A new study published last month shows individualised homeopathy helps manage ADHD in children.
The randomised placebo-controlled single-blind pilot trial published in the Indian Journal of Research in Homoeopathy shows that individualised homeopathic intervention in children showed better outcomes compared to placebo.
A total of 61 patients aged 6-15 diagnosed with ADHD (Homoeopathy = 30, placebo = 31) were randomised to receive either individualised homoeopathic medicine in fifty millesimal (LM) potency or placebo for a period of one year. All patients in the homoeopathy group showed better outcomes and the authors conclude that: this pilot study provides evidence to support the therapeutic effects of individualised homoeopathic medicines in ADHD children. However, the results need to be validated in multi-center randomised double-blind placebo-controlled clinical trial.
