Homeopathic database updates

Natural History Museum's Plant Names in Homeopathy database

Dr Vilma Bharatan, a Research Associate in the Department of Botany at London’s Natural History Museum, has been working for a number of years on a database of plant/funghal names in homeopathy, translating them to their modern equivalents. Her work was published in book form in 2002, and the updated and expanded database became available online, with the addition of images, in October 2007. The database is freely accessible and searchable.

A further 1,500 images have recently been uploaded.

From the site:

“The homeopathy database is a standard reference system for homeopathic practitioners, and other users of plant remedies. It reconciles the old homeopathic codes with the current botanical code. The information is based on long established remedies in the Homeopathic Materiae Medicae that are now revised and updated and the online access means it can be maintained and updated easily in line with current concepts of botanical nomenclature.”

This valuable resource deserves widespread support, particularly given current attitudes towards homeopathy in the UK media.

Thanks to the current insanity revolving around homeopathy in this country, in both media and blogosphere, it's become necessary to insult your intelligence by explicitly drawing your attention to the obvious fact that any views or advice in this weblog/website are, unless stated otherwise, the opinions of the author alone and should not be taken as a substitute for medical advice or treatment. If you choose to take anything from here that might be construed as advice, you do so entirely under your own recognisance and responsibility.
