Too many people dismiss homeopathy as a placebo, not stopping to think what a remarkable thing a placebo is. How is it that one can cause a change in one's health simply by believing something is a cure? It's as remarkable as fixing a television set by turning it to a different channel. Our familiarity with the concept of placebo has made it invisible to us. The placebo has become the shadow of medicine, the anti-medicine, when it should point us to a new concept of medicine, one that breaks the materialistic mindset that has imprisoned medicine for too long. I think a medicine that does not understand the placebo will never understand homeopathy, not because homeopathy is a placebo, but because homeopathy also passes beyond the material. The placebo is the doorway to homeopathy.
