LOL. Yeah. I´ve walked through that logic and it never made sense. Is it hard for you to devote so much time to studying homeopathic remedies? Would you use them for the placebo effect?

I do like Bach Floral Rescue Remedy...but I believe in making the placebo effect work for me. :D

I'm not sure I want to tangle with homeopathy as a placebo delivery mechanism, because of the culture surrounding it. Still, if a patient comes to me specifically asking for a homeopathic remedy, I will prescribe one based on my training. If I have the training, I can use it, even if I am not a believer. I have the idea that I will charge a rather high rate for on-demand homeopathic prescribing because the process of selecting a remedy is so laborious. I have not completely dismissed the possibility that I too will see a "miracle" and become convinced. As of right now, I much prefer flower remedies. The method of selection is less time-consuming and possibly more therapeutic. I am not certain that I will ever knowingly give a placebo, aside from a harmless remedy specifically demanded by a patient. It seems like there is almost always a bona fide nutrient that could help with any patient's condition. If presented and dosed correctly, anything that a person takes (or does) may have the beneficial placebo response in addition to the physiological response.
