Homeopathic medicine is at present one of the leading alternative therapies practiced by physicians in Europe (particularly France, Germany, UK, and Italy) and Asia (especially on the Indian subcontinent)(EU Commission, 1997; Prasad, 2007). Since homeopathy's development as a medical specialty in the early 1800s, it has been a leading alternative to orthodox medicine internationally, and it has posed an ongoing threat to the scientific, philosophical, and economics of conventional medical care.

The homeopathic approach to healing maintains a deep respect for symptoms of illness as important defenses of a person's immune and defense system. While conventional medicine often tends to assume that symptoms are something "wrong" with the person that need to be treated, inhibited, suppressed, or biochemically manipulated, homeopaths tend to assume that symptoms are important defenses of the organism that are most effectively resolved when treatments nurture, nourish, or mimic the symptoms in order to initiate a healing process. Ultimately, these two different approaches to healing people have led to various conflicts.

It is common, for instance, for homeopaths to question the alleged "scientific" studies that conventional drugs are "effective" as treatments because of concern that many of these treatments tend to suppress symptoms or disrupt the complex inner ecology of the body and create much more serious illness. Just as opiate drugs of the 19th century gave the guise of healing, homeopaths contend that many modern-day drugs provide blessed short-term relief but create immune dysfunction, mental illness, and other chronic disease processes in its wake. Further, the fact that most people today are prescribed multiple drugs concurrently, despite the fact that clinical research is rarely conducted showing the safety or efficacy of such practices, forces us all to question how scientific modern medicine truly is.

Homeopaths contend that increased rates of cancer, heart disease, chronic fatigue, and various chronic diseases for increasingly younger people may result from conventional medicine's suppression of symptoms and disease processes. It is therefore no surprise that conventional physicians and Big Pharma have a long and dark history of working together to attack homeopathy and homeopaths.

The antagonism against homeopathy began when the highly respected Saxon physician Samuel Hahnemann, MD, first developed the system in the early 1800s. Hahnemann was a translator of leading medical and pharmacology texts and the author of the leading textbook used by pharmacists of his day.

Despite Hahnemann's high stature in medicine, pharmacology, and chemistry, his strong critique of conventional medicine led to personal attacks against him by orthodox physicians as well as by the apothecaries (the drug makers of that time) who were philosophically and economically threatened by Hahnemann's work. When homeopathy arrived in America in 1825, it grew rapidly due to its widely recognized success in treating infectious disease epidemics that raged in the early and mid-1800s. Then, when the American Institute of Homeopathy became the first national medical organization in 1844, a rival organization developed that proposed to stop the growth of homeopathy (Rothstein, 1985, p. 232). That organization called itself the American Medical Association.

Paul Starr's Pulitzer Prize-winning book, The Social Transformation of American Medicine, acknowledged the stature that homeopathy achieved in America in the mid-and later 19th century: "Because homeopathy was simultaneously philosophical and experimental, it seemed to many people to be more rather than less scientific than orthodox medicine" (p. 97).

U.S. President William McKinley even dedicated a special monument to Dr. Hahnemann in Washington, DC, in 1900, which still stands today as the only monument in America's capital to the deeds of a physician.

However, because of the economic, philosophical, and scientific threat that the paradigm and practice of homeopathy represents, the vitriol and antagonism still exists. It is therefore enlightening to expose the disinformation that is spread about homeopathy and then understand WHO is leading this disinformation campaign (the second-part of this article will name names and discuss two individuals, one from the USA and one from the UK, who are presently leaders in the campaign against homeopathy).

The Myths Spread about Homeopathy

Like other propagandists, the homeopathy deniers seek to create disinformation by using three straightforward techniques. First, the homeopathy deniers make a simple false accusation, a lie, and repeat it constantly and consistently in an attempt to make it a new "truth". Second, this repetition is then done within the context of some legitimizing element. In the case of the homeopathy deniers, that element is a corruption of normal science, an analysis of scientific evidence that creates reasons (excuses) to exclude high quality studies that show positive results (even those studies that have been published in leading conventional medical journals), and a mis-use of the concept of skepticism. The homeopathy deniers ignore or downplay the substantial body of evidence from basic science and clinical research, from outcome studies, from cost-effectiveness studies, and from epidemiological evidence, and only quote from those studies that verify their own point of view, rather than reviewing the entire body of evidence.

