Homeopathy Can Help Us In Old Age

From BW, Hamilton

My life has been uneventful health wise.... I think I went to the hospital twice in my life, once for a broken leg when I was four and about 6 months ago for kidney stones. I think I "woke up" to "modern" medicine and then searched for alternatives due to a number of issues, namely:

About 8 years ago my brother in law was dying of cancer. He was operated on and then given both chemotherapy and radiation. In his last couple of weeks of life, I stayed with my sister and helped my brother in law as he died slowly at home. What I saw was a barbaric attempt to save his life.... the burn marks from the radiation, the countless drugs and their horrible side effects... the pain and suffering that he went through before he passed.

 The doctors that treat our elderly residents at our nursing homes were either the few committed ones that care but many of them simply go through the motions without regard to quality of life. I did a study of the pharmaceuticals that were prescribed and I think the average number of drugs that our residents are on is around 10 or 11 different prescriptions. Again, the side effects and the cost to our health care system with no appreciable results or improvements in the quality of life.

 Just over two years ago, my father was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. He went quickly and did not suffer much but the treatments that his doctors wanted him to go through without any real success were also an eye-opener.

 My mother is 83 and is on 8 different prescription medications. I attend her doctor’s appointments to be by her side and try to understand what they are treating. I think that 3 of the 8 drugs that she takes are simply drugs to lessen the side effects of the other 5 prescriptions. I don’t believe that this type of medicine is the best treatment for my mom and I think that big pharmacies and the majority of the medical profession are ignoring more gentle and natural alternatives to health care.

All of the above issues pointed me to a better alternative for health and the wonderful power of the human body to heal itself if stimulated the correct way. On a personal note, I was feeling run down about 6 months ago and went to my family physician. I told him I was tired and burnt out. He suggested anti-depressants! I refused this treatment and went to a homeopath who over the course of the last 6 months has revitalized my body with natural and homeopathic remedies. I am a believer and want to learn more about homeopathy and help others in a non-barbaric way.

My father always said that after a person dies, they are rarely remembered for how much money they had or the possessions that they acquired, instead they are usually remembered for the impact they had on others, good and bad.

It should be noted as well that my passion for this work once I graduate would be in service to elderly and palliative. I think that homeopathy would be an excellent alternative to the medical care that our geriatric population is receiving. I have seen too many of our residents suffering needlessly with pharmaceuticals and chemical interventions that simply mask the symptoms that they have.
