LMHI Report 2008
The Slovenian Homeopathic Society was established in 1992 to promote the development of homeopathy and to educate its members. In our courses, the classical homeopathic method is taught and our school was accredited by ECH in 2006. We have our own magazine and the first book on homeopathy by a Slovenian author was published last year. The Healing Act, introduced in 2007, established the status of homeopathy, stating that only a person with a medical degree can practice homeopathy. But in the General Practitioners Services Act adopted in 2008 there is a statement saying that a medical doctor who wishes to practice homeopathy must renounce his/her license. So, through this great contradiction of the two laws, practicing homeopathy is still illegal for a medical doctor.
Homeopathy already established itself in the 19th century, that is at a time when other healing methods appeared which official medicine considered to be questionable in many ways.
