• A Pharmacy That Won’t Sell Pseudoscience

    Usually, pharmacies sell real medicine and pseudoscience altogether.

    Well, at least Farmacia Rialto, in Spain, has principles:

    ABOUT HOMEOPATHY AND OTHER NON SCIENTIFICAL THERAPIES

    This quality of service prevents us from recommending the therapeutical use of pseudomedicines like homeopathy, flowers of Bach, oligotherapy and all those which have not proven scientifically their efficacy regarding the treatment, prevention and diagnosis of diseases.

    About these therapies and as medicine specialists, we would like to explain you that:

    • Homeopathy is not a therapy with scientific studies endorsing the results in the treatment and prevention of diseases in adults, kids or animals.
    • The content of the homeopathic remedies consists almost completely of water and sugar, with no active component.
    • If you have any important disease or any disease you are trying to cure, you will not get any improvement with these treatments. Ask a doctor practicing scientifical medicine.
    • Almost no homeopathic remedy has an official sanitary license that permits its trade as any other medicament has. Therefore, the sale of most homeopathic remedies is illegal.
    Because of these and many other reasons, Farmacia Rialto does not recommend you to use this kind of false therapies.
    We can give you more detailed information for you to learn more and to solve your doubts about these therapies.

    I wish more and more pharamcies followed Rialto’s lead!

    • The word “pharmakon” meant both the disease and its cure to the ancient Greeks. The word is paradoxical, translated as ‘drug’ and meaning both ‘remedy’ and ‘poison’. This is still the same today – we refer to both effective medicines and to toxic substances as ‘drugs’

    • Homoeopathic Pharmacopoeia of India (9 volumes) has documented 4400 drugs. India also recognises British Homoeopathic Pharmacopoeia, Homoeopathic Pharmacopoeia of United States and German Homoeopathic Pharmacopoeia.
