“From the age of 13 I suffered from hay-fever and nothing the doctor did helped. My mother took me to a homeopath and my hay-fever went, and it also helped greatly with allergies and asthma. It’s the most effective treatment I have ever tried including conventional medicine.”

We have less than a week left to reach the target and push for a debate in parliament about homeopathy and herbal medicines on the NHS.  The consultation which prompted the petition is being challenged legally and the more signatures the better visibility of the issue by those reviewing the case and MPs.  Importantly this does not just concern current users of NHS facilities, but also everyone who might be in need of these services in the future.


If you believe in free choice in health care and want to see options available for people who can’t be helped by conventional medicine, and could never afford private care,  vote now and please pass the link on as widely as you can.

Petition: Stop NHS England from removing herbal and homeopathic medicines

Under-threat hospital achieving results no other health service can offer, former boss says

A hospital facing the loss of its overnight ward is achieving results that no other health service can boast, according to its former head.

NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde is proposing to shut all seven inpatient beds at the Centre for Integrative Care (CIC) the only hospital of its kind in the UK.

The proposals are part of a raft of cuts aimed at saving NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde around £70million.

Dr David Reilly, the hospital's former Clinical Director, led the campaign in 2004 when the ward was first threatened, and the beds already cut from 15.

The Scottish Government later recommended not only retaining the beds but expressed hope that the 'person-centred' approach used at the CIC could be more widely spread across the health service.

NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde itself acknowledged that the service offered, " a valid and important model of care for patients whose needs were not being met by conventional treatment."

Position Statement – Wikipedia: Homeopathy

Homeopathy is often mis-understood, mis-quoted and may even be dismissed. The 4Homeopathy group, the people who represent the Find a Homeopath site found Wikipedia to have been somewhat dismissive of homeopathy, whilst completely ignoring the growing bank of evidence around this 200 year old form of medicine. As a group 4Homeopathy have created the following statement in response the information around homeopathy as displayed on Wikipedia:

Position Statement – Wikipedia: Homeopathy

Due to the public response of Jimmy Wales, founder of Wikipedia, to over 8000 signatures on a petition asking him to allow the Wikipedia page on Homeopathy to be edited in a more neutral and objective way we distance ourselves from the information presented therein. We find Jimmy Wales’ comments about homeopathy and his blatant prejudice against complementary and alternative medicine to be unjustified. Irrespective of Jimmy Wales’ personal opinion, patients have consistently reported that they benefit from homeopathic treatment: patients have a right to make an informed choice based on correct and fair information and Wikipedia is denying patients that right.

The central policy behind Wikipedia is to portray information in a neutral and objective way: the Wikipedia page on Homeopathy is neither neutral nor objective.
We acknowledge that the scientific evidence in support of Homeopathy remains inconclusive, but it is by no means definitively negative and there is in fact an active and growing field of research worldwide. We acknowledge that the mechanism of action of homeopathic remedies is unknown – as it is for some conventional medicines – but this does not preclude their usage in clinical situations. We welcome honest and open-minded debate about Homeopathy and fully support the call for high quality, appropriately designed research studies into the effectiveness of homeopathy as it is practised by both medical and professional homeopaths.

It is our position that patients, prospective patients and other interested parties view the Wikipedia page on homeopathy to be inaccurate and heavily biased: it is not currently a credible source of information.

Specifically, the Wikipedia page on Homeopathy is:
• Inaccurate and wilfully mis-represents the facts about homeopathy.
• Inappropriately derisory in tone.
• Dismissive and disrespectful to scientists and clinicians who research homeopathy in reputable universities worldwide.
• Limited in scope as it does not consider the global position of homeopathy and its successful integration into the training of medical practitioners in many countries.
• Disallows any balanced commentary or dissent from the biased sources cited.
• Selectively omits or misrepresents reputable information that is in support of homeopathy.
• Relies on a disproportionate number of anti-homeopathy sources without considering accurately representing pro-homeopathy sources for balance.
• Fails to present an adequate critique of the scientific debate around Homeopathy and selectively presents negative interpretations of data and theory.

Together, we believe these points highlight a significant failing in the editorial and collaborative community-based spirit of Wikipedia page creation. Until the blatantly prejudicial editorial process behind the Wikipedia page on Homeopathy has been investigated and amended Wikipedia is failing its user base and failing to implement its central policy, in particular ensuring that significant minority positions also be presented.

Alliance of Registered Homeopaths
British Homeopathic Association
British Association of Homoeopathic Manufacturers
British Association of Homeopathic Veterinary Surgeons
Faculty of Homeopathy
Friends of the Royal London Hospital for Integrated Medicine
