13 Benefits of Homeopathy

There are many benefits of homeopathic medicine, including:

1. It can be used by pregnant and nursing women;

2. It can be used by children and infants;

3. It does not interfere with medications taken by a person;

4. If an incorrect remedy is selected, it is completely safe and will not harm the person at all;

5. Other than occasional, mild, and short-lived symptom aggravations which pass quickly and tend to be followed by improvements in the symptoms of a person, there are no side-effects of homeopathic remedies.  This symptom aggravation is actually regarded by homeopaths as a sign that the correct homeopathic remedy has been selected and usually results in symptom improvements;

6. It can be used for chronic or acute conditions;

7. It is an individualized system of medicine which treats the person, not merely the symptoms.  The symptoms, however, are addressed when using this approach and are typically improved;

8. Homeopathy is a holistic approach to healing:  one that involves the body, mind, emotions, and spirit of the person being treated;

9. Homeopathic remedies are readily available and can, therefore, be used by anyone;

10. Homeopathic remedies are typically inexpensive and therefore provide an affordable approach to healing;

11. Homeopathic remedies can be stored for long periods of time;

12. Homeopathic medicine is non-invasive; and

13. There are many studies proving the effectiveness of homeopathy, when used correctly.

The distractors of Homeopathy are either ignorant of the subject matter or practitioners who have vested interests in remaining in their (allopathic) comfort zones - or are downright stupid.
I have grown weary of debating with those that do not wish to learn or consider new ways of doing things. And, rather unkindly to some perhaps, I adopt the attitude of "don't fight with pigs - you'll both get dirty and the pigs love it" (apologies to pigs that are actually amazing animals + can be great pets) and then, the other day, I came across this most agreeable quote:
"Instead of proving the skeptics wrong,
delight the true believers".

If homeopathy is so false and simply has a placebo effect, why does it work for my
pets? I have treated 4 dogs and 3 cats with homeopathy with an excellent effect, explain
that please, because animals do not know what is a placebo, antibiotic, etc!!

I've found this great new medicine. They're called SUGAR PILLS... they have the same benefits as homeopathy but with even less side effects!

Point by point down the list.

1.) Homeopathic treatments are diluted to the point where there is almost certainly nothing left of the original substance in the dose consumed. So point one is true, it's safe for anyone, because homeopathy has no physiological effects on the human body, good or bad, beyond the effect of drinking water, or the effects of whatever gel filler the pills are made of.
2-4.) Correct, see 1.
5.) If it's properly homeopathic, there are no side effects, and no primary effects.
6.) It can be used for anything. It will not, however, have any effect on any condition beyond a similarly administered placebo.
7.) While it can be individualized, it doesn't matter if it is or not, as it has no effect on the human body.
8.) Complete bollocks. Homeopathy involves a quack fleecing a victim, and nothing more.
9.) Technically true, but see 1.
10.) Homeopathic "treatments" are often more expensive than real medicine.
11.) True. Water can be stored indefinitely.
12.) I suppose it is non-invasive. So is drinking a glass of water. The effect of both will be identical.
13.) And yet, you provided no citations to any studies supporting homeopathy. This is probably because proper scientific, peer reviewed studies have never shown that homeopathic "treatments" have any effect beyond a placebo.
