  • Homeopathy doesn’t work and there is enough research done to prove that it doesn’t work.
    The founders and investors are greedy and want to lure weak and gullible people and make money out of it.
    I have no idea how could anyone fund this without any scientific backing.
    Greedy founders and investors.

  • Its sad how people like you go by some paid articles Satish
    You trying to say that over 500 million people in the globe are foolish?
    You trying to say that you are more learned and aware than the investors of this portal and may other such strong believers and benefitters of homeopathy
    My entire family is on homeopathy and it has been a boon in our lives.
    We have got tremendous benefits without obscene costs of main stream and unwanted side effects of the more popular form of medical science.
    Be aware before you voice your opinion.
    People like you create negative impressions of the 2nd largest form of science and create doubts in the mind of people who consider safe and natural forms of treatments.

  • Hello Rahul,

    I have no idea how you concluded that they are paid articles.
    There is NO scientific methodology involved in homeopathy. There is NO proof it works. Personal experiences are placebo effects.
    I kindly request you to read the research paper by NHMRC. Instead of blindly saying that it’s payed, you can produce peer reviewed research paper’s by scientific community which supports homeopathy.

    Yes, I am learned and Learning about new things daily.
    It doesn’t mean that investor are learned about homeopathy. They worry about ROI.

    Homeopathy practitioner knowingly or unknowingly cheat weak, gullible, poor and ignorant people.

    I again kindly request you to produce peer reviewed paper accepted by scientific community. Not personal experiences or what you or anybody believes.

  • Hello Rahul,

    There is only one science. Rest are all pseudoscience and Homeopathy is one of them. I didn’t mean to be brash but one cannot overlook the fact.

  • Name calling is NOT good for a healthy debate. Thanks.

    The link provided has ambiguous claims without any proofs. There is no link any peer reviewed study papers as well.
    Modern medicine has issues but it doesn’t mean homeopathy is the alternative.

    Instead if name calling and bogus claims, kindly provide some good peer reviewed research and study papers (scientific).

    Thanks again.
