This section aims to give you a clear account of the research evidence in homeopathy.

The evidence base

Between 1950 and 2009, 142 randomised controlled trials (RCTs) in homeopathy have been reported.                                       http://www.facultyofhomeopathy.org/research/rcts_in_homeopathy/index.html

This represents research in 74 different medical conditions. Of these 142 trials, 63 were positive, 11 negative and 68 non-conclusive.

A number of systematic reviews have evaluated the homeopathic research literature.                                                                                                         http://www.facultyofhomeopathy.org/research/systematic_reviews/index.html

Non-randomised, non-controlled clinical outcomes studies make a useful contribution to the evidence base.                                                                     http://www.facultyofhomeopathy.org/research/clinical_outcomes_studies.html

How does homeopathy work?

The Faculty's contribution
The Faculty is working in tandem with the British Homeopathic Association to develop a strong evidence base in homeopathy. Visit www.britishhomeopathic.org for information on the BHA's research strategy.
