Allopathy vs. Homeopathy ~ What's Your Philosophy of Medicine?

A Chart Contrasting Allopathy with Homeopathy

by Deborah Olenev, C.C.H.

Excerpt ~

Allopathy
Illnesses occur as the result of an invasion by an outside source, such as viruses, germs or bacteria.

Homeopathy
llnesses result when emotional, psychological or spiritual stresses become overwhelming, and thus weaken the body. The inability to process these emotional stresses leaves the individual susceptible to the disrupting influence of disease agents, such as viruses.

Allopathy
The inner world of emotions is not valued in terms of any real power or influence over the workings of the physical body. The strongest influence on the body is exerted by the physical world.

Homeopathy
The emotions, attitudes, loves, longings and disappointments exert the greatest stresses on an individual, and have the power to disturb health.

Allopathy
There are no laws to guide the physician in treating illnesses. No philosophy to aid in the evaluation of the results of treatment.

Homeopathy
There are definite principles and laws of cure which the prescriber must rely upon and know intimately in order to effectively treat the sick. There is a logic to the order, and the process of the cure, and an ability to evaluate when changes are not occurring in the correct order.

Allopathy
"The treatment of illness depends entirely upon experience, upon what can be found out by giving medicines to the sick" (The result is constantly shifting methods, what is true today as a protocol for treating illness may not be true tomorrow).

Homeopathy
The treatment of illness depends upon a knowledge of medicines and their healing power, acquired by experimentation on healthy people, who can describe the fine nuances of change in attitudes, emotional, physical and mental states.

Allopathy
Disease is characterized by changes in the tissues. Unless it can be measured, it cannot be treated.

Homeopathy
The alterations in feeling are important, the changes in emotional states precede illness and indicate the remedy needed. These immeasurable changes are the precursors of disease, and they are symptoms which can be effectively utilized by the homeopath to guide him or her to the similar remedy.

Allopathy
Removal of symptoms is the ideal of cure, while the disease itself remains untreated.

Homeopathy
Removal of symptoms along with the disease and restoring health is the ideal of cure.

Allopathy
Frequently resort to aggressive methods, and toxic drugs with side effects. Superimpose a medicinal disease in place of the natural one with the disease growing inside often leading to surgery.

Homeopathy
Ideals-gentle, prompt, mild, permanent.

Allopathy
Frequent repetition of the medicine, because the primary action of the controlled doses lasts only a few hours.

Homeopathy
One dose sets the vital force on the way to recovery. The next one is administered only if the symptoms relapse.

Allopathy
Medicines are chosen for their opposite effect from the symptoms they are meant to treat.

Homeopathy
Medicines are chosen for their similarity with the characteristics of the patient, to work with the immune system and not against it (following the law of similars).

Allopathy
Crude or large material doses that work on a chemical level.

Homeopathy
Infinitesimally small doses are employed, just enough to set a reaction going, like switching on a light. The medicines work on an electro-magnetic level.

Allopathy
Frequent use of surgery. If you can't cure it, remove it.

Homeopathy
Rare use of surgery. Conditions can be healed with remedies, except where tissue changes have occurred due to the delay on the part of the patient, or where there are congenital abnormalities.

Allopathy
Treat for the disease.

Homeopathy
Treat for the individual

Allopathy
Disbelief in the healing power of nature. "The physician is more skillful than the human organism in curing disease." "The recuperative energies of nature were to be trusted but seldom and sparingly." "Physicians felt justified in intervening to any desired extent in the disease process."8***

Homeopathy
Belief in the healing power of nature. The homeopath imitates the pattern of symptoms that the immune system produces, believing that the vital force creates symptoms as signs of it's derangement, and as a means of achieving equilibrium. He therefore follows nature's lead, but adds the energy of the similar remedy to the healing process.

You know Pam, sometimes (not always) the best treatment is a combination of the two.

Hi Pam,

I think it's too late in our evolution now to rely completely and solely on homeopathy. Had we done so when it really mattered - say a few hundred years ago- things would be OK. Sadly, now we also need allopathy because we have already damaged our bodies to the degree that nature is not enough. It would be nice if we could rely totally on nature, but I don't think we can now.

Hi Pam, thanks for posting that information. I think that explains further what Dr. Stoll has been trying to teach people in regards to homeopathy. I believe it can happen and is happening for people, they just have to want it and do it. It may mean major lifestyle changes for some people. In the last 2 years I have made major lifestyle changes in diet, exercise, and skilled relaxation. I still have a long ways to go in the emotions department which plays a very important part in homeopathy.

Thanks, Jon.

Exactly as I have been saying for the past 20 years.

Although there is a basic conflict between the philosophies of homeopathy and allopathy, I believe homeopathy should always be used first (except for acute problems like trauma) and allopathy should be used only as a last resort.

Thanks, Maz.

Allopathy is necessary for the 15% of conditions presented to the doctor for treatment. The problem is that the allopaths insist upon having 100%.

Namaste`
