I was listening to a TED talk under the subject title. The page carried the introduction as “Legendary skeptic James Randi takes a fatal dose of homeopathic sleeping pills onstage, kicking off a searing 18-minute indictment of irrational beliefs. He throws out a challenge to the world’s psychics: Prove what you do is real, and I’ll give you a million dollars. (No takers yet.)”
I listened to the talk, you may also listen for yourself, by clicking the above link. He strongly condemned all para normal and supernatural instances those we talk of, and at times, encounter on the streets; described those as be-fooling others and for making cheap money. Up to this I have no objection, but I have serious objection when he trashes Homeopathy as a whole. Whatever may be his reputation, I will say he does not have full knowledge of homeopathy. Although I am not a Homeopathy doctor, I challenge his observation on Homeopathy. Homeopathy cures, I can provide evidence in support from my own experience, but it is true that advance guarantee can not be given that a particular homeo medicine, will cure certain diseases, with certainty as often happens with an allopathic medicine or surgery.
I have a proof that homeopathy is a therapy, and it acts. Some 30 years back, my wife used to suffer from migraine, and no allopathy doctor, could cure her. I spent a lot on medicines and pathological tests. Next, being frustrated, myself a layman on the subject, studied a few books and applied ONOSMODIUM-30, she was cured like a magic in a few minuites. This gave me a deep conviction that –yes, it is therapy, real therapy at that. After this personal experience, should I believe anybody–however famous he may be, when he says homeopathy is a quackery ?? I hope to write him a letter soon protesting his observation. Will you join me?? Thanks for reading.
