Re: Homeopath looking for job

I'm not a believer .. I'm always shocked at how this witch craft is sold in pharmacies as real medicine. The other day my 5 yr old was stung by a wasp in a shopping centre, wife took her into the nearest (chain) pharmacy, said she'd been stung, asked for some antihistamine or similar..

She was given 3 different preparations, made by the same company of course - take 7-9 of these little balls, dissolve one these tablets under the tongue and pour some of this liquid on the sting.. Complete shyte that cost nearly 50chf. Partly her fault for not speaking the language of course.. But after 40 mins the sting was still swelling and kid still in pain, went into another pharmacy who gave her real medicine which fixed the problem in 5 minutes.

I read the packages when i came home, no mention of stings, insects, bites, allergy.. Generic well being or something.

So yes I'm a definite homeophobic

Re: Homeopath looking for job

When somebody on the plane is having a heart attack, I wonder how many times the pilot asks if there is a homeopath on board.

Rubbish. Am sure the doctor knows what he is doing and the only situation where conventional medicine should definitely be chosen over homeopathy is infection, when any homeopath with experience and diagnostic skills would recommend antibiotics anyway.

Quite. It's bad enough when doctors don't keep up with current practice and research, but when they actively promote magic potions...

My doctor is Facharzt FMH für Allgemeinmedizin and homeopathy. He is an excellent doctor and I had always the opportunity to choose between homeopathy and conventional medicine treatments.
This is the doc I was talking about: http://www.paracelsus.uzh.ch/general/gantenbein_cv.html
As I said, I find him excellent. Perhaps I should mention that I was never seriously ill and didn't have to go very often to see him. The worst was mild neurodermatitis.

Homeopathy is a pseudo science from the 17th century. We really are quite sure these days that there is no "Geisteskraft" - spiritual power - in any form of matter that can be used by adding a drop of something into a barrel of water. I would honestly not use any "regular" doctor who also believes in homeopathy and for me is there absolutely no situation I can imagine where homeopathy should be chosen over science.

Re: Homeopath looking for job

Hello there,

many thanks for the quick replies. Unfortunately we were away for a few days, that is why I can thank you guys only now. Of course I will ask in Bern about her degree.

The MEBEKO says, they will check whether it will be recognized or not. They do not guarantee that it will be recognized. So, I am interested to know whether somebody from India with same degree has any experience regarding this?

Re: Homeopath looking for job

Under what title do placebos fall? It's quite amazing really that we throw homeopathy out with the bath water whilst performing placebo knee or other operations. But of course the little white placeo pills are given by a real doctor so they must work.

Hi all,

my wife is looking for a job in Switzerland. She has done her Bachelors in Homeopathy in India and has worked as Assistant doctor for one and half years in India.

We have been looking for opportunities be it full or part time job, internship or anything else for her in central Switzerland like in canton Lucerne, Bern.

We do not know whether her Bachelors degree is recognized here or not. Neither we know how to search for a job in Switzerland.

I will really appreciate if I get some information about how to start applying.

Thanks and regards in advance!
I suggest finding a job through Divination or Tarot cards. I've had good results with both approaches.

The point about placebos is that they work because you don't know they are placebos. If you go to a homeopath can you be sure that you won't get any meds with active ingredients....

The point about homeopathy is that most people don't know it doesn't work, so same difference really.

So if your GP decides that your condition doesn't merit anything "real", why shouldn't he give you a homeopathic tincture?

I wonder if the extreme supersmart anti homeopathy guys are equally anti whatever brand name the other medical palcebos are being sold under and go around telling people who get them that they don't actually work, or consider whether doing so may actually lessen chances of the placebo having its placebo effect?

Because I am of average intelligence and therefore understand that I am getting sugar water. If he thinks a placebo is what I need am I all for it - but he should not tell me!

Err, because he's making you, or worse, your insurance company, pay a lot of money for a completely useless product? Now if they just filled a bottle from the tap and gave it to you for free...

Sure, I would be, at least. CAre to name me any examples?

Actually, now you mention it, I was disgusted to be asked, by the staff in the hospital I've been in for the last eight days (home now) if I wanted another treatment that wouldn't be paid for by my health insurance.

They've already given me one rather dubious product (Traumanase) and one that's been shown to have no effect (Chondrosulf) but were then suggesting that I might want another one called Vita Proflex, wjhich ios no more than a fad dietary supplement.

Yes, I did go off about it, just a little bit, realising that it wasn't the fault of the nurse doing the asking, but I will make a big point of it when I see my surgeon next.

The logic appears to be - substance X in the blood is part of the cartilage creation process, so although we know that substance Y, which is the vital component of substance X, is not able to be digested via the oral route, and even if it were it wouldn't be able to be transported to the site in a usable form, let's ingest quantities of it anyway. After all, what harm can it do?

GRRrrrrrr.

Even after all that, though, it's still not as bad as selling pure water under 300 different names as a cure for pretty much anything you care to name.

Re: Homeopath looking for job

OP just wanted to know if his wife can find a job not what EF thinks about homeopathy...poor guy.
OP,
I know quite a few Swiss who would first try a homeopathic remedy/medicine and then a classic (allopathic) medicine...
Have no idea if your wife can find a job in this area though. But the market is full of all sorts of therapists&therapies (I know that because our postal box is always stuffed with ads), so you never know.
Good luck.

It's not as if the guy asking for info on weed growing gets nothing but unbiased help... or anyone else on this forum. It's what you get on an open forum and to be fair rather on topic in this case for EF standards.
