Facilitating synergy between science and medicine
Evidence of homeopathy is undeniably positive and consistent. © Nancy Malik
Real awareness is number one support to medicine. You can't fool your body. Synthetic chemicals are artificial. Get natural whether food or medicine.
Medicine is termed as complementary when used in addition to homeopathy. An alternative to evidence-based homeopathy is conventional medicine.
Medicine like engineering is applied science. Homeopathy is the youngest of all medical faculties and it is growing. It is modern not only by its virtue of being young but more importantly by the revolutionary medical philosophy that supports this science.
The "Voice of Good Science" is an independent movement dedicated to improving human health through initiating public health policy.

Adrenal glands are stress supervisors. They release anti-stress hormone Cortisol which suppresses the release of the body’s “feel good” hormone Serotonin, amplifying the anxiety and also augmenting depression, as well as Melatonin, the hormone related to sleep. Adrenal glands are responsible for the “fright, fight & flight” response of our bodies. It is these glands which feel the maximum punch of nervous tension. Adrenal fatigue is a collection of symptoms such as body ache, fatigue (not relieved by sleep), nervousness, sleeplessness and digestive problems. Nux vomica (homeopathic medicine) restores this miserably imbalanced state of affairs.

'World Health Organisation' celebrates 7th April every year as 'World Health Day' to raise awareness on health, disease and cure. Health is not just merely an absence of disease but a dynamic entity where a state of equilibrium keeps the constitution of an individual whole in harmony. Constitution means a person’s state of health, including their temperament and any inherited and acquired characteristics. Genetic code genome is responsible for what's going to constitute the make-up of a resulting individual. A disease is dynamic disposition in harmony of constitution due to either non-maintenance of equilibrium or physio-chemical alteration of tissues. The Cure is the rapid, gentle and permanent restoration of health, or removal and annihilation of the disease in its whole extent, in the shortest, most reliable, and most harmless way, based on easily comprehensible principles.

Antibiotic Resistance is a global crisis – a slow-motion tsunami. Antibiotic resistance is as dangerous as terrorism. World’s 1st Antibiotic Awareness Week: 16-22 Nov 2015. WHO names 12 bacteria that pose the greatest threat to human health. Use, Overuse and misuse of antibiotics. Use antibiotics wisely because it kills both good (microbial flora) and bad bacteria. The most common bad effect of antibiotic is diarrhea. Taking antibiotics after the infection has cleared up increases the risk of bacteria becoming drug-resistant. Use homeopathy in primary health care and save antibiotics for bigger battles.

The word “pharmakon” meant both the disease and its cure to the ancient Greeks. The word is paradoxical, translated as ‘drug’ and meaning both ‘remedy’ and ‘poison’. This is still the same today – we refer to both effective medicines and to toxic substances as ‘drugs’
How ‘super-avogadro dilutions’ in homeopathy stimulate the biological activity (immunological and inflammatory reactivity) and pathways (supra-cellular and sub-cellular), and restore the homeostatic mechanism?
Upto the end of year 2010, there have been 53 studies published in 36 peer-reviewed medical journals (29 integrative, 1 homeopathy and 6 CAM journals) including 1 meta-analysis, 1 systematic review and 23 DBRPCT in evidence of combination remedies in homeopathy
Medicines prepared from inactivated disease products or cultures of micro-organisms (bacteria, virus, fungi) are known as Nosode. The first nosode psorinum was introduced in 1828. Nosodes constitutes less than 4% of all homeopathic medicines listed in homeopathic pharmacopoeia. The first research study in evidence of nosodes was published in 1964 in The British Homeopathic Journal.
Upto the end of year 2010, there have been 298 studies published in 114 medical journals (92 integrative, 9 homeopathy and 13 CAM journals) including 11 meta-analysis, 8 systematic reviews and 81 RCT in evidence of homoeopathy to produce significant to substantial health benefits in a wide array of health conditions.
Evidence of homeopathy is undeniably positive and consistent. It’s a human evidence of experience, gathered from a real-world observation in a real-world setting (not in an ideal artificial laboratory test conditions) giving real-world solutions. The evidence of homeopathy (best research practices and scientific publications) should be made available to the health professionals, medical doctors, clinicians, scientists, organisations, patients and to the general public.
UPTO THE END OF 2011: 164 peer-reviewed papers published between 1950-2011 (inclusive) on RCT in 89 medical conditions
