The Spanish Ministry of Health is about to publish a Ministerial Order which would have a devastating effect on homeopathy. Proposed measures include introducing excessively high taxes for homeopathic medicines and denying the possibility of incorporating pharmaceutical innovations. Thus denying the specific nature of these medicines.
If it is approved in its current form, the Order would drastically reduce the number of homeopathic remedies available on the market. Therefore limiting treatment options for the health problems such as allergies, dermatitis, or in mitigating treatments where homeopathy is used to reduce the secondary effects of conventional medicine and improve the patient’s quality of life.
