Maybe the Berlin Wall is homeopathically useful when you are shitting bricks......
But I don't think major multinational are to blame for homeopathy. There is precious little value in thin air, and because there is no research, there are almost no barriers to entry. No, your anger, though justified, is a little misplaced.
However, my equilibrium (or even my chakras) is/are being disturbed by this thread.
I broached homeopathy with my parents a few months ago. (I showed them a James Randi clip.) Their principal defence was that their (NHS) doctor was a "qualified" [my quotation marks] homeopath. Prompted by this thread, I have just looked up their GP practice (which was mine too, some years ago).
I am appalled to find that the senior partner lists her medical interests as:
paediatrics, homeopathy [my bold], gynaecology and asthma care.
SHe lists her impressive-looking qualifications as:
MA, MBBS, DCH, DRCOG, MRCGP, LFHom (Med) [my bold again]
of those letters represent blood, sweat and tears. But not all of them. A quick google of medical alphabet soup (healthshield co.uk) yielded this:
F.B.I.H. Fellow of the British Institute of Homoeopaths.
F.F.Hom. Fellow of the Faculty of Homoeopaths.
F.S.Hom. Fellow of the Royal Society of Homoeopaths.
L.C.P.H. College of Practical Homoeopathy.
L.C.C.H. (Homoeopath) Licentiate of the Contemporary College of Homoeopathy
L.F.Hom. Faculty of Homoeopaths.
M.A.R.H. Member of the Alliance of Registered Homoeopaths.
M.B.I.H. Member of the British Institute of Homoeopathy.
M.C.P.H. Member of the College of Practical Homoeopathy.
M.F.Hom. Member of the Faculty of Homoeopaths.
M.H.M.A. Member of the Homoeopathic Medical Association.
R.S.Hom. Registered with the Royal Society of Homoeopaths.
U.K.H.M.A. United Kingdom Homoeopathic Medical Association.
WTF!!! It's worse than world boxing titles!!
I'd be very interested to hear what other posters (Alan H in particular) think I should do.....
