In my constant search for the most bizare homeopathic treatment, I have found one just for the ladies. There is now a “treatment” for a yeast infection. It is called Yeast Gard. It has no side effects. Actually, it has no effects. Here are the “active” ingredients: Candida albicans 28x, Candida parapsilosis 28x, Pulsatilla 28x. Since I had no idea what these things are – I had to look them up. You’re gonna love this…. (From Wikipedia)
Candida albicans is a diploid fungus (a form of yeast) and a causal agent of opportunistic oral and genital infections in humans.
Candida parapsilosis is a fungal species of the yeast family that has become a significant cause of sepsis and of wound and tissue infections in immuno-compromised patients.
The genus Pulsatilla includes about 30 species, many of which are valued for their finely-dissected leaves, solitary bell-shaped flowers, and plumed seed heads. The anthers are bright yellow and the purple bell consists of sepals.
So to get rid of your yeast infection, they are going to give you some fungus (a form of yeast) and parts of some flower. It’s kinda like the “secret” – like cures like. Sure that sounds like a good idea to me. So let me guess – if I have a gunshot wound I should put some black powder on it?
But wait there’s more…. or should I say less. Note above that after each “active” ingredient there is this notation “28x”. What that means is that there is 1 part fungus in 1×10^28 parts of gel. Here is what 1×10^28 looks like. 10,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000. That is a lot of gel. Once again we see that homeopathy is a joke and cannot work.
