Myths about homeopathy 6:
"Homeopathy contradicts the known laws of science"
This is another myth which depends on believing that the only scientific laws which matter are those of chemistry. In fact it is modern conventional medicine (based on the idea that everything about us can be explained by chemistry and biology), which attempts to contradict the known laws of science.
Our knowledge of biology has revealed that living organisms (like us) are homeostatic. This means that they make sure that their internal environment is maintained within a range of "normal" limits, controlling the pressure of blood in different parts of the body, the temperature of the body, and the rate of different processes in the body. Any change which takes the body outside these limits is met by balancing changes to bring it back to normal. Obvious examples include sweating in order to cool down, shivering to get warm, increasing the heart rate to supply more oxygen to muscles when running, increasing acid production in the stomach in order to digest food, and so on.
In illness the same process takes place: the fever in 'flu kills the virus infecting the body; white blood cells are delivered to cuts to deal with infection; and vomiting and diarrhea expel poisoned food. Sometimes it is not possible for the body to return to a normal state, and symptoms persist as a chronic illness. The laws of homeostasis indicate that the correct way to treat such an illness is to stimulate the body's reactions against the symptoms, which is what homeopathy does. Conventional medicine, however, attempts to stop the symptoms directly, and the result is that the body reacts against the drug, producing side effects and sometimes rebound effects. The nature of natural laws is that you ignore them at your peril.
