Many people do not seem to be able to grasp the simple fact that homeopathy medicines are not made using dilution alone. Dilution alone would do nothing whatsoever without SUCCUSSION. Succussion is conducted between each numerical potency, i.e. between a 1c and a 2c, a 2c and a 3c, etc.

Placebo effects in homeopathy are no greater than in conventional medicine
