highly-diluted biological samples.
 

The study demonstrates that some bacterial DNA sequences are able to induce electromagnetic waves at high aqueous dilutions. It appears to be a resonance phenomenon triggered by the ambient electromagnetic background of very low frequency waves. The researchers used aqueous solutions that were agitated and serially diluted (the researchers note that the solutions were ‘strongly agitated’ and that this step was ‘critical for the generation of signals’). In other words homeopathic potencies, although the word ‘homeopathy’ is not mentioned in the article.  

The researchers found that pathogenic bacteria and viruses show a distinct electromagnetic signature at dilutions ranging from 10^-5 to 10^-12 (corresponding to 5D to 12D) and that small DNA fragments (responsible for pathogenicity) were solely accountable for the electromagnetic signal. The researchers also noted that one experiment found significant effects from dilutions as high as 10^-18 (equivalent to 18D).  The electromagnetic signature changed with dilution levels but was unaffected by the initial concentration and remained even after the remaining DNA fragments were destroyed by chemical agents.

They observed that the electromagnetic signal was destroyed by heating or freezing the sample. Also, a ‘cross-talk’ effect was found whereby a negative sample inhibits the positive signal in another sample if they are left together overnight in a shielded container. The researchers propose that specific aqueous nanostructures form in the samples during the dilution process and are responsible for the electromagnetic effects measured.

The researchers also detected the same electromagnetic signals in the plasma and in the DNA extracted from the plasma of patients suffering from Alzheimer disease, Parkinson disease, multiple sclerosis, and rheumatoid arthritis.

This study is an important contribution to the growing evidence base in fundamental research with direct relevance to homeopathy.

What the doctor gives me is safe, right?

October 19, 2009

Those people who delight in attacking homeopathy as being “just water” or “the placebo effect” usually end by demanding more double-blind trials of homeopathic remedies. They point to the ‘rigorous’ trials undergone by modern drugs before they are licensed, and claim this protects the public from quacks who might otherwise sell them worthless remedies.

The trouble is, the whole field of medical trials is full of deception: deception in how the trial is set up, deception in the selection of patients for the trial’, deception in the way the trials are carried out, deception in the way the results are recorded, deception in what is selected for publication (only ‘good’ results make it to publication, very often)….I could go on and on.

And now,  Marcia Angell MD, a former editor of the respected publication the New England Journal of Medicine has spoken out about the quality of clinical research that is carried out nowadays:

“It is simply no longer possible to believe much of the clinical research that is published, or to rely on the judgment of trusted physicians or authoritative medical guidelines. I take no pleasure in this conclusion, which I reached slowly and reluctantly over my two decades as an editor of The New England Journal of Medicine.”

~Marcia Angell MD, a well-known, respected physician, long-time editor of NEJM.

No wonder modern drugs cause so many unpleasant side-effects, illness and even death!

How safe is conventional medicine?

October 10, 2009

The Times newspaper reports today on the numbers of people in hospital because of adverse effects from the medication they have been given. Over 95,000 people are affected in this way.

Thankfully, with homeopathy you won’t run the risk of being poisoned in this way!

Homeopathic vaccination: a resounding success in Cuba

September 29, 2009

Authorities in Cuba have successfully used a homeopathic remedy as prevention against leptospirosis, a serious, sometimes deadly disease, which is spread by rats, particularly in flooded areas. During the rainy season each autumn, when hurricanes contribute to widespread flooding, Cuba has been used to outbreaks of leptospirosis in the population, and up till now has tried to protect the population by the use of vaccination. However, this is both difficult and costly, and not available for all the population at risk from contaminated water. It was therefore decided to try a preventive treatment using homeopathic remedies and Bach Flower remedies, and these were administered in 2 doses, approximately a week apart to about 2.4 million people.

Results exceeded expectations. The number of deaths fell dramatically and cases remained at an all-time low, an outcome which was even better than that seen among the vaccinated population in previous years.

This example could be repeated for other serious epidemic diseases, and deserves to be investigated further. Read about it at:

UK schoolgirl dies after cancer vaccine

September 28, 2009

The new Cervarix vaccine (like its counterpart – Gardasil – in the US) is not without some very nasty side effects. It now appears that a 14-year-old schoolgirl has collapsed and died shortly after receiving the vaccine. Full story on the BBC website:

http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/uk/8279656.stm

What is not known is how many girls have been taken ill after receiving this vaccine, nor what the long-term effects may be.
