HMC21 Commentary

Comments

  1. I was absolutely appalled to read that article, and immediately started digging for information about the doctor who had been quoted. I found that he is actually very unpopular, and is considered an ambitious little upstart who is, along with a few cronies, upsetting all sorts of apple carts in the BMA. However, that was small comfort compared to the outrageous insult that he managed to get into the main papers. I was, as I'm sure everyone is, furious and deeply dismayed. Even with the best research data that we could use to prove unequivocally that homeopathy works we wont move forward for the simple reason that they dont WANT anyone to know that it works - that would create chaos! The pharma companies would be in the same position as bp!

    The text below is one of my responses to a blogiot to chose to argue with pseudo-intelligent babble that Tom Dolphin was right.

    'Homeopathy is NOT witchcraft. Your arguments are at best spurious and disingenuous, and at worst absurd. It is a carefully administered medicinal system that helps to restore health to patients based on specific methodology, philosophy and laws.

    If you choose to accept the current conventional wisdom that homeopathic medicine is nothing more than a placebo, how can you then go on to say it's something altogether else?

    Your opinion is yours, and you're entitled to it of course. But if you were to take the trouble to find someone whose health had improved after homeopathic medicine, you may find that you are prepared to think a little more deeply about the real differences between allopathic and homeopathic medicine before casting practitioners of the latter in such an outrageously unfair light.

    What is it with the British press and homeopathy anyway? It's really popular in Europe and India, and highly respected. When the next REAL pandemic hits, and there are no drugs, then you'll all see what it's really capable of.

    Witchcraft! Pah! That is insulting and ludicrous.'
