August 16, 2009 by Louise Mclean
FACT 1: Hippocrates The Father of Medicine of Ancient Greece said
there were two Laws of Healing: The Law of Opposites and the Law of
Similars. Homeopathy treats the patient with medicines using the Law
of Similars, while orthodox medicine uses the Law of Opposites, e.g.
antibiotics, anti-inflammatories, anti-convulsants,
anti-hypertensives, anti-depressants, anti-psychotics etc.

The meta-analysis at the centre of the controversy is based on 110
placebo-controlled clinical trials of homeopathy and 110 clinical
trials of allopathy (conventional medicine), which are said to be
matched. These were reduced to 21 trials of homeopathy and 9 of
conventional medicine of higher quality and further reduced to 8 and
6 trials, respectively, which were larger, higher quality. The final
analysis which concluded that the clinical effects of homoeopathy are

clinical trials of homeopathy. The Lancets press release did not
mention this, instead giving the impression that the conclusions were
based on all 110 trials.
