Homeopathy: A grey area of legal regulation

Although its principles were used in ancient and patent medicine for hundreds of years, the practice of homeopathy has a somewhat tenuous and dubious legal status in the modern age. Homeopathic philosophy of 'like cures like' uses substances that are supposed to cause the patient's disease to cure the patient's disease. The practice does not use empirical, evidence-based scientific studies to support its claims. Of course, some of its advocates would suggest that homeopathy's foundational principle is not so different than using a killed virus to vaccinate a patient against the flu. However, according to the American Medical Association (AMA): "There is little evidence to confirm the safety…. [read more]


Homeopathy Is a Holistic Structure of Treatment Thesis

… Homeopathy is a holistic structure of treatment that began in the late eighteenth century. The name homeopathy comes from two Greek words that mean like disease. The concept is based on the idea that substances that produce symptoms of sickness in healthy people will have a curative effect when given in very dilute quantities to sick people who exhibit those same symptoms. Homeopathic remedies are thought to stimulate the body's own healing processes (Homeopathy, 2009).

It is necessary for a person who practices homeopathy to fully understand the nature of the causes of acute diseases as well as the underlying fundamental causes of long lasting diseases, which are thought to be due to the chronic miasms. Hippocrates was the first doctor to use the term…. [read more]

Product Pricing Component the Organization Term Paper

… In fact, the price is relatively inelastic because the consumer will simply go to a health food store where a competitor's precisely similar product is sold for less, or will even order online, especially with overnight service available.

The marketing issues surrounding homeopathic remedies are not so much intrinsic to that industry itself as to the medical establishment's impact on any non-AMA methods of health maintenance in the U.S. A Web site called Quackwatch carries an article by Stephen Barrett, M.D., in which he takes issue with Hahnemann's original concept, writing: "Hahnemann declared that diseases represent a disturbance in the body's ability to heal itself and that only a small stimulus is needed to begin the healing process." Barrett continues to deride the remedies because…. [read more]

Alternative Medicines in Australia Essay

… 155). She writes that CAM embraces a "…holistic view of the individual, and a belief in the interconnectedness of mind, body, and spirit"; indeed, CAM gives great amounts of attention to the psychological and emotional aspects of the human body and places emphasis on "individualizing the treatment" rather than just prescribing drugs as solutions.

An example given by Twohig is that every patient with asthma receives "a different treatment" because one person's bout with asthma may well be from a cause totally different from another asthma sufferer (155). Every approach using CAM encourages the bonding between the patient and the individual consulting with alternative medicines; this leads to the empowerment of the individual, and does indeed relieve the practitioner of "…the onerous sense of responsibility….

Cam Therapeutic Modalities Term Paper

… Alternative medicine is any medicine that is contrary to evidence-based medicine usually initiating from a historical or cultural, rather than evidence-based or scientific, background. Examples include Reiki, yoga, meditation, naturopathy, chiropractice, Ayurveda, acupuncture, biofeedback, hypnosis, homeopathy, nutritional-based practices and many other healing methods, some more controversial than others. Complementary medicine (CAM) refers to the integration of one or more approaches of alternative therapy with conventional medicine. Integrative medicine (IM), the goal being to treat mind, body, and person concurrently, focuses on treating the person not the disease and uses alternative medicine to do so. It is synonymous to CAM, but, perhaps, exceeds that by referring to the healthcare system as a whole and ensures that the approaches used are safe and effective.

Does Gluten Effect Children With Autism? Research Proposal

FACT or FAD?

Effect of Gluten and Casein-Free Diet on Autism

Statistics say that 3-6 out of 1,000 Americans or 1 in every 110 Americans will develop autism, which is more than 90% heritable. There are pharmacological therapies for ASD but up to 27% of parents are drawn to the promise and observed effects of the gluten-free, casein-free diet in reducing ASD symptoms in their children. Naturopathy doctors advocate its use as one of the complementary and alternative medicines or CAM. Autistic persons are gluten and casein-sensitive. These substances produce morphine-line effects, which translate into the symptoms of autism. The rising popularity of the diet motivated an increase in research. Recent studies say there is limited scientific evidence on its…. [read more]

The Use of Natural Healing Methodology in Pain Management: A Realistic and Acceptable Alternative to the Use of Traditional Pain Medications in Today's Society

The problem to be considered in this study concerns identifying efficacious natural healing methodologies that can be used to manage pain. Virtually everyone suffers from various amounts of pain during their lives, but many practitioners and consumer advocates suggest that mainstream clinicians typically fail to address the levels of pain experienced by their patients, and much pain remains under-treated, undiagnosed or simply ignored by these conventional healthcare practitioners. Therefore, identifying alternative, and natural, approaches to pain management represents a valuable addition to the repertoire of techniques currently available to pain sufferers. Of…. [read more]

Jenny is a thirty-two-year-old Caucasian female who complains of various manifestations of acne vulgaris, including persistent blackheads on her nose, and painful, red cystic boils on her forehead, cheeks, nose, and chin. Occasionally Jenny's acne becomes itchy and she admitted to picking and popping her pimples. A few of her acne cysts have left scars on her cheeks.

