homoeopathy gets undue recognition from MHRA

I suffer from hay fever, and have done so from being a young child.

20 years ago, I decided to try a homoeopathic remedy instead of the usual antihistamines. I don’t remember the name, but it was a small white tablet which dissolved very quickly on the tongue.

Very soon after, I started to wheeze when exposed to pollen, something I had never experienced with hayfever before, so I stopped taking the tablets immediately. The wheezing however didn’t stop, and since then, whenever I get hayfever symptoms, the wheezing accompanies it.

It is with dismay, therefore that I read that the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) has effectively given credence to homoeopathic remedies by introducing rules to allow them to specify the ailments for which they can be used.

If allopathic treatment is the only available resort to all diseases, why is the number of people who TRY THEIR LUCK by seeking homoeopathic treatment increasing every year?

I’m not against people ‘trying their luck’, it’s their choice. What I disagree with is a government agency giving undue recognition to it.
