Some medicines that have been withdrawn from the market over the past 50 years including DES
Homeopathy enjoys edge over allopathy in many ways. As it is an acknowledged fact that those using allopathic medicines for a long time contract several other diseases. Homeopathy, however, has no such side-effects.
There are many differences in both the disciplines of medicines. Let’s just focus on one main difference and that is the fact that none of the homeopathic medicines introduced during the last two hundred and fifty years was withdrawn from the market.
The more a homeopathic medicine is used the more useful it becomes. Its finer details are brought out with the passage of time and the homeopathic physicians use it with even greater confidence and precision.
In contrast there is a long list of allopathic medicines withdrawn, discarded or banned after they were initially introduced with very high claims. These all medicines were introduced by the “medical science” after great “medical research”! Well! what sort of science it is that changes its stance after every six months?! You may call it business or you may call it the commercialization of consumer products but of course not science.
A few allopathic medicines discarded, and reasons for their withdrawal during the last 50 years are as follows:
The details regarding thousands of other discarded, banned or withdrawn medicines can be checked on the Internet. The reason behind this frequent withdrawal of medicines is that these are introduced not to serve humanity but to earn more and more. Medicines production and marketing have become a big business worldwide. Pharmaceutical companies fund research in medicines because of their own monetary considerations.
Homeopathic medicines, however, are not given directly to the patients. They are first tested on healthy human volunteers before being given to the patients. They work along with the body’s own defense mechanism. Homeopathy treats the whole person and not just the part as mind and body influence each other and imbalance in one system causes imbalance in the other. Besides, homeopathic medicines are highly diluted substances and without any side-effects.
A system of medicine which is unable to stand the test of time is not worthy of being called medical science.
