It Takes a Thief to Catch a Thief
Re: “Homeopathy is an alternative medical practice. No scientific studies support its use.”
It’s an Old Doctor’s Tale — an Old Allopathic Doctor’s Tale.
It’s as old as the hills and long overdue to be put out to pasture.
Here’s a universal example of homeopathy in the bedroom …
You wake up with a cramp in your leg.
Do you gently massage it or do you stand up and put MORE pressure on your cramped leg?
Gently massaging your leg is allopathy.
Putting more pressure on your leg is homeopathy.
Reducing pressure takes minutes, while increasing pressure delivers relief in a single second.
According to Adano Ley (Swami Nitty-Gritty) …
“Homeopathy is a like balanced by a like. Allopathy is an opposite balanced by an opposite.
“Homeopathy is a thief catching a thief. Allopathy is a policeman catching a thief.”
Samuel Hahnemann (Organon of Medicine, 1810) wrote …
“The champions of this clumsy [allopathic] doctrine of morbific matters ought to be ashamed that they have so inconsiderately overlooked and failed to appreciate the spiritual nature of life, and the spiritual dynamic power of the exciting causes of diseases, and that they have thereby degraded themselves into mere scavenger-doctors, who, in their efforts to expel from the diseased body morbific matters that never existed, in place of curing, destroy life.
“Are, then, the foul, often disgusting excretions which occur in diseases the actual matter that produces and keeps them up? Are they not rather always excretory products of the disease itself, that is, of the life which is only dynamically deranged and disordered?
“With such false and materialistic views concerning the origin and essential nature of diseases, it was certainly not to be wondered at that in all ages the main endeavor of the most obscure, as well as the most distinguished practitioners, and even of the inventors of the sublimest medical systems, was always only to separate and expel an imaginary morbific matter, and the indication most frequently laid down was to break up and put in motion this morbific matter, to effect its expulsion by salivation, expectoration [spitting], diaphoresis [sweating] and diuresis [peeing]; to purify the blood from (acridities and impurities) morbific matters, which never existed, by means of the intelligence of sundry obedient decoctions of root and plants; to draw off mechanically the imaginary matter of disease by setons [absorbent materials to promote drainage], by issues, by portions of the skin kept open and discharging by means of perpetual blisters or mezereum [spurge laurel] bark, but chiefly to expel and purge away the materia peccans, or the injurious matters as they were termed, through the intestines, by means of laxative and purgative medicines, which, in order to give them a more profound meaning and a more prepossessing appearance, were fondly denominated dissolvents and mild aperients [laxative drugs] — all so many arrangements for the expulsion of inimical morbific matters, which never could be, and never were instrumental in the production and maintenance of the diseases of the human organism, animated as it is by a spiritual principle — of diseases which never were anything else than spiritual dynamic derangements of the life altered in its sensations and functions.”
