About 70-80% of patients taking homeopathic treatment for chronic disease report improvement.

About 70-80% of patients taking homeopathic treatment for chronic disease report improvement, and in at least one study they prefer it over conventional treatment, according to a collection of studies written up by our friends down under, Homeopathy Plus.

Possibly you are aware of the six-year Bristol Homeopathic Hospital study, which showed that out of 6,544 patients with chronic disease, sometimes of many years’ duration, 70.7 per cent reported positive health changes.

But there’s more.

A study on several alternative health modalities in Northern Ireland shows homeopathy narrowly edging out acupuncture with 79 per cent of patients reporting positive outcomes.

A study carried out at a health clinic in Dorset, England shows 84 per cent of patients reported improvement, and 81 per cent attribute their improvement to homeopathy.

A German study found that most parents with cancer-stricken kids who had them treated homeopathically rated their satisfaction rate as “very high” and would recommend homeopathy to other parents.

A large-scale Swiss study comparing patient satisfaction with homeopathic treatment to conventional medicine for chronic disease showed homeopathy scoring significantly better, with greater improvement and fewer side effects.

Finally, a 103-centre study in Switzerland and Germany followed 3,079 patients over eight years, and found:

* On average, disease severity decreased dramatically and improvements were sustained
* Three in ten patients stopped treatment because of major improvement
* Mental and physical quality of life scores increased substantially
* Biggest and fastest improvements happened for children and the patients who started out the most sick.

Conditions treated ran the gamut, covering both physical and emotional afflictions.

Those who wonder why homeopathy continues to grow in popularity worldwide despite a mechanism of action that defies common “wisdom” and a well-funded and highly-motivated opposition should take note of these studies.

Health Canada says it takes safety 'very seriously' in face of concerns about homeopathic remedy

The long list of so-called homeopathic nosodes approved by Health Canada include remedies made from the bacteria that causes chlamydia, the cerebral fluid of meningitis patients and cancer cells — to name just a few.

After B.C.'s senior physician questioned the federal approval of one of these remedies, a substance developed from the saliva of a rabid dog, Health Canada will only say that it takes the safety of health products "very seriously."

A Health Canada spokesperson said no one was available Tuesday for an interview about the remedy used by a Victoria naturopath to treat a small boy's behaviour problems, but offered a written statement instead.

"Homeopathic products ... are regulated as natural health products (NHPs) under the Natural Health Products Regulations," the statement reads.

"Health Canada takes the safety of health products on the Canadian market very seriously. Should a product not meet the requirements set out in the associated product monograph and guidance, Health Canada will take action." 

The homeopathic remedy, which is marketed as lyssinum, lyssin or hydrophobinum, is one of more than 8,500 homeopathic products regulated by the federal government.



Homeopathy is a holistic and effective system of healing that assists the natural tendency of the body to heal itself. In homeopathy tiny doses of natural substances are used to stimulate the body’s own healing powers.

Homeopathic principles have been used in medicine since ancient times but were rediscovered by the German physician Dr. Samuel Hahnemann in the late 1700’s.

Homeopathy was one of the most used healing systems in North America during the second half of the last century. In the early 1900’s, 15-20% of all doctors in North America were homeopaths. Due to powerful social and political forces, the homeopathic movement was overshadowed by the growing pharmaceutical industry. Today, we see an increase in the usage of homeopathic medicine as is provides a safe alternative to conventional medicine and has no harmful side effects.

Homeopathy works on a level of molecular energy sometimes referred to as the “vital force”, chi or prana. Disease can be seen as an imbalance in the energy of our body and the homeopathic remedy acts as a stimulant to this energy which can then overcome disease and re-establish balance in the system. The basic tenet is to accept that a sick individual is more than a broken watch.

A truly holistic approach, homeopathy is concerned with the treatment of the whole person or animal, as an individual, rather than the treatment of the specific disease. For this reason, homeopathy can be helpful in any illness – whether its origin is physical, mental or emotional. All aspects of the individual are taken into account as the homeopathic veterinarian examines the totality of the individual’s symptoms and how he/she responds to stress. Of interest to the homeopath will be the individual’s reaction to the external world, to different kinds of emotional and physical stress, to temperature changes, etc. A certain amount of observation will be required by the human caretaker in order to provide the characteristic symptoms which will help in selecting the most effective homeopathic medicine. The most interesting symptoms to the homeopath are often the symptoms that your conventional doctor or veterinarian is least interested in.
