UK Homeopaths Advertising Guidelines


The UK Society of Homeopaths has published guidelines for promotion of your practice that will not conflict with the ASA. They can be read HERE

If you are a homeopath practicing in the UK and have received a complaint from the ASA about your website, the Society of Homeopaths has this posted on their site. "If so we are here to support you every step of the way."

If you use Twitter and feel you are being intimidated by anti homeopathy activists, you can block and/or report them using this link

The find a homeopath page of The Professional Standards Authority of the UK can be found HERE

As time permits, I will continue to add to this page. If you are a practicing homeopath and are now ASA compliant, please send me a link to post on this page. Your ideas will be helpful for others.

This homeopath's site is ASA compliant.

  1. That reads like you can make ambiguous claims about vague things but the moment anyone asks for specific or "how?" you can't say anything without breaching the Code.

    1. The "how" can be discussed during the private consultation between the patient and homeopath. Patients seeking alternative therapies, including homeopathy, are already well informed. Remember that many patients seek alternative treatments when conventional medicine has been unable to help, or made their condition worse.

    2. >>> The "how" can be discussed during the private consultation between the patient and homeopath.<<<

      Half correct.

      The point is that if the homeopath was to present a "How" in their advertising it could be challenged on the grounds of there being no evidence to support any claim. If there was a single shred of evidence the UK Society of Homeopaths would have been listing that as how the claim should be presented. But they can't. So, if a homeopathy was to answer that question in a consultation they would be either presenting speculation or lying.

      >>>Patients seeking alternative therapies, including homeopathy, are already well informed.<<<

      I note your reality and discard it as fantastical because while you assert this you consistently fail to provide statistics to back your claim.

      >>>Remember that many patients seek alternative treatments when conventional medicine has been unable to help, or made their condition worse.<<<

      This is also known on as the dishonest preying on the vulnerable and desperate. It's abhorrent.

    3. What "Gold" can't admit is that there is plenty of evidence for homeopathy including replicated research proving homeopathy is effective in treating 23 disease conditions including ADHD, arsenic toxicity, blood coagulation, depression and female infertility.

      Another piece of evidence supporting homeopathy is the Swiss HTA. What Gold won't acknowledge is that the ASA refused to accept the HTA as evidence by claiming it contained no RCT's even though it clearly does. The HTA authors heard about this bogus claim and contacted the ASA which refused to acknowledge the true facts. That is the falsity on which the attacks on homeopathy, homeopaths and their patients is based.

      Such a pity there are people in this world who want to deprive others of safe, effective medicine and who will stoop low to achieve their agenda.
