The National Health Service in England, is no longer paying for Homeopathic treatment.  The local Homeopathic association sued the government and lost.

Outside the US, yes.

 

Homeopathy is 100% pure, unadulterated, non-GMO organic bullshit.

Yes.  Homeopathy is crap.  It gets more challenging when a field is mixed.  Herbalism for instance.  Much of it is crap.  Some of it works.  Or Vitamin therapy.  Some of it is crap.  Some of it works.

 

Not to drift off subject.  Things are strange in America.  I can understand why the insurance industry in general, would balk at covering Homeopathy.  If fools want to pay for their placebo, out of pocket -- I have no objection.  Sure it's a waste of money.  I think people are entitled to be stupid.

It's been years since I bothered looking into Homeopathy.  It's actually worse than that.  The literature is full of odd woo about changing the energy signature of water.  I'm not sure what that is supposed to mean -- but I'm fairly certain that the physics of water molecules is not easy to change.

​My husband's cousin went that route for her breast cancer......she died a couple of years ago.  

 

I just had my 13th anniversary cancer free......with the proper medical care.

Irish comedian Dara Ó Briain summed it up quite neatly when he said,

"They've tested all the traditional remedies and the ones that work ---

they're called 'medicine'."

Quite right.  I'm taking a laundry list of herbals.  I'm taking them on doctor's orders.  Real doctors.  Not herbalists.  Not Naturolpaths..  Real doctors.  I'm taking them because my doctors are persuaded that they work.  The real stuff does become part of the Medical world.

 

Anybody can give medical advice.  When my Rheumatologist tells me to take cinnamon and ginger, I pay attention.
