  • Perhaps on a small scale for some.

  • Homeopathy relies on the placebo effect, so in a sense it can work for mild symptoms for some suggestible people. It is not a medicine per se however.

  • Homeopathy is a broad generalization of methods ranging from spiritual nonsense and scams, to methods not commonly practiced in the medical community, as they are less effective. We must first filter out nonsense, by identifying words such as "healing", "toxins", "replenish", "rejuvenate", and "detoxify", to name a few. Then we can speak of sincere homeopathy. In simple terms, homeopathy is to modern medicine as tylenol is to morphine. It should never be used as an alternative, but it does work to an extent, and may be a helpful addition if it does not conflict with other methods. An example of sincere homeopathy would be Saw Palmetto. It is a less effective version of Spironolactone, a medication used for lowering testosterone levels, among other things. It is used effectively by transitioning transgenders and women with PCOS.

Any leader or official that says it works is just showing that they think the average person is stupid and suggestible imho.
