How does homeopathy work?
« on: 19/03/2014 01:30:01 »
Marlene Sharpe asked the Naked Scientists:
   
Whilst some medics still sneer at homeopathy others are amazed at how well it works and now they use this and / or study this method.

Animals and babies do not have placebo effects and respond well.

Can you explain how a well-chosen homeopathic remedy can work .

That the patients did not comprehend they were being given [sham] medicine is irrelevant,
if they got better that recovery would have happened anyway even without the application of what amounts to holy-water.
