Does Homeopathy Work?

So why is such a simple idea so controversial and greeted with such scepticism?

There are a couple of problems. The first one is that the dose is so diluted that scientists cannot accept that there can be any therapeutic effect, and they put any positive outcomes down to a placebo effect.

Our second problem is that homeopathy cannot be fitted into the randomised controlled trial, the gold standard for establishing the efficacy of pharmaceutical drugs. There is an inescapable conflict between the two. Conventional medicine classifies diseases, and fits patients into their disease category, whereas homeopathy identifies the differences between patients even if they are apparently suffering from the same disease. It would be remarkable if a homeopathic remedy showed any effect when misused in randomised controlled trials.
