Homeopathic Medicine
: Main Image

Homeopathy is a non-toxic system of medicine used to treat illness and relieve discomfort of a wide variety of health conditions. It is practiced by licensed physicians and other qualified prescribers in many regions of the world, including Europe, Asia, the U.K., and the U.S. Information on the use of several hundred medicines has been collected for nearly two centuries by homeopathic practitioners, through research studies known as “provings,” as well as documented clinical cases and recent scientific trials. (Sources and documentation are found in “References.”)

Using Homeopathy with Professional Guidance

Homeopathic medicines can also be helpful in complex or even serious conditions—although self-prescribing is not appropriate in such cases. To correctly select the medicine and monitor the healing process, an experienced physician who is trained in homeopathy should be involved, for the following reasons:

  • Medical knowledge is needed to assess complex or serious conditions. Professional diagnostic tests may be necessary, as well.
  • Using a medicine that covers isolated symptoms superficially, but does not fit the person on deeper levels, may change or suppress the symptoms, yet not be deeply curative.
  • Even with a correctly-chosen medicine, a temporary aggravation of symptoms may occur as part of the healing process. Training and experience are required to distinguish a helpful aggravation from an intensification of symptoms that occurs because a medicine has not acted and the illness is progressing.
  • An inexperienced or impatient person might be tempted to repeat the medicine unnecessarily, or change to other medicines at times when waiting is appropriate.

If an illness or condition is chronic or deep-seated, it is best to consult an experienced homeopathic practitioner, for a “constitutional” medicine that fits the characteristic symptoms of the case and considers the person’s physical condition and individual nature in a more comprehensive way. At at typical first visit, a homeopath interviews a patient for at least an hour—to take a careful history and elicit information about many aspects of the person’s state of health—before choosing a medicine.

How Does Homeopathy Work?

Within the limitations of available scientific funding, interesting research is being undertaken to understand how and why such highly-diluted medicines have profound and curative effects. Formal studies published in current medical journals show that homeopathic medicines, when used correctly, are significantly more effective than placebo. Researchers theorize that, during potentization, an energetic change occurs in the medicine substance and its medium of dilution (usually water), enabling them to stimulate a person’s system to deal with stress and illness more efficiently. Homeopathic medicines do not have chemical action in the body, and thus work differently than nutrients or drugs—which has made it difficult for some researchers accustomed to assessing drugs to adequately consider them. Since the body is clearly affected by many forces that have no chemical content (electricity, radiation, thermal energy, etc.), it is reasonable to think that research designed to observe non-chemical effects will yield more useful information.

The following articles published in medical journals analyze results of over 100 clinical studies assessing effects of homeopathic medicines:

1. Linde K, Clausius N, Ramirez G, et al. Are the clinical effects of homeopathy placebo effects? A meta-analysis of placebo-controlled trials. Lancet 1997;250:834–43.

Analysis of 186 studies; concludes that positive results in subjects taking homeopathic medicines are 2.4 times more likely than with placebo.

2. Kleijnen J, Knipschild P, ter Riet G. Clinical trials of homeopathy. Br Med J 1991;302:316–23.

Review of 107 studies, 81 of which (77%) showed positive effects from homeopathic medicines; researchers concluded: “The evidence presented in this review would probably be sufficient for establishing homeopathy as a regular treatment for certain indications.”

3. Summary and review of other recent homeopathic research studies, and other references, may be found in the following books:
