Bitácora plurilingüe de salud y homeopatía, como una revista en crecimiento, dedicada a la salud, y a la homeopatía clásica, desde su uso tradicional hasta los métodos modernos.
A multilingual homeopathic health blog, arranged as a cumulative growing journal, devoted to health matters, specially classical homeopathy, from traditional use to modern methods -
The advantages of the analysis of results in veterinary practice are various. The environment where animals are living can be considered as stable and very similar for all the animals considered. Studies on large animal cohorts are easier to realise than for human. A double-blind design is easier to be obtained. Placebo effects are minimize.
Of course the number of surveys is still few, but for two diagnoses, sufficient studies are published and reproduced; a “level of evidence I” could be obtained very soon.
These two considered diagnoses are infertility in cows (162, 163). These two problems have important consequences for public health; antibiotics (normally prescribed for mastitis) can be found, as residues, in the food chain.
Therefore, the milk produced must be destroyed; the economic consequences for the sector are very important. Moreover, homeopathic treatment is the only one authorized by the European authorities in the framework of biological breeding.
Other results are coming from another farming activity: chickens are very sensitive to stress, when stressed, they are picking each other resulting in important losses in the production (164). The same happens for turkeys, they are very sensitive to haematomas caused by shocks during transportation. This problem can be reduced with 30% with homeopathic treatment. The problem of regulation of sexual hormones of sows in farms (165) is important for the farmer and for the cost in pig production; homeopathy can offer a solution without “ethical” problem or risks for the consumers.
This type of research will be extended in the coming years.
