Homeopathy and Premature Ejaculation ________________________________________

What if I told you today that every disease, mental and physical disorder and medical condition known to man has its basis in a very specific strand of hair of the hundred of thousands of strands on your head? That all we needed to cure the disease, disorder or condition, we simply have to find that specific strand and pluck it out... You'd think I'm nuts, right? Or if you're a really scientifically tolerant individual, you'd probably give me the benefit of doubt and extend me the chance to prove my theory before rejecting it out of hand. Well, perpetuity is how long you'd have to wait for my proof let alone a single piece of evidence in support of my claims really! And you know why? Simple: because they are false to begin with! When it comes to homeopathic approach to treating diseases, that's exactly what the scientist, German physician Samuel Hahnemann, who made homeopathy famous did: he conjured up a bunch of theories out of thin air, convinced himself they were true, wrote a polemic for them based on specious arguments, and somehow managed to convince a small portion of the world that his claims were true without a single piece of scientific evidence to support it! Homeopathy is really a philosophy that interprets diseases and sickness as being caused by disturbances in a hypothetical vital force or life force. It sees these disturbances as showing themselves up as unique symptoms taking the face of a disease. Granted, the idea of life as having or being energy of some sort isnt a new one, nor is it outlandish. But this is not where Hahnemann gets bizarre In an experiment conducted in the 1790s with a bark of some tree used as a traditional medicine for malaria, Hahnemann observed that the effects he experienced from ingesting the bark were similar to the symptoms of malaria. From this single observation, the physician makes a daring leap of imagination: he postulates that cures work through similarity, and that a treatment of a disease must be able to

produce symptoms in a healthy individual similar to those of the disease being treated in the sick person. Via further experiments with other substances, Hahnemann finally came up with the law of similars, otherwise known as "let like be cured by like" as a fundamental healing principle of homeopathy. He believed that by using drugs to induce symptoms, the artificial symptoms would stimulate the vital force, causing it to neutralise and expel the original disease and that this artificial disturbance would naturally subside when the dosing stopped. Homeopathy is, therefore, based on the belief that a substance which in large doses will produce symptoms of a specific disease will, in extremely small and diluted doses, cure it. And this is what homeopathy has come to be: a form of alternative medicine in which practitioners treat patients using highly diluted preparations that are believed to cause healthy people to show symptoms that are similar to those displayed by the patient. All without exception of the 48 or so homeopathic medications and preparations on the market that promise to cure premature ejaculation work under these same unfounded principles! Hahnemann's law of similars (and the resulting homeopathy approach to treatment of diseases) is really nothing more than unproven claims made by a lone scientist; it is not a true law of nature. With its outlandishly wacky ideas such as water having a memory, its use of remedies that lack active ingredients (the sort of ingredients that are actively involved in fighting a disease), and the general lack of convincing scientific evidence to support its efficacy, have all contributed to homeopathy being described as a pseudoscience, quackery, and a "cruel deception" by its critics. In 2010, an inquiry into the evidence-base for homeopathy conducted by the United Kingdom's House of Commons Science and Technology Committee concluded that homeopathy is no more effective than a placebo is

Hahnemann proposed homeopathy in reaction to the state of traditional Western medicine at that time, which was often brutal and more harmful than helpful (case in point: Electric Shock Therapy, for example). We have come a long way since the time of Hahnemann, making tremendous breakthrough in traditional medicine though. And while Im sympathetic to the cause of alternative medicine, and certainly a proponent of it myself, we really ought to stop taking our cues from quackery!
