He feels that it is disgusting...
From Dr. S:
In this short explaination of Homeopathy I will discuss three issues, the founder, the philosophy and the remedies used for treatment.
I will also point out that Homeopathy is NOT a Natural or Holistic therapy, not even alternative healing.To quote Taber's Cyclopedic Medical Dictionary, (the standard medical dictionary in the United States), Homeopathy, a School of Medicine, it does not make this statement for Naturopathy, Herbology, Chiropractic etc. or any other natural therapy.
Dr. Samuel Hanhemann ( 1755 - 1843 ), a medical doctor, after years of orthodox medical practice became dissatisified with his therapy. He developed his own system, using the same medical drugs of the era, but in very small even invisible dosages. I repeat he used the same chemical drugs, animal parts, herbs, reptiles, insects, metals, minerals, acids, and radioactive material which are still employed by modern homeopathic and medical doctors.
He believed that the remedies took on the spirit, especially in the case of the animals, reptiles, and insects. A common practice of his was to suffocate live birds into the alcohol to capture the spirit of the animal into the remedy. This is still practiced today in such homeopathic remedies as Formica Rufa or Myrmexine, used in the treatment of arthritis, which is made from crushed live ants.
He did not believe that we could depend on nature to treat disease and illness as stated in his book The Organon of Medicine written in 1810. Some of his fundamental beliefs were recorded in this work. He felt that nature was undependabe as a healing agent, most of nature was unusable in its natural state, and if it did cure disease it was only by chance. He felt the only certain cures were remedies manufactured by the physician.
These views are exactly the views of most orthodox medical doctors today, certainly not the views of Holistic or Natural Practitioners.
The word Homeopathy is taken from the Greek, homoios meaning like and pathos meaning disease, thus like disease. The basic premise is that a substance, any substance, that in a large dose would cause a particular toxic reaction, is applied for a disease that resembles this same toxic reaction, but in an extremely small dose. This dose is so small and diluted that it is invisable to normal laboratory equipment and testing. This is why it is sometimes referred to as energetic medicine, nothing can be detected.
The substance used are the same substance used by modern medicine. Plants are used as with drug manufacture but also Animal Waste, Organs, Infected Tissue and Puss, Insects, Reptiles, Metals, Minerals, Toxic Acids and Radioactive Material. Some of the substances used, such as Arsenic, Cyanide and Smallpox, are so lethal even extremely small amounts are deadly. Most people find it exteremely repulsive to even think of ingesting the aforementioned material in any dosage whether energetic or not. For this reason Homeopaths, like their brothers the Medical Doctors, using the same material in different dosages, do not tend to disclose or discuss the ingredients of their so-called remedies. most Americans are shocked to discover that common drugs like estrogens and birth control pills are made from horse urine, anti-viral drugs form bird and bat manure even vitamin B-12 from sewage sludge.
Again a homeopath will use ANY material, regardless of how toxic or disgusting, to create a remedy. Their sole focus is to find an agent, that in large doses would cause a toxic reaction similar to the disease the person is afflicted with, and give them that SAME element in a very small dose. Finding a drug or remedy to treat a disease is not Holistic. This is identical therapy to modern medical treatment. This is in direct conflict with the philosophy of Natural and Holistic Medicine. Natural Healing treats the whole person and aids the body/mind/spirit to heal itself by creating a lifestyle and environment that promotes wellness and healing. Foods, Juices and Plants are used to nourish the body and to assist with elimination, cleansing and detoxification. Hydrotherapy, Body Work Therapies and Movement/Exercise are used to stimulate the circulation, restructure, and remove blockages and Psychotherapy, Counseling, Meditation and Spritual Practice are used to promote a positive attitude, self love and a connection with our higher self. Wellness is simply a way of life where one stops doing hte things that made them sick in the first place and creates a new lifestyle that promotes health and well being.
As stated earlier homeopathic drugs are manufactrued using any material that is felt to be effective. The general public when kept ignorant will swallow almost anything. This is especially true today.
As mentioned earlier, If most women knew that birth control pills and hormone replacement drugs were made from horse urine they might object to the usage of such drugs, and in turn hopefully pressure the pharmaceutical industry to return to the herbs that were used a few years ago, although a bit more costly to the manufacturer.
It is true that Homeopathy employs the use of plants, in visible dosages, but it is also true that almost 1/2 of their medicines are made from some of the most disgusting material known. I believe in this manner the Homeopaths have surpassed the medical profession, in fact their material is worse that any bizarre Science
fiction film made. The following is a brief list, only a small sample of Homeopathic Remedies. If you have any doubt about this go to your local library or medical school and look at any Homeopathic Meteria Medica yourself, or ask your Homeopathic Doctor and watch him squirm around as he tries to answer, Ready;
Insects: Crushed alive ants, honey bees, papal cross spiders, cockroaches, bedbugs, lady bugs, black Cuban spiders, wood louse, head lice, plant lice, centipede, the common flea, orange spiders, Spanish spiders, grey spiders, Australian black spiders, the fly, potato bug, locusts, live wasps, caterpillars, scabies mites and kissing bugs.
Snakes and Reptiles and Fish: Crawfish, red starfish, roasted sponge, yellow viper, toad poison, copperhead snake, red coral, rattlesnakes, coral snake, disestive fluid of the lobster, fish fossils, jellyfish, purple fish, cobra snake, inky juice of cuttlefish, leeches, German vipers, gila monster, king crab blood, moccasin snake, stinging fish and adder snakes.
