Abstract

Even after 200 years, homeopathy has remained a highly disputed method. Its principles fly in the face of science. The totality of about 200 clinical trials fails to demonstrate its efficacy beyond placebo. Its use as a benign placebo is ethically unjustifiable. It follows that homeopathy cannot be recommended for use in medical routine.
