For Homeopathy To Survive In A Modern Knowledge Society, Homeopaths Should Learn A Little Science!
Homeopaths should be aware of a hard truth: Without providing a DIRECT and convincing answer to the fundamental question “what is the active MATERIAL FACTOR of potentized drugs”, and without proposing a viable BIOLOGICAL MECHANISM for its therapeutic actions, in a way that could be subjected to validation by SCIENTIFIC METHODS, there is no hope for homeopathy to SURVIVE in an enlightened modern knowledge society.
Simply quoting those dogmatic APHORISMS of master, declaring ‘our master is the greatest scientist’, and poo-pooing about the ‘limitations of modern science’, is of no good any more, other than further alienating and marginalizing ourselves from mainstream scientific community.
Please understand, by talking theories of ‘vital force’, ‘dynamic drug energy’, ‘electromagnetic drug signatures’, ‘biomagnetic field resonance’, ‘quantum entanglement’ , ‘spiritual healing’, ‘non-material drug power’ and all those NONSENSE, you are contributing nothing positive for homeopathy, but making it more and more INCOMPATIBLE with modern scientific knowledge system, and proving ourselves not worthy of any serious consideration as a SCIENTIFIC medical system.
Only MIT can RATIONALLY answer the fundamental question “what is the active MATERIAL FACTOR of potentized drugs”, and propose a viable BIOLOGICAL MECHANISM for its therapeutic actions, in a way that could be subjected to validation by SCIENTIFIC METHODS.
Earlier the homeopathy community realize the importance and implications of MIT for the survival and advancement of homeopathy, the better. If you fail or hesitate by prejudices to understand and accept this wonderful concept, homeopathy will be the ultimate loser, NOT ME.
You cannot dream about making homeopathy SCIENTIFIC, and getting recognized as a MEDICAL SCIENCE, unless you are ready to abandon the UNSCIENTIFIC concepts of VITAL FORCE and DYNAMIC DRUG ENERGY.
These concepts originated from the PRE-SCIENTIFIC world outlook of primitive man, and remain today as part of RELIGION and OCCULT.
What ever intellectual circus you play, SCIENCE never accepts VITAL FORCE and DYNAMIC ENERGY. ULTRA_SCIENTIFIC and FRINGE SCIENCE theoretical pretensions no way help in making them SCIENTIFIC.
Homeopaths should realize that VITAL FORCE and DYNAMIC ENERGY concepts are the greatest stumbling blocks that prevent homeopathy from getting recognized as a MEDICAL SCIENCE.
We have to explain homeopathy in scientific terms, using scientific paradigms, in a way fitting to the modern BIOCHEMISTRY, PHARMACOLOGY and LIFE SCIENCES, and prove it using SCIENTIFIC METHODS.
WE HAVE NO OTHER OPTIONS, IF WE WE WANT HOMEOPATHY TO SURVIVE IN THIS ERA OF SCIENTIFIC AWARENESS AND ENLIGHTENMENT. BY RESISTING SUCH A TRANSFORMATION, YOU ARE DIGGING THE GRAVE FOR HOMEOPATHY!!
If you cannot say an emphatic ‘NO’ to ‘ENERGY MEDICINE HOMEOPATHY’ of all shades and colors, you cannot LEARN, PRACTICE and PROPAGATE homeopathy as a MEDICAL SCIENCE. You cannot effectively communicate with scientific community as EQUALS, and say HOMEOPATHY IS SCIENCE- NOT FAITH HEALING OR OCCULT.
Some of my friends think I am too RIGID and CLOSE-MINDED while saying ‘NO’ to ‘energy medicine’ discussions ON MY PAGES.
You should not forget, ENERGY MEDICINE is nothing about the ENERGY forms that we study in physics. They are talking about a mysterious HEALING ENERGY, which is IMMATERIAL, DYNAMIC, and ACTING without any MATERIAL medium. It is part of philosophy of DYNAMISM and VITALISM. Totally negating ALL the scientific knowledge.
