Question asked in a ‘Homeopaths only’ group on social media: What injuries improve the most as a result of homeopathic treatment?
The outcomes are non-representative!
Participants were able to tick one or more boxes.
The results enabled derivation of the following data (in %):
The general response showed highest impact measures of homeopathic treatment for ‘Mental / Emotional’ Issues (37.142%); followed by just more than ¼ of homeopaths responses for significant impact of homeopathy on chronic diseases (28.571%). It was claimed that acute afflictions are best resolved using homeopathy by 25.714%, and physical injuries were considered to respond best to homeopathy by 8.571% of responses.
Graph 1 illustrates this:
The spread of responses given across the number of choices available was as follows:
16.66% ticked all 4 options
22.22% ticked 3 options
22.22% ticked 2 options
and 38.88% ticked just 1 option.
This is illustrated in graphic form here:
Of the participants that ticked only one response, outcomes showed the following believes:
57.142% thought Mental/Emotional issues resolved the best with homeopathic treatment.
14.285% believed Chronic afflictions responded the best to homeopathy.
28.571% were convinced Acutes improved best.
Compared against each other the following illustrates the multiple choice responses versus the genuine responses received:
This shows that there is only small deviation in the results when comparing the multiple response option to the genuine ‘one-only’ response. However physical injuries are not considered of major responsiveness in the single responses given to the question, while they were significant in the multiple option responses.
Homeopaths argued that all afflictions to health, indifferent of their nature reacted equally well to homeopathic treatment. However it was stressed that the extent of responsiveness depended on the given case, and the persons involved. Due to the nature of illness it was further pointed out that acute and physical afflictions were less complex and therefore were faster in their resolution than the mental/emotional or the chronic diseases.
