Two centuries ago, it was wonderful.
Not because it was effective, but because it was inert.
Going to a homeopath meant that you weren't getting killed by establishment medicine.
Then the 19th century rolled around, the AMA and the like concocted the modern MD, which had one of the two distinguishing features of what it meant to be a "Doctor", and displaced what existed before. (It requires acquiring significant knowledge in a field, but not contributing, distinguishing it from "real doctors." Oddly, they have that phrase backwards.)
Anyway, homeopathy was an historically important safe place, whose time has come and gone.
