... In a double-blind, controlled experiment, special [8][9][10][11][12] week old BALB / c mice were used, which are usually used as experimental animals in studies of the immune system. Mice were infected with Leishmania infantum flagellates. ...
... There are many more homeopathic studies with production animals. An Indian study reported that homeopathic and allopathic drugs had equally good effects on broiler chicken's growth and food intake [10]. This prompted the question of whether homeopathy could replace part of the supply of drugs. ...

We have been discussing homeopathy and researching the literature with a well-known and respected Finnish homeopath, Jouni Jämsä ( We have talked about homeopathy in general, looked at studies of diluted homeopathic preparations and talked about how plants as well as individual cells respond to homeopathy. In addition, we have investigated in quite a detail homeopathy for cancer patients [1, 2, 3, 4]. In this fifth part of the review, we investigate the effects of homeopathic preparations on animals. Homeopathy has been examined in animals Do animals respond to homeopathy? Yes, they do and there are many such investigations. In general, it seems that homeopathy is having a pretty good effect on eg. animals in food production. The use of homeopathic preparations can reduce the amount of drugs used in animal production. The drugs stay in the food chain and also affect people or increase the environmental impact of animal production. Let us look at some animal studies where homeopathy plays a key role? Trichinella spiralis, a nematode that causes trichinosis in humans, domestic and production animals as well as wild animals lies and lurks in the digestive tract. Controlling the muscle phase of this parasite is complicated. However, the number of larvae in Trichinella decreased in an experiment with infected mice receiving homeopathic preparations. The studies were conducted at the Department of Zoology in Visva-Bharati University, India. The purpose of this study was to determine if potent homeopathic drugs such as Cina 30, Santoninum 30 and Podophyllum's stock solution can affect the muscle phase of the Trichinella parasite. Another goal was to see if trichinosis could be treated with these three homeopathic medicines. Each mouse was infected with Trichinella larvae. Treatment was started on day 7 after infection and continued for 120 days. At the end of the treatment mice were sacrificed and the larvae extracted from the muscles. The water content of the muscles was measured. Podophyllum Theta, Cina 30 and Santoninum 30 reduced the larval population of Trichinella in mice by 68.14%, 84.10% and 81.20% respectively compared to the untreated control group. Potential ethanol alone (one control group) did not achieve a significant decrease in the larval population. The potentiated drugs were more effective than the stock solution alone. The potentiated homeopathic drugs significantly reduced the water content of the muscle tissue, possibly affecting the larvae in this way. Some of the homeopathic preparations used in the experiment were diluted over the Avogadro's number [5].
This 2nd edition gives every health professional and pharmacist the broad information they need to dispense and counter-prescribe homeopathic methods with confidence. Designed as both a complete source of initial information and an everyday reference, Homeopathic Pharmacy provides detailed information on the procedures, principals, and applications that are essential in the practice of homoeopathic medicine. It describes the application of homeopathy for both general situations, such as first aid, dentistry, sportscare, and petcare, and for specific situations, such as allergies, infections, and teenagers problems.
An historical outline of veterinary homœopathy is given together with brief reasons for the recent increase in demand for homœopathic treatment and limiting factors preventing wider acceptance of the discipline. A pilot survey is described in which the six homœopathic medicines most frequently prescribed by homœopathic veterinarians have been identified together with their applications.
