The National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC) in a confidential draft paper has stated homeopathy as an 'unethical' and purely baseless science.

In a copy of the leaked NHMRC draft seen by Fairfax, it is 'unethical for health practitioners to treat patients using homeopathy, for the reason that homeopathy (as a medicine or procedure) has been shown not to be efficacious'.

This draft was not meant for distribution and is based on a 2010 evaluation of homeopathy by a British parliamentary committee paper that claimed the practice to be no better than a placebo. The paper says that homeopathy makes use of a range of plant, mineral and animal products and while, they are not entirely harmful in general, might subject the patient to severe health complications as well as lots of risks in case some of the conventional treatments were called off in its favor.

However, the Australian homeopaths have turned down the claims that their treatments and processes are 'unethical' and fail at work.
