Serious mistakes in meta-analysis of homeopathic research.
Authors: Vithoulkas G Abstract The article discussed the immanent problems of meta-analyses selecting a number of independent trials in homeopathy, within which, the purpose was to examine the effectiveness of homeopathic treatment. Our focus lied in clarifying that the complex effects of homeopathic treatment known from history and day-to-day practice have not been respected so far. The examination of most of the homeopathic trials showed that studies rarely account for homeopathic principles, in order to assess the effectiveness of the treatment. The main flaw was that trials reflect the point of view that the tr...

Use of non-conventional medicine two years after cancer diagnosis in France: evidence from the VICAN survey
ConclusionThis is the first study on NCM use 2 years after cancer diagnosis in France. In nearly half of the NCM users, cancer diagnosis was one of the main factors which incited patients to use NCM. Apart from the NCM users’ socioeconomic profile, the present results show that impaired health was a decisive factor: opting for unconventional approaches was therefore a pragmatic response to needs which conventional medicine fails to meet during the course of the disease.Implications for Cancer SurvivorsBetter information of patients and caregivers is needed to allow access to these therapies to a larger population of survivors.

'Globules at Home: The History of Homeopathic Self-medication
This paper deals with the history of self-treatment in homeopathy, focusing mainly on the territories of the German Empire between 1870 and 1918, by reconstructing some of the conditions under which this took place. Consideration is given to why homeopathy was such an appropriate option for home medicine; how lay people acquired the knowledge to use homeopathic remedies at home in cases of illness; and what remedies were available for practising homeopathy in private households. The paper shows that the use of this ‘alternative’ method was a common and important part of the wide field of home remedies.

Epidemiology of complementary and alternative medicine therapy use in allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplant survivorship patients in Australia
This study demonstrates that a large proportion (54.1%) of HSCT survivors is using one or more form of complementary and alternative medical (CAM) therapies. Given the potential benefits demonstrated by small studies of particular CAM therapies in this patient group, as well as clearly documented therapies with no benefit or even toxicity, this result shows there is a large unmet need for additional studies to ascertain efficacy and safety of CAM therapies in this growing population.

Homeopathic Treatment of Overweight and Obesity in Pregnant Women With Mental Disorders: A Double-blind, Controlled Clinical Trial.
Conclusions • Homeopathy does not appear to prevent excessive body mass gain in pregnant women who are overweight or obese and suspected of having a common mental disorder. Homeopathy did not change the APGAR score to modified clinical attention at delivery room. However, the evidence observed at APGAR 10 at minute 5 suggests that homeopathy had a modulating effect on the vitality of newborns, warranting further studies designed to investigate it.

Patient perceptions of clinical care in complementary medicine: A systematic review of the consultation experience
Complementary medicine (CM) comprises an extensive and varied body of health-care professions generally considered separate to conventional medicine . Commonly accessed CM professions include naturopathy, herbal medicine, acupuncture, homeopathy, chiropractic and massage [2,3]. CM use amongst the general population has been identified as both prevalent and consistently increasing on an international level [4,5], including patients with chronic health conditions [6,7]. It has also been asserted that the integration of CM consultations alongside the provision of conventional primary health-care services can enhance the qu...

Complementary and alternative medicines occupational closure in Portuguese healthcare: Contradictions and challenges
This article analyses strategies of closure recently enacted by complementary and alternative medicine practitioners in order to achieve occupational control over work domains in healthcare, taking Portugal as an example. A combination of the neo-Weberian occupational closure theory of the professions and Abbott’s jurisdictional vacancy theory is proposed as the framework for analysis. Acupuncture and homeopathy will be presented as case studies. Data are derived from in-depth interviews with 10 traditional acupuncturists and 10 traditional homeopaths. Data analysis suggests that (1) professionalisation, (2) alignmen...

The immunomodulatory effects of a commercial antiviral homeopathic compound in C57BL/6 mice, pre and post vaccine challenge.
Abstract Homeopathic remedies have been selectively employed in human medicine since Hahneman introduced the concept in 1828. While the use of homeopathy is regionally popular in both human and veterinary medicine, there is still a significant lack of scientific evidence supporting its efficacy. This is likely due to an absence of studies evaluating the mechanism of action of these compounds. Engystol® an FDA-approved antiviral agent, is a popular homeopathic commercial product. In select in vivo and in vitro observational studies, the drug showed a measureable innate immune therapeutic efficacy. The focus of the...

Polish physicians' attitudes to complementary and alternative medicine.
CONCLUSION: Given the views held by doctors that the training and activities of CAM therapists should be regulated by the Chamber of Physicians and Dentists, the integration of CAM into medical curriculum and the Polish public healthcare does not yet seem feasible. There is a need for a public debate about CAM and a legal framework regulating practice of CAM in Poland. PMID: 27515876 [PubMed - in process]

Homeopathy and cancer
Representatives of the British Association of Homeopathic Veterinary Surgeons comment: Older readers will recall a profession proud to be independent, eclectic, able to explore, expand and develop treatment options available to patients committed to its care. Individuals' experience was valued; indeed much of what we do today is based on the collective experience of the past. Members were fulfilled and graduates mentored into confident colleagues. Oft' forgotten in the EBM debate is that the collective of anecdote is evidence. Then accountants, managers, targets, marketing and disciplinaries for failure to conform appeared...
