I appreciate the current scientific research does not recognise any effect greater than placebo but this does not explain why it works on babies and animals. I was surprised at how efficient the teething pills worked on a 6th month old baby, and our cat who, as the conventional vet said, had 'untreatable congunctivitis' was healed within 3 days of being treated with homeopathic medicine. Until someone can explain why it does work in these cases when placebo can't possibly be the cause then i see no reason why it wouldn't work.
