Varicose veins

Clinical trial at a rehabilitation clinic  in Austria, with positive findings, on 61 patients with varicose veins  in the legs. Approximately half of the patients were randomly allocated  to receive a homeopathic medicine called Poikiven; the others received a  dummy medicine (placebo). They did not know which treatment group they  were in. After 24 days, the legs of patients who received the  homeopathic medicine had better leg circulation than those who received  placebo.
