July 6, 2012

A little over 3 weeks ago I did a post on Homeopathy Awareness Week where I looked at some of the website claims being made by homeopaths who are members of the Society of Homeopaths (SoH) and the Alliance of Registered Homeopaths (ARH) and how these claims breached their own Code of Ethics and Practice.  Awareness should […]

Homeopathy Awareness Week – Are you aware ?

June 14, 2012

This week (14 – 21 June 2012) is Homeopathy Awareness week.  Far from making the public aware of the truth behind homeopathy, they simply increase the amount of misleading and in some cases dangerous misinformation directed towards the public.  The aim of this yearly misinformation campaign is to convince uninformed members of the public that a shaken […]

On 5 March 2011 I sent a complaint to the ASA regarding the website content of homeopath Helen Saunders.  This was done for a number of reasons: First: This was done because homeopathy lacks any reliable evidence to support the claims being made.  Those claims range from minor, self limiting conditions, through to far more […]

Sadly there are people who think homeopathy is a safe and effective form of ‘natural or herbal medicine’.  If you are one of those people I urge you to visit the 1023 website at www.1023.org.uk and read the sections that explain what homeopathy is, what it is not and the harm it can do. It […]

On Thursday 28 Jan my local paper printed an article in the run up to the 1023 campaign mass overdose.   It was a good article (not available online as far as I know) and it stated the 1023 campaign message very clearly.   In the interests of fairness and presenting views from all sides the article […]
