RationalWiki's 2018 Fundraiser

There is no RationalWiki without you. We are a small non-profit with no staff — we are hundreds of volunteers who document pseudoscience and crankery around the world every day. We will never allow ads because we must remain independent. We cannot rely on big donors with corresponding big agendas. We are not the largest website around, but we believe we play an important role in defending truth and objectivity.

If everyone seeing this today donates $5, we will meet our goal for 2018.

Fighting pseudoscience isn't free.
We are 100% user-supported! Help and donate $5, $20 or whatever you can today with PayPal Logo.png!

Isopathy is a subform of homeopathy invented by Johann Joseph Wilhelm Lux in the 1830s. Rather than "like cures like" (which is based around symptoms), isopathy uses "exactly the same thing cures the thing". i.e., isopathic preparations are made from the actual cause of the illness or from its byproducts, such as pus.[1] This pus remains highly diluted, of course. Most "homeopathic vaccines" are made this way, differing from normal vaccines by the potentisation process and the fact that live, rather than inactivated pathogens, are used.
