So how does that quackery called Homoeopathy medicine work? Apparently, their philosophy is that like cures like, or as Steve D. of Mad Art Lab explains:

[If] you have headaches, confusion, vomiting and/or diarrhea, a homeopath might prescribe a preparation of arsenicum album (arsenic) because, y'see, arsenic causes those same symptoms. Yeah.

But it gets better: a homoeopath believes that the more diluted the solution is, the more potent it is.

Wait, what? No, you read that right, and to make some sense of just how stupid this sounds, Steve decided to use Felicia Day to put in perspective just how diluted these "medicines" are.
