Homeo medicines are not plain water they are posionious dangerous and always harmful
No matter what potency you take how many pills you take you will experince the aggravation.
I challenge the homeopaths give 200C of Acid Phos
or 1M of Acid phos(or Nux or conium or titanium )to your family member see what happens then reply to me
The most common misbelive about homeopathy is it cures
reality is it aggravates the symtoms thats what they saw when the were doing the proving and
if one million pepole take the same medicine
they will experined the same aggravation of symtom
may be it will vary little bit dependng upon persons physical condition but he or she will definetely experience the aggravtion.
While I don't discount your experiences at the hands of a homeopath, "true homeopathy" is actually just water.

A typical homeopathic recipe would be:
Take 1cc of anything (iodine let's say) and dilute it 1:100 with pure water.

You now have a 1% solution. That's 1C. A typical homeopathic remedy is 30c or 1:100 to the 30th power.

Or, 1cc of iodine in 1,000,000,000,000,000,000,000, 000,000,000,000,000,000,000,00 0,000,000,000,000,000ccs of pure water.

I'm not exagerating.

About homeopathy
Few questions to homeopaths
Homeopaths say that if a person takes a particular medicine for a particular illness say for example Aconite in fever
then the person recovers from fever. If the person does not have fever then he will have fever homeopaths call it proving I think they all agree with it
Whether or not person gets cured thats a different question.
The question is who desiseds that the person is ill ?
The person's body or the medicine itself.
Either one of them has to decide (there is no third party.)
Lets say the medicine decides that the person is ill I should heal him or her but how does the medicine take the decision?
Does it have any database or some mechanism to check the human(homeopaths now are not limited to human they say cat dog any animal or even plant)
Or thus the person who makes the medicine gives some guideline to the medicine(for example Aconite) that if the persons body temperature is more than normal temperature
then reduce the temperature but if it is normal then increase the temperature give the person fever(they call it Proving?)
Does any one see any justification or any explanation of it.
Now if the person or the person's body decides that he or she is ill how does it tell that hey my dear friend medicine I am ill I have a fever please cure me.
and the medicine says Ok if you have fever do not worry Let me check your system if you do have fever then I will cure you.
But remember if you do not have fever then you will bring fever in your body. The medicine is smart enough to take the decision about the condition of the person.
Medicine decides already the same medicine is present in the body or not if already there then even if the person has illness it can aggravate(homeopaths say taking too many doses or too high or low potency can cause aggravation they call it healing crises.)
The medicine checks its own potency compare with the illness duration how cronic it is (for this case how much the temparature is how old the fever is etc) then acts accordingly.
Homeopaths say very high potency or low potency cause aggravation
so the medicine has to compare its potency number of dose and amount along with persons present situation. My god how much complicated it is
This has to happen because homeopaths say if person is ill then matching the symptoms they give medicine it cures the patient and if the symptoms do not match
it cause aggravation(Proving healing crisis aggravation whatever blah blah blah) I think every homeopaths will agree , it is there fundamental belief Right?
Do any one see any justification in it.

Common either the body has to decide or the medicine has to decide that person is ill or not

"What amazes me is that this people talking crap about homeopathy and discouraging people to follow it have nothing better to do but to take down other people's beliefs."

Lets start here, shall we? A 'medicine' isn't a "belief". It's scientifically proven to do what it's supposed to do, as it has Medicinal uses.

"Why don't you go home to study your ridiculous scientific books while you watch MTV's reality shows cause you obviously believe that's the kind of "real world" you live in."

I'm not sure which ridiculous scientific books you're talking about, but the scientific books I read are full of proven, documented and testing facts. The book YOU'RE on about is where you found Homeopathy.

"Leave believers alone!!! I know you're afraid that they will take over the world one day...and you're damn right!!! I wish they do, and skeptic people like you will be extinguished!!!!"

No, I'm really not afraid of you "believers" taking over the world. Keep taking your Homeo medicines and you'll be dead or dying.

So, apart from belief, what does Homeo have to back its claims? Are there any PROVEN cases that it works? Perhaps you can show some scientific test results? No? I didn't think so. Probably because it's Bullshit!
