Integrative Medicine - Homeopathy The Inconvenient Truth

R
raynoronha

Many scientists believe that Homeopathy is just quackery. However, it is used by many Medical Doctors in Europe. So are the scientists correct or are the family physicians, sports doctors and the public who use Homeopathy all misguided. This presentation discusses the controversy and presents solutions to this on-going controversy.

Homeopathy
The Inconvenient Truth
Integrative Medicine
http://www.smartfamilydoctor.com
Part of winning any championship is dealing
with injuries or avoiding them in the first
place.
This study revealed that the German Medical
Staff from the national and top league teams
used Homeopathy to treat aches and pains in
professional athletes.
A 2012 study
showed that the
German national
team places a lot
of trust in natural
healing remedies.
This was presumably an objective study which
was carried out by an academic institute in
Koblenz.
It found that 92 percent of medical doctors who
work for the Bundesliga's first and second-
division sides prescribed homeopathic remedies.
So would these “billion
dollar” organisations
permit the use of
Homeopathy in their
elite athletes if it had
no value.
These organisation
with world’s best
sponsors play for high
stakes!
Scientific investigations have never found
any healing benefits other than a placebo
effect from homeopathic treatments.
Australia's National Health and Medical
Research Council released a draft information
paper in April 2014 which says "there is no
reliable evidence that homeopathy is effective
for treating health conditions.

