Liga Medicorum Homoeopathica Internationalis (LMHI) - Welcome to our website
The international homeopathic medical society Liga Medicorum Homoeopathica Internationalis (LMHI), established in Rotterdam in 1925, represents homeopathic physicians in more than 70 countries all over the world. The purposes of the association are the development and securing of homeopathy worldwide and the creation of a link among licensed homeopaths with medical diplomas and societies and persons who are interested in homeopathy. The LMHI is exclusively devoted to non-profit activities serving philanthropic benefits.
The new revised edition of Scientific Framework Homeopathy - Evidenced Based Homeopathy 2015
This joint publication of the Liga Medicorum Homeopathica Internationalis (LMHI), the European Committee for Homeopathy (ECH) and Central Council for Research in Homoeopathy (CCRH) was revised edition after 69th LMHI Congress, July 2014 (Paris, France). The aim is to consider all important aspects of the scientific framework of homeopathic practice including ethical questions, evaluation of daily practice, looking at the level of scientific evidence of each of these aspects.
Bias and flawed methodology in the NHMRC report on Homeopathy
Liga Medicorum Homoeopathica Internationalis (LMHI), an international body which strives to preserve and promote the homeopathic science through its worldwide network of licensed healthcare providers, disagrees strongly with a number of unscientific methods used to draw questionable conclusions from a narrow group of studies on homeopathy by the National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC). NHMRC is Australia’s leading expert body promoting the development and maintenance of public and individual health standards. The NHMRC Statement on Homeopathy was released on 11 March 2015 by the Homeopathy Working Committee (HWC) of that council.
LMHI accepted as a Non-Profit Organization
In March 2013, the LMHI moved its statutory seat from Geneva, Switzerland, to the original house of Dr Samuel Hahnemann in Koethen (Anhalt), Germany. One of the reasons for this decisive step was the intention to achieve the status of a non-profit organization for the LMHI. In August 2013, the German tax offices granted the LMHI this status of a non-profit organization. From now on, the LMHI has the possibility to receive donations and issue receipts.
Back to the roots of homeopathy: LMHI moves seat to Hahnemann City of Köthen
The LMHI has moved its statutory seat from Geneva, Switzerland, to the original house of Dr Samuel Hahnemann in Koethen (Anhalt), Germany. This move was celebrated in the presence of the Secretary of State in the Ministry of Science and Economic Affairs of Saxony-Anhalt Marco Tullner, Koethen's Lord Mayor Kurt-Juergen Zander and other city representatives from the City of Koethen, the LMHI Executive Board, and more than 50 guests from all around the world, including India, Bangladesh, Japan, Turkey, and Serbia, but also from Belgium, Austria and the Netherlands, in a joyful and moving ceremony on 16 March 2013. From 1821 to 1835, Hahnemann, the founder of homeopathy, lived and praticed in "Wallstraße 47" and it is here where he wrote his work "Chronic Diseases" in 1828. His former residence has been extensively restored by the Hahnemannhouse-Society.
