Article by Dr Alex Tournier PhD, Executive Director, Homeopathy Research Institute
The 2006 Swiss Health Technology Assessment (HTA) report on homeopathy was commissioned by the Federal Social Insurance Office (FSIO) within the context of an overall evaluation of Complementary and Alternative Medicines (CAMs). It was written by a team of German speaking academics and edited by G Bornhöft & F Matthiessen of Witten/Herdecke University in Germany.


Homeopathy to the Rescue! « Avilian

Dr Alexander Tournier of the Homeopathy Research Institute tells me, "This is very spurious.
If you talk to sceptics they will acknowledge, for example, a paper that was published in The Lancet in 2005, which is known as 'Shang et al'. That included 110 respectable studies of homeopathy [that showed some positive effects]. One-hundred and ten trials! You can't say that's nothing." Tournier himself became an adherent when he was studying quantum physics at Cambridge University and he became ill with the Epstein Barr virus, a form of chronic fatigue. Homeopathy, he says, cured him. He explains that homeopathy has been available on the NHS since 1948, and that a 2007 study found that six million Britons were users and it was increasing at a rate of around 20 per cent a year. "There's also a big tradition of homeopathic hospitals, like the one in London. I ask Ullman about the Lancet paper mentioned by Tournier.

Epic fail: Scientific Research in Homeopathy Conference 2010

www.skepticat.org [cached]

Alex Tournier
The demeanour of this charming Frenchman couldn't have been more of a contrast to that of the horrendous Milgrom. Not only did he not slag anyone off but his was one of only two presentations at the conference that contained some science and it is rather sad that someone so well qualified is wasting their time on homeopathy. Dr Tournier is a biophysicist and a research fellow for Cancer Research UK. He is also chair of the Homeopathy Research Institute. I don't propose to say much about the content of his presentation because, although I took copious notes, I don't have a copy of the slides he used. (Copies of all the presentations were promised to attendees; none have so far materialised.) Even with the slides, I found his argument difficult to follow and it was even more difficult to take him seriously after he'd introduced his session with probably the daftest remark made by any of the speakers during the entire day, which is that the principle of like treating like - the 'Law of Similars' - is "pretty uncontroversial". Tournier soon made his second ludicrous and dishonest assertion of the day, which was that homeopathy's detractors never pick up on the similarity of the high dilutions principle and hormesis. Oh, good grief! I may not have a PhD in biophysics but even I know the difference between something and nothing. Another reason why I didn't expect to be blown away by Tournier's presentation is that I'd read Gimpy's analysis of what he said last time.


Homeopathy is effective and safe, says Authoritative Government report | Marlborough House Therapy Centre

Alex Tournier, executive director of the Homeopathy Research Institute, said: "With the publication of the English translation of the HTA report, we hope that the debate will finally move from the question, 'does homeopathy work?' to the more pressing questions of 'how does homeopathy work?' and 'what conditions can homeopathy treat effectively and cost-efficiently?"
