While approximately 10,000 per year die from the effects of illegal drugs, an article in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) reported that an estimated 106,000 hospitalized patients die each year from drugs which, by medical standards, are properly prescribed and properly administered. More than two million suffer serious side effects.

Just to make it clear.. I am no fan of pharma industry either and know there is alot of big issues with our health care system. I have seen myself how pharma industry is corrupted to the core and how they sometimes manipulate studies for their own benefit.

I also believe there are alternative treatments that work better than chemo against for example cancers. So i am not against all alternative treatments.

So many members of the establishment have big tie ins to pharmaceutical companies in many different countries.

The truth is, that even my GP, whose family also happens to own local pharmacy businesses, says that about 85% of the ailments that people take medication for can be fixed with lifestyle changes in diet and exercise, no medication needed at all.

He's more likely to tell you to get off your butt and go to the gym than prescribe you a pill.

Note that distilled water can also be dangerous as it promotes demineralization of the body. All things need moderation and variety one can not rely only on one type of solution or over generalize its benefits...

It is pure H²O.....Water.....The same thing your body is made by up to 70% of..


"When distilled water enters the body, it leaves no residue of any kind. It is free of salts and sodium. It is the most perfect water for the healthy functioning of the kidneys(83% water). It is the perfect liquid for the blood(83% water), the ideal liquid for the efficient functioning of the lungs(86% water), stomach, liver(85% water) and other vital organs. Why? Because it is free of all inorganic minerals. It is so pure that all liquid drug prescriptions are formulated with distilled water. Dr. Paul Bragg, N.D. Ph.T., from his book: "The Shocking Truth About Water"

Yeah because doctors being the 3rd leading cause of death and homeopathy not even being on the radar is insignificant to feeble minds...Sigh!

But what comes out is no pure water hence the demineralization effect and the fact that you can not survive only of distiled water. The other side of the it, is why mineralized water is also good for you. Tap water is only water that is safe to drink, not all is equal, avoid generalizations and absolutes...

Homeopathic medicine is “rubbish” and is nothing more than a placebo, England’s chief medical officer has claimed.


Professor Dame Sally Davies said she was “perpetually surprised” homeopathy was provided on the NHS, and branded homeopaths “peddlers.” Giving evidence to the Commons Science and Technology committee, she also expressed fears about the prescription of homeopathic remedies to treat malaria and other illnesses.

‘I’m very concerned when homeopathic practitioners try to peddle this way of life to prevent malaria or other infectious disease,” she said.

“I am perpetually surprised that homeopathy is available on the NHS.” Dame Sally, who is England’s most senior doctor, concluded by remarking that homeopathy “is rubbish”.

The Telegraph


A 2010 Science and Technology Committee agreed that Homeopathy was no more effective than a placebo, while a UK Lancet study also came to the conclusion that homeopathy was no more effective than the standard sugar pill given as a placebo in clinical trials.

Of course, the established medical community isn't entirely unbiased in this matter.

This is old news.

Homeopathy is bunkum. It cannot possibly do the things it is supposed to do.

And did they take into account how many people are saved by these very same doctors?? Alot more people are treated by conventional medicine/health care, so of course there are more people also dying from it. I kinda doubt there would be less deaths if we shut down the entire health care system.

I would agree that homeopathy may not be in the radar as a cause of death but that is also being disingenuous. How would you go about creating the metrics to verify it ?

I see it as perfectly sensible to attribute a portion of the deaths by refusal of proper treatment to the users of homeopathy amongst other non-standard solutions, but the contrary is also true avoiding standard medical practices may also save lives and promote a better quality of life. I would however doubt that relying only on one of the systems is the perfect option and believe that you can live without homeopathy (and other non-standard solutions) but am less certain how long you can live without any standard medical care (note than most if not all alternative treatments tend to be supplemental not de facto "alternatives").

Are prescription pills? No.

Can you make prescription pills on your own? Of course not.

Can you make Homeopathic remedies? Absolutely....

It's all about the money for Big Pharma; not our health....

Show me one prescription pill that doesn't have any side-effects..

Someone who is known to tell lies....


He had two brothers, James Elton and John Harrison Bragg. His father was employed by the U.S. Printing Office. However, in the 1972 Edition of the Bragg Apple Cider Vinegar System booklet, at page 12, Bragg claimed both that his father was "a splendid farmer" and that "I am the oldest of 16 children".

I do not know the quality of your tap water, but if you are in the states I understand that the quality is very bad, especially in regards to chemical contaminants, even with traces of "medication". I was simply stating that distiled water does not signify purity (it all depends on how it is distiled and packaged) and that prolonged reliance on it is detrimental to your health as you need water soluble mineral contents.

It also depends on how much you can pay for quality water, most of humanity would be extremely grateful to have access to the dirtiest tap water for human consumption provided in the US.

Thats about how I see most of the big pharma meds, except, they're far more dangerous. They have horrific side effects, so she is being as if very amoral, negative entity to voice such a thing. Sorry, had to change it to "as if" because the sin and the sinner are 2 different things.
