Following the debate: homeopathy and anthroposophic medicine in the news

Oct 24, 2016

The public debate on homeopathy and anthroposophic medicine continues. In this, our regular round-up, we provide links to and background on some items of relevance to our sector that have been in the news recently. The overall impression is that the increasing good news about homeopathy, and the growing professionalism of the sector are met by ever stronger resistance.

  • Hälsa magazine in Sweden gave five pages of coverage to the scientific debate about homeopathy, following the event organised and hosted by ECHAMP in Stockholm in April 2016; it reported on the opinions of a range of scientists, including Rachel Roberts, Homeopathy Research Institute, Petter Viksveen, University of Sheffield, Jan Bruhn, retired Professor of Pharmacognosy and Carl-Olav Stiller, Associate Clinical Professor of Pharmacology and Chief Physician at Karolinska University Hospital. The article gives a balanced view on the scientific debate.
  • In Italy on 29 September, the Senate of the Italian Republic hosted a comprehensive presentation of diverse directions in complementary medicine, including homeopathy and anthroposophic medicine; in addition to a strong communication to the media, the stakeholders involved called on the Italian regulators to implement rules and standards on best practice of comlementary medicine.
