Homeopathic medicine has always been part of the third world health care including Haiti. A better way to help serve these countries would be the inclusion of the locals already providing homeopathy to their communities.

You really hate the Haitian people don't you. You want them to die from untreated illness. Haiti already has an ineffective form of medicine with voodoo witch doctors, the last thing they need is a bunch of western witch doctors promoting sympathetic magic. What you are promoting is is inhuman and criminal.

That is totally the opposite, you have been brainwashed by greedy pharmacists and pharmaceutical products that often than not are just placebos. Your blind faith is commendable but not realistic. You are absolutely wrong about "Hating the Haitian People". I am Haitian-American. I am talking from experience and not from an armchair attitude.

Homeopathy is just placebo - water with no active ingredients. You are right, I have not been to Haiti but I do correspond with a US gentleman who was part of an aid group there. He saw first hand the damage done to the people of Haiti by homeopaths prescribing ineffective treatments.

I suggest that you learn a little bit more about homeopathic medicine, the true kind, not just the charlatans and their special interests agenda.

I appear to know more about it than you:

To understand why homeopathy cannot work you only need to see how it is made. Unlike herbal medicine where a measurable quatity of active ingredients is consumed, homeopathy is so dilute that it no longer contains any active ingredient:

To make homeopathy:

1: Dilute 1 ml of active substance into 99 ml of water then bang on a leather bible a couple of times (succussion)(= 1C)
2: Dilute 1 ml of the 1C liquid into 99 ml of water then succuss (= 2C)
3: Dilute 1 ml of the 2C liquid into 99 ml of water then succuss (= 3C)
4: Dilute 1 ml of the 3C liquid into 99 ml of water then succuss (= 4C)
5: Dilute 1 ml of the 4C liquid into 99 ml of water then succuss (= 5C)
6: Dilute 1 ml of the 5C liquid into 99 ml of water then succuss (= 6C)
7: Dilute 1 ml of the 6C liquid into 99 ml of water then succuss (= 7C)
8: Dilute 1 ml of the 7C liquid into 99 ml of water then succuss (= 8C)
9: Dilute 1 ml of the 8C liquid into 99 ml of water then succuss (= 9C)
10: Dilute 1 ml of the 9C liquid into 99 ml of water then succuss (= 10C)
11: Dilute 1 ml of the 10C liquid into 99 ml of water then succuss (= 11C)
12: Dilute 1 ml of the 11C liquid into 99 ml of water then succuss (= 12C)*
13: Dilute 1 ml of the 12C liquid into 99 ml of water then succuss (= 13C)
14: Dilute 1 ml of the 13C liquid into 99 ml of water then succuss (= 14C)
15: Dilute 1 ml of the 14C liquid into 99 ml of water then succuss (= 15C)
16: Dilute 1 ml of the 15C liquid into 99 ml of water then succuss (= 16C)
17: Dilute 1 ml of the 16C liquid into 99 ml of water then succuss (= 17C)
18: Dilute 1 ml of the 17C liquid into 99 ml of water then succuss (= 18C)
19: Dilute 1 ml of the 18C liquid into 99 ml of water then succuss (= 19C)
20: Dilute 1 ml of the 19C liquid into 99 ml of water then succuss (= 20C)
21: Dilute 1 ml of the 20C liquid into 99 ml of water then succuss (= 21C)
22: Dilute 1 ml of the 21C liquid into 99 ml of water then succuss (= 22C)
23: Dilute 1 ml of the 22C liquid into 99 ml of water then succuss (= 23C)
24: Dilute 1 ml of the 23C liquid into 99 ml of water then succuss (= 24C)
25: Dilute 1 ml of the 24C liquid into 99 ml of water then succuss (= 25C)
26: Dilute 1 ml of the 25C liquid into 99 ml of water then succuss (= 26C)
27: Dilute 1 ml of the 26C liquid into 99 ml of water then succuss (= 27C)
28: Dilute 1 ml of the 27C liquid into 99 ml of water then succuss (= 28C)
29: Dilute 1 ml of the 28C liquid into 99 ml of water then succuss (= 29C)
30: Dilute 1 ml of the 29C liquid into 99 ml of water then succuss (= 30C)

Repeat 170 more times to make the homeopathic flu remedy Oscillococcinum

*At 12C dilution there is likely to be not a single molecule left of the original substance.

Now illegally label product as containing the original active substance and sell to the gullible for a grossly inflated amount of money claiming it will cure everything from the common cold to death.

Doctors prescribed aspirin for years before they knew how it worked. Patients used it successfully for years before they knew now it worked.

Although at this moment it is not known exactly how homeopathy works, the public should be aware of the fact that it is an energy medicine based on quantum mechanics. It is not a medicine based on Newtonian physics or substance as conventional medicine is.
