Media is reporting that Homeopathy has been found useless in a study. It is as if this is the first study of that kind. There might have been several other studies conducted in the past which endorsed homeopathy’s strengths.
I have been a sufferer of permanent cold since childhood which later turned to become sinusitis and breathing difficulties.
My father was a strong believer in Allopathic medicine and he never tried alternative medicine except Ayurveda. However around 6 years back I was persuaded by many and started to try homeopathy. The results were surprising and long lasting. The medicines were so gentle and you would feel no side effect whatsoever which is often associated with most allopathic medicines.
In fact in my case due to the surgeries I have undergone for my sinusitis, my condition further deteriorated into frequent encrusting of mucus in one side of the nose.
The truth is that health is God given. Human body is immensely powerful and no medicine will help one’s suffering more than what his own body can do to alleviate the suffering. In fact all medicine and treatment leaves 50% for the body to act and works on the rest.
Hence homeopathy which is immensely popular across the world needs to be defended fiercely and the fact is its popularity is its first defense. No matter how many studies are done, something that helped a person in pain so long can not be belittled due the findings of one study.
I know close family members and friends suffering from Asthma, and Migraine and other similar complicated diseases recovering extremely well from homeopathy treatment.
There is also a business aspect here; Allopathic medicine and its promotion is driven by billion dollar drug companies and other associated establishments. Eliminating one potential competitor which is popular would do much good in terms of increased business.
Fact remains allopathic medicine is the most popular amongst all medicinal sciences and me included will run into an allopathic doctor and hospital when things don’t look good. Let that not blind that science so that studies come out and report other alternatives practiced for hundreds of years as useless.
