Being the scientist that I am, I did some research. To give the benifet of the doubt, I did research the above symptoms in peer reviewed journals. There are no peer reviewed studies for this at all. A lot of the items on this list seem ridiculous.

The only study in a reputable journal is “Cyctotoxic effect of ultra-diluted remedies on breast cancer cells.” It is in the Journal of Oncology. They did a double blind study to see if there was an effectiveness on homeopathic remedies on cancer cell growth. “Our findings suggest that ultra-diluted homeopathic remedies prescribed in the ‘Banerji protocol’ exert preferential cyto-
toxic effects against the human breast carcinoma cell linesMCF-7 and MDA-MB-231.” It does look promising for cancer treatment. THATS IT. Link to study : https://www.spandidos-publications.com/ijo/36/2/395

I will let you make your own determination on how ridiculous and unscientific this is.  I will not insult your intelligence by going through each individual list item.
