Yes, homeopathy is a placebo effect. Homeopathy lacks biological and scientific plausibility, and researchers have found that any research suggesting benefits of homeopathy suffered from research bias and flawed scientific methods. There is no evidence that this treatment works, and ongoing homeopathic work has been criticized as being unethical because of this lack of evidence.
Homeopathy is simply a placebo effect. Homeopathy is considered a pseudoscience and an alternative medicine. Homeopathic remedies are found to be no more effective than a placebo. Homeopathy lacks biological plausibility and the axioms of homeopathy have been refuted for some time.The postulated mechanisms of action of homeopathic remedies are both scientifically implausible and not physically possible.
I believe people should ask their doctors about homeopathy to get the best explanation, but for the most part I do feel it is a placebo effect. There have been studies and tests of these products without any hint of them actually working. They are on the market simply because people continue to buy them.
No, homeopathy is not simply a placebo effect because homeopathy can do a good job actually helping people learn coping strategies. Homeopathy can help people learn relaxation techniques. It can help them make an ergonomic evaluation of the way they are living and find ways for improvement. It is far from junk science.
