Switzerland has regulated homeopathy and has registered homeopath as a profession in the EU regulated professions database under “Natural health practitioner” as naturopathe/ homeopath.

2 countries (Latvia, Liechtenstein) have regulations that may be seen as a regulation of a homeopathy profession. Latvia has regulated “homeopathic doctors” Liechtenstein has registered “Naturheilpraktiker with a homeopathy specialty”.

Table from the CAMbrella report – delivered Dec, 2012. (Click on image to enlarge)

The table “Homeopathy – Who may practise” is an example of how difficult it can be to understand the consequences of national regulation.

We have, to our best knowledge, listed whether the different categories of practitioners in each country are allowed to practise homeopathy. If only medical doctors with CAM additional education are allowed to practise, we have put “No” in the column for medical doctors.

This is done in the same way for other health personnel. If the regulation (or absence of regulation) is too unclear for us we have inserted a question mark.

The countries with CAM practitioners like Heilpraktiker, Natur heilpraktiker, healer and likewise may not be correctly represented.

We have decided not to introduce this table for other treatments because of the unclear
situation.
