  1. In my specialty, you don't really have to rely on the placebo effect, so preferences are entirely on the side of really working drugs.

    But this often happens with therapists. Some diseases-acute respiratory viral infections, for example-go well on their own and do not require treatment. But it happens that the treatment is very much required by the patients themselves, and persistently, with threats to complain to the Ministry of Health, sportloto and the league of sexual reforms! And then they are useless (but completely harmless!) sugar balls, which is all homeopathy by definition, come to the rescue. Any better than the patient will start prescribing antimicrobial chemotherapy drugs for himself, without observing either the indications or the dosage regimen.

    But when it comes to real problems, and the doctor promotes fufloferons instead of the accepted treatment, you need to run away from such a doctor-there can be no question of his professionalism. I always remember the story of how I was almost flunked by a teacher on the infectious diseases exam because I refused to recognize homeopathy as one of the treatment options for typhoid fever. It turned out that in addition to the first specialization (infectious diseases) that doctor also turned out to be a homeopath (certificates are issued to homeopaths at advanced training faculties at medical universities, a shame!)

    Here are such infectious diseases homeopaths avoid, if possible.
