Yes, homeopathy is a scam. It's complete nonsense. Medical science does not endorse this method of treatment. If anyone does actually feel better after undergoing a homeopathic treatment, then it's probably the placebo effect at work.
I never had homeopathic experience myself but have several friends who have told me of successful cures with homeopaths. In fact, some of them had homeopaths as family doctors all their lives and they would not consider going to other kinds of practitioners.
People can have successful cures with homeopathy since a large part of health is perceptual cure.I never had homeopathic experience myself but have several friends who have told me of successful cures with homeopaths.

Um, you're all going against something you've never tried. This is the problem with people who are "rational", they listen and agree with scientists, without even having their own experience. Gullible, more like. I'm sorry but I really don't have respect for anyone who reads an article and knocks off a whole system that actually works- yes, I've tried it. Whatever it is, it works.

I think homeopathy - the treatment of disease by minute doses of natural substances - is like any other medicine. It can work well or not at all. Unfortunately, this field of medicine needs more regulation. So, the practitioners might truly help you or not.
I have dabbled in taking homeopathic medications for colds and other minor diseases. I have found that they usually speed the process of healing along and you get better a bit earlier. What I have NOT done is use this type of medicine for any series condition.
What's interesting about homeopathy is that it has been around for a very long time and it still peaks a lot of people's interest. While I believe in eating plenty of natural foods like fruit, nuts, vegetables, whole grains and things like this that are known to be good for us, along with certain herbal supplements; there are things involved with homeopathy that I just can't wrap my head around.
As a science guy, I have never found any credible results of homeopathic treatments. Clever marketing, poor education and paranoia are what keeps the homeopathic industry afloat. I do like to discount any methods claiming to improve health because sometimes there is a kernel of truth hidden deeply in the myth. When it comes to homeopathy, however, it has been scientifically scrutinized and there just hasn't been anything to grasp onto and say - that might actually work. It is interesting to browse the websites claiming this as a good thing - they use terms like medically proven yet they don't offer up the where and how.
Alternative medicines and treatments are not all snake oil, but in this case I have to agree that homeopathy is just an illusion.
Before I was into healthy living homeopathy sounded like something kind of hooky but now I'm convinced of it's validity since I've tried if myself. There have been times when I've been I've been really tired and just breathed in some teatree oil and it perked me up soon after and I had more energy. And certain scents can really improve my mood.
