Homeopathy

Sometimes `off the wall' or experimental treatments for rosacea emerge. Often they are not yet FDA approved or not seen as suitable by doctors. This forum is a place for you to explore these sorts of treatments.

Hi Everyone,

Seems i've sparked something of a debate on here!

I'm an open minded individual, but would probably have never considered homeopathy had it not been recommended to me by a family friend. I took the view point that "hey, all medicines came from nature, so why not go back to using them in a purer form".

My initial consulation was £40, which lasted an hour and included my medication, i have monthly follow-up visits which last half an hour and also include medication, this costs £25. I am also free to contact my homeopath at any time if i'm concerned or notice any drastic changes.

I generally have a good diet and healthy lifestyle, so don't think this is to blame. We discussed what was going on in my life when my rosacea bagan and it was during an unhappy time with my ex, lots of changes were going on in my life and lots of stess...could this have been the catalyst for it...who knows??

Yes, i did notice a change when i was on the anti-biotics, it practically cleared it up, however within weeks of coming off the tablets it returned with full force and have since gotton worse.

I've already noticed a changed, my rocasea seems less fierce, less red, my skin is still very pimply but i'll need another medication to treat that symptom.

Will keep you posted.

Homeopathy is in the news again today.

Homeopathic 'vaccine pills' should be withdrawn, says regulator

By Sam Smith
BBC Inside Out

A homeopathic pharmacy endorsed by Prince Charles and the Queen has been told to stop advertising sugar pills labelled as childhood vaccines.

The government's medicines regulator stepped in after an investigation by BBC Inside Out South West.

It found a number of homeopathic products on sale at specialist retailer Ainsworths labelled as vaccines or bearing the name of a childhood illness.

The programme also found evidence the company's owner Anthony Pinkus was prepared to recommend homeopathic pills to parents as an alternative to the whooping cough vaccination.

...

The MHRA has now told Ainsworths to stop advertising a number of products. It has also taken action against another homeopathic pharmacy, Helios, and sent a warning letter to a Jersey-based firm Homeoforce. Both were selling similar products.

...

Homeoforce said products marked "vaccines" were to protect against side effects of vaccines rather than prevent illness. But the experts the BBC spoke to said there was no good evidence they could do either.

An MHRA spokesman said: "It's vital that people are not misled about the effectiveness of homeopathic products. We have taken action to ensure that Ainsworths and Helios are no longer advertising their homeopathic products as alternative treatments to proven, conventional vaccines such as those for measles, meningitis or whooping cough."

However, last week Inside Out was still able to buy a product labelled "Pertussin Vac" from Ainsworths' London shop.

Dr Sarah Wollaston, the MP for Totnes - where three out of 10 five-year-olds are not fully immunised - has written to the health secretary.

She said: "I do not think that any product for which there is no evidence whatsoever that it can confer any benefit should be labelled a vaccine. I don't think there's any excuse for that."

The alternative to using homeopathics sounds a lot more frightening to me:

Regardless of whether homeopathics work or not, this field of medicine will never be given good press due to the fact that it makes no money for pharmaceutical companies.
