Homeopathy not a cure, says WHO
Aug20-2009

Homeopathic remedies often contain few or no active ingredients
People with conditions such as HIV, TB and malaria should not rely on homeopathic treatments, the World Health Organization has warned.

It was responding to calls from young researchers who fear the promotion of homeopathy in the developing world could put people's lives at risk.

The group Voice of Young Science Network has written to health ministers to set out the WHO view.

However practitioners said there were areas where homeopathy could help.


There is no objective evidence that homeopathy has any effect on these infections

Dr Nick Beeching, Royal Liverpool University Hospital
In a letter to the WHO in June, the medics from the UK and Africa said: "We are calling on the WHO to condemn the promotion of homeopathy for treating TB, infant diarrhoea, influenza, malaria and HIV.

"Homeopathy does not protect people from, or treat, these diseases.

"Those of us working with the most rural and impoverished people of the world already struggle to deliver the medical help that is needed.

"When homeopathy stands in place of effective treatment, lives are lost."

Dr Robert Hagan is a researcher in biomolecular science at the University of St Andrews and a member of Voice of Young Science Network, which is part of the charity Sense About Science campaigning for "evidence-based" care.

He said: "We need governments around the world to recognise the dangers of promoting homeopathy for life-threatening illnesses.

"We hope that by raising awareness of the WHO's position on homeopathy we will be supporting those people who are taking a stand against these potentially disastrous practices."

'No evidence'

Dr Mario Raviglione, director of the Stop TB department at the WHO, said: "Our evidence-based WHO TB treatment/management guidelines, as well as the International Standards of Tuberculosis Care do not recommend use of homeopathy."


This is just another poorly wrapped attempt to discredit homeopathy

Paula Ross, Society of Homeopaths
The doctors had also complained that homeopathy was being promoted as a treatment for diarrhoea in children.

But a spokesman for the WHO department of child and adolescent health and development said: "We have found no evidence to date that homeopathy would bring any benefit.

"Homeopathy does not focus on the treatment and prevention of dehydration - in total contradiction with the scientific basis and our recommendations for the management of diarrhoea."

Dr Nick Beeching, a specialist in infectious diseases at the Royal Liverpool University Hospital, said: "Infections such as malaria, HIV and tuberculosis all have a high mortality rate but can usually be controlled or cured by a variety of proven treatments, for which there is ample experience and scientific trial data.

"There is no objective evidence that homeopathy has any effect on these infections, and I think it is irresponsible for a healthcare worker to promote the use of homeopathy in place of proven treatment for any life-threatening illness."


My suggestion:
Write the BBC with the correct fact!
Homeopathy never fails!
This should be a call to arms by the entire world homeopathic community. The World Health Organization has sold their souls to the drug companies. Indeed they are not representing "world" health but rather "allopathic" health. Why? Simple- follow the dollar! Much of the United Nations has tragically become nothing but a pawn on the world stage. Like all non-profits they need a constant influx of dollars in order to exist- rather than being a non-biased advocate for human health and dignity; it seems that they are divorcing themselves from "alternative" medicine because alternative medicine is CHEAP! There are no multi-billion dollar multi-national companies selling natural cures- so to hell with them. Homeopaths need to stand up for their art and science---trust me- no one else will!
Hi Robert
Yes I agree 100% with you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Truly a sad state of affairs we have here!
Greed, Greed, And More Greed-
What Happened to "first Do nO harm"?

AMA,CDC,FDA.
Please, read this carefully.

My question is:
Does Ethambutol cure tuberculosis or is it useless? The text above includes the answer.
I am sorry for the joke.

The idea is clear, of course.

If a lie is repeated 1000 times, "it becomes a true".

We know that the lie remains a lie. We know that many people know it.

We know that the people who don't believe WHO and the ones who are not interested in what WHO says are more than the people who do.

So let us do our job and let WHO does whatever it likes.

