In the UK anti homeopathy political lobbyists are using social media, in the case below Twitter, to intimidate pharmacies into taking remedies off their shelves. I would like to encourage you, your co-workers and friends to support freedom of choice in health care by taking a moment to use the direct links to their Twitter pages to thank these businesses for stocking homeopathic products. @LloydsPharmacy and BartsHealth

In the comment section of a positive article about homeopathy, Noel Thomas, a medical doctor in UK, questions the anti homeopathy position of one of the skeptics; Alan Henness. The entire article is HERE
"Helen Beaumont’s article is a calm and accurate precis of the pressures and confusions that make it more difficult to offer a homeopathic service to all those who would benefit from it.
After using homeopathy alongside conventional meds in my NHS GP work for about thirty years, I remain extremely sceptical – hardly a week goes by when I am not amazed by the effect of an individualised homeopathic remedy on a patient’s problem. The effects I see are not explained by the Natural Sciences degree I took before medical school, they make no sense at all in that respect. But if you follow the homeopathic method of history taking and remedy selection, then things happen that science cannot currently make sense of.
Are we unthinking slaves to science, denying that there are scientific phenomena beyond what we currently know, or do we do what makes our patients better, safely, cheaply, when they may already have tried the conventional options or had side effects ?
The obsession with RCTs takes no account of the fact that homeopathic treatment needs to be individualised, to be effective. This makes homeopathic RCTs a daunting prospect – I once took part in an RCT in primary care which was very time consuming, and demanding enough when one medication was involved, for a very discrete symptom.
Without recourse to the RCT “argument” , denigrators of homeopathy have little to say.
When did one of them last listen to people with anger problems, PTSD, PMT, chronic depression, arthralgia, hear how their condition, resistant to conventional meds, and then share with them the satisfaction that homeopathic remedies can bring ?
Forget about the placebo effect, you should attempt to use it maximally in every consultation.
Forget about “ a long chat with a friendly homeopath “ – many GP homeopathic remedies are chosen in a ten minute consultation, albeit with the history that the GP carries in his head.
Forget about ‘Patient variability “ . After 40 years in a poor industrial area, one is aware of the myriad external and internal circumstances that can influence disease progression or regression. Why do amazing things not happen when one gives a new conventional med, as they regularly do with homeopathic remedies. ?
Many medical homeopaths who have no private practice, continue, way beyond normal retirement age, to treat people because they enjoy the satisfaction of seeing individuals and their families benefit. With annual NHS appraisal and regular GMC revalidation, of course.
Alan Henness thinks we misuse the evidence and mislead consumers. I have responded to similar claims by him elsewhere. (1) Alan Henness is upset at any suggestion that he is paid for repetitive letter writing on a subject that he has not admitted to studying nor practising.
Perhaps he will enlighten us about his motivation, and what he thinks of the condition that one has to be “ a medical or healthcare professional” to register and comment, on this site. ?"

Don't think you can't defend homeopathy? Think again. It does not need to be this eloquent, but when it comes from the heart, it can be brilliant. Just DO it! From the heart; today by “TH”, to this negative article about homeopathy HERE His entire statement is quoted below.
“Opponents of homeopathy make much of this and that report or study. A Swiss government commissioned report supports homeopathy, an Australian government report doesn't etc etc and on and on it goes. Both opponents and supporters of homeopathy will always use examples which support their case, such as Mike below. Despite the controversy, homeopathy remains available on the NHS in the UK and is part of the healthcare system in many countries around the world. Clearly there is no definitive view which finalises the issue.
The most logical solution is to try homeopathy. Skeptics claim to be the most logical of people but go out of their way to dissuade people from trying homeopathy. Skeptics also claim that there is nothing in homeopathy. In that case, there isn't any harm in trying it. They will counter that with saying 'oh but people will then miss out on taking essential medication.' But anyone who knows even the basics of homeopathy will know that there isn't an issue with taking homeopathic remedies alongside pharmaceutical medicines. In light of this, the skeptic argument falls down. For example, I used to suffer from migraines. I would still take painkillers but I also took homeopathic remedies. I haven't suffered from migraines since taking the homeopathic remedies and I no longer take painkillers.There is nothing to lose and much to gain. Remedies cost less that £4 so it really isn't much to lose-the price of a pint. However I have gained my health and haven't had a day off work since starting to use homeopathy whereas I used to be off work regularly due to migraines.
Anyone can do what I did OR they can argue endlessly about conflicting evidence. Of course I expect a barrage of attack for saying this and that is what I find so illogical. Would it be logical for me to cease using homeopathic remedies when they are helping me? Of course not. But that's what the so called rational/logical skeptics would have me do. No thanks, I will stick to the scientific method which has at its heart-experience. Skeptics care little for experience and dismiss it as anecdotal and therefore invalid but nothing compares with what you gain from real world experience, as any doctor will tell you. Compare it if you like to reading endless books or studies on how to ride a bike. You only learn how to actually ride the bike when you get on the thing. Perhaps not the best analogy ever but the point stands. If you want to know if homeopathy works, don't take my word or indeed a skeptic's word-try it for yourself.”

The noted radio talk show host, PhD researcher and author Michael Savage, praised homeopathy on his radio show today. He noted that he had suffered last week from the worst case of the flu he had ever had his entire life. Stating that most people would normally not return to work in such a short time (2-3 days), he attributed his swift recovery (which included a strep throat requiring an antibiotic) to his use of herbals, vitamins and homeopathy! His radio show "The Savage Nation" is broadcast nationwide in the United States and has an estimated following of 4 to 5 million people. His newest publication, a fictional thriller "Countdown to Mecca" is available at most major book stores and on Amazon Books
