O, The Oprah Magazine is a monthly US magazine founded by Oprah Winfrey and the Hearst Corporation and has an average paid circulation of over 2.6 million copies and an article by Dr. Oz suggests that homeopathy is an effective treatment for migraine headaches.
In a recent article written by Dr. Oz, he recommends homeopathy as one out of a number of options for the treatment of migraine headaches. Generally, Dr. Oz supports homeopathy and has featured it on his television show. He joins thousands of medical doctors, researchers and scientists who enthusiastically endorse and support homeopathy. The scientists who support homeopathy include nobel prize winner Dr. Luc Montagnier, the discoverer of the AIDS virus, and Brian Josephson PhD, an emeritus professor at Cambridge University, England and also a Nobel prize winner.
Oprah Winfrey said “that since Dr. Oz’s first Oprah Show appearance in 2004, he’s been both a teacher and a healer for millions of viewers.” The Oprah show had over 8 million viewers per show and Dr. Oz has his own television show now- The Dr. Oz Show.
In the November 2009 issue of O (The Oprah Magazine), Dr. Oz analyzes four approaches to treating headaches: Neurology, Acupuncture, Nutrition and HOMEOPATHY! Dana Ullman is quoted in the section on homeopathy-Dana has been really active promoting homeopathy in the US media, Huffington Post Online as well. Under ‘MY RECOMMENDATION’ Dr. Oz says: “Acupuncture and homeopathy are worth considering as adjunct therapies once you are sure that the headache is not a sign of serious disorder.”
In a long term study of 1,153 homeopathy patients in France that was approved by the French National Data-Protection Commission and The French National Council of Physicians it was shown that homeopathy patients with chronic musculoskeletal pain had a 50 percent reduced use of conventional pain medication. Homeopathy patients with acute musculoskeletal pain had a 38 percent reduced use.
Homeopathy with its over 200 year history of efficacy and safety, has also traditionally had success with migraine pain and is one of the first medical modalities to recognize it as a medical problem. There are a number modern studies that show homeopathy is effective in the treatment of migraines as well as migraines in children. Dr. Mehmet Oz is a cardiac surgeon, a professor and Vice Chairman of Surgery at Columbia University in New York City, Director of the Cardiovascular Institute, and Founder and Director for the Complementary Medicine Program at New York Presbyterian Hospital.
In many European countries, homeopathy is practiced by medical doctors as well as professional homeopaths. In Germany alone there are over 7000 medical doctors liscenced as homeopaths. The Swiss government after an exhaustive investigation into homeopathy has adopted it under their national medical health care system. The Ontario government now has officially included Professional Homeopaths as a health discipline with their own government designation and registrar similar to Physician and Surgeons.
