Hello PF; I've been reading these forums for a while having rediscovered a passion for science, a passion that I'd like to instill in my 3 & 1 yo boys as they get older... So first off, thanks in advance for a great site. My first post though has to do with me. I've spent many years on & off of several anti depressants and most recently ritalin for many reasons (details unimportant). At the urging of a family member with a similar diagnosis, I went and saw a Homeopathic Specialist. I have been very skeptical of alternative healthcare but to my extreme suprise, I have noticed many positive changes. In researching, I have trouble finding any concrete evidence on the issue and most of what I've read suggests remedys containing nothing more than a multi-vitamin could be just as much the reason for noticing change. What then, is the general thoughts of mainstream science on the effects of homeopathics? I've seen such a large divide amongst pros and cons but absolutely no neutral articles and I'd like to know what some of you think. Edit to add I forgot to elaborate on the question of, I know my body very well and I am very good at seeing changes from other drugs that I've taken, so why (knowing the logic behind dilution and being as skeptical as I am) would I be feeling different?
