WHO Cautions Against Homeopathic Practices

Submitted by on August 25, 2009 – 11:30 am3 Comments



The World Health Organisation has disregarded the effectuality of homeopathy and has issued a caution stating that those ailing with life ominous diseases like HIV, tuberculosis, influenza, child diarrhoea and malaria must not depend on homeopathy for effectual cure. This was a rejoinder to appeals made by scientists belonging to the Young Science Network who are apprehensive that the endorsement of homeopathy in the third world countries could place the lives of many ailing individuals in jeopardy.

Dr.Robert Hagen, a bio-molecular science scientist from the University of St. Andrews and a part of Voice of Young Science Network has stated that globally, governance must identify the perils of supporting homeopathy in case of life-menacing ailments. He further added that by increasing vigilance of WHO’s stance on homeopathy, they would be helping individuals desist the use of these highly ruinous practices.

Dr. Mario Raviglione, Director of the Stop TB wing, WHO, has declared that their factual, proof-based WHO TB cure and management parameters along with the International Standards of TB Care advocate against the application of homeopathy.

The doctors have even protested the use of homeopathy that was endorsed for treating infant diarrhoea. The speaker for the child and adolescent health and development wing of WHO has announced that they have uncovered no proof that indicates that homeopathy is in any way beneficial as it does not treat or avert dehydration due to diarrhoea, that is totally contradictory in comparison to the scientific procedures and approvals followed by the WHO for the treatment of diarrhoea.

Dr. Nick Beeching, an expert in communicable diseases, Royal Liverpool University Hospital, has claimed that even though infectious diseases like malaria, HIV and TB are known to have increased morbidity rate, they are usually managed or treated by a host of established treatments that have been backed by plentiful knowledge and scientific experiments.
