Creating Waves of Awareness

Do These Products and Advertisements Give Homeopathy A Bad Name and Cause Confusion?

I went to the Sprayology Website

Blending of Industries
These products are attempting to marry 'vitamins' and 'supplements' with homeopathy, which will further the MYTHS about homeopathy. I'm sorry for the way these products are being marketed. The founders of this company are all marketing and cosmetic experts. They are not homeopaths, although they will be posting their advisory board on the website soon.

Benefit of the Doubt
Perhaps, if I give the benefit of the doubt, their intention is good: to bring homeopathy into the public eye much more through the cosmetic and beauty industry. Of course, my concern is that, "homeopathy is medicine" and should not be taken lightly like powder blush or lipstick.

Independent Blogs
Based on a recent blog written by someone who was proposing these products were simply supplements to take instead of vitamins, I thought to myself and commented, " These are supplements, they are not homeopathic. Homeopathy is medicine and should not be taken lightly. A person must see a professional homeopath or physician to take care of medical problems. If you were overdosing on crude vitamin supplements, it was a wise choice to eliminate them from your diet and see the results. Start with a clean slate to determine what responses your body has to lifestyle, environment and nutrition." This concept is stated in the Organon of Medicine to remove all obstacles to cure.

My First Contact with this Product on Hubpages | Excerpt
Sprayology Products Blog Review | Sprayology products have been like a dream come true for me! For some time now I have felt the need to take vitamins and I did try to take them in pill form for a while. To be honest with you, they made me sick! Not that they gave me a disease or anything like that, but taking a half a dozen pills every morning made me feel sick to my stomach. The pills just did not agree with me especially if I took any that contained iron. I thought that I would give up on the vitamin thing until I stumbled upon some ads for a uniquely different line of vitamin products by Sprayology."

Freedom of Speech
People can have the freedom to post their views and opinions about products and these are called testimonials. However, readers should be aware that complete knowledge and facts about the products may be skewed. These types of opinion pieces also drive the market. When I visited the Sprayology website there were many links to NEWS articles and even major media outlets like CBS television had their "Gadget" reviewer mention the Sprayology products.

Homeopathic Use of Sprays
I've always thought the method of dispersion via sprays for homeopathic remedies have been a wonderful invention. I would like to hear some opinions on the value, ease and other qualities for packaging homeopathy this way. I have even purchased some empty spray bottles myself to fill with my remedy to use as a spritzer or to mist the air, skin or apply to the mucosal membranes of the mouth. A number of articles here on HWC have talked about using the mechanical nebulizer for bronchitis and asthma treatment.

Spray Applications
Lets have a discussion about the pros and cons of spray applications. Can the remedy be tainted through contact? Should the bottle be for one single user? Can an energy remedy be contaminated? Has anyone used a spray bottle for a person who cannot take the remedy by mouth or given to an unruly, fearful, uncooperative child? In the new "How Homeopathy Helps Grow Great Gardens" with Kaviraj he will be teaching us how to use the spray method on our plants.

Mixology of Other Types of Ingredients
What about the concept of mixing many ingredients, both homeopathic and non-homeopathic together in one formula? How does that work for you? As we learn and discuss the mode of action of remedies and the concept that we want a 'clean' mouth when taking remedies, does it make any sense to make a formula, like a Chinese Herbal combination, where all ingredients work synergistically?

I Have My Doubts
I have my doubts and my philosophical problems with creating these blends, where in truth, we do not know or have experience of them having been used out in the field. Are the homeopathic inactivated when put in a bottle with other ingredients or are their properties enhanced? I don't have an answer. Waiting for yours.

Do not be sure. Take the benefit of my experience. I organised free medical camps for 14 long years. The result is positive in one and negative in the other way.
Positive: It just advertised that homoeopathy is also a way of treeatment.
Negative: I could find the same patients in the next and the following camps. Public make it a habit to get free medicines.
I still support well organised homoeopathic medical camps where we can give them education about our system. It can become a mass movement if it happens in a good manner.

