Eczema: Homeopathy treats it as well as – if not better than – conventional medicine

Eczema on a handHomeopathy is just as good as conventional medicine for treating eczema. Classical homeopathy – where the patient receives just one, individual, nosode, or pill – even improved symptoms better than did the conventional therapy for up to a year afterwards.

The two therapies were tested on a group of 118 children with eczema, of which 54 had homeopathy and the rest conventional treatment. The condition, and the progress of the disease, was monitored by doctors.

After a year, both groups reported similar levels of improvement, although doctors noted that the symptoms were better in those given homeopathy.

Homeopathy is effective and safe, says authoritative government report

Health services and insurers are taking a closer look at homeopathy after an authoritative report concluded that it was effective, safe and inexpensive – all the things that cash-strapped governments are looking for right now.

The Health Technology Assessment (HTA) report – commissioned by the Swiss government – is one of the most influential reports for healthcare services around the world.

The HTA report, Homeopathy in Healthcare, has re-evaluated all the research, and included observational reports and case studies, to produce a glowing picture of homeopathy as effective, appropriate, safe and inexpensive. It concludes that “homeopathy is a valuable addition to healthcare.”

The HTA report is so highly valued because it has a pragmatic approach, looking at ‘real-life’ cases rather than relying entirely on academic studies that may, or may not, be properly conducted.

Bowen Therapy for Children

The UK's Bowen Therapy Professional Association has recently launched it’s “Bowen Therapy for Children” video outlining the benefits of Bowen treatment for children. Parents and carers have reported improvement in symptoms of many childhood ailments and problems after their children have received Bowen Therapy. They notice better posture, balance, co-ordination and the ability to cope better with the effects of trauma.

Benefits may include:

  • healthier children with better concentration,
  • improved sleeping patterns,
  • enhanced motor control & behaviour,

leading to quieter, happier children

Some childhood ailments may require regular Bowen treatments.

A child's Bowen treatment is very gentle. Many report finding it a pleasant and relaxing experience. All treatments are carried out through light clothing, whilst the parent / guardian remains in the room.
