Volunteering to do things on behalf of the Government, especially in Northern Ireland, has proved a dangerous thing over the years but there is at least one staff member here at Pulse who would be willing this week. As our news story elsewhere on the site shows, an NHS trial has backed homeopathy.....

In fact homeopathy, acupuncture and reflexology are among a range of complementary and alternative therapies which a new Government funded study in NI concludes should be provided on the NHS.

The treatments could even save the health service money, it found, after 81% of patients receiving the treatments on referral from their GP reported improvements in their physical health, and 79% in their mental health.

So on behalf of the Government come in Professor Edzard Ernst, one of the leading professors of complementary medicine-and a man with a professor's name if ever there was one- who last year offered a £10,000 cash prize to anyone who can prove homeopathy actually works.

The Government no doubt would be banned from taking your money so we'll accept it for breaking the news.

Do you think this is the proof the professor needs to show us the money?
