Homeopathy and cancer
THE Science section of The Daily Telegraph of June 24 carried an article (Knapton 2016) covering the current petition calling on the RCVS to ban veterinary surgeons from practising homeopathy on animals (Chambers 2016). In that article, a British Association of Homeopathic Veterinary Surgeons (BAHVS) spokesperson is quoted as stating: ‘The RCVS has made it clear that homeopathic treatment is an acceptable type of therapy when practiced by trained vets. You only have to look on our website and you will see examples of where dogs have been cured of cancer through homeopathy.’ This, in the science section of a res...

Homeopathy petition attracts 2500 signatures
A petition calling on the RCVS to prevent homeopathic treatments being prescribed to animals has attracted more than 2500 signatures. Posted seven months ago on the change.org online petition site by Danny Chambers, an equine vet in Tavistock, the petition takes the form of an open letter to the RCVS raising concern that allowing vets to prescribe homeopathic treatments is an animal welfare issue and fails to meet the standard required for scientific veterinary practice: ‘The biggest danger of homeopathy is not that the remedies are ineffective, but that some homeopaths are of the opinion that their therapies can sub...

Protection against Diseases Using Homeopathy
Homœopathic Links 2016; 29: 101-103DOI: 10.1055/s-0036-1582471Protection against diseases, especially infectious diseases, using the homeopathic law of cure was self-evident to the earlier homoeopaths. But doubt seeped in slowly. In Germany and German-speaking countries, this boon to humanity was revived more than 30 years ago. It has since then shown its high efficacy against tropical diseases, infectious diseases in general and other affections. Confusion about its efficacy and even its legitimacy arose through the subtle manipulations of pseudoscience. The answers to our present problems in the advancement of homeopath...

Publication and outcome reporting of homeopathy trials registered in ClinicalTrials.gov
ConclusionsOf all homeopathy trials registered on ClinicalTrials.gov, only 46% appear to have published within 2 years of completion, of which a quarter altered their primary endpoint. Further research is warranted on the nature and reasons for non‐publication.

Experiences with an Integrative Approach to Treating HIV/AIDS in East Africa
Homoeopathic Links 2016; 29: 022-031DOI: 10.1055/s-0036-1572347HIV/AIDS is a multifaceted condition affecting the whole person, which requires an individualised and holistic approach. In East Africa, Homoeopathy for Health in Africa offers patients an integrative, holistic method to supplement standard medical treatment and mitigates the side effects of antiretroviral (ARV) drugs that often interfere with patient adherence to treatment and lead to drug resistance. Patients who have homeopathy treatment as a supplement to ARVs report amelioration of side-effect symptoms, increased energy and enhanced well-being, allowing th...

Medicine, Monopoly, and Moral Panic: 21st Century Attacks on Homeopathy and Counterstrategy
Homoeopathic Links 2016; 29: 041-046DOI: 10.1055/s-0036-1572333Attacks on homeopathy have intensified since the early 21st century. Homeopathy is being attacked because of its success; it is the second most used type of medicine in the world. It is an important healing modality in many developing countries, and its use is also expanding in affluent nations. Its growth has caused moral panic amongst many in orthodox medicine, which is threatened by new scientific findings supporting homeopathy, and wants to protect its reputation and profits. The attacks consist of claims that homeopathy is unethical and ineffective, cuts i...

Towards an ethnography of Indian homeopathy.
Authors: Frank R, Ecks S Abstract Despite its large number of practitioners, medical anthropology has given little attention to Indian homeopathy. In historical accounts, homeopathy's popularity is explained by its position as a modern, yet non-colonial form of medicine, which became indigenized during the last 150 years. Other scholars argue that homeopathic concepts converge with Indian ideas on healing. However, few empirical data have been gathered on homeopathic practice in contemporary India. In this paper, we explore the perspectives of college-trained homeopaths in urban West Bengal. How strongly do they fe...

