Homeopathy is often misleading and can be dangerous. If it was as simple as being a different lifestyle choice, it wouldn't be that big of a deal. But there are very real dangers with it, and they prey on the ignorant and uninformed. They use shitty scare tactics and misinformation to push their products, and over 99% of the products are just useless junk or sometimes harmful junk. They know that people like you will read bullshit on the internet or be told bullshit by your chiropractor/shaman/witch doctor/part time accountant acquaintance, and spend money on a placebo and declare that actual medicine is poison and your herbal remedy cures all kinds of ailments. They know that you're dumb enough to rely on self diagnosis and self treatment using your own personal experiences, so they don't have to provide any proof that the product works.

And I know that you'll take that and somehow assume that by saying that, I'm hyperbolically admitting that everything Big Pharm must be great. But that's not the case either. Both have their respective problems. I'm not a fan of either, but at least one of them is regulated and rigorously tested and the effects are known so people know to expect that long crazy list of side effects should they choose to take it. Your gypsy bullshit is not.

Here's a list of people who probably wish they knew the dangers of the natural health alternatives they were taking. At least the ones who were only injured and not dead.

Effects of Homeopathy: 368,379 people killed, 306,096 injured and over $2,815,931,000 in economic damages. If you click on Scientific Studies, it will give you links to scientific studies associated with the harm that was done.
