(NaturalNews) A draft document not intended for public release has revealed that theNational Health and Medical Research Council(NHMRC) in Australia is planning to nix homeopathy from its list of covered medical treatments.The Agereports that the draft paper, which was recently leaked to reporters, dubs homeopathy an “unethical” form of medical treatment, and alleges that patients who choose homeopathy over conventional medicine could be putting themselves at risk.
Though it has been used safely and effectively for hundreds of years by millions of people around the world, homeopathy is increasingly finding itself in the crosshairs of government-run healthcare programs like NHMRC that are heavily influenced by pharmaceutical interests determined to destroy access to natural forms of treatment. And unless the natural health community fights back, the practice of homeopathy “down under” could soon be a thing of the past.
Contrary to conventional belief, homeopathy is not merely a placebo. Numerous peer-reviewed scientific studies conducted over the years have shown that homeopathy can help treat respiratory ailments and allergies, influenza, fibromyalgia, rheumatoid arthritis, childhood diarrhea, post-surgical abdominal surgery recovery, and attention deficit disorder (ADD), as well as many other conditions (http://www.naturalnews.com/031210_Luc_Montagnier_Homeopathy.html).
