Dec 1, 2009: A wonderful day for British Homeopathy


WORLD CLOCK | 9:00PM London for your time and location

NHS

Courtesy : Dr Kaplan Here follow the immortal words of Health Minister, Mike O’Brien: ‘We take the view that it is not our job to stop clinicians prescribing these medications if they feel they are appropriate.’ See more here. Striking a blow for liberty worthy of John Stuart Mill, the Honorable Minister went on to say that cutting the (NHS) funding would be “illiberal” and “a denial of personal choice”. He also said there were a range of opinions amongst clinicians and scientists which could not be ignored. This was after being grilled by the House of Commons Science and Technology Committee which comprised many people less than friendly to homeopathy. such as Edzard Ernst, Ben Goldacre and Tracey Brown all of whom lambasted homeopathy in the hearing. But the Health minister hinted at the essential point: NHS homepathy is practised by trained doctors who have to take responsibility for what they do. That is the headline and the bottom line and the middle line and all the other lines in between. Mike O’Brien knew it and had the guts to say it in the face of massive negative publicity in the media. Bravo Minister! This is a wonderful, frabjous day for homeopathy, medicine and freedom. The Jabberwock of opposition to NHS homeopathy has yet to be slain that’s for sure, but make no mistake about it, dear reader, this is a BIG day for homeopathy and I’ll be chortling for the rest of today that’s for sure!

PULSE TODAY | Homeopathy 'should be available on the NHS', says minister
01 Dec 09 By Nigel Praities
Homeopathy should remain available on the NHS despite no evidence it is more powerful than placebo, the Government said yesterday.

Health minister Mike O’Brien said GPs should have the freedom to prescribe a homeopathic treatment if they chose, subject to agreement by their local PCT.
The comments came during an evidence session of the House of Commons Science and Technology meeting, which is looking at the use of homeopathy on the NHS.
After some hard questioning from the committee, Mr O’Brien revealed up to £10 million was spent on homeopathic treatments by the NHS last year, despite no evidence they were effective beyond placebo.

‘There is some evidence that the placebo effect works and there are a lot of doctors who take the view that it works and it is also that case that we have a lot of people who believe in it,' he said.

‘But if you are asking me as a minister if there is enough evidence that is empirical and peer-assessed, then the answer is no,’ he admitted.

‘We take the view that it is not our job to stop clinicians prescribing these medications if they feel they are appropriate.'

Evan Harris MP, a member of the select committee, said the minister was supporting ‘paternalistic deception’ by continuing to allow homeopathic treatments to be available on the NHS.

ITSA GREAT NEWS THAT GREAT BRITAIN IS GOING TO ACCEPT GREAT HOMOEOPATHY.
HOMOEOPATHY CAN DO WONDERS IF PRACTISED STRICTLY ACCORDING TO THE ORGANON OF HOMOEOPATHY AS GUIED BY SIR SAMUEL CHRISTIAN FRIEDRICK HAHNEMANN.
I DID MY PG IN HOMOEOPATHY FROM HAHNEMANN COLLEGE OF HOMOEOPATHY,LONDON,SPENT LONG TOME IN LONDON AND I ALWAYS FEEL VERY MUCH THAT HOMOEOPATHY HAS NO PLACE IN NHS TRUST.
ITS GOOD DECISION BY THE MINISTER FOR PEOPLE OF BRITAIN AND FOR NOBLE ART OF HEALING THAT IS HOMOEOPATHY.
THIS IS STEP NO 1

the idea is to have proper trained doctors physicians........who understand MEDICINE , HOMOEOPATHY,MEDICAL SCIENCES, laws and direction and not just use homeopathy on basis eg: allium cepa for cold .Or nux vomica for diarrheas or symptomatic treatment etc etc a... proper work up of cases with understanding and clinical improvement ....

THE APPLICATION OF PRINCIPLES MAKE THE MEDICINE HOMEOPATHIC...and they should be adhered to with flexiblity in order to promote........PROPER HOMEOPATHY and GIVE IT RIGHTFUL PLACE..ie parallel to modern medicine..........

AUDE SAPERE TO ENGLISH. PHYSICIANS WHO PRACTICE HOMEOPATHY..MAY YOU BRING HONOR AND PRIDE ONCE AGAIN TO THE NOBLE PROFESSION..
we can practice and learn homoeopathy exactlly as taught by master hahnemann.................................only if we imagine that i am suffering with the disease for which a patient is in my clinic,or its my best friend ,for whom i have to find a right similimum and i have to perform my duty very well,as dr.is always next to GOD so WE MUST try best to have GODLY qualities,