The Humanity is on our side.
Many people don't know that they are our supporters but anyway they are.
Hee Hee! Now I got your point. I guess brain washing does work afterall!!
Tanya and Ruben--- ya got me confused?? What does the fact that ethambutol being an antimicrobial effective against TB have anything to do with the fact that there are alternatives to this drug?
Why should WHO endorse the exclusive use of an allopathic drug while at the same time summarily dismissing alternatives?
Dear Robert,

"Ethambutol cures tuberculosis" is arbitrarily chosen phrase.

My point is that our opinion is like a leaf in the ocean of allopathic propaganda.
But if one have a sharp eye, he does notices the leaf - Тhis is our guy.

The speaker of pharmaceutical industry - WHO - can not be different. So what?
My family, my patients, my friends do not believe WHO. We believe each other. We believe in God. We believe in the Future... And I just do not see WHO in my Future. I don't to see it in my present too.
For me it is absolutely enough to see HWC in my future :-)
True, such statements, especially from a place like WHO are rather disturbing. However, "taking up arms", "fighting and telling them they are wrong" and all these responses to such articles only do one thing: They put us into their boat and onto their playing field. We homeopaths know better, homeopathy is not just an "alternative medical modality", homeopathy is based on truths that stand for themselves. The moment we step onto "their" territory and play "their" game, we leave those truths behind.

The absolutely best thing we can do as homeopaths in my opinion, is to keep treating our patients with the very best care we can. Homeopathy speaks for itself and when the world is ready to listen, it will hear, not a day before that. Yes, one ponders, since Hahnemann's times, we have surely come a long way and homeopathy should now be fully recognized. Look around you, depending on where you live and practice, in some areas that is just simply not true, the world has NOT progressed much beyond Hahnemann's times! Also, the more we press for Homeopathy to be recognized, the more we will draw "governing bodies" to the table who will then require us to have a medical degree before we can prescribe homeopathic remedies - now THAT is better avoided. Personally, I stand on the point that "everything is as it is supposed to be" and follow my path without fear. Kudos for those who are drawn to play in the field of politics, personally, I am but a healer.

Dear friends,
Such oppositions and critics for homoeopathic treatment clearly defines one point, that those peoples who criticizes homoeopathy has the fear of being defeated by it... The fear makes them to act against it.

"The tasty fruit will get more stones" .... Each and every Critics will make the growth of homoeopathy higher and higher.

WHO HAVE CRITICIZED?! WHO WILL BE THE LOSER FOR IT?!
WHO EVER WILL BE THE LOSER, WE WONT BOTHER FOR IT !
LET US WORK FOR HOMOEOPATHY , WITHOUT BOTHERING WHO CRITICIZING US.

with love,
charu.
Yes, you seem to also think that these are but dogs barking at the elephant. So the elephant should ignore these dogs and keep walking.

But what you forget, is that those dogs are hunting dogs and that they belong to poachers. This metaphorical elephant is an endangered species and those poachers want its ivory.

And i also do not see what is so bad about fighting fire with fire. It is perfectly homoeopathic to the threat and so please explain how we have entered their territory, when we use our methods to make them mend their ways?
I wish that simply treating patients and ignoring what's going on could be enough, but I don't think it is. It wasn't for the women of the dark ages, who effectively treated people and held a trove of knowledge that has barely been kept alive.

Had they been able to stand together and fight their oppressors, it might not have happened. But they didn't. They were picked off, one by one, and people gradually accepted the lies of the persecutors.

I think that we must fight back. Standing as an example just isn't enough.

When our patients are embarrassed to admit they've been helped by us then we're in trouble. I've seen that happen more than I care to acknowledge. I have seen women become pregnant and refuse to acknowledge that it happened because of their homeopathic treatment, men's prostate problems resolved without telling their colleagues in the allopathic world, and more. We can't continue to gain patients when our patients are embarrassed or afraid to admit they've been helped by us. And that's happening now.
