You probably can relate to this situation I experienced early in my homeopathy journey. I knew the power of homeopathy based on the amazing cures that I had experienced in my own life and the lives of others, including my pets and livestock. Still, I sometimes found myself at a loss when a well-meaning friend or relative asserted that homeopathy has no scientific proof or research to back it up.
Quite the contrary is actually true. Homeopathy has a rich history of research behind it. In fact, its discoverer, Dr. Samuel Hahnemann, was a methodical scientist in his exploration of the principle that “like cures like.” Unfortunately for his family, in the very beginning, some of his research consisted of conducting “provings” on them and documenting their symptoms. I’m sure it made for lively dinner conversation. What symptoms am I going to develop this week?
Later, his students and colleagues clamored to be involved as well. When I was studying for my degree some 20 years ago under Jeremy Sherr, we, as students, were required to be involved in such provings. So I can personally attest to the scientific methodology required before publication.
Evidence of the efficacy of Homeopathy exists
Since Hahnemann, the research and provings continue. To spread awareness, I’ve added a section on my website entitled “Homeopathy Research.” It’s in my members-only section under Resources along with many handy, free downloads like my first aid chart. Membership is free.

To give you an idea of some of the research we’ve collected, here are a few excerpted studies. Did you know that even the National Department of Health has recommended that pediatricians and parents use homeopathic ear drops for children’s ear infections? Check it out here.
As you may know, this past January I trained in India with the renowned Drs. Banerji. They have extensive success in treating cancer patients with homeopathy, and this study demonstrated that this success may be due to homeopathy’s ability to slow tumor growth and improve cancer outcomes.
That’s the way with homeopathy. It doesn’t overwhelm our bodies with harsh drugs. Instead, it gently stimulates the body’s own healing abilities to bring about a better state of health in a proven and scientific method. I’m just grateful to have the research to prove it!
We’ve recently enlisted an intern to help us continue to find and add research, so stay tuned as our list of articles continues to grow. If you know of any studies we’ve missed, please send them along to us, but remember that in some cases we need permission to upload them.
Let's keep the ball rolling! Dr. Hahnemann’s family would likely approve.
