  • Good one Alan! Here’s another thing they say in response to “Homeopathy works on babies and animals”: “They’re responding to the CARE, not the remedy!” which is so stupid because the “care” is never-ending! Parents are insufferably doting! So why did they get sick in the first place? Plus, animals are actually AGGRAVATED by “care”! Where is your cat when she’s sick? Under the bed, right? Just TRY getting her out! Where is the dog? In the closet!

  • Hahaha, good point. I’ve seen “studies” which claim the effects of remedies are from the relationship that homeopaths build with their patients. Well, we certainly have a more empathic bond, but that’s not what’s curing deep seated chronic illnesses.

  • Dear,

    The skeptics are saying that since Homeopathy remedies are high diluted substances with ‘nothing in it’ after the process of dilution beyond Avogardro’s number, it can’t be that the Homeopathy medicines cured the patients but it’s either one of these:
    1)Placebo effect
    2)Spontaneous regression of the disease
    3)Observer bias
    4)Wrong diagnosis

    There is currently a very insidious and vociferous campaign worldwide especially in the UK and US to condemn Homeopathy. They are using the mainstream media and education system in all countries. University students are being taught that Homeopathy is quackery.
    They have succeeded in banning NHS funding and closing down some Homeopathy hospitals in the UK and this is snowballing to countries all over the world.

    We have to strike back hard or they will eventually get Homeopathy banned across the globe.
