Thoughts on the world, homeopathy, mindfulness and food...
A collection of blog posts - feel free to respond with your thoughts and comments - I love to have feedback - thank you!
I keep seeing it referenced. ChatGTP will see you now for your scan. ChatGTP does something else. Will it transform healthcare? So I went to investigate and find out more about what it actually is. Chat GTP's own definition (I asked) is:
'Chat GPT is a conversational artificial intelligence (AI) model developed by OpenAI. It is a language model that uses deep learning algorithms to understand natural language and generate human-like responses to text-based conversations. Chat GPT is capable of engaging in a wide range of conversations and can be trained to understand various contexts, dialects, and languages. This technology has been used in chatbots, virtual assistants, and customer service applications to provide automated support and communication with users.'
And in case you weren't aware (I wasn't), the name "ChatGPT" combines "Chat", referring to its chatbot functionality, and "GPT", which stands for Generative Pre-trained Transformer.
I went on to enquire about downsides and tech impact on the human brain and world around us and got a well worded, interesting and balanced reply.
After our Wikipedia (locked so only certain people can edit the page, and pretty hostile towards homeopaths - this blog is worth a read of the comparisons of Wiki in 2003 and now) experiences around homeopathy, I thought today I'd ask for a Chat GTP opinion.
Here we go:
Me: Tell me more about homeopathy?
ChatGTP: Homeopathy is a holistic system of medicine that uses highly diluted substances to stimulate the body's natural healing abilities. It was developed by German physician Samuel Hahnemann in the late 18th century, and it is based on the principle of "like cures like." This means that a substance that causes symptoms in a healthy person can be used to treat similar symptoms in a sick person.
Homeopathic remedies are made from natural substances such as plants, minerals, and animal products. They are prepared through a process called potentization, which involves diluting the substance in water or alcohol and then shaking it vigorously.
Homeopathic remedies are believed to work by stimulating the body's vital force, which is the energy that maintains health and well-being. By addressing the underlying imbalance in the body, homeopathy can help alleviate a wide range of physical, emotional, and mental symptoms.
Some of the key principles of homeopathy include:
So there you go. I was surprised, pleasantly so.
After all that talk of AI, I thought I'd share a pic of yesterday's swim location. Gorgeous start to the weekend.
I'm a Homeopath working in the Skipton (North Yorkshire) area. I am also able to offer food intolerance testing using Kinesiology and advice around diet and lifestyle.
