Homeopathy Awareness Week
Homeopathy Awareness Week kicks off on 10th April, and coincides with World Homeopathy Awareness Week and Dr Samuel Hahnemann’s birthday - the founder of homeopathy. The School of Homeopathy is committed to raising the profile of homeopathy and natural healthcare and is passionate about Homeopathy Awareness Week. To celebrate health and homeopathy during Homeopathy Awareness Week 2019, the School is supporting this years initiatives:
Themed around the slogan #TryHomeopathy the campaign will raise awareness of the benefits of homeopathy and encourage the public to try it for themselves.
The Cost of Health
The School of Homeopathy is actively involved with 4Homeopathy, Mani Norland (Principal) is vice chair. 4Homeopathy, working with a major marketing agency to help spread the message, have commissioned a survey, ‘The Cost of Health’ exploring how much people spend on medicines, fitness and well-being.

The annual Homeopathy Awareness Week campaign provides patients, supporters and practitioners of homeopathy with a platform from which they can join forces to inform the public of homeopathy’s health benefits and educate those who may be unaware of what treatment involves, as well as to emphasise that patients around the UK have a choice in healthcare.
Mani Norland, Principal says, “One in eight people in the UK use homeopathy, it helps thousands of people every day, yet this system of safe and gentle natural medicine is often misunderstood and misrepresented.” He continues, “In a recent survey of homeopaths, it was found that the four top issues they helped their patients with were: skin complaints, anxiety, female health issues and IBS/gut/digestive issues. The top four reasons people choose homeopathy are: they were referred by a friend or relative who had been helped themselves, they have tried everything else and nothing else worked, they had used homeopathy before, and they had serious side effects from conventional treatment or conventional treatment has not worked. These survey results and the information we have provided online on our new ‘Homeopathy Awareness’ website show the importance of raising awareness about this system of natural medicine.”
Homeopathy Awareness Week 2018
Last years campaign:
Make a movie
Share your homeopathy story
For Homeopathy Awareness Week 2018 we invited people to share their homeopathy story – make a movie and spread the word!
Videos are currently the most frequently seen and shared medium on social media, and short videos (30 seconds to 2 minutes) are popular.
The project is ongoing but was started in 2018 to celebrating Hahnemann’s birthday and Homeopathy Awareness Week.
School of Homeopathy students got involved and made movies to help inspire new patients and let people know about the benefits of homeopathy and natural health. These movies and others were shared on the Homeopathy Worked for Me FaceBook page. Below is one of the 5 posters that fronted the campaign.
Create a Link
Together we are stronger
To help promote Homeopathy Awareness Week we asked people to link their websites to the new Homeopathy Awareness Week websites.
On Monday 16th April 2018 at 12.30pm hundreds of homeopaths and patients joined together outside the Houses of Parliament to march in London in support of homeopathy and natural health for animals. The march was led by the British Association of Homeopathic Veterinary Surgeons. For more details please contact us at: www.bahvs.com

Homeopathy Awareness Website
The School of Homeopathy's awareness website!
Many people today are confused about homeopathy. The School created a new website in an attempt to address the need for better information, evidence and facts about homeopathy. The Homeopathy Awareness Week website covers four key areas: about homeopathy, homeopathy on the NHS, the evidence and research and how it works. This website uses the same information that is provided in it's booklet 'Homeopathy - 20 Questions Answered'. The School also sent one of these booklets to every MP and CCG in the UK.
In a recent Homeopathy Awareness Week survey of homeopaths, it was found that the four top issues they helped their patients with were: skin complaints, anxiety, female health issues and IBS/gut/digestive issues. If you have not tried homeopathy, then why not give it a go, what have you got to lose?
