We've used homeopathy for years, with an MD who studied in homeopathic hospitals in Europe. Given all the problems with things like HRT, the rise in chronic and incurable diseases, and the proliferation of antibiotic-resistant germs, homeopathy is a genuine medical alternative.
I think some of this is from people living longer.
As far as the proliferation of antibiotic-resistant germs, doctors and lawyers are to blame. Too often docs have prescribed antibiotic to legally CYA.
I for one is not yet willing to jump on the homeopathic band wagon but it really needs to be studied. There is a lot of potential out there that shouldn't be dismissed.
