I've been to homeopaths before and they've given me tiny little round pills that seemed to do sweet fuck all. I even took my daughter to a homeopath because I hadn't learnt my own lesson. The end result was the same: NOTHING. But, going to a homeopath cost me money. So... had I been fooled? Luckily, I have the internet so I could find out more about homeopathy almost instantly.
Religion is defined in the Oxford dictionary (a very worthy source) as "A particular system of faith and worship" and "A pursuit or interest followed with great devotion." Some people actually have so much faith in this homeopathy 'interest 'which they follow with devotion that they die from what ails them because they have not sought treatment from conventional medicine. Picard (2015) explains that the Australian National Health and Medical Research Council has published a report that concludes: “There are no conditions for which there is reliable evidence that homeopathy is effective.” None. The effect homeopathic remedies have, if any, is that of a placebo.
My favourite article of all time about homeopathy is this one by The Back Burner:
"Homeopathy, an alternative medicine practice dating back to the 18th century, operates under the principle that water holds “memory” and that a substance will increase in efficacy as it is diluted in solution. Cordial, a sweet syrup used to make flavoured drinks with added water, operates under the principle that as you add more water to it, it gets less good."
“It just doesn’t add up,” says AHA spokesperson James Douglas, “the more water you put in, the more it tastes like water, at 1 part cordial to 10,000 parts water, it tastes indistinguishable from water and nothing like the ‘super cordial’ we anticipated.”
According to Peter Morrell (2015), many homeopaths have high interests in religious and philiosophical thought. Dr Ralph Twentyman (1978) stated "The history of homoeopathy... resembles much too much the history of religion with its conflicts between orthodoxy and heresy. So often the heresy of one age becomes the orthodoxy of the next."
Therefore, in conclusion, to sum up........... yes, homeopathy is officially kind of like a religion. If it helps anything, it helps your mind. So don't bother going to get fixed by any homeopaths because it won't work. Go to a real doctor.
