Default homeopathy DOESN'T WORK

I just though I would make a case against the use of homeopathy. Homeopathy is widely understood not to work in any medical context, and this has been consistently proven using scientific studies which prove no correlation between the use of homeopathic remedies and positive health effects, let alone cure of ailments.

It is very fashionable, as are most "alternative" "medicines" (not a typo)

I'm not suggesting that concentrated medicine diluted with water is homeopathic. Many helpful medicines are.

If you use homeopathic remedies you are wasting money and failing your pet, this is the only reason I adress this problem.

Please do some research from independant sources before using such methods, your dog will suffer from your delusions if you choose not to.

As a mom of 5 kids I have found some homeopathic treatments to be very useful. Example?? Apparently you have had a bad experience??

I'm sorry but that's impossible. You may be looking for improvements in (behaviour?) and are therefore finding them. There is evidence that all placebos help with a variety of problems, especially sleep issues. A sugar pill has shown such effects.

The problem is, pets cannot be informed they are ingesting something that will help them, so even the placebo effect is lost on them. I have known people who have attempted to treat gum problems with their dog, and was told it "wasn't scientific, but still worked" and had to watch the dog suffer for weeks due to it's owners weird obsession with "natural remedies" which DO. NOT. WORK. Until they took it to the vet who thankfully cured it in a day.

I used homeopathic tablets for my daughter who had colic, at 3 months old...they helped alot. She wasn't old enough to be "TOLD" anything...she's 15 now....I would never deny medical treatment for a child or pet, just feel homeopathy does have a place in the world....

I guess we may be disagreeing on what homeopathy is, the "water has a memory and gets stronger when diluted" is the one I'm attacking here, and it is certainly a fraudulent industry, as has been unanimously proven.

I'm guessing such low doses would go unnoticed in a 3 month old anyway, you wouldn't be able to judge whether the child simply got better despite the tablets.

disagreeing has nothing to do with you being a dum...fill in the blank

I am a nurse and can definately say homeopathic remedies DO work in some cases. Now will it cure every disease and make everyone feel better of course not. However more and more alternative treatments are being studied AND utilized in the health care field and with SUCCESS. I am sorry if you had a bad experience with homeopathics and have seen some awful things happen in the name of holistic medicine....but just as bad things happen in the name of science as well.
