The benefit/risk balance of subcutaneous injections as used in homeopathy and anthroposophic medicine: a narrative literature review
Conclusion The results justify a more positive attitude from regulatory authorities towards the use of this ROA and towards ampoules prescribing doctors. However, given the small number of good studies on this topic, more research on the favourable and unfavourable effects, the uncertainties of these effects and the conceptualization of the working mechanism of the subcutaneous ROA is indicated.

Phosphorus protects cardiac tissue by modifying the immune response in rats infected by Trypanosoma cruzi.
CONCLUSION: Treatment with Phosphorus 13cH promotes beneficial effects in T. cruzi infection in Wistar rats by modulating the secretion of IFN-γ and TNF-α with decreased inflammation in cardiac tissue. These results reinforce the importance of considering the use of homeopathy for establishing new therapeutic approaches in the management of patients with Chagas disease.

M1 homeopathic complex trigger effective responses against Leishmania (L) amazonensis in vivo and in vitro.
Abstract Leishmaniasis is a term referring to a range of clinical conditions caused by protozoan parasites of the genus Leishmania, Trypanosomatidae family, Kinetoplastida order that is transmitted by the bite of certain species of mosquitoes Phlebotominae subfamily. These parasites infect hosts wild and domestic mammals, considered as natural reservoirs and can also infect humans. Leishmania are obligate intramacrophage protozoa that have exclusively intracellular life style. This suggests that the amastigotes possess mechanisms to avoid killing by host cells. Cutaneous leishmaniasis, the most common form of the ...

A qualitative study exploring factors influencing clinical decision-making for influenza-like illness in Solapur city, Maharashtra, India.
Authors: Ahankari AS, Myles PR, Tsang S, Khan F, Atre S, Langley T, Kudale A, Bains M Abstract The co-existence of different types of medical systems (medical pluralism) is a typical feature of India's healthcare system. For conditions such as influenza-like illness (ILI), where non-specific disease signs/symptoms exist, clinical reasoning in the context of medical pluralism becomes crucial. Recognising this need, we undertook a qualitative study, which explored factors underpinning clinical decisions on diagnosis and management of ILI. The study involved semi-structured interviews including clinical vignettes with...

Evaluating the UK House of Commons Science and Technology Committee ’s position on the implausible effectiveness of homeopathic treatments
AbstractIn 2009, the UK House of Commons Science and Technology Committee (STC) conducted an ‘evidence check’ on homeopathy to evaluate evidence for its effectiveness. In common with the wider literature critical of homeopathy, the STC report seems to endorse many of the strong claims that are made about its implausibility. In contrast with the critical literature, however, the STC repo rt explicitly does not place any weight on implausibility in its evaluation. I use the contrasting positions of the STC and the wider critical literature to examine the ‘implausibility arguments’ against homeopathy and the place of ...

Homeopathic treatment for prolonged postoperative coma: a case report.
Authors: Vithoulkas G, Văcăraș V, Kavouras J, Buzoianu AD, Mărginean M, Văcăraș D, Cozma S Abstract Coma is the state of unrousable unconsciousness. There are variations in the degree of coma and the findings and signs found on the patient's clinical examination depend on the underlying cause of the disorder. The Glasgow Coma scale evaluates the best motor, verbal and eye answers of the patient. A patient is considered to be in a coma if his Glasgow Coma Scale is below 8 points. The progress that we have made throughout the years has also led to complications that can culminate in a major catastrophe like de...

This study compared traditional Indian medicine (TIM) and traditional Korean medicine (TKM) basing on data obtained from peer reviewed articles, respective government institutional reports and World Health Organization reports. Despite the fact that TIM and TKM have individual qualities that are unique from each other including different histories of origin, they share a lot in common. Apart from Homeopathy in TIM, both systems are hinged on similar principle of body constitutional-based concept and similar disease diagnosis methods of mainly auscultation, palpation, visual inspection, and interrogation.

Influence of Diet in Multiple Sclerosis: A Systematic Review
Nutrition is considered to be a possible factor in the pathogenesis of the neurological disease multiple sclerosis (MS). Nutrition intervention studies suggest that diet may be considered as a complementary treatment to control the progression of the disease; a systematic review of the literature on the influence of diet on MS was therefore conducted. The literature search was conducted by using Medlars Online International Literature (MEDLINE) via PubMed and Scopus. Forty-seven articles met the inclusion criteria. The reviewed articles assessed the relations between macro- and micronutrient intakes and MS incidence. The p...

Impact of conflicts of interest on guideline recommendations : Empirical study within the second update of the German interdisciplinary S3 guidelines on fibromyalgia syndrome.
CONCLUSION: Academic COI were more frequent than financial COI in the second update of the German interdisciplinary guidelines group on fibromyalgia syndrome. The impact of COI on guideline recommendations was low. The inclusion of patients and of all relevant healthcare professionals into a guidelines group is a protective factor against the influence of COI on guideline recommendations.

Double-blinded randomised placebo-controlled clinical trial of individualised homeopathic treatment of hyperthyroid cats
Feline hyperthyroidism is a common endocrine disorder in older cats for which homeopathic treatment has been advocated. A double-blinded, placebo-controlled randomised trial was performed to look for evidence of efficacy for the use of individualised homeopathy in the treatment of this disease. Using a case definition of a concentration of the thyroid hormone T4 >66 nmol/l, cats were randomised into two treatment arms. Either a placebo or a homeopathic treatment was given to each cat blindly. After 21 days, the T4 levels, weight (Wt) and heart rate (HR) were compared with pretreatment values. There were no sta...

Therapeutic use of the rebound effect of modern drugs: "New homeopathic medicines"
Summary The homeopathic treatment is based on the principle of therapeutic similitude, employing medicines that cause certain disorders to treat similar manifestations, stimulating a reaction of the organism against its own ailments. The occurrence of this secondary reaction of the organism, opposite in nature to the primary action of the medicines, is evidenced in the study of the rebound (paradoxical) effect of several classes of modern drugs. In this work, in addition to substantiate the principle of similitude before the experimental and clinical pharmacology, we suggest a proposal to employ hundreds of conventional dr...

Randomised, double-blind, placebo-controlled trials of non-individualised homeopathic treatment: systematic review and meta-analysis
ConclusionsThe quality of the body of evidence is low. A meta-analysis of all extractable data leads to rejection of our null hypothesis, but analysis of a small sub-group of reliable evidence does not support that rejection. Reliable evidence is lacking in condition-specific meta-analyses, precluding relevant conclusions. Better designed and more rigorous RCTs are needed in order to develop an evidence base that can decisively provide reliable effect estimates of non-individualised homeopathic treatment.

The Terrain Is Everything
Homœopathic Links 2017; 30: 024-027 DOI: 10.1055/s-0037-1598101Considering infections, conventional medicine pays more attention to the agent then to the human organism or terrain (Le Terrain). Some scientists such as Béchamp tried to stress out that the terrain is much more important than the bug and even Pasteur in the last days of his life recognized that. Claude Bernard stated that homeostasis was fundamental to keep people from getting infections. Antibiotics are indeed important to treat severe bacterial infections or specially infections on immune-suppressed patients. However, if we disregard the terrain, people o...

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.
