Further documentation is available here. The methods of arriving at complementary variational principles are reviewed and described and the connections between them discussed. While the breadth of application and elements of solid state physics by jp srivastava pdf of the techniques is emphasised, we take the opportunity to present to a wider readership developments of the methods which occurred in transport and particularly thermal conductivity theory.

The renewed and more vigorous attack on the efficacy of homoeopathy as a curative therapy picked up by the media is nothing but a sinister pogrom by the powerful pharmaceutical corporations the world over.
The news and the discussion related to it as quoted from those released at UK a few days back, is only based on a latest flare up of events, a part of a few year long series of organized assault against homoeopathy, was very likely triggered, sponsored and funded by a consortium of allopathic pharmaceutical corporations. The series of events can be traced back to less than a decade. Until then the allopathic and the homoeopathic community including the practitioners and academicians of UK was in close ties for the cause of health care delivery on the private and the NHS frontiers. If one is keen on finding the genesis of the present tirade, one would find reported in Guardian-online, that The Prince of Wales had ordered a leading independent economist to examine whether the use of complementary therapies could save the NHS money. Homoeopathy was one among the priorities. 5bn could be achieved by offering spinal manipulation therapies, such as chiropractic therapy, as a standard NHS option for back pain, according to the Times. GP’s offered homoeopathy as an alternative to standard drugs, according to the paper.
The report was instantly reacted to by the pharmaceutical industry wherein they criticized the Prince. The interesting observation is that Lancet is known to have always upheld the homoeopathic possibilities, treatment and clinical observations with articles in its previous editions, from its very inception. However, Lancet did succeed in confusing its readers with this one. For its article, Lancet is known to have conducted drug trials in Homoeopathy.
But this time the modes of study and the methods used were purely those used for the study of allopathic medicines, well connected to the quantitative aspect of the drug with respect to the clinical diagnosis. The study proves that Homoeopathic medicines are insignificant and carry only a placebo effect. August 27, 2005 edition of the Lancet. They found that they have successfully applied a methodological approach to the articles they reviewed that is highly suitable for drawing conclusions about conventional medicine but is incomplete in evaluating homeopathic medicine. They did not include criteria that would apply to high quality homeopathic research reflecting the nature of homeopathic practice. Furthermore, a single remedy selection for a given conventionally-diagnosed condition is not homoeopathy, yet there are numerous conventionally-judged high quality studies that were so designed. The analogy would be to test the effects of penicillin for all patients with symptoms of an apparent infection.
The quality of the studies would otherwise be excellent in design. How would penicillin fare in a meta-analysis of studies designed to ignore the intrinsic nature of penicillin in benefiting patients, as observed by Dr Iris Bell MD, PhD. Well aware about the different philosophical structure of Homoeopathy, this study was more than deliberate as anyone who know homoeopathy and its phil. One could compare this to attempting to read a French book in English, considering the fact that the alphabets used are the same ! The lancet has also challenged the plausibility of homeopathic effects given that homeopathic remedies are often administered in dilutions in excess of Avogadro’s number. Penn State University commented that the chemistry argument made in this study and by conventional medicine in general is false science. The underpinning of the editorial content of the Lancet as it relates to homeopathy relies on a quaint old idea from the nineteenth century that the only way that the property of water can be affected or changed is by incorporating foreign molecules.

Aberdeen AB25 2ZN, germany Altern Ther Health Med. Men with cancer: is their use of complementary and alternative medicine a response to needs unmet by conventional care? Over study ever performed was done by homoeopaths. I would like to dispel a plethora of myths surrounding homeopathy which have been used to discredit this highly efficacious healing art and science.
