Default Homeopathy

I saw this come up in a recent discussion and wanted to discuss it a little further with people without derailing things there.

In my view, homeopathy works. Not for all ailments, serious disease like malaria, cancer al that kind of area cannot be treated with positive mind alone (although, that in itself is a debate, countless people have stunned doctors by overcoming a cancer or other terminal disease when they had virtually been condemned to death by the medical world...) however, I do believe that every day ailments *can* be treated with a positive mindset and natural remedies.

Speaking from personal experience, I rarely get ill as it is, but when I do, I get it very bad indeed. I also haven't taken a paracetmol or medicine in years (except for malaria and all the required vaccines to go to where I did) but when I have gotten ill - I mean a cold, a sore throat, a headache - I have simply used a remedy like drinking some black tea with lemon and honey or just taking a rest and learning to bear it out. I believe far too many people these days are into the habit of whenever they feel something 'coming on', they instantly assume "i'm coming down with something, and it's going to be bad" and go running for the paracetemol, and they more than often do end up going down with something. My mother is a case-in-point on this one.

In a way, it opens it up to a larger debate; are we becoming to terrified of everything? Again, for me as a child, I rarely took medicine - if i'm honest, I rarely even washed my hands - but I still played in the woods, got bumps, scrapes and bruises... But I think it was that that gave me my natural resilience. It seems like nowadays, with all the "kills 99% of all known germs" products around, we're just becoming too sterile.

Any thoughts?

Homoeopathic remedies are literally pure water. They do nothing.

However, the effects you describe are well-known as instances of the placebo effect. Your mother has the reverse going on: thinking the problem is going to get worse makes it so.

Ah this is very interesting, I do believe that having a strong mind can cure ailments all by itself, even the more serious ones and I believe there is also scientific proof for this for anybody here who is into science. As for natural remedies, I would take these over the stuff the doctors prescribe most of the time, after looking through the 'side effects' on commonly available over the counter drugs and seeing stuff like blindess. I know all to well that the odds of that occuring are tiny but still.

I think it's somewhat humourous that lots of people are terrified of germs these days. We live in a world of surface cleaners, kids are told not to pick stuff up of the floor, I mean hell when I was a child and I couldnt be bothered to go back to the house for a drink I'd take a few swigs out of our several year old waterbutt in the garden and I never got ill. While people want their kids to be safe from illness, they fail to realize that the germs are just going to mutate and grow stronger but our immunity won't, then they will be in the Ninat :/ By staying away from germs we are killing ourselves but I guess it's just Nature's way of eventually weeding out the 'sterile'.

I don't think any sort of medication should be taken lightly, but I don't believe there's any effective place for homeopathy.

K - when I can get to a regular computer, I'll more than offer my two cents on this debate. Disbeliever's forewarned! :/

What Fkeu'itan has presented is more actually the general concept of whats seen and referred to within the context of Wholistic or Alternative Health practices, which encompass a large and varying techniques that range from the reasonable to the outlandish. Most only hear about the outlandish!

Homeopathy is a very specific field in and of itself, than involves 'proven' remedies (which I'll provide the documentation of, later). It as a recognized treatment practice has been around longer than today's modern allopathic medicine. In fact Homeopathy saved more lives during the Spanish Flu Pandemic, than allopathic medicine did. Also Homeopathy has 'cured' Malaria, in fact, it was finding the cure for Malaria that gave 'birth' to Homeopathy, and even today's allopatic remedy is rooted in the same remedy that Homeopathy uses - Quinine (sic) (can't spell check -will correct after).

So just some basic comment's for now. “I'll be back.”

The placebo effect can be very effective. That said, homeopathy is not only based on a dubious premise to begin with, but diluted to the point that the chance of it containing even a single molecule from the supposed 'cure' is effectively zero.
People given a sugar pill and told it's ibuprofen can mentally block pain. People have even had cancer go into remission on placebo - this is all on what is objectively useless as medication, but they believe it will do something, so their body does what the brain wants.

Homeopathy kills people by convincing them they can refuse proper treatment because their magic water will cure them, then it invariably doesn't. In some double-blind studies, the placebo has performed better than the homeopathy.

Alright - first of all I'm going to back up my arguements with solid facts through documentation. I respectfully request the same from those opposed, rather than just presenting opinioned generalizations!