Jenny is a vegetarian, is not overweight, and has experimented with a variety of different dietary changes to rule out any food allergies. However, we determined that cutting down on baked goods, sugar, and dairy products would be helpful for her recovery. Jenny has also experimented with a wide range of topical products and claims that none worked. Thus, after also determining that Jenny's acne…. [read more]


Music and 1960s Pirate Radio Caroline Research Paper

… It was more about a movement than it was about piracy. It was about helping independent artists to take ownership of their content and to use the airwaves to get their content out to people, too, instead of being railroaded by the major studies and broadcasting companies. The concept was so successful that Radio Caroline would go on to merge with Mi Amigo. But as with any new, great innovative idea, it would soon be tested by fire by the legislators in Parliament working for the corporations in London. The Marine, &c., Broadcasting (Offences) Act 1967 banned advertising on offshore radio stations like Radio Caroline. The justification for the Act was that pirate radio could interfere with the radio frequencies of emergency shipping channels and…. [read more]

Black Cohosh Efficacy for Reducing Research Paper

… This finding agrees with what I have observed in my practice. As Kupferer and colleagues suggest, more research needs to be done to ensure that these alternative treatment approaches are at least safe, and if found to be effective are available to everyone regardless of income. The perceived efficacy of antidepressants, especially selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs), in reducing symptoms is encouraging because these drugs have been tested for safety and efficacy in clinical trials. By comparison, black cohosh appears to be safe but its efficacy remains unproven.

Conclusions

The use of black cohosh for treating menopausal symptoms predates modern medicine, but contemporary scientists have been weighing in with their own findings. From an evidence-based perspective, black cohosh extracts appear to be safe for ingestion.…. [read more]


Bach Flower Dr. Edward Essay

… This course, however, has shown that complementary medicine offers more than a spurious placebo effect. Case studies and qualitative research highlight the ways the Bach flower remedies can be a genuinely effective adjunct to allopathic medicine (Barraclough, 2007). It would be better if empirical research revealed a causal or at least correlational effect from using Bach flower remedies; but even without the support of the scientific community, healers can avail themselves of the flowers. One of the strongest arguments supporting the use of Bach flower remedies in complementary medical practice is that of the mind-body connection. Edward Bach himself understood that "mental states could have a powerful influence on physical ones," (p. 118). Dr. Bach believed that emotional and mental distress can at the very…. [read more]

They also searched numerous relevant data bases, as well as investigating off-line trail reports and reviews. The terms that they used included: acupuncture, electro acupuncture, TENS, induction of labor. They may have included these particular terms since basic strategies of pain control include nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs and aspirin (that block pain through intervention at the periphery), transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS), as well as spinal-cord stimulation (that inhibit pain at the spinal cord and brain) (Melzack & Wall, 1982), and the researchers wished to assess whether, and to what extent, acupuncture compared to these interventions in relieving pain.

Alternative Medicine the Role Essay

… Therefore, there is no profit motive that can be tapped into to provide an incentive for research and development. For example, soy is a common food ingredient and no drug company can make a profit from soy products. Furthermore, if a drug company actually did try to market a soy treatment then they could actually lessen the sales from their existing or developing chemically-based treatments.

For over ten thousand years, over the course of recorded history, natural and alternative therapies have been used to treat peoples' conditions.

HEALING, COMFORTING HANDS?

Therapeutic touch or TT is an unconventional and alternative treatment of disease and accompanying pain and discomfort popularized in 1972 by a psychic healer and her nurse assistant. It involves the manipulation of the patient's energy field by the practitioner. It is also practiced as therapeutic massage. Although rejected by traditional mainstream medicine as having unclear and inconclusive outcomes, this form of therapy has demonstrated to be useful and effective in the control of pain and discomfort, especially among dying patients in hospices, terminally ill cancer patients, and children.