Integrative Medicine - Homeopathy The Inconvenient Truth

  • 1. Homeopathy The Inconvenient Truth Integrative Medicine http://www.smartfamilydoctor.com
  • 2. Part of winning any championship is dealing with injuries or avoiding them in the first place.
  • 3. This study revealed that the German Medical Staff from the national and top league teams used Homeopathy to treat aches and pains in professional athletes. A 2012 study showed that the German national team places a lot of trust in natural healing remedies.
  • 4. This was presumably an objective study which was carried out by an academic institute in Koblenz. It found that 92 percent of medical doctors who work for the Bundesliga's first and second- division sides prescribed homeopathic remedies.
  • 5. So would these “billion dollar” organisations permit the use of Homeopathy in their elite athletes if it had no value. These organisation with world’s best sponsors play for high stakes!
  • 6. Scientific investigations have never found any healing benefits other than a placebo effect from homeopathic treatments. Australia's National Health and Medical Research Council released a draft information paper in April 2014 which says "there is no reliable evidence that homeopathy is effective for treating health conditions. versus
  • 7. The ANHMR review summarised, “No good-quality, well-designed studies with enough participants for a meaningful result reported either that homeopathy caused greater health improvements than a substance with no effect on the health condition (placebo), or that homeopathy caused health improvements equal to those of another treatment”.
  • 8. When one examines the findings the ANHMRC one wonders if they have rushed to make a conclusion based solely on the available data interpretation rather than clinical observation.
  • 9. Was this research a waste of the Australian Tax payer’s money?
  • 10. Perhaps the money spent on this study could have been better utilised on other research programs. e.g. initialising research studies on the addiction rates of pharmaceutical pain medications or on how to combat the ever-increasing obesity rates.
  • 11. There is no pharma conspiracy as some may think, but careful use of funding should be considered especially in a tough economic climate; the findings of the ANHMRC will have no impact on the consumer and only serve to create the usual temporary media-frenzy!
  • 12. So are the millions of people who buy homeopathic remedies deluded?
  • 13. Of course not! These are not ‘one-off purchases’, so why has there always been a public demand for alternative medicine such as Homeopathy if they only have a placebo effect.
  • 14. Homeopathic treatment works on “quantum healing” and currently science is limited in the measuring subtle energies. However, there are studies that indicate that histamine dilution modulate basophil activation and also check out the many research papers for Traumeel.
  • 15. Are the scientific reviews that have been carried out justified in their conclusion that homeopathy has no effect?
  • 16. In an extreme case the scientific argument can be correlated to saying that there is no scientific evidence that God exist so no one should believe in God and it is a waste of time. Conversely, in 2011, the Swiss government released a report that claimed that "homeopathic treatment is both effective and cost-effective.
  • 17.  There was strong demand from both consumers and physicians for complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) treatments:  “Approximately half of the Swiss population have used CAM treatments and value them.”  “About half of Swiss physicians consider CAM treatments to be effective.”  “85 percent of the Swiss population wants CAM therapies to be a part of their country’s health insurance program.” Findings http://www.smartfamilydoctor.com
  • 18.  This was a more comprehensive report that the ANHMRC, it included:  Randomized double-blind and placebo controlled clinical  “Real world effectiveness”  Safety and cost-effectiveness.  Systematic reviews and meta-analyse  Outcome studies  Epidemiological research.  Quality of design and execution (called “internal validity”) and how appropriate each was for the way that homeopathy is commonly practiced (called “external validity”).
  • 19.  The report cited 29 studies in "Upper Respiratory Tract Infections/Allergic Reactions," of which 24 studies found a positive result in favour of homeopathy.  6 out of 7 controlled studies that compared homeopathic treatment with conventional medical treatment showed that homeopathy to be more effective than conventional medical interventions (the one other trial found homeopathic treatment to be equivalent to conventional medical treatment).” Visit:http://www.huffingtonpost.com/dana-ullman/homeopathic-medicine-_b_1258607.html
  • 20. So do we believe the ANHMRC meta- analysis research data or the more comprehensive Swiss report?
  • 21. Other factors to consider:  There are at least 38% of German MD’s who use homeopathic remedies to treat their patients.  In the departments of obstetrics in hospitals in the state of North Rhine-Westphalia 96 percent of the obstetrical departments offered homeopathic medicines for obstetrical care.  Homopathic treatment is very popular in the UK and other European countries such as Switzerland, Italy and the Netherlands. In the Netherlands 45 percent of physicians consider homeopathic medicines effective  In India there are 500,000 registered homeopaths, 185 homeopathic colleges in the country, and 11,000 homeopathic hospital beds
  • 22. So where does this leave Medical Doctors
  • 23. As a scientist it is implausible that Homeopathy works. But then consider:  Can science measure everything ?  How many times has Science changed theories?  Why do millions of people use homeopathics e.g. 10 million in the UK alone including allopathic doctors and scientist?  Why is it popular amongst MD’s in Europe?  Why are there over 500,000 registered homeopaths in India?  Despite the scientist conclusions that it only has a placebo effect, why is it still in demand?
  • 24. Consider the following:  Highly dilute homeopathic remedies are devoid of side effects  Placebo who benefits patients one day but not the next  Giving a placebo to a patient with a serious condition may seriously endanger the health of that patient  It could be that the homeopathic consultation not the remedy is the element that improves clinical outcomes of patients after seeing a homeopath  Homotoxicology is the bridge between conventional medicine and homeopathy so this may be the answer
  • 25. I have found Homeopathy to be effective in treating common non-serious ailments in babies and children and with no side effects! In adults there have been great results using Homeopathy and even more remarkable results in using Homotoxicology. Homeopathy is also very successful in treating emotional issues. This fact that is often overlooked by mainstream science, perhaps it is because Science is limited in measuring this domain. A homeopath uses a holistic and patient-centred approach for prescribing remedies which makes it effective. In my opinion the effectiveness of therapy depends on the knowledge and experience of the homeopath in treating complex illness!
  • 26. If you are an MD why not run a simple ‘ risk management’ process at the time of your case assessment e.g. the risks for using homeopathics are higher in certain instances e.g. infectious diseases or substituting for vaccines. In these instances you would probably not advocate the use of homeopathics. Perhaps consider an integrated approach e.g. Pharmaceuticals + Homeopathy http://www.smartfamilydoctor.com
  • 27. The German, Swiss and Dutch MD’s may be ahead of the game. This is reflected in the success of their inclusion of alternative therapies alongside conventional healthcare in the treatment of their sporting stars and also in their application of the Integrative health in the care in family medicine. www.smartfamilydoctor.com
  • 28. Having worked alongside German MD’s in an Integrative Medicine centres was one of the best experiences of my professional life where MD’s, Complementary practitioners, pharmacists and scientists had open discussion with the aim of trying to resolve complex medical ailment by formulating an effective integrative approach to healthcare e.g. Yoga, Ayurveda, Homeopathy plus conventional health without losing sight of the safety of the patient which is of paramount importance.
  • 29. THIS IS WHY I HAVE CREATED EDUCATIONAL TOOLS & PRODUCTS TO ASSIST FAMILY PHYSICIANS WHO WANT TO KNOW HOW TO STRATEGICALLY IMPLEMENT COMPLEMENTARY MEDICINES INTO CONVENTIONAL HEALTHCARE www.smartfamilydoctor.com
  • 30. APPLE A DAY RX APP http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JWi4nkZMdCU www.appleadayrx.net/
  • 31. This app has been designed primarily a resource tool to inform medical doctors of the level of scientific evidence for complementary medicines and therapies, including potential interactions with pharmaceutical medicines with the ultimate aim of formulating comprehensive patient-centred management plans.
