Homeopathic treatment of allergies in a multicentre study

Since the prevalence of allergy is at a global all time high, and the acceptance of alternative treatments is also high, the Department of Applied Systems Research and Statistics, Johannes Kepler University in Linz, Austria, and the Department of Medicine 1, Medical University Vienna, Austria and WissHom, Kothen, Germany got together with the General and Homeopathic Medical Practice, in Enns, Austria, to assess the real-life efficacy of treatment of allergies with homeopathy.

Forty patients with allergic conjunctivitis, allergic rhinitis, bronchial asthma and neurodermatitis were assessed with questionnaires before and after homeopathic treatment. 21 patients were found to have had such a successful result that they were able to drop one medication, whilst all the rest were able to reduce the doses of their medication.

Although the symptoms of these patients were much improved with homeopathic treatment, the results of the study cannot be used to draw conclusions about the efficacy of homeopathy per se.
