    Homeopathy got my eczema so under control that I don't have physical symptoms anymore. When I forget to take the "booster" it's 6 months apart now so I forget occasionally, then a little bit of symptoms show up but it's gone again once I take it. Maybe it is just the placebo effect, but I mean as long as it tricks my mind into keeping it under control I'm fine with that, plus I'd rather spend a couple bucks on it every few years, than spent a fortune on modern medicine. Of course if I had like cancer or broke my leg I'd still go to the doctor since I trust and use modern medicine. People just have to know the line when homeopathy works or when it doesn't. I mean hey, if jedi mind tricking is cheaper then why not use that in less severe cases, then go to the doctors when it's serious.🤷‍♀️

    there is absolutely no education for children or people wanting to learn about holistic care this is a very one sided video we know who paid for this video

    • Loik Steininger
      Loik Steininger 19 hours ago

      all out There is no education for it, since there are no academic fields that investigate any holistic care that comes up with positive data. As far as the world experts know, it’s all a scam and if it does help, the figures are the same as for the placebo effect.
      Bring evidence and publish some peer-reviewed papers if you think you’re right. Thus far, no one has been able to do it, and it isn’t because of some conspiracy, but because it doesn’t work.
      It’s incredible how intellectually dishonest people like you are! You’d rather believe there is a global conspiracy to withhold this holistic care from the world than the possibility that you might be wrong... Utter arrogance!

    I am so confused about homeopathy, I went to my vet because my dog has allergies and he injected my dog with two supposedly "homeopathic drugs", this is Germany and Homeopathy is very much baked into traditional medicine so it is not unusual. But this has me wonder if the idea of "homeopathy" is different in Germany, and if not, why isn't it regulated.
    My dog has a weak immune system so I am glad if antibiotics can be avoided, PROVIDED that it works of course.

  • Marc Sergio G. Ilagan

    6:20 Just watched this and as i search the meaning for the staff with two snakes, it seems that it's meaning doesn't match with the theme of this video which is medicine/ health care.
    The staff with TWO snakes symbolizes commerce. The correct one is a staff with ONE snake, the staff is named rod of Asclepius, which symbolizes healing and medicinal arts.
    Anyway, I explained this simply because I enjoy your videos and want to show my support.

    Holy shit...
    Like, yesterday I went to a psychologist because I have symptoms of depression. And after answering all his questions about me and my life he prescribed me the use of homeopathic medicine.
    I had never heard of the term homeopathy before so he briefly explained what it was: I didn't understand a thing, but I accepted trying anyway.
    So my dad bought me the medicine the doctor prescribed: a thing called "NATRUM MURIATICUM 500CH"
    I was suspicious of what it was so I started reading the label of the pill bottle to see if I could find their components.
    There was nothing indincating very clear what those pills were made of... but looking closer between the "how to use" of that pill bottle was written "sucrose".
    So today I googled both sucrose and homeopathy, and yes:
    Sucrose is just sugar.
    Homeopathy is a pseudoscience.
    The worst thing is that the package of pill bottles costed 164BRL (40USD), so we paid 40 USD for some bottles of diluted sugar.
    And then I curiously found this kurzgesagt video.
    And now I'm here.

But cases such as that of liquid crystals, which while flowing like an ordinary fluid can maintain an ordered structure over macroscopic distances, show the limitations of such ways of thinking.
    There have not, to the best of my knowledge, been any refutations of homeopathy that remain valid after this particular point is taken into account

    Modern medicine kills millions a year and keeps millions in chronically ill states never tending to the root cause. Homeopathy is something you will have to try for yourself. I am currently doing it. I have turned to fuctional medicine after not knowing why I was sick for almost 2 years. Found out I had mycoplasma and epstein barb high igg levels that md's would fasley over look telling me it was past infection. That caused a auto immune problem called mast cell activation. I was completely debilitated not long ago. Thank God for real doctors and fuctional medicine. An open mind can save your life. It saved mine. Currently still going through treatmemt and getting better everyday. The vaccine video is another laughable piece of bs. Dr. John Bergman debunks all of that vaccine happy giving psychos fake research. All bought and paid for to push their agenda.

      "if it helps it helps, despite what we sacrifice for that" is a bit naive... According to that logic, if sacrificing children would create a strong placebo effect, you'd be all for it.

    Homeopathy cured my thyroid and clearly that can't be cured due to place to effect. 😪🙄 It works people. Probably you never found the right doctor. It's better than allopathy. It doesn't have side effects.

      1) I am healthy and do not need medicines.
      2) If I get sick, I will find a better use of my money than wasting them on useless sugar balls.

    If homeopathy is true, then you can put a drop of whiskey in your water and then drink it to get super shitfaced and then die of alcohol poisoning.
