Das spanische Gesundheitsministerium hat einen aktuellen Report zum Thema “Natur- und Alternativmedizin” veröffentlicht.
Darin heißt es unter anderem:
Regarding homeopathy, the report cites nine scientific studies in dealing with a wide range of health problems from flu to cancer, dealing with the side effects of chemotherapy, as well as osteoarthritis, birth induction, asthma, dementia, depression, and lactation colic. It says the results are “contradictory” and point to “a placebo effect.”
That said, homeopathy treatments carried out by professionals are “safe,” above all because doses tend to be heavily diluted to the point that patients are often taking in little more than water.”
