Homeopathy in Turkey

New regulation found after the CAMbrella deliveries:


Turkey October 27, 2014 New law on Regulations for Traditional and Complementary Medicine Practice. Read more in our article on Turkey

Notice! All text below is copied from the CAMbrella report - delivered Dec 31, 2012 As there is no general CAM or specific homeopathic regulation in Turkey, homeopathy is not legally recognized. Physicians preserve the right to treat their patients with all means, including the use of homeopathy (289).

The inaccessibility of homeopathic remedies and homeopathic text books in Turkish is a great obstacle for homeopathy practitioners in Turkey (289). The Turkish Classical Homeopathy Association, www.turkiyehomeopati.com, established in 2003, is a full member of the international homeopathic medical society (Liga Medicorum Homoeopathica Internationalis (LMHI)) (289).

In 2008 they had a goal of joining the European Committee for Homeopathy (ECH) (289). The association consists of about 90 medical doctors, dentists and veterinarians with diverse training in classical homeopathy. They collaborate with InHom (European Institute of Homeopathy) for courses and training. In 2008, nine medical doctors had completed proper training and were full-time practicing classical homeopaths (289).

The association offers guidance for the recognition and regulation of classical homeopathy in Turkey and had in 2008 (289) forwarded suggestions of laws and by-laws to the MOH (289).
