The first time I went to a homeopath I was about 13 and my tonsils were swollen and I felt I was coming down with something (I´ve never had tonsillitis but i guessed that´s what it was going to be). That very day, after taking a remedy, my tonsils were normal again and I was feeling much better. The next day there was no sign of any illness.
A few years later I had a nose bleeding problem – for a few weeks my nose bled almost every other day and I could´t predict when it would happen. once it even happened while I was playing piano in a house concert! Then I went to the homeopath again and since taking the remedy my nose didn´t bleed again!! (i think the remedy was phosphorous)
I´ve known a few people who grew up homeopathically – imagine that, they never took any allopathic medicine, and are healthy people!

There is, of course, no such thing as “scientific homoeopathy”, homeopathy is pseudoscience which is inconsistent with everything we have discovered about the nature of matter since Hahnemann’s time. Around half of all the Nobel prizes in physics in the last century were awarded for work that directly contradicts the core tenets of homeopathy, and as far as I can tell 100 percent of the medicine Nobels were also awarded for work that goes against it.

Anyone who can provide credible evidence of homeopathy’s validity gets a million dollars from JREF and a free trip to Stockholm. We’re waiting…
