Homeopathy enjoys edge over allopathy

Some medicines that have been withdrawn from the market over the past 50 years including DES

See the list of medicines that have been withdrawn from the market over the past 50 years including Diethylstilbestrol DES! Too bad the decision to stop prescribing or even prescribe these medicines in the first place came too late …!

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and that is the fact that none of the homeopathic medicines introduced during the last two hundred and fifty years was withdrawn from the market.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In contrast there is a long list of allopathic medicines withdrawn, discarded or banned after they were initially introduced with very high claims.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:

  • Thalidomide (1950s-1960s): withdrawn because of risk of disturbance to the growth and development of embryo or fetus.
  • Lysergic Acid Diethylamide commonly known as LSD(1950s-1960s) marketed as a psychiatric drug: because it widely caused drug addiction.
  • Diethylstilbestrol (1970s): because of risk of disturbance to the growth and development of embryo or fetus.
  • Phenformin and Buformin (1978): because of risk of lactic acidosis; Ticrynafen (1982): because of risk of liver damage.
  • Zimelidine (1983): because of risk of Guillain-Barré syndrome (an acute neurological disorder followed by progressive muscular dystrophy).
  • Phenacetin (1983) an ingredient in “A.P.C.” tablet: risk of cancer and kidney disease.
  • Methaqualone (1984): because of risk of addiction and overdose.Nomefensine (Merital) (1986): Because of risk of hemolytic anemia.
  • Triazolam (1991): withdrawn in the United Kingdom because of risk of psychiatric adverse drug reactions.
  • Terodiline (Micturin) (1991): side-effects showing prolonged QT interval.
  • Temafloxacin (1992): withdrawn in the United States because of allergic reactions and cases of hemolytic anemia, leading to three patients’ deaths.
  • Flosequinan (1993): withdrawn in the United States because of an increased risk of hospitalization or death.
  • Alpidem (1996): because of serious liver damage.
  • Chlormezanone (1996): because of serious cases of toxic epidermal necrolysis.
  • Temazepam (1999): withdrawn in Sweden and Norway because of diversion, abuse, and a relatively high rate of overdose deaths.

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.
