Which is the bigger scam, homeopathy or reiki?



  2. I find it hard to choose, the concept of both is laughably illogical.
    Perhaps you should include accupunture in that too. I’m currently reading this article about this form of accupuncture that practices healing with colours (Colourpuncture LOL).
    Seriously: http://www.colorpuncture.org/article_1_mcroke.html
    Yes taking everything into consideration, Reiki is probably worse.

  3. in Homeopathy they at least say why they think it works. Everything they say is wrong but at least they give it a shot. Reiki is just pure magical thinking

  4. It’s hard to say, but I think Reiki actual is. They claim to be able to magically heal you from great distances. At least homeoquacks pretend to examine their victims.

    • Reiki is real, there is so much that we can’t see with our two eyes. I have experienced the energy by doing it on myself and it is real, one will not always feel it but I am telling you it is real and is essentially channeling universal life force energy. My only agenda is discovering and sharing the truth. Don’t let society and your upbringing confuse you from what you already know at a deep level within yourself. I know it sounds a bit off but a year and a half a go I would have felt the same as you. Open your mind have some faith in things you can’t see, if you do it will be life changing experience for you in time. All the best.

  5. Trying to decide – it’s kinda like being asked which is worse, being eaten by a lion or a bear, the end result is the same and it’s hard to find the silver lining… I’m gonna have to say that they are both as equally valid as their plausibility and end result in healing.
    edit: who would give me thumbs down? My conclusion is irrefutable regardless of which side of the issue you stand. I doubt it was any skeptics due to the conclusion being a major part of the scientific method, so it must be a scammer who does’t like the idea of these things having to at least be plausible.

  6. I dunno, um… which one has more patients? Which one indirectly causes more death or morbidity? The one with the higher figures, I guess.

  7. Homeopathy, because they pretend it’s science and money is wasted on researching it, governments fall for it and people are being sucked in by false advertising by real companies and pharmacies;
    some reiki practicioners work for free so at least they give you value for value.

  8. Well I would say homoeopathy as some friends of mine have gotten some very interesting and difficult to explain results using reiki.

  9. I would have to say Reiki is the bigger scam because at least homeopathy has a scientific sounding explanation, and allege to have “different” potions for different ailments. So at least they are working hard to scam you.
    Reiki just claim they can cure anything with the same “chi” magic. You would think they would have to learn different spells at least.

  10. I have just taken time to read a bit about both.
    As far as I can see the only people likely to benefit are those who are suffering from stress, anxiety.
    Reiki (about which I knew nothing)
    People use Reiki for relaxation, stress reduction, and symptom relief, in efforts to improve overall health and well-being. Reiki has been used by people with anxiety, chronic pain, HIV/AIDS, and other health conditions, as well as by people recovering from surgery or experiencing side effects from cancer treatments. Reiki has also been given to people who are dying (and to their families and caregivers) to help impart a sense of peace.
    Seems to be about learning to relax.
    Homeopathy (about which I knew very little)
    Reading about it made me laugh – which is a good thing to do…
    I was intrigued by succussion…
    Each succussion should be equivalent to the force exerted by an average healthy man when striking a hand-held phial (a firmly-stoppered test-tube or other laboratory container) forcefully against a firm surface. Hahnemann used a large leather-bound book. At each succussion the phial came to a brief stop, inertia making the liquid jump in the phial. Today machines imitate this action, but they need careful regulating and frequent maintenance to ensure that the succussion is standardized.
    To this end the engineers who built the equipment actually measured Michael Quinn’s arm from elbow to closed hand in order to build a mechanical arm of the same length. They measured how far up and down he moved the vial while vigorously succussing the vial, and how fast he moved. This data was used to produce the drive system which pounds the mechanical arm against a firm rubber pad from a height of five inches twenty times in two seconds. The force of the succussion is equivalent to dropping, by gravity alone without any muscular action, your closed fist against a table from a height of fifteen inches. The blow is powerful enough that you would never put your finger between the vial and the rubber pad!
    I find it difficult to take in. What if the machine mistimes it – too fast or too slow? What if it strikes from 5.25 inches 21 times in 2 seconds?
    Is everything then discarded?
    I am intrigued.
    Meanwhile I will lie on the sofa and have some hot water infused with Camellia sinensis (reputedly discovered by Shen Nung) – stirred but not shaken.

  11. I would have to say vaccines, knowing that the person picks a strain based on statistics, it’s like a lottery ticket.

  12. I would say homeopathy. People can easily go to a drug store and by these “remedies”. Reiki on the other hand seems a little harder to access.
