Suggestions for homeopathic medicine responses
So my mom has been having knee problems, and she went to an acupuncturist, which seems to have helped with the sharp pains she had been having. Or at least it coincided with the pain lessening. Separate from that she just found out she has osteoporosis. I'm not sure what other treatments or medication she's getting, but just today she went and got a homeopathic bone density treatment. I tried the usual "it's basically just water, they dilute it so much there's essentially none of the original ingredient left, and that ingredient probably wouldn't have helped anyway" but i'm not too good at articulating this sort of thing.
What sorts of information would anyone recommend I pass on to her to inform her about this stuff? I know there are videos out there and some Penn and Teller's BULLSHIT things, but i'm afraid those sorts of things might just get dismissed out of hand before she watches them in their entirety.
