"High dilutions of something are not nothing" professor Luc Montagnier, nobel prize winner.
Another Nobel Prize winner, Dr. Brian Josephson, explains: “Simple-minded analysis may suggest that water, being a fluid, cannot have a structure …. But … liquid crystals… can maintain an ordered structure over macroscopic distances, show[ing] the limitations of such ways of thinking. There have not, to the best of my knowledge, been any refutations of homeopathy that remain valid after this particular point is taken into account.” How many Nobel prizewinners does it take to change a mind?

The aim of this campaign is to change the media narrative on homeopathy: 1. To build a huge international petition in support of homeopathy. 2. To give supporters of homeopathy a voice and confidence in their own belief. 3. To provide soundbite arguments to use in defence of homeopathy (at the bottom of this page). 4. To restore to homeopathy the credibility and respectability it had before 2005. 5. To make homeopathy more available everywhere.
If you are a UK citizen please sign the petition to keep homeopathy available on the NHS here. When the total is 100,000 the proposal will be debated in parliament. Everyone, please sign the international Avaaz petition to save homeopathy here. We are aiming for thousands of signatures worldwide for this first petition in the global campaign There will be more petitions later, targeted at specific policy-makers. First some facts: Homeopathy has NOT been discredited. There is plenty of good evidence that it works. Homeopathy is NOT pseudoscience. It is part of a new area of science - ultra-dilutions. It is NOT just the placebo effect. It is a surprising but scientific system of healing.
“We have all been sceptics but the facts have been too strong for us.” Sir John Weir, physician to several UK Kings and Queens. We support homeopathy not because we are gullible and stupid, but because we have been forced to by the facts. That is what it means to be scientific - scientists are ‘slaves to the facts’, even if the facts seem strange. The attacks on homeopathy are based on………, yes, on nothing, nothing but fake facts. Fake facts from bad scientific studies, fake facts from a UK Parliamentary Select Committee, fake facts from the Australian Government Commission, fake facts arising from lack of proper examination of the evidence. This looks like deliberate campaign against homeopathy. We need a whistleblower to prove it.
Homeopathy is under attack in the UK, Australia and elsewhere. Governments are attempting to reduce availability of homeopathic treatment. Homeopathy needs your support and the support of the 400 million people worldwide who use it and the many millions more who know that it works. It is a genuine system of healing. Its small doses can have huge effects because it stimulates the life forces which govern our health.
We are told in the mediathat homeopathy is pseudoscience. That is not true. Homeopathic remedies are far more than placebos. There is a plenty of valid scientific evidence which shows that it works. (Read more here.) Water does have a “memory”, and this memory of the original substance can have biological effects. An explanation of how it works is emerging from the latest research on water and its role as the medium for all life. (Read more here.) Homeopathy is not scientifically implausible as long as you are up to date with your science. To undermine homeopathy it is not enough to say that it doesn’t work. That doesn’t provide a reason to ban it. It is also necessary to say that it is dangerous. So the accusation is made that homeopathic medicines could be used instead of more accepted treatments and this could lead to serious illness or death. No evidence that this is happening to a statistically significant extent is presented. Some anecdotal evidence of isolated individual cases is sometimes given. The number of people involved is very small. This is scaremongering. It is important to remember that many people with serious illnesses are taking conventional medicines, without being healed. Almost everyone who dies in the western world is taking orthodox medication. This is a far bigger problem. The dangers of orthodox medication are far greater because it has more side-effects, and it is used far more widely. Side-effects are a major concern, and so is over-treatment. The latter is an issue that has only recently been appreciated. Thousands of deaths annually are involved. This criticism of homeopathy needs to be turned around and sent back to its source. The attack on homeopathy is distracting attention from a much bigger problem.
Homeopathy And The Media: The Campaign Against Homeopathy Is A Fraud. Media coverage of homeopathy before 2005 was mostly positive. In the UK The Daily Telegraph in October 2004 had an article entitled Health Service Lets Complementary Medicine Lend A Healing Hand At Last. There was a double page spread of positive news about homeopathy and other therapies. In 2002 New Scientist magazine devoted a whole issue to complementary therapies, giving enthusiastic support. The attitude of the media was positive and optimistic, encouraging the increasing role that homeopathy was playing. Since 2005 things have changed a great deal. The coverage now is usually biased against homeopathy and it is getting worse. Why has this happened? In 2005 an article appeared which had a huge impact on homeopathy (Shang et al. The Lancet, 27Aug-2 Sept 2005)). This study said that the evidence “is compatible with the notion that the clinical effects of homeopathy are placebo effects”. The other studies of the scientific trials have concluded that homeopathy is better than placebo. The scientific standards of that one negative study have been condemned by independent experts. It has been excluded from registers of good scientific trials. Note that the study said its findings are “compatible with the notion that the clinical effects of homeopathy are placebo effects”. This is a vague statement. In its editorial The Lancet referred to homeopathy's lack of benefit. This is an exaggeration of the slippery conclusion. This ‘non-science’ has become the main foundation for the entire campaign against homeopathy. From its devious origins it has become a headline of fake news. It is that invalid study which is quoted widely and used by government agencies when they are clamping down on homeopathy. This is very bad science, yet it is being done in the name of science. The truth is being turned upside down. These criticisms of homeopathy in the media influence public opinion and this allows policy makers to take action against it. To save homeopathy from these unjustified attacks the media coverage must be changed. Homeopathy is a powerful system of medicine that should be playing an increasing role in our health care globally. It should be getting media and government support. We hope it will get your support.
Action you can take If, like millions of others all over the world, you have had good experience of homeopathy please sign the petition and sign up to our newsletter for occasional updates. Or if you have heard of homeopathy helping someone, or if you have an open mind on the issue, please sign. Please speak out in support of homeopathy when you have chance. We want to give people who know homeopathy works the confidence to say so. We must change the media and the cultural narrative on homeopathy. You may want to remember these four points; Four Ways To Defend Homeopathy 1. There is plenty of good evidence that homeopathy works. The website of the Homeopathy Research Instituteexplains the issues. 2. An explanation of how homeopathy works is emerging from the latest research on water. Homeopathy is not scientifically implausible. 3. Critics of homeopathy often claim the evidence for it is merely anecdotal. This is not true - but in any case good anecdotal evidence is better than bad, commercially distorted so-called “scientific” evidence. In a world of fake news and excess corporate influence over government and the media, we might have to trust real experience. 4. The risk that serious illness will go untreated applies not just to homeopathy but to all types of medicine, including mainstream medicine. Misdiagnosis by orthodox doctors is a far bigger risk, because the vast majority of people having homeopathy in the UK for example, have received their diagnosis before starting homeopathic treatment.
