Perhaps it is vice versa?

Auxilium meum a Domino

The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want
He maketh me to lie down in green pastures
He leadeth me beside the still waters
He restoreth my soul

He leadeth me
in the paths of righteousness for his name’s sake
Yea, though I wal through the valley of the shadow of death
I will fear no evil, for thou art with me
Thy rod and thy staff they comfort me

Thou preparest a table before me
in the presence of mine enemies

Head on works,
It contains a number of ingredients, such as potassium
which are good for fighting headaches
no doubt it seeps in through the pores
It works about as well as any other headache
medicine in the US.
Which is to say, not very well, but it does help

Another good thing to put on your head when you
have a headache is peppermint oil

But give me codeine any day smile
With codeine my headache will actually
be cured.

Lived by the sea
And frolicked in the autumn mist
In Western Australi

Little Accipiter loved that girl enough
He told her jokes and crazy facts
And other forum stuff

Smerk the cutest dragon:
Traveled cross the sea,
To hunt her prey in foriegn lands,
And snuggle with Acci!

Smerk the cutest dragon
Is getting married now they say
Though little Accipiter
Has yet to name the day.

I saw something similar at a Rite Aid, I’m not sure if it was the exact same product. It was mentholated and worked like that stuff you rub on your chest when you have a cold (or are at a rave). If it is a placebo it sees to work, it gives your forehead a nice cool sensation from the menthol, it might just be that the odors have relaxing properties and that helps you relax and allows the headache to go away. The similars and potentization crap on the website is what scares me. But it seems like a reasonable idea if that chest stuff works why shouldn’t this?

And I think referring to all homeopathy as a hoax is a little bit premature, many of the cures we now use in western medicine have their roots in traditional herbal medicine, drug companies just make it all synthetic now instead of using real plants. I know some of it is total crap but that can’t be made into a blanket statement to apply to ALL of it.

Homeopathy has nothing to do with herbal medicine. Homeopathy is taking a toxic substance and diluting it in pure water to the point where there is literally none of the original toxin left. In other words, hemeopathy is literally treating your illness with pure water.

All homeopathy is quackery, by definition. It’s not premature. It’s been studied scientifically for at least a hundred years, and not a single credible study has shown any effects at all, positive or negative. Studies are still being done, and still coming up with the same results. We are long past the time to dismiss it as foolishness.

Of course they swear it works, it’s their product.  What are they going to do, say “Well we’ve invested a lot of money into developing this product and manufacturing it, but no, don’t buy it.  It doesn’t work.” wink

Homeopathy is a system of medicine that treats diseased individuals on the basis of using medicinal substances capable of producing similar changes in the health of a person as that of the diseased person. The term Homoeopathy is derived from the Greek words - homoios, meaning similar, and pathos, mean suffering. Homoeopathy is based on the principle - like cures like. Dr. Samuel Hahnemann, the founder of homeopathy, himself an allopathic doctor (M.D.). Homeopathy was established it in the late 18th and early 19th century by Dr. Samuel Hahnemann. He realised his own school of medicine (allopathy) wasnt helping the patients and spent years researching on homeopathy.

And Conventional Allopathic Medicine (CAM) often cures where homeopathy fails.

Read up on the Placebo Effect before Necroposting, thank you.

4. Personal testamonials are not proof.
