Homeopathy Comes Under Attack


Homeopathy Comes Under Attack

Below is an email that I sent to a group called Voices of Young Science, who wish to discredit and essentially destroy the art of homeopathy. I strongly encourage others to send an email to those responsible for this misinformation. Also, here is the link to the BBC article:

Dear Sense About Science / Voices of Young Science,

After receiving a letter from a trusted source, I see that your organization is alarmed by the growth of homeopathy. From the articles I’ve read, your group sees this methodology as nothing more than placebo and should be extinguished.

I can understand that the tools by how things are currently measured can’t always detect the energetic principles that is the basis of how homeopathy works, but in the evolution of science, I find that many ‘laws’ are disproved when better tools of variable detection are available… rendering previous beliefs, theories and laws obsolete.

Your group is in danger of becoming discredited if it continues to pursue this path in attacking homeopathy as a pseudoscience. The undetectable variables that are not traceable with conventional tools do not conclusively mean that the energy of the remedies are ineffective.

If the goal of medicine is to create a more healthy patient, I challenge medicine to answer the larger question of the deleterious effects of pharmaceutical production which poisons our clean air and water. How does conventional medicine justify and rationalize the perpetual side effects of its remedies while destroying the habitat of the patients it is trying to help?

I do understand that homeopathic remedies resemble placebo to those who don’t wish to genuinely explore the methodology of the practice, but as a patient of classical homeopathy now for eight years, I can say that I am healthier and happier now in my forties than I can remember even back to my early twenties (even though I was quite skeptical at the onset of my homeopathic treatment). I haven’t needed (nor desired) to take a pharmaceutical remedy since I’ve started the homeopathic path and feel more free than the vast majority who are struggling to counteract all the side effects of traditional medicine. Homeopathy treats the psyche as well as the symptoms. I have benefited immensely in the treatment of my whole person.

If you are simply agents of the pharmaceutical industry, then you probably will simply delete this email as poppycock. But if you are truly scientists who search for objective knowledge in all things, then I implore you to try to research the science of homeopathy. It is a medicinal art as valid as the art of conventional medicine and worthy of further research in what it can contribute to the overall evolution of medicine.

Sincerely,

  Calculate your Body Mass Index  
  The body mass index (BMI) is a statistical measure of the weight of a person scaled according to height. BMI is calculated as the individual's body weight divided by the square of their height.

BMI is frequently used to assess how much an individual's body weight departs from what is normal or desirable for a person of his or her height. The excess weight or deficiency may, in part, be accounted for by body fat although other factors such as muscularity also affect BMI.
