Patient records from a six month audit of my practice a few years ago showed that 90% of people reported a beneficial response to homeopathy. The Society of Homeopaths conducted a similar survey nationally in 2006, of patients who complained of mental and emotional problems. 87% noted positive change from homeopathy*.
I’ve performed another audit recently, covering the 10 months from January to October 2016. I’ve included all ‘true’ follow-up appointments in that time – i.e. excepting people whose last visit was over 12 months prior to this recent appointment, and for different reasons, making the latest visit a new ‘first’ consultation rather than a follow-up where progress could be measured. (These are all people who have benefitted from homeopathy with me in the past.) Excluded too are October’s new patients whose first follow-up appointment is inevitably still pending.
The audit highlighted that 2016’s been a great year – this time 93% of people reported improvement at follow-up. I imagine repeating that figure consistently would be a lofty aim; a more typical success rate is probably around 90%.
But does it really work for serious problems? A case history
We’re all nervous of operations. But imagine for a moment being terrified for your life because of a previous allergic response to opiates for pain relief during surgery. This happened to one of my patients. Her reaction was so strong it landed her in intensive care.
Homeopathy cures a larger percentage of cases than any other method of treatment and is beyond doubt safer and more economical, and a most complete medical science.
The patient’s post-operative pain was managed with homeopathy alone.
She came round far more quickly and gently than in her many previous operations, without any nausea or sickness – unlike all the other patients in the ward. And she was walking on the injured leg within 2 hours of her surgery without conventional painkillers or medication of any kind – save for the continued use of homeopathy.
