Documentation of Prescriptions and Clinical Outcomes in a Homeopathic Hospital Setting in West Bengal, India
Documentation of prescriptions and clinical outcomes in routine homeopathic practice is a prerequisite for conducting targeted research in homeopathy. Six homeopathic physicians participated in methodical data collection over a 3-month period in 6 outpatient departments of Mahesh Bhattacharyya Homeopathic Medical College and Hospital, West Bengal, India. A specifically designed Microsoft Excel spreadsheet enabled recording of consecutive appointments—date, patient identity, medical condition/complaint, whether chronic/acute, new/follow-up case, patient-assessed outcome (7-point Likert-type scale: –3 to +3), pre...

Instinct to Work: A Case of Formica Rufa
Homoeopathic Links 2015; 28: 092-094DOI: 10.1055/s-0035-1549400Typically when we work with kingdoms in homeopathy, we consider animal, plant and mineral separately…first identifying the themes in the case, then matching those to the broad themes of the three kingdoms and then the more specific themes of periodic table rows, animal species and plant sensation. This case reflects an expansion of this kingdom approach based on work by Dr. Shachindra and Dr. Bhawisha Joshi. The client is a woman with an obsessive need to work, even as she ages, develops physical structural problems and exhausts herself. For many years, remed...

Abstract P2-12-03: The financial costs of metastatic breast cancer and the decisions patients make to cope with costs: Findings from the Cancer Experience Registry
Conclusion: MBC places a significant financial burden on patients, which can result in patients taking measures that can significantly impact their quality of life. Future implications for research include the development and evaluation of interventions designed to enhance doctor-patient communication and support (e.g., financial counseling) to ensure that the financial cost of MBC does not negatively impact the patient’s quality of life, course of cancer care, and health outcomes.

Utilization of complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) among children from a German birth cohort (GINIplus): patterns, costs, and trends of use
Conclusion: CAM use among 15-year-old children in the GINIplus cohort is popular, but decreased noticeably compared with children from the same cohort at the age of 10 years. This is possibly mainly because German health legislation normally covers CAM for children younger than 12 years only.

Health education or a shared therapeutic project? Health care goes beyond the pedagogical dimension
This study discusses the existential territory of “being a health professional” as understood from a concept of education as a significant benchmark, and of a certain interventionist mission as a transcendent value. A progressive waning of the importance of health education was observed during the workshops, sometimes even disappearing from the discussions, as the caregiving therapeutic projects took shape. The conclusion reached is that this waning involved a process of moving towards a pact with the health system user, eventually considered to be a valid interlocutor; and that health care transcends any strictly pedagogical dimension.

Vaccine Hesitancy: Clarifying a Theoretical Framework for an Ambiguous Notion
Conclusion In this paper, we have discussed some of the ambiguities and contradictions of the notion of vaccine hesitancy. We have argued that it is currently more a catchall category than a real concept. This lack of consistence is likely to hamper both research and interventions. Therefore, as a supplement to the previous work carried out by the SAGE working group, we propose grounding the notion of vaccine hesitancy in an explicit theoretical framework that takes some major structural features of contemporary societies into account. We consider VH to be a kind of decision-making process that depends on people’s level ...

How to Handle Worsening of Condition during Treatment - Risk Assessment in Homeopathic Practice
Even though homeopathy is regarded as a harmless intervention, homeopathic practice may not be entirely risk-free. Risk in homeopathy can be divided into direct and indirect risk. Direct risk refers to traditional adverse effects of an intervention; indirect risk is related to adverse effects in a treatment context, e.g. the practitioner. Available data suggest that the risk profile of homeopathic remedies in ultra-molecular potencies is minor, but there is a potential for indirect risk related to homeopathic practice. The concept of ‘homeopathic aggravation' which is unique for homeopathy may impose a particular risk as...

What's new in atopic eczema? An analysis of systematic reviews published in 2012 and 2013. Part 2. Treatment and prevention
Summary This review provides a summary of key findings from 22 systematic reviews on atopic eczema (AE) published over the 2‐year period from January 2012 to 31 December 2013, focusing on prevention and treatment of AE. For an update of systematic reviews on the epidemiology, mechanisms of disease and methodological issues, see Part 1 of this update. Based on current systematic review evidence, the most promising intervention for the prevention of AE is the use of probiotics (and possibly prebiotics) during the late stages of pregnancy and early life. Exposure to household pets, especially dogs, may also be protective, b...

Cross-sectional survey: Risk-averse French general practitioners are more favorable toward influenza vaccination.
CONCLUSION: Individual risk attitudes may influence GPs' practices regarding influenza vaccination, both for themselves and their patients. Our results suggest that risk-averse GPs may perceive the risks of influenza to outweigh the potential risks related to the vaccine. PMID: 25545596 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Performing 'pragmatic holism': Professionalisation and the holistic discourse of non-medically qualified acupuncturists and homeopaths in the United Kingdom
This article explores the strategies by which two groups of complementary and alternative medicine practitioners, namely, non-medically qualified acupuncturists and homeopaths in the United Kingdom, pragmatically accommodate holistic notions as a professional resource, a process of negotiation between maintaining their holistic premise, on the one hand, and the drive to professionalise and enhance their societal status, on the other. Based on in-depth interviews with non-medically qualified acupuncture and homeopathy practitioners and school principals, textual analysis of practitioners’ web sites and observation of ...

The concept of healing and integrative care
Abstract Western medicine needs to redress the imbalance between its proven ability to control disease processes and body function, and its limited ability to enable and support self-regulation and self-healing. In short, it needs to acknowledge its vocation and its responsibility to heal, to make whole. It needs to understand that this ‘whole-making’ not only transcends the task of managing disease but makes our efforts more effective, and improves both well-being and clinical outcome. This requires us to reflect more deliberately on what ‘natural’ healing really means; on how healthcare can inhibit o...

Randomised placebo-controlled trials of individualised homeopathic treatment: systematic review and meta-analysis
Conclusions Medicines prescribed in individualised homeopathy may have small, specific treatment effects. Findings are consistent with sub-group data available in a previous ‘global’ systematic review. The low or unclear overall quality of the evidence prompts caution in interpreting the findings. New high-quality RCT research is necessary to enable more decisive interpretation.
