State of Research for Homeopathy

March 4, 2021 @ 2:30 pm - 3:30 pm EST

Many in the homeopathy sector say there is "loads" of evidence homeopathy works. Detractors say there is no evidence at all that homeopathy is anything more than a placebo effect. As is often the way, the reality is somewhere in between these extremes. In this presentation we will look at the true status of the clinical evidence base for homeopathy – including both its strengths and weaknesses – as well as identifying where some of the frequently repeated myths surrounding this topic originate, so they can be firmly dispelled.


Rachel Roberts
, BSc(Hons), MCH, RSHom, FSHom, FFHom(Hon), is Chief Executive of the Homeopathy Research Institute (HRI), a UK-based charity dedicated to promoting high quality research in homeopathy at an international level. HRI is committed to accurate communication of the evidence base in homeopathy and promoting new essential research projects of the highest quality.


Rachel has a first class honours degree in Biological Sciences (Physiology) from the University of Birmingham. She graduated from the College of Homeopathy, London in 1997 and was in private clinical practice until 2012. Rachel lectured in both homeopathy and medical sciences at various colleges in the UK and overseas before moving into the field of homeopathy research. She held the post of Research Consultant for the Society of Homeopaths from 2008-2012 and was awarded an Honorary Fellowship in 2013 to acknowledge her contribution to Homeopathy. Rachel joined HRI part-time in 2010 and has worked for the Institute full-time since 2012. In 2018 Rachel was awarded an Honorary Fellowship by the Faculty of Homeopathy in recognition of her work in the field of homeopathic research.
