Kaiser Permanente sells homeopathic remedies

Sigh. Some of you may have read my gripe about trying to find zinc lozenges and finding the shelves full of homeopathic products noting 2X under how much zinc was in the product. The pharmacist said that could not be translated into mg because there was no way to know what was in the lozenges. I hadn't noticed "homeopathic" on the label. I assume 2X means diluted twice.:rolleyes:

Besides Zicam (yep that's one) there was Coldeze (yep, homeopathic as well)at Bartells and at Wallgreens. I was in the pharmacy at Kaiser yesterday getting a prescription filled and there on the shelf was Coldeze. :mad:

I was going to complain online since the pharmacy tech couldn't help and instead I found a K-P page saying talk to your doctor and describing all that crap about homeopathic theory and whatever. Not one word about it being nonsense even politely worded, just check with your doctor.

Homeopathy Topic Overview

Some critics of homeopathy believe that there is so little active substance in a solution that any benefits from treatment are likely not because of the substance but because you are thinking it is effective (placebo effect).
It is important to tell your medical doctor if you decide to use homeopathic remedies.

Evidence based medicine by popular demand. Heaven forbid they might discourage a paying customer by rejecting crap medicine.
