Creating Waves of Awareness
The casualness with which Allopathic medicine constantly claims to have the right to sit in judgment over Homoeopathy is truly amazing!
It demands, for instance, that Homoeopathic physicians demonstrate “proof” of
the efficacy of Homoeopathy. Let us ask why Homoeopathy should have to prove
anything to allopathy? Is it so that it may be recognized as one of the natural
sciences? It is a fact that methods used to this effect can “recognize” only
What gives Allopathy the right to establish itself as the measure of all there is in medicine? Is it not true that allopathy`s basic
concept of man as a physico-chemical body is far from being the only
unquestionably possible approach to healing human beings? On the contrary; does
this concept and the resultant problems, such as the neglect of the human
element through technological intrusions, the iatrogenic damages, etc., not put
the very questioner in question?
Would this be the reason why Homoeopaths need to beg Allopaths for recognition? By using their own respective foundations as a gauge, two
sciences so fundamentally different in their basic premises and their
methodology can quite obviously neither recognize nor condemn each other without
overstepping their borders in a very unscientific manner. In this respect, both
sciences stand rather as equals and not as one being subordinate to the other.
This finally needs to be stated unequivocally!
In a free democratic society, it must be possible for naturally evolved sciences such as Homoeopathy, Allopathy and, after all, Philology,
Physics and Theology to coexist as unrestricted entities and with all their
various conditions and methodologies.
