Homeopathy: Dead Sharks and Hufflepuff Meds

Happiness is waking up to a fresh Ecomodernist Mom post. However today the topic is definitely not a happy one. Amy’s topic is quackery – homeopathy in particular.

As far as I’m concerned, homeopathy falls into the same category as all unproven supplements and herbal “medicine” and everything else under the alternative umbrella. I think it’s all bullshit but I’m not trying to ban it. If people want to buy magic water and pretend it does something, then by all means, they should knock themselves out.  But why not label it correctly?

Amy knows a great deal about the suffering that quacks can inflict on patients like her mom.

  1. I couldn’t agree more about the heartlessness issue. I feel the same way about Democrats and blacks. Democrats have spent the last 50 or so years destroying the black community and black families, and continue to sell them the same quackery. “If only you’d come to me sooner”…indeed.

  2. Homeopathologists assert that a medication is more effective if it is diluted perhaps 10,000 : 1. Of course there is no science to back that up; it is even contrary to common sense.

    From 1994 to 2004 I lived in Fiji. I learned that quite often someone with cancer will see a “traditional” healer before seeing a real doctor by which time the cancer has progressed so far that there is little hope for a cure.

    These quacks steal people’s money while providing false hope and delaying treatment which might be able to effect a cure. Most likely this problem will continue about forever.
