Homeopathy: taking "less is more" waaaay too literally.

Nobody can cure cancer. Even modern medicines can only cut it out or try to poison it out of your system. Then they can only watch and hope it doesn't return after that.

Homeopathy is a hold over from when there were no doctors and humanity was self medicating on plants, etc. At that time we couldn't get a balanced diet and developed certain diseases because of it. In this age most of us can get a Balanced and Varied diet which would eliminate the need for Homeopathy and a lot of Pharmaceutical medicines also. We need to eat our way out of minor everyday illnesses not constantly take a pill for it. Our body is the best healer ever created. All it mostly needs is the right nutrients from what we eat.

are the works of three Nobel Laureate scientists that have done studies on high dilutions( similar to Homeopathic) and have proven their effects included in this video? Looking at the comments, I doubt it was.

1. Hans Von Euler -

2. Brian David Josephson -

3. Luc Montagnier -

haven t read them, and i suppose you didn t either, but you said similar to homeopathy, not the same. Homeopathy is based on water remembering the structure of what you have diluited in it, if it still had some particles inside it may work at a lower level, but have my doubts that some "magic" water would cure something besides placedo

@Lena The FDA oversees homeopathic remedies. But it doesn’t check to see if they’re safe or effective. In general, most are so watered down that they don’t cause any side effects. But there are exceptions. Homeopathic medicines can contain a large amount of an active ingredient, like a heavy metal, that can be dangerous. I think it's called the placebo effect. 🙂

This is so strange. Every other year I develop tonsillitis. When I was little I had it every year and it always was severe. Now when I'm an adult, whenever I started feeling it coming, I would buy dozens of all kinds of non homeopathic medicine and only some had little affect, most of the time nothing. On few occasions I had tonsillitis that lasted weeks and I had to turn to antibiotics. Few years ago the pharmacist offered me these new homeopathic pills to treat tonsillitis. I heard about homeopathy before, but not enough to have my own opinion. I didn't look at it as good or bad, and didn't expected any kind of results. I just gave it a try like so many other medicines before. And just in one day or so, my tonsillitis was completely gone. Completely. Next year I had tonsillitis again and again I took the pills - boom! gone in overnight. This year I had it again, and again the pills worked. Why? Why so many others that I took before throughout my life had basically no effect, but suddenly these homeopathic ones work. Placebo? It's crazy.

Homeopathy is good as it shows care to diseased ppl but it is wrong when it is
taken as a substitute for proven treatment which is modern medicine..
Paaasto - преди 10 дни
As a med student I really thank you guys for opening up the conversation about alternative medicine and taking down some miths. Our western medicine has proven to be really effective treating deseases but not that much at answering people's concerns abouth their health. And that's when Alternative medicine enters the game, they give people the calm and the security they need in order to keep going, in those kind of sistems people feel embraced they feel like they're important, like others care about what's going on with them.
We're failing at providing a full and integral treatment to those people, that's why other forms of medicine are so important because they cover up the blank spaces we leave. Of course, if you suffer an horrible accident and end up with several bleedings you'll go to an hospital but if you just need to cure a stressfull headache who says reiki is a bad idea?

"Placebo effect is real." No kidding, American ER: 3hrs waiting, +6hrs until seeing a physician, +6 more until blood work returns, +6 more until any diagnosis, +10 or more until discharge or admittance. Might as well just stay home and fool yourself with sugar water. That's the value proposition of homeopathy, which is sad.

"Faith can move mountains" isn't a literal statement. Of course a mountain won't start moving regardless of how hard you believe it should. What it means is if you believe in what you do, you can achieve anything.

This is very poor on medical side that medical professionals are pulling each others legs instead of holding hands together.
I am a Homoeopathic doctor and I had seen effective results in my cases.
Moreover,I had received all vaccinations in my childhood still I suffered from measles twice so do not criticize any medical science this way.Every science has its scopes and limitations.
Widen your horizon.
And by the way modern medicine pharma is far bigger than homeo pharma which is the reason they are creating misbelief and rumours for homoeopathic science and not allowing the science to spread.
Last thing,it's better to have placebo effect than to deteriote the health taking ruthlessly prescribed high dose antibiotics and suffering from its threatening side effects.
Dare to be wise.

@Silent33091 first of all calm yourself.U need help.dnt use these abusive words atleast not in this field.And I had never abused any field for your kind information nor I had blamed MD's for any reason. I am sorry if you could not understand the thing...being a medical professional no one should pull each others legs just on selfish side. And lastly let people decide what is wrong and right for them.all people are not dumb.If they will get the effect(which u will never understand at microscopic level)they will opt for homoeopathy otherwise not. I wish you all the best. You keep serving the patients with antibiotics and allow us to serve with our principles.
Silent33091 - преди 4 дни
"Homoeopathic doctor" did you spend at least 2 months at that diploma mill or did you just do it online? Don't try to put yourself on the same level as real MD's. The misbelief in homeopathy is due to there being no biochemical process by which it could work, no peer reviewed scientific studies published in relevant journals supporting it etc. When you reached the point of being prescribed a high dose of antibiotics you better take that shit because not taking it could result in you dying which is far worse than any potential side effect. "Dare to be wise." More like dare to be dumb you fucking huckster.

thanks for this video, as a researcher it is important to listen to things that sound unscientific, alot of things where uncientific at first and only proven true later. Listening doesn't mean believing but new knowledge should always be obtained not just cementing the older things. but honestly homeopathy i can't even, it is just too hard, i'll just try to not laugh straight in someones face out of respect for different opinions. wait but if people spend money on not working homeopathy then their money can't be spend on developing real medicine that could save future diseases.