Animal and Human Parts, Disease, and Unknown origin material: Adrenal gland secretion, Whale morbid secretions, a maceration of a tuberculous lung, botulism poison, saliva of a rabid dog, animal charcoal, a cancer nosode, rudimentary thumbnail of a horse, the beaver, cholesteral from the gall bladder lining, diphtheria virus, fecal matter taken from the amniotic fluid of an unborn horse, pancreatic fluid, dogs milk, lecithin from animal brains, horse grease, gonorrheal virus, skunks, musk, animal oil, ovarion extract, lunch mucus containing the virus whooping cough, pituitary gland, septic pus from cow flesh decomposed in the sun for 2 weeks, muscle tissue acids, protein from decomposed human fecal matter, syphilis virus, thyroid gland of sheep, a nosode from a tubercular abscess, smallpox puss, cats milk, gall stones, anthrax bacteria and testicle extract.

This is not an investigation of whether homeopathy is an effective treatment. Certainly there are people worldwide that claim benefits. But just because a therapy works, such as the case of modern orthodox medicine, doesn't mean that it is natural. A further definition of natural could be a therapy, treatment or remedy that helps the body to heal itself, without intervention, that also has no toxic physical, emotional or spiritual side effects.
Hippocrates has been associated with modern medicine and is hailed as the Father. Modern Orthodox Medicine even follows their blasphemous Hippocratic Oath. The fundamental rule of Hippocrates was Do No Harm. He was a great herbalish and Natural Healer, not a medical doctor, and he clearly understood the dangers of killing a patient with your therapy. It is estimated that millions of people die in the United States and Europe each year from latrogenic (physician created) death. This death is usually caused by drugs and surgical procedures. It appears the medicine is deaf for the words of its father.
Homeopathy uses many exteremly toxic and lethal substances, in so called invisible dosages. History is rampant with mistake after mistake coverups, when the deadly substances were underestimated. It is believed that some have been cured of cancer from the use of extremely toxic chemotherapy. At the same time thousands have died from the damage caused by these drugs and their side effects, and not the cancer.
The polio and smallpoc vaccines have been recalled, after millions have been exposed, and found to be bacterial and viral nightmares. Even x-rays, a so called miracle of modern science, are advised with caution after simple dental x-rays and mammograms were found to cause cancer. Many diagnostic routines cause worse disease than the original problem.
What price do you pay for using dangerous diagnostic techniques, debilitating surgeries, toxic drugs and filthy remedies and therapy that can cause side effects sometimes worse than your original illness, only the future will tell for sure. In the mean time beware of Medicine that is sold as holistic and natural, but is actually neither. To be safe, always ask, what the product and every ingredient is made from.
Buyer Beware, Chinese Herbal Medicine - the animal slaughter continues
Traditional Chinese Herbal Medicine has been practiced for thousands of years and still today, many species of animals are being tortured and killed for their superstitious potions and voodoo remedies.
I would like you to consider the following if you purchase Chinese Herbal Products.
I visited one local Santa Monica Chinese Herbal Store and found out what they considered herbal. In their herbal tonics I found animal sexual organs, gecko lizards, deer antlers, placenta, tortoise shell, fish, caterpillar fungus and pearls. Quoting from their Herbal Tonics catalog it says "this formula contains 41 herbs, three of which are male animal sexual organs." Later on it states "supertonic herbs such as deer antler" and calls "pearl, a very special herbal substance." I do not consider animal sexual organs, deer antler and pearls to be herbs! Other stores I visited sold musk extracted from deer testicles and snake cream from cobras that were skinned alive. I also found bear gall bladders and bile and you should be aware that many American and Canadian bear have been found dead in the forest with their gall bladders cut out. The current price I was quoted recently from a forest ranger was $5,000.00.
Animals are being butchered all over the world for Herbal Medicine. Tigers and the Rhinoceros are now extinct in the wild.
The Chinese claim that by eating the penis of Tigers men can regain their sexual stamina and prowess. It is one of the most sought after Chinese herbal tonics. People always hope for the shortcuts to health. Men all over the world would rather believe eating a tigers penis will give them an erection instead of getting healthy and being in love. The tiger's bones are believed to help arthritis, the tiger's nose for epilepsy and seizures and even the tiger's whiskers for toothache. Because of this ongoing poaching of endangered species, tigers are almost extinct. While Chinese Herbal shops swear they don't sell tiger parts, they do. In a trip to China town in San Francisco recently 45 herbal shops were visited. Of the 45, over half of them had illegal tiger parts. One shop had entire tiger skeletons and skin.
Because tiger parts are getting harder to acquire, the Chinese herbalists have turned to rhinoceros horns hoping that these horns might have the same supposed sexual stimulating powers as the tiger penis. Because of this, rhinoceros have been slaughtered by the thousands all over Africa, some even shot by helicopter gun ships strafing the herds and then trucks coming by afterwards sawing off the horn and then leaving the entire rhino dying on the ground. In efforts to stop the slaughter many African countries have dehorned the rhinos, to save their lives, but the poachers are still killing them just to dig the stump of the horn out.
The Bottom Line. I feel we should have an all out boycott of Chinese herbs and these so-called herbal shops until they go 100% animal and insect free. Thousands of years ago, the people who lived on this planet had to do many things to survive. The Chinese system of Medicine is supposedly over 6,000 years old. The American Indians used herbs for healing too but still the vast majority of their materia medica was animal organs also. If we were to all of a sudden have no food, clothing, shelter and herbs, we would all quickly go back to these ways of living to survive. But we do have great food, and great herbs, and plenty of shelter, head and hot water, so it is time to abandon these ancient survival systems of medicine for new healthier ways that don't involved the killing, torture and extinction of our animal friends.
