Homeopathy and Sports Injury

    Sorry guys but it doesn't work at all. Placebo effect maybe but that can't be true for animals. There is no therapeutic component to the medicine provided and it does nothing. The theories that there is residual effect from the substance in the water defies all the known laws of physics and chemistry. These days we have pretty much sorted chemistry and pharmaceuticals out. Not many mysteries left. Tkemp, the pills do nothing to speed your cat's recovery. If indeed they are glucose based tablets they might be doing harm. Cats and sugar don' go well together.

    I wouldn't be too sure about that, especially for 'higher' animals, eg cats, dogs, pigs, cows, horses, elephants, etc.

    Snails, spiders, worms, probably not.

    Bacteria, viruses, almost certainly not?

    My working hypothesis would be that if a human being can form a relationship with an animal, similar to that formed between humans and cats and dogs, for example, then that animal will be susceptible to the placebo effect.

    Just an idea.

    Epic fail!
    The science show that homeopathy does not work; so now the scientific method needs to be changed ... go figure that one out!

    If they were ever capable of changing their minds based on the fundamental principles of science they would be pharmacists, not homeopaths dropping water onto sugar pills.

    Simple fact is that water is just water, and brandy is just brandy. It doesn't matter what happened to it before. Jill and Tom might weigh 80kgs because Tom lost 20kgs and Jill gained 15kgs. Interesting but they still both weigh 80kgs.
