Much to the Dismay of the "Skeptics," Homeopathy Is Boosted in Many Countries Around the World

I often write about the tactics of the quackbuster groups around the world and their efforts to smear all medical alternatives, with homeopathy being their favorite target. Luckily, all is not bleak!  There are countries in the world that have benefited so much from homeopathy, or have sufficient neutrality, courage, and honesty to evaluate the evidence and give homeopathy its due, that they boost homeopathy for their citizens — no matter what Big Pharma may think or do.


Check out these hopeful developments on the global world stage for homeopathy:


Comprehensive and refreshingly unbiased Swiss government report concludes: Homeopathy is effective, safe, and saves money!  In fact, the report concludes with a recommendation that homeopathy be covered by the Swiss national health service. Dana Ullman’s fantastic two-part series for the Huffington Post describes the results of this landmark study that was released in late 2011 and also as a book in English (Bornhoft and Matthiessen, 2011):  Ullman–Part 1 ; Ullman–Part 2.


The Mexican government is boosting the production of homeopathic medicines in its efforts to provide affordable and effective care.  Mexico is making an effort to provide universal health care and knows that homeopathy provides a way to do so that is affordable.


The Indian government also knows that the only way to affordably and effectively care for its vast population, it must expand its use of the wide array of medical alternatives in its country — homeopathy being one of the most popular.


Brazil’s April 2012 edition of Scientific American is boosting homeopathy as eco-sensitive medicine — safe and effective for agricultural use! There have been some recent amazing studies showing the effectiveness of using homeopathy for plants. Now how can plants be responding to the “placebo effect”?!  Check out this translated excerpt from the Brazilian article, by Nina Ximenes, a biologist and postgraduate environmental education student.  But be forewarned — the link is to a quackbuster site that is putting this article down. BRAVO! to the bravery and integrity of Nina Ximenes and Scientific American, Brasil!
