Ministers considering ‘blacklisting’ homeopathic medicines

Comment

Homeopathy works as well as placebo because it is the 'ultimate' placebo. It is tailor made for the patient. We used to prescribe the 'red pills' but patients would not accept that in this day and age. This way we fool patients into thinking they are getting treated, thus harnessing the placebo effect, relying on the body's natural power of healing.
