i live like 4 hours away from where one of the homeopathic doctor who did this study .im going to pay her a visit as soon as i get 500$ lol i cant stand medicine i think this is the hope that i needed . no one ruin my delusion lol what are your guys thoughts?
What is the actual medicine they use in this homeopathy
Two whole cases. That’s some sample group. Seems legit.
Sounds like the results were cherry picked from possibly numerous cases they were handling
Oh gawd …
And here I thought @everhopeful was gonna bring down the hammer on this one. But instead hits him with a subtle jab to the left pectoral muscle.
Op you’re wasting your precious money if you do this sorry but meds are the best we got. And $500 is a lot of money.
Two false statements made in this paper:
This is somehow true because homeopathy is an alternative medicine and it can produce similar effects as if placebo is given. However, the diseases cause great “economic and social burden”… what? This is straight-out assuming that disabled people are a burden to the society and the economy. They must realize that there are companies in the economy that benefits by making treatments for disabled people.
Uh… homeopathy is an alternative medicine, a pseudoscience. There is a lack of evidence to support this claim.
It shouldn’t be controversial that mental illness is a social and economic burden. It’s one of the leading causes of disability, and the treatment costs are staggering, but dwarfed in comparison to the lost incomes. It also places a large burden on families and loved ones. I get that you don’t want to be called a burden, but a disease is always a burden and it won’t help anyone to pretend otherwise (especially not us).
I understand. I just don’t like it when a research or an academic paper assumes that everyone with a disability is a burden. An academic paper should not be prejudiced nor it should drift away from its original topic.
I’ve been just called a burden for the past 3 years of my neuromuscular disease and I’m often feeling very hurt by it. Words can be so deadly…
Thank you for your opinion. I can’t deny the burden that we put on family members or the economy… so I’m going to try harder. My disabilities can’t stop me, haha.
Maybe we are a burden on some and overall but others rely on us. Doctors, pharmacists, therapists, healthcare providers, etc… would be out of job if not for us. No???
Then again it’s mostly the govt and insurance companies paying those people cuz I sure as hell cant afford to pay for apripraZole and pdoc appointments and therapists out of pocket every month.
But the world goes round and operates in a system how it is?? And we are part of that???
As long as we are progressing and giving up then we have reason to feel guilty for creating a burden on others. Humans are made to rely on each other. It teaches us compassion and gratitude. The world will one day turn around so that those who were a burden become a huge asset. Have faith
Yes-it could definitely be called a burden . For me it depends then on how society approaches it as being a burden. The ‘You’re at fault for those burdens’ vs ’ It’s a burden but you’re not in any way to blame for those’ types of people.
If we describe “burden” as someone in society who collects more then they paid then there are many burdens in society and I doubt the mentally ill rank very high on that list
Why are you guys upset over this? I don’t understand it. They called the diseases a burden, not the people who have them. Burden is a perfectly appropriate word to use in that context, and this is a regularly used phrasing that does not pass judgment in any way. There are many very valid reasons to be upset about how we are treated, but an innocent, regularly used term that many well-meaning researchers have used to describe our illness is not one of them.
I’m a beast of burden
Makes sense to me. My SZ is not that much of a burden these days, but my heart condition is. Nine emergency admissions this year and counting. All those tests and scans plus I’m getting a new pacer before Xmas. I’m grateful society helps bear the cost of this illness, it would have destroyed me financially.
That is no doubt true of clinicians,psychiatrists and psychologists etc. I’m a lot less sure that the general public are on the same wavelength .
