Homeopathy Reduces Painkiller Sales by 50%
Painkiller is one of the most important and commonly used medicines in the world. Yet, there is still a significant increase in deaths as a result of painkillers. It may either be bad or good news to a lot of us but a review shows that most people have already found an alternative for painkillers.
A large study conducted in France in 2012 showed that patients with chronic musculoskeletal disorders had a 50% reduced usage of conventional pain medication by being under the care of a physician who specializes in prescribing homeopathic medicines.
According to the review, despite the fact that the homeopathic patients were considered ill for a longer period of time, this study showed that the patients with chronic musculoskeletal pain had a 50% reduced use of conventional pain medication, while patients with acute musculoskeletal pain had a 38% reduced use. In addition to this significant reduction in the use of painkillers, the patients who received homeopathic treatment showed a similar clinical progression of their musculoskeletal disease as assessed by standardized functional scales.
Fortunately for homeopathic patients, this study is continuously being developed in Europe where even this health practice is embraced even by the royal family. As conventional pain relieving medicines are associated with minor and serious side effects, the homeopathic alternative is welcome news to many sufferers. It also leads to lower treatment costs.
In the United States, however, these claims lay moot to medical practitioners who consider homeopathy a fraud conducted by quack doctors. With the difference in perception, homeopathic spurt and assistance are more often doubted. The Peterson Group, a non-profit organization and one of the leading sources of information regarding alternative, complementary and integrative medicines, states that with the increasing number of claims which showed homeopathy as mere placebo, the public is reluctant in adapting to the practice. Health warnings of Food and Drug Administration (FDA) added to the consumer’s hesitation.
Asia, on the other hand, has accepted homeopathy and is applying it interchangeably with conventional medicine. The result of the study did not come as a surprise for most of the sellers of homeopathic treatments in the streets of Jakarta, Indonesia and Bangkok, Thailand. Some even wonder the need to rely to painkillers when all the resources to ease the pain are available in homeopathic clinics.
In a more detailed statistics, reports show that chronic pain reduced their need for painkillers by 50% while those in acute pain reduced their use by 38% with the use of homeopathy.
The Peterson Group Responds to Complaints
Jakarta, Indonesia - For three years, The Peterson Group has provided information on the real nature of alternative, complementary and integrative medicines. From delving into the different CAM practices to featuring acupuncture, reflexology, Feng Shui, Chiropractic and other oriental treatments to cure different kinds of ailments and diseases, TPG has been reliable source of up-to-date and latest news on CAM. Among the most featured is homeopathy, a branch of medical treatment which is founded by a German physicist, Samuel Hahnemann, 200 years ago to cure the root cause of the health issue.
This year, homeopathy has been facing different complaints. Since Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has reviewed the regulations against homeopathic treatment last April 20-21, 2015, debates and arguments have been incited circulating around the possibility of implementing strict rules for approval of any homeopathic medical treatment. Allopathic practitioners challenged homeopathic experts to undergo testing and approval to prove that they are not operating fraudulently or that their treatment is mere placebo.
The complaints have escalated and were soon targeting different homeopathic agencies. Even the Peterson Group who claims neutrality in this issue is bombarded with different grievances and criticisms.
With hundreds of complaints flooding TPG’s email every week, Paul Kirkland decides it is time to address the overflowing concerns. In a reply email sent to those who complained, TPG said,
