A thorough and comprehensive guide to homeopathic internet resources and references throughout the world is maintained at HomeopathyHome. At this site you’ll find links to homeopathic pharmacies, booksellers, societies and organisations, practitioners, schools and colleges, discussion groups and forums, journals, educational sites, homeopathic software manufacturers and retailers, homeopathic hospitals, research citations, and veterinary resources.

The links on this page are to a small selection of personal favourites and sites I’ve found helpful and/or interesting and intriguing. Some of them you won’t find at HomeopathyHome. Some are at the general interest level; others are more appropriate for professional homeopaths.

Click on any of the categories from the menu left or simply scroll down the page. The first link in each category will take you directly to the appropriate page at HomeopathyHome. Clicking on any of the links will open up the selected site in a new browser window. Links are regularly checked and updated, but I can’t guarantee they will always work.

If you find any broken links or have any homeopathy-related personal favourites or sites of interest that aren’t listed here or at HomeopathyHome, please contact me and let me know as I’d like to hear about them.

Outcome and costs of homoeopathic and conventional treatment strategies: A comparative cohort study in patients with chronic disorders. Witt, C, Keil, T, Selim, D et al. Complementary Therapies in Medicine (2005) 13, 79-86. German study concluding from an analysis of outcomes for 493 patients that patients seeking homeopathic treatment had a better outcome overall compared with patients on conventional treatment.

Homeopathic medical practice: Long-term results of a cohort study with 3981 patients. Witt, Claudia M, Lüdtke, Rainer, Baur, Roland, and Willich, Stefan N. BMC Public Health 2005, 5:115. This prospective, multi-centre cohort study, was conducted by a research team at Berlin’s Charité University (Germany), including 103 primary care practices with additional specialization in homeopathy in Germany and Switzerland. Data from all patients (age > 1 year) consulting the physician for the first time were observed. The main outcome measures were patient and physician assessments and quality of life at baseline, and after 3, 12, and 24 months. A total of 3,981 patients were studied including 2,851 adults and 1,130 children. Ninety-seven percent of all diagnoses were chronic with an average duration of 8.8 years. Almost all patients had received conventional treatment (95%) prior to the start of this study. Disease severity decreased significantly (p<0.001) between baseline and 24 months. For adults and young children, major improvements were observed for quality of life, whereas no changes were seen in adolescents. Younger age and more severe disease at baseline were factors predictive of better therapeutic success. Disease severity and quality of life demonstrated marked and sustained improvements following homeopathic treatment period.
