Forced Closure Of Our Homeopathic Practices In Belgium

Because of the new Belgian legislation that limits homeopathy to doctors, dentists and midwifes, we were forced to close our group practice within 10 (!) days, the fine being 30.000 euro if we practiced any day longer.  The transitory measurements state that holders of a Bachelor degree in a paramedical specialty can continue but practicing homeopaths who would start the study today can't be registered in the future.

This means that professional homeopaths like me are outlawed. Although it is covered in the a 'recognition' of homeopathy, in reality it is aimed at destroying it. The professionals like me (who trained hundreds of homeopaths, among which the doctors, nurses, midwifes can continue while I have to stop) are criminalized (for the safety of the public forbidden) and the med's can only apply homeopathy on an Evident Based prescription, which we know is non existent.

To see what this implies is reality

One of the saddest days of my life

Sorry to hear the news ... By silencing the right to practice Homeopathy the Government has shown that its vision for health of its citizens is grossly clouded.. Hope Sanity prevails soon.

I just read this:

Belgium is a Federal constitutional monarchy. They are not communist and allied with the rest of the EU and NATO (headquarters is in Brussels). The US tends to tell them who their foes are depending on Washington's interest of the day 

Belgium became independent in 1830. Between 1970 and 1993, the country evolved into a more efficient federal structure. This occurred through five state reforms (in 1970, 1980, 1988-89, 1993 and 2001). As a result, the first Article of the Belgian constitution reads today: 'Belgium is a federal state, composed of communities and regions'. 

The power to make decisions is no longer the exclusive preserve of the federal government and the federal parliament. The leadership of the country is now in the hands of various partners, who independently exercise their authority within their domains. 
The communities 

The redistribution of power occurred along two lines. The first line relates to language and, in a broader sense, to everything related to culture. The result was several communities. The concept of 'community' refers to persons that make up a community and the bond that unifies them, namely their language and culture. Belgium sits across the fault line that separates German and Latin cultures. This explains why the country has three official languages: Dutch, French and German. As a result, Belgium today, has three communities: the Flemish Community, the French Community and the German-speaking Community. These communities therefore correspond with the population groups. 
The regions 

The second line of state reform was historically inspired by economic interests. The regions, which aspired to more economic autonomy, conveyed these interests. The establishment of the three regions was the result: the Flemish Region, the Brussels Capital Region and the Walloon Region. Up to a certain level they can be compared with the American states or the German 'Länder'. 

The country is further divided into 10 provinces and 589 municipal councils.
The Federal State 

The Federal State nevertheless retains important powers, for example in the area of foreign affairs, national defence, justice, finance, social security, important parts of national health and domestic affairs... However, the communities and the regions also have the power to establish and maintain foreign relations. 

Reconciling regional and cultural identities within a federal structure is easier said than done. Yet, it has the advantage of taking the decision process closer to the population. The result is a more sharply defined political structure with a greater emphasis on the quality of life.

This truly is a criminal act against humanity, against a profession, against healers, against homeopaths and we do not know how far this will go. How can they possibly say that if you begin a study to be within the law, you will be banned from practicing homeopathy in the future. What kind of nonsense law can be written that is totally beyond human rights? Is this a democratic country? What kind of devious plot was hatched to do this evil upon the earth? 

Dear Anne - I am so very sad and sorry for this decree. You will find a way forward. You went on a year's walk spreading the word of homeopathy. Nothing can stop you now. Love, Debby
