Homeopathy for Chronic Patients

In a recent  study from Germany, 2,722 Swiss and German patients with chronic health problems received homeopathic treatment from doctors trained in homeopathy.

The participants were monitored over an eight year period.

The researchers stated that the data, “…consistently show substantial health improvements in patients under homeopathic treatment, which persisted through the whole observation period.”

Some of the more interesting observations from the study are:

  • One in 2 patients reported a 50% or more improvement in their health complaint
  • Three in ten patients stopped homeopathic treatment before the end of the 8-year period because of major improvements in their health.
  • Improvements were more pronounced in those with greater disease severity at the beginning of treatment.

Most patients said they would use homeopathy again and recommend it to friends.
