» confermato: l'omeopatia classica Ť efficace nelle malattie croniche posted on 28-05-2006


Importante studio effettuato presso l'ospedale omeopatico di Bristol.

6.544 pazienti con patologie croniche  (eczema, asma, cefalea, depressione, artrite, intestino irritabile, sindrome da affaticamento cronico, rettocolite ulcerosa, sindrome post-menopausale ecc.)  sono stati trattati con l'omeopatia classica (in cui si usa un solo rimedio per volta, basandosi sull'insieme dei sintomi del paziente). Nel 70 % dei pazienti vi è stato un miglioramento dello stato di salute.

OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to assess health changes seen in routine homeopathic care for patients with a wide range of chronic conditions who were referred to a hospital outpatient department.

DESIGN: This was an observationalstudy of 6544 consecutive follow-up patients during a 6-year period.

SETTING: Hospital outpatient unit within an acute National Health Service (NHS) Teaching
Trust in the United Kingdom.

PARTICIPANTS: Every patient attending the hospital outpatient unit for a follow-up appointment over the study period was included, commencing with their first follow-up attendance.

MAIN OUTCOME MEASURE: Outcomes were based on scores on a 7-point Likert-type scale at the end of the consultation and were assessed as overall outcomes compared to the initial baseline assessments.

RESULTS: A total of 6544 consecutive follow-up patients were given outcome scores. Of the patients 70.7% (n = 4627) reported positive health changes, with 50.7% (n = 3318) recording their improvement as better (+2) or much better (+3).

CONCLUSIONS: Homeopathic intervention offered positive health changes to a substantial proportion of a large cohort of patients with a wide range of chronic diseases. Additional observational research, including studies using different designs, is necessary for further research development in homeopathy.
