Oh – what a daft place we live in. We are assured that Homeopathy is useless because there is nothing in it except Woo Woo and sugar.
Well, explain how a Homeopathic dose can give babies all sorts of symptoms including seizures? And now Homeopathic teething products are being removed voluntarily from shop shelves.
If Homeopathy doesn’t work, people should be allowed to use it – after all Woo Woo and sugar are not medically active ingredients are they?
If you go to hospital, here, in the UK, with your little collection of Homeopathic remedies, their use is discouraged – even “kept for you” until you leave – how kind.
I was told once by a psychiatric worker in the emergency ward meeting at the local hospital about someone who was being admitted, to take all their Homeopathic stuff and Flower Essences home that the person had brought with them. I asked “Why?”
“It might interfere with their medication”, he said. “Oh?” said I, “Really? I thought it was useless?” There was a moment of embarrassment in the room, and I loved every second!
We are not big users of Homeopathy Mr Furlong and I, because we are seldom ill. But now and again, I resort to Aconite, Gelsenium and other remedies, and they sure feel as if they help me, to me!
And Rescue Remedy is a real favourite – it’s not strictly Homeopathy, but a Flower Essence. Who can “prove” it works? Well millions of people! Who can “prove” it doesn’t? Well no one!
So, seizures, difficulty breathing, lethargy, excessive sleepiness, muscle weakness, skin flushing, constipation, difficulty urinating, or agitation after using homeopathic teething tablets or gels? My goodness me, it must be strong stuff, surely?
