The Health Law from 1 January 2005 includes homeopathy in chapter six, articles 166-173 (28). Eligible to practise homeopathy are holders of a master’s degree in the professional areas of medicine or dental medicine (58). ECH and ECCH interpret this as ”only medical doctors and dentists are allowed to practise homeopathy” (28, 50). Until 1989 homeopathy was strictly prohibited (60).
