Systematic Review of Plant-Based Homeopathic Basic Research: An Update.

CONCLUSIONS:  Regarding research design, future trials should implement adequate controls to identify specific effects of homeopathic preparations and include systematic negative control experiments. Further external and internal replication trials, and control of influencing factors, are needed to verify results. Standardised test systems should be developed.

[Daily Maverick] Ivo Vegter finds pharmacists selling quackery more credible than homeopaths, as he wrote in two columns about ethical pharmacists. A true scientist has an open mind, hence should be careful about labelling ostensible "otherness" from the (kn)own paradigm as quackery or ludicrous.

Naturopathy is quackery. If you doubt this, consider that you can't have naturopathy without homeopathy. What's even worse is when naturopaths subject autistic children to quackery like CEASE therapy. Expecting any naturopathic regulatory board to investigate quackery in naturopathy is the proverbial fox guarding the henhouse. The post The British Columbia College of Naturopathic Physicians investigates naturopaths using CEASE therapy on autistic children appeared first on RESPECTFUL INSOLENCE.

Orac loves to bask in the adulation of his "fans." This time around, one of the old men of quackery, Gary Null, has decided that he really, really doesn't like science-based medicine. Orac was sufficiently amused to revise, update, and expand his previous post providing Null with some not-so-Respectful Insolence. The post Orac basks in the adoration of Gary Null (revised and greatly expanded) appeared first on RESPECTFUL INSOLENCE.

CONCLUSION:  There was insufficient evidence to attribute any of the four assessed symptoms clearly to VM. Though non-significant, a high LR was observed for "itching amelioration in open air" (symptom 3). Symptoms in the homeopathic materia medica for VM are perhaps over-represented. More research of this nature is warranted. PMID: 29783275 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
