Do you believe that homeopathy works?


Do you believe that the energy in homeopathic remedies helps to cure many ailments, or do you think that the remedies are so weak that they couldn't possibly do anything?

    Hmm, so far it hasn't worked for me or my daughter either. But I'd really like it to be something that works. I guess I have to know how long it should take to work, maybe I didn't wait long enough...

    Hmm, I'm glad your friend had success in curing her skin problem, but I often wonder if something that took as long as a year to cure (with homeopathy, or any other similar treatment), would have just got better anyway?

    I want to believe that this works, as it's lovely to consider that there is this therapy that may cure disease with no horrible side effects, but your middle paragraph outlines my concerns. It's exactly these thoughts that make me have doubts.

    No. It works for people who believe it will. Normally, that would not be a problem, but when something serious comes up that a placebo WON'T cure, you have Homeopaths convincing people that real medicine doesn't work. Homeopathy can kill.

    The biggest problem with that is that the 'real doctors' are utterly unable to do anything outside of the box, because they could be sued to death if they did. So they stock their protocols, no matter if they are good or not.

    I guess that is the main problem with it, it is just very hard to explain how something that shouldn't be in there any more can have any effect. But as you say, it works anyhow, and that's what matters!

    Wishing warts away doesn't help, I tried. But some people can make them go away, even though you do not know anything about what they do, it happened to me.

    The number of reports of recovery confirm your statement. Finding the homeopathic physician who has experience and understands the patient will make all the difference.

    It's not merely opinion that homeopathy is bogus. It has been proven in many double-blind studies. I'll take proven medicine over magic beans any day.

    Not only does the substance get diluted and reduced in size; it must be potentized to release the energetic qualities and essence of the substance.

    Well, the proof still is in the pudding. If it does the job and helps, then it is valid and it really doesn't matter what you call it. Placebos are highly effective and the fact that we have them in us doesn't invalidate this.

    Of course homeopathy has no side effects - it has no effects, period!

    I've written that before, so just for the record: if you have the correct remedy for the job, the effect is very often instantaneous. No waiting required!
