Research Trials for Homeopathy
Homeopathy in Europe
One in four EU citizens uses Homeopathy. The World Health Organisation recognises Homeopathy as one of the top complementary medicines worldwide. Studies show 70% of people reporting positive health changes after homeopathic treatment, even where conventional treatment has had little effect.

Respiratory Tract Complaints
500 consecutive patients were enrolled in 30 primary care practices. The authors concluded that Homeopathy appeared to be at least as effective as conventional treatment of patients with allergies, respiratory tract infections or ear complaints. Results showed a response of 82.6% for those provided with Homeopathy vs 67.3% in the group receiving conventional medicine.
