Hi to all,

What would you say were the reasons why such a high percentage of cases that are posted on this website end in disappointment, confusion and failure?

Would you consider any of those reasons to be (in no particular order):

*Inadequate education?

*Practical inexperience on the part of the homoeopath?

*Insufficient information on which to base a prescription?

*An over-reliance on keynote symptoms which is supposed to substitute for the fact that you can't actually see and hear and touch the patient?

*Attempting to prescribe in acute situations in isolation when you know nothing about the chronic state of the patient?

*Unrealistic expectations of the person seeking treatment from an unidentified stranger over the internet?

*The homoeopath's ego motivations?

*Ego competitiveness between homoeopaths and their preferred methods?

*A lack of accountability in following up cases to see if they actually were ever resolved?

Anything else?
If we can identify the problems, we may be able to improve the situation.

Dear Chris,

By posting on the internet, Barb's daughter just got cured of Pink Eye. A case of intolerable morning sickness recently got cured here. There's no doubt that full cases rarely get taken and this is not an ideal situation, to be sure, but I've also noticed that people who post here often report outrageous and reckless prescribing by the "professional" homeopaths they've been to see. This happens so often that I'm wary about recommending that people see a "homeopath" as an alternative to "seeing" us.

Also, the people who visit here often say, "Please don't tell me to see a homeopath, I can't afford one/there are none nearby", etc.

Consider Rajan, for instance, who has taken his son to at least 2 qualified homeopaths and neither one has been able to help. (But we have, on this BB, been able to help Rajan's mother who has kidney failure.)

The thing about the people who ask for help here is that they know they are getting help for nothing, and they know what that means. Nothing is guaranteed them. Even so, a lot of us here really try.

There are definite limitations. People don't know how to present a homeopathic case. It's frustrating. Do you have any ideas on how we can better assist people who ask for help here?

Snoopy

Hi,

By posting this thread I'm trying to identify the issues.

Perhaps the successful cases on completion could be re-directed to the 'Restored Health' in their entirety. This way, people who wish to post their own cases could see what's involved, what sort of questions need to be asked. As well, those of us who use this site to study, compare notes etc, can utilize these cases in their entirety too.

Perhaps there could be a basic questionaire that people are directed to beforehand when they want to post a case.

Perhaps there could be some guidelines for those who suggest a remedy in a particular case. They must state their reasons, not just "take Apocynum 200C, 3 doses".

Hi Chris,

All the points you mentioned in you're first post, are the faults of homoeopaths in general and why homoeopathy fails in general. IT has nothing to do with Internet prescribing directly.

I do believe, though, that to be a good internet prescriber one has to have a God given "talent" to visualize a patient inspite of not seeing them. And I agree with Snoopy. But we seem to be the only ones supporting this "Inferior Method" of prescribing. But our day will come, nonetheless.

I like your're suggestion in your second post..Yes I will get ALL our Internet private patients (many of them from this BB too) who are doing extremely well to post in the cases cured section. Then the sceptical ones can judge for themselves.

I thank GOD for this ability and the blessing of a method that we have at out disposal to help that group of people (and anybody else) who can only avail of the internet (for various reasons) for relief from their suffering.

Warm regards,
doctorleela

Dear Chris,

A lot of good suggestions here. Where would the questionaire be? I had one once. On one person's thread I wrote out all the questions, and every time someone wrote in I'd say, "Please answer the questions on so-and-so's thread" and no one did! And the thread finally disappeared to page 3 and beyond....

Also, do we need a questionaire for acutes and chronics? Cuz we don't want to mix up acute and chronic symptoms when taking an acute case. I mean, just look at Barb's daughter's pink eye case, which was cured with Nux vomica, which no one would have found with essence prescribing.

Yes, it would be a really good idea if people could give a reason or rubrics to back up their prescriptions.

I am with the opinion that homeopathy is such kind of system that it has privilage over the other system. We mainly based on symtoms so we could prescribe easily on internet by reading symptoms of the patient.

This is not the case with allopathy. As they mainly depend upon physical and pathological picture of the patient.

Hallo crisG
Thanks for addressing this issue.
As a rule, I donít prescribe over the net.
It is not my business to judge the abilities of the homeopaths out there.
Instead, what I can have a look at is their tools.
The synthetic repertories are very unreliable as shown on the delusions thread, and the Materia medicas in use, except Hahnemannís, and Allenís Encyclopaedia are incomplete and do often reflect more the opinion of the author.
And another likely problem area are the remedy suppliers, We have at least control over this end by supplying remedies of our own stock in our own patients.

Taken this into account, even with the best of intentions the homeopath cannot come up with the simile, and even if he does so, poor remedy quality takes away from his endeavour.

I donít agree with the opinion, that if there is no money involved, there is no responsibility on the side of the person who prescribes.
If you take on to give the advice, you deal with someone elseís health no matter, and you are responsible for the result of your advice (praise or blame).

Hahns,

In respect to your "qaulity of remedy" situation.

Cannot this be overcome in a very simple way?

Anyone from America simply orders from HAHNEMANN LABOROATORIES,

Anyone from Europe simply orders from DOLISOS, etc.., etc...

Hans,
I have Hahnemann's and Allen's MM...also Hering's Guiding Symptoms - what is your opinion of Hering?
Do you think there is any value to any of the clinical MM....Farrington for example?

With respect, Denise
