Are you a journalist or presenter looking for someone to discuss Homeopathy Awareness Week? Then please get in touch.
The Society of Homeopaths are promoting “Homeopathy – a natural approach for the symptoms of hay fever”
Did you know there is no convincing evidence that homeopathy can help with hayfever, or for any other condition?
Did you know that homeopaths do not just treat mild self-limiting conditions such as hayfever, but they believe that they can treat serious diseases around the world such as malaria and HIV?
Did you know that the charity Sense About Science has recently called on the World Health Organisation to condemn the use of homeopathy in the developing world for life threatening disease?
In a letter to the World Health Organisation today, early career medics and researchers are calling for the body to issue a clear international communication about the inappropriate use of homeopathy for five serious diseases. They say they are frustrated with the continued promotion of homeopathy as a preventative or treatment for HIV, TB, malaria, influenza and infant diarrhoea. The Voice of Young Science network has joined with other early career medics and researchers working in developing countries to send the letter, in advance of a ‘Homeopathy for Developing Countries’ conference in the Netherlands on 6th June.
Did you know that Founder Members, current or former Directors, Fellows and other senior figures within the Society of Homeopaths have been actively engaged in promoting or using homeopathic sugar pills to treat or prevent malaria and HIV in Africa and other developing areas?
Did you know that homeopathy organisations fail to condemn dangerous uses of homeopathy for children and serious illnesses even when terrible harm is done?
Here is a sensible factsheet about Homeopathy, its principles and the evidence base for it.
I can put you in contact with researchers, medics and campaigners who care that the public is fully aware of what homeopathy is and what its limitations are. Let’s have the debate.