The third component of the technique is to sell the lie to a vulnerable population in an attempt to have repetition from that group. In the case of the homeopathy deniers, the vulnerable groups are often young students of science, who are enamored with the language and elitism of their newly learned craft, but who lack the deep understanding and experience to realize that they are being "used" by the deniers. The homeopathy deniers also play on the fears of those older and established scientists and physicians and who are led to believe that "if homeopathy is true, then everything about modern medicine and science is false." This over-simplification of reality is commonly repeated. However, just as quantum physics does not "disprove" all of physics, but rather, it extends our capability to understand and predict events on extremely small and extremely large systems. Likewise, homeopathy does not disprove all of modern pharmacology but extends our understanding of the use of extremely small doses of medicinal agents to elicit healing responses.

History is replete with orthodox medicine and science being steadfastly resistant to different systems of medicine and paradigms of healing. Although , the average physician and scientist tends to be threatened by new ideas, a common attribute of leading physicians and scientists is a certain openness and humility due to the common and even expected evolution of knowledge.

It should be acknowledged upfront that homeopathic practitioners, patients, and users of these natural medicines are often surprised and amazed at the results they experience in the treatment of themselves, children, infants, animals, and even plants. In my observations over the past 40 years, most people are skeptical about homeopathy until they try it and see for themselves...and there are then good reasons that tens of millions of people all over the world use and rely upon these natural medicines for a wide range of acute and chronic ailments. That said, the challenge is not just trying homeopathy, but first learning something about it so that you can use it correctly and effectively.

Sadly, however, the homeopathy deniers tend to spread disinformation about homeopathy, including the following myths:

Myth #1: "There is no research that shows that homeopathic medicines work."

Such statements are a creative use of statistics, or what might be called "lies, damn lies, and statistics." Actually, most clinical research studies conducted with homeopathic medicines show a positive outcome. However, if "creative statisticians" evaluate only the smaller number of large studies, a positive result is less likely, not because homeopathy doesn't work, but because these larger studies tend to dispense only ONE homeopathic medicine for everyone in the study, without any degree of individualized treatment that is typical of the homeopathic method.[1] To claim that homeopathic medicines do not work using only these studies is as illogical as to say that antibiotics are ineffective just because they do not cure for every viral, fungal, or bacterial infection.

Myth #2: "The research studies showing that homeopathic medicines work are 'poorly conducted studies'."

Wrong! Studies showing the efficacy of homeopathic medicines have been published in the Lancet, the British Medical Journal, Pediatrics, Pediatric Infectious Disease Journal, Cochrane Reports, Chest (the publication of the British Society of Rheumatology), Cancer (the journal of the American Cancer Society), Journal of Clinical Oncology (journal of the Society of Clinical Oncology), Human Toxicology, European Journal of Pediatrics, Archives in Facial Plastic Surgery, Archives of Otolaryngology -- Head and Neck Surgery, Journal of Clinical Psychiatry, and many more.[2] ALL of these studies were randomized, double-blind, and placebo controlled. Further, because of bias against homeopathy, these studies have been scrutinized rigorously, perhaps even more rigorously than is usual.

The weak response from the homeopathy deniers is that the above studies are "cherry-picked." Well, it seems that there are a lot of "cherries" (clinical studies that verify the efficacy of homeopathic medicines). Also, numerous of the above leading medical journals have published meta-analyzes of clinical trials on specific diseases and have shown that homeopathic medicines have significantly more benefits than does a placebo. And further, the deniers erroneously equate the "negative" studies evidence that the whole system of homeopathy does not work, when, in fact, these studies are usually of a preliminary nature that explored the use of one or a small handful of remedies for a specific condition.

Ironically, the one review of research that the homeopathic deniers most commonly assert as strong evidence that there's no difference between homeopathic medicines and placebo (Shang et al, 2005) has been shown to be bad or certainly inadequate science (Walach, et al, 2005; Fisher, 2006; Rutten, 2009, Rutten and Stolper, 2008; Ludtke and Rutten, 2008).

Myth #3: "12C is like one drop in the entire Atlantic Ocean."

Pure fantasy (and fuzzy math)! In fact, the 12C dose requires 12 test tubes, and 1% of the solution is drawn from each of the 12 test tubes. It is also very typical for the "deniers" of homeopathy to assert with a straight face that the making of a single homeopathic medicine requires more water than exists on the planet. It seems that the skeptics are so fundamentalist in their point of view that they consciously or unconsciously mis-assume that the dilutions used in homeopathy grow proportionately with each dilution; they assume that each dilution requires 10 or 100 times more water with each dilution -- which they don't, and even the most elementary articles and books on homeopathy affirm this fact. Sadly (and strangely), most of the skeptics of homeopathy seem to read each other's misinformation on homeopathy and have a propensity to spin the reality of what homeopathy is in ways that misconstrue it.

