Homeopathy for malaria

800px-Anopheles_albimanus_mosquitoHomeopathic remedies have been used for 200 years for the treatment and prevention of malaria.

New research now supports the clinical efficacy of this practice.

The study in question was designed to evaluate the efficacy of Cinchona officinalis (Chin.) 30C and Chelidonium majus (Chel.) 30C in combination therapy against lethal murine malaria.

The authors say, “The combination had a significant preventive activity (p<0.0005), with 89.2% chemosuppression which was higher than the standard drug, pyrimethamine (83.8%). It also showed a moderate curative activity with complete clearance of parasite in 50% of surviving mice, and enhancing the MST of mice up to 26.8±2.8 days. These findings point to the significant antiplasmodial efficacy of the combination of these homeopathic drugs against Plasmodium berghei.”

They also refer to other studies on the homeopathic treatment and prevention of malaria and speak of its cost-effectiveness without the creation of drug resistance or “inflicting” side-effects
