Has anyone tried homeopathic healing? i went to see a practitioner yesterday and was surprised at the results. She's saying I've got lead poisoning, cox sackie virus, and Hepatitis C as well as dog heartworm. But not MS. She gave me several pills and tinctures and supplements to take for a month. She didn't tell me to stop taking the MS meds or the rebif. Anyone who has tried this route, please tell me your opinion. wouldn't the blood work done by the neuro prior to beginning interferon include a liver toxicology? I swear I remember seeing the results of a hepatitis screen in my records somewhere. Thats the only thing that has me upset. redface

Yes..tests by a LEGITIMATE doctor, not a "homeopathic practitioner" would indeed indicate any of those disorders. Homeopathy is a quack "science". There is NO basis in truth to any of the pills or tinctures they offer. The placebo effect is alive and well, though -- and a legitimate issue: you might feel better when you're there, and taking the stuff....because you WANT to feel better, and you convince yourself you're feeling better. But again, there is NO evidence that homeopathy is anything but quack medicine.

Of course this is only my opinion.

OOOooh Madlou,

Be careful.  Homeopathy is not regulated by the FDA and those tinctures and supplements can interact with your other meds and cause real harm.  I agree with Uppitycats, stick to real doctors.  Please be careful and take good care of yourself.

Love and prayers,

The "Real Drs", misdiagnosed me for many years( 8 in all and some who were prominent neuros and researchers) so I don't think they know everything.

If it is harmless, as homeopathy is, and you have confidence in the practioner, why not give it a try?

Accupuncture used to be called "quackery" and now it is considered mainstream.  Many ins co pay for it and if it was unproven, or considered experimental they would not.

I say have an open mind.  Consider the possibility of other treatments to incorporate into your medical care. 

Good Luck!

Thanks KIMC. I'm not giving up my interferon. Just adding something into the mix. Homeopahy has been considered "real" by Europeans for many years. I do massage therapy and chiropractics. The insurance pays for the chiropractor, something that wasn't always the case. I just don't want to leave a stone unturned.

I totally agree, leave no stone unturned.  I've learned that the hard way.
