This will explain better than I ever can. There is a reason homeopathy doesn't pass clinical trials.
There are thousands of Dr's who would not agree about people being on a vegetarian/vegan diet .
Re the link , he didn't quote where the trials were or the conditions , the authors main rave seem to be about the advice that homeopathic gave there patients .
Personally I have found them very effective in treatment of certain conditions .....but defiantly homeopathic does not work for every one .
Below are some stats .They do vary slightly ....depends which site you visit , but it gives a general idea of the %.http://www.wholehealthnow.com/homeop...pathy_faq.html
If you think you must "believe in" homeopathy for it to work, you need to know that it is not a placebo effect. Here are some powerful examples:
Infants: Homeopathic remedies and treatments are successfully used by parents for common infant ailments such as colic, teething pain and some infections.
Animals: There are many veterinarians using homeopathic medicines to treat domestic pets such as cats, dogs and birds, as well as barnyard animals like goats, horses and cows. Is it possible to have a placebo effect with animals?
Millions of people across the world use and rely on homeopathic remedies. Today there are a rapidly growing number of conventional medical doctors using homeopathic medicines, including:
- 39% of French family physicians
- 20% of German physicians
- 10% of Italian physicians
To the OP , hope we haven't gone of topic to much .....and you are on the up and mend .
