The FDA, like a school-yard bully, is once again harassing the gentle practice of homeopathy, probably because it’s grown into a multi billion dollar industry that provides people alternatives to drugs. As the only historian on the scene anymore, I’ve watched the FDA and Health Canada launch vicious attacks against homeopathy for decades. The attacks on homeopathy have to be recycled every 10 years to brainwash a new generation of patients into believing that an homeopathy doesn’t work.
Critics usually describe homeopathy as useless, ineffective, containing no substance, and an outright placebo. Now in 2017 it’s suddenly become a dangerous drug that you must be protected from by the FDA! And to do that the FDA wants to puthomeopathic medicines through the billion-dollar drug approval process. But that makes them drugs because we know the FDA says only drugs can prevent or cure disease – so is the FDA saying that homeopathics can prevent or cure disease? It’s pretty frustrating to follow the “logic” of the FDA on this matter.
You can google my name and homeopathy and find several articles but start with “The Worst Crime of the Century” to find out what a blessing homeopathy could be if only medicine would pause long enough to understand it. Devoid of side effects, but effective enough to turn the tide of the Influenza Epidemic in 1918, homeopathy, as well as doctors like me, scare allopathic medicine because we point out the fallacy of putting all your eggs in one drug basket.
The crime is that while the FDA tries to put a kibosh on homeopathy, it gets its funding from supervising billion dollar trials on drugs that ALL have serious side effects up to and including death. Yes, I am drop-dead cynical about what’s happened to my profession and my colleagues who have become drug pushers and the motives of the FDA against a viable health alternative.
Unlike allopathic medicine, which proposed the use of drugs to quell symptoms of disease, homeopathy used minute traces of natural substances to encourage the body to fight the disease using its own remarkable resources. All the body requires is good building blocks to assist in health and healing. As most people are aware, to this day, homeopathy remains a major treatment modality in Europe and India. Its most celebrated adherents are the British Royal family, most of whom are well recognized for their good health and longevity.
A Natural News Article in 2009 presented the following information:
“Was homeopathy successful in treating the flu epidemic of 1918? Yes. While the mortality rate of people treated with traditional medicine and drugs was 30 percent, those treated by homeopathic physicians had mortality rate of 1.05 percent. Of the fifteen hundred cases reported at the Homeopathic Medical Society of the District of Columbia there were only fifteen deaths. Recoveries in the National Homeopathic Hospital were 100%. In Ohio, of 1,000 cases of influenza, Dr. T. A. McCann, MD, Dayton, Ohio reported NO DEATHS.”
At the precise time when we need safe solutions in health care; at a time when antibiotics are becoming less effective and many drugs are proving to be harmful, commonsense would say to explore homeopathy or at least allow people the choice to use it. Instead, anyone reading the news about the FDA’s clampdown on homeopathy, that’s been spread far and wide, won’t understand the underlying motives and will likely shun this safe solution.
I studied homeopathy in my naturopathic training and also did post grad studies. It’s a brilliant modality but I didn’t want to specialize, so I made it part of my toolkit, not the only tool. However, I worked with it enough to see how effective it can be. As I state in my Death by Modern Medicine book, the Flexner Report sounded the death knell for all medical schools that did not follow the drug-based German model. In one fell swoop, the Carnegie and Rockefeller Foundations stopped funding women’s schools, black schools, eclectic schools, and homeopathic schools. This was just another manipulation of fate that helped make us the very sick nation that we are today.
