Crownsman, no flame wars needed. I frankly couldn’t give a flying fig if anyone doesn’t believe in it.
I am an evidence based security professional, accustomed to hearing lies and diversions. I don’t believe a minister, deputy minister, the police, the managers, VP,s down to the guard in the lobby. Everyone has an agenda. I don’t and. I offer this for everyone’s consideration.
I was and still am a believer in conventional medicine, however, I was introduced to to homeopathic medicines from inlaws and was sceptical to say the least. I have however seen it work on myself, family and friends. Don’t take my word, but be open and try arnica on a bruise. Surely you have purchased stuff that didn’t work so it’s a small gamble right?
My family was with another and one of their kids slammed their head onto the corner of a table and you could see the egg starting to appear. My wife ( a nurse I would trust with my life) put a little arnica on it. The mother was sceptical and like many thought it was some form of witchcraft. It was hilarious to watch her face as the massive egg never appeared on the child forehead. She immediately asked what it was that was used. Maybe it was witchcraft and we fooled the bruise and the mother!
I used to cut 30 face cord of wood a year, I cut more trees down on my property in a year then are in most city parks have and arnica is a mainstay for all the cracks my leg or arms take.
So what you are saying is aspirin doesn’t work because it was originally from the aspen or willow tree! You should write the medical profession and tell them aspirin doesn’t work because it’s from inner layer of a tree. Sounds pretty homeopathic to me!
What about all the other medications that are ALL Derivatives from plants, trees etc??? I guess that’s a big hoax as well
Before anyone blows off natural medicines, they best look at all the medicines that derive the majority of their composition from. Morphine used by army....comes from what, magic powder from big pharmacy in the sky or opium, which we know is from the poppy plant! Imagine that, a plant goop being used for medicinal purposes! The shear audacity of them to do that and then tell us natural medicines are witchcraft.
So no flame wars needed. Natural Medicines have existed since day two or seven of man being on earth. Pharmaceutical companies use it. I am no conspiracy nut but know enough that where there is money, there are lies, false studies, unstudied evidence etc.
So by all means, take an aspirin for the pain in your leg if you don’t believe a plant will help. Never take penicillin because you know how that was discovered or is made from and when you look at the link, one will see sugar as part of the process. https://www.nlm.nih.gov/exhibition/from ... ative.html
Here’s another one on that treatment that according to you will not work because it’s natural https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Penicillium
Here’s a good list.https://www.thoughtco.com/drugs-and-med ... nts-608413
Ever wonder why the brits overseas loved gin and tonic, ever hear of malaria? Quinine in the tonic. Tonic, A drivative from a tree!!! Guess those stupid savages (dumb locals) didn’t know what worked! They should have waited for big pharma to discover it and market in a pill form!
So follow the money going to gov and the slime ball politicians and you will see big pharma. From nazi era firms to today’s big pharma pill pushers. Many on this board know governments are only moderately good at keeping roads and other iinfrastructures working. If you trust them and those who bribe them ( oops, sorry, contribute to the party) or who either conduct or help pay for the studies, fill your medicine cabinet with aspirin, but I don’t trust them. I trust my eyes, and I have seen a sugar load of things proved wrong/ lies by gov and companies.
Do t take this personal, hell, I wasn’t convinced either. If ever we meet, I will buy you a good drink made from some oat, barley, corn, grape.. derivative
