Homeopathy 'improves quality of life' for chronic sinusitis patients
Homeopathic treatment improves the quality of life of patients with chronic sinusitis, say German researchers.
Their study followed 134 adults with long-term symptoms of sinusitis over eight years, with 97% previously treated with conventional medicine.
Quality of life was improved at follow-up, with SF-36 physical improvement scores increasing from 0.27 to 0.44 over two years and mental component scores from 0.66 to 0.74.
