I think that I had also the same opinion about Homeopathy that it is a hoax. When I was a 17 year years old boy I had corns in one of my fingers and was trouble some, some body told me to try Homeo for it , I took it few doses and the corn vanished within a wek.Again when I was 38 years old man I got about 5 corns on my foot it was painful and tried all the allopathy even the corn caps etc they asked me to get them removed surgically, but again I remembered my past experience and took homeo pathy treatment and you would not belive that they all vanished with n a forthnight,so surely it works and is not a hoax.But I have met people with IBS and took homeopathy treatment but it did not cure them ,so although I am a IBS sufferer and would not like to try homeo at the moment.

Homeopathy is a hoax1) You don't know what you took was homeopathy. It may have been "tainted" with real medicine.2) Conditions can and often do heal spontaneously.

I started homeopathy in fall of 2004. I went to a world-renowned classical homeopathist who was also an M.D. from Stanford University. He recommended a remedy based on my overall constitution. The first one did not work. The second and third one did not work. I don't know what brought me back to him--after three failures, I could have given up--but, I went back and gave it another shot. Thank god I did. The fourth remedy seems to have made all the difference.I now consider myself in IBS remission. I haven't been on this chat board for over a year because I no longer have much to complain about. ALL of my IBS symptoms are gone. I will only on rare occasion have a revisit of a symptom, but it is short-lived and mild--something that I would expect in the range of "normal." Example: mild bloating or mild loose stools without urgency or pain, only once every couple months.I have also eliminated eggs and dairy from my diet and that has helped tremendously too. But, I wouldn't say that food elimination was the only thing that mattered because I was off those foods for years without it making a significant difference. It has only been since the homeopathy that my digestion has healed this well.From my research, there is usually an 80% improvement in symptoms from homeopathy. Obviously, you need to be taking the right remedy for the symptoms to improve, so don't give up. My main reservation about homeopathy was the expense, but I have to say that it was worth it since I am no longer in pain anymore.I also advocate for a whole foods diet, elimination of trigger foods, and additional gut healing through nutritional supplements. I recommend seeking the help of a nutritionist for advice specific to your symptoms and lifestyle.

I have treated my IBS soley with homeopathy and it does work. Medicine can not always cure what is happening within the body. Sometimes it can only help with the symptoms. I don't think anyone should rule out homeopathy. If it works for some people than don't mock it until you try it.

If you hadn't taken it, you would have still gotten better, just a coincidence.
