The truth about homeopathy!Submitted by Séamusín on Mon, 03/10/2014 - 08:58
I was once a believer.
This is not a defense of the ultra corrupt "big pharma" or an attack on alternative medicine. This is merely an attempt to unveil the truth about ONE brand of quack science.
Its true, I am not making it up. I was once a believer in homeopathic remedies. Then I was told I had never done any research. After I got really defensive, and claimed that the other person was wrong and that he didn't know what he was talking about(he was right, I had no idea what homeopathy was), I went and looked it up.
I am a huge advocate of alternative medicine, herbal remedies and using nutrition for healthcare instead of pharmaceutical treatments, however; that being said, homeopathy is pseudoscience.
There is plenty more you can find for yourself on the subject, but this video is adequate for a start.
I want to reiterate, I am a passionate believer in herbalism, holistic medicine, the power of prayer, meditation, and diet and the way they affect health.
Homeopathy is a scam:
They have a sleeping pill where the active ingredient is caffeine diluted to the point where it is literally(and scientifically proven to be) undetectable.
Apparently the vibrations of the caffeine molecules stay in the solution(which is just water) and that's how the medicine treats the symptoms. Its called water memory.
Nothing in physics or chemistry substantiates any of this theory, that was produced in 1796, an era where science and medicine hardly intersected.
Don't look at the web. Study physics, chemistry, and then read Samuel Hahnemann's own works and come to your own conclusions.
