Homeopathy as 'Natural, Life-Force Based, Effective, Rational, Evidence-Based, Remarkable, Scientific Method' - Dodds, C. (ND Bastyr):

001. Dodds, C. (ND Bastyr 1993) states in "Homeopathy: A Time-tested Medicine For Today":

"homeopathy is a system of natural medicine [...wherein] health is a state of equilibrium maintained by a life force or essence [{LF, E}...when] the life force becomes disturbed [...it] expresses its imbalance in the form of symptoms [...which are] the outer expression of this inner state of [its] disturbance or disease [...] the role of homeopathy is to stimulate the life force [...] as the life force is restored to balance, the symptoms recede and the individual returns to a state of health [...] in 1810 Dr. Hahnemann [homeo.'s founder] published the 1st edition of the [homeo. bible] 'Organon of Medicine' [...] in it he outlined the principles of the art and science of healing [...homeo. is] an evidence-based system [...] and a reliable method of assessment and treatment [...its] a rational philosophy of healing and a scientific method of treatment."

Note: so, LF=E. We are promised by ND Dodds:

a. on his homepage:

"Dr. Cam Dodds is a licensed naturopathic physician with a focus in classical homeopathy. Homeopathy is a remarkable method of natural medicine effective in stimulating healing and restoring health."

b. and in "About Homeopathy":

"homeopathy is a safe, gentle, and effective method of treatment for both acute and chronic illness."

002. meanwhile, overall:

there is NO SCIENTIFIC SUPPORT for either a life force, or homeopathy's efficacy.
