When someone says "Allopathic medicine
does not help" to a brother of a schizophrenic patient I make it a personal issue and yes, I invite the person to a battle (acedemically-as I said.) Obviously, the initial "anonymous" (How very convenient!) initial answer saying allopathic medication
does not help has now been removed by the adminsitrator and hence there is no proof now even of that. I wish I had saved the screen shot of that.
Dr Kackar, I am a severe type A haemophiliac and Homeopathic
medication helped me through out my medical education....I will never forget that when I could not afford the costly allopathic medication, homeopathic medication helped me be what I am today.
BUT THAT DOES NOT MEANT THAT I WILL LET AN ANONYMOUS ANSWER PUT THE LIFE OF A SCHIZOPHRENIA
SUFFERER WHO IS NOW STABLE ENOUGH TO DO A JOB, AT RISK. NO SIR, I WILL NOT ALLOW THAT.
And I will definitely not allow an "anonymous" answer which says "Well there will be no problem even after discontinuing the treatment," to go unchallenged.
It is your personal opinion sir that " RESULTS and EXPERERIENCE always and undoubedly supercede dead facts and data." WHICH IS IN ITSELF CONTRADICTORY.
THE DEAD FACTS & DATA, as you say, are in fact THE CUMULATIVE OUTCOMES of thousand clinical hours of psychiatrist
EXPERIENCES (OBSERVATIONAL AND EXPERIMENTAL).
THE DEAD FACTS & DATA, that you so dismiss, are ROBUST ANALYSIS of RESULTS which have SIGNIFICANCE (BOTH CLINICAL AND STATISTICAL)
When trying to help others, I would rather go on the world wide cumulative experience which have been analysed in a cold
and ruthless manner than depend on personal experience only which may be tinged by our biases and emotions.
AGAIN I SAY THIS, I WOULD NOT HAVE PICKED UP ANY ISSUE IF IT WAS SUGGESTED THAT HOMEO MEDICINE COULD HELP ADDRESS THE SYMPTOMS TOTALLY OR SOMETHING LIKE THAT BUT TO ADVICE A STABLE SCHIZOPHRENIC PATIENT'S BROTHER TO "STOP" THE MEDICATION THAT HE IS CURRENTLY ON (&STABLE) TO TRY (in other words experiment with) OTHER MEDICATION?
NO SIR I WILL NOT LET THAT GO UNCHALLENGED.
I believe that soon I post this reply, the 2nd anonymous answer will also disappear from the answers. It says "Well there will be no problem even after discontinuing the treatment, well i am sorry to say i don't know any Homeopathic physician in banglore, otherwise i would have really helped you, well if you want we can help you in this case, have you watched the video." And because I quote that answer here, my this reply may also get deleted/edited. How I wish there were forums brave enough to allow debate go on without censorship.
Finally, this is my last word on this as I do not want to have an "argument" with a professional who says he favours results and experience over dead facts and data (contradicting himself), who says "(espcially if he has tried convetional medical treatment for 5 yrs , without much/any relief.)" if a schizophrenic patient starting a job is not relief, then I don't understand what is "releif".
Yes, I am ready for the "debate" and thanks to dr kackar for accepting the proposal. Please name the time, mode, date and mode (video chat or text chat etc). But I still want the patient's brother to witness the debate.......as this is what my entire reply was about.....that a stable patient should not be disturbed that too in difficult to treat conditions like schizophrenia and that the patient's brother MUST MAKE AN INFORMED CHOICE. so, if not as a referee let him be there as a witness. And this debate shall not be about defeating homeopathy
...I am no expert at homeopathy and
like my anonymous answer posting fellow, I will not say that any system of medicine is inferior or that it will not be of help to a patient. I WILL LET DOCTOR KACKAR BE THE PERSON TO CHOOSE THE FOCUS OF THE DEBATE AS LONG AS IT IS PATIENT CENTRIC.
