In dieser neuen Studie werden vier von verschiedenen Regierungen finanzierte Übersichtsarbeiten zur Homöopathieforschung kritisch analysiert. Ernsthafte Bedenken hinsichtlich der wissenschaftlichen Genauigkeit bestehen bei den Berichten aus Australien, England und einem von zweien aus der Schweiz. Die verbleibende Schweizer Arbeit war die umfassendste und ergab die positivsten Ergebnisse für die Homöopathie.
Homeopathic medicine is a controversial system of medicine that has been used worldwide for over 200 years. Recently, several governments, in part, owing to government-funded reviews of research on homeopathic medicine, have stopped reimbursements for homeopathic medicines and have discouraged their use by medical professionals. This review critically evaluates four government-funded reviews of clinical research on homeopathic medicine. An analysis of government-sponsored reviews of clinical research on homeopathic medicine was conducted, including two studies from Switzerland, one from England, and one from Australia. Three of the four government-funded reviews were critical of homeopathy, claiming that there was no reliable evidence that homeopathic medicines were effective. Three of these reviews had significant flaws, with potential ethical concerns raised in one of the reviews. The most comprehensive review of homeopathic research, including analysis of clinical and basic science concerns, found the most positive results for homeopathy.
