Summaries of Key Studies Supporting Homeopathy

Human Clinical Trial Meta Analyses

1. Kleijan et al in the BMJ report that of the 105 clincal trials that met the reviewer's quality criteria, 81 of those trials showed a positive effect for Homeopathy (BMJ 1991:302:316-323)

2. Coucherat, et al state, "There is some evidence that Homeopathic treatments are more effective than placebo". 16 studies were evaluated. (European journal of Clinical Pharmocol, 2000, 56,27)

3. Mathie states, "The weight of evidence currently favors a positive treatment effect in eight areas: childhod diarrhoea, fibrositis, hayfever, influenza, pain, side effects of radio or chemotherapy, sprains and upper respiratory tract infections." 93 studies were evaluated. (Homeopathy 2003 92:84-91)

4. Barnes J, et al on post operative ileus, "There is evidence that Homeopathic treatment can reduce the duration of ileus after abdominal or gynaecological surgery". 6 studies were evaluated. (Biomedical Therapy, vol XV11, 2 1999, 65-70)

5. From Bornhoft, et al, "Effectiveness of Homeopathy can be supported by clinical evidence". 74 studies were evaluated. (Forsch Komplementarmed. 2006;13 Sippl 2:19-29)

6. Linde, et al, "Amongst the high quality studies, positive effects were reported 50% more often than negative effects". 105 studies were evaluted. (Human and Experimental Toxicology, 1994, vol. 13, No 7, 481-492).

Cohort Studies

1. Spence et al., in a 2007 study, found that 6544 consecutive UK National health Service patients treated with Homeopathy 70.7% reported positive health changes, with 50.7% recording their improvement as better or much better. (Complement Ther Med 2007 Jun:15(2):128-38)

2. In a 2008 study, Marian et al. concluded that "Overall patient satisfaction was significantly higher in Homeopathic than conventional care. Homeopathic treatments were perceived as low risk therpay with 2 to 3 times fewer side effects than cinventional care". 3126 patients were involved in this study. (BMC Complement Atern Med. 2008 Sep 18;8:52)

3. Van Wassenhoven et al., in a 2004 study involving 782 patients, concluded that "patients were very satisfied with their Homeopathic treatment, both they and their physiscians recorded significant improvement. Costs of Homeopathic treatment were significantly lower then conventional treatment, and many previously prescribed drugs were discontinued." (Homeopathy. 2004 Jan;93 (1):3-11)

Human Clinical Trials (Individual)

There is an extensive list of high-quality human RCTs supporting homeopathy's efficacy, both clinically and in the lab. These can be found by searching Medline, or on websites such as the Glasgow Homeopathic Hospital, Homeopathic Doctor, and Nutrition Matters.

For example, check out the following study: The Evidence for Homeopathy, Glasgow Homeopathic Hospital, September 2006.

Additionally, consider the placebo-controlled RCT looking carried out by David Reilly and published in The Lancet in 1994. Homeopathy proved superior to placebo.

This trial was so well-designed and conducted that The Lancet could not help but acknowledge it, commenting "either there is something amiss with the clinical trial as conventionaly conducted, or the effects of Homeopathic immunotherapy differ from those of placebo.....carefully done work of this sort should not be denied the attention of Lancet readers." (Lancet vol 344 December 10, 1994, p1585)

Beyond such academia, it is the simple fact that Homeopathy has been in constant use as a system of medicine for over 200 years and is in fact, (according to Contemporary Paediatrics, May 2003, 20,97) the world's second most popular form of healthcare with millions of satisfied users.

 

Naturopathic Medicine & Homeopathy Testimonials

The trembling and shaking is not noticeable anymore, and the muscle weakness and tension is getting less.
It seems like it's gotten better every time I've seen you, so I have hope for it soon going away absolutely!
My eye sight is also stronger through the treatment, and I am not so forgetful or confused now.

