Yes, sorry for the "allopathic" moniker. I meant "scientific medicine", i.e. non-homeopathic.
Last time she prescribed some 30C phony medication, which means it has one ml in a sphere 212 light years long. I wonder if they actually take the time and effort to do the dilution or just skip it and use pure sugar. But of course that would be fraud...
The thing is, our pediatrician knows her basic stuff and explains things nicely. We have gone to other (reputed) doctors to get a second opinion and they have all prescribed lots of unnecessary things which have done nothing either, and our child has only had the usual colds and fevers. If she had anything more serious (god forbid) we would go to a specialist, so we just tolerate the quack homeopathic thing as an eccentricity. And double-check everything on MedlinePlus and similar places. Which is not a bad practice anyway.
