Homeopathy to treat HIV/AIDS criticised by British doctors

New Delhi, Sat, 17 Nov 2007 NI Wire

Newstrack India

Nov 17: A proposed Homeopathy’s function in the treatment of HIV/AIDS has become an object of remonstration. The seminar was to be organised by European Society of Homeopaths in United Kingdom on the ‘World AIDS Day’ on December 1.

This system of practice has come under attack from the British doctors also the highly appreciated medical journal ‘Lancet’ has criticised the growing popularity of homeopathy in India.

Homeopathy though originated in Germany but is religiously practiced in India.

Michael Baum, a professor at the University College London criticised Homeopathy and said, “People say homeopathy can't do any harm but when it is being promoted for HIV, and then there is a serious problem”.

Baum had written, “It is an implausible treatment for which over a dozen systematic reviews have failed to produce convincing evidence of effectiveness. Several studies have shown that the clinical effects of homeopathic remedies are placebo effects”.

He said it’s “unethical and patronising” to prioritise placebo effect. The placebo effect is the measurable, observable, or felt improvement in health not attributable to treatment.

Earlier too he has criticised use of homeopathy in everyday illness.

Dr S P Singh, India’s advisor on Homeopathy said that they are getting ready to hit back at the report. He said that a study has shown that homeopathy has greatly helped HIV patients by improving the quality of their life by lowering anxiety and improving nutrition and health.

Even Director General of Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR) Dr N K Ganguly said that a homeopathic medicine was found to be effective against HIV/AIDS during screening at National AIDS Research Institute (NARI), Pune.

“The homeopathy compound screened in vitro at NARI against HIV has been found to effectively kill the virus,” he added.

Union Health Minister Anbumani Ramadoss said, “Homeopathy has very good treatment effect for certain diseases which are not amenable to treatment by conventional medicine. It is effective, safe, affordable and simple to administer. It is also cost effective”.

He said that India has plethora of studies to prove its effect.

Homeopathy is a controversial form of complementary and alternative medicine founded by German physician Samuel Hahnemann. The substances which in large quantities would cause symptoms similar to the disease are administered in highly diluted form. Hahnemann had written that the process of dilution aroused and enhanced "spirit-like medicinal powers held within a drug”.

There is no doubt that homeopathy medicines work wonderfully in everyday illnesses as well as in serious illnesses. The reason for allegations of placebo effect on homeopathy is that there are no studies conducted in conventional way to show its effectiveness clearly. If such methodical studies are conducted, the so called scientific people will have to accept homeopathy's effectiveness. Homeopathy is extremely safe, very effective and economical. More studies of homeopathic treatments in terminal diseases like HIV/AIDS, Cancer etc should be encouraged.

Homeopathy is a science. it works in all and every situation. I know Dr KK Goyal, who have been treating early to end stage of Kidney disease patients very effectively. Dialysis can be stoped just within 2-3 months. He is capable of showing his medicinal results just within minutes. I found he is a very scientific man. He is known for treating Even drug resistant TB.

Homeopathy in Chronic Renal or Kidney failure (CRF)

Renal Failure :: Homeopathy in Chronic Renal or Kidney failure (CRF)
Chronic Renal (Kidney) Failure is a fatal disease where bodily waste products (in the form of urine) collected in the body which leads to multiorgan failure. There are three procedures in modern medicine for such condition -


1) Symptomatic medicines with some specific medicines to control the causative disease such as Diabetes mellitus, hypertension, etc.

2) Dialysis (Haemodialysis or Peritoneal dialysis depending on the doctors decision)

3) Kidney transplantation.

These are not the curative procedure for CRF but instead they keep a person alive by performing the crucial functions of the kidneys. But homeopathy stimulates someone?s immune system to perform normal functions in this way damaged kidneys start functioning normally.

A comparison in between Homeopathic and allopathic treatment in Kidney Failure.

1) In comparison to life long treatment in allopathy
Homeopathic medicines can be stopped in 2 to 5 years depending on the severity and underlying cause of the disease.

