Creating Waves of Awareness

This is common allegation which I think every homeopath would have faced in his/her practice. If homeopathy works ,shows results faster than allopathy or shows results in the area where allopathy has no answer ,the allopaths tell the patients they must be giving u steroids.

Patients often come and tell me Doc we take two or three doses of ur medicine and we are allright for acute problems.Sometimes they praise some patient doubt also . U dont dispense steriods??. I tell them I make medicine in frotn of u people and I am not givng medicines in powder form How can I.

Recently I had a case of Multiple Sclerosis ,young man of 25 years of age from Muradabad. He and his wife only knew that he had MS and they requested not to disclose this to his familyas he was the only son. I told him about the disease and I told him I will try to arrest the disease. He was on steriods . I gave him medicines and told him to taper the steriods and see me after a month. Next time he came and said he is much better . His gait is better, his strength of hand also increased and his cheques were not bouncing ,he continued treatment for 4-5 months and he was much better . Suddenly he stopped treatment 4 months back . Yesterday his wife's mausi called me and told me Doctor tell me frankly which steriods u were giving him. I was shocked by her allegation. Then she asked me what for u were treating him. I told them see he was having MS and it was not from now it from past 3-4 years. I told them I dont give steriods to my patients and I can give u the names of the meidcines which I gave him.

Dear Colleague,
In Homoeopathy, practically it is very difficult to give Prescriptions . Because, more than 90% of the dispensed drugs are Placebos. So, we can't give Prescription for them. If the pt is lucky enough to have good health, he will continue Homoeopathy. otherwise leave it to his fate.
Best wishes,
Dr. Karunaiyanantham.

Yes u are right if we start giviing prescreptions this discussion might end. But this will lead to another discussion whether to give prescription to patients or not because patieints misuse it, one given Belladone for sore throat and everytime or any person coming in contact with him will be prescribed Belladone without knowing the repurcussions and when the patient doesnt respond blaming homeopathy.......

Dear Colleague,
Thanks for posting your experience on allegations of Steroids being used/ prescribed by Homoeopaths. I always have this query from our Allopathic Colleagues, when they see that Homoeopathy gives immediate relief to acute diseases like Allergies, Status Asthmatic etc.You know what's my answer to them " IT IS YOUR DOMAIN/ PREROGATIVE" Homoeopathy do not have steroids. Secondly as majority of Homoeopaths do not give the prescription to the patients and they dispense medicines of their own, this leads to the suspicion of being steroids dispensed to patients in acute cases as stated earlier. Once you give prescription to the patient and patient is purchasing the medicines from homoeopathic chemist this type of suspicion dies its own death. Moreover there is no need to ptovide explanation always to our allopathic colleagues as they are culprits of using steroids more frequently than any body else. I have seen the worst cases like Steriod resistance Nephrotic Syndrome, Sarcodosis, Asthma etc where they have done such a damage that patient can not be treated by any method and left with ultimate death caused by these so called most qualified doctors.

Now a days in Allopathy nobody can have good Practice without Steroids. So the Allopaths believe that nobody can give fast relief without steroids. Mentally they could not accept the merits of other Systems. Meanwhile many fraudulent unqualified people are using steroids liberally in the name of Alternate Medicine. So, the 'Steroid doubt' is common among the Allopaths regarding medicines of other Systems. They are the main people who spread such doubts among public.
Here the main problem is, the Scientific base of Homoeopathy has not reached the people as should be. So, while giving Homoeopathic treatment we should educate the patient regarding the unique nature of Homoeopathy and the disease free future of the patient.
As per Dr Shreya Deshpande, it is not only the fate of the patient who leaves such a good treatment, but also all people including the suffering Allopaths.
Best wishes, Dr. Karunaiyanantham.

its tru that some peoples blem us by our results & surrounding around them , so need of education of homoeopathy& how our medicines can act . here communication with patient & with relatives must be positive & we have to explain the facts clearly . its true that false positive repotes also obtained . so we must strong to explain truth against any blem on homoeopathy
best wishes

This is the truth:

The main reason for such allegation is the false positive tests done for steroid detection. They usually use colorimetric method using Tetrazolium blue salts. If steroid is present in the sample, there will be formation of a highly colored Farmazan. This is due to the reducing properties of steroids. But lactose, sucrose and alcohol also show same reaction due to reducing properties. Apart from that, there are some natural steroids present in the plant remedies. All these can give a false positive result. Hence the most reliable tests for steroid detection are UV absorption, T L Chromatography, and Liberman buchard.

Dear Dr. Prasad,
I agree with you entirely.I did not mean to convey the message to ignore. What I was really meaning was that it is important to choose your battles carefully "choose your Rubicon". In the context of your comment, it may be of help to refer to the link below.
Best wishes,
