Congratulations to Penny Barron, Aurum Project Research Co-ordinator, on the success of her paper at the 8th Australian Homeopathic Medicine National Conference, 2012. She had so many wonderful comments after her presentation: “A retrospective case series analysis on the treatment of glue ear by homeopathic practitioners at the Harbord Homeopathic Clinic.”
Basically her research found that treatment programmes using ear mix, plus a carefully chosen constitutional remedy, and some dietary advice had a high success rate.
This is a finding of great importance since otitis media is such a common reason for children to be taken to the doctor for treatment.
In Australia, one study estimated the average incidence of recurrent Acute Otitis Media and its complications in Aboriginal children to be as high as forty two percent.
