Dr. Brooke knows how well homeopathy works and how profoundly healing it is because she is able to see it at work everyday in her practice. However, she realizes that others may need a little more convincing. Below are some promising studies that have been published with respect to homeopathy in treating many chronic diseases. Because homeopathy simply stimulates the body to heal rather than treating a specific disease, the applications and implications can be broadened to suggest the effectiveness of homeopathy across the board. This is a compilation of many of the most well designed studies evaluating the efficacy of homeopathy as well as addressing the scientific plausibility of homeopathy.
