Re: Homeopaths Without Borders practice exploitation not humanitarianism
I had homeopathic treatment back in the late 1980s for IBS. It worked, whereas conventional medicine had not.
Yet I understand the scientific process required to evaluate treatments. If I want to claim that homeopathy works I would have to provide the evidence. I can't simply say to a critic 'well prove it didn't'. That's not how science works.
I can't explain how I got better with homeopathy. Perhaps it works or maybe I just got better anyway and the homeopathic treatment simply worked by placebo.
Christine E. Jahnig needs to learn a little about science, how to test a hypothesis and the basic scientific method of enquiry before making demands of scientists.
