Homeopathy prescribing set to be blacklisted under NHS England plans


It's quite clear to anybody disagreeing with you, Christopher Ho, that this issue is NOT about money. The figure is miniscule. In today's news is an article suggesting that psychotherapy can be effective in IBS - something obvious to holistic doctors for several decades. I believe homeopathy works but even those who think that it's the consultation quality and some sort of 'hypnosis' is the therapeutic ingredient, even then it would be cruel to act like this. Fact is that OUTCOME STUDIES show that people seeing homeopathic doctors do get better and it's cost effective. Another fact is that it appears to work on animals and yet another that in India there are over 350K qualified homeopathic practitioners and a minister in the government for homeopathy and CAM. And yet another is the Swiss decision to let the people decide for themselves on this issue - as opposed to being told they are deluded by people such as yourself.
