Most recents (18)

In response to Twitter's policy of banning heterodox opinions about the efficacy and relative costs of COVD-19 responses, I have one word to say:

Homeopathy has got to be one of the dumbest, most ascientific medical theories that exists in the modern world (except perhaps from some shamanistic beliefs of an untouched aboriginal tribe in the Amazon).
Created in 1796, it is just absurd to imagine that diluting an active ingredient to ratios of approximately one molecule in a volume of water the size of an ocean has anpotential healing qualities beyond the placebo effect.

Everyone in #India know #Homeopathy and #ayurvedic interventions for #COVID19, #Corona is government's biggest #fraud and #quackery on people. Confused #media will playback whats been told. It's a #Cancer eating the community, sponsored by the some local governments. Real BS.
Don't expect the #government to do its people any good in these times. Either they favor big #pharma to rush untested molecules forcash in, or peddle nonsense #pseudoscience. Either way the people lose and it is upto compassionate #publichealth well wishers to educate otherwise.
See what happened with #coronil #itolizumab and #Tocilizumab and all the other stuff being broadcasted without any proper evidence. For some, the pandemic is a way to get their pockets big. This includes educated well trained doctors like @zev_dr and quacks like @drbrcofficial

#Ayurveda and #Homeopathy has no clinical efficacy, probably more unknown toxic effects, yet to be studied. Homeopathy is at best placebo. #MedTwitter
Thread by @drsnehilmishra is good diplomatic discussion, but not scientific.
👇👇👇 What contribution?
Modern medicine practitioners need to stop this comparison business and concentrate on their work at hand in improving the science they practice, through clinical or basic science based studies that are practice changing.
#pseudoscience #science #MedEd
They would have been treated for diseases that would be self limiting and improved without the need for medicine. This is anecdotal. Such statements can be used by #quacks and #frauds to defend their fraud practice becoz a #modern doctor said so. We need to be careful with words. Image

So this #Stupidity hits close to home. So a #discussion on #arsenicum album 30.
📌30 means 30 times diluted, standard for #Homeopathy
📌What is #diluted? ➡️ #Arsenic trioxide
📌#homeopath says only 0.443mg of compound per pellet
📌Thats #safety levels right? ➡️ NO.

#Arsenic whatever form, concentration, level, is #dangerous #harmful to #humans.
📌Even LOW DOSE intermediate to #long use can lead to #Cancer
📌Actually, many types of #Cancers - #skin, #liver, #bladder, #kidney, #lung
📌Those with #diabetes #heartdisease its #deathwish
📌NOT one proper #study on this #drug in #Medical #history

"#Homoeopathy is a branch of universal #medicine based on the ‘principle of the like’ (Similia Similibus Curentur = Like treats Like) and in #minimum doses." .. I
It means that a #substance in a massive dose generates #pathological #symptomatology; has the possibility to #cure it, if applied in the #minimum doses obtained by #dilution and intense #agitation, in other words, #homoeopathic #succussion. .. II
#Homoeopathy is derived from a #Hippocratic #concept developed by the #German #physician, Samuel Hahnemann (1755–1843), with serially #diluted #medicines (1:9, 1:99, 1:999 and others) in water-ethanol vehicle alternating #dilution with #succussion. .. III

Oh @JessWhitecroft this is glorious 😄

“[Water has] A very selective memory, apparently, because it remembers the minute quantities of agnus castus it was homeopathically introduced to last Thursday or whatever, but
thankfully doesn’t remember the brain-breaking quantities of poop that have washed through it since organisms first evolved rudimentary assholes. That water remembers dinosaur shit, apparently.
Like, why are we even listening to paleontologists when we could be hanging out in the homeopathy section of the drugstore, talking to small vials of expensive water who were once on first name terms with a T-Rex’s anus?”

