Homeopathy is a form of holistic medicine used by over 200 million people worldwide to treat both acute and chronic conditions. Holistic forms of medicine support the whole person which includes psychological, emotional, spiritual and physical well-being. Homeopathy is based on the principle of ‘like cures like’ – in other words, a substance taken in small amounts will cure the same symptoms it causes if it was taken in large amounts.
Homeopathy doesn’t interfere with conventional medicine and should be seen as a complementary treatment, not as an alternative. In fact, homeopathic and conventional treatments can work very well alongside each other. This approach also gives patients more treatment choices.
Up to the end of 2013, there have been 188 peer-reviewed papers reporting randomised controlled trials (RCTs) in homeopathy. This represents research in 100 different medical conditions. Of those 188 RCT papers, 82 (44%) were positive, 10 (5%) negative and 89 (47%) non-conclusive:
