Fierce debate about the efficacy (or otherwise) of homeopathy has been raging for a long while. Proponents swear by it, those in opposition dismiss it out of hand in the same way as Flat-earthers deny all evidence that the earth is round! For some it seems to have become a personal vendetta to demolish homeopathy and deny people their right to choose how they care for their health.
Traditional complementary and alternative medicine (T&CM) use worldwide
The prevalence of T&CM usage worldwide can no longer be ignored by the practitioners of evidence-based medicine. The burden on healthcare systems around the world is growing daily. And like it or not, a large percentage of the world's population relies on and/or uses some form of Complementary, Alternative or Traditional Medicine. Individuals want to use T&CM and are prepared to pay for it.
The highly flawed, inaccurate and misleading Australian report on Homeopathy compiled by the NHMRC is being used as justification for regulatory changes which could restrict access to homeopathic medicines in Australia. If this happens, a precedent is then set for other countries to follow suit, citing the Australian report as sufficient evidence.
Australians are uniting to protect their right to choose T&CM via the 'Your Health, Your Choice' campaign. By supporting this campaign you can protect your right to choose how you support your health too.
The aim is simple — to get as many people as possible, globally, to register their support for the ‘Your Health, Your Choice’ campaign by entering their name on the Your Health, Your Choicewebsite.
Although the campaign aims to protect the public’s right to choose T&CM as a whole, the website will generate a petition calling specifically for an Australian Senate inquiry into the NHMRC 2015 report on Homeopathy.
Registrations of support from other countries will demonstrate to the Australian government that ‘the world is watching’.
