Understanding homeopathy.

Author information

Philadelphia College of Pharmacy and Science, USA.


Interest in homeopathy is growing because of the costs and impersonality of modern medical care and the increase in infectious diseases that do not respond to allopathic medicine. Extreme dilutions are the main reason many scientists doubt the effectiveness of homeopathic products. Scientists have petitioned the Food and Drug Administration to hold homeopathic products to the same standards as other drugs. While some studies support the efficacy of homeopathy, controlled clinical studies determining effective levels of dilution for these substances are needed.
