Turkish LMHI Report 2008
The Ministry of Health still has not passed an act regulating Traditional and Complementary Alternative Medicine. Therefore, homeopathy is not legally recognized, but physicians preserve the right to treat their patients with all means, including the use of homeopathy. One of the main problems we battle is the inconvenience of the inaccessibility of homeopathic remedies and homeopathic text books in Turkish. The association has 90 members consisting of medical doctors, dentists, and veterinarians though only nine medical doctors and one veterinarian physician have completed their proper training and are full time practicing classical homeopaths. At this year’s LHMI congress, which was held in Belgium, The Turkish Classical Homeopathy Association was accepted as a full member.
