I wish they’d remember that homeopathy predates germ theory. More importantly, do they at least attempt to broach their theory of...water ionic memory, I guess?...to scientific journals?

After decades of failing to prove that homeopathy has any effect for any disease or health condition beyond that of a placebo, hardly anyone tries anymore. It's considered to be a waste of time and funds, plus in some cases it can cause actual damage by not giving the test subjects proven treatment. As far as I'm aware, there's been no serious attempts to create a falsifiable definition of "water memory", so it can't be tested either. And yet, there are people who still demand their witch doctory, and demand that they provide their witch doctory to others, because if you don't let them then you're in league with witches. No, sorry, *you* are the witches. (Apologies to any Wiccans who may be reading.) It's sad, but... humans.

Homeopathy works much better with mountain crystals, essential oils, fresh blossoms, very expensive hand packed Dead Sea salts, and radiation absorbing decals. The effectiveness jumps from exactly zero to exactly zero.

Medecins Sans Frontieres is a volunteer-based, non-profit organisation too.

They'll be standing by with vaccines when your 'Magic Water' can't cure Ebola.

...and unless you've perfected Nanotechnology with that 'Dilute' of yours as a suspension - also molecule supply - medium: thus a Nobel Prize is yours for the asking, let's see you treat Cleft Palates: or restore missing/amputated limbs with your 'Alternative' treatment.

You want to spread clean water in the world, cleaner than the tap-water in Europe? That's commendable.
If you really think you'll actually do anything else, like curing people with water that no longer has a single molecule of the thing you started the dilution with, then you're delusional.

Healing in emergency situations? You're aware that in certain areas, pushing pseudoscience is illegal for certain ailments, right?

Clean water IS important for healthcare, but it's a base, not a cure. Oh, and what are you going to use to dilute with, in areas where there is no clean water?

They are actually even more dangerous than they you may think. During the last Ebola pandemic, they planned to "help". By making homeopathic Ebola. Using live samples. And no, it would NOT have been diluted Ingo nothingness because some of the germs would cling to the surface of the glasses.

Fortunately, the authorities stopped them.

If you believe that, leave them alone.

Let's see how its results compare with (real) doctors without borders.

You know, I was really hoping that was a satire site. Unfortunately it is not.

Homeopaths Without Border’s mission is to take advantage of the gullibility of people in desperate circumstances by giving them immeasurably small amounts of magic juju (homeopathy) instead of the real medicines that they need.

You're a ghoul, and a rather stupid one at that. The "best practice" of homeopathy is to go the way of phrenology and reading the entrails of a sacrificed goat, and disappear from intelligent society altogether.

OH DEAR LORD! Even as a person who otherwise believes in Alt-Medicine (as an accompaniment to Allopathic Medicine) I think this is DUMBASS! Poor suffering people are not gonna get their Ebola cured by some highly-diluted herbal concoction.

Some stuff needs heavy modern Doctor stuff like surgery, antibiotics or chemo! That's just the way it is.

I may be a believer in herbalism but Homeopathy is one form I find supremely stupid. Again; Natural medicine should never replace modern medicine if you have something really serious.

@SpukiKitty: Er, you do remember that modern medicine is, in part, winnowed natural medicine, yes? (i.e. cleaned of false positives that carry the risk of bringing complications)

@ Pharoah: They were going to fuck around with Ebola? Even-odds this kind of thing is how some sort of pandemic starts.

The origin of the most common of full-strength pharmaceuticals: so common it's now available for pennies, Aspirin:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aspirin#History

Medicines made from willow and other salicylate-rich plants appear in clay tablets from ancient Sumer as well as the Ebers Papyrus from ancient Egypt. Hippocrates referred to their use of salicylic tea to reduce fevers around 400 BC, and were part of the pharmacopoeia of Western medicine in classical antiquity and the Middle Ages. Willow bark extract became recognized for its specific effects on fever, pain and inflammation in the mid-eighteenth century. By the nineteenth century pharmacists were experimenting with and prescribing a variety of chemicals related to salicylic acid, the active component of willow extract


Thus one reason why the Rainforests must be protected.

Who knows what cures: and for what ailments/diseases are yet to be found: and from plants yet undiscovered in Nature's own Pharmaceutical Lab...?!

PROTIP: Just one of the diseases that can be prevented no less by the most common of pharmaceuticals:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aspirin#Cancer_prevention

The peer-reviewed results have been published in august medical journals such as "The Lancet" & "British Medical Journal". Your move, Psycho... er, I mean Homeopaths.

Tl;dr: You don't know how right you are, SpukiKitty. b^_^d

Where homeopathy does not exist or is minimal. LOL

If they're less snake oil peddlers and more the morons who dip into their own stash maybe with a little finesse someone could trick them into putting real effort into digging wells rather than selling the fake medicine that they want people to put in to their water because water is 99% of homeopathic medicine. The remaining 1% is divided between bullshit, delusion, superstition, and lawn clippings. Good intentions only included as an optional aftermarket additive.

That's why I volunteer with Doctors Without Borders. You know, REAL medicine.
