I have a small doubt and hope that anyone of you would be able to clarify the same, is it true that homeopathic medicine can be taken along with the Allopathic medicine to cure the same illness at the same time.

For example if somebody has a virus fever can he take Homeopathic medicine as well as Allopathic medicine at the same time to cure the virus fever. To me it looks very illogical but my friend says there is no problem in taking both English and Homeopathic medicine simultaneously, by the way my friend is not an homeopath.

My dear Sharif Uddin,

Am I also not homeopath? :razz: I have learnt many principle and rules of homeopathy on this board. You are asking about mixing of allopathic and homeopahtic medicine. I don't know what the rules says about this problem but a renowned homeopathic doctor from India Dr. Ramakishan is using allopathic and homeopathic medicine together. He is very successfully using mixopathy. :razz:

Some of the SO CALLLED classical homeopaths are getting education from him how to treat patients by using the label of homeopathy under MIXOPATHY (ALLOPATHY + HOMEOPAHTY) Umbrella.

It is more a case of using homeopathy where it would be unadvisable to withdraw from allopathic drugs immediately!! As far as Dr R is concerned he leaves it up to the patient. If the patient wishes to have chemotherapy and radiotherapy Dr R will work along side that. It is not a recommendation!! If I turned away all my patients who were taking the birth control pill I would only have a few left!! Many patients come to me who are taking anti depressants. I don;t send them away but work with it until they feel confident and well enough to leave them off with the guidance of their prescribing allopathic doctor. The same with those patients who are on asthma inhalers.

Ricky this is called dual policy.

We have to run according to our professional ethics and not under the desire of patient. If you are doing such things then you are not homeopath

The daughter of a friend of mine was treated by Dr. R for breast cancer. He specifically stated to her that his treatment was more successful if she did not use allopathic treatment (in her case chemotherapy), but that he would treat her regardless of whether she did or did not use it.

If you have his book, on page 164 he cites the reasons chemotherapy should not be used with homeopathy and on page 168 he states the same for radiation. He does accept surgery to excise the tumor.

So, please do not use Dr. Ramakrishnan as an example to support your belief that allopathic medicine and homeopathy can be used together.

The only person who can take a patient off their allopathic medicine by law is their prescribing doctor. There are many drugs that it is unadvisable to withdraw from without consent of the prescribing doctor and for me to insist on them doing so would be against the law in the UK. Therefore I have to tread carefully. When the patient feels better with whatever homeopathic tratment they have had, at this point they see their precribing alopathic doctor and ask for a regime by which they can withdraw safely from drugs such as anti depressants, and steroids. I have got many patients off medication like this and I do call myself a homeopath!!

As far as the contraceptive pill is concerned I would not wish to be responsible for an unwanted pregnancy if I insisted that they came off it before I would treat them. If after successful treatment it is their wish to stop taking it that is fine asit is their decision. Likewise I take patients on HRT and them support them when it is their decision to stop using it. I am sorry if you disagree with my ethics but we will have to agree to disagree in this instance.

Ricky you are admitting what others are trying to say that you are using different therapies with homeopathy beside other therapies.... see your quote "There are many drugs that it is unadvisable to withdraw from without consent of the prescribing doctor and for me to insist on them doing so would be against the law in the UK. "

It means your patients are getting treatment from you as well as from other doctors. Now tell me how can you say that you are doing classical homeopathy and how can you give credit to homeopathy when your patient will be recover from ailness? when they were being on difference therapies

No madam, sadly I would say this is purly mixopathy whether you or somebody else is the prescriber. How can define the process of suppression which you always taught to us on this forum. When you directed members so many many times on this forum to consult "CLASSICAL HOMEOPATH" for their treatment. If classical homeopath are doing the same thing then I don't see any different between allopathic doctor and homeopathic doctor.

It is our habit to say bad words against allopathic drugs and allopathic doctors and now you are admitting what others are saying for many years. This is not fair yes absoultlynot fair.

You also told us so many times that allopathic drugs caused suppression. Please tell when you will use allopathic medicine with homeopathy at the same time then what will be the effect of these medicine over the patient. both have different action in the body. What will happen when one (allopathy) will suppress the ailment and other (homeopathy) will act against it

Madam, this is not fair with homeopathy? We can treat all ailments without taking help from allopathy specially in cancer patients.

I have no doubt that you have cured many patients by treating and adopting this method. I appreciate your effort for the ailing humanity. You have soft corners for the patients. You see that how can you help the patient. For you patient is important yes I agree with you as doctor patient is important to us but No No No,,,, What ever you call yourself but don't call yourself homeopath. As these methods and procedures are not written anywhere in any books of homeopathy and not suggested by Hahnemann. A homeopath acts according to the laws prescribed by Hahnemann.

You said don't use R numbers "I think it is less criminal to use R number with homeopathy then to use allopathic medicine with homeopathy.
