a homeopathic medicine that tastes bad, really bad. You don't feel like having it but you have to take it in order to get well or improve your health. these are generally liquid like Bryonia or solid like Ginko Biloba.
Sam: hey, doc! i've got this really bad cold.
Doctor (homeopath): alright son, here's this liquid called Bryonia. have one dose now along with half a cup of water.
Sam (after taking the medicine): Holy shit! what was that? It should be called homeo-pathetic rather than homeopathic.
