I would have thought that if homoeopaths 'understand' how it works in the human body, they should be able to somehow replicate it in the laboratory. Unless there is no difference of course.

Homeopathic medicines stimulate your body's homeostatic mechanism so your body heals itself by dealing with the sources of your symptoms. This stimulus assists your system in clearing itself of any expressions of imbalance. The homeopath physician gives you a medicine which matches your symptoms as you experience them, and which takes into account you as a person - your individual characteristics emotionally as well as physically.

Would it be accurate then to say that you should be able to look at the body and see a stimulated homeostatic mechanism or that the body's response to disease/illness is greater after taking a homeopathic remedy? Would this be a good way of validating whether it is working or not?
