Thread: Why does Homeopathy seem to irk skeptics the most?

    Who is keeping this topic alive?

    As regarding the question posed by the title of this thread: I really do not believe it is fair to describe as "skeptici[sm]" that doubt which attaches to most (reasonable) people's view of unproven therapies. (And one uses the word, "therapies," rather loosely here.)

    If homeopathy's acolytes will submit its touted "cures" to the usual double-blind testing, then we will be getting somewhere...

    I have no problem with homeopathy. I know a couple of them. I've even used them to a greater degree of success than a medical doctor. Medical doctors want to give you the 'cure' right this minute which means they take care of your symptom ignoring what the cause of the problem is. A homeopathist goes to the root of the problem and treats THAT. Yeah. It takes longer. Sometimes as long as 3 to 6 months before you see some REAL results. But that's okay. I prefer that course of treatment, that is, treating the cause and not the symptom.

    Oh please!

    Really? OK, now is your opportunity explain exactly how a homeopath goes to the root of the problem and what the treatment process is. Feel free to use your own experience as an illustration.

    So what you're saying is that you drink water for 3 to 6 months until the condition naturally goes away and then you think it was the magical water that cured you? HAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

    lol

    Yeah, homeopathy works. Even though not a single study supports the notion.

    Drink water people, it cures everything.

    The multiple BILLIONS of dollars homeopathy generates per year suggests it does.

    Billions? Only where it is subsidised - definition of how to go broke - open an homeopathy practice in Australia

    Medicare fraud amounts to about $60 billion a year.

    In my humble opinion, that's not a useful contribution to health care at all. A profitable scam is still a scam that shouldn't be supported by anyone.

    To be fair, to a slight extent homeopathy keeps Dr's surgeries clear of the worried well who would otherwise be clogging the system with their imagined illnesses.
