First, a hospital capable of holding 300 patients shall be constructed, with a total of ten sperate wings. Upon completion, thirty doctors will be ushered into the building, to disperse as they please. After a short period, the hospital wings will activate the sprinkler system for a short time and immediately isolate themselves from each other by means of automatic steel doors, regardless of the placement of each doctor. The doctors are then told via PA that they are permanently assigned to whatever wing they happen to be in. Each wing is then hit smartly with a cypress stick in the interest of the "succession" process.

Thanks to the natural memory of water, the inherent healing power of the doctors is now infused within every hospital wing, and they can now accept patients at full capacity.

Homeopathy - all the idiocy that fits http://www.ratbags....ment/homeopathy.htm
A rather mean description of an entirely credible science. [notmarkflynn, Jan 04 2006]

       A basic premise of homeopathy is that "less of a substance is likely to have more effect". So you only need one doctor. Also, make sure that the water you used is not distilled, otherwise you might cause an overdose...

       Actually a medical student might be even more effective. Or someone who's thinking about studying medicine.

       Surely this would simple create a cure for whatever symptoms doctors create?   

       Possibly a cure therefore for paying stupid amounts for medical insurance, reading magazines 'just because they were there' and general mistrust
