UK survey shows high level of interest in Homeopathy and CAM

10 April 2019 at 14:52

Survey confirms high level of interest in Homeopathy and CAM in the UK

A third of people surveyed were open to trying Homeopathy or other alternative therapies. The survey of 2000 people conducted by OnePoll found that the average Brit will spend more than £65,000 over their lifetime looking after their health & wellbeing and would  consider homeopathy as part of their healthcare package.

 

4Homeopathy commissioned a health survey to explore the attitudes and spending habits of Brits towards their health. It's clear that large numbers of us are willing to invest in our wellbeing and there is an increasing openness to trying complementary therapies including homeopathy.

The survey found that a third of adults would consider using complementary or homeopathic alternatives for an ailment in the future, and one in six are already using alternative methods to help with their illness.

These results reveal the shift in public awareness towards living healthier lifestyles, eating well and getting regular exercise as natural ways of combatting stress and disease. Homeopathy fits perfectly into this integrated model of health and will appeal to people who are looking for a complementary approach that treats individuals and will work alongside conventional medicine.

Mani Norland, Principal at The School of Homeopathy says "This is good news for students and graduates who are making the transition of stepping into the homeopathic profession. To know that a good cross-section of the public are open to exploring alternative treatments gives graduates the confidence to establish and grow a homeopathic practice."

4H are encouraging Brits to explore alternative avenues of healthcare, especially if traditional routes are causing anxiety or are proving ineffective. Homeopathy Awareness Week represents is a great time for those new to homeopathy to give it a try. Find a registered homeopath here: FindAHomeopath.org

Details from the survey:

A poll of 2,000 adults found Brits spend an average of £1,091.26 each year on gym memberships, vitamins and supplements, prescriptions, exercise classes and healthy foods. Over the course of a 60.3 year average adult lifespan, that adds up to a staggering £65,802.98.

The typical Brit spends an average of £113.46 each year on gym memberships, another £123.60 on vitamins and supplements, and an extra £66 on protein powders. They’ll also spend £28.98 a year on new exercise gear, clothing and equipment to help with their workouts. And those who use alternative medicines and therapies will spend £31.98 a year on the treatments.

The research was conducted by 4Homeopathy, in support of Homeopathy Awareness Week (10-16th April). A spokesperson for 4Homeopathy said: “Looking after your health is one of the most important things you can do. We know that many people – with Prince Harry and Meghan Markle being the latest high-profile examples - are already enjoying or exploring the positive health benefits of complementary and alternative medicines.

4Homeopathy is an alliance of 11 of the UK’s largest homeopathic organisations working together to promote the benefits of homeopathy.
