Homeopathy is quackery. Pseudoscientific quackery. It doesn’t matter if homeopathy cured your great grand mother’s broken knee or your uncle’s asthma. It doesn’t work. It can’t. Their is no legit science to back it up. It does not adhere to the scientific method, and there has been no rigorous testing done to provide any evidence based results.
The underlying principle of homeopathy violates the laws of biology, psychology, physics and chemistry. Quack doctor Samuel Hahnemann founded homeopathy in 1796 with the premise: “like cures like”. A substance that causes a disease in healthy people, can cure the same in sick people, if given in diluted amounts. Diluted with water in such a way that eventually, barely a few molecules of the original substance are left, which is why homeopathic medicines have no side effects. Because they are made up of 99% water or alcohol. There is (almost) nothing in it that could work. (Therefore, nothing in it that could cause any side effects.)
Homeopathy is no more effective than a placebo. Evidence based medicine has come a long way since the 18th century. Hahnemann is probably laughing in his grave for having made a fool out of millions who believed his nonsense and those who are still doing so. Homepathy is a regressive force because it discourages people from using effective treatments.
Despite the clear lack of evidence of efficacy, Pakistanis especially, continue to use homeopathic medicines to cure every illness from arthritis to a baby’s teething troubles. This has got to stop. If you know anyone using homepapthic medicine for something serious please share this with them. Especially in light if the coronavirus pandemic, please see a doctor if you exhibit any symptoms instead of resorting to homeopathic medicines that are being marketed online. They will not cure the virus, they cannot cure anything.
