Is Homeopathy Effective for Treating Anything At All?
WRITTEN BY: Anthony Bouchard

For many people around the globe that try to avoid prescription drugs because of the seemingly endless side effects, homeopathy is just one solution that many people consider a viable alternative to these potentially harmful drugs.

Homeopathy is ultimately where one uses small doses of something that would usually cause a problem in order to treat it. For example, giving an insomniac a small amount of caffeine to try and treat the insomnia.

Despite being widely practiced in countries around the world for various reasons, it would seem that there is no real scientific evidence to support the theory that homeopathy actually works, which was first realized to be a thing in 1796 thanks to Samuel Hahnemann.