Over the past week I’ve been getting so many calls from friends all over asking me to diagnose if they are #COVID infected. Honestly I’m no doctor but just an early test mule on the virus. My Q&A typically ranges as follows. I hope it helps some of you from needless paranoia.
1/n First thing to iron out is the difference between #regularflu Vs #COVIDflu. I’ve done some research and found this helpful table for you guys. 90% of you have just a regular flu owing to seasonal changes. Don’t panic ! However if you’re in the 10% read on.
2/n Assuming all your symptoms are #COVID in nature immediately #homequarantine in a separate room. Testing is hard to get by in #MaharashtraBachao #Delhi so don’t bother waiting for your turn. Begin treatment for novel Corona while taking care of not infecting others around

6 months ago how many of you had heard of #Hydroxychloroquine?
Well I knew about it
Here's my story as I support @realDonaldTrump and his push for the use of this drug to treat #COVID19
I was DX with Chronic Late Stage #LymeDisease around 2014. I've probably had it my entire life. It lies dormant in your body for many years waiting to rear its ugly head.…
9 yrs ago it activated in me.
Like many Lymies I struggled getting my Dr to believe me and this complicated disease. He refused to listen, denied the existence of it and eventually kicked me out of his practice of which I had been a patient 14ish yrs
The mockery of patients is real.

Gemmotherapy is a branch of phytotherapy. The name is derived from the Latin "gemmae", which means bud, gem or jewel.1/
Embryological tissues of plants are used to promote tissue regeneration, organ support, and facilitate deep yet gentle detox by directing toxins towards the organs of elimination.2/
Dr. Pol Henry, a Belgian homeopath conducted series of research studies on the properties of plant buds. His clinical findings were published and he gave this therapeutic approach the name "Phytothembryotherapie".3/

Dann brauchen wir halt mehr Studien!

In Bayern möchte man mit Steuergeldern erforschen, ob Homöopathie bei bakteriellen Infektionen den Verbrauch von Antibiotika senken kann.
Damit reiht man sich in einen Chor ein, der beständig Mittel zur Untersuchung der Homöopathie fordert. Der Forschungsbedarf wird mit einer „nicht eindeutigen Studienlage“ begründet.
Allerdings ist dieses Argument eher Ausdruck eines fehlenden Verständnisses der Grundlagen als sinnvolle Begründung für die Freigabe von Forschungsgeldern. Warum? Jetzt wird es etwas knifflig!

A #homeopathegg #tweetorial:
It’s Easter again, and for reasons that remain unclear to me, millions of people are spending time and money turning eggs different colors. I’m going to dye some eggs, too…but this year, I’m going to try something different--using #homeopathy. 1/X
Many people think homeopathy is a synonym for “natural." It’s not. Homeopathy is a system of "medicine," developed in the early 1800’s by Samuel Hahnemann, a German physician who had stopped practicing medicine because he felt that he was often doing more harm than good. 2/X
And because he lived during a time when we had very little understanding of what caused diseases or how to treat them, he was probably right. But Sam's hiatus from medicine didn't last long. One day he read about the use of cinchona in the treatment of malaria. 3/X

Allez, ça fait longtemps que j'ai rien posé ici.

Je vais parler d'homéopathie. #Thread #FakeMed #Homeopathy
J'ai toujours été fasciné par les très grands nombres. Et il faut bien reconnaître que l'homéopathie, à ce niveau, c'est pas mal.
Si vous prenez un petit granule d'Arnica 9CH, le "9CH" signifie "dilué 9 fois à la centésimale Hahnemannienne".
Une dilution d'1CH, on part du produit de départ, on en prend une petite quantité (disons Q) et on la place dans un récipient, qu'on complète avec 99Q d'eau.
On a donc une concentration 100 fois moins grande. Jusque là c'est facile.
Là, la question logique, c'est "Donc une dilution 9CH, on a dilué 900 fois c'est ça? C'est vrai que c'est beaucoup, 900 fois."
La réaction logique quand on est encore innocent. 😇

How homeopaths believe #homeopathy can help with antimicrobial resistance:…

More written evidence from homeopaths.

This has to be the clincher, surely... them are mightily potent homeopathic words...…
Predictably, the College of Medicine pushes quackery in its response on antimicrobial resistance:…

Monday, first topic: the journey to #scicomm.
There are plenty of ways to be involved in scicomm, as shown by the variety of hosts for this account.
I’ll discuss how I went from research to #scicomm, but I am curious about you.
What is your primary occupation?
If #scicomm is your primary occupation, which background do you have ?
If research is your primary occupation, what kind of #scicomm/outreach are you mostly involved in?
