    I watched something a while back about an ancient cleanse using the poison from a poisonous frog (tree frog?) Can't remember what it was called. I didn't think highly of it.
     
  5. We might take the snake to a vet though.
     
  6. A piece of homeopathy trivia: J.D. Salinger, the author of “catcher in the Rye” was a practitioner and student of homeopathy. One concept he embraced was that each person he worked with had a sort of signifier and if you got that key substance wrong nothing you concocted going forward would work. Maybe that’s what happened to my dog?

    Does it have any scientific backing?
     
  8. No. It’s homeopathy! One other interesting thing was that this was well before the internet so practitioners had enormous libraries of books and substances.
    Salinger also followed a very strict almost raw diet. This was in the 50s, 60s and 70s. You know how everything Old is new again.

    Ok but this is not a thread to debate homeopathy and modern medicine

    Science would tell us it doesn't work or it does work and we could argue with papers from here and there all day long. It doesn't change the fact that people have seen and felt results using homeopathy for many years.

    Science hasn't been able to figure out a lot of things, doesn't mean they aren't real or don't exist or don't work.
