Homeopathy dramatically improves the mental and physical well-being of cancer patients who are being treated with chemotherapy or radiotherapy, a major new study has discovered.
.Half the 410 cancer patients, who were prescribed individual remedies, reported "significant improvements" in their levels of fatigue and pain, and had better appetites, than those who weren't given the remedies. Improvements ranged from seven to 14 times in those taking homeopathy, say researchers from the Medical University of Vienna.
All the patients, who were being treated for stages 3 and 4 cancer, were interviewed every week while they were taking the remedies, and the improvements in the homeopathic group was very noticeable compared to the group who weren't taking homeopathy.
Improvements in overall health were 10 times greater in the homeopathic group over the three weeks the remedies were taken.
