Homeopathy occasionally kills people.
Usually it is death by omission. The patient has a disease that requires real medicines like a streptococcal infection and instead gets homeopathy.
The family of a Calgary woman facing criminal charges in connection with the death of her seven-year-old son say they're in shock over the allegations of neglect. The boy, Ryan Alexander Lovett, died last March after suffering from a strep infection which kept him bedridden for 10 days. Police allege his mother, Tamara Lovett, 44, chose to treat the bacterial infection with homeopathic herbal remedies instead of taking him to a doctor. That decision likely killed the child, police say.

The product contains Belladonna also known as deadly nightshade, at Belladonna 12X which is diluted 1:10 12 times, so there could be some deadly nightshade in the product. You have to get to 12C (12 1:100 dilutions) before all molecules of the substance are gone.
There is NO scientific link between homeopathically-prepared belladonna, or Hyland's Baby Teething Tablets, and seizures . In fact, the first symptom of an overdose of homeopathic belladonna would be dry mouth.
As if a teething baby is going to complain of a dry mouth.
But homeopaths are looking to the future. They want to make more corpses.
…epilepsy is not only about causing danger to the health and safety of the one suffering from it. Epilepsy can also ruin relationships, endanger driving and affect one's performance.
