With all the fuss in the newspapers right now, anyone would think this is a pro-homeopathy page. In fact it is very weak and explains homeopathy very poorly. The word potency is never used, to describe the various potencies of homeopathic medicines, i.e. 6c, 30c, 200c. Homeopathic medicines are not made using only water but also alcohol as a preservative. No attempt is made to explain the fact that the signature of the substance is imprinted on the alcohol/water mixture during the dilution/succussion process of making a remedy and carried through to each subsequent potency. Discussing homeopathic treatment with your GP. Only a miniscule minority of GPs have any knowledge of it. 'Many homeopathic remedies are so diluted that they contain no substances that are unsafe, or that may interfere with other medicines. But some homeopathic remedies may contain substances that are not safe to take with other medicines that you are already taking.' (This is a contradiction and not true as homeopathic medicines do not interfere with pharmaceutical medicine but pharma medicine blocks the action of homeopathy as it is suppresses symptoms, whereas homeopathic medicine works to eliminate the symptoms.) Only negative 'Evidence' is cited at the end of this article. The 'Evidence' is the fact that millions around the world are cured using homeopathy and in India alone there are up to half a million homeopathic doctors, according to one Dr. Brian Kaplan's website, as well as reports from India. If this was placebo, why would they bother to train?
