You know how sometimes when you learn a new word you find that it is suddenly in nearly every sentence you read?  Or how the same song can be everywhere all at once?

Is it me, or are there suddenly a whole lot of articles in the New York Times that suggest that maybe all the things that you have heard people in the field of alternative medicine say for the last, oh, twenty years or so might just make sense?  Especially the part about how so many allopathic treatments are just plain dangerous.

Let’s take the most recent example, this article about hormone replacement therapy and cancer. We’ve all sort of known that hormone replacement therapy in post0menopausal women is linked to breast cancer.  By sort of linked I mean that it is linked in the vague way that lung cancer is linked to cigarette smoking.  Now we are learning that the cancer that is linked to hormone replacement therapy is far more likely to be deadly than breast cancer that is not linked to that specific allopathic treatment.

Am I the only one who finds this outrageous?  Who finds that the trade off between the admitted physical and emotional discomfort associated with the post-menopausal state and DEATH to be totally and completely unacceptable.  Sort of like the trade off we dealt with in the article in the Times a few days ago that suggested that medications for the treatment of diabetes also caused DEATH.

This is not medicine, folks, this is manslaughter.

How many more patients have to die from their treatments in order for sufficient number of Americans to come to their senses and say that they DEMAND a better way, a better form of medicine, a safer form of medicine, a form of medicine that is medicinal and not just toxic?

In his Organon of the Healing Art, Samuel Hahnemann, the Father of Homeopathic Medicine, states that all patients have the right to a cure that is rapid, gentle and permanent.  So far, from what I have been reading in the Times, all that allopathic treatments seem to offer is a permanent solution–a deadly one.

Think about what Hahnemann is saying.  A cure that, at once, is rapid, gentle and permanent.  That does not just manage illness, but actually cures it.  That does more than cover symptoms and deaden pain, but actually cures it.  That works swiftly.  That works gently.  That works permanently.  Now we all know that it’s pretty easy to treat patients in a manner that can give you any two out of the three.  There are plenty of methods of treatment that are rapid and gentle–they make you feel better right away–but they are not permanent.  When the dose wears off in four hours or eight hours, the pain comes back.  You have to take another dose to get back to that rapid, gentle soothing action and, over time, you have to take more and stronger doses to maintain your state of numbness.

There are also plenty of treatments that are rapid and permanent, but not gentle.  Many treatments just approach a problem by cutting it out.  That’s fast and that’s certainly permanent, but it is very seldom gentle.

Or you can work in a way that is gentle and permanent, but it might take years to get cure, leaving rapid pretty much out in the cold.

In thirty years of studying how healing takes place, I have found only one method that works best.  It is not a cure-all or a panacea–nothing is. But it is a system of treatment that actually works with the body in the way it naturally heals itself.  And it helps strengthen the immune system in its action.  That medical modality is homeopathy.

Those women who are helped through the transition into their postmenopausal life through the use of homeopathic remedies not only find that they have a smooth transition, but they also find that they actually survive it.  Further, unlike hormone replacement, they do not have to stay dependent upon treatment for an open-ended period of time.  The goal of all homeopathic treatments is to reestablish balance and then end treatment.

Surely the possibility that I am actually writing something that is true is worth exploration.  Find out for yourself. Read, study, give the remedies a chance. If the alternative to what you may right now think of as nothing less that voodoo (or, worse, hucksterism) is that you surrender your body to an allopathic treatment that greatly increases your chances of early mortality, who is the sucker here?  The person who is open minded enough to give the alternative a try, or the person who goes ahead and opts for the allopathic treatment, having been forewarned of the risks?

Think about it.  Your life or the life of someone you love could be at stake.
