Yeah, I wonder why that is? I'm not making any such accusations against homeopathy. I think Malik and her colleagues, for the most part, honestly believe their water treatments work. My point is just that there is no scientific evidence that they do, and she has basically agreed, saying that each "treatment" is so individualized that controlled efficacy trials are impossible. ( I don't see why that should be the case, but never mind). I don't see why homeopaths have to run down "conventional" (ie scientifically supported) medicine when promoting their own practices. If their treatments were so effective, they should stand on their own merits.