Secondly the side effects of pharmecuticals has killed more patients than Homeopathy will ever have!!! Not to mention the toxic effects its created in our global waterways. In fact pharmecutical 'dumping' is now being proved to contibuting to the alarming increases in male sterility/impotency, and early onset puberty and infertility in females!!!

So what we are needing to get 'realistic” about is modern allopathic synthetic medicines, Con's far out weigh the brain washing pro's they try to use to play god with.

sidenote: btw I've been doing this dance of a debate, for more than twenty five years, and in that time, more people have cone over to this side of the dance floor, in the end.

Exhibits 1, 2, 3.

The first article in particular says:
In particular, there was no condition which responds convincingly better "to homeopathic treatment than to placebo or other control interventions. Similarly, there was no homeopathic remedy that was demonstrated to yield clinical effects that are convincingly different from placebo."

Spending more than 5 minutes on this will yield more, of course.

Quote:

This is perfectly consistent with homoeopathy doing nothing; the placebo effect will not directly kill you. It's also fallacious reasoning, since homoeopathic medicine is not used for high-risk or otherwise "deadlier" conditions, and this will bias the statistics in its favour.

Quote:

This is trying to exploit a dichotomy that doesn't exist: "Conventional medicine is bad, therefore homoeopathy works!"

Quote:

Scaremongering and emotional manipulation. Demonizing the opponent is not a valid debating tactic.

Appeal to popularity is not an argument either.

ok Clarke, as to the ettiqutes, of debating, i will concede, as this is probably the actual first 'debate' as in formality sense, i've engaged upon. Simplified response, i have no knowledle of debate rules. :/

As to your exhibts I'll look over tonight and post tomorrow, please remember I can't cite, copy, paste etc due to technical limitations of a Wii, which is not an appeal to emotion, it was a consideration I had noted previous post.

Not sure about how I feel about homeopathy, but at the same time I don't feel western medicine has all the answers, either. There's probably something to some eastern medicines, or natural medicines. Western medicine could probably learn from the East new ways to make their medicine more natural and more in line with our biology, and Eastern medicine can learn to make their medicine more effective. We need to find a balance of the best of both worlds.

Stag brings up a good point about avoiding bacteria. By attempting to create such a sterilized environment for ourselves, we rob our bodies of the chance to be exposed to trace amounts of a bacteria or virus, and thus developing a defense for them. This is known as hormesis. It's gotten a bad name recently, because of right-wingers like Ann Coulter who took a previously legitimate phenomenon and used it to...say, justify looser nuclear regulation because low levels of gamma radiation can be "good for us." The best way to use hormesis to prevent disease? Let kids be kids! Let them play in the dirt and play with bugs, like most of the more adult members on here did when they were kids, before the whole "hand sanitation" and "helicopter parenting" became the craze. All this is is just a scam by Purell to hawk their stupid hand sanitizers.

And yes, no matter what side your on I think we can all agree that the medical-industrial establishment has strayed from healing and become more a money-making scheme than anything. Modern medicine can be just as capable of peddling snake-oil as some alternative medicines, and we need to do something about it. #OccupyBigPharma, anyone?

* NB - Clarke or others, my reponse to Tsyal is not intended as part of the debate. Its an insiders friends joke to something from back on AF days.

As to the debate, i would note, it is a documented fact, that when people are afraid of death and dying, they pretty much can and will be convinced to 'believe' right or wrongly, but definetly blindly in 'anything' that 'claims' will or might save them.

Allopathic is just as much at fault for that as the alternatives.

And given the detail that I'm the one that has to pay for my health choices and care, I will decide for myself, what i'm willing to pay for.

On consideration of what i see as a reasonable use of my knowledge, energy and time, combined with quitting smoking, I realized I have no patience for this. Honesty to you that dont want to even be open minded to alternatives, i don't give a rat's ass what you think. You do it your way I'll do it my way, lets see whose more ****ed in the end. I'll live life more fully, synthetic free, even if its a shorter life, idk, but at least i own my body and my mind, and my choices, not some pharmecutical company.

Well the very first link i pulled when googling homeopathic clinical studies, in a medical journal, observed that out of something like 84 studies, indications were “apparent bias” and undeterminable methodolgy made it difficult or inclusive to ascertain the quality of the findings - and it is refering both to the Alopathic studies, as well as the Homeopathic practioners ones. But it concludeds despite the biases, etc, it seems the majority of the studies demonstrate (or indicate) a “positive” resultant of Homeopathic useage.

side note random comment that vilolates once again debating do's and dont's, It's interesting that by what is considered necessary for scientific verification, is absolutely no room for Faith, Prayer, or anything Spiritual, so that 'god' will fail. But the same criteria can allow Sugar companies to publish ads based on their studies, that sugar is good for you, doesn't contribute to tooth decay, obesity or diabetes, because 'technically' its been proven 'true' but really thats the point any research can be skewed.




