The researchers found that over 63 percent of those who took the homeopathic treatment experienced some relief while over a third experienced complete relief within two hours of taking the treatment compared to just 39 percent who were given the dummy treatment.

The study however has attracted some criticism with Dr Rebecca Erwin Wells of the Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center stating that the study was authored by the CEO and chairman of PuraMed Bioscience which prepares such homeopathic treatment.
