Homeopathy has always been a controversial area of holistic or complementary medicine.

Those with an opinion about homeopathy tend to fall into one of two diametrically-opposed camps: some think it’s scientifically implausible or impossible for homeopathic remedies to work, while others know from their own experience that homeopathy does work, even though we don’t yet have a verifiable way of explaining how. The recent US medical school debate about homeopathy illustrates this perfectly.

There’s nothing wrong with being sceptical about things: in fact, scepticism can be extremely healthy. I just don’t think that it’s healthy to ignore evidence from hundreds of thousands of satisfied patients who are convinced that homeopathy was the treatment that helped them to restore their health.

After all, the healthiest of minds tends to be an open one.
