Previously this site belonged to the European Central Council of Homeopaths (ECCH) but they changed their domain to http://www.homeopathy-ecch.org/. Therefore for more updated information about their activities or if you need to look at some of their documents, newsletters, research, regulations and policies, please visit that site.
On this site, I’ve recovered some of the news headlines which were published previously on the site some years ago. I believe in homeopathy and that why I found it critical to recover that content as was earlier published. I will still be updating the site with more information about homeopathy that I come across.
European Central Council of Homeopaths (ECCH)
The European Central Council of Homeopaths (ECCH) is an international council whose membership is made up of established associations of professional homeopaths existing within individual countries. Established in 1990 ECCH focuses its representational activities within the boundaries of Europe and specifically within the European Union. The Council is non profit-making unincorporated association registered in the United Kingdom.
ECCH is also an active member of the Brussels-based European Public Health Alliance (EPHA), a Corresponding Member of the European Coalition for Homeopathic and Anthroposophic Medical Products (ECHAMP) and has NGO Participatory Status with the Council of Europe.
The aim of ECCH is:
To encourage the highest standards of professional practice of Classical Homeopathy in homeopaths in order that they are best able to restore and improve the health of patients.
Membership of the Council
Professional Membership of the Council is open to an established association of professional homeopaths in any country which:

Activities of the Council
The Council disseminates a list of its member associations to enable members of public in each country to seek the best homeopathic treatment from competent, well trained and effectively regulated homeopaths.
The Council meets two times a year in meetings which rotate between countries where there are members. An active secretariat is maintained in the United Kingdom where a part-time employed General Secretary deals with business of the Council and a wide range of inquiries from members of the general public and other organisations. The General Secretary also initiates and attends meetings with various organisations relevant to the purposes of the Council.
As well as publishing a number of policy documents on subjects such as education, provings, and public health. One important role of ECCH is to act as an advisory body on homeopathic matters to national and international governmental institutions.