2) Damaged Kidneys cannot be repaired in allopathy. Modern medicine try to facilitate the bodily waste products to pass out by the process of dialysis through artificial or by transplanted natural kidney.
Though Homeopathy does not provide any substitute (dialysis or new Kidney) for any organ (Kidney) but it can revive the damaged organ as it has been proved at many times in my treated TB cases where I always found normal tissue in place of fibrocavitory lesions (Completely damaged tissue).

3) The process of dialysis could not be stopped once a patient starts on it. As the time passes this procedure has to done more frequently.
Patient?s kidney starts improving as soon as he starts taking homeopathic treatment. It helps the patient withdrawing from dialysis.

4) There is no curative procedure for CRF in modern medicine. Kidney transplantation and Dialysis does not cure renal failure, but instead keeps a person alive by performing the crucial functions of the kidneys.
But homeopathy stimulates someone?s immune system to perform normal functions, in this way damaged kidneys start functioning normally.

5) There is very high percentage of rejection of new kidney,
if such patient starts taking homeopathic treatment that would minimize the rejection percentage.

6) Patient has to spend Rs.5000 to 20000/- per month exclusively on medicines. Expanses of hospital?s fee and investigations are superfluous.
Homeopathic treatment cost depends on the severity of disease and knowledge and experience of the doctor, even a costliest doctor's treatment remains quite economical than allopathic expenses.

7) In case of kidney transplanted patients kidney?s linked diseases like Diabetes mellitus and Hypertension may become uncontrolled instead of taking full medical care.
But Classical Homeopathic treatment not only repairs the damaged kidneys but side by side it helps in maintaining the blood sugar level and blood pressure to a normal level.

Which type of kidney patients should take Homeopathic treatment?

1. Healthy persons who have strong family history of renal failure should take classical homeopathic treatment to avoid the risk of renal failure.
2. Diabetic patients who are suffering from Hypertension also must take homeopathic treatment.
3. Persons who are having symptoms of early renal failure of unknown etiology.
4. Kidney patients of any stage should start homeopathic treatment earliest possible for avoiding passing into the complete renal damage.
5. Patients who are on dialysis can get rid off the frequent dialysis by taking classical homeopathic treatment.
6. Patients who are waiting for renal transplantation should start homeopathic treatment which can stop the urgent need of kidney donor.

It?s mean to say that nothing is too late for classical homeopathic treatment; every patient should start it as soon as they come to know about benefits of homeopathy.

the western countries only want to comand the market.They even dodnt know fully abt this pathy but they are simply trying to proving themself as superior. one thing more if they have doubt they should contact a reputed doctor and have look over their results and that make it clear.

As per my experience, Homeopathy very good and un believable recovery from cervical and lumbargo spondylitis. Because, no allopathic medicine was worked even 5% as Homeopathic medicine did. As a proof what else you need. Allopathic medicines are impractical for this type of problems.

I think all medicines be it homeopathy or allopathy or so and so forth, there is some placebo effects which can not be avoided...but do not forget that allopathy gives huge side affects too in some cases and pls. do not forget the benefits that homeopathy gives to the Human life.

As an example take congenital diseases where say allopathy does not much think on a particular case on this line and goes for fixed procedures whereas the same ailment can be treated using homeopathic medicines in an easy way and the long lasting result is seen in many a cases.

For Syphilis, congenital syphilis etc. Homeopathy has given great results, hopefully for AIDS/HIV too it will help and I think ultimately some great sort of Homeopathic medicine will come out to save the World...won't it be such a wonderful thing!!!

Please do not confuse evaluation/Surgery with medicines...I think even after surgery is done a patient can be fully treated by homeopathic medicine. I think a proficient homeopath can too get the tests or evaluation of a patient done and based on his studies can prescribe the medicines.

Homeopathy is more effective in certain cases it has already been proved, but symptoms like tooth ache do not get good result out of it.

But for improving vital life of human being and other chronic illness which can be cured in a far better manner compared to other medicines.
