He did not disallow you to wash your mouth or rinse with water a few minutes after that, did he? So flimsy a ground to dishonor a system! Everyday thousnads of people across world die from side effects of allopathic medicines, many of them prescribed without any valid ground.
I am practicing homeopathy in India for last 32 years and never seen less than 100 patients a day (no elaborate paperwork needed here for insurance). During my days as a government doc I even attended 300 patients a day (don’t faint). Many of them of minor illnesses, but many would certainly haver eceived antibiotics and other ‘life saving’ drugs if they attended any allopathic clinic anywhere in the world. Fad of and sceptical myself that we’re curing only by placebo effects and our long and compassionate conversation with patients, I took it from the beginning to work the opposite way.Skill to diagnose quickly came from my allopathic teachers, huge patient load, and working in rural areas with no scope of lab investigation. Now I am practicing in urban area, cater more patients than most of allopathic MDs and write far fewer lab tests. Need to refer only few patients for allopathic care. And I am satisfied to my core that it is not the compassionate talks or placebo effect that bring more than 100 people a day to my clinic. Not that I have not used allopathic medicine for myself or my family ever, but those occasions are only a few till date, because every system had its limitation. But why should we be fanatic to discard the obvious? Only for money? Or loosing our money and common sense in the face of constant miligning by some people with vested interest? Many allopathic doctors also consults me or refer patients to me, I salute them for their open mindedness.
The Australian government issued a “report” on homeopathy that asserted that there was no evidence that homeopathic medicines were effective for any condition. However, recent evidence has uncovered the fact that the first draft of this report by a respected group of researchers found some high-quality research showing evidence for homeopathy, but this initial report was rejected by government’s committee which was led by a known skeptic of homeopathy. Then, a new report by a different group of researchers was created with a highly biased anti-homeopathy evaluation. The Chairperson was asked to resign because he lied to the government by not acknowledging a serious conflict of interest he had in his opposition to homeopathy, but he still attended various hearings despite such actions being questionably ethical.
Even the highly prestigious Cochrane Commission in Australia acknowledged many studies published in leading conventional medical journals that showed benefits from homeopathic medicines.

I have benefitted from homeopathy for my long standing throat problem. After an allopathic E&T specialist told me that allopathic treatment has ruined my throat by wrongly removing my tonsils. He advised me to try homeopathic treatment and it worked.
Western media has always done propoganda against homeopathic otherwise big allopathic companies will collapse. Homeopathy has cured many infections in me when allopathy failed…not one time, many many times and in my family also. Like I’m septic tonsillitis, jaundice, etc…the allopathic doctors (who were HOD of ENT, and Gastroenterologist) were really surprised and shock to find how homeopathy cured in extreme short duration of time.
It is very deep politics,,, about Homoeopathy,it is true that it proved on healthy human being,other pathy could not do so.If a medicine proved on lower classes animal,,(thing that) it effect on human body and cause physiological change but never determined in mental change.(In human patient) disease effect not only human body but also mind obviousl. So treat a patient completel, treat his/her mind equally,which never possible in other pathy except Homoeopathy.Because it remedy prepared after proved on healthy human being.
There is more recently in favor of homeopathy and I applause about the unexplained concept of Placebo effect. This would need special studies. Near Toulouse, in France, there is a Lab with a group of Engineers in Electronic working on something unexplained but really effective : “Bio-Photonic Bridges” applied on different schemes. The most successfull at the moment is on the topic of the Lyme desease. But other aspects need to be more studied, like the property of the water in 8 kHz excitation. In homeopaty, what is important is not the suggar or the dillution : this is the magnetic structure of the water mole. All living species are concerned in the field of investigation of the Biophotonic Bridges. Products from the bees can be tested in a mounting, showing their capacity to cure human beings. Item for acupuncture, homéopathy, Essential Oils, etc. The meaning of the recorded pictures on the screen should be discuss with experts, but why to bring new scientific elements to the discussion when the Regulatory Authority in Health domain is not ready to visit the labs and to allow some fundings for more information on the Life concept (plants, animals, human beings) ?
Every morning I imbibe a potent homeopathic elixir. I drink a glass of New York City tap water.
No, it is NOT ANECDOTAL.
By the end of 2014, 189 randomised controlled trials of homeopathy on 100 different medical conditions had been published in peer-reviewed journals. Of these, 104 papers were placebo-controlled and were eligible for detailed review:
41% were positive (43 trials) – finding that homeopathy was effective
5% were negative (5 trials) – finding that homeopathy was ineffective
54% were inconclusive (56 trials)
How does this compare with evidence for conventional medicine?
An analysis of 1016 systematic reviews of RCTs of conventional medicine had strikingly similar findings:
44% were positive – the treatments were likely to be beneficial
7% were negative – the treatments were likely to be harmful
49% were inconclusive – the evidence did not support either benefit or harm.
Although the percentages of positive, negative and inconclusive results are similar in homeopathy and conventional medicine, it is important to recognise a vast difference in the quantity of research carried out; chart A represents 189 individual trials on homeopathy, whereas chart B represents 1016 reviews on conventional medicine, each analysing multiple trials.
