Homeopath Takes A Swipe At Herbalists

Homeopath Takes A Swipe At Herbalists

“Why Herbs Can’t Cure” is the title of a December 2008 blog post by an unidentified blogger claiming to also be a homeopath. What makes his (or her) piece so startling is its assertion that herbs can’t cure anything.

What’s not so startling is the closing line of the first paragraph—the one that explains that to truly understand healing you’ll need to come and “do” their for-cost homeopathy course.

We here at the HomeopathicDatabase.com understand the idea that disease is caused by an “imbalance” in the body’s energy force. (We don’t agree with it but we “get” it.) What we don’t understand is the our-way-or-the-highway attitude so many homeopaths seem to be adopting. We also don’t understand folks like this who can turn a completely blind eye to the role of germs.

So we ask you … is there room in your medical catalog for both traditional herbalism AND homeopathy? Or do you agree with these bloggers that herbs—in their words—“only suppress” symptoms without actually addressing the actual “di-ease”?
