So let's see...

You take homeopathic medicine for condition X. X is cured. Therefore homeopathy works for millions of people!

The Lancet does a study of 220 clinical trials involving around 14,300 people comparing placebos with homeopathy. (A placebo, you may recall, is a sugar pill that does nothing at all.) They conclude that "the clinical effects of homoeopathy are placebo effects". But according to you there's a fatal flaw: those smarty-pants doctors didn't take homeopathic medicine on themselves, so they're NOT QUALIFIED! :shock:

Seriously, how do you explain this? Why does homeopathy suddenly stop "working" when it's subjected to careful analysis by men in white coats?

Ladies and gentlemen, we now have scientific evidence that homeopathy works! I present to you the following Ig Nobel-prize winning research:

MEDICINE PRIZE. Dan Ariely of Duke University (USA), Rebecca L. Waber of MIT (USA), Baba Shiv of Stanford University (USA), and Ziv Carmon of INSEAD (Singapore) for demonstrating that high-priced fake medicine is more effective than low-priced fake medicine.
REFERENCE: "Commercial Features of Placebo and Therapeutic Efficacy," Rebecca L. Waber; Baba Shiv; Ziv Carmon; Dan Ariely, Journal of the American Medical Association, March 5, 2008; 299: 1016-1017.

It's only an argument if there are two "valid" points of view. If one POV is patently wrong and scientifically proven so then it is no longer an argument. Then it's just stupidity and they shouldd buy JP's magic potion as you all believe pigs can fly so you may as well throw your money to someone who will put it to better use. Sounds like a good plan to me.

That's right, and this is known as the placebo effect.

:( Wld really help as am looking to healing my kid's severe eczema.


Hi!!!

I highly recommend Dr Sundradas to you who will guide and and enlighten you further on your child's cause of eczema to treat and prevent further outbreaks. He does a variety of other stuff and i've been to him a few times.

you can check out his website at http://www.naturaltherapies.com/dr%20sundardas.htm.

No worries, his fees are also very reasonable and he is very thorough in finding out the root of your problems. His clinic is located at Bugis, across bugis junction.

Thanks!

if you do not believe in homeopathy just stay off this conversation

this post is a reply to someone for whom it works
what is the point in crticising something that is not acceptable to you

live and let live and be happy in your disbelief but STOP posting irrelvant responses

thanks
