Switzerland Joins Canada in Making The Homeopathic Profession An Official Health Discipline

The Swiss interior ministry has announced its intention to elevate five complementary therapies including homeopathy to the same level as conventional medicine. Homeopathy, holistic medicine, herbal medicine, acupuncture and traditional Chinese medicine will acquire the same status as conventional medicine by May 2017.

Canada’s largest province, Ontario, has now officially “proclaimed” homeopathy as a health profession. It gives professional homeopaths equal footing with other health disciplines.

The United Kingdom’s  Society of Homeopaths’ voluntary register has been accredited under a new scheme set up by the Department of Health and administered by an independent body, the Professional Standards Authority for Health and Social Care, which is accountable to the United Kingdom’s Parliament.
