Your medical doctors have their own opinions about various medical issues based on the training they might have had in their medical school. They are best equipped to opine on the subject they have been trained in. They are not trained nor are experienced about the various facets of homeopathy medicines and its complicated philosophy. And sure not exposed to the benefits of Homeopathy.
Your doctors may have certain opinions about homeopathy based on their little knowledge about it or largely based on the ignorance about homeopathy; in both the cases, the opinion is likely to be biased and dangerous for your long term health.
Over the past 200 years, Homeopathy has witnessed attacks from various pharmaceutical company-sponsored activities and events. Usually, regular medical doctors in many parts of the world have limited and biased ideas about homeopathy; which, unfortunately, they pass on to their patients. As a result, knowingly or unknowingly, they become instrumental in depriving patients of the benefits of homeopathy.
Some of the most common comments made by the doctors may be:
- 0.1 Homeopathy does not work.
- 0.2 Homeopathy is a placebo therapy.
- 0.3 Homeopathy is slow acting.
- 0.4 There is no research done in homeopathy.
- 0.5 Homeopathy is a very old system of medicine and it is not relevant today.
- 0.6 Homeopathy works only for functional and emotional diseases.
- 0.7 Homeopathy is not recognized by FDA, WHO, Government, etc.
- 1 Let us see what the doctors would not say about homeopathy
Homeopathy does not work.
It is very easy for anyone to comment negatively about any science. However, it can be considered valid only if the opinion comes either from professional training or personal experience.
Please ask your doctor, if the opinion is based on his or her personal training. Ask, if the doctor has evaluated clinical studies published in homeopathic medical world. It is helpful to find out if such an opinion is arising out of serious experience or just an assumption.
Homeopathy is a placebo therapy.
Well, please find out from your doctors if or not his is informed about a number of clinical trials and animal studies suggesting that homeopathy is not a placebo therapy, but it has proven efficacy in controlled studies. Homeopathy has been proved in its effectiveness in some of the very reputed institutions around the world including government organisations in India.
Homeopathy is slow acting.
In chronic cases, patients usually visit a Homeopath as a last option after everything else fails and having suffered for a long time. Hence it may take time for complete recovery, but this surely doesn’t happen in every illness.In most cases, we (patients and doctors) are more interested in the treatment that is more deep acting and long lasing rather than just fast but short acting.
In criticial life threatening illnesses Homeopathy is known to act even faster than conventional medicine.
There is no research done in homeopathy.
It is true that relatively there is less research in homeopathy, compared to mainstream medicine because of fewer investments from pharmaceutical companies due to lesser margins. There is ongoing research in most of the larger homeopathic institutions, colleges and even in reputed technical institutes of India. Additionally, there is a lot of research in international institutions which shown the proven effectiveness of Homeopathy.
Homeopathy is a very old system of medicine and it is not relevant today.
Well, those who make such a comment may be suggested to make some research into the history of medicine. Homeopathy is amongst the newest medical systems. It is close to 200 years old, introduced by German scientist Dr Samuel Hahnemann as compared to conventional medicine.
Homeopathy works only for functional and emotional diseases.
The experience of thousands of practitioners and millions of patients confirm that homeopathy also works in the cases of physical pathology such as cancers, infertility, intestinal ulcers, fissures, chronic inflammation, infections, skin lesions, arthritis, autoimmune illnesses etc. There are tons of documented cases proving this fact.
Homeopathy is not recognized by FDA, WHO, Government, etc.
The US FDA and similar agencies in most developed countries have approval for homeopathic medicines. The WHO has approved homeopathy and it has been accepted as an alternative system of medicine.
Most of the developed courtiers have recognized homeopathic medical colleges including United States, UK, Germany, India, Australia and other 150 countries.
Many scientists, medical doctors, prime ministers and presidents of many countries, government officials, authors, film stars, teachers, etc. prefer to opt for homeopathy.
Unfortunately, many patients are deprived of the benefits of homeopathy due to their doctor’s ignorance.
The conventional medical view on homeopathy is supported by one or more of the following reasons:
a. Lack of knowledge about homeopathy
b. Lack of experience with homeopathy
c. Unwillingness to review homeopathy
The entire conventional medical training is centred on understanding more and more about the smallest units of the human body. However, in the process, the totalistic philosophy is jeopardized. Conventional doctors are not trained to look around and incorporated the wisdom of another system of medicine.
Let us see what the doctors would not say about homeopathy
Homeopathy can be more effective for your illness.
The conventional doctors are not likely to suggest it due to the reasons stated in the previous comment as above.
Homeopathy is good for all long term diseases.
It is likely that your doctor would not tell you that homeopathic treatment is very good for chronic diseases, in particular. This suggestion may not come due to ignorance, lack of experience or fixed ideas.
For a particular range of diseases, homeopathy is strongly suggested.
A wide range of chronic diseases such as migraine, psoriasis, arthritis, asthma, allergies, ulcerative colitis, warts, urticaria, etc. homeopathy is distinctly effective. But, it is possible that your doctor would not say it.
I take homeopathy treatment for myself and for my family.
Many conventional doctors especially paediatrics in India opt for homeopathic treatment for themselves and for their own family members. Only a few would admit though.
If a doctor or his child suffers from any disease which is not treatable using the conventional treatment; that makes the doctor think of alternatives such as homeopathy. It would be much desirable that the doctors learn to think of homeopathy when even a single patient fails to respond to the conventional medication.
So, how does it matter?
The question is that does it really matter if the conventional doctors do not understand homeopathy? Well, it matters little if a few million doctors in this world turn their backs to homeopathy. What matters more is when:
1. They do not guide their billions of patients who need help for chronic diseases, where the conventional treatment would not work well.
2. When, simply due to ignorance, they discourage those patients who have done better homework about homeopathy, and are willing to opt for it.
It is absolutely unwise to let billions suffer due to the ignorance of a million. Patients suffering from many chronic diseases all over the world remain deprived of the benefits of homeopathy, simply because homeopathy was not taught at conventional medical schools. Misconceptions, ignorance and bias about homeopathy can be detrimental to the patients who are treated by conventional doctors.
Welling Homeopathy has been actively involved in educating society and the conventional medical facility about the goodness of Homeopathy and the benefits that it can offer especially in diseases for which there is no cure in conventional medicines like cancer and infertility.
