In a 2009 study, homeopathy stimulated significant improvement in people with traumatic brain injury even when that injury was of many years duration.
Patients entered the study via their rehabilitation therapists and neurologists after struggling with persistent problems such as short attention span, slowed thinking, reduced ability to learn and process information, headaches, fatigue, sleep disturbances, impatience; frustration, confusion, poor judgement, depression, mood swings, blurred vision, vomiting, and other symptoms common to brain injury.
They were classified as having mild traumatic brain injury.
The treatment group reported significant improvement, especially in their ability to understand technical or work-related information, follow instructions, read newspapers or novels, do housework, and socialise in small or large groups.
Some who had been unable to work for years, were able to return to work.
The researchers noted that limitations of the study, such as a restricted number of remedies and potencies, and the short duration of treatment, may have resulted in an underestimation of the improvements possible.
With brain injury being such a disabling problem it appears wise to incorporate homeopathy into the treatment plans of those affected.
To date, no formal study has been conducted with the seriously brain-injured but clinical experience of the past two centuries indicates it is just as helpful there.