They talk about a mysterious MEDICINAL ENERGY, transferred into the potenizing medium as ELECTROMAGNETIC SIGNATURES, acting upon the VITAL FORCE through BIOMAGNETIC RESONANCE even from a distance. Sir, are you asking me to be OPEN MINDED towards this nonsense?
Would you ask me to be open minded to OCCULTS and WOODOO? To be open minded to hair transmission, photo transmission and telephone transmission of homeopathic DRUG ENERGY? You want me to be open minded to PAPER REMEDIES? To be open minded to DRUG ENERGY converted as DIGITAL files and UPLOADED/DOWNLOADED through internet? To be open minded to HOMEOPATHIC REFLEXOLOGY and DOWSING? Sorry, sir, I am RIGID!!
A reputed HOMEOPATH from US says in an article on his website:
“A physician treating a patient with homeopathy may also use more novel delivery systems, such as an SI card to be kept within an inch of the chest or upper back, or even a laser beamed at specific points of the body.”
“Because this is done energetically and informationally, remedies don’t even need water to work. They can be administered by a Systems Information (SI) card, for instance, which patients carry with them. Their effect is the same.”
Are you asking me to be OPEN MINDED to this NOVEL DELIVERY SYSTEM also?
PETER CHAPPEL, a world-famous proponent of ENERGY MEDICINE HOMEOPATHY, explains his method of SYNTHESIZING homeopathic drugs SPECIFIC for a particular patient: He collects all SYMPTOMS and INFORMATION of the patient, SYNTHESIZES a SIMILIMUM using this information in DIGITAL FORMAT, which is then PLAYED to the patient!. He even prepared these DIGITAL GENUS EPIDEMICUS for BIRD FLU and HIV, using the INFORMATION collected from affected individuals. His BIRD FLU remedy is available for DOWNLOAD from his site by paying a few dollars!. PREVENTIVE for BIRD FLU is advised to be PLAYED in poultry farms! It is available in CDs also, recorded as MP3 files. This DRUG could be WRITTEN into water also!
In many western countries, homeopathy is taught in ‘naturopathy learning centers’, as part of their CAM learning programs. Homeopathy is considered by them not as a ‘medical science’, but as one among their ‘holistic’ or ‘spiritual’ healing practices known as ‘energy medicine’.
HOMEOPATHS coming out of these ‘colleges’ practice not only homeopathy, but a ‘mixture’ or ‘integration’ of spiritual healing, Naturopathy, traditional chinese medicine, accupuncture, pranic healing, massage therapy, ayurveda, chiropractic, chromotherapy, phototherapy, magnetotherapy, gem therapy, astrology, biofield therapy, reiki, hypnotherapy, relaxation, yoga, meditation, herbalism, flower essence, osteopathy, breathing therapy, aromatherapy, reflexology, radionics, dowsing, music therapy, shamanic, and a host of other ALTERNATIVE THERAPIES- most of them pure OCCULT or QUACKERY.
Situations in certain countries like INDIA is entirely different, where homeopathy is considered an independent MEDICAL SYSTEM. In India, homeopathy is taught only in homeopathic colleges controlled by a central homeopathy council constituted on the basis of a parliamentary act. Homeopathy education and practice are under the strict control of state, exactly similar to modern medicine. Syllabus and curriculum for homeopathy courses are designed in a way fitting to a SCIENTIFIC MEDICAL SYSTEM. Homeopaths graduating from these colleges practice as SCIENTIFIC PHYSICIANS- not as HEALERS. They never promote any ALTERNATIVE therapies by ‘mixing’ up with homeopathy practice.
Homeopathic educational and practicing system in INDIA could be used as an ideal model for homeopathy in all countries. Such a re-modelling will help WORLD homeopathy to come out of CAM UMBRELLA, and establish as an independent and SCIENTIFIC medical system.
To be capable of accepting this statement, western homeopaths and PROMOTERS will have to undergo an inevitable process of conscious self-unlearning and re-learning.
