Same was true for a homeopathic potency and a digitalized clotrimazole information. Implications for pharmaceutical treatment and unwanted drug side effects are discussed. An experimental confirmation of these findings would coincide with a wide range of practical applications.

Although many of these interventions are safe and beneficial, some of them can be harmful.
