Homeopathic Remedies are vastly under-rated, mainly due to the bad publicity given them. This movement against homeopathy is driven by drug companies who are keen to have homeopathic medicines deleted from our list of options. Drug companies fear homeopathy. If only the truth were known about the efficacy of homeopathy, when the correct remedy is given, then drug companies could find their profits dwindling dramatically. This is the last thing that they want. And so homeopathy continues to walk a dusty road alongside conventional pharmaceutical treatments whose companies take the fastest bus to the bank.
Hear Ye! Hear Ye!…….Nevertheless, there are still a few ‘quacks’ and alternative people about, such as the Queen and Prince Charles, who have used the Royal homeopathic practitioners since day one to cure their maladies. The Queen Mother used them all her life and lived to be 101. So, there you go.
Why Are Drug Companies Against Homeopathy?
The truth is that Homeopathy is inexpensive, as well as effective. It is only a fraction of the cost of buying your average medication. It is not harmful to the body. If the wrong remedy is given, any negative effects can be counteracted by the antidotal remedy, or simply by using the remedy which is better suited to the patient, and which should have perhaps been given in the first place.
Homeopathic remedies are taken only for as long as is needed to cure the complaint. Generally speaking, as soon as improvement is noted, then the dose is reduced, and soon after,when the symptoms have almost disappeared, the medicine is stopped. This scenario is the opposite of what usually happens at the doctor’s office, where people are often given medications ‘for life’, which suits both the chemical manufacturers who make the drug, as well as the doctor himself.
The amount of people over 50 who are ‘on’ drugs for the duration of their lives, such as warfarin, presnozone, Fosamax, etc, is absolutely shocking. Because most of these people, with the help of their doctor or naturopath or homeopath, could have CORRECTED the problem initially, making the taking of pharmaceutical medications for life unnecessary. By adjusting the diet appropriately, by cleansing, by prayer and mediatation, and by using vitamins, minerals, and HOMEOPATHY, many of these over 50’s people could have staved off the taking of medication ‘for life’.
I was once told by a doctor, after I stopped drinking alcohol and was in a bad way because of depression, that I had some inherent mental disturbance which I was cursed with, and so I would need to take amytryptaline for the rest of my life. I took his prescription home, but the stuff made me feel doped, and so I threw them away. I have never taken any medications for my nerves in all that time since, which is now 14 years ago. And nor have I ever had any more alcohol, or done anything really terrible. What’s more, I am happy and content with my life. If I had believed that doctor, I would be more than a walking zombie by now, with, probably, water retention, arthritis, and obesity. I have none of these, Praise God.
Anyway – Doctors certainly can be helpful, and sometimes it is necessary to take their medications, such as antibiotics. But the taking of drugs ‘for life’ is something to be wary of.
We have been conditioned through drug companies’ persistent advertising, which we currently see on television every night, that taking drugs for anything is ‘normal’. Drugs can easily be bought over the counter for the most common of ailments: Drugs for cold or flu. Drugs for pain in the head. Drugs for arthritic pain. Drugs for digestive upsets. Drugs for allergies, and sensitivity to plants or chemicals. Even taking these drugs over a short period of time will be harmful to some part of the body, if not every part. It seems a tragedy that people are hooked into taking drugs which have the potential to harm them, when Homeopathic remedies could have fixed the problem in most cases, without doing any harm to the vital organs, and without any danger of becoming addicted, which is always a possibility with pharmaceutical medications.
As for long-term medications: Most of these medications, such as warfarin and fosimax, are not ‘for life’ at all – rather, they are ‘for death’, as they are generally a road to a quicker death through some other break-down of the organs. The organs, such as the heart, lungs, kidneys, liver, pancreas, and the veins themselves, become weakened as a result of taking these drugs over a long period of time.
Fosamax, which is often given to people with osteoporosis, is capable of destroying the bone in the jaw. This condition is called necrosis of the jaw. Some people have had to have the jaw removed, because the pain from the jaw is just so incredibly awful. Fosamax is known to cause a weakening of the bones, when it is in fact meant to strengthen them.
Giving Fosamax to people for bone problems seems to me to be down-right irresponsible. This practice is, in fact, regarded as criminal by many: There are lawyers in the US who specialize in dealing with Fosamax cases, there are just so many of them.
There is enough evidence to show that Fosamax causes problems with people’s health, and makes them sick in many cases, yet the stuff continues to be prescribed without warning to all those patients who implicitly trust their doctor and the drug companies.
My aunt was given Fosamax a couple of years ago. She immediately began to experience many of the side effects of fosamax which were listed on a paper inside the packet:
These were: Nausea. Constipation alternating with diarrhoea. Loss of appetite. Headache. Bone pain. Etc, etc. She complained about these side effects to her doctor. The vomitting was troubling her very much. He prescribed ANOTHER chemical medication to take, to mask the symptoms of nausea, so that she now takes the two drugs – Fosamax, and the nausea antidote.
Suggestions For Some Alternative Remedies For Bone Complaints which my aunt could have tried:
First of all, the diet would need to be looked at. Help from a naturopath would be recommended, to make sure the diet is rich in alkaline greens, has adequate protein, adequate mineral and vitamin content. Plenty of celery, which is wonderful for strengthening bones, carrots, onions, and green vegetables would be important. Including two apples a day in the diet, or at least drinking the juice, would have been very helpful. Eating fish several times a week would be helpful. Bone broth stews, such as those made from tail bones, would be nourishing to the bones. Eating sardines daily as an alternative to meats would be good. As well as a good diet, the following could have been tried:
More magnesium to help the absorption of calcium. More calcium-magnesium rich foods such as sesame seeds, sunflower seeds and almonds.
More sun for Vitamin D. More Halibut liver oil for its Vitamin A and D content. Vitamin D helps to build and maintain healthy strong bones.
More daily Vitamin C, such as non-acidic Calcium Ascorbate, which helps to detoxify poisons from the body, helps to renew tissues, helps prevent infection, and also helps keep the blood alkaline. It also helps to soothe the nerves and encourages a good night’s sleep. It is a mild sedative and a mild pain killer which helps to heal bones at the same time.
One of the following Homeopathic Remedies may have been helpful instead of taking Fosamax: Homeopathic Phosphorous; The cell salts Calc.fluor; Calc. phos; Ferr. phos and Mag phos, and Silica.
Calcarea Fluor. can help bone pain. It can also help to stop roughness or nodules appearing on the outside of the bones.
Calcarea Phos. helps to strengthen soft bones.
Ferrum phos is a good one to use at the beginning of a bone disorder, when joints can seem painful and swollen. This remedy can be taken as a cell salt several times a day for chronic cases, in alternation with another specific remedy for the bones.
These are just suggestions. You need to seek advice from a qualified homeopath before using these remedies if your problem is serious, to make sure that you are on the right track with the right remedy, or remedies.
