“Of course homeopathy works. The only thing to be determined is HOW it works. Even if the authors of this article think that it only works by placebo, what they then mean is that the homeopathic consultation and the belief of the homeopathic doctor is the source of healing, rather than the medication. And if that is the case, then conventional medicine has much to learn from homeopathy. And if it’s the medicine, then doctors have even more to learn from homeopathy. Thus the worst thing to do is to trash homeopathy in any way.”

(This was one of several rapid responses sent to the British Medical Journal by Western doctors and others in response to the review by the Australian National Health and Medical Research Council which stated the Council’s belief that homeopathy was not an effective treatment for any health condition.)
