As there is no evidence, it will not.

    Plenty of herbal and vitamin preparations are used by conventional medicine. Why?, because there is some evidence that they work. Those that have none, are not.
    Like Ginger for nausea - many are now recommending it to pregnant women. However you have to warn them not to have too much and I am unsure of why - whether they are afraid the kids will come out with red hair.................

    That reminds me of poor Janeza Podgoršek.

    The indictment by state prosecutor Francka Slivnik accuses Eržen of breaking the health code, when she advised homeopathic drops as a prophylactic against malaria to Janeza Podgoršek in 1996 before a trip to Africa. This is in opposition to valid medical doctrine. Podgoršek fell ill with malaria upon return from Africa and later died.
    Seriously, guys, what are you getting so irked about?

    Way, way more people die from prescription drugs and over-the-counter drugs. How many times have you blogged about that? Or do you just focus on isolated incidences?

    And if more people relied on homoeopathy for anything but "feel good claptrap" more WOULD die from it

    Since we're using (*)(*)(*)(*)ty maths prescription drugs and over the counter drugs save more lives than homeopathy and thus 100% proves that modern medicine is superior.
