Homeopathy does not work like that. Many believe that homeopathy means knowing a few remedies happening everywhere that an allopath will prescribe to broaden his therapeutic field (if it does not do good, it does not hurt !!!) hence the classification of remedies homeopathic as a placebo by its opponents.Janic wrote:
Where it's more interesting is when the person is opposed to a technique (like homeopathy) and it still works.Janic, you're sometimes priceless. Conversely, there are also cases where we give an active molecule and it doesn't work! While the patient was convinced that he was going to be cured ...!
No, homeopathy is the search for true similinum and not something close to it that will have no effect or reduced effects.
Homeopahia (like any therapy) does not claim to cure everything and will often be effective where allopathy has been in check.
When I cite this case of a co-worker suffering from end-stage cancer and I say that he will get out of it, there is no placebo effect since neither doctor nor colleagues believe it. When he does, and I announce that he is going to die, no one believes me either and he dies as I had announced. No placebo or nocebo effect in sight.
And yes! and not this one time! I do not ask to be believed, it is just a testimony, everyone does what he wants ... or nothing!
