The results of a six-year study at the Bristol Homeopathic Hospital in England showed that more that 70 percent of patients with severe illness showed very positive health changes after taking homeopathic remedies prescribed by their doctor. More than 6,500 patients participated in this study published in the Journal of Alternaitve and Complementary Meidcine (Spence, DS, et al, 2005; 11(5):793-798.)
Disease included eczema, asthma, migraine headaches, irritable bowel syndrome, menopause, arthritis, depression, and chronic fatigue syndrome. The largest improvements were seen in children. In fact, over 89 % of children under the age of 16 with asthma reported significant improvement with homeopathic treatments. Of this group, 75% felt either “better” or “much better”, as did 68% of eczema patients under 16 years of age.
Most of the patients in this study had tried conventional treatments first without any success. This study was reported in the BBC News, November 21, 2005 and by the British Homeopathic Association.
