NEMA: Homeopathic remedies...coming up....

SPOT: For 15 years, the National Emergency Medicine Association has worked against stroke, heart disease and trauma. Join the effort, call 800-332-6362.

NEMA: We're talking about homeopathic medicines with pharmacist and holistic practitioner Brian Sanderoff...

SANDEROFF: One of the laws is "like cures like". And what that means, basically, is that if you have, say, poison ivy...the actual remedy for poison ivy would come from the poison ivy plant, but in such a dilute amount, that instead of causing a problem, it would spark the body's own defenses to fix the problem.

NEMA: But hard core scientists say it can't work because there's no active ingredient left in the highly dilute medication...

SANDEROFF: ...which is true. However, the response you get from the body shows that something is going on there...whether it's working on an energetic or a vibrational level, we don't know.

NEMA: But Sanderoff says there are indications homeopathic remedies will be proven effective...

SANDEROFF: ...and there are actually some really good studies going on now - showing some great results. And I'm talking about the kind of studies that western practitioners like to see...those controlled, double blind studies.

NEMA: I'm Steve Girard at The Heart of the Matter.
