Homeopathy Awareness Week (HAW)

Homeopathy Awareness Week (HAW) runs from 10 – 16 April every year.

This year, Homeopathy UK has very kindly volunteered to take the lead on promoting HAW to the public, and creating some materials for practitioners to share via their own social media networks.

The theme of this year’s campaign is ‘From Patient to Practitioner’.

We know that many people decide to train as a homeopath because they have experienced a positive outcome as a patient. In many cases, these people have had totally different careers before homeopathy. But most of them have found homeopathy to be more satisfying.

The ‘From Patient to Practitioner’ campaign started with a survey of homeopaths from the UK’s three main registering bodies – practitioners were asked a variety of questions – from what made them first decide to study homeopathy, to what their former career had been. We also asked whether they attended any homeopathy courses for the general public, before starting formal training.

The survey provided some fascinating insights and stories from both practising and student homeopaths.

Homeopathy-UK will be sharing this information on social media throughout the week, so please lookout for their posts on Facebook and Instagram, and re-post wherever you can.

We’ve copied the relevant links below, including one to an infographic which summarises the survey results, one to a list of homeopathy courses available to the general public, and one to a list of colleges where you can train as a homeopath.

News

A radical report provides some sensible solutions to our current crisis in healthcare delivery. PGIH CAM report December 2018 was an important month for natural medicine. Following consultation with 113 different CAM organisations, the All-Party Parliamentary Group for Integrated Health (PGIH) launched an important report entitled ‘Integrated Healthcare: Putting the Pieces Together’. This report highlights some of the problems facing healthcare delivery today, and urges the NHS to adopt a  proper ‘whole person’ approach to health, which focuses on disease prevention and tackling the root cause of illness. It is sobering to note that around 70% of total health expenditure in England is used up by treating the 30% of the population who present with one or more long-term conditions. The number of patients with multi morbidities is predicted to rise to 18 million by 2025, which is just six years away! Clearly this situation is unsustainable.

At the moment, most patients are treated according to their particular condition, so when they present with two or more different diseases, each disease is treated separately. This in turn can lead to polypharmacy, over-medication, adverse drug reactions/interactions, and a further deterioration in the individual’s health. The fact is, we really do not know the long-term consequences of combining various drugs over an extended period of time.  If we carry on medicating at our present rate, it is highly likely that we will create a health-crisis of an unprecedented scale.

The PGIH report, which can be read in full by clicking here,  identifies the CAM sector as an under-utilised resource, which could work in collaboration with conventional medicine in order to improve patient outcomes and ease the burden on the NHS. In an appeal for the adoption of a new strategy in health delivery, Chair of the PGIH, David Tredinnick stated;

Despite positive signs that ministers are proving open to change, words must translate into reality….. Multimorbidity is more apparent now in the UK than at any time in our recent history. …. the good news is that many self-limiting conditions can be treated at home with the most minimal of expert intervention. Other European governments facing similar challenges have considered the benefits of exploring complementary, traditional and natural medicines. If we are to hand on our most invaluable institution to future generations, so should we.’

The whole emphasis of the report is on treating patients holistically, as unique individuals with specific needs, as opposed to a series of diseases which are to be treated separately. The recommendations made in the PGIH report are practical, achievable, and based on sound information. In all probability, nothing will change in the short-term as a result of its publication, but this report provides invaluable material with which to work towards effective and sustainable healthcare for the future.