Moral Legitimacy: The Struggle Of Homeopathy in the NHS
This article deploys a well‐established theoretical model from the accountability literature to the domain of bioethics. Specifically, homeopathy is identified as a controversial industry and the strategic action of advocates to secure moral legitimacy and attract public funding is explored. The Glasgow Homeopathic Hospital (GHH) is used as the location to examine legitimizing strategies, from gaining legitimacy as a National Health Service (NHS) hospital in 1948, followed by maintaining and repairing legitimacy in response to government enquires in 2000 and 2010. An analysis of legitimizing strategies leads to the concl...

A Not-So-Gentle Refutation of the Defence of Homeopathy
Abstract In a recent paper, Levy, Gadd, Kerridge, and Komesaroff attempt to defend the ethicality of homeopathy by attacking the utilitarian ethical framework as a basis for medical ethics and by introducing a distinction between evidence-based medicine and modern science. This paper demonstrates that their argumentation is not only insufficient to achieve that goal but also incorrect. Utilitarianism is not required to show that homeopathic practice is unethical; indeed, any normative basis of medical ethics will make it unethical, as a defence of homeopathic practice requires the rejection of modern natural scien...

Understanding Homeopathy
This article is meant to present a link to help understand the concept of delusions used in homeopathy—as seen in a broader context of the totality of life—including the concept of samskaras as it is understood by various schools of Indian philosophy. It is also an attempt to widen the understanding of how healing by homeopathy is accomplished in a broader sense—as it is seen from a deeper perspective and understanding of the reality behind the concept of samskaras.[...]Thieme Medical and Scientific Publishers Private Limited.

A Strong Remedy to a Weak Ethical Defence of Homeopathy
Abstract In this article, I indicate and illustrate several flaws in a recent “ethical defence” of homeopathy. It transpires that the authors’ arguments have several features in common with homeopathic remedies, including strong claims, a lack of logic or evidence, and no actual effect.

Journalists' attitudes towards homeopathy: survey data from Germany
ConclusionBecause journalists act as the ‘gatekeepers' of evidence‐based scientific knowledge, targeted scholarly attention on journalists' attitudes is important. A thorough understanding of journalists' attitudes may contribute to a better dissemination of evidence‐based scientific knowledge to the wider public. This may ultimately contribute to better‐informed patients who make their health decisions by considering evidence‐based knowledge instead of widely shared myths.

Homeopathy versus Homeopathy
Homoeopathic Links 2015; 28: 142-149DOI: 10.1055/s-0035-1562850Homeopathy is a powerful medicine but also very dangerous. And it is not as said or thought: ‘if homeopathy doesn’t benefit, it doesn't harm'. The necessity to administer from the beginning of the treatment, the very exact right homeopathic remedy, called the simillimum, to a patient is a must and a great challenge for every homeopath. If not (by administering a similar remedy), the individual energy of the patient is derived from its original state and the patient can become insensitive, even to the exact simillimum and even when it is given right after th...

Risk in homeopathy: Classification of adverse events and homeopathic aggravations - A cross sectional study among Norwegian homeopath patients.
CONCLUSION: Patients reported a substantial part of the short-term reactions after taking homeopathic remedy as a worsening of symptoms. These reactions were classified as mild and moderate. Hence, the risk connected to homeopathic treatment is minor. More studies are needed to confirm the existence of homeopathic aggravation and how to classify the concept in a clinically meaningful way. PMID: 26275646 [PubMed - in process]

Is There a Role for Homeopathy in Cancer Care? Questions and Challenges
Abstract Patients with cancer commonly use complementary and integrative medicine, including homeopathy. Homeopathy has grown in popularity with the public but is viewed with skepticism by medical academia and is still excluded from conventionally prescribed treatments. In recent years, homeopathy has been used in cancer care in Europe and other countries worldwide. This use raised the question if there is any benefit in utilizing this type of care with cancer patients. The purpose of this manuscript is to explore the evidence related to the benefit of homeopathy in cancer care. Limited research has suggested tha...
