    I completely agree that life-threatening, powerful diseases should be treated with powerful allopathic medicine like chemotherapy and other drugs, but emotional-based and mild disorders like stress, lack of appetite, light inflammation, small rashes etc. have always gone away easier with me through homeopathy and been exacerbated by stronger medication.

    Obviously a homeopath can take hours to talk to a patient, their overhead is sugar and water. Doctors have to invest and buy items that take hundreds of thousands of dollars in research and development to work provably, rather than eating a piece of bark and going "that gave me a headache, must cure headaches!"

    Before flood people lived nearly 1000 years.
    Today we cant make it to a 100.
    I understand that flood change environment we live in so much that everyone who was born after the flood were declining their life span and in just few hundred years came down to today's average of 80 years.
    So i am not so sure medicine makes our life longer by any means.
    Sure it helps us to heal, but healing you does not make your life longer.
    Sure it may save you from death, but i doubt it will make you live longer then average expected number of years.

  • The Reprehensible
    The Reprehensible 6 days ago +1

    The harm of this sort of thing is that it DOESN'T heal them, it merely applies a placebo affect to them which CAN help with some cases... But not every disease or oddity in the body can be repelled via placebo.
    Worse, the few successes that result can cause the people that use these faulty remedies to suggest them to others, which can lead to serious infections and death since a placebo's effects are variable as hell.

    TL;DR: Placebos are bad because they inspire confidence that leads to a false sense of security.
    It's akin to using a cardboard box as a bunker to hide from a nuclear detonation.
    You might somehow survive a nuke within one at a distance, but telling other people to do this instead of finding proper shelter or fleeing the threat is a bad, BAD thing.

    So there is PLENTY wrong with allowing this ignorance to spread.
    Ignorance and false security kills.

      _"Worse, the few successes that result can cause the people that use these faulty remedies to suggest them to others, which can lead to serious infections and death since a placebo's effects are variable as hell."_
      First of course is that the so-called "placebo effect" is nothing more than a fancy term for the spontaneous remission as always happens in some cases. So the placebo did nothing - rather the person's immune system finally got ahold of the situation and defeated the illness....................an action the person then incorrectly ascribes to the placebo.
      Moral of the story: to as you alluded to = the real problem with homeopathy is that is can lead people to not seek medical treatment in favor of these panaceas which as noted are not reliable. That can result in unnecessary suffering and even death in extreme cases.

      A repost from an earlier comment by:

      "Howl&Richard
      "
      2 months ago (edited)
      Basis document being referenced:
      "Efficacy of homeopathy in livestock according to peer-reviewed publications from 1981 to 2014 ".
      C. Doehring, DVM and A. Sundrum, PhD, DVM 2016

      The retort:
      "Did you even read that same study you linked?
      "
      According to it, things like the potency of the homeopathic medicine, it's composition or what it was prescripted for had no relevance to its effect. There was also too high of a variance on diseases being tested or animals subjected to the trials:
      "A classic comparison of the individual clinical trials within a systematic review according to the principles of evidence-based medicine was not possible. These principles involve randomisation, blinding and several clinical trials performed on the same species, disease and remedy to be evaluated in a systematic way. A large heterogeneity among all clinical trials was found."
      It also mentions how plenty of relevant information to the trials was undisclosed, thus it cannot be repeated (that's a VITAL part of the scientific method, as you may know):
      "Within the studies considered, the use of the same remedy administered to the same species with a comparable medical indication was not repeated. Thus, the results lack any reproducibility."
      There was also no clear definiton on what implied "being completely cured" on the subjects, with very variable definitions on it. Again, poor science.
      The conclusion itself on that same study says it clearly:
      "Due to a lack of prognostic validity, replacing or reducing antibiotics with homeopathy currently cannot be recommended unless evidence of efficacy is reproduced by RCTs and proven in various farm practice conditions."

      "Basically, you have given us a link that proves nothing, as acknowledged by the same guys doing the study."

    So if homeopathy is just people believing that stuff would work and It does, wouldn't it work better with ACTUAL medicine that ACTUALLY helps you and people would believe it works because it ACTUALLY does?

  • Bryce Boyer
    Bryce Boyer 7 days ago +1

    Although homeopathy cannot be proven through a scientific method using bio chemistry, in quantum bio electric feedback that's another story. This is a topic more touchy than veganism because people think homeopaths are ripping people off and are a bunch of ignorant and heartless thieves... I disagree with this immensely having a number of homeopathic, naturopathic, and DO's as my friends and seeing their genuine care and commitment to helping their patients. I also know from first hand experience with homeopathy that it worked for me immensely regardless of my incredible skepticism. Maybe the placebo works even when you don't believe something will work? Issues I've had for years eased off significantly, perhaps unconsciously I let go of something that was making me sick.
    1 thing that can be proven by science is structured water, a big selling point of homeopathy. There are tons of documentaries and studies on this with physicists, doctors, etc. so start looking into it if you want to learn more. Something that has been proven is how our intention, emotion, and conditioning towards something changes its physicality in a dramatic way. So if water truly does retain information, as any other substance would being that we're all vibrating photons and quarks depending on how you look at it, would that not imply that by drinking or ingesting that water it would positively impact us with the vibration, or with the essence of the intention, emotion, conditioning etc.?
    I don't know anything but I am fascinated by all of this and love to learn about it. I feel like there is a missing component in medicine and it's ultimately the bio-energy side of treating illness. Take light or laser based therapies right? Energy based treatments that have been proven to work countless times all through photons and vibration. It's the same coin, different sides.
    Anyways, keep researching all of this! While some homeopathy may be bullshit, perhaps there are components of it that are actually usable and effective? Never think you know anything because as soon as you do, you're trapped.

