England has long been the model and a leader in the resurgence of homoeopathy in the West. Sadly, the concerted efforts by determined sceptics and the press, plus the almost compete ruination of the therapy by false practices like the Sensation method, have rendered in the main, the therapy ineffective.
We have started a Register to point patients in the direction of therapists who still adhere to the tried true and effective methods of practice as defined by Samuel Hahnemann. http://ihmregister.wix.com/irhhp
The application to join the Register is here. https://instituteforhomoeopathicmedicine.wordpress.com/register-application-form/
The following figure represents the ‘medical’ practitioners in the UK and approved non medical staff. However, a quick glance at the non medical Registers, will show a decline in members.
We have concentrated on the figures for the U.K. However a quick look at other European countries, the USA, Australia all show a major drop in student intake.
Until there is a return to the proper practice of the therapy, we will see it merged and become a branch of herbalism or naturopathy in the next few years.
