Why Homoepathic science is being questioned?
The scientificity of no system of medicine is perhaps subject to more criticism and questions than that of Homoeopathy. The question that we
have in our minds is –why? Why only Homoeopathy, of all the methods of treatment, is under such a scrutiny by the scientific community?
The answer is simple – according to scientists, if Homoeopathy is to be accepted as a science then the scientific community has to reject a
few of its established concepts which is graded as ‘laws’. Since the discovery of Homoeopathy in 1790 it was gaining popularity in leaps and
bounds. The scientific community had no problems with it unless Hahnemann came up with a process called ‘Potentisation’ in 5th edition of
Organon and a Chemist called Avogadro came up with a number in 1860 that changed Chemistry forever.
Recent Resarch Breaks An Old Jink:
Earlier the notion was that matter or mass cannot be created or destroyed .It was also considered that Energy and matter are two distinct
realm in nature governed by separte laws. Throughout the nineteenth century most physicist regard Newton’s dynamic laws as sacrosanct.
But it became increasingly clear during the early years of twentieth century that many phenomena,especially those associated with
radiation, defy explanation by Newtonian Physics. Although no one had any notion about the way radiation and matter are relatedor by
what process matter emits or absorbs radiation,one had any doubt that these questions would be answered in time by proper application
of Newton’s laws of motion and Maxwell’s theory of electro magnetic field.
On the surface, the results paint a rosy picture for the EU. Table 1 shows that compared to companies elsewhere, on average
European aerospace and defense companies spent more on R&D as a percent of sales in 2007 and had lower operating
margins. They also spent invested more as a percent of sales and had higher R&D spending per employee.
