The basic principle of treatment in homeopathy is 'to treat like with like,' but does this principle work every time? Till now the homeopathic doctors don't have any evidence to prove the efficacy of homeopathic drugs. At the same time, the ground reality is that there are many cases in which a patient has been treated or has got relief by homeopathy.
The concept of homeopathy does not match the fundamentals of primary physics and chemistry principles, so they can't prove them scientifically. It is a pseudoscience, if homeopathy is proven to be right, then all other sciences will go wrong, reported a BBC show.
Many patients who use homeopathy medicine have even died, by ruining their medical condition due to firm belief in the medicine. Many such cases are unreported because of the influence of powerful homeopathic lobby, and the ignorant government.
The infectious diseases, which can be treated easily by giving antibiotics, antifungal or antiviral drugs can become deadly -if the patient prefers homeopathy. Diseases like cancers, which are to be treated at early stages by giving proper treatment, are allowed to grow till its last stage, because of the use of ineffective sugar balls.
Many people have a strong belief about homeopathic medicines and their cure, but the real fact behind that is: natural healing – our body has an immune system, and at times it has the ability to heal the disease without any medication. Some diseases are conditional and cyclic, which are self-curable, but the individual tends to seek care at that time of discomfort, and he may feel better after visiting a homeopathic doctor. The homeopaths recommend the patient, not to go for a surgery or drugs as they can cause side effects. The individuals need to have a lot of change in there life style as homeopathic treatment requires dietary restrictions as well as restrictions in consuming alcohol and coffee, all of which can bring a lot of improvement in your health. Psychological feeling – the concern, care and reassurance provided by the homeopaths during consultation, creates a kind of assurance about their health amongst the patients.
In a report published in the Science and Technology
Committee, it was concluded that the NHS in the UK should cease funding homeopathy. It also said that the Medicines and Healthcare Regulatory Agency (MHRA), should not allow homeopathic products to have labels, without evidence about its efficacy, and they should no longer be given license by MHRA.
Homeopathy was first started in Germany, and now it is not being recognized in that country. There are only fifteen thousand homeopaths (all are unregistered) in the US, which is leading in health sector. Just giving a medicine without knowing about its outcome is a senseless approach. People should understand the seriousness of the problem and should act sensibly in choosing the right path for there health care.
