When I was a boy, the type of healthcare sought & utilised was the choice of my family, and my family alone. Fast forward 30 years though and it seems that 'choice' isn't always as accessible to everyone.
For Episode 14 I simply tell the story of Homoeopathy as I know it to be.
'Plausible' as my guest would describe it, and a deliberate healing system which addresses not just the whole person, just the whole illness as it presents. Case by case. Can you even imagine being treated completely independently by your local doctor, rather than separate from your condition? After all, there was a general imbalance which led you to the subsequent state of dysfunction that you now view as disease or pathology. How can we actually be separate from our disease?
DRUGS DON'T CURE, THEY MITIGATE THE SYMPTOMS.
IF WE HAVE A HEADACHE, IS IT BECAUSE WE 'LACK' PARACETAMOL? NO, IT'S BECAUSE THERE ARE THINGS HAPPENING IN THE BODY TO CAUSE THE HEADACHE
George Dimitriadis is a professional amongst professionals. Not only does he accept the position that Homoeopathy is in an a modality, but he mocks the actions and philosophies of many that practice it. With over 30 years clinical experience, George follows and practices the original teachings and observations of Samuel Hahnemann; the founding father of Homoepathy, and keen researcher of medical sciences. These are his stories as they once occurred and are now either forgotten or buried.
I truly fear that we have moved away from medicines that heal, further and further towards isolated drugs for symptomatic control. After all, cures are forever & forever is a very long time.
