12/05/2014Homeopathy officially recognised in Belgium

Homeopathy officially recognised in Belgium Homeopathy received a legal recognition on Monday, but at the same time stricter regulations have been imposed on the sector.

The federal government gave the green light in July last year, but the Royal Decree has only now been published in the Staatsblad, the official news letter issued by the Belgian government.

GPs, dentists and midwives can only call themselves homeopaths if they have followed an extra homeopathy training.

Those with a Bachelor degree in health care who were already active in the sector, like nurses, can continue their activities under a temporary measure.

The official recognition does not imply an automatic refund from the health mutual.

The sector is happy with the new framework, arguing that the changes will result in higher quality standards.

"This is a very important step and it can only be to the benefit of the patients' safety. Patients will know whether or not they are dealing with someone who correctly applies homeopathic medicine", says Leon Schepers of the Unio Homeopathica Belgica.

Recognition yes.
Better no.What this recognition is a terroristic attack from the regular medicine.
They want only to stop homeopathy.
Witch doctor wil take 2 houres for a anamnase or casus?
In this time he can see a dozen people to pay.Kassa kassa.
Healing a patient is not the first worry or care.
Thie like you come back for pilds
We dont need house garden and kitchen or complex homeopathy.

Great. Homeopathy is getting the long awaited status it deserved. Nice to see that millions of patients got benefited with its medicine before the Govt.thought of recognizing it. Kudos to all those worked for it.

Congratulations Belgium! Patient satisfaction with Homeopathy rates very highly, which is why it is growing at a rate of about 30% annually worldwide.

Congratulations Belgium! Now the market for sugar pills and water with a long memory of what's been in it (think about that!) will help the economy grow out of it's doldrums!

I can't help myself, but I simply must share this video with the Expatica public.