Myth #4: "There is nothing in a homeopathic medicine. It is just water."

Ignorance and direct disinformation. First, a large number of homeopathic medicines that are sold in health food stores and pharmacies are what are called "low potencies," that is, small or very small doses of medicines, most of which are in a similar dose to which certain powerful hormones and immune cells circulate in our body. Second, using samples of six different medicines made from minerals, scientists at the Department of Engineering at the Indian Institute of Technology have consistently confirmed that the starting substance is still present in the form of nanoparticles of the starting minerals even when the medicine has undergone hundreds of serial dilutions--with vigorous shaking in-between each dilution, as per the homeopathic method (Chikramane, Suresh, Bellare, 2010).[3] Further, leading chemistry and physics journals have published other research to confirm that there are differences between water and "homeopathic water" (Elia and Niccoli, 1999; Elia, Napoli, Niccoli, et al, 2008; Rey, 2003)

Myth #5: "If we do not presently understand how homeopathic medicines work, then, they cannot work. It's witchcraft."

Lame on face value. How many more times in history do scientists and others need before they realize that we do not understand a lot of nature's mysteries, but our lack of understanding does not mean that the mysteries are not real. Calling homeopathy "witchcraft" clearly is someone's fear of what they do not know or understand, and a common observation from history is that whenever one goes on a witchhunt, a witch is found (one way or another). The fact that there is a small but significant body of basic sciences research that has shown physical and biological effects from homeopathic medicines tends to be ignored (Endler, Thieves, Reich, et al 2010; Witt, Bluth, Albrecht, et al, 2007). To publish in peer-reviewed scientific journals is not a common practice from witches (or warlocks).

Dr. Karol Sikora is a respected oncologist and dean of the University of Buckingham medical school (in England). Sikora has expressed serious concern about the "Stalinist repression" that certain skeptics of homeopathic and alternative medicines engage (Sikora, 2009). Sikora has harshly criticized "armchair physicians" and others who seem to have little or no experience in using these treatments with real patients.

One other critical piece of evidence to show and even prove the unscientific attitude of the homeopathy deniers is that they now wish to close off all discussion of the efficacy of homeopathic medicines (Baum and Ernst, 2009). These medical fundamentalist actually discourage keeping an open mind about homeopathy. One must question this unscientific attitude that select antagonists to homeopathy embody...and one must even wonder why they maintain such a position.

The second part of this article will provide further specific evidence of the unscientific attitude and actions from those individuals and organizations who are leading the campaign against homeopathy. A leading antagonist to homeopathy from the US and another from the UK will discussed in order to shed light on this important debate in health care. Stay tuned to find out who they are and why they maintain their point of view.

Study Sheds Light On Gluten Sensitivity

Gluten can cause problems for people even if they are not 'celiac.' You may not have any clue that your symptoms are associated with inflammation caused predominantly by wheat. Wheat is not the grain our grandparents saw 'waving in the wind.' It is only about 18 inches tall, and genetically modified. With each successive generation, there is less and less ability to digest 'food' such as this, which is not recognized as 'food' by the body.

A new study shows gluten can set off a distinct reaction in the intestines and the immune system, even in people who don't have celiac disease.

A relatively new form of 'energetic healing' is fascinating and extremely powerful. It is called Tong Ren. The body and the universe are reflections of each other. Both are only about 4% physical, and 96% energy, information, or vibrational frequency. Addressing the imbalances and blockages in that energy field while making the connection to the Universal Consciousness allows for amazing transformation in health and energy. Shifts occur rapidly because once roadblocks are removed, energy, communication, and information once again move through the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual realms.

Oftentimes, what you THINK is the problem, is NOT the problem. Symptoms are merely the body's attempt to create enough information to help us determine where the real problems are...even perhaps on other levels via blocked energy throughout the system.

This work can be done at a distance with as good results as in person. All we need is a phone connection and a willingness to allow for the possibility. Thousands of people in the last several years have been exposed to this treatment protocol and seen unbelievable shifts in their health, along with a better ability to deal with their relationships, their goals, their finances, build their businesses, improve their communities, their countries, and their world.

For more information, please contact me. You will be amazed at the process and the shifts.

