A 7 yrs. old female child had come with complaints of swelling over face, cheeks and around lips since few months. Her complaints started without any specific cause. She was taking allopathic medication tablet cetrizine with temporary benefit.

By nature she was very irritable and would get angry easily. She would avoid food intake during anger and get aggravated if anybody tried to console her. She was obstinate, mischievious and not interested in studies. She was talkative at home and reserved outside. She had fear of father and getting scoldings from him. She would like to do make-ups on her own.

She looked shy and was biting nails during consultation. She generally cannot tolerate warm weather. Her thirst was more. She had marked aversion for eating vegetables. No specific complaints about urination and defecation.

She was given homoeopathic medicines Pulsatilla in infrequent doses as per the indications. She recovered well within few months. While on treatment she had few episodes of generalized skin itching which was managed well with homoeopathy medicines. She gradually stopped taking allopathic medicine tablet cetrizine and was completely mannaged well with homoeopathy medicines.

Note: Pulsatilla is used in this case as per the indications. In all cases Pulsatilla cannot be given. Every case has it’s unique presentation for prescription. Same medicine cannot be used for all the patients suffering from same disease condition. Homoeopathic medicines should be always taken under physician’s guidance only. Self-medications are not safe and prone to side effects.

PILOT STUDY ON THE HOMOEOPATHIC TREATMENT OF BINGE EATING IN MALES

CONTEXT:
Frequent binge eating is often a symptom of an underlying eating disorder, such as bulimia nervosa (BN) or binge eating disorder (BED). The role of homeopathy in the treatment of binge eating remains poorly explored.

OBJECTIVE:
The study intended to measure the efficacy of individualized homeopathic treatment for binge eating in adult males.

DESIGN:
This case study was a 9-wk pilot using an embedded, mixed-methods design. A 3-wk baseline period was followed by a 6-wk treatment period.

SETTING:
The setting was the Homeopathic Health Clinic at the University of Johannesburg in Johannesburg, South Africa.
 
PARTICIPANTS:
Through purposive sampling, the research team recruited 15 Caucasian, male participants, aged 18-45 y, who were exhibiting binge eating.

INTERVENTION:
Individualized homeopathic remedies were prescribed to each participant.

PRIMARY OUTCOME MEASURES:
Participants were assessed by means of (1) a self-assessment calendar (SAC), recording the frequency and intensity of binging; (2) the Binge Eating Scale (BES), a psychometric evaluation of severity; and (3) case analysis evaluating changes with time.

RESULTS:
Ten participants completed the study. The study found a statistically significant improvement with regard to the BES (P = .003) and the SAC (P = .006), with a large effect size, indicating that a decrease occurred in the severity and frequency of binging behavior during the study period.

CONCLUSIONS:
This small study showed the potential benefits of individualized homeopathic treatment of binge eating in males, decreasing both the frequency and severity of binging episodes. Follow-up studies are recommended to explore this treatment modality as a complementary therapeutic option in eating disorders characterized by binge eating.

INDIVIDUALISED HOMOEOPATHY AFTER CANCER TREATMENT

BACKGROUND:
Increasingly, patients are surviving cancer and presenting with new health challenges, and there is greater demand for self-help and complementary and alternative medicine (CAM).

AIM:
To explore the benefits of a three-month course of individualised homeopathy (IH) for survivors of cancer.

DESIGN:
Small, community-based study.

SETTING:
Hampshire, UK.

METHOD:
Fifteen survivors of any type of cancer were recruited by a walk-in cancer support centre. Conventional treatment had to have taken place within the last three years. Patients scored their total, physical and emotional wellbeing using the Functional Assessment of Chronic Illness Therapy for Cancer (FACIT-G) before and after receiving four IH sessions.

RESULTS:
Eleven women had statistically positive results for emotional, physical and total wellbeing based on FACIT-G scores.

CONCLUSION:
Findings support previous research, suggesting CAM or individualised homeopathy could be beneficial for survivors of cancer.

CHARACTERISTICS OF HOMOEOPATHY USERS AMONG INTERNAL MEDICINE PATIENTS IN GERMANY

BACKGROUND:
Homeopathy use continues to grow in many European countries, and some studies have examined the characteristics of patients using homeopathy within the general population. The aim of this study was to identify predictors for homeopathy use among internal medicine patients.

PATIENTS AND METHODS:
A cross-sectional analysis was conducted among all patients being referred to the Department of Internal and Integrative Medicine at Essen, Germany, over a 3-year period. The analysis examined whether patients had used homeopathy for their primary medical complaint before, the perceived benefit, and the perceived harm of homeopathy use. Odds ratios with 95% confidence intervals were calculated using multiple logistic regression analysis.

RESULTS:
Of 2,045 respondents, 715 (35.0%) reported having used homeopathy for their primary medical complaint (diagnosis according to the International Statistical Classification of Diseases and Related Health Problems), with 359 (50.2%) reporting perceived benefits and 15 (2.1%) reporting harm. Homeopathy use was positively associated with female gender, high school level education, suffering from fibromyalgia or subthreshold depression, and being fast food abstinent, while patients with osteoarthritis, spinal or other pain, smokers, and patients with a high external-social health locus of control were less likely to use homeopathy.

CONCLUSION:
Personal characteristics and health status may impact on the use and the perceived helpfulness of homeopathy.

IS THERE A ROLE FOR HOMOEOPATHY IN BREAST CANCER SURGERY? A first randomized clinical trial on treatment with Arnica montana to reduce post-operative seroma and bleeding in patients undergoing total mastectomy.

AIM:
This study aimed to evaluate the benefits of Arnica montana on post-operative blood loss and seroma production in women undergoing unilateral total mastectomy by administering Arnica Montana 1000 Korsakovian dilution (1000 K).

