I suppose that approach (whatever floats one’s boat) is more palatable if you’ve not worked with desperate people who have spent so much on homeopathic and “other” remedies that they can’t pay for anything else . .  and have no time left to get effective help  :(


Besides, I do think there’s a difference between presenting modalities that have some bone fide evidence of efficacy and pseudoscience like homeopathy which has no independent evidence of efficacy other than making the wallet lighter.



JMHO & Very Disappointed,

We're open to all paths to recovery, Saundra.  We don't advocate for or against paths that may be of help.  If people want to try homeopathy is up to them.  Just like we don't advocate for or against religious paths to recovery, drug replacement therapies, etc.

Really???  Wow – I’m very, very sorry to see Latah Recovery Center allow transplanted quacks and charlatans access to vulnerable folks  :(  Homeopathy – which this quack specializes in – is a pseudoscience well-recognized to financially prey on the vulnerable and desperate.


This former veterinarian wackadoo also espouses a whole lot of flatly dangerous vet med . . . opinions, which is how I first came across him.


For those who aren’t aware, take a minute to ponder this about homeopathic remedies:


“There’s one exception to the rule that homeopathic products are basically sugar and water. Many of them list alcohol as an “inactive” ingredient <http://barkpost.com/petco-product-pulled-alcohol/?utm_source=facebook&utm_medium=post> . Because labeling laws on homeopathy are so different from regulations on real medicine <https://www.sciencebasedmedicine.org/how-should-the-fda-regulate-homeopathic-remedies/>  with proven ingredients, the only actual drug in a bottle of homeopathic medicine—ethanol, the same active ingredient in vodka—doesn’t have to be listed as a drug. This is not an isolated case.”




Very Disappointed,
