This slideshow presents a brief overview of the history of homeopathic medicine in the United States. Homeopathy was formulated by a German physician more than 200 years ago and came to America in 1825. At its peak there were 22 homeopathic medical schools and more than 100 homeopathic hospitals in the U.S. Homeopathy in America experienced a decline in the mid-1900s and has made a strong resurgence since the 1970s.
Most of the images here are from postcards and old homeopathic medical texts that were printed from the mid-1800s to early 1900s.

First misrepresentation: that I addressed you personally when I made it clear it was to a group of homoeopathic deniers, operative word THEY. Second misrepresentation: that Homoeopathy has been disproven. It hasn't. Homoeopaths have their own, peer reviewed journals, their own standards, and a history of hundreds of years of proven efficacy. Third misrepresentation: that the burden of proof was shifted away from homoeopaths. No, and it never was, but as far as they're concerned, it never was shifted on to a bunch of pathological homeoeopathy haters either. Fourth misrepresentation: that my argument presented a series of logical fallacies when your obvious bias prevents you from ever being the judge of that. Fifth misrepresentation: that "the overwhelming evidence proves homoeopathy performs no better than a placebo" when the evidence in the homoeopathic threads HERE show how many times your ilk have ignored well designed studies that prove the opposite. Sixth Misrepresentation: That I appealed to authority. I made a comment to prove that many scientist were open to things beyond the unseen. You called those beliefs 'irrational', thereby setting YOURSELF up as an authority on that.
