Memorandum submitted by Francis Treuherz
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 8,000 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
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
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.
