You should compare to not using anything if you want to see if it has any effectiveness. In my experience it is very effective for treating certain type of wounds and skin conditions.
What's wrong with having a choice of picking a more natural remedy that does in fact work very well instead of,
First, we’ll use the example of remedies made from plant sources. The first step is to create what is called a mother tincture out of gathered crude material from a specific plant. A mother tincture made from a specific plant source is processed by macerating the plant, or a particular part of a plant then letting it soak in an alcohol water solution for quite some time.
So, zero evidence to support claims that homeopathy is being conspiratorially suppressed by big pharma, just your own personal opinion. That's cool, just confirming what I already thought was your position.

Actually, the only proof I would state (Well Documented) is Big Pharma in league with politicians, lobbyists, corps. etc that have consistently lied, manipulated studies and new drugs that have proven to be harmful to the point of harming and/or killing us with no repercussions or fines that don't take away profit but comes down to a cost of doing business.

If homeopathy had one study that proved it was as effective as traditional medicine, that would be enough.
I gave one on the first page. Case closed

You do actually understand how 'small' these doses are in homeopathy yeah?
Active ingredients in medical drugs are vastly higher, so I still don't see your claim standing up.
NHMRC did not consider any of these types of evidence:
• laboratory studies;
• studies in animals;
• studies in humans without a specific health condition, including:
–– studies investigating whether or not homeopathy is effective for preventing health conditions;
–– evidence about homeopathic ‘vaccines’; and
–– whether homeopathy is good for general health and wellbeing.
The focus of the assessment of the evidence was on the effectiveness of homeopathic medicines,
not their safety.......
The researchers searched databases of health publications to find systematic reviews published in English between 1 January 1997 and 3 January 2013. For each health condition, the research group collated the findings of the systematic reviews and assessed the quality and reliability of the evidence. The findings are described in detail in the Overview Report.

I think some people are getting "homeopathy" confused with "naturopathy". If you make a tincture of ginseng, or thyme, or whatever herb, yes, that might be effective in treating some ailments, and that is naturopathy; if you make the same tincture, and then dilute it with water over and over again, believing that the water has a memory of the original tinctures benefits, that is homeopathy, and it really makes no sense, as water has no abilities to "memorize" properties of anything that might be soaked in it.
