    [post_content] => Richard O'Quinn, the Interim Chief Executive of the Society of Homeopaths has written to The Times to rebuke the inaccurate reporting on the homeopathy profession and COVID-19.

The articles published on Monday 13th April, Homeopaths ‘risking lives with bogus coronavirus treatments’ and the Leading Article, The Times view of homeopaths promoting bogus coronavirus treatments: Junk Medicine are part of a series of anti homeopathy articles published in the newspaper over the past few months prompting a response by the Society.

Richard O'Quinn said "It is hard to believe that such an august title as The Times would publish articles so lacking in balance, objectivity and factual accuracy.  The claim that “hundreds of homeopathic practitioners across the country are promoting treatments against Covid-19 infection” is just not true.

In this time when we are facing a worldwide health crisis, we should work together for the greater good. Complementary medicine, including homeopathy, has much to offer."

This letter forms part of the Society's ongoing attempt to readdress the balance in the media
