Homeopathic Harms vol 5: interactions
I might be a little quiet for the next wee while due to some unforeseen circumstances, but to tide you over here’s the next installment in the Homeopathic Harms series by @SparkleWildfire – interactions.
In the next installment of our series on the harms of homeopathy, I want to talk about interactions. I’ve covered this a bit in the past, but let’s have a look at this area in a bit more detail.
We all hopefully know by now that homeopathic medicines pretty much have no trace of active ingredient in them by now. Do we need to worry about drug interactions with homeopathic remedies?
Can homeopathic medicines interact with conventional medicines?
The obvious answer is no. Magic Sugar Water Pills are highly unlikely to affect any conventional medicines. There’s a lack of actual evidence to prove this, but I think it’s pretty safe to rely on a theoretical basis here. So that’s great, right, blog post over and see you later. If only it were that simple.
Read the rest over at A Healthy Dose of Skepticism.
