There does need to be strict legislation re people giving advice that is potentially deadly- whatever medicine they promote and there needs to be strict freedom of choice as to what patients choose. I'm glad I went against my doctors advice and used "non empirical medicine" instead.

When thinking of homeopathic remedies, my eyes glaze over and none of it makes sense. Water is great stuff, it's my favourite thing to drink, bathe in and play around in. Will it cure cancer? I don't see how it could. Can it cure a common cold? Yes, probably, since fluids are needed to help the body recover. So it can have what some people might call a medicinal effect for certain things.
Well we all would die without water after all

ETA. I will happily agree that with our current understanding, it does seem unlikely that homeopathy works.

The mechanism by which homeopathy is supposed to work - the whole, 'water has a memory if you tap it this way' thing- I think we can safely say that if water could remember the one diluted ingredient a homeopath added, it would remember all the other things that had been in it, which would potentially make the remedy do many other things than it was intended- yet they don't.