MATERIALS AND METHODS:
From 2012 to 2014, 53 women were randomly assigned to A. montana or placebo and were followed up for 5 days. The main end point was the reduction in blood and serum volumes collected in drainages. Secondary end points were duration of drainage, a self-evaluation of pain, and the presence of bruising or hematomas.

RESULTS:
The per-protocol analysis revealed a lower mean volume of blood and serum collected in drainages with A. montana (-94.40 ml; 95% confidence interval [CI]: 22.48-211.28; P = 0.11). A regression model including treatment, volume collected in the drainage on the day of surgery, and patient weight showed a statistically significant difference in favor of A. montana (-106.28 ml; 95% CI: 9.45-203.11; P = 0.03). Volumes collected on the day of surgery and the following days were significantly lower with A. montana at days 2 (P = 0.033) and 3 (P = 0.0223). Secondary end points have not revealed significant differences.

CONCLUSIONS:
A. montana 1000 K could reduce post-operative blood and seroma collection in women undergoing unilateral total mastectomy. Larger studies are needed with different dilutions of A. montana to further validate these data.

HOMOEOPATHY IN THE AGE OF ANTIMICROBIAL RESISTANCE: IS IT A VIABLE TREATMENT FOR UPPER RESPIRATORY TRACT INFECTIONS?

BACKGROUND:
Acute upper respiratory tract infections (URTIs) and their complications are the most frequent cause of antibiotic prescribing in primary care. With multi-resistant organisms proliferating, appropriate alternative treatments to these conditions are urgently required. Homeopathy presents one solution; however, there are many methods of homeopathic prescribing. This review of the literature considers firstly whether homeopathy offers a viable alternative therapeutic solution for acute URTIs and their complications, and secondly how such homeopathic intervention might take place.

METHOD:
Critical review of post 1994 clinical studies featuring homeopathic treatment of acute URTIs and their complications. Study design, treatment intervention, cohort group, measurement and outcome were considered. Discussion focused on the extent to which homeopathy is used to treat URTIs, rate of improvement and tolerability of the treatment, complications of URTIs, prophylactic and long-term effects, and the use of combination versus single homeopathic remedies.

RESULTS:
Multiple peer-reviewed studies were found in which homeopathy had been used to treat URTIs and associated symptoms (cough, pharyngitis, tonsillitis, otitis media, acute sinusitis, etc.). Nine randomised controlled trials (RCTs) and 8 observational/cohort studies were analysed, 7 of which were paediatric studies. Seven RCTs used combination remedies with multiple constituents. Results for homeopathy treatment were positive overall, with faster resolution, reduced use of antibiotics and possible prophylactic and longer-term benefits.

CONCLUSIONS:
Variations in size, location, cohort and outcome measures make comparisons and generalisations concerning homeopathic clinical trials for URTIs problematic. Nevertheless, study findings suggest at least equivalence between homeopathy and conventional treatment for uncomplicated URTI cases, with fewer adverse events and potentially broader therapeutic outcomes. The use of non-individualised homeopathic compounds tailored for the paediatric population merits further investigation, including through cohort studies. In the light of antimicrobial resistance, homeopathy offers alternative strategies for minor infections and possible prevention of recurring URTIs.

WHAT IS HOMOEOPATHY

1. The trend of Homeopathic medicine is to individualise, to view and treat each patient as a person suffering under and from particular conditions.

2. Homeopathy tries to find out a general principle which will be made applicable to find out a specific remedy for each suffering individual-whatever may be the nosological term for his disease condition. e.g. Ten cases of tuberculosis may require ten different conditions bearing different nosological labels may require the same drug.

3. Homeopathy looks at the human organisms from the point of view of a biological whole, i.e, the organism though consisting of different parts is something more and greater and richer in its potentialities and functions than what are possessed of by each of its constituent parts and transcends them as well.

4. Homeopathy accepts the concepts of the biological whole; so it tries to treat the patient as a whole and not the disease-as is commonly talked about in homeopathic parlance.

5. Homeopathy tries to ascertain the action of drugs by providing them on healthy human beings who are able to communicate their subjective symptoms to the experiments.

6. Homeopathy has raised therapeutics to an independent status.

7. The Homeopathic approach to the study of diseases is from its clinical standpoint. It regards clinical symptoms totality as the nearest approach to the factual reality. Homeopathy regards clinical symptoms as those that render themselves perceptible to our senses as a resultant of forces-chemicophysical , vital, psychological-that are acting and reacting in and through the human organism in disease-conditions. The clinical symptoms are, thus, dynamic and co-extensive with diseases; whereas pathological changes are the static changes brought about as ultimate end results of the disease processes.

8. Homeopathy believes in the supreme efficacy of the homeopathic method of application of drugs as single remedies at a time and in minimum doses (Subject to some exceptional circumstances).

9. Homeopathy is a method focussing its effort upon the individual and the individualistic side of disease.

10. At the other, Homoeopathy copes with the individual’s particular health problem and aims chiefly at cure.

11. Homeopathy regards disease “per se” as a morbid vital process caused by dynamic influence of noxious agents of the vital principle as manifested through perceptible signs and symptoms, the totally of which constitutes for all practical purposes what goes by the name of disease. 

Homoeopathy regard all the structural changes in the body as end result of morbid vital process.

Homoeopathy regards that the source of life and energy is not material but spiritual. The basis, the foundation on which the life and energy stand and work, is physical.

Thus the scope of Homoeopathy lies in treating the actual morbid vital process and neither its causative agents nor its ultimates.

12.Homoeopathy accepts only those substances as therapeutic remedies whose positive actions have been ascertained by proving on healthy human beings.
