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

Not just normal necroposting, supernecro!

1: Extraordinary claims require extraordinary proof. If it does what it says, you should have no problem with this.
2: What proof will you accept that you are wrong? You ask us to change our mind, but we cannot change yours?
3: It is not our responsability to disprove your claims, but rather your responsability to prove them.
4. Personal testamonials are not proof.

What part of ‘meow’ don’t you understand?

Homeopathy cures where Conventional Allopathic Medicine (CAM) fails

Actually, since the placebo effect is part of conventional medicine, and homeopathy is no more effective than a placebo, homeopathy cures where conventional medicine would likely have been equally effective. And, as Accipiter pointed out, it also fails in a great many situations where conventional medicine does not.

Well, at least she’s following her own lead, since she appears to have created a ‘cause’ on social actions to ‘promote homoeopathy’ (members: 1). If you read her profile, you will find that all of her credentials are homoeopathy derived.

Both her profile and her “homoeopathy cures…” quote are word-for-word copies of her entries on other sites (1)(2).

Also, for someone so versed in homoeopathic medicine, I’m rather surprised that she doesn’t know that CAM doesn’t stand for “Conventional Allopatric Medicine”, it is an abbreviation for “Complementary and Alternative Medicine” (i.e. homoeopathy).

I could always beat you with things (e.g. celery, wet Royal Wedding tea-towels, back issues of Watchtower) if you’d prefer?

It’s a new therapy I’ve invented called homoeorotic medicine.

Wouldn’t I have to be male for it to be homoerotic?


Alternately, you could be female I suppose. Hrm….

No, it’s homoeorotic.

It’s where erotic arousal is caused by a strong dose (beating) of something that would cause the opposite effect in its usual dilute form (such as Steven Segal movie). It’s an extension of Hahnemann’s principle of like curing like.

I am, of course, telling you this as a fully-qualified[*] Doctor of Homoeorotic Medicine.

From the good doctor’s website:

A leading Gurgaon-based Homoeopathic Physician, a specialist with a national clientele and a practice spanning over 04 years in the health care industry.


big surprise

Quite a span.
That could be a typo…
I distrust people who sign on to a forum using their professional title, especially with an avatar like that.
It gives her less credibility instead of more.

My wife’s a RN and we have several friends in the ‘health care industry’ who are doctors and they would NEVER manifest themselves like that.

That’s why I never use my official title of ‘Cardinal’ on the forum.
