MILGROM, Homeopathy Research Institute, London, UK. assesses the reasons for homeopathy being under pressure and threatenedd in the UK, despite its successful and continuous use for over 200 years.


Though homeopathy has been in successful and continuous use for well over 200 years, in the United Kingdom it is under growing pressure, from scientific detractors and sections of the media.


As such, homeopathy's free National Health Service provision is threatened because it is derided as 'unproven', 'unscientific', and even 'deadly'.


While refuting these and other detractions, this paper considers possible reasons for the current plight of homeopathy UK.


Thus, the current attacks against homeopathy should be viewed more in the context of the globalised pharmaceutical industry which is itself in crisis, and a succession of UK governments seemingly supine in the face of legislation originating from the European Union.
