  • Pseudoscientific system of alternative medicine
  • Practitioners, called homeopaths, believe that a substance that causes symptoms of a disease in healthy people can cure similar symptoms in sick people; this doctrine is called similia similibus curentur, or “like cures like”
  • All relevant scientific knowledge about physics, chemistry, biochemistry and biologygained since at least the mid-19th century contradicts homeopathy.
  • Homeopathic remedies are typically biochemically inert, and have no effect on any known disease
  • Its theory of disease, centered around principles Hahnemann termed miasms, is inconsistent with subsequent identification of viruses and bacteria as causes of disease
  • Clinical trials have been conducted and generally demonstrated no objective effect from homeopathic preparations
  • The fundamental implausibility of homeopathy as well as a lack of demonstrable effectiveness has led to it being characterized within the scientific and medical communities as quackery and fraud
