Homeopathy — Health or Hoax

How it works

  • The cornerstone principle
    Homeopathy actually derives its name from the Greek, homoeo= ‘similar’, and pathos= ‘suffering’.
    Basically, A substance that can induce particular symptoms in healthy people, can also cure a sick person facing the same symptoms due to any disease, when given in small quantities.
    This might seem similar to how vaccines seem to work; but unlike vaccines where generally weakened germs are injected, homeopathy believed in giving any material that cause similar symptoms, even tho it has absolutely ZERO correlation between it.
  • A Single Remedy
    Another principle is that at a time only one remedy can be given. Otherwise, the response would be unpredictable and ambiguous, they think.
    Considering that those Expensive 💰💰medications need to be taken for a very long time, one cannot say if this is just an 🏧ATM for the “doctors”.
    Also this is given in small dozes to prevent side-effects and maximize its efficacy.
  • Potentization
    The Homeopathic remedies that are made from plants, flowers, minerals, etc. are manufactured unlike anything else. They are diluted to such a massive extent that there are probably only a few hundred molecules of the medications in the entire 30C diluted vile.
    This extreme dilution makes the medication ineffective in all practical sense.
  • Water has Memory 🤯
    Homeopaths use extreme potency as discussed earlier this means there is absolutely NO original molecules (statistically). So, the homeopaths say that water has memory of its source and how it is “brewed” — which is and does sound extremely absurd and surreal.
Think about it — “Water has memory” 😆
  1. …. basically none.

It Still Works
