I've only had one experience of homeopathic medicine. My father went to Boots to get some anti-catarrh medicine for me and came back with what turned out to be a bottle of homeopathic pills. According to the instructions the child dose was half that of the adult dose, which surely makes it TWICE as strong? When I explained to my father what homeopathy actually was he thought I was joking. He was under the impression - which I think is very widespread - that homeopathic medicines were merely natural remedies containing none of those nasty 'chemicals'.
