No, although trust is important in any doctor-patient relationship and any treatment, conventional or homeopathic, has a context or placebo effect, homeopathy is more than a placebo effect. Here are some powerful examples:
- Babies: Homeopathic medicines are successfully used by parents for common disorders such as colic, teething pain and infections.
- Animals: There are many veterinarians using homeopathic medicines to treat domestic pets such as cats, dogs and birds, as well as livestock animals like goats, horses and cows.
- Millions of people across the world use and rely on homeopathic medicines.
Today there is a rapidly growing number of conventional medical doctors using homeopathic medicines or referring patients to homeopathic doctors.
