Homeopathy to the Rescue

Homeopathy works

Time and Time again Homeopathy has come to the rescue in times of an epidemic.
The Homoeopathic profession is greatly indebted to Dr. E. M. Kellogg, of this city, for the laborious collection and arrangement of the mass of statistics embodied in the Minority Report, which fully sustains Gov. Pinckney, in the following conclusions, with which he sums up.
“I. – That Homoeopathy has ceased to be an experiment, and is on established system of medicine.”
“II. – That as compared with Allopathy, the expense of Homoeopathic treatment is much less.”
“III. – That the duration of disease under Homoeopathic treatment is much less.”
“IV. – That the mortality under Homoeopathic treatment is much less.”

Notwithstanding the overwhelming testimony thus adduced in support of Homoeopathic treatment, the majority of the Committee report against its introduction into Bellevue Hospital, and although the subject lies upon the table, waiting for final action, we can hardly hope for a favorable decision, at present, and those who are so unfortunate as to become subjects for Hospital treatment, in this great city, must still continue to undergo all the horrors of Allopathy.

  1. This is what Wikipedia has to say about homeopathy…
    ” Homeopathy is a pseudoscience – a belief that is incorrectly presented as scientific. Homeopathic preparations are not effective for treating any condition.”
    Don’t get scamed by something that’s no more than a placebo.

  2. Homoepathic medicines are made by diluting the so called active ingredient to a very high degree, (more diluted than one drop in all of the Earth’s oceans) until there are no molecules of the active ingredient present in the solution. In other words it’s only there on the label. Those who advocate homeopathic medicine argue that the substance doesn’t need to be there, it has left a “memory” on the water or other harmless materials in the medicine. This is of course utter nonsense, it is not possible for a chemical or element to leave an imprint. In the end all that you are buying is just water or a sugar pill.

  3. It’s funny how anyone can swallow 50 homeopathy sleeping pills in one go with no ill effects. They’re nothing but sugar pills.

  4. Homeopatia lucreaza, este foarte eficienta, salveaza vieti iar cei care spun contrariul sunt cei mai mari prosti si idioti din tot UNIVERSUL.
