Why is homeopathy attacked?
The decision to attack homeopathy was a conscious decision by the group of (I am sorry to say) eminent quacks who ruled medicine around the 18th century. They had a roaring practice and were powerful because of their proximity to and membership of secret societies. These people were alarmed when Hahnemann digressed from allopathy and the cream of allopaths followed him.
Many of those who joined Hahnemann were skeptics but being endowed with honesty and integrity they studied homeopathy and practiced as per the principles to find that it worked and was able to cure people who suffered very complex problems. They converted in hordes. This happened in several countries like Germany, USA, India, and UK. Homeopathy was on its way to be the leading treatment modality.
The manner in which allopathy was dominated by quacks and imposters and the fact that it was unable to produce results also made other genuine practitioners of the system study other methods like naturopathy, herbals and chiropractic. Medical colleges started teaching these subjects and hospitals devoted wings to them. The keen doctors observed the results in front of their eyes. The leaders were leading the profession towards an integrated approach that was observant, cautious, empathetic and eager to learn.
However this was bad news for the quacks who formed the American Medical Association to check the exodus. Doctors practicing other systems were threatened with cancellation of licence. They also found an ally in J D Rockefeller the powerful oil Barron who was limping after his initial foray into petrochemical drugs had disastrous results. (It is written about in the book The Story of Aspirin). He himself adopted homeopathy for himself and family and never deviated till the end. To be fair to him he also wanted to back homeopathy but was deterred by the people who wanted him to prop up the collapsing fortunes of allopathy.
He thus took the plunge prodded by one William Gates, a glib talker and master manipulator. However Rockefeller faced a disgruntled profession who were unwilling to drop their ethical considerations. Therefore an old draft of the AMA was sharpened by a retired school teacher called Abraham Flexner as instructed by Rockefeller and the recommendation was that only the flawed chemical model propped by the germ and virus theory proposed by a laboratory assistant of Dr Antoine Beauchamp, MD be followed. The battle between the two is well recorded as Beauchamp vs Pasteur and the book as a pdf available in the internet makes for interesting reading.
The Flexner Report 1910 banned all systems of holistic medicine and Rockefeller used his clout to close down all colleges and hospitals that allowed holistic treatment and took over the rest. Even among them dissenters were sacked and Rockefellers trusted aide's took over. One can read the book "Rockefellers Medicine Men" banned in publication but available on the net. Later Rockefeller was joined by I G Farben the Nazi chemical giant that was behind Auschwitz atrocities and together they set up the medical system that prevails today. You can know about I G Farben from the book "The Hell's Cartel".
Medicine thus took a turn it should never have. Unfortunately these developments came at a time when practitioners were beginning to understand health, and under the leadership of Dr William Osler were appreciative of a holistic and empathetic approach with ethics and the doctor patient relationship as the strong base of medicine.
"Just a century ago, there were 22 homeopathic medical schools, 100 homeopathic hospitals, and over 1,000 homeopathic pharmacies. Boston University, Stanford University, and New York Medical College all taught homeopathy.
This all changed due to the Flexner Report — officially known as Medical Education in the United States and Canada — in 1910. The report was an attempt to align medical education under a set of norms that emphasized laboratory research and the patenting of medicine. The report was funded by John Rockefeller and Andrew Carnegie, among others.
Rockefeller and Carnegie offered grants to the best medical schools in America — with a caveat: only an allopathic-based curriculum could be taught. Thus, Rockefeller and Carnegie systematically dismantled the courses of these schools by removing any mention of the natural healing power of herbs and plants, or of the importance of diet to health.
Rockefeller used his power to influence Congress into declaring the AMA (American Medical Association) the only body with the right to grant medical school licenses in the United States. This suited Rockefeller perfectly – he then used the AMA to compel the Government to destroy the natural competition, which it did through regulating medical schools.
After the Flexner Report, the AMA only endorsed schools with a drug-based curriculum. It didn’t take long before non-allopathic schools fell by the wayside due to lack of funding and fear mongering/smear campaigns against natural remedies.
The result is a system which churns out doctors who are deficient in nutritional, herbal, and homeopathic knowledge and who disregard the idea that what you eat can actually heal or hurt you.
While physicians encourage patients to make healthy food choices, only 27 percent of U.S. medical schools actually offer students the recommended 25 hours of nutritional training, according to a perspective piece in the July 2015 issue of Academic Medicine. The word “nutrition” is not included in board examination requirements for internal medicine certification, and cardiology fellows do not need to complete a single requirement in nutrition counseling.
