Sri Lanka Establishes Homeopathic Medical Council and Professional Registration

Sri Lanka has passed legislation that updates its Homeopathy Act to ensure the establishment of a Homeopathic Medical Council and the registration of Homeopathic practitioners and pharmacists.

The Homoeopathy Bill was passed in Parliament yesterday with amendments.

The Bill was presented by Health, Nutrition and Indigenous Medicine Minister Dr. Rajitha Senaratne on June 7. The Bill replaces the Homoeopathy Act of 1970.

The new Act provides for the establishment of a Homoeopathic Medical Council; for the registration of Homoeopathic Practitioners and Homoeopathic Pharmacists; for the registration and regulation of Homoeopathic Institutions; to promote, foster, and regulate the Homoeopathic system of medicine and for the regulation and control of the manufacture, importation, storage, sale and distribution of homoeopathic medicine, drugs and other homoeopathic preparations.

The Minister moving the Bill for the debate, said the Homoeopathy Act had not been amended for 45 years, adding that the new Bill addresses the loopholes of the previous legislation. He said about 150-200 patients obtain treatments at the Welisara Homoeopathy hospital daily mainly for joint pains, asthma, child and women illnesses.

“Unlike western medical treatment that provides external immunisation, the Homoeopathy treatment enhances natural immunisation in the body. Medicine used in Homoeopathy is made of natural substances such as herbs and parts of animals. Adverse effects in them are low,” he said.

“The medicine is also comparatively cheap and easy to use. We need to encourage the promotion of the Homoeopathy medical system,” he said.

New Study: 20,000 Italian Doctors Recommend Homeopathy

Homeopathy is an important part of the medical fabric of most countries in Europe. One in six Italians use homeopathic medicine at least once a year says a new independant research study. The new report also shows that over 20,000 Italian Medical Doctors recommend homeopathy.

Unknown

(ANSA) – Rome, February 23 – One in six Italians use homeopathic medicine at least once a year, research by health sector research institute DoxaPharma showed on Tuesday.
The study also showed that about 20,000 doctors in Italy recommend the use of homeopathy, a system in which patients are treated with small doses of a substance that would in larger amounts lead to symptoms of illness in healthy people.
Omeoimprese, an association of the biggest homeopathic medicine producers in Italy, reported revenues of about 92.6 million euros in 2015, up 2.9 % compared to the previous year.
Total turnover in the whole homeopathy sector in Italy amounted to more than 300 million euros, making it the third largest market in Europe. However, overall revenues edged slightly lower by 1% in 2015.
“The number of Italians who are familiar with our products remains high, but the economic crisis that has hit companies globally has without doubt negatively influenced prescriptions of the drugs, for which patients have to pay the entire cost,” said Omeoimprese President Giovanni Gorga.

ANSA

Primarily medical doctors practise homeopathy in Italy. There are a number of large homeopathic medical organizations in Italy that have several schools and associations each. These are SIO (Societa Italiana di Omeopatia) and FIAMO (Federazione Italiana delle Associazioni e dei Medici Omeopati). There are many schools teaching homeopathy and some interesting research into homeopathy happening at main stream Universities in Italy.

What does Coca Cola, the Pharmaceutical Industry and the Anti-homeopathy Group ‘Sense About Science’ Have In Common?

The Alliance for Natural Health International reports that the anti homeopathy group Sense about Science has been “busted by The Times of London” for once again secretly supporting corporate giants.  This skeptic group has been for years taking contributions from Pharmaceutical Companies.  In turn, they have authored actions and reports that seem independent and equal minded but are an attempt by the pharmaceutical industry to destroy homeopathy and the right of consumers to choose alternative health  modalities.

The alliance for natural health reports that “On the 9th & 10th October 2015 respectively, The Times published two consecutive, highly revealing articles by its special correspondent, Alexi Mostrous. In the Saturday piece, Alexi Mostrous exposed Sense About Science’s association with Coca-Cola. Sense About Science is the charity with which anti-alternative medicine skeptics like Simon Singh and Ben Goldacre are associated, that claims to be independent yet often acts as a voice for Big Food, Pharma and Biotech.”

According to the article, Sense about Science used its so called “scientific voice” to debunk a study that showed the dangers of drinking sugar-sweetened beverages.  The research evidence that triggered this situation was entitled “Estimated Global, Regional, and National Disease Burdens Related to Sugar-Sweetened Beverage Consumption in 2010”. The background of the research was described as follows:

     “Sugar-sweetened beverages (SSBs) are consumed globally and contribute to adiposity. However, the worldwide impact of SSBs on burdens of adiposity-related cardiovascular diseases (CVDs), cancers, and diabetes mellitus has not been assessed by nation, age, and sex…”

As mentioned, Sense about Science has been complicit in inciting and spreading negative and false opinions about homeopathy and alternative health modalities. It was revealed that it is funded by the pharmaceutical industry and other corporations needing a seemingly “independent” scientific voice.
