A recent observational study across 12 countries investigated the effectiveness of homeopathy in the treatment and prevention of childhood migraines.
The 168 children involved in the study were treated with individualised homeopathy according to their symptoms.
The frequency, intensity, and duration of their migraine attacks in the 3 months prior to the commencement of the study were compared with those during the 3-month follow-up period.
The collected data showed a significant decrease in the frequency, severity, and duration of migraine attacks during the 3-month follow-up period and, consequently, reduced absenteeism from school.
The most common preventive remedies were Ignatia amara, Lycopodium clavatum, Natrum muriaticum, Gelsemium, and Pulsatilla.
The most common treatment remedies were Belladonna, Ignatia amara, Iris versicolor, Kalium phosphoricum, and Gelsemium.
The study concluded by saying, “The results of this study demonstrate the interest of homeopathic medicines for the prevention and treatment of migraine attacks in children…”
