Women with PMS under Homeopathic treatment: improvements in PMS symptoms, health and quality of life. By M Yakir at al.
After the pilot study that exhibited good results, we repeated the study on a grander scale - this time with about participants - with the same favorable results and even more details. In both trials, a novel approach was applied for the purpose of determination of the efficacy and reproducibility of classical homeopathic treatment in Premenstrual Syndrome (PMS). Findings: 96 women, with evident PMS completed the study. Significantly higher improvement of PMS symptoms (mean MDQ scores) occurred in the homeopathically treated group compared to the controls (0.35 vs. 0.2, p=0.05). Marked reduction (90%) in number of sick days, (p=0.007). Significant reduction in medication intake (75% vs. 36%, p=0.03). Better self assessment (p=0.043) and more.
