I had no idea that the FDA regulated these treatments. That surprises me. I am glad that they are mostly side-effect free!

very informative. I knew you should take Vitamin C to stave off colds and such, but not Vitamin E – must start eating foods rich in that as well.

My family and I prefer traditional medcines over homeopathy remedies but this has opened my eyes to a new thought and concept.

Thanks for the tips - I've caught a bit of a bug this week, and I'll definitely be trying some of these today. I've tried a few over the counter medicines that haven't helped much at all.

I know homeopathy sounds crazy, but if you don't use the remedies correctly they will not work. I started using it about a year ago and have been healed from lactose intolerance, soy intolerance, sensitivity to radiation (cell phones, laptops, etc.), strep throat (without antibiotics), bronchitis (without antibiotics), migraines, etc. I've started a blog documenting how I use homeopathy and my honest experiences on what works and what doesn't. http://www.livingcrunchy.com/category/homeopathy/

Most of the comments against this saying this is fake is probably by allopathy doctors who have no idea what is going on in tne body.."Talk to your doctor about this and that"- We have to go talk to them about diseases and they look and keep typing in a computer. They are so worried that people might resort to alternative medicine. So what if homeopathy is like a placebo - allopathic medicines can have serious side effects starting from dizziness to death. And ocourse they are also made of chemicals. Check how many people on the internet have complained about common cold, flu, sinus, migraine, abdomen pain..If you "real" doctors have no clue about all this and can only operate based on ultrasound, MRI results..you are all FAKE. You have no time to discuss with patients about symptoms at all..We can go and check and get these medicines directly and try them..unlike your HMO and stupid appointments that take us months together to get rid of a stomach ache.

I can't believe that Whole Foods would spread such dangerous misinformation. Homeopathy has been disproved by science countless times and there is no evidence to support it. It is only a placebo effect. Placebo effects make people feel better but they don't cure them. They distract from the underlying problem and prevent people from getting much needed treatment. HOMEPPATHY IS A DANGEROUS FRAUD!

I can't believe people are talking about this stuff like it is real. You are buying water in a vial or compressed starch in a pill. This means you are literally buying a placebo when you buy this stuff. Did you stop to think why it doesn't react with any other medications, herbs, or foods? There is nothing to it. It is empty wasted money/space. Another common remark I'm seeing amongst the comments is "I believe in this stuff". This is totally absurd. Medicine does not require belief. While the mind is powerful and a positive attitude can increase the outcome (why placebos can have an effect), there is still solid biology behind every real medication. Nothing in homeopathy is a proven science. It is pure and utter garbage. You may as well just eat a spoon full of sugar and convince yourself that it is medicine. At least that would be cheaper. Hey, it isn't my money. Enjoy throwing yours away on something that is less than snake oil. At least in an emergency situation you could burn snake oil for heat. I guess you could drink homeopathic medicine for hydration. ::shakes head at the ignorance::
