Yesterday while watching "THE DOCTORS" show on TV,i was taken aback by one of the four panelist (all MD),stating that he uses Homeopathic medicine for children for cold symptoms and found it effective.I gathered that it was a combination homeopathic cold remedy as he mentioned the name of the company which sells its medication throughout USA.He also showed a number of Homeopathic medicine medicine which was on the counter for display; Another member of the panel agreed but one of them stated that it should be used with great caution.
Today while visiting a very popular Supermarket i found in the shelf ZINC cold remedy with the caption HOMEOPATHIC.This caught my attention and i glanced through the ingredients and noted that it had ZINCUM GLUSOMINE mentioned as Homeopathic.
This remedy is not Homeopathic,in the sense that the ZINC is not mentioned as to what potency was utilized.In its absence how can it be called homeopathic?
Another Cold remedy in the market is ZAICAM also advertised as homeopathic remedy.
From what has been stated above,i do feel happy that Homeopathy is being recognized by MD for its effectiveness,but very difficult to embrace it with open arms.How ever it augurs well that homeopathy is winning, slowly but surely.
