Homeopathy and AIDS
Posted by keelynet on January 25, 2009
Hard to believe. I’ve never, EVER read of any success with AIDS using homeopathy.
“Sherr believes that modern medicine is a conspiracy, and that homeopathic remedies can cure Malaria and AIDS. His latest venture in Tanzania involves travelling there to meet a fellow homeopath and set up a clinic, and in the first entry in his blog he bemoans the lack of funding available to do this: “There is plenty of money for AIDS, and there is plenty of money for Africa, but when it comes to homoeopathy- brick wall, a polite ‘f off’. If I sound frustrated about this, it is because I am. After 10 years of emailing and conferencing and pleading and applying, I remembered what I have always known. Homoeopathy is the odd one out, the weird freak of medicine. And society and the conventional powers don’t want to know.” It’s not that homeopathy is the “odd one out”, in fact it shares the same thing that all medicines have in common – if they can’t be demonstrated to work, they won’t get funded. If Jeremy really thinks homeopathy works, he should be conducting clinical trials in the UK, rather than ‘f-ing off’ to Tanzania where he can make wild claims without anyone around to check his data. Claims like: “I have decided that the main aim is to get out there and cure as many people as possible. I know, as all homeopaths do, that you can just about cure AIDS in many cases. But shhhh… I’m not allowed to say that, so you didn’t hear it.” You’re allowed to say it Mr. Sherr, but unfortunately you do have to back it up with evidence.” – Source
