I guess you all maintain the details of your daily expenditure. On regular basis, we spend a lot for cosmetics, sun creams, fairness creams, baby oils, massage oils, antiseptic creams, talcum powders, soaps, toothpastes, hair oils, hair gels, perfumes, etc. manufactured by the multinational companies. Most of these items are used even by the classical Homeopaths among us (at least the soaps and toothpastes).
Have you noticed that a major portion of our money goes to these multinationals that are actually working against our system, indirectly by funding the skeptics behind the “studies” and media reports against Homeopathy.
So friends, this is the high time to decide whether to waste our money for this purpose or not. The best alternative is to use the above mentioned products manufactured by the Homeopathic pharmacies. Please remember one thing that the production of Dilutions is not profitable for the companies, because, if we purchase one 30 ml of a dilution, we can use it for a long time, for hundreds of patients!
So, it is our duty to support the Homeopathic pharmacies by at least using their common products. Need not use the patents and combinations (even I do not use it), but at least stop using the harmful products made by the multinationals and use our own products that are relatively safe. I do not suggest any specific product from a particular pharmacy; hence the choice is left to you depending up on the quality, reliability and availability in each area.
Friends, please remember that this move can also help our local homeopathic shops. If they get good turnover, they will be in a position to provide all dilutions in various potencies. How can we expect them to do the same without our support?
I do not say that we must suggest homeopathic products to our patients, but at least use the same for our own family.
Legal disclaimer: This is not to promote the sale of specific Homeopathic products, but to support the Homeopathic industry and the local homeopathic outlets.
