(Original article written by a retired Brazilian Senior Homeopathic Physician)

From http://homeopathyheals.me.uk/site/component/content/article/111-frontpage/2626-big-pharmas-plot-against-homeopathy-in-brazil ‘… Suddenly Brazil´s population woke up in the early days of 2000 under heavy fire from Big Pharma’s plot with headlines in the compromised media and press, such as HOMEOPATHY IS OVER, etc. Well, it was the start of three full years of endless discussions in the press and media regarding this medical discipline.
After the first shock, there began a campaign against Homeopathy all over Brazil
with inspections by health authorities on homeopathic pharmacies and the
witch-hunting of pharmacists as well, under the excuse of quality controls, etc.,
and the forbidding in some cases, of sales of homeopathic remedies for several
fake reasons, etc. But Big Pharma made a hazardous Big Mistake by starting such a plot against Homeopathy since this has been an official medical specialty since 1980
under Decree #1000 and signed by the President of the Republic of Brazil
after Congress approval and official legal recognition of the Federal Board of Medicine in Brasilia. Read the rest of this entry »

From http://www.homeopathyeurope.org/media/news/newsletter-16-january-2013/italian-homeopathic-doctors-on-their-way-to-regulation Last month the Conference of the Regions and Autonomous Provinces in Italy approved a document on the regulation of education and training in homeopathy, acupuncture and herbal medicine for medical doctors.

The document was produced in close cooperation with the Italian Medical Council FNOMCeO, along the lines of a previous similar agreement in Tuscany and proposed by the interregional Technical Group for Complementary Medicine. It was the main hurdle to pass on the way to a national regulation. Now it is up to the State-Regions Conference to approve the agreement, probably early this year.  Read the rest of this entry »

From http://www.bmj.com/content/345/bmj.e6184/rr/616928‘… Once again it must be said that what passes for ‘scientific’ discussion amongst homeopathic critics is almost entirely lacking in substance. Scientific statements, by definition, must be precise and testable. Unfortunately, criticisms of homeopathy rarely pass this test. Read the rest of this entry »
