Homeopathy is B0ll0ks!

Look what I got sent, I didn't subscribe to it:

Well there is nothing wrong in believing in B0llocks in itself. But the minute people start mixing **** and medical treatment things can get very dangerous. People can and do die.
Homoeopathy is not dangerous. it is nonsense. Drinking a homoeopathy potion is no different from drinking a glass of water. Because it is a glass of water. Swallowing a bunch of homoeopathy tablets is no different from swallowing a hand full chalk or sugar, or what ever else they used as the base. Because the base is all that is in there.

It gets dangerous because these days a lot of fatal conditions are easily curable when caught early. Homoeopathy stands in the way of treating such conditions early.

Homoeopathy, and the rest of that crap are very dangerous and when the state funds them it sends a message that such things are credible.

Re: Homeopathy is B0ll0ks!

Covered wagon medicine show
Take you to the place where the healing flows
Weak in spirit, we got the juice
Won't save your soul, it'll shine your shoes
Treated king to kangaroo
Santa Fe to Timbuktu
Don't be fooled by imitation
This is the stuff that cured a nation

In India we're all the rave
Discovered that it's great as aftershave
Dropped in the sea, just off Japan
Swapped 20 bottles for an aqua-walkman
Immunity from ridicule
Improves your brains if you're a fool
And I read in the Middle East, they traded some for a hostage release
Now if you're bald it'll give you hair
If you got straight trousers it'll give you flares
Feeling up, you'll get depressed
Out of style, here's a brand new dress

Always Reminded of Max and Paddy, recommending homophobic remedies to the waitress being held (unknown to them) at gunpoint. Max and Paddies Road to Nowhere, very funny. Our Homeopathic shop owner smokes like a chimney. Balance is the key, pills and powders are easy to create an unbalance. Real food makes unbalance harder. You have to eat a lot of oranges to overdose on vitamin C. Not impossible, but difficult.
Your G.P. should be the one to ask; I agree with you Abs some serious fraud going on in Homeopathic medicine.

Not sure how you received that email if you didn't agree with the Petition.  Only people who signed the Petition and want to Save the Glasgow Homeopathic Hospital, would have received that email with the news update.

Re: Homeopathy is B0ll0ks!

I read this with great interest. I firmly believe in homeopathy. But the thing is you need to find the right one! I have a homeopath as my doctor for three months now and I can't sing anything but praises for her. Beginning of the year I was suffering sick all the time,went to the Doctor 8 times in two months,and was out each time in less than 10 minutes with a prescription of antibiotics. I decided to try homeopathy as my last option. I am happy I did. On my first visit she took two hours for me,listening to my symptoms,and explaining to me exactly what is wrong with me. She was worried about certain things and immediately referred me to specialist. I am on treatment by her and within 2 days I could feel a huge difference,3 months down the line and I haven't been sick once.
I agree with what has been said you need to find a balance and definitely each one has to find what works best for their body and health.

Re: Homeopathy is B0ll0ks!

That's wonderful and there are so many thousands of other people who tell the same story of how homeopathy helped them, when conventional medicine couldn't.

Nonsense is easy to ignore, why don't you just do that if homeopathy does not suit you?

Re: Homeopathy is B0ll0ks!

I was given some homeopathic teething 'pills' for my son when he was small . I don't think that they really helped apart from the chalky texture was mildly soothing.

I don't know much about homeopathy , but I will agree that in some cases it cam be detrimental. Some years ago now , I knew a lady who was very keep on homeopathy , to the extent that she refused to allow her baby to be vaccinated at all by the doctor , instead she opted to have a homeopathic solution . I was very anxious for the baby as she was moving to a rural area and knowing that tetenus can be an awful illness and can be contacted from all manner of things I did try to persuade her that she should at least get the child a tetenus vaccination , other people also tried to tell her the same but as you can imagine she stuck to her beliefs and the child had no vaccinations what ever.
I have no idea what happened to them as when they moved home nobody ever heard from them again !

Here are times when conventional medicine is best , I would be worried about the use of homeopathy on , as Abdul has mentioned ,things like  cancers .
I am not saying that it does not have a place , it clearly does as many people feel reassured after they have had homeopathic treatments , it's not for me , I prefer conventional medicine , but , I do know that some herbalism is very good.
I need Minnie to explain the difference between herbalism and homeopathy to me , as I'm not sure i fully understand the differences.

Re: Homeopathy is B0ll0ks!

Read about homeopathic remedies and I think most would agree, it is, as Abs had said, utter nonsense.  To make a sick child rely on it when ill with serious infections is tantamount to child abuse.  We knew a couple whose kid suffered an ear infection for 3 months.  That's a very painful disease.  The mother went for homeopathy, which is utter ****, as Abs says, and the poor kid stayed sick and in terrible pain.  When the parents became ill, they told us at that time . . . they called the doctors who rely on science and real medicine and got antibiotics because they could not take the pain of illness . . . meanwhile their poor kid was forced to go to school and other activities with a bad infection.  It should be illegal, IMO.

Re: Homeopathy is B0ll0ks!

But none of you people have any idea about homeopathy!  You don't know that the course is 4 years long but that it takes about 10 years to be proficient at using it.  You don't know that there are 3,500 homeopathic medicines.  You don't know there are 350,000 homeopathic doctors in India and 40,000 homeopathic doctors in Europe (who are conventional medical doctors that preferred to use homeopathic medicine instead, as they found it superior).  You don't know that Dr. Samuel Hahnemann who invented homeopathy was the first person to trial medicines and that nearly all homeopathic medicines have undergone clinical trials. 
Also, that there are some people, like myself, who have not had a single pharmaceutical or over the counter medicine for many years (22 years in my case) and use homeopathic medicine exclusively for every ailment, too numerous to mention.
All you do is parrot the ignorant skeptics' who write utter nonsense.
Science still has to catch up but there is a vested interest in attacking homeopathy relentlessly and Pharma has much control of the media which is now in the hands of just 5 corporations - did you know that?  In other words its totally controlled.  Pharma knows that if people were to find out how efficacious homeopathy is, they would lose a fortune and they will do ANYTHING to stop that happening.
To that end they employ an army of skeptics to attack homeopathy at every opportunity and people who are against it are promoted in the NHS.

Re: Homeopathy is B0ll0ks!

Louise4011 , I know you havn't had any conventional medicine for many years , but can I ask you this .., if you were very ill with , for example meningitis ... What would you do .. Would you call a homeopathic Doctor or would you accept conventional medicine which might give you a chance of survival ?
I'm not being awkward by asking this , I'm just curious .
