In April 2003, a clinical trial was concluded in Obitsu Sankei Hospital, Saitama, Japan. The trial carried out over the previous two years, involved a group of patients diagnosed as suffering from intractable atopic dermatitis (IAD). IAD is a form of eczema (atopic dermatitis) which has not responded to any medication so far. These patients were put on homeopathic medication for an average period of two years. Subsequently the study was concluded with the following report:
88% of the patients reported reduction in itching
77% of the patients reported improvement in sleep due to overall improvement in IAD
75% patients reported increased overall satisfaction in life
63.5% patients reported increased sense of work fulfillment
71.5% patients reported improved satisfaction in human relations
These results astonished the doctors carrying out the trial especially since it occurred in a group of patients who had not responded to any medication earlier. The fact that nearly 75-80% of these patients were now better with homeopathic medicines was an eye-opener to the doctors at the institute and for the entire world.
Additionally, the study clearly showed that not only was the primary complaint of atopic dermatitis relieved, but overall too, the patients experienced greater satisfaction resulting from the treatment, proving conclusively that homeopathic treatment is truly holistic in nature.
At Dr. Batra's, with our experience of successfully treating thousands of cases of eczema over the last 35 years, we are in possession of the experience and expertise to handle the cases with utmost care. The reason why our medication scores over conventional medication (like steroidal ointments used for treating eczema) is that it corrects the deviated immune process, which is the root cause of eczema or the skin allergy. The medication works to restore this deviated immunity to give rise to a series of repeated and increasingly prolonged remissions in the symptoms, which eventually proceeds to a good control of the disease.
At the same time, side-effects (as those seen with steroids) like thinning of the skin, atrophy of skin, secondary fungal and bacterial infections of the skin are completely avoided here.
It must be borne in mind that treatment duration varies from case to case and depends on many factors such as duration of the eczema, its extent and severity, and the previous treatment taken. However, the treatment has multiple benefits to offer to every patient of eczema and hence is strongly suggested for all cases.
