Homeopathy for Drug and alcohol abuse: Dr. Manish Bhatia

1990: The govt. of India conducted a double-blind study on 60 heroin addicts, of whom 30 were given individualized homeopathic medicines and 30 were given placebo. The number and intensity of the symptoms during withdrawal were significantly less in patients given an individualized homeopathic medicine than those given a placebo. The number of days for the resolution of complaints was also less in the homeopathically treated group. There was a difference in the adherence too - 35% of patients on the placebo left the study prior to its completion due to lack of therapeutic benefit, while only 5% of those taking the homeopathic medicine left the study.[3]

1993: A double blind, placebo-controlled trial [4] applying homeopathy to chemical dependency was done by the Hahnemann College of Homeopathy, Albany, California. The results showed decreased relapse rate of recovering alcoholics and drug addicts undergoing homeopathic treatment.

1994: A study was carried out by Central Council for Research in Homoeopathy (CCRH) at its Clinical Research Unit, Varanasi, India [5]. Out of 261 drug dependent patients referred from a Drug De-addiction centre at Varanasi, 20 cases dropped out whereas 241 were followed up from September 1988 to March 1994. All the cases were in the age group of 12-52 years and all, except one, were male. The medicines were administered usually 8-12 hours after abstinence of drug substance abuse, where withdrawal symptoms became obvious. Prescription was made on the basis of totality of symptoms of the individual case.

Out of 241 cases followed up regularly, 209 cases showed improvement in withdrawal symptoms whereas 32 cases did not improve. Rhus toxicodendron (n=85) was found to be the most effective medicine. Other medicines found effective were Avena sativa (n=43), Nux vomica (n=34), Arsenicum album (n=26), Bryonia alba (n=8) and Chamomilla (n=7).

The outcome of the study shows that homeopathic medicines are efficacious in the management of withdrawal symptoms of drug dependents and can check the menace of the chemical dependency. The results have prompted CCRH to take up this study in collaboration with the Society for Promotion of Youth and Masses (SPYM) from April 2008.

You are showing your abilities to everyone at this forum by being abusive. I only shows you are a frustrated chap. The world deserves, and I too, definitely deserves better. I feel sorry for you.


Yo, Nance old girl! ( I assume you're a girly, 'coz otherwise you'd be a bit of a nancy-boy, not at all macho, and all that ). You don't mind me calling you Nance, do you? After all we ARE having all this important interaction on the interwebs, hey. You can call me Dr. Rwen, if you like.  Smiley

No need to feel sorry for me! I've found the answer. Not your boring old homeopathy, which is so, like twentieth-century, outmoded, passé and suchlike.

You need to get into Fractal Field Theory! Discover the secrets of the Golden Mean! Would you like to experience Heart Coherence? Wotabout Rwenzori's BlissTuner, made right here under licence from Dan Winter himself. Want to join me for a session with the LoveTuner? Come along for some wave multiplication - you yourself said "Waves alone are homeopathic!" - so see what happens with the constructive interference of wave addition and multiplication.

Check out Dan's unified field theory:
Quote
Dan Winter was one of the first scientists to provide evidence that the shape of the universe is a stellated dodecahedron. As a shape capable of producing the perfect fractal, the stellated dodecahedron can cause charges to scale, materialize and implode.

Winter was also one of the first scientists to attribute the cause of gravity to the fractal nature of the universe. According to Winter's research, it is the stellated dodecahedron's perfect charge collapse geometry - based on the Golden Mean - that creates gravity. Only the Golden Ratio allows for constructive interference of wave addition and multiplication.


Get yourself into the 21st century, old girl! Read all about it:

Let us hope that Fractal Field Theory (FFT – not to be confused with ‘Fast Fourier Transform’ in the study of wave phenomena) has within it the capacity to convey to “Dr” Nancy Malik, Physician, the vital importance of (a) understanding and (b) presenting a coherent and substantiated case.  Let us equally hope that FFT (the later kind) has within it the capacity to convey to us, as sceptics, that “Dr” Nancy Malik, Physician, is dive-bombing with homoeopathic concentrations of plausibility.

You gotta love the chutzpah, perhaps the only thing not in homoeopathic dosage around here! Evil

@Ms Malik
You are not maintaining the sanctity of the forum (or at least this thread) by failing to address serious problems raised by members of the forum. Either admit that you can't or provide proper proof of your claims. Your lack of any coherent debate speaks volumes about the validity of homeopathy. For if these serious problems had proper answers, an expert in the field like yourself should be able to provide them. Then we would all be convinced, and you would not be so hesitant to give them.

PS could everyone stop with the AdHom. The sanctity of the forum is at steak. Hmmmmm, steak. Delicious typo.

Nancy - "Rifers"? You do realise that Radionics has been debunked many, many times. Appeals to a "healing modality" even more fringe than homeopathy do not bolster your case. Quite the reverse.

But Malik's an impenetrable crackpot spewing formulaic homeo-garbage. Just read her posts. There's no actual argument, just a kooky potjiekos of overcooked veggies.
