From time to time, thanks to Google Alerts, I’ll put interesting information on homeopathy from around the world.

January 31, 2010: I continue to neglect this page, but this link, another article by Dana Ullman,  should be of great interest regarding the nature of homeopathic medicines themselves.  We live during a time when homeopathy is under severe attack in the United Kingdom, and this article exposes the hypocrisy of such attacks.

February 10, 2010: Obviously, I’ve neglected this page, but Dana Ullman now writes for the Huffington Post and his recent article discusses some of the attacks on homeopathy that have appeared in the medical literature.

December 13, 2007:  A colleague of mine, Dana Ullman, M.P.H., has written a new book on homeopathy, entitled The Homeopathic Revolution: Why Famous People and Cultural Heroes Choose Homeopathy (North Atlantic Books, 2007).   A press release showed up in my mailbox today, and it is quite interesting.  It seems that Charles Darwin was cured of a chronic illness by homeopathy, and later undertook experiments in fruit flies that seemed to support the action of homeopathic dilutions.  The press release can be viewed here.

November 20, 2007: A patient sent me to Red Flags,
a health related blog, as there were some comments there pertaining on
another matter of interest.  If you will scroll down the page, you’ll
come to a section headed by “On:  The End of Homeopathy?”  This
describes a skeptics admission that current research demonstrates that
there an effect of homeopathically prepared medicines, despite the
implausibility of such an effect

November 14, 2007: Homeopathy in the UK is being attacked as
“unscientific” and a strong movement is afoot there to eliminate the
practice of homeopathy from the National Health Service.  An article
appeared the the The Guardian, which discusses these issues from the perspective of someone involved as a patient and as a volunteer in Africa.

January 1, 2007: A research study done in Scotland, where homeopathy
is very much alive and well in academic settings, reported some interesting
things. While not a “conclusive” proof of homeopathy, it took
an interesting perspective and is worth reading. Click here

November 12, 2004: A group of University research scientists, prominent
in their fields, issued a public statement confirming that homeopathy
had been sufficiently studied to demonstrate a positive effect. Click
