Homeopathy in the UK

Last modified on September 7th, 2017

It seems clear that the progress that has been made to preserve services is as a direct result of grassroots pressure. The NHS is after all a business and what the consumer wants will be provided. H:MC21 is actively building a grassroots campaign – no matter where you are, check out their website and see how you can get involved. www.homeopathyworkedforme.com)

This is no time for keeping our heads down. It’s a time for Big Ideas and Bold Action (BIBAs). News about a BIBA coming soon!

  • Was great to read Carols article, I am an internist practicing CAM in costa rica and have treated 30000 patients with amazing results, just yesterday i saw patients with chronic depression, fatty liver, fibromyalgia that all have improved 99% with CAM and homeopathy, It is so sad that the pharmaceutical companies have such a hold on physicians and have doctors ever asked themselves how absurd it is to have a pharm rep. visit you with his personalized studies of a drug he is selling you. It boggles the mind that doctors dont put the pieces together. Carol would love to chat with you sometime, Gracias

  • Is it not possible to publish/republish studies that were made before this (flawed) meta analysis?
    The sheer volume should help to counter what appears to be , according to this article, a campaign by various professionals with a vested interest against alternatives to allopathy.
    I am a layman who decided to become vegetarian at age 17 (60 years ago). At that time I understood that some doctors, often vegetarian themselves, used homeopathy. Although I have needed little medical intervention, because the NHS was the only service available to me for financial reasons, I only once used homeopathy (unsuccessfully).
    However, it is clear that allopaths have usually been antagonistic in principle to homeopathic remedies. My only patient experience was the New Era mineral supplements, which were made to homeopathic dilutions. As a health store I sold thousands of these to patients who appeared to be very satisfied. I realise that professionals might regard such products as not being true homeopathy which treats each individual uniquely.
