Then my allergies were acting up and I went to a drug store for an antihistamine. Next to them on the shelf were homeopathic allergy pills. They were less expensive than the allopathic so I thought "What the hey. I'll give it a try" expecting them to not work and I would have to return for a bottle of allopathic medicine. Instead, the pills worked. Not as well or for as long as an allopathic antihistamine, but it worked. I was quite shocked. Though I have never used a homeopathic med again, I am nonetheless no longer inclined to dismiss homeopathy completely. Placebos often seem to work. Our minds can make us sick. Our minds can make us well. To a point. Past that point, is where we need medical science. I do understand your perspective. I have extensive training in Reiki. Also, training in Therapeutic Touch. Yes. People do rush to judgement about what does and does not work. If you're interested, I think that's a side conversation. Edited March 15, 2020 by Jonathan H. B.
