Samuel Hahnemann: crank-in-chief; hater of coffee

If homeopaths called themselves placebo therapists, nobody would have a problem with them.

This is not a flippant observation, nor one that is openly contemptuous despite the fact that homeopaths go out of their way to invite contempt. Placebos have been seen to show actual therapeutic benefit in some cases in controlled experimental environments and have approximately the same success rate as homeopathy. It’s all there in the 1000’s of independent research papers that the closed minded, communist fascist BigPharma controlled scientific community is apparently suppressing.

There is also another major benefit that could be realised if water quacks called themselves placebo therapists – they would be perceived as being honest. The honesty would be beyond dispute and it is a universally admired trait that money simply can’t buy. Unlike homeopathy “degrees” which have the same academic prerequisites as getting a boob job and for the right price can be purchased anywhere.

It’s quite the little industry too. If you are going to build a career in parting fools and money, you have to get hands on expertise in being the fool who money is parted from. (more…)

Contrary to popular belief, there are enormous inherent dangers to the seemingly safe and natural practice of homeopathic therapy. In fact, every year thousands of innocent people fall victim to the tragedy of accidental homeopathic overdose.

They drown.


All jokes aside, whilst the best response in most cases to the alt.medicine brigade (entirely impervious to reason, shame and common decency) is ridicule, it has to be remembered that the industry as a whole is entirely complicit in largely unpublicised, yet extremely widespread needless misery, suffering and death.

The abuses range from the extreme where a couple allowed their baby daughter to die of eczema (try and think of a worse way to die) by withholding conventional medical treatment and opting for homeopathy (more…)