I'VE never seen an 'atom' and probably never will, but i'm supposed to take the word of it taught to me in school as 'truth' because others have their evidence, 'not to mention big scary bomb', yet homeopathy who distills medicine down to the atomic level, is considered debunked, and again i'm just suppossed to take someone elses word as 'truth'?

That wasn't what you said in response to my post.

Advocating something to those who are interested is very different form defending it against someone well-informed who has taken the time to do the actual research.

That sounds to me like an admission eastern ones don't work.

Nobody said any approach has all answers, but basing what IS known on evidence, on detailed understandings of processes that had not even been discovered when other methods were invented, is a far more reliable method than throwing in whatever because it might help.

Vitamin supplements and such things?
Those have nothing to do with actual medicines, and if you look, they can't actually make any specific claims, only say it is a 'dietary supplement', and they can not make any claim about medical effects without testing (e.g. FDA in the US).

Before you go set up a tent outside a clinic and start persecuting people for trying to make a difference, remember that companies invest BILLIONS into research, and that it's poorly-funded healthcare systems which may not be able to afford developments.

Yes, and that's a bad thing.

It's not about open-mindedness. I approached such things with an open mind when looking for useful data on efficacy, looked for evidence, found none, and found a large body of contradicting evidence. Remaining 'open minded' after something is proven false is closed-minded in itself - remember the burden of proof is always on the claimant, not on those disproving it. False unless proven true, like innocent until proven guilty. If someone was to say "I used magic yesterday but it was a one time thing and never can again", that's going to be most likely that they are lying, as they can not prove it. If they said "I used it to make this perpetual motion device, but never can again", then it would be worthy of actual consideration/investigation in absence of another explanation.

Placebos also demonstrate a positive effect compared to doing nothing. Even doing nothing yet telling the patient something is being done invokes the placebo effect, and can cause improvements in condition. Equally, side effects are possible from placebos - if you give someone what they think may have side effects of tiredness, but is actually a placebo, they become more likely to report tiredness.
The entire point of a double-blind trial is to avoid bias. It can be summarised as such:

There are multiple patient groups, with the same representative composition.
Researchers are given one group, and one treatment to administer. The researchers do not know if they are administering a placebo or real treatment, in order to avoid either giving it away via subconscious clues, or letting their own thoughts affect observation. They observe results over time, still not knowing if they administered placebo or real treatment, so as not to affect their recording of the data. the people who control the experiment and know which group is which do not interact with the patients at all.
By this method, any systemic bias, either in administration, or in recording of data, is removed.

Not at all true. There have even been studies testing the efficacy of 'prayer' compared to medical treatment. If any 'sugar company' published such an ad, I know at least here it could be rapidly dealing with the ASA for misleading advertising, I'm going to assume it's the same in the US - even if it is at least a little looser there based on the prevalence of character assassination political attack ads which are almost unheard of here, I seriously doubt advertising is unregulated.

Well, you may not have seen one per se, but you interact with them every millisecond. Homeopathy dilutes substances to such a degree that it does not actually contain any of the supposed ingredient (the ratio is around the size of a single pixel on a monitor the size of the solar system).

Homeopathy predates just about every modern understanding of the world - it was developed at a time when people thought disease was caused by bad smells, and that the body was comprised of "Four Humours" (yes, seriously). At the time, so-called medical treatment was primitive and often made things worse (e.g. bloodletting), and doing nothing often actually gave a better chance of recovery - THAT is why is was not consigned to the bin of history along with bloodletting. Se yes, it did work in a fashion as an alternative, but that alternative was still de facto doing nothing.

As strange as it be, the Sugar Companies Ad's really did happen very well may have been here in North America, i remember them, might have been even since 2000, it was ridiculous, and I don't know how they got away with being able to do it, but I do know most of us shook are heads in disbelief, but it wasn't a prank ad, it was a legitimate one. :/

And have years and years of personal life experience and many Professional associates, acquaintances in both the Allopathic and Alternative Health field, that have added thier experiences and expertise to the whole.
