Sure, there's a reason it works--The placebo effect. The placebo effect is real enough; it's a significant variable in drug testing which is why a placebo is always administered. Try a homeopathic remedy on an animal, which isn't subject to the placebo effect, and you'll see how worthless these concoctions are. For example, give a horse a homeopathic tranquilizer, and it won't quiet down one bit. It will still step on your foot, bite you, or kick you in the head; may even be more likely to do so because you annoyed it by forcing this stuff down it's throat. Water molecules don't "remember" what was desolved in it, and pass that data along to other water molecules. Geesh!
