HOME >>ABOUT HOMEOPATHY
Homeopathic research has traditionally involved testing remedies on healthy individuals in order to document the symptoms that arise, which may lead to an understanding of the action of each remedy. This process is known as "proving" and it is an essential component of homeopathy and the law of Similars. The information gathered through provings is collected in materia medicas and collated in repertories, both of which form the backbone of homeopathic practice.
In the last few decades, there have been many attempts to demonstrate the effects of homeopathy through clinical trials and studies. Results are often challenged by deniers of homeopathy who insist that they did not maintain a strict scientific method regimen -- while ignoring the facts that a) the scientific method is based on comparing the results of one action against another under the same conditions (contrary to the individualized approach of homeopathy), and b) most prescription drugs have not met those same standards. Homeopathy is based on the selection of a specific remedy for each individual and therefore it does not lend itself to the same clinical methodology as pharmaceutical drugs.
However, there is no doubt that the combined body of research involving homeopathy provides strong evidence of its effectiveness in a wide range of circumstances. Read more about clinical evidence supporting homeopathy HERE.
