Research

Research into Homeopathic Medicine is not with out its controversy. Homeopathy is often lazily dismissed as lacking in serious research but there is actually 200 years of considerable evidence. Without doubt some is unconvincing, many trials are underpowered, many are biased and poorly constructed but some is stunning. It is often forgotten that it is in homeopathy that the first clinical trial was ever conducted, and also homeopathy where the first use of placebo was implemented. 

There are trials testing homeopathy and hay-fever, influenza, menopause, rheumatoid arthritis. There are trials examining the cost effectiveness and cost benefit of homeopathy in different conditions. There are studies examining homeopathy and patient satisfaction. There are trials looking at the degree to which the medicine or the consultation is the  influencing factor. In addition, there are trials involving millions of people examining the use of homeopathy to protect populations in epidemic diseases. 

Not all are positive. But not all are negative either. Many of the results cannot be explained by what we think we know about conventional physics, chemistry or medical science.
