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 [1].

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...

Attitudes, Knowledge, Use, and Recommendation of Complementary and Alternative Medicine by Health Professionals in Western Mexico
Conclusions We observed a high rate of Mexican health professionals that had ever used CAM, and they had mainly used homeopathy, massage therapy, and herbal medicine. However, the recommendation rate of CAM by Mexican physicians was significantly lower than that in other countries, which is probably due to the lack of CAM training in most Mexican medical schools.

Case report of two siblings with multi- morbidities receiving homeopathic treatment for one year
Conclusion Treatment by a homeopath employing a variety of homeopathic methodologies and medicines over 1 year was associated with improvements in ADHD status, patient generated outcomes, parent reported pathology and reduction in conventional medication. No causal conclusions on treatment efficacy can be derived, nor the effects of homeopathic medicines separated out from the reduction in conventional medicines. More systematic research is warranted to tease out these effects, and should document treatment by homeopaths as experienced in clinical practice to explore therapeutic potential.

Should Nurse Practitioners Prescribe Complementary and Alternative Medicine?
Complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) is a large and fast-growing fact of life for nurse practitioners (NPs), particularly the vast majority of us who practice primary care. CAM is a range of therapeutic approaches categorized as follows: whole medical systems (eg, homeopathy, naturopathy, and ayurveda); mind-body techniques (eg, meditation, acupuncture, tai chi, and hypnotherapy); biologically based treatments (eg, herbal remedies and dietary supplements); manipulations (eg, chiropractic and massage); and energy medicine (eg, reiki and qi gong).

Complementary and Alternative Medicine Treatment Options for Otitis Media: A Systematic Review
Abstract: Otitis media (OM) has numerous presentations in children. Together with conventional medical therapies aimed to prevent and/or treat OM, a rising number of complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) treatment options can be offered. Since OM is common in children, parents may ask healthcare professionals about possible CAM therapies. Many physicians feel that their knowledge is limited regarding these therapies, and that they desire some information. Therefore, we conducted a literature review of CAM therapies for OM, taking into account that many of these treatments, their validity and efficacy and have not be...

Integrative management of pediatric tonsillopharyngitis: An international survey.
Abstract This survey investigated the management of pediatric tonsillopharyngitis, with a focus on natural remedies. 138 pediatricians, general practitioners and ear-nose-throat (ENT) specialists in 7 countries were surveyed by a dedicated questionnaire.
