Title : Aiming for a homeopathic research juggernaut


Effects of homeopathic medicine can be dramatic, and homeopathy is a system of medicine par excellence that lends itself to the double-blind randomized controlled trial. Since this is the clinical study design that provides the highest internal validity, the question arises why the literature is not awash with high quality meta-analyses reporting on these effects. The talk will give examples of homeopathic studies that give a clue as to why capturing and reporting effects of homeopathy has been problematic. It will also report on how the current simillimum study in India is circumventing these issues in clinical studies and provides a springboard to perform multiple definitive phase 3 RCTs in homeopathy. This is incorporated almost seamlessly into daily homeopathic practice, with minimal disruption to the practice of practitioner participants. Time permitting, the talk will give a brief overview of work done in Bulgaria, Hungary and Scotland relating to the use of potentized optical isomers or ‘mirror image’ molecules, that are ubiquitous in nature, and provide a robust platform for investigating potency effects.


Dr Michael Kuzeff graduated in medicine from Monash University in Australia and has been practicing family medicine for 35 years with an interest in homeopathy.  He is a consultant in homeopathy at the National Institute of Integrative Medicine in Melbourne, Australia. He was on the advisory board of the US peer-reviewed journal Alternative Therapies in Health and Medicine from the journal’s inception in 1995 until 2005. Between 1997 and the present, he has published several studies using serially succussed and diluted substances, notably using optical isomers, or mirror-image molecules, for which he is the named inventor on Australian and US patents.  Most recently Dr Kuzeff is the propounder and principal author of the simillimum randomized controlled trial currently being undertaken as pilot study in India.  This was first discussed during a talk at the Indian consulate in Sydney, Australia, in November 2019.
