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.

British Government confirms place of homeopathy in the NHS

Evidence Check: Homeopathy

On 26 July 2010, the British Government responded to the Science and Technology (S&T) Committee report ‘Evidence Check2: Homeopathy'. The Government reaffirms that homeopathy belongs in the National Health Service (NHS) where patients can best benefit from doctors integrating it into healthcare. The response clearly states that ‘local NHS and clinicians, rather than Whitehall, are best placed to make decisions on what treatment is appropriate for their patients - including complementary or alternative treatments such as homeopathy - and provide accordingly for those treatments.'


"Evidence Check 2: Homeopathy" by the House of Commons Science

Response by the European Committee for Homeopathy ECH and the International Homeopathic Medical League LMHI 

In a report published 22 February 2010, the Science and Technology Committee of the United Kingdom House of Commons concludes that homeopathy is not efficacious (that is, it does not work beyond the placebo effect), that explanations for why homeopathy would work are scientifically implausible and that further clinical trials of homeopathy could not be justified. Furthermore, it concludes that the NHS should cease funding homeopathy and that the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) should no longer license homeopathic medicines.

Remarkably, just 4 of the 14 members of the Science and Technology Committee voted on this report: 3 for, one against. One of its three signatories has stridently campaigned against homeopathy and continued to do so even in the period between the hearings and the publication of the report.

The European Committee for Homeopathy ECH and the International Homeopathic Medical League LMHI find the conclusions and recommendations of the Science and Technology Committee completely unfounded. The report is highly tendentious and fundamentally flawed, consistently misrepresenting the scientific evidence to the detriment of homeopathy and making unfounded and pejorative allegations against those who advocate or practise homeopathy.


Beneficial effect of homeopathic medicines on breast cancer cells

A recent study published in the International Journal of Oncology has demonstrated the beneficial effects of homeopathic medicines on breast cancer cells.

In 1999 the US National Cancer Institute (NCI) evaluated a cancer treatment protocol developed at the P. Banerji Homeopathic Research Foundation (PBHRF) in Kolkata, India. The ‘Banerji protocol’ used specific ultra-diluted natural substances to treat patients with different cancers. The NCI reviewed 10 patients treated on the Banerji protocol. In four of the cases with lung and esophageal cancers, the NCI confirmed partial responses. All patients reviewed had appropriate pathology and imaging studies to confirm diagnosis and response. The patients only received the remedies prescribed at the PBHRF clinic and did not receive any additional conventional treatment, such as surgery, radiation, or chemotherapy. After rigorous evaluation, the NCI concluded that there was sufficient evidence of efficacy to warrant further research of the Banerji protocol.

Epidemic Diseases:

LMHI Guideline for Clinical Data Collection

Historically, homeopathy always acts very well in pandemic situations. To confirm this fact nowadays, homeopaths have to collect the clinical data of their influenza patients.

The first aim is to define the "genius epidemicus", first at the office of each MD, later on in each country and finally worldwide. Taking some time for this analysis is winning time for next consultations to everybody.
The second aim will be to have the possibility to do a retrospective survey on the pandemic situation when it will be passed.
