YES: Yes, homeopathy has can be effective in first aid, acute, and chronic illness. It can be helpful when used in collaboration with conventional treatments, and can even be transformative in some cases. There are many illnesses for which conventional treatment has few or no options, yet homeopathy is both gentle and effective. See more at: http://www.Nationalcenterforhomeopathy.Org/.

As a medical doctor who has substantial experience treating patients with conventional western medicine, nutrition, herbal medicine etc. I am happy to say that homeopathy is my favorite healing modality. The cures catalyzed by homeopathy are the most impressive things I have seen in my 25 year plus medical career. See http://www.huffingtonpost.com/dana-ullman/swiss-homeopathy_b_1340506.html