"The taste of the pudding is in the eating".
So the only advertiser of Homoeopathy is our satisfied clients. Also the suggestions of Dr. Kuram and Dr. Sathish (Organize free Homoeopathic camps in schools and public places - in a periodic festivals of a Temple, etc.) are very important to distribute our tasty "pudding" to People. Then they will become our clients and bring so many to us for homoeopathic treatment.

Some comments indicate that these products are an introduction of newcomers to homeopathy as their first experience with this healing system. We know it is best to have a carefully chosen similar remedy by a professional homeopath who can guide them through the process back to health.

Dear Dr Satish. Thank you for your input in this question.

The route of administration of medicine is not questionable here, 'coz. Hahnemann has already advocated the dermal and olfactory routes in his Organon.

The mode of administration [posology], its repetition and the content of the bottle is the whole concern. If it is a single medicine and its repetition is advocated like the homoeopathic doses - it is all right.

The combinations and patents only bring a bad name to homoeopathy when the product/bottle contains more than one homoeopathic medicine because homoeopathy does not support poly-pharmacy in any form.

So, if the spray contains only one medicine and it is administered to the patient after proper case taking and advised to repeat after certain indications, ONLY then its use is HOMOEOPATHIC. Otherwise it is quackery,

Important references:

Kent Lectures on Philosphy\Lecture VIII: The remedy to be homoeopathic must be similar in quality and similar in action to disease cause.

Kent Lectures on Philosphy\Lecture XIV: Now, when does Lachesis cease to be homoeopathic? When the symptoms that indicated it change, then it is no longer indicated.

Seems that the route of administration-- i.e. nebulizer (spray) should not be of any great consequence. If the proper homeopathic remedy is exposed to mucus membranes and is absorbed- it should have the desired effect.  Its WHAT you put in the spray that makes it "homeopathy."

I am sorry to say that I do not see eye to eye with Dr. Sharad Shangloo. Just promotion of the name homoeopathy is not the question here. There are other novel methods of promotions like the one suggested by Dr. Kurum. And the promotion through advertisements is a fake one. The true advertisement is when a cured person states his/her condition to the other patient in distress and caboose him/her to the homoeopathician. Public is at the first hand very much informed these days. We need to streamline the information in favour of homoeopathy by showing the best results in tedious cases.

Dr. Kurum, I do not think we need to say anything to the patient to spread homoeopathy, rather our dealing and the effectiveness of medicine should speak volumes for the method of treatment. The other novel method is to organize good charitable homoeopathic camps in rural/backward/far-flung areas. And the third most effective method to spread homoeopathy is to visit schools on regular basis and hold free camps and provide treatment on regular basis. I find majority of patient [tiny tots] suffering from the diseases like autism which can only be cured through our method. It is a fact that what we train a child up to age of 11, it becomes a part of child's solid memory.

Dr. Sushil Bahl is right when he says that sprayology can be thought of as one of the ways for homoeopathic drug administration, provided the medicine has been selected as per the homoeopathic laws, otherwise it is useless to think about the same. Organon of Medicine already supports administration to comatose patients through skin [i.e. just applying medicine on the skin] and through olfaction.

Dr. Debby, misuse of sprayology is inevitable unless it is particularly inscribed on the label of the bottle about its dosage and warning, ‘coz. in homoeopathy, there is a specific place for repetition of the dose of the indicated medicine. The medicine taken through oral, olfactory or dermal routes are effe

Please explain what is the "Homeopathic Drug Act"?
Comment by Dr. MAS on November 10, 2010 at 6:07am
We are facing problems in medicine manufacturing in Pakistan and it can only be solved when the HOMEOAPTHIC DRUG ACT will be proved. Till then bear what is available in the market whether homeopathy or allopathy in the name of homeopathy etc.

Dear Debby,
I also agree with your views
