Dear Dr.Thierry Clerc,
How much homeopathic tretments are successful for curing infections esp. chronic infections TB etc. as compared to antibiotics treatments? Should we take chance in it?
Chronic issues are difficult, especially infections, as they carry a lot of risk of loss of live or debilitating side-effects. For chronic issues, I would always recooment to see a specialist and if required that the homeopath works hand in hand with the allopathic doctor if this is what the patient wants. At the end, we are here to help the patient and provide the right information but respect their choice on how they want to be treated (homeopathy only, allopathy only or both).
By experience, if the condition is not life critical, trying homeopathy alone should work but both the practitioner and the patient should know the warning signs. If there is risk of life and the homeopath or patient do not feel comfortable, then allopathy can work, and homeopathy can be used afterwards to reduce any side-effects.
In any forms of treatments, there are pros and cons (for allopathy – poisoning), and for this reason it is not important to set rules but guidelines, and use common sense.
Having said that, there are a lot of reports about homeopathy being sucessful for tuberculosis. Look at some materia medica or browse the Hpahy site.
I hope this helps.
PS – also, I am not a doctor, I practice in Europe where the 4-year qualification does not allow you to use this terminology if you have not complete a qualification of allopathic doctor in parallel. To see more about my experience though, you can check: www.thierry-health.com
