Patrick : I freaking lost it at a vague sense of unease or a touch of the nerves.

MadaxeMunkeee : I dunno, but I use homeopathy everyday to heal mild dehydration

Artstux : Strong stuff!? That's a whole drop of lager in there- it needs to be much more dilute, you lightweight!!

Lenier Ashcraft : Homeopathic lager = bud light?

Zarkow : I once dropped a pill in the ocean. No animals died of an overdose.

Liz Quilty : Wow, i had no idea, I believe i will have to switch too homeopathy right away!

J. Li : Homeopathics: ✔️ Anti-vaxxers: ✔️ Moon landing deniers: ✔️ Climate change deniers: ✔️ Alright guys it's settled. I don't want to live on this planet anymore.

xanthromera : I hope to see the day when homeopaths are prosecuted for putting peoples lives in danger.

sn0wchyld : What UTTER drivel. The entire reason that the crystals failed to save that mans life is the docs didn't bloody realize that they're suppositories. Didn't they see that episode of american dad where steves game character WAS BROUGHT BACK FROM THE DEAD by a natural suppository administered by someone who was close to him in life, namely, his sister?! Definitive proof ON CAMERA that crystals save lives! ALL YOU HOMYOPATH DENIRES NEDE TO GET A GOSH DAM EDUCASHON!

Peter in Private : There's nothing wrong with homeopathic treatments as long as you get the dosage right. Just use it once every ten million years.

A smoking ChickenFish : His chakra's are fading, he's going to need some crystals

Ferenc Szabo : I watched this and didn't think it was very funny. Then a friend of mine edited it down to 5 seconds and I chuckled a bit. I accidentally spotted a freeze frame and laughed even more. So then I took that freeze frame, extracted only 3 pixels and this is making by belly hurt. I can't stop laughing. I'm afraid I'll rupture if I look at only 1 pixel.

Patrick Flanagan : They forgot "frequency", "energy," and "toxins."

Michele MacDonald : Damn, you just have to admire the elegance of the writing.

Maceta : 1:50 I love how at this point it basically becomes a rant on homeopats. They do it in other sketches too.

Maxx Kroes : If water really had a memory, just think of all the pee in it over the years, feel cured yet?

roflex2 : Did you hear about the guy who overdosed on guys homoeopathic solution? He forgot to take his dose... Think about it.

demolazer : Brilliant, classic satire

Lizzi Burgess : I wonder if my laptop remembers how funny this was each time I watch it, and makes it funnier..?

Patrick : @slicksps there is no such thing as alternative medicine. if it works, then it is medicine. the only alternative to medicine is non medicine.

Roy Mosby : Actually, would't a homeopathic lager be used for sobriety?

Doomsy : Homeopathic doctors should live in homeopathic houses aka dog houses.

agentc0r3 : For years now I have made homeopathic birth control in my garage. ... We are about to have our 4th child. I might not be making it strong enough.

MagicalMelan : Shame homeopathic lager doesn't work, think of the money I'd save!

Patrick : there is no such thing as alternative medicine, there is either medicine, or non medicine.

Patrick : i dont know what funnier. the video or all the homeopathic believers pathetically trying to stand up for their beliefs in the comments

Peppy Ben Ben : I am a vet, and I have to deal with homeopathic nut jobs all the time. This video has made my day. No actually, it has made my year!

PlasmaMongoose : Why do you think the airlines don't allow more than 100ml of any fluid when you board a plane anymore, it's due to the threat of homeopathic semtex.

TheDreadfulCurtain : I love this sketch it is so good. Just brilliant, my favourite anti woo comedy sketch ever.along with Rainbow rythmns from Peep Show. I would like to see them make some more sketches again.

Patrick : @pellevinken it doesnt matter what you say. they take facts and twist them to fit their agenda. You say that the scientific community has proven that it doesnt work and the idiot will say "that is more proof that it DOES work because they want to cover up the truth so they can sell more of their big pharma poisons." see they will take anything that disproves their stupidity and say that it is more proof that it works otherwise science wouldnt be trying so hard to say it doesnt.

arcadiaenlightened : whoa- that's strong stuff

Kyle Delaney : What does A&E mean in this context?

Peppy Ben Ben : They should have tried some distance Reiki – he wouldn't have died then!

spider5600 : Just need Dara O Briain to burst in to that pub at the end and yell "Its Just Water!"

JammyTurtle : homeopathic lager...don't they call it fosters now?

thaddeus buttmunch : FORGET the Horoscope-what's his Chinese Birth Sign?

xgeneric99 : It's pretty much what psychology is.

ChucklesTheSane : Excellent vid. Anyone who believes that garbage should gracefully accept that they know nothing about basic chemistry, atomic structure, and effective medicine.  Homeopathy STILL requires idiocy of chemistry even at an 1800's understanding, and requires that kind of ignorance to be perpetuated for it to "function" - how can homeopathy work "better" than a placebo when placebo effect is the best it could claim?  You might as well save your money and go "Christian Science" to be able to use the no-cost prayer alternative - both operating upon the same principle of wishful thinking. If any of that bullshit worked better as actual medicine, then we'd probably be using them by now rather than having to rely on cherry-picked stories for efficacy. These are the last surviving remnants of the old USA snake oil salesmen...aside from the soft drink companies that started out as "health tonics". At that point of following junk, you might as well pop open a Coca-Cola to have some actual flavor to your medicine.  :P

Kasey Escape : RW's delivery of the final line is perfect.

Lori De : You will never have to put natural Drs. in jail we have the FDA, more than 90% of perscription drugs have to be taken off the market after enough people die, look at the commercial adds after they sell you the products, they have a voice come on to tell you the contraindications, stating this may cause sudden death, give you suicidal tendencies, make you suseptible to disease because of lowering the immune system, reputible natural medicine works with the immune system, has no contraindications, is hypoallergenic, I know many women including myself that cured their breast cancer issues without the slash and burn conventional methods, which are used not because they work, because of high profit, as well as high death, I choose prayers acupuncture, and plant and herbs any day to chemicals that come with sudden death warnings.

Kenneth Gay : this is brilliant.

Aleek91 : Just like religion :O

calamagrostis88 : What is scary is this kind of thinking is so widespread.  And while the mainstream media usually does not spread this non-sense, they also do very little to challenge it and help people come around.

patu8010 : Are you comparing vaccination and homeopathy? The other one works (or at least it has a sound logic behind it) and the other one doesn't (like I said, you're just drinking water).

TheHue's SciTech : No, homeopathy is far worse than that: it's just water.

JDLupus : "Whilst the memory of a long-lost drop of onion seems infinite, it somehow forgets all the poo it's had in it." ~Tim Minchin.

Sebastian Bengtsson : I, for one, think it's wonderful that you take the step to becomming a naturopath. We need more people like you so that the people who are stupid enought to believe in your utter nonsense can get sick, die and never bother humanity again - instead of going to a real doctor, getting healthy and keep on spewing stupidity around the world. Thank you, IMissElla, for helping rid the world of the plague known as Stupidity.

CaptainLumpyDog : Whoa. That's strong stuff.

Liquid Audio : Priceless! Finally someone pulling the necessary piss out of crystal and homeopathic bullshit. Absolutely classic :)

Diamond Song : What's worse is that there really are homeopathic hospitals in the UK. Funded by our National Health Service. The government says that the decision for homeopathic funding isn't science based, but that it is "important" for "patient choice". Idiots.
