Do homeopathic remedies benefit/ cure or is this just placebo effects- i ve heard opposite views from people who use it ?

In brief: Help is from placebo

Truly homeopathic "medications" are made by repeated dilutions, so that the ingredient is not really there anymore (just the "essence" of it remains).
That means there is no active ingredient left to cause any benefit. However, that also implies that the homeopathic "medicine" should be pretty harmless, unless some other non-homeopathic ingredient (such as some antihistamine chemical) was added.
