Memorandum submitted by Francis Treuherz HO 25

 

 

1 I am responding to the invitation to submit material to the Science and Technology Committee of the House of Commons on the subject of homeopathy.

2 In relation to the licensing of homeopathic products and the evidence base on homeopathic products and services I wish to make you aware of one of the largest resources of literature about homeopathy. The library collection has well over 8000 volumes from the beginnings of homeopathy to the present day, in books and journals. This is an invitation to members of the committee to come and study the books in my private library in northwest London. I have one of the largest such collections in the world. There is a catalogue and many of the books are on computer and fully searchable.

3 I am sending to the committee a copy of a book, Homeopathy: Science or Myth, by Bill Gray MD. (Berkeley California, 2000, North Atlantic Books). This book is a first rate introduction to homeopathy and the contents are relevant to your interests, including clinical evidence and public policy concerns.

4 I am sending to the committee a copy of a report on homeopathic work in NHS primary care: Homeopathy in General Practice, by Francis Treuherz RSHom. (Northampton, 2000, Society of Homeopaths), which I hope is of interest.
