Slipping standards

Recently Prof. Dame Sally Davies, Chief Medical Officer, ‘first physician’ in this country, called homeopathy ‘rubbish’ and its practitoners ‘peddlars’. 170 years ago, Christoph Wilhelm Hufeland, considered to be the greatest German physician of the late 18th century, had this to say about homeopathy:

The first reason inducing me to write is the fact that I considered it incorrect and unworthy of science to ridicule or persecute the new doctrine of homeopathy… I find suppression and despotism in science repugnant; here, the only rule should be freedom of spirit, basic research, the confutation of hypotheses, the comparison of observations, adherence to facts and not to personalities. (…)

Homeopathy must necessarily be contested if it intends to present itself as a general principle of every therapy. In fact, if this affirmation were to be taken literally, it could seem to be the grave of all sciences and human progress. (…)

But homeopathy is valid as a field of observation and, instead of being repudiated, should be used as a special method of cure, subordinate to the higher concepts of rational medicine.

On the basis of my personal observations, I am convinced that it can render a service not rarely, but sometimes in a highly striking manner, particularly after the failure of other treatments. (…)

I am not in favor of homeopathy, but of the inclusion of a homeopathic method in rational medicine. I would not speak of homeopathic physicians, but of physicians that use the homeopathic method at the right time and in the right place. [Hufeland, System der Prakt. Heilkunde, 1830)’.

Compared to this measured and considered statement, Prof Davies’ pronouncement comes across as not only ill-informed but as semi-illiterate.

The similia principle extends to other areas of life, for example that like is recognised by like. This is what Mahatma Ghandi had to say about Hahnemann and homeopathy:

“Dr. Hahnemann was a man of superior intellectual power and means of saving human life, having a unique medical nerve. I bow before his skill and the Herculean and humanitarian labour he did. The opponents hate the existence of the principles and practice of homeopathy, which in reality cures a larger percentage of cases than any other method of treatment, and it is beyond all doubt safer and more economical and the most complete medical science.”

Greatness recognises greatness. Smallness reduces greatness to its own size, and may even only see rubbish where there is gold.

Lest we forget – the debate continues unabated

Dr. Andrew Wakefield, ostracised by the medical establishment for reporting well conducted research, which poses uncomfortable questions for those who would like us to believe that there are no saftey concerns over the MMR vaccine, provides a succinct rebuttal of the charges made against him.

He is speaking at the 68th Annual Meeting of Association of American Physicians & Surgeons (AAPS)

This presentation is just 35 minutes long and shows, in a short, logical sequence, how the case against Dr Wakefield was fabricated, and why you need to access more than just Department of Health information regarding vaccine safety and efficacy to make the correct choice for yourself and your child:

The End of Evidence Based Medicine?

This is an article which appeared in no less a newspaper than the Washington Post. It pulls no punches. It says:
Commercially corrupted medicine is the leading cause of death in the US—and it is bankrupting the US budget. The Washington Post is addressing both issues in a powerful hard hitting investigative series by Peter Whoriskey titled: Can Medical Research be Trusted?
and:
The resounding verdict—much as our own five-part series, America’s Healthcare Crisis — is that medical research, medical journals, medical practice guidelines, FDA advisory panels, and doctors—all of who are bankrolled by the pharmaceutical industry—cannot be trusted!
It appears that Evidence Based Medicine is in deep crisis.

The scourge of wooly thinking finally hits the right target

If you like coffee…

If you like coffee… well, drink it, because it appears to be good for you. Since Hahnemann’s time, homeopaths tend to have a conflicting attitude towards coffee: as a medicine on the one hand (esp. in homeopathic doses!) and as a poison on the other (and as a so-called ‘antidote’ to the homeopathic remedies). Current research (and there is plenty) suggests that moderate consumption of coffee is good for the liver, the pancreas, the heart, the mood, the brain etc. Esp. ‘dark roast’ seems to do the trick. So, enjoy (but avoid the non tax paying corporations, and find a good local coffee shop – or, of course, brew your own).

What we always knew – the Science & Technology Report was flawed

An independent critique written by Earl Baldwin of Bewdley concluded that the committee’s report was “an unreliable source of evidence about homeopathy.”

 

Read the Report here, the responses from MPs, Government, patients and practitoners:

It is encouraging to see that an attempted stitch-up is exposed for what it is, albeit belatedly. Cleverness without integrity often backfires.
