In 1994, 2000, and 2003, physicians from the University of Washington & University of Guadalajara tested the use of homeopathic treatments for diarrhea on 81 Nicaraguan children, aged between 6 months to 5 years old.

Every child in the study had previously received hydrating fluids to combat their diarrhea conditions.

Keep in mind that diarrhea can cause dehydration in children, and it is known to be one of the most critical health issues facing Third World countries today. As a matter of fact, the World Health Organization considers diarrhea to be the leading public health danger today as it causes the deaths of 3 million children per year, especially when it leads to dehydration.

The study itself was performed randomly, double-blinded, and was controlled with placebos in order to ensure fair, unbiased results.

After administering a homeopathic remedy to one group of children and a placebo to the other group, the study found that children treated with a homeopathic remedy healed 20% quicker from their diarrhea symptoms than their placebo counterparts.

Other similar studies were carried out with very similar results. The sources for the other two have been posted below for your convenience.

Now that you’ve seen the research, feel free to check out the homeopathic remedies themselves!

  • Dear Ariel,

    I just want to ask you a very simple question about the causation in homeopathy treatments. Since water has no memory according to the following paper: Ultrafast memory loss and energy redistribution in the hydrogen bond network of liquid H2O , Nature 434, 199-202 (10 March 2005) , by M. L. Cowan, et al.can you elaborate on what physical basis (ie, the physics) about the notion in homeopathic medicines which obviously contain no active ingredients (as to constitute a cause in the first place, ie, causality) can have a healing effect in its treatment capability? Would it be acceptable to say that someone (a priest for instance) can just use holy water or just bless a glass of tap water by praying and then that glass of water can be claimed to be effective as a treatment as a homeopathic treatment? If not, then why not? The blessed glass of tap water is no difference to a homeopathic one, since both of them have no basis for causation which can lead to an effect?

    Thank You
