Brain injury - Homeopathy Helps


Brain Injury – Homeopathy Helps

A study conducted in 2009 showed that homeopathy stimulated significant improvement in people with traumatic brain injury even though that injury may have happened many years previously.

The treatment group, classified as having mild traumatic brain injury, were entered into the study through their rehabilitationists and neurologists. In spite of their brain injury having happened many years previously, they still struggled with persistent problems such as short attention span; slowed thinking; reduced ability to learn and process information; headaches; fatigue; sleep disturbances; impatience; frustration; confusion; poor judgment; depression; mood swings; blurred vision, vomiting, and so on.

The treatment group reported significant improvements, especially in being able to: understand technical or work-related information, follow instructions, read newspapers or novels, do housework, and socialise in small and large groups. Some, who had been unable to work for years, were able to return to work.

The researchers noted that limitations in the study such as remedies and potencies able to be used and the short duration of treatment may have resulted in an underestimation of the actual benefits of treatment.
