Last year leading pharmacies confessed that they didn’t believe homeopathy works. However, despite this discovery, and continual studies which prove that homeopathy achieves little health benefits, the National Health Service still managed to spend over 4 million pounds last year developing homeopathic medicines. Homeopathy – Does it Work? We will discuss it here in our article.
Astonished by the NHS’s and leading Pharmacies �?no harm’ attitude towards homeopathy, more than 300 activists are now planning to partake in a large group to help increase awareness about the fact that homeopathic remedies do not work.
What is Homeopathy?
Described by many as “all natural herbal medicine” many of the ingredients found within this complementary herbal medicine, are so weak that there is nothing medicinal about them.
However further studies into the discovery of homeopathy has revealed that it is not strictly an herbal medicine, but is is purely based on 3 medical concepts discovered in the 18th century by Samuel Hahnemann. 3 theories which are still used today in the development of homeopathic medicine are:
- The Law of Similars where whatever caused your illness will also cure them i.e. unable to sleep, take caffeine.
- The Law of Infinitesimals where the more weak the remedy, the more potent it will become.
- The Law of Succession where intense mixing of a homeopathic remedy would enhance its potency.
Assessing this information, it is easily understandable why sceptics of homeopathy are calling upon the government to order the National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence to assess whether it is necessary for the NHS to fund homeopathic remedies. Providing few if any positive results, all clinical studies point to the fact that they will not improve your immune system.
