1. Wholistic Medicine
2. Gentler system of medicine with no side effects
3. Strengthens immune system
4. Tried and Tested Medicines
5. Long lasting to permanent cure
6. Often avoids Surgery
7. Cost effective

Holism (or perhaps “wholism”) being the watchword of quackery that deceives patients into believing that the laws of nature can somehow be suspended on their account.Or, more accurately, no positive effect. Side effects sometimes include death and a reluctance to join the rest of humanity in the real world, which is also a death of sorts.Specifically, it strengthens immunity to contrary reason and evidence.Tried and tested, but still in widespread use despite repeated failures to show any effect beyond placebo.Long-lasting to permanent cure for anyone afflicted with an undesired attachment to reality.Often avoids surgery, but usually to the greater detriment of the patient.For any non-zero cost, zero effect means zero cost-effectiveness. Where both the cost and the effect are zero, cost-effectiveness is not defined because division by zero is not permitted (except maybe in homoeopathic circles when dealing with an infinitesimally small zero).

1. Homeopathy is a wholistic medicine because the concept of disease in homoeopathy is that disease is a total affection of mind and body, the disturbance of the whole organism. Allopathy focuuses on just physical body. It thinks mind, emotions have no or little effect on physical body. They kept on focussing on organs not the complete body.

2. Homeopathy is a gentle medicine with micro doses. High mateial doses in allopathy results in large no. of side effects, many resulting in thousands of deaths worldwide.

A study reported in the Journal of the American Medical Association found that conventional drugs kill about 106,000 Americans a year, and this figure is limited to patients that die in the hospital, so the actual figure is unquestionably much higher. That makes prescription drugs the fourth leading cause of death in the United States (after heart attack, cancer and stroke).

3. With the massive way antibiotics (kills healthy as well as bad bacteria) are being prescribed today they have suppressed and in no time going to destroy the immune system.

4. Homeopathic medicines have been tried and tested on healthy human beings. They are known, trusted, and reliable. Allopathic medicnes are tested mainly on animals before their use for human beings
Dr. Nancy Malik (July 22, 2008, 21:28:32 PM):
5. Homeopathy provides lasting cure. It enhances health and aims at well being rather than diminishing illness and absence of disease. Allopathy philosphy is that absence of disease is health.

6.There are number of diseases which are labeled as 'surgical', where homoeopathy works curatively and can avoid surgery except where tissue changes have occurred, or where there are congenital abnormalities.

7. Cheaper than allopathy
