Vertigo
  • Systematic review of two clinical  trials, with positive conclusions.  Includes RCTs reported in the  following papers: (A) Issing W, Klein P, Weiser M (2005). The  homeopathic preparation Vertigoheel versus Ginkgo biloba in the  treatment of vertigo in an elderly population: a double-blinded,  randomized, controlled clinical trial. Journal of Alternative and  Complementary Medicine, 11:155–160; (B) Weiser M, Strösser W, Klein P  (1998). Homeopathic vs. conventional treatment of vertigo: a randomized  double-blind controlled clinical study. Archives of Otolaryngology –  Head and Neck Surgery, 124:879–885. PubMed Link
  • Clinical trial, with positive findings,  on 154 patients with vertigo who were treated at study centres in  Germany. Approximately half of the patients were randomly allocated to  receive a homeopathic medicine called Vertigoheel and the others  received the herbal remedy Ginkgo biloba. Patients were not told which  treatment group they were in. After 6 weeks of treatment, there was a  similar improvement in vertigo status in the two treatment groups,  showing that homeopathy and Ginkgo biloba were similarly effective in  the treatment of vertigo in these patients.

  • Clinical trial, with positive findings,  on 105 patients with vertigo who were treated at general medical  practices in Germany. Approximately half of the patients were randomly  allocated to receive a homeopathic medicine called Vertigoheel and the  others received a conventional anti-vertigo drug called betahistine.  Patients were not told which treatment group they were in. After 6 weeks  of treatment, there was a similar improvement in vertigo status in the  two treatment groups, showing that homeopathy and betahistine were  similarly effective in the treatment of vertigo in these patients.