    So...that big list of things you couldn't do to make homeopathy work included basically a lot of things that might make an illness worse, yet it was the remedies themselves that did the actual work.
    Wow. Sometimes the degree to which old-timey medicine could get things wrong still amazes me.

      This only happen when u hate something/someone so much so form the inside that u start to live with that hatred..
      Our body is pool of germ cells..
      They behave in unison to make it function..
      ( Say) if u start to hate me.. ur cells in the body will get confused and start hating each other..
      Thus producing cancer cell..
      These cancer cells are produced every single time u hate..

    I'm surprised that this video makes an excellent point - that homeopathy reassures and cares about the chronically ill in a way that scientific medicine does not. I really understand the sense of hopelessness and despair from going to doctor to doctor to receive no help, and the desperation to try ANYTHING to make you well. But then I feel like homeopathy is taking advantage, knowingly or not, of this desperation, which I find morally abhorrent.

    Although both my parents are homoeopathic doctors, I do agree with the points put forward in this video. But firstly, fact is that homoeopathy works! Now, ik that these medicines are extremely dilute, exceeding Avogadro's limit, but since these medicines are made up of mainly carbon compounds, according to kohlrausch's law, the ions of a carbon compound are fully expressed in infinite dilution, so that's that...
    And also my father took me to CCRH(idk the exact full form but it's the research institute of homeopathy in india) and saw experiments being conducted by some botanists on a culture. They took Thuja medicine(it is known to be a cell inhibitor) of different dilutions in different cultures and viola, the results were in favour of homoeopathy....

    "Faith can move mountains but sugar water can't cure cancer" contradiction much? Scientists and doctors don't like to talk about the placebo effect because they can't predict, control or monetize it. But as the video says, it *does* work. It even cures cancer. Just not predictably.

    Homeopathy doctor 🤒 : Nah , You should add more water , not tea powder and sugar.
    My niece knows it better... One more example..
    Suppose , If there are 2 sets of 100 patients with the same disease.( Total 200) .We gave homeo pills to first set of 100 patients and plain water for next set of 100 patients.
    60 people became disease free from the first set (They took homeo pill)
    60 people became disease free from the second set (The took plain water)
    Homeo pill = Plain water.
    This is not merely an example , but this is what happens all the time.!!!! 😂

    Am I the only one who finds it amusingly curious that most people in this comment section defending homeopathy have indian names?
    I am not drawing any conclusions of causality here (to each his own), just stating the pretty much obvious correlation.

      Modern medicine is a negation of health. It isn't organized to serve human health, but only itself, as an institution. It makes more people sick than it heals.

      Sudhir Joshi Lol.. look how shamelessly you diverted the criticism against Homeopathy just because you dont have an answer. People can see and understand. Dont delete that..
      1. I'm not a beliver of any of blind superstitions even if it comes under the umbrella of islam.
      2. India is not your father's property. I will live here , and will not go to a shit country like pakistan just because some hindu terrorist told me to do.
      3. Come to kerala , and see how lovely hindus , muslims and christians we have here. We live together , eat together , work together without any problems and with all the social harmony , and thats why we are the best state in india. and you northies , still pooping and peeing on railway tracks. Thinking shitt doing shitt.. becoming a burden to mother india.. LOL 😂
      4. Now defend homeopathy , if you have any word. Otherwise stfu.

      If you think that the germanic tribes had no medicine, then you are mistaken. You should educate yourself in this regard.

    Great video as always but I think you're a little too forgiving of homeopathy, even though you systematically debunk it. To even pose the question "Gentle Healing or Reckless Fraud?" in the title is irresponsible, since it gives an air of legitimacy to an incredibly harmful unscientific practice. There is no such thing as alternative medicine. Only medicine that actually works and "medicine" that doesn't. If a treatment has empirical evidence supporting its effectiveness, then it's introduced into medicine. If it doesn't, it's not. If any system branded "alternative medicine" had real evidence supporting it (or in the case of homeopathy, was even physically fucking possible) they would be medically accepted treatments used in hospitals around the globe.

    Great video, but I think there's an inherent flaw with your solution of spending a lot of time with patients. That is numbers. Every single day, a doctor could handle tens, if not more than a hundred of patients. Are doctors going to spend hours with them? No. Time spent with a patient is also time that could be used to save another. Also, if done consistently enough, we'd have patients booking for a checkup weeks in advance. First, they would probably have been worse or completely cured by that time; second, they would feel just as left out. The real reason why homeopaths can do this is the fact that compared to medicine, they have fewer people believing in them. Not to mention that their medicine don't really do anything and is most likely the last choice of a cornered patient so there's no real pressure there.

    The placebo effect works even when you know it's a placebo. It's unconscious.
    Plus doctors shouldn't empathise too much with patients, it can make them less objective. I think seeing a regular therapist would fill that need, if only we started valuing and providing that sort of care.
