Why am I looked at like a criminal.....

.....when I walk into a Swiss pharmacy and try to get actual MEDICINE to help my son's teething? Why....in the global capital of pharmaceutical development.....do they try to sell me stuff made from freakin' herbs? Why - when I ask for something that was developed by a scientist rather than a botanist - do i get looked at as if I were about to sell him into slavery?

At three am, when my little boy is unhappy and wants to sleep, I want something that has been PROVEN to work. In the words of the great Tim Minchin - "You know what they call alternative medicine that has been proven to work. Medicine."

Anyway.....live and let live. If homeopathy and herbal treatments work for you, I'm very happy. But please - let me make the choice for science without being castigated for it.

Thanks for listening
