Homeopathy as a Part of a Comprehensive Treatment Plan

I have been using homeopathic remedies for over 25 years, and I have often found them to be extremely helpful.

I part company from many of my friends who are classical homeopaths who insist that using any form of conventional medicine "suppresses" illnesses, rather than curing them, and so should all be avoided like the plague.

As we started rolling out the new integrated model of healthcare, which integrated conventional medicine, lifestyle changes and homoeopathy, many people objected violently on the grounds that ANY use of other, non-homeopathic treatments would prevent the homeopathic remedies from working.

This has come up recently with several common problems: using homeopathic "vaccinations" in place of the real thing; using homeopathic remedies for influenza, to the exclusion of conventional treatments. And now we hear of people being advised to use homeopathy for malaria prohylaxis. This worries me: I have seen people die of malaria, and it isn’t pretty. Homeopathy may be a useful adjunctive treatment and it may also help with any side effects of conventional treatment.

Please don’t play Russian Roulette with your health.

I thought that it would be a good idea to reproduce the following brief article:

Alternative malaria treatment may not work from
British health authorities are urging tourists not to rely on alternative treatment such as homeopathy to fight malaria.
