The Trossel judgement may have serious implications for 'alternative' therapies

I was interesteed to note one of the main reasons for Dr Trossel's

"You continue to advocate untested and unproved treatments, using
your status as a registered doctor to reinforce your personal beliefs"

Where does this leave the medically qualified homeopathists?
