Which one is safe..........?
What u want suppression or total cure....?
yes there are negative and positive faces for both pathies,Now a days lot of research going on in homeopathy to knowthe action of homeopathic medicine. but homeopathy is superior to allopathic science. as you are treated illiterates with the name of specialties it seems allopathy is dominant most of the educated who have reason gifted mind are turning towardshomeopathic treatment.
http://ushahomeopathy.comHomeopathyhttp://homeoresearch.blogspot.comThis is not religion Homeopathy, when you don't know the scientific aspect of a particular event do you call this is belief. till you know the Truth you may call it is something god. But if you knowthe action of Homeopathic medicine you will never call is belief.
This post is absolutely excellent
indeed sir....................itz a misconception that alternative medicine dont hv side-effect...............as to,if used for prolonged period than required.....dosage not used moderately............our part of medicine also can hv adverse-effect......!!nevertheless...........alternative medicine....r gaining popularity for.......treating chronic ailments.....more efficiently....for treating the root of disease......for b'ing gastric-friendly..........comparatively!!
With the rise of popularity in alternative medicines, one of the biggest current debates is the efficacy of homeopathic medicine when contrasted with what we consider traditional, or allopathic medicine. While both schools of medicine have the common goal of healing the sick, both achieve that goal by different means.
Most practitioners of allopathic medicine attempt to treatment an illness by targeting the part of the body affected. They identify the causative agent of the illness, such as a virus or bacteria and treat it. Homeopathic doctors believe that emotional and psychological stress causes the body to become more susceptible to disease and attempt to cure these breaches in the immune system. While allopathic doctors treat only the sickness, homeopathic doctors adhere to an order that is holistic.
Allopathic doctors rely heavily on medicines manufactured by pharmaceutical companies. These medicines are strongly based on biological chemistry and most are man-made. Homeopathic doctors use natural cures such as herbs and tonics. Allopathic doctors tend to be more aggressive in their use of medicine. Homeopathic doctors believe that only one dose of medicine is enough to cure the disease and that overdosing on medication causes further sicknesses. They are also proponents for the smallest dosage needed.
Allopathic doctors that surgery is required for serious conditions. By removing the causative agent, such as a tumor, from the body, the disease will be cured. Homeopathic doctors almost never engage in surgery unless the tissue has undergone irrevocable changes or it is a congenital defect attacking the patient.
Allopathic medicine is based on the principles of the ancient Greeks such as Hippocrates. Homeopathy is based on the beliefs of German physician Samuel Hahnemann. Homeopaths believed that allopaths practiced medicine based on opposite results, rather than taking a holistic approach. In the 19th century, the word allopathic was a disparaging term. Some people still prefer the term "conventional" over allopathic. In the United States, it is also known as "regular" medicine.
Both schools of thought believe the other is not beneficial to patients. Those who believe in homeopathy think the use of drugs to cure disease doesn't really fix the problem in the patient and that pharmaceutical medicine actually makes people sicker. Allopathic doctors believe that the medicines employed by homeopaths have no effect outside of a placebo. They also point to numerous clinical studies that produced results claiming homeopathy does nothing to help sick people.
One thing for sure cure is a rarity in this modren world
Next question is which medcine is safe ....both medciens are safe if proper protocols are followed
Infact there no exact protocols for homoeo practice and protocols are ignored in allopathy both things are dangerous
still lot to be proved in homoeo to eastablish as full fleged medcine..as i think research stopped where kent and hahnemann had left
And other thing allopaths are trained being unware of alternative medcine capabilities and homoeo people are trained less competative when compared with allopathic colleagues .....
as far as i can say at this stage .....allopathy is a life saving medcine
homoeo is life quality increasing medcine....
both should work in coordination to give patient a positive health.....
finally the proper tratment is what the patient deserves...
homeo should do lot more to reach equal status with allopaths ..because they are advancing in fields of biomechanics and bioengineering which will rule in near future....
The proposition ''suppression or total cure' is false. Homeopathy has no unwanted effects but its only 'effect' is placebo, which conventional medicine has also. If you woke at 3.am with vomiting, raised temperature and severe pain in the RIF who would you call? A homeopath or your conventional doctor? No brainer. Homeopathy is effective in non life threatening conditions where the power of the mind can induce therapeutic change. Its horses for courses.
Let me answer your question with a question. Which one has the more evidence-based support? The answer to that question should provide the most reliable answer. Anecdotal support is no support scientifically.
What a nice discussion..Interesting too to learn from you..Out of curiosity, here is what i can share..i just googled to be clarified..
