HOMOEOPATHY, HOW ARE YOU?

Key words: Homoeopathy, Evidence based medicine, Legislation

The Italian Parliament is elaborating a law project regarding the recognition and the teaching of 8 so called “non conventional” medicines, including homoeopathy, and of 6 non conventional medical therapies, including pranotherapy, in name of a “scientific pluralism” and of “the need to harmonize the fundamental principles established by the legislations in the different European countries”. These reasons appear to be unfounded and they sound like to be a pretext, since some of the proposals contained in the law project are clearly in contrast with the common shared knowledge. We shortly analyse the history of homoeopathy, the history of its principles, the feasibility of this medicine inside a culture continuously referring to the evidence based medicine (EBM). We underline the contradiction between this culture and the still insufficient results obtained by the controlled clinical experimentation of the homoeopathic therapies.
