The Mysteries of Homeopathy: Resolved

Let’s face it, the basic theory of homeopathy is bunk. ‘Like cures like‘. Not only is it simplistic nonsense, demonstrably false. It’s not even true to the meaning of ‘cure’. Homeopathy claims that substances which cause similar symptoms, cure the symptoms.  But we don’t ‘cure’ symptoms.

We cure illnesses. Symptoms rise and fall, wax and wane, as long as the illness is active – and fade away when it is cured. When we attempt to cure ‘symptoms’, the inevitable result is that the illness will appear to go into remission, and later reappear.

Homeopathic theory has no theory of cure, no clear medical or scientific definition of cure or cured, rendering the homeopathic mantra is ‘like cures like’ to a meaningless (but nice sounding) phrase.

So.  If the basic theory of homeopathic makes no sense, how does homeopathy persist?  How does it continue to exist, even to thrive in the face of modern medicine? Brace yourself for the reality. Continue reading

A Medical Definition of Cure

If you’ve been reading my blog, you know I’ve discovered there is no scientific, medical definition of cure. Well, I’ve finally resolved that issue, after much research and many sleepless nights, I’ve created what I believe is a useful, complete definition medical of cure, that can be applied to any illness.

Creating A Medical Definition of Cure

Before we define ‘cure’, we need to define what we are curing. Are there diseases that cannot be cured? How can we know? Are there diseases that can be cured? How can we know? Continue reading

My Toothpaste Rant

Today is senior’s day at the local drug store – time to stock up on supplies. But not toothpaste evidently. I prefer Tom’s, but I sometimes buy Sensodyne Original. I used to buy it there. Not that I’m partial to Sensodyne, just that it is one of, possibly the only toothpaste commonly available (outside of health food stores) that does not contain fluoride. But, the clerk said “If it’s not on the shelf, we don’t sell it.”

My local drug store, like most big chains, has over 50 different flavours of toothpaste. I say ‘flavours’, because there is only one basic ‘formula’, in four or five different brands. Most of the 50 different toothpaste Continue reading

Healthicine: Illness > Injury > Disability and Cures

In medicine, everything is a ‘medical condition’ and sometimes, even more than ‘everything’ is a disease.  Medical conditions and diseases are defined (or not) by medical authorities and by diagnosis.

In healthicine, need to distinguish between illness, injury, and disability.

When Doctors hate Doctors, we all lose Health

Medicine is broken. Fractured. We need medicine based on love, on caring, on helping each other.  Instead, much of modern medicine is based not just on competition, but on hatred. Of course it’s not everyone, and for the most part, I don’t believe it’s personal. Few, doctors, hate other types of doctors.  It’s the system. The so called ‘conventional medicine’ system. It’s a paradigm that hates other paradigms. Continue reading
