Study Shows How Patients Report Significant Improvement After Complimentary Health Treatments in Northern Ireland

Hospital Health Care, an online resource for senior management in hospitals across Europe, reports that an independent study involving  713 patients using complimentary therapies including homeopathy showed remarkable and  significant improvements in health.

A year-long pilot scheme in Northern Ireland has found that complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) can offer significant health improvements to NHS patients.

After receiving CAM treatments on referral from their GP, 81% of patients reported an improvement in their physical health and 79% in their mental health. The majority of patients, 84%, directly linked improvements in their health and wellbeing to the CAM treatment they had received and 94% said they would recommend it to others with a similar condition.

 

 

Independent analysis of the findings showed:

  • Patients receiving acupuncture treatment reported an average 33% improvement in their health and wellbeing
  • Patients receiving chiropractic and osteopathy treatment reported an average 38% improvement in their health and wellbeing
  • Patients receiving homeopathic treatment reported an average 54% improvement in their health and wellbeing

  1. The article wasn’t very helpful… no journal link. How do you expect your reader to verify your sources?

  2. The link to the article was and is right at the beginning of the article.

    It sounds like you had a bad day or simply have bad days for a long time.

  3. Some people are never satisfied and skeptical even if its right in front of their face.

  4. Great study- shows homeopathy is very worthwhile and I know this from my personal and family experience.
