calling all homeopaths for alcoholism help

is it okay to give acid sulph 30 safely and without his knowledge to someone who has alcohol addiction?
will it cause any side effects? just one glass of alcohol or even a beer makes him kind of delirious :)
want to wean him from this habit safely and without his knowledge
Also i dont want to use anything harsh or would cause a wrong reaction.
thankyou so much

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
I don't believe it is ethical to treat anyone without their knowledge or permission. Even more importantly, without taking a proper case it isn't possible to know if the remedy is correct, and incorrectly prescribed medicines can have side-effects.

You have to ask yourself, how would you feel, if you were given a medicine without your knowledge, that then damaged your health in some way? Do you think that person would ever trust you again?

Addiction is serious and complex, it is not possible to cure it without full co-operation of the person. Even with homoeopathic medicines the person needs to make a number of conscious decisions about their life.

the person would never comply or agree that he has addiction. We just want to help him, because in spite of repeated asking for years he wouldnt agree that he has addiction. He is also a big smoker.
we are concerned about his health and
dont want to give him anything unnatural/strong that is why we thought of using homeopathy.
please help with any treatment.
thanks

This is what Hahnemann said on the issue:




In mental and emotional diseases resulting from corporeal maladies, which can only be cured by homoeopathic antipsoric medicine conjoined with carefully regulated mode of life, an appropriate psychical behavior towards the patient on the part of those about him and of the physician must be scrupulously observed, by way of an auxiliary mental regimen. To furious mania we must oppose clam intrepidity and cool, firm resolution - to doleful, querulous lamentation, a mute display of commiseration in looks and gestures - to senseless chattering, a silence not wholly inattentive - to disgusting and abominable conduct and to conversation of a similar character, total inattention. We must merely endeavor to prevent the destruction and injury of surrounding objects, without reproaching the patient for his acts, and everything must be arranged in such a way that the necessity for any corporeal punishments and tortures1 whatever may be avoided. This is so much the more easily effected, because in the administration of the medicine - the only circumstance in which the employment of coercion could be justified - in the homoeopathic system the small doses of the appropriate medicine never offend the taste, and may consequently be given to the patient without his knowledge in his drink, so that all compulsion is unnecessary.

There is no remedy that treats 'addiction'. A remedy corrects the whole person. If you identify the right remedy for him, then you could suggest it for his general health.

Hahnemann was referring to the insane, not to those with more 'normal' problems (although I suppose we are all on a sliding scale of sanity).

When someone is unable to make decisions for themselves, such as a child, someone who is unconscious or a person who is insane, then of course someone else must take responsibility.

Homoeopathy is not side-effect free. There can be aggravations, proving symptoms, and other effects from them. This is why someone must give permission to be treated. Again I ask you would you feel safe having medicine secretly put into your drinks, especially when you might get side effects from them?

Every person who still has some rationality left has a right to make a decision about their medical treatment. Taking that away from someone is not right.

This is my opinion of course and in the end you must listen to your own moral compass.

Though I don't dose people in practice, I'm saying that there may be situations where letting someone remain uncured may also be unethical.

Regarding addictions, there are cases where a patient correctly cured of the miasms gives up an addiction without any other prompting. In those cases the patients were driven to their addiction to escape the effect of the miasms, and when the symptoms are cured, they no longer need the escape.
