Cancer cure still eludes homeopathy
Simple truth continues to elude homeopathy enthusiasts
So let us do a quick recap: We still have no cure for cancer. Period! There are some treatments that help, but there is no cure. And neither does homeopathy. Let me say this loud and clear: Homeopathy does not have the cure for cancer, regardless what this PhD hopeful says.
Dr Syed Mahboob Alam, a doctor working towards his doctoral degree under the supervision of former Chairman of the University of Karachi (KU) Pharmacognosy Department Dr Mansoor Ahmed, has discovered that various types of cancer could be treated by administering herbal medicines to the patients in the homeopathic system. It was usually perceived before this research that there was no cure for cancer in allopathic or homeopathic system of medicine.
Ok so we have a doctor working towards his doctoral degree (whatever the hell that means!) who thinks he’s figured out the homeopathy can cure some types of cancer. I want more details of course, this could possibly be earth shattering!
Alam has, to date, received 107 patients suffering from different types of cancer including throat, breast, mouth and bone cancer and has successfully treated 104 patients. Two patients withdrew and one died of the ailment. Out of 104 patients, 38 chose homeopathic system without seeking treatment elsewhere, while 66 patients turned to Alam after becoming disillusioned with other systems of treatment.
Successfully cured 104 patients. Out of 107! That translates to a success rate of about 97%! That’s fantastic news. I honestly wish this would be true, since then my close relatives that are living with cancer could be cured.
Alam and Ahmed conducted the clinical studies at Dr Nadir Homeopathic Hospital, Super Highway, Hussaini Institute of Alternative Medicine, Old Hussaini Blood Blank opposite Nishtar Park, and Sindh Medical Centre, Hilal-e-Ahmer, Clifton, Karachi. Ahmed told The News that they have opened Al-Murtaza Homeopathic Hospital in Ancholi Society to treat the patients for research and humanitarian purpose.
What a load of horse shit! So they did their “clinical studies”, and went straight to open their own clinic to treat for “research and humanitarian purpose”? Smells like quackery to me! You know what they say, if they walk like quacks, talk like quacks, they most likely are quacks.
Alam claimed that cardiac disease is number one ailment in the world followed by cancer. “More specifically we can say that there is no complete cure of cancer in the allopathic system of medicine. However, we have the cure of cancer by herbal medicines through homeopathic system. These drugs act when they are administered to the patient in diluted form. They inhibit the cancerous cells and provide immunity against unwanted physiological process. The treatment can be administered regardless of age, intensity and period of disease,” said Alam while explaining the treatment process.
No douche bag you don’t. There is no cure for cancer and you do not have the cure “of cancer by herbal medicines through homeopathic system”. You have no cure, and I challenge you to prove me wrong. For the sake of humanity show a hard headed, naysayer, unbelieving skeptic wrong! You’d be doing me, my family and millions of other people a huge favor by proving that I am an arrogant skeptic. I hope you are able to do that.
In most cases the patients are unaware that they have been victim of cancer. It only comes to light when they (patients) grudgingly come to the doctors to get treatment. By that time it is already very late. “Herbal medicines work like magic,” Ahmed said. He hinted that in this clinical study, 106 diagnosed cases of cancers of different types were studied and in majority of the cases, the standard allopathic treatment that is surgery, chemotherapy and radiotherapy had failed; homoeopathic treatment was then compared to surgery, chemotherapy and radiotherapy.
Ahmed let me share a secret with you: Herbal medicines are magic. Yep, because when the herb actually works it is made into a medicine, it does not remain herabl for too long. There is not alternative versus conventional medicine, there is only working medicine and non-working medicine period.
Dr Syed Mahboob Alam has not presented anything to substantiate his claims. He has not shown the homeopathy works at all, let alone cure cancer. His so-called, clinical studies have not been presented, all this seems to be is a couple of quacks, who want in to the sCAM money train, who make fantastical claims to lure people into their newly opened clinic. I predict that the famed study of theirs will never see the light of day, it will never be published in any reputable medical/cancer journals, it will never be replicated, and that these two bozos will continue making their claims so long as people keep coming through their clinic’s front doors. We’ve seen this happen too many times before to hope it will play out any differently. But, as I said, there is nothing that will please me more than these guys showing my armchair skepticism to be wrong.
