Homeopathy

Homeopathy is effective according to Swiss federal report

This is just a short taste of a report recently published and translated into English. A longer version with references can be found here.

The 2006 HTA report on homeopathy was commissioned by the Federal Social Insurance Office (FSIO) within the context of an overall evaluation of Complementary and Alternative Medicines (CAMs). It was written by a team of German speaking academics and edited by G Bornhöft & F Matthiessen of Witten/Herdecke University in Germany.

Interestingly, the HTA methodology, unlike meta-analyses and systematic reports such as the Cochrane Collaboration, does not just ask the question of effectiveness of a particular intervention, it also addresses the questions of effectiveness of a therapy in everyday use (i.e. real world effectiveness), how it is used, its safety and its cost-effectiveness.

This report, amounting to 300-plus pages, exhaustively reviews the scientific literature in homeopathy. It summarises 22 reviews, 20 of which show positive results for homeopathy. Four of these showed strong evidence that homeopathy, as a system of medicine, is efficacious. It also finds strong supporting evidence for the homeopathic treatment of allergies and upper-respiratory tract infections.

“WORKED AS A THERAPIST MYSELF FOR MANY YEARS AND HAVE ALSO USED HOMEOPATHY FOR A LONG TIME BUT THE WAY THAT ELEANA USES THESE REMEDIES TOGETHER WITH HER OTHER SKILLS RAISES THESE TREATMENTS WAY ABOVE OTHERS THAT I HAVE EXPERIENCED. I CANNOT RECOMMEND HER HIGHLY ENOUGH. THANK YOU ELEANA.” ~ H JUMP, EPSOM
