Respondents with problems including problems related to eczema and the menopause were analysed in the survey of more than 6,500 patients. Children experienced the most positive results from homeopathy treatment, with 89 per cent of asthma sufferers under the age of 16 reporting improvements in their condition. Of the whole group, 75 per cent reported that they felt 'better' or 'much better' following treatment. Some have suggested that this is evidence that homeopathy should be introduced onto the NHS. But others are more sceptical: 'Patients were simply asked by their homeopathic doctor whether they felt better and it is well known that in this situation many patients will come up with the answer the doctor wants to hear,' said Matthias Egger, professor at the University of Berne, who worked on the study that was published in the Lancet.

Many individuals say that homeopathy has helped their symptoms. ...read more.
