from colds and cough to arthritis and cancer.

last two hundred years, homeopaths have cured meningitis,

venereal diseases using homeopathic remedies alone.
Homeopathic remedies are effective against viruses, but
antibiotics are not. In 1918, the worldwide influenza epidemic
killed over twenty million people, and over five hundred
thousand in the United States. At a time when survival rates
were 70% with conventional medicine, they were 98% with