Elle C., Vancouver (Kerrisdale), BC

A couple of days after Dr Somodys homeopathic remedy and Bowen treatment, my breast got hot and some smelly, pussy discharge came out of the nipple!

I felt a lot more energized after this.

And then, after a few weeks, the doctors told me that the tumor had started to shrink!

Even my skin and gut are doing better.

I'm feeling optimistic about the future for the first time in months!

Ilona, Surrey (Newton / Fleetwood), BC

I felt 90% better after the first Bowen therapy session with Dr. Andy.

I can't even remember now the last time I had arthritic symptoms, joint or muscle pains.

Donald W, Surrey (South Surrey / White Rock), BC

I had this bump on my nose that I got burnt off multiple times with dry ice.

But it kept coming back, and eventually became worse and worse, until it was diagnosed as skin cancer.

Then I saw Andy, and his homeopathic remedy and neuroemotional technique helped kill the cancer and let my skin heal.

I don't get the bump any more, and you can barely tell that I ever had anything there!

B.K., Surrey (Cloverdale / South Surrey), BC

My voice was always raspy, and it would hurt to talk too much.

And I'd be coughing up phlegm and mucus even when I was healthy, especially after getting up in the morning.

Then when it'd get damp, I wouldn't be able to even breathe very well.

Andy's homeopathy remedy and bowen therapy made a huge difference overnight., and things have just kept improving every time I've seen him.

Alex, West Vancouver (Bowen Island), BC

The cancer had made me so frustrated and slowed down.

Time was my enemy, and I had to get better.

Andy's homeopathic remedy, biofeedback and neuroemotional treatments helped my mood and bowels almost immediately.

The cancer didn't go away overnight, but began to recede gradually.

Even during this time though I could tell I was getting better.

I had more energy and motivation than I had had in 20 years.

So when the doctors told me the cancer had gone into partial remission, I wasn't surprised.

Colin Wood, Delta (Ladner), BC

I had lots of problems all over my body when I first was referred to you.

I peed myself when I laughed or jumped up and down, and felt like I constantly had to go to the bathroom, but nothing would come out.

My heart also felt like it was jumping out of my chest sometimes.

Homeopathy never had worked for me in the past, but your remedy really did the trick.

And the neuroemotional work helped me to recognize and let go of a bunch of old traumas I had been holding on to.

The exercises you gave me for the pelvic floor strengthening also seemed to help me get control of my bladder.

Lisa A., Langley (Aldergrove), BC

Thank you so much for everything!

All my eye pain and headache is gone. The most I feel is just a little tingling now and then.

Otherwise everything else is going phenomenally well in life! It just couldn’t be any better.

I also got a new job. I sent out my resume, and it was the one type of job I wanted, and it was just a good fit.

I just had a look on job searching and I just let it happen.

I’m so happy right now!

I also got accepted to a new school and I’ve already started reading the textbooks.

I’m surprised how much I’m actually absorbing. I’ve never been good at that but now I’m actually absorbing it.

And I don’t seem to have so much a problem with nuts these days.

Since the last time I've seen you, I didn't notice my stomach at all. 

Even with other people in my life I’m just been letting them know how I feel about things, instead of letting that hold me back.

It’s just phenomenal.

I look forward to my appointments with you every month!

Jenny C., Vancouver, BC

I want to take the time to say how much I appreciate your excellent work in improving my health.

There was something unsettled in my gastrointestinal system that my family doctor wasn't able to fix and I was suffering daily.

In less then 6 months of being in your care I was feeling better than ever.

Not only were my specific problems taken care of but I've also noticed that my overall physical and mental health are greatly improved.

I recommend your services to any of my friends, family or co-workers who have health complaints.

Colin Aspinall, Port Coquitlam, BC

My meniere’s disease, including the vertigo and nausea, went away after I was treated by Dr. Andy’s remedy, and the recurrences have become increasingly less frequent and intense. I've been doing so well that I haven't needed treatment for months!

F.L., Richmond, BC
