2012 HomeoNet Research Forum Highlights Part 3: Elena Bonilla’s Experience

 

 

 

Elena Bonilla, BSc, DCHM (Honours) and CCHM alumnus, contributed this blog on her experience at the recent Homeonet Conference:

 

I was given the opportunity to present at the Homeonet Research Forum on November 2, 2012. I was thrilled to present to a network of individuals engaged in internationally recognized homeopathic medicine that foster quality research.

 

The majority of the presentations were focused on researches of treatments to support the practice of homeopathy as alternative and complementary medicine (CAM). Mine on the other side was a research directed towards the increase of awareness and integration of the homeopaths because there is no systemic information available on the practitioners and patients treated, the methods and systems used, or the treatment success rates, although homeopathy has been practiced in Canada since 1840.

 

My talk covered the effectiveness of conducting an internet survey to gather information from the participants across Canada and a highlight of the results of the study done in February this year.

 

In relation to the use of an online survey it was observed that it reaches most of the homeopaths but 20% of these did not have valid email addresses registered in their Homeopathic schools and organizations.  About 80% of those invited to participate did not complete a 20-minute survey, and most of the respondents completed the survey in the first session.

 

Over 80% of respondents were female and the average range of age was between 41 to 50 years old. The average number of years of practice was 9 and 18% of respondents had more than 16 years of practice.

 

Conclusions of the study showed that about 60% of respondents held 2 other health related diplomas in addition to homeopathy of which 70% require physical contact with the patient like Reiki, Reflexology, and Bowen.

 

On average 69% of cases were cured with homeopathy and most practitioners started treatment with 200C potencies. More than half of the patients were adult women and 44% of all patients looked for homeopathic treatment after trying allopathic without success.

 

Over 75% of respondents supported regulation in Ontario but were concerned about patient freedom of choice. Over one-half viewed homeopathy as the main CAM therapy and over one-third saw themselves as primary health providers.  The majority believed that following homeopathic principles was critical to clinical success.
