    This is an article from Russia posted on RT claiming that homeopathy is a "pseudoscience" BUT, what they are also saying is that "phytotherapy" is actually quite good...:

    Homeopathy is ‘pseudoscience’ – Russia’s top science body — RT News

    To a certain degree I would tend to agree.

    Homeopathic practices do NOT work in crisis or emergency situations except in the rarest of cases. Homeopathy is predicated on micro doses over a life time or at least an extended period of time.

    As a life long practice it IS effective at maintaining and even enhancing one's general state of health. It is most unfortunate with the advent of GMOs that the micronutrients in the soil are no longer pulled up into the plants and therefore are no longer part of the food chain and consequently not found meats, vegetables and fruits in markets and grocery stores across the land and spreading across the globe.

    Because of this, except for those who eat only genuinely organically fed meats and dairy as well as fruits and veggies, the benefits of homeopathy are practically non-existant today.

    Russians as well as all people would do well to use good sense if they use or plan to use phytotherapy. Here, again, it is necessary to mindful of the sources of ingredients of their foods and medicines or medicinal foods to make sure they are from genuinely organic sources.

    Phytotherapy does work in crisis or emergency situations providing both cures and healing. Many times these are as effective or more effective than pharmaceutical products. They will also many times work as fast if not faster than pharmaceutical products.

    Phytotherapy is similar to, if not actually Chinese medicine. They seem to live as long and as well as we do with our over rated, over priced & over controlled pharma-gods. They do not require an "agent" to authorize their medicine, you just go to the Chinese herb store & they help you get the med's you want/need. Mexico, too, you just walk into the pharmacy & ask for what you want, unless it is mind altering.

    So we're supposed to trust the AMA and big pharma? There's so much misinformation favoring the medical establishment that I'm inclined towards older sciences.

    Just to add a bit of fuel to the fire. A year old but good.

    CDC: Prescription Drugs Kill More Than Illegal Drugs; Teens at High Risk

    Data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention show that more people die from legally prescribed drugs than from heroin and cocaine combined. The CDC has classified the situation as an “epidemic.”

    What’s worse is that a study by the Journal of Public Policy and Marketing published earlier this year revealed that teens continue to be particularly vulnerable to the allure of prescription drugs because they perceive pharmaceuticals as being “blessed by a trusted institution": the Food and Drug Administration.

    Homeopathic cures don't make much sense to me, being that some are dilutions in the 1000's - but having said that, I did use a homeopathic remedy for sciatic nerve pain one time, and it worked, or something worked. I took drops under my tongue every 15 minute for a day or two and it went away. Still doesn't make sense - and if wasn't so cheap, I wouldn't have tried it :)
