Tom Syre demonstrated his complete ignorance of and bias against homeopathic medicine (“Before Using Homeopathic Cures, Learn The Facts,” July 21; “Homeopathy Is Not Effective,” June 24). Substantial scientific and clinical evidence supports the therapeutic effectiveness of homeopathic medicines in a wide range of conditions. There are multiple, reliable resources for homeopathic research, which validate the effectiveness of homeopathic medical treatment: goo.g1/8veSPm, goo.gl/zXPtcS and goo.g1/2NKn88.
In addition, the Swiss government, which has a long and widely-respected history of neutrality, approved homeopathic medicine as a legitimate modality within their comprehensive, national health care service based upon exhaustive research. In late 2011, the Swiss government’s report on homeopathic medicine representing the most comprehensive evaluation of homeopathic medicine ever written was published in book form in English (Bornhoft and Mattiessen, 2011).
Allopathic medicine has its roots in chemical industries that had an excess capacity following World War I, John D. Rockefeller, and the Carnegie funded Flexner Report that concentrated power and wealth into the hands of a few. The first chemotherapy drug was, in fact, derived from mustard gas. Research funds were directed only to the allopathic side and denied to homeopathy, naturopathy, osteopathy, and chiropractic. It’s a common tactic; direct all the research funding to one area only, arrive at a lop-sided conclusion and become fabulously wealthy.
I can speak to this issue on a very personal level. Allopathic drugs are responsible for the death of my moth-er, my best friend, my father, and they almost killed my son. Conversely, a double board-certified homeopathic family doctor saved me from a painful neck surgery, saved one son from elbow surgery, and just recently with the grace of God saved my other son’s life from vital organ failure. The doctors at the university hospital who gave my son six months to live are calling it a miracle. It’s not. It is using methodology that the Food and Drug Administration, a lap dog for the pharmaceutical industry, does not understand and actively suppresses homeopathy and other non-conventional therapies to the detriment of the U.S. public health and welfare. Abolishing the FDA (Federal Death Agency?) would go a long way towards improving our health care system.
I strongly recommend that anyone who wishes to learn the truth about the genuine value of homeopathic medical care review the research themselves, bypass the uninformed remarks of Mr. Syre and his biased, pro-big pharma cohorts, see the documentary “Just One Drop” (https://goo. gl/judbjC), and consult with a qualified, experienced, homeopathic physician yourself. Firsthand experience with the safe, gentle power of homeopathic medicine is the best arbiter of reality, and proof that it does, in fact, work and work very well for millions of people in America and worldwide.Back to Blog
