A number of studies demonstrate a high level of patient satisfaction with homeopathic and anthroposophic medicine treatment.
- One observational study of patients receiving homeopathic treatment confirmed that 95% of patients expressed very high satisfaction with their homeopathic treatment while rating of their previous treatment was only 20%. The large majority (89%) said homeopathy had improved their physical condition.
- Another study showed that patients of homeopathic physicians were more often “completely satisfied” with their treatment than those in conventional care in a primary care setting - that is 53% compared to 43%.
- An observational study at Bristol Homeopathic Hospital over a 6-year period found that 70% of follow-up patients reported improved health, 50% referring to major improvement.
- Similarly, patients report very high satisfaction with anthroposophic healthcare; patient satisfaction is generally high and therapeutic expectations are fulfilled.
These studies suggest that the development of integrative medicine, including homeopathy and anthroposophic medicine, is a rational and sustainable trend.
