"Homeopathy – It's position in the world" - Speech by LMHI-President Dr. Ulrich D. Fischer
Interview with Dr. Irena Gorišek, President of the Slovenian Homeopathic Society and Slovenia’s NVP to the LMHI
During the last 200 years homeopathy proved itself as a safe and effective medical method. In addition to that, homeopathy is less expensive than conventional medicine treatment.
In 1997, the European Commission established that more than 100 million, representing more than 22 per cent European citizens had recourse to homeopathy. The World Health Organisation placed homeopathy among five most often used non‐conventional medical methods in the world. In a majority of EU Member States (with the exception of Slovenia and Sweden) homeopathy is part of regular medical practice carried out by physicians.
