10 things more likely to cure you than Homeopathy

1. Private island
2. Gas mask
3. Real medicine
4. Aliens
5. Mace
6. Jesus (note: only if you’re in a Stephen King novel)
7. Superman
8. Your own immune system

Which just about says it all, really.

As we all know, Homeopathy is nothing more than magic water that's been shaken about a bit and dripped on sugar pills. So I hope I'm not the only one finding it annoying that Homeopaths are trying to claim they have cures and treatments for this new flu.

It is important for those more at risk to seek professional help from their homeopath, GP or health practitioner now. Constitutional treatment is the best way for anyone to strengthen the immune system and Helios would recommend consulting a homoeopath.

Homeopathic Remedies

Considering that the Swine Flu virus produces symptoms similar to the human influenza virus, the following homeopathy medicines may prove useful in cases of swine influenza:

#Gelsemium. [Gels]
#Eupatorium perfoliatum.
#Sabadilla. [Sabad]
#Arsenicum. [Ars]
#Arsenicum iodide.

Homeopathy was successful in treating the flu epidemic of 1918 and can provide answers to questions about the 2009 Swine Flu. Homeopathy can provide quick and inexpensive relief for symptoms of the flu.

My recommended homeopathic formula for this type of flu is as follows.

1- The treatment would start with a single dose of Pyrogenium-200 for all cases and in long cases once every week.

2- Ten drops of Baptisia-6 should be mixed in 3 ounces of plain water. Two teaspoonfuls from this water to be given every hour till four doses are complete, later every 2 hours until the fever is below 100 degree F.

Once the patient starts to show better comprehension and seems mentally alert the frequency of dose may be reduced to every 4 to 6 hours. Antiboitics to be avoided untill absolutly required.

Dr. Jacob Mirman of Homeopathic Medical Clinic says the homeopathic clinic is offering a flu kit that's growing in demand, reported at KSTP TV. "That's a hundred bucks from Washington homeopathic pharmacy. They are right now inundated with requests, so they say it's one or two weeks to get it," he said.

"The virus does not become resistant to homeopathy because we don't treat the virus. We treat the vital force, the immune system, so then it takes care of the virus, whatever it is," explained Mirman.

It's also been speculated that the reason the flu is so bad in Mexico, is that people rely too heavily on alternative treatments:

But one important factor may be the eclectic approach to health care in Mexico, where large numbers of people self-prescribe antibiotics, take only homeopathic medicine, or seek out mysterious vitamin injections. For many, only when all else fails do they go to a doctor, who may or may not be well prepared.

I'm sure there's more if you look. These people are vultures. They know, just as well as the skeptics do, that there is no evidence for their claims - yet they still peddle this crap - mostly to the vulnerable, gullible and desperate, and mostly to the poor (though, don't forget the high percentage of middle-class, moderately wealthy folk who get in on it because they think it's 'spiritual' etc).

I'm getting sick of seeing all of this. Just like the baby in my previous post, people die because they take this snake-oil instead of seeking real medical care.
