Call for ban of homoeopathy

20th March 2012

Professor Edzard Ernst of Exeter University has said NHS funding of homeopathic medicine should be stopped.

Professor Ernst said homeopathy was "scientifically implausible". He wrote in The Biologist: "Homeopathy could be (and often is) used as an alternative to effective interventions. For example, the advice from homeopaths not to immunise has become a major cause of low vaccination rates. Also, the strategy of using homeopathy as a benign placebo can only work if clinicians do not tell the truth to their patients."

Its very disheartening to know that everytime this healing science is questioned!!!!! Why it is that homoeopathy has to undergo tests and trials everytime?? If homoeopathic science is not efficacious then why it is that today we see... homoeo clinics with huge number of patients as compared to allopathic clinics I'm not here to draw comparison between the two pathies but just want to aware the public that homoeopathy is efficacious in treating both acute as wellas chronic cases. Being a practitoner I can detail enn nummber of cases where patient has responded within couple of hrs. With this healing science. Well qualified homoeopathic doctors who with their knowledge apply the laws of homoeopathy beautifully and show miraculous results can prove this science themselves and the people undergoing this pathy themselves will speak for it...The upsurge of homoeopathy seen worldwide should not be questioned but rather be appreciated for its rapid, gentle and permanent cure..