For those who wonder why you just cannot heal, feel better, eat what you like and more, I seriously suggest you watch this video. On a supplement that can Restore gut immune system function as well as detox the environmental toxins from your system.
From Medical Medium. His radio shows can be found at www.hayhouseradio.com. You will need to create an account to listen live or obtain archives. WHAT IS/CAUSES ACID REFLUX? Many people experience acid reflux or heartburn throughout their lives and don’t understand why they feel the burning sensation reach up through their chest and into their throat. Medical professionals blame acid reflux on gastric acid and hydrochloric acid backing up into the esophagus. However, this theory of the cause is unfounded and limited in its understanding as I’ll explain in this article and the accompanying radio show. The digestive system is such a mystery that most of the time when physicians treat patients for illnesses, their practices are based solely on theory. Even the enzyme factor is just a theory. While enzymes do exist, all research and science can do at the moment is conjecture theory as to what they do and how they cooperate with the digestive process. Nobody actually understands enzymes. Nobody actually understands what happens when food enters the stomach. For example, it is possible to experience pain from gas all the way near the neck and by the shoulders, which can seem baffling because you may wonder how gas can travel to that area of the body (find out more about this in my book Medical Medium where I discuss ammonia permeability.) There is so much left for science and research to discover in the area of digestion, which is one reason there is so little helpful information on understanding and truly healing acid reflux once and for all. What is Acid Reflux Acid reflux, while it is in fact related to acids, is not due to gastric acids or hydrochloric acid from the stomach. If you or someone you know is experiencing acid reflux regularly, the acid is either coming from a bacteria or toxins in the liver and even the small intestinal tract, though the most common cause is bacterial. Medical communities have no idea that this is what is really behind this unpleasant condition. There are cases of acid reflux where there is an actual kink in the intestines or a hernia. However, if the cause is not a visible one, it is directly related to a weakened liver and bacterial growth. This bacteria produces an acid that mimics gastric acid and fools the physician into thinking that is what it is, when in fact it is not a stomach gland-produced acid at all. When you have bacteria and toxin-based acid coming up and causing acid reflux or heartburn, it means you actually have a lack of hydrochloric acid in your stomach. Hydrochloric acid is the good kind of acid that actually destroys bacteria, which in turn prevents acid reflux. In other words, if you have the bad acids, it means you do not have enough of the good acids. Acid reflux is also connected to a weakened liver. Typically weak digestion is due to an overburdened liver that cannot produce strong enough bile, which then forces the stomach to overproduce hydrochloric acid to compensate. This is extremely taxing on both of the organs and can then result in acid reflux. Bacteria builds up, sometimes in the duodenum or sometimes in the bottom of the stomach pouch, and there is not enough hydrochloric acid to fight it off. The hydrochloric acid in the stomach is actually a complex blend of seven different acids, which are yet to be discovered. Medical communities currently believe, mistakenly, that hydrochloric acid is just one acid. I shared this in my book Medical Medium. If someone has a diminished amount of three of the seven acids in hydrochloric acid, a doctor or health practitioner will not be able to spot the problem because the truth is unknown in medical science and research. The Three Goals for Healing Acid Reflux Healing acid reflux is not about taking a magic pill. Just as with the other conditions I have illuminated in my books, truly healing acid reflux takes a lifestyle shift in order to heal the true root issue. When healing acid reflux, there’s three goals: build up hydrochloric acid, kill off the unproductive bacteria like streptococcus or e. Coli, and strengthen the liver. As I will discuss below, all three of these things can be achieved with some dietary changes. There are some really helpful supplements to take, as well, that are powerful bacteria-fighters. However, the main shift will come with diet. Foods to Avoid The four most important foods to avoid when healing acid reflux are gluten, dairy, and eggs, and it can also be very helpful to lower or eliminate animal protein while you are healing. Gluten, dairy (milk, butter, cheese, cream, yogurt, milk kefir), and eggs are the favorite food source for bacteria and it will be very challenging to heal acid reflux if you are still eating them. If you hold the belief that yogurt or milk kefir heal the digestive tract because of their probiotic nature, it’s important to understand that the rest of what yogurt and milk kefir are made of still feed all unhelpful varieties of bacteria. Pathogens fuel themselves by eating, and if you remove gluten, dairy, and eggs from your own diet, you are removing the bacteria’s food and preventing it from festering. Even if you get the highest quality organic, free-range egg from a backyard hen, that egg will still feed the bacteria you are trying to fight off. It is unfortunate that so many people and well-intentioned practitioners still consider eggs as nature’s perfect food. They are in truth fueling the pathogens that medical communities are unaware are behind so much of chronic illness today. To find out more about pathogens and how they create problems, you can refer to my books Life-Changing Foods and Thyroid Healing. It’s helpful to lower or remove animal proteins while healing because of their