A thorn in the side of naturopathy

by | May 27, 2015 | Uncategorized

Natural medicine is making leaps and bounds in labs, companies and medicine cabinets.

However, among the supplements and OTC products are the homeopathic remedies that are sold and purchased with a defiant belief or trust that they will have a positive effect of some sort.

When I am asked for my personal opinion, I make it clear that I am stating my own thoughts: I do not believe in homeopathy; rather I am opposed to selling what makes no sense. When I heard that a company enforces a rule to only walk in one direction in the making of homeopathic products, well, I did find it entertaining to say the least, but ridiculous at the same time.

What really annoys me are the claims that homeopathy can never do any harm, then listen to someone prattle off about the need for a particular potency and how taking any other could be so detrimental. Then there are clients, who disappointed with the lack of efficacy, will ask why it didn’t work -often they are told that their mint containing toothpaste or some other vibrational blocker stopped the remedy from working. SMH.

It virtually makes no sense.

Now, I do adhere to principles of vibration, but my beliefs hinge on the practical application of visualization and meditation. Complete vibrational connection that is free! While I cannot dispute the power of belief, I  cannot defend a fraudulent form of natural remedies that claim to be something they are not. It simply defies logic, goodwill and science.

I encourage people to focus their thoughts on a positive path, to discover what works for them with their beliefs and inspires creative thinking. I respect people who choose to use homeopathy simply because every human deserves respect. Homeopathy as a principle, I cannot respect, and I would enjoy seeing the psuedo-science behind it flushed because misleading people and making a profit on naivete is not an act of professionalism or kindness.

I have opinions on the supplement market (many of them positive) with a twist of curiosity at the strange ingenuity to bottle and market certain by-products of the food industry -perhaps in my next blog I will explore this a little further.
