Hi Hip, I found most of your comments in your recent posts quite interesting (and refreshing). I can relate to much of what you've written, because so many of your thoughts are similar to mine when I first happened across homeopathy and other vibrational medicines/therapies many years ago. I think a key word to consider is vibrational. From my own understanding, it doesn't really mesh well with the "Newtonian" model of modern medicine. So many vociferous arguments against homeopathic remedies have to do with them not having any molecules left in the preparation, as if that is supposedly the modus operendi for its purported effectiveness. It isn't. It all has to do with vibrations, and the effects it can have on our bodies. There are many kinds of vibrational therapies that can be considered besides homeopathy, such as herbs, gemstones, sound, color, light, even prayer. So much has been made in various literature in recent years about how bad "red meat" is, and that it causes so many diseases. My own take is that eating red meat has less to do with its inherent "badness", and more to do with how animals are treated inhumanely (non-harmonious vibrations) before the meat ends up on our tables. I've heard (and believe) that saying a prayer, or blessing our food before a meal can actually change the vibrations of what we eat, and negate most or all of its negative influences. Obviously, most aspects of vibrational medicine are so contrary to modern medicine perspective, that it's unlikely much research will ever be done in this area. Plus, there's really not a lot of money to be made, even if its efficacy were somehow proven. I'm not sure if you're aware that some veterinarians use homeopathy almost exclusively in their practice, and almost always use it before resorting to various drug treatments. Obviously, they've seen the results, and continue to have pet owners seeking them out. Plus, there's no placebo effects to consider when it comes to treating animals. Perhaps I'll do a google search, and try to find some of the videos I've seen of animals before and after receiving a homeopathic remedy. Some are pretty amazing.
