Fighting the good fight with scientific journals and researched logic is morally sound, but I think your efforts here might be for naught.
Those who support remedies will always have a retort. Those who support conventional medical research will always fear for the implications of ignoring such clear data.
For the record:
Those members of the DX’d community forum who visit this family forum occasionally found this thread to be shocking and unsettling. Likely because they don’t assume the subject of conversation here is often far more subdued by their symptoms than the majority of those who have joined the DX’d community forum.
Still, it is a fundamentally controversial subject.
Best to let those who advocate have their own say and not risk inciting argument in the interest of scientific debate.
To those who advocate homeopathic remedies:
“Energy” is totally the wrong term. Energy, scientifically, is a property of matter measured in units like newtons, amperes, etc… It is a description of motion, not a dietary or medicinal property of a drug.
These remedies generally do contain trace amounts of the substance which they derive “active ingredients” from. Most homeopathic substances are an extremely diluted dosage of some base compound to the point that they contain “trace amounts” (or amounts which are shown to have no observable impact on a healthy person’s physiology).
In the same way that your breakfast cereal contains “trace amounts” of nuts from being processed at a facility which also processes nuts, it has no effect on an otherwise healthy person… Unless they happen to be extremely alergic to nuts.
Is it possible that these substances might have some kind of effect on a DX’d individual?
Is that effect researched, documented and proven in the same way prescription drugs are?
Let’s not generate misinformation, or incite hostility through debate about the topic. Like religion and politics, home remedies are a subject of some very fundamental controversy.
