Yes, or just drink tap water, it's the same thing. I suspect the benefit from homeopathy is that the patient is given some quality time and a holistic assessment, which sadly is unlikely to be the case when you visit a GP.

I agree with you, I don't think it is the GPs fault, I am only allowed ten minutes per patient, 5 minutes for history and 5 minutes for examination - if doing a thorough chest and heart examination this should take ten minutes on its own. Nurse practioners apparantly get higher patient outcomes but so would I if I was allowed half an hour per patient
