Boots continued support for homeopathic choice in health care options

Since the opening question of the recent UK Parliamentary Evidence Check for Homeopathy, Boots ‘Pharmacy-led Health and Beauty Retailer’ have come under pressure to justify the presence of homeopathic remedies on its shelves. This was quickly followed by an open letter organised by the Merseyside Skeptics Society asking them to remove them.

A letter to Boots in support of its continued supply of homeopathic treatments today received this response:

“Thank you for taking the time to contact us about the sale of Homeopathic products in our stores.

At Boots we take our responsibilities as the leading Pharmacy-led Health & Beauty retailer in the UK very seriously and as part of this we pride ourselves on being able to offer all of our customers a choice of products that support them in their day-to-day lives. We know that many people believe in the benefits of complementary medicines and we aim to offer the products we know our customers want.

I’m delighted to hear that you want us to continue to sell these items and you’ll be pleased to know that you can still find these in our stores. Additionally, our Pharmacists are trained healthcare professionals and they’re on hand to offer advice on the safe use of complementary medicines in line with guidance offered by the Royal Pharmaceutical Society of Great Britain.

Thank you once again for your positive feedback and, of course, for your valued custom.

Yours sincerely

Boots Customer Care”

  2. Good work, Boots!

    People demand homeopathy because it works–because it’s safe and efficacious.

    That’s been proven by 200 years’ of documented clinical work and 150+ methodologically reliable, controlled studies published in at least 24 international and national, conventional journals like Cancer, International Journal of Oncology, Rheumatology, Journal of Head Trauma Rehabilitation, Pediatrics, Pediatrie, Allergologie and British Journal of Pharmachology. A recent study evidencing for homeopathy was done at M.D. Anderson Cancer Center, Texas U., one of the most prestigious cancer centers in the US. It found that four homeopathic remedies were able to induce programmed cell death in breast cancer cells. A previous M.D. Anderson study on cancer also evidenced for homeopathy. Clinical work shows that homeopathy alone can treat cancer successfully and without damaging surrounding cells or destroying the immune system. This is a wonderful opportunity for anyone and especially for children (and adults) too frail for conventional treatment.
