Must be a US thing. The Royal Physician in Britian is a homeopath.

Joan I believe that anything that makes the patient feel better has value. Tom

LOL it probably is. It's strongest where I am!....NYer's don't believe in much and if we do believe in it you better believe there is enough research about it to stretch from here to the next galaxy

I don't know enough about it to state that it definately works, but I have seen and read enough to know that it often does help. I know some rehabbers that swear by it, and their success rate is great. I would not depend ONLY on homepathy, but I would certainly not hesitate to use it if it would help. Many of our present day medicines were once 'folk medicine', concocted from plants, and I'm sure many future drugs will come from the same sources. Our medical profession will readily admit that there are many things yet to be discovered in the way of treatments and drugs. I'll use anything to help my squirrels, as long as I know it won't harm them.

Well, was that "Poop Cocktail" what cured Peaches? It's the only thing I hadn't tried and it sure was a coincidence that she was cured within 12 hours and the diarreah has not been back yet. (Holding my breath).

Anyway, just thought I'd mention that.

Likely as it contained the needed "good" bacteria that stops disrrhea. All the other "medicines" are second best. It's like comparing breast milk and formula. Formula works, but mama's milk has lots of other good stuff that prevents disease.

It definitly has merit, and is worth looking into.

Animals in the wild use homeopathic medicines all of the time. The instinctively know what to eat for nutrition and their health, and for healing injuries and illness. It makes sense to me to learn what they already know, and apply it.

It won't make the patient feel better,it's just water.

No they don't. Homeopathy is just water that has had something in it that is so diluted that that something is no longer there.

There's something to be said for homeopathy, It's a much more natural way of approaching health some of It works. There's things in plants stuff like that, I can't say what but sometimes It's an option.
