Homeopathy Research

Homeopathy and animal testing


Homeopathy is a system of medicine which takes into consideration the unique and complex qualities of each individual case. It is not possible to replicate this uniqueness in laboratory conditions which involve animal testing. It is also contrary to the long-established principles of homeopathy to intentionally cause harm in order to prove the effectiveness of homeopathic treatment.

The Alliance of Registered Homeopaths (ARH) believes that it is entirely possible to advance our knowledge and understanding of homeopathy without causing harm and suffering to animals. Homeopathy research which involves animal testing undertaken in a laboratory will not be displayed on the ARH website.

The ARH supports the responsible use of homeopathy on the farm, where it can be effectively used to reduce the suffering and stress associated with many commonly-applied livestock procedures. By improving the overall health and wellbeing of production animals, the responsible use of homeopathy can help to significantly reduce antibiotic dependency, in line with WHO recommendations.
