Additive homeopathy in cancer patients: Retrospective survival data from a homeopathic outpatient unit at the Medical University of Vienna.
New study reinforces the evidence that homeopathic treatment improves survival time in patients diagnosed with cancer
20 August 2016
In a follow-up study to an earlier paper (a) Frass and colleagues further confirm the potential of homeopathy to improve survival time in patients diagnosed with cancer. A re-analysis of homeopathic patient data in comparison to control patient data from the same Outpatient´s Unit of the Medical University of Vienna shows that utilizing homeopathy gives a statistically significant (p<0.001) advantage over control patients regarding survival time. In conclusion, bearing in mind all limitations, the results of this retrospective study suggest that patients with advanced stages of cancer might benefit from additional homeopathic treatment until a survival time of up to 12 months after diagnosis.
