The Future of Homeopathy – A Perspective View

   There is an overall impression that homeopathy is used today by millions of people and practiced by hundreds of thousands of practitioners all over the  world … which is true!  Whether the practitioners are capable of using this new force in medicine in an appropriate way is a totally different story.  The homeopathic field of medicine is so open to all kind of interventions, distortions and bad practice that its original form is almost totally masked or lost and its effectiveness reduced to a mere 10% of its capabilities.  This minimal 10% derives mainly from a small group of practitioners that have followed the original teachings of S. Hahnemann and the right lines of applications. The effect of those practitioners in their private practice is near 70-80% of success. These practitioners were recognized as classical homeopaths, but soon a lot of intruders attached to their name this qualification in order to confuse the public and get a portion of the clientele.

   Though Homeopathy’s overall effectiveness is low due to its bad application by most of its practitioners, in the minds of the people it has been established as a form of medicine that is better and more effective than conventional medicine with its side-effects and complications. The main reason for this impression is that it has been proven effective in conditions of chronic diseases that have no solution in conventional medicine.  Many successful cases have been reported primarily by classical homeopaths who knew how to use this new force in medicine in an appropriate way.

   It is therefore an easily predictable fact that what will follow is an expansion of the use of homeopathy. What form this expanding trend will take, is something we have yet to see. What is certain, is that from now on, homeopathy will progress to a new status within the medical arena. The reason is simple – it is a form of medicine that is needed badly by a certain percentage of global  humanity which is already deeply sick with chronic conditions. Sick and suffering people have discovered its potential and nothing can stop a useful medical system which is so much superior to its existent counterpart.

   In 1915, with the death of the famous American homeopath James Tyler Kent, homeopathy declined  suddenly and steeply. Maybe today, 200 years later, the the tide will turn in the opposite direction.

Who is practicing?

   The world situation, looked upon from the side of practitioners is a bizarre one. Realizing the demand from the public, a lot of practitioners who were connected with medicine, even loosely, are trying to apply it either professionally or in some form of self help. On the other hand,  some new methods and ideas as to how it could be made easier and used more simply, have arisen, in order to fill a tremendous gap in education that exists today. In their ignorance practitioners of all types have fallen for these easier ways but have been soon disappointed. They then try another way until they are again disappointed and so on. By the time such practitioners have found out the correct way of applying this science, they have lost a lot of years, a lot of effort and a lot of money.

   Actually the correct studying of this methodology is a rigorous one and requires all the strength and enthusiasm on the part of the student, in order to overcome the difficulties in learning it. Students in the past used to always be in the periphery of medicine but of late most practitioners who approach serious institutions of learning are medical doctors and many of them with a specialty already. But such brains are already tired as they are overloaded with information and the space in their memory capacity is seriously reduced.

   Another issue that MD’s are facing is, that as soon as they learn homeopathy’s rudimentary elements, they rush to practice and soon find themselves inundated with patients.  Two years of learning that signals the completion of the basic education seems all they need in order to start practicing, but actually the real time needed for expertise should have been 5-7 years and this under supervision.  The physician cannot unfold all the tremendous possibilities that exist with this more thorough learning.

   In these efforts of properly educating doctors, I include several medical universities (Russia), Colleges (India, Pakistan, South America), institutions (Europe) and Academies that provide such solid knowledge like that provided by the International Academy of Classical Homeopathy from Greece in its “E-Learning Program in Classical Homeopathy”, which is considered perhaps the best of its kind according to the evaluation of its students. This program is the most complete and the most professional and has prepared very many excellent practitioners.

   The ideal education of medical doctors still remains the major challenge for all Medical Schools, Universities, institutions and Academies. So far it is established beyond any doubt that homeopathy is needed for better health in the world. What remains now is to find a way of educating correctly and thoroughly all prospective practitioners. The problem is that governments will not rush in support of such an idea.

Education of doctors

  If we need a better state of health, society has to take care of the education of the doctors. The system as it stands today forbids such a development. Medical institutions of course are out of the questions. They will never undertake such an initiative as they are usually run financially with the support of the pharmaceutical industry which sponsors all their research. Those who really have an interest in promoting higher education for medical doctors in such a low cost medical system like homeopathy, are the public sectors of the insurance institutions and of course the private insurance companies. The insurance systems are at this moment on the point of collapse due to huge  expenses, so a change will be forced upon them soon.

  In a practical manner this is my proposal:

   One, or even better a few private insurance companies together should organised a congress to which will be invited to present evidence:

  1. the CEO’s of insurance companies
  2. the directors of hospitals, public and private
  3. representatives from the ministries of health from all over Europe, Russia and USA

   The insurance companies are the only institutions that care about the mounting cost of medical coverage and if they do not do something soon, it will be threatened with bankruptcy.  We gather the best of our cases recorded on videos and present to them thousands of impressive cures from all kinds of pathology, from severe gangrene cases before amputation to sever neurodermatitis, to gingivitis, to psoriasis, to asthmatic conditions, to neuromuscular cases, mental diseases, ulcerative colitis etc. etc.

   This is the only way that we could impress them and persuade them to spare perhaps a small portion of the available money for research in order to educate properly young medical doctors, fresh from graduation willing to learn this science. Such an investment would definitely pay tremendously in the long run and perhaps will save the companies enormous amounts of money while at the same time improving the overall health of the population.  It is interesting that at least in Greece, patients are paying from their own pockets for homeopathic treatment. This has been going on since I introduced homeopathy to Greece 50 years ago. It is a proof actually that the patients are willing to pay from their own pocket if they feel that the treatment is effective.

What are the distortions?

   At this moment the distortions about the application of this methodology are so many and so outrageous that one can never go over them one by one and show the fallacies and the confusion. The correct way of applying homeopathy and the difficulties in treating diseases are made more complex today by untargeted chemical drugs and multiple vaccines hammering the immune system of the human organism, leaving it deeply compromised.

   The basic idea in homeopathy is that a remedy has in its potential the ability to treat diseases similar to the ones this substance can produce. Therefore it is a matter of synchronicity, between the energy of the sick person and the energy of the remedy. If the correct remedy is found then the miracle of a reset of the whole defense mechanism is affected. In order to find the symptomatology which is needed to guide you to the indicated remedy, you need to have an in-depth knowledge of the homeo-therapeutics. This is a difficult task especially for the already overloaded minds of the medical doctors of the West that have  learned all information required in contemporary medicine. The inherent difficulty in learning how to handle cases properly with classical homeopathy is the reason for the distortions in the original system of Hahnemann. Practitioners have tried to find short cuts. I will give an example: if a practitioner does not know or is not sure which is the correct remedy that is needed in a specific case, he may mix three, four or even more remedies together hoping that the correct one will be within these groups of remedies. Many times with this system, especially in the population of the East (Indian- Pakistan and South Americans), there is an initial effect that pleases the patient but in continuation, when there is a relapse, there may be a confusion as to how they should continue and therefore, finally, disappointment. But in deep chronic conditions especially of those patients of the West, this system of multiple remedies seldom gives results and therefore other easy ways are sought which have the benefit only of a placebo effect. Since such patients suffering with a chronic condition are almost always affected in their mental/ emotional part, a mild treatment from a sympathetic practitioner may have a better result in their psyche than the aggressive chemical drugs proposed by conventional medicine . But the real effect that homeopathy can have is seldom if ever realized. So homeopaths of this kind, with half-knowledge, live with the delusion they are applying a science which they think they know well, when in reality they do not. Neither do their patients suspect that they could have been cured within a short time if they had come in contact with a knowledgeable homeopath.  All criticism from the Media in the West was and is based on these above facts.