inherently high fat content. All animal meats are high in fat, even if it has no skin and is not fried. This may be surprising because you might have been told for so long that eating chicken breast without the skin or “lean” cuts of meat will help you lose weight due to it being made mostly of protein. However, that is simply not true. Fat is all throughout the chicken breast and other “lean” meats, even if you make it in the cleanest way possible. By lowering your fat content through reducing your animal protein, you will give your liver the break it deserves. Having to process a high-fat and high-protein diet all day is incredibly exhausting for the liver and forces the stomach to overproduce hydrochloric acid to compensate. This is not a biased attack on eating animal protein. For example, if you’re eating a vegetarian or plant-based diet and are experiencing acid reflux, be sure to lower your fat intake by reducing the amount of nuts, oils, and other high fat that you consume. Lowering your fat, no matter what diet you’re on, is an essential step when wanting to heal acid reflux. I discuss the true unknown impact of our fat intake on our health and how the liver operates and responds in my book Liver Rescue (available in October 2018). What to Eat When healing from acid reflux, focus on eating plenty of healthy carbohydrates from fruit, potatoes, sweet potatoes, and winter squashes. You may have been told by professionals or family members or friends to avoid these foods, but fruits and potatoes are actually amazing disease fighters. Fruit is especially powerful in knocking down bacteria. If you’re concerned that fruit has too much sugar or you’re scared to eat it because you’ve been told it’s not good for you, I can’t stress enough how incorrect this myth is. Fruit sugar is not the same as processed sugars. It’s critical for your health and the health of your loved ones that you understand this. I know it can be hard to let go of what you may have been told before, but fruit has more to offer you and your health than you can possibly imagine. To find out more about why fruit is so critical and why fruit has been given such a bad rap, you can listen to my Fruit Fear radio show and read the Fruit Fear chapter in my book Medical Medium. It’s also helpful to consume plenty of salads with cucumbers and tomatoes. Tomatoes actually have their own special kind of vitamin C that can save someone’s immune system and give them extra support when fighting pathogens. Add spinach, mache, butter lettuce, or another leafy green of choice. Sprouts and microgreens are an especially amazing addition. Throw some raw onion and raw garlic into your salads for powerful bacterial-killers, and bring in as much fresh thyme, oregano, rosemary, and sage as you can for their incredible assistance in healing bacterial issues. If you enjoy avocado, you can add some slices of that too. You can read about the undiscovered physical, spiritual, and emotional healing benefits of each of this powerhouse foods in Life-Changing Foods, which also includes 50 wonderful healing recipes. The most miraculous food to include when fighting acid reflux is celery juice, which you can learn more about and get the recipe for in Thyroid Healing. Drinking a 16oz glass of straight celery juice (don’t add anything else to it for best results) every morning on an empty stomach restores the glands in the stomach that produce the seven-blend hydrochloric acid. There are undiscovered subgroups of mineral salts in celery juice that contribute to this process and ensure the hydrochloric acid is produced. Even drinking four to eight ounces of celery juice every morning can do wonders in healing acid reflux and heartburn. If you are experiencing bad acid reflux, you can even do two 16oz glasses of straight celery juice a day, one in the morning and one in the afternoon or before dinner. Antibacterials Eating a diet full of fruits and vegetables will naturally support you in your fight against the bacteria causing acid reflux. In truth, fruit is the most amazing antibacterial and liver healing food available to us. However, there are additional things we can do to fight the pathogen, such as including the following supplements. Goldenseal, elderberry tea, cat’s claw, and oregano oil are all incredible antibacterials that can be included on a regular or semi-regular basis. You can also consider licorice root tincture or tea and olive leaf because these herbs fight bacteria and help eliminate the gas that the bacteria produces that medical communities are unaware of. Additionally, considering adding herbal teas like fresh thyme tea, peppermint, elderflower, and lemon balm to your daily regimen. These herbal teas are powerful antibacterials and should not be underestimated. As always, please consult your practitioner before beginning a supplement protocol to discuss dosages. And when finding the right supplement, please visit my supplement directory. I have spent many hours bringing these together on one page. These are the exact supplements I personally trust. Not all supplements are created with the same integrity and there are many supplement companies out there that do not provide their consumers with the high quality products they promise. Moving Forward Now that you know the truth about what’s behind acid reflux and heartburn, you can take the steps needed to reduce and heal these conditions. If you are able to do one thing to improve your health today, celebrate that success and look forward to tomorrow when you can take another step toward healing. Focus on lowering your fat intake and drink celery juice every morning as you can. Include the supplements I recommend if you are ready for those. Enjoy plenty of vibrant, healing fruits and delicious salads. I have helped so many people over the years heal from acid reflux and heartburn from these simple lifestyle changes, and you too can experience healing and relief from this condition.
