    What worse is the ideology behind the "medicine". If X causes Y symptom, they think X may also be a cure for Y if it's in minute amounts.

    That's the concept of homeopathy in a nutshell, my friend. Scary, isn't it?

    Try it with polonium. You can be fairly sure of killing an 80kg man with 6.6 micrograms (a dust like speck) if you can get them to ingest it.
    Lol. It seems that may be the cure for polonium poisoning...ingest more polonium - BUT only 'as a dilution' :wtf:

    Lol, you are not alone. It's the most commercialised form of (true) placebo I can think of.

    And this apparently IS the methodology behind their prescription of "medicine".

    The only things causing symptomatic resolution are the placebo effect and regression to the mean (ie innate self-resolution).

    Congratulations on never being ill enough to need real medicine then.

    Imagine never needing actual medicine during the statistically healthiest period of one's life. Shock. I hope for your sake that you embrace actual medicine when required. Placebos only go so far.

    Sounds reliable. Perhaps you just actually get better sometimes?

    This has to be the biggest scam in 'healthcare', and a very unethical practice.

    I'd have a look at this before spending any money, also those dilutions you mention are to the power of 10, as in, one useful molecule per 10^30 water molecules

    i've tried it and it most definitely does work.
    I'm afraid that either means that you took it when your body was recovering anyway, or that you have a powerful mind over matter situation
