It is slow to act

Not really. Homoeopathy is fast acting in acute conditions such as infections, fever, diarrhea, etc. The chronic and old diseases take a long time to treat due to its long existence, hence homoeopathy has been labelled as slow acting. . One must know that homoeopathy is faster in the treatment of conditions such as allergy, asthma, eczema, migraine, arthritis.

Homoeopathy is useful only for the chronic conditions and has no role for acute ailments.

Homoeopathy is a great alternative medicine for acute diseases. In fact, almost 50% of our practice (at the center for scientific homoeopathy) consists of acute ailments varying form cough-cold-fever to otitis media, pneumonia, tonsillitis, hepatitis, sinusitis, etc.

When it comes to handling infections, nothing can beat antibiotics

This misbelief is an example of mass ignorance in the hi- tech era that we are living in. Over an again, thousands of practitioners world over, have repeatedly and regularly observed that infections of all kind including the bacterial infections, respond beautifully to homoeopathy and no antibiotics are required for most of such conditions. It is in rare cases when the infection is very massive and the body has lost the vitality to recover, probably antibiotics are required in addition to homoeopathy.

One, day homoeopathy will be recognized as a latest generation antibiotic measure.

Homoeopathy is more placebo effect and faith healing...

Scientific double blind studies have indicated that homoeopathy is far above the placebo effect. The effect of homoeopathy medicine has been observed millions of time, which cannot be labeled as placebo effect. New born babies, infants, animals such as lions, dogs, etc. have shown healing effects of homoeopathy, which goes against the placebo effect. Saying that homoeopathy is placebo, in the light of above facts, is not just a misbelief but a prejudice.

Homoeopathy can only help functional problems such as pain, weakness, where there are no structural changes in the body.

Homoeopathy has proved its efficacy for the treatment of structural pathology. Numerous documented cases where the reversal of the structural pathology has taken place indicating the depth of homoeopathy action . Disease with structural changes like Pneumonia patch, effusion, amoebic liver abscess, renal failure etc. all improve structural with homoeopathic treatment..   The skeptics should keep the eyes open to evaluate the documented cases.

Homoeopathy is practiced by some quacks and those who have no scientific back-ground...

Well, homoeopathy in most parts of the world is practiced by the qualified homoeopaths & allopaths, the practitioners of the modern medicine. The founder of homoeopathy, Dr. Samuel Hahnemann, MD was a German scientist. And most of the masters and the pioneers in the past were enlightened allopaths.
