An interesting article written about the UK allowing homeopathics to be dispensed for psychiatric diseases. Our clinic thinks this is great because psychiatric drugs may be necessary in some cases, they have a lot of unwanted side effects such as suicidal ideation, violent aggression, nightmares and hallucinations just to name a few. This article mentions that they don't know of any studies showing homeopathy has an affect on psychiatric illnesses, http://www.geneticliteracyproject.org/2015/11/02/uk-forgoes-ban-on-homeopathy-in-psychiatric-medicine/
"Theresa May has announced that homeopathic medicine will receive a specific exemption from the government’s new law banning psychoactive substances, despite a shortage of scientific evidence that homeopathic medicine actually has any psychoactive effect."
In fact we found a number of studies published in the NICM journals on homeopathy for common psychological illnesses. Homeopathy is difficult to study because one does not get the same remedy in each case of illness, it is based on one's symptoms. That variable makes it hard to control for a scientific study. If ten patients get 10 different medicines at different potencies, it is tough to fall into the scientific guideline for constitutional treatments.
Thank goodness the UK hospitals have not banned homeopathy's use. It is safe and gentle, has no side effects and can help the patient on a deeper level than a suppressive drug. The best thing about homeopathy is that it can be used in conjunction with allopathic medications.
Here are a few studies we have come across:
