    Even water can be harmful in large quantities. 

    There has to balance in everything.

    If a person uses homeopathy but continues to live harmful lifestyle,  it can only help him so much. The side effect often comes from the habbits that caused worsening of health in the first place. 

    Herbs are also known to interact with prescription meds.

      I know someone who smoked heavily who lived into their 100s. This does nothing to disprove that smoking is bad for health. Two people who happened to live long lives proves nothing, especially when the age we live to is extremely dependent on genetics.

    nope, just drugs do, that's why I avoid them, and did you know, John D. Rockefeller had a Homeopathic physician and lived into his 90's and his son lived to 101yo.....though many people here are quack lovers and will make fun of you or attack you..... but if you learn herbs and homeopathy you can do lots of healing without side-effects and dangerous drugs......

    Homeopathy is practically 100% water. The amount of active ingredient in the average homeopathic remedy is literally comparable to a drop of water in the ocean.

    On top of this the theory behind how homeopathy works is pseudoscientific and has been shown over and over again by scientific research to not work.

    Finally, despite many efforts by CDC and FDA, the alternative medicine and supplement industry (about the same size as big pharma) has been able to go completely unregulated. They have paid millions of dollars to politicians to bribe them into letting them remain as unregulated and untested as possible. If you get a medication the ingredient list will tell you exactly what and how much is in it. With the alternative medicine industry on the other hand studies have shown that over 50% of the treatments never even contained traceable levels of theactive ingredients they claimed to consist of. Less than 1% had them in the amounts claimed. If you take a homeopathic or alternative remedy, the truth is that you have absolutely no idea you are ingesting due to the dis-regulation of the industry.

      If you can't use correct grammar when calling me a pseudo-scientist then you likely are not qualified to define one. Homeopathy matches the very definition of pseudoscience as research shows it doesn't work and there is no mechanism that fits with established scientific processes.

    Not directly, because those little sugar pills have zero active ingredients other than some sugar, typically lactose.

    Indirectly, they can cause a medical condition to worsen because it's left untreated with real medicine.
