Homeopathy as a useful supplement in intensive care medicine.

(09/24/2010) Disputes between orthodox doctors and homeopathic doctors are often stylized in media debates to a form of "war of faith". The fact that ideological trenches play a very subordinate role in medical practice is shown by the successful cooperation between conventional and homeopathic doctors, which is based solely on the well-being of the patient. Critics and advocates of the healing method should therefore be surprised that homeopathy can have a place even in ultra-modern apparatus medicine in intensive care units. "In my view, intensive care medicine offers the ideal combination of conventional medicine and homeopathy," says Michael Frass in the autumn issue of the consumer magazine Homeopathy of the German Central Association of Homeopathic Doctors (DZVhÄ). Frass is a senior physician, university professor, intensive care physician and homeopath at the Clinic for Internal Medicine I at the Vienna General Hospital. Homeopathy is particularly successful as an additive measure for intensive care patients with severe sepsis. A study (double-blind, randomized and placebo-controlled) demonstrated the effectiveness of the method (Frass et al., Homeopathy 2005; 94: 75–80). After 180 days of treatment, there was a significant advantage for the homeopathy group: it had a survival rate of 76 percent compared to 50 percent in the placebo group. You can read a detailed interview with Michael Frass and a case description on the use of homeopathy in emergency medicine in the current issue of the journal Homeopathy.

Other topics in the autumn edition include: Self-Treatment: Homeopathic Medicines for Premenstrual Syndrome / Current: Political Voices to Discuss a “Homeopathy Prohibition” / Knowledge Section: What is Homeopathy Under the Rain of Similarity and Proven Indications? / Animal homeopathy: ear infections in dogs

The quarterly magazine is available free of charge in the member practices of the DZVhÄ and as a pharmacy edition in many pharmacies. You can also subscribe to the magazine, four editions a year cost just 5 euros including postage. The homeopathy foundation of the DZVhÄ is supported with a support subscription of 8 euros. If you would like to take out a subscription or order a sample book, write to [email protected] The magazines of the years 2002 to 2008 can be downloaded free of charge from the DZVhÄ website in the press section.
