001. at, as reported by Darren James, in "No More Homeopathy on the Spanish National Health Service" (2017-08-03), we're told:

"[the] Spanish Ministry of Universal and Public Health has sent an instruction to all health departments to remind them that homeopathy is excluded from the portfolio of national health services.  Furthermore, it outlaws practices described as pseudoscience and their promotion and development in public health centres [...] the official list of activities that are not considered as health care include naturopathic medicine, naturopathy, traditional Chinese medicine, acupuncture, herbal medicine, nutritional therapy or vitamin treatments.  Also excluded are manipulation and body-based practices, osteopathy, chiropractic, lymphatic drainage, reflexology, shiatsu or aromatherapy, mind and body techniques, yoga, meditation, prayer, kinesiology, hypnotherapy, sophistry, art therapy, energy-based techniques, qi-gong or chi-kung, reiki, floral therapy, biomagnetic therapy and any other similar activity.  Apart from the instruction, the Ministry has asked to withdraw recognition of homeopathy as a medicine. 'The available scientific evidence concludes that homeopathy has not proved its efficacy in any particular clinical situation,' it states, adding that 'considering homeopathy as a medicine represents a real risk that directly influences the protection and restoration of health and may lead to their use in place of recognised and proven medicinal products' [...]";
