Homeopathy Myths and Facts

Myths and Facts about Homeopathy by Dr Rajesh Shah, MD (Hom)

 

 

Myth: Homeopathy is slow to act.

Fact: Not really. Homeopathy is fast acting in acute conditions such as infections, fever, diarrhea, etc. Chronic and old diseases such as psoriasis take a long time to treat hence homeopathy has been labeled as slow acting. One may say that homeopathy may be slower than the effect of pain-killers, anti-inflammatory medicines, and steroids. One must know that homeopathy is faster in the treatment of conditions such as allergy, asthma, eczema, migraine, arthritis.

Homeopathy is like a tortoise in the well-known story of tortoise and rabbit.

Myth: Homeopathy is useful only for chronic conditions and has no role for acute ailments

Fact: Homeopathy is a great alternative medicine for acute diseases. In fact, at on time, we at Life Force used to treat a large number of acute ailments varying from cough-cold-fever to otitis media, pneumonia, tonsillitis, hepatitis, sinusitis, etc.

Homeopathy is real alternative medicine for most acute conditions.

Myth: When it comes to handling infections, nothing can beat antibiotics.

Fact: This misbelief is an example of mass ignorance in the hi-tech era that we are living in. Over an again, thousands of practitioners the world over, have repeatedly and regularly observed that infections of all kinds including bacterial infections respond beautifully to homeopathy and no antibiotics are required for most of such conditions. It is in rare cases when the infection is very massive and the body has lost the vitality to recover, probably antibiotics are required in addition to homeopathy.

One, day homeopathy will be recognized as the latest generation antibiotic measure.

Myth: Homeopathy is more placebo effect and faith healing...

Fact: Scientific double-blind studies have indicated that homeopathy far above the placebo effect. The effect of homeopathy medicine has been observed millions of times, which cannot be labeled as the placebo effect. Newborn babies, infants, animals such as lions, dogs, etc. have shown the healing effects of homeopathy, which goes against the placebo effect. Saying that homeopathy is a placebo, in the light of the above facts, is not just a misbelief but a prejudice.

Frankly, this is an insult. However, over the period, we have realized that those who continue assuming that homeopathy is a mere placebo, are superstitious.

Myth: Homeopathy can only help functional problems such as pain, weakness, where there are no structural changes in the body.

Fact: Homeopathy has proved its efficacy for the treatment of structural pathology. Numerous documented cases where the reversal of the structural pathology has taken place indicating the depth of homeopathy action.

The skeptics should keep the eyes open to evaluating the documented cases.

Myth: Homeopathy is practiced by some quacks and those who have no scientific background...

Fact: Well, homeopathy in most parts of the world is practiced by qualified conventional doctors, the practitioners of modern medicine. The founder of homeopathy, Dr. Samuel Hahnemann, MD was a German scientist. And most of the masters and the pioneers in the past were enlightened conventional doctors.

Those who think we are quacks, we just smile...

Myth: Homeopathy is a miracle medicine and it cures every disease under the sun.

Fact: Homeopathy is no panacea. It has its own set of limitations. We do fail in many cases and keep learning to heal the suffering humanity.

Homeopathy is not an ultimate medicine, for nothing is ultimate in this universe.

Myth: Is that homeopathy would worsen my symptoms initially and then bring about improvement". I am scared to try Homeopathy since I cannot afford to see my symptoms getting worse than what I have at the moment.

Fact: It is not true that Homeopathy would lead to an initial aggravation of your complaints. After Dr. Shah’s 23 years of dedicated and sincere practice in homeopathy, he claims that he is yet to see any homeopathic aggravation!. The aggravation which the patient experiences at times after taking the medicines is usually coincidental with the progress of the disease wherein it worsens in its natural course. This confirms that the homeopathic remedies are usually harmless, but the myths associated with them are not.