This highlights the need for more research in homeopathy, particularly large-scale high quality repetitions of the most promising positive studies.
In the U.S., homeopathy advocacy can be more subtle. Consulting a specialist at the U of Md Baltimore about peripheral neuropathy, I was told she didn’t have any clues to its source, but some of her patients reported benefits from an OTC pill, which turns out to be a homeopathic “remedy”: box instructions: put a few (dextrose) pills under your tongue when you go to bed. Cavities, anyone? Where’s “First, do no harm”?
If homeopathic product labeling listed ingredient concentrations rather than dilutions the stupidity of these products would be explicit.
For example, “Arnica 0%”.
Even better would be a requirement that if the ingredient in question is undetectable, as above, then it could not be listed as transan ingredient at all.
An appropriate product label would transparently read, for example, “Contains water 100%”.
Such labeling would differ from current homeopathic labeling only in that it would not list how the 0% arnica or 100% water solutions were derived, i.e., their histories, but only what is actually in the container, what the consumer purchased.
This is a wonderful idea. If the FDA regulated these as foods or drugs, it could be required. Current policy, though, doesn’t seem to do so. Rather than the administration whose campaign was AMA-supported redefining NIH’s research on Complementary and Alternative Medicine as “Integrative Medicine,” regulating supplements and “remedies” this way would have benefited the public substantially. But I guess that would be anti-business and pro-Big Government.
All medicine has a placebo effect. However, since Homeopathic medicine demonstrates effect on plants, animals, babies, unconscious animals and humans and on humans utterly convinced it CANNOT work, then, pretty clearly, there is more than placebo at work.
Oh, I’d so much like to see the good-quality studies showing this. Sadly, there aren’t any, are there, Ms Ross?
Have you bothered to look or do you prefer to come from a place of prejudice and ignorance? There are not as many good quality studies because most research is funded by the pharmaceutical industry who has no interest. But yes, they are there. If your prejudice is too great to search through the Homeopathy Research Institute, then just work your way through NCBI. Pigs might fly I suspect. You know nothing but your own prejudice.
Quote: The following is an extract from an article entitled “Homeopathy In Influenza- A Chorus Of Fifty In Harmony” by W. A. Dewey, MD that appeared in the Journal of the American Institute of Homeopathy in 1920.
Dean W. A. Pearson of Philadelphia collected 26,795 cases of influenza treated by homeopathic physicians with a mortality of 1.05%, while the average old school mortality is 30%.
Thirty physicians in Connecticut responded to my request for data. They reported 6,602 cases with 55 deaths, which is less than 1%. In the transport service I had 81 cases on the way over. All recovered and were landed. Every man received homeopathic treatment. One ship lost 31 on the way. H. A. Roberts, MD, Derby, Connecticut.
In a plant of 8,000 workers we had only one death. The patients were not drugged to death. Gelsemium was practically the only remedy used. We used no aspirin and no vaccines. -Frank Wieland, MD, Chicago.
I did not lose a single case of influenza; my death rate in the pneumonias was 2.1%. The salycilates, including aspirin and quinine, were almost the sole standbys of the old school and it was a common thing to hear them speaking of losing 60% of their pneumonias.-Dudley A. Williams, MD, Providence, Rhode Island.
Clearly idiots for putting Homeopathic pillules in the ear. They are only ever taken dissolved under the tongue or dissolved in water before drinking. Sorry, but pillules in the ear is NOT homeopathic medicine.
And since Homeopathy has been healing and curing for more than two centuries, and has been practised for centuries by doctors also qualified in Allopathic medicine, pretty clearly, it works.
“healing and curing for more than two centuries”
And do you have any interobjective evidence for that statement? Because that is damm broad. Any homeopathy related cancer-curing, maybe?
Don’t ask for evidence from anyone promoting homeopathy. There is none, as she knows. It’s a con to extract all their money from vulnerable, desperate people.
There is a sort of evidence, as we all know. However, it’s anecdotal evidence. Because we are so easily convinced by a good story, and by firsthand and even secondhand personal testimony, it’s pretty potent. There’s also lots of it, whereas putting together controlled studies takes effort, expertise, funding, and the conviction that yet another study showing the these are placebo effects is more worth doing than other research that’s crying to be performed. Part of that calculus has to be the consideration of whether yet another “failure to show any advantage” is going to make a difference to people who are willing to try or recommend homeopathy.
The mere fact that Homeopathic medicine has survived and thrived for more than two centuries is not in the least damn broad.
Until the early 20th century when the pharmacists ganged up on Homeopathic medicine for intruding into its profits, there were Homeopathic hospitals throughout the US, UK, Europe and elsewhere. Homeopathy is still practised in those countries and continues to thrive with massive growth rates in India, China and South America. Why? Because it works and unlike allopathic medications does not kill people or cripple economies.
And given the huge failure rate of Allopathic medicine in curing Cancer you are being a tad hypocritical. You are also revealing you know zip about Homeopathy which treats the individual, not the disease. The body can cure anything in the right circumstances.
Here are few studies showing clinical results on the brain and other cancers. Dr Banerji is renowned for his method describe in his book :
