Homeopathy in Estonia | Cam-Regulation

Homeopathy in Estonia

There is no statutory regulation or restricting legislation of homeopathy in Estonia. Both medical health professionals and non-medically qualified practitioners are allowed to practise homeopathy (28, 41, 50).

The profession of homeopathy is regulated with special professional standards (96). At present 14 professionals have obtained a certificate as homeopath and 3 of them (1 doctor, 2 nurses) are also registered with the Health Board (101).

The Estonian Homeopathic Association (Eesti Homöpaatia Ühing) is a member of ECH (the European Committee for Homeopathy) (28).

Non-medical homeopaths that have passed the Professional Board exam (the Professional CAM Board is a state-recognized entity) are free to practice (101, 102).
