Abstract: The authors led a randomised, double-blind, placebo-Controlled trial with the object of demonstrating the efficacy in the homeopathic treatment of the migraine. Sixty patients, both males and females of an included age between twelve and seventy years have taken an only dose 30c potency, every fifteen days, for four times. The experimenter has administered one of eight choosen drugs: Belladonna, Gelsemium, Ignatia, Cyclamen, Lachesis, Natrum muriaticum, Silicea, Sulfur, with the possibility to associate two drugs each other. The choise of the drug has been based on the personal reactivity and on the different complied modalities in the single subject. The clinical controls have been effected two and four months after beginning of the treatment. The statistic elaboration has demonstrated a complete omogenity of the treated group with placebo than the treated group with homeopathic. The analysis of the homeopathycally treated patients has demonstrated a significant reduction in periodicity and intensity of the crisis. The trial showed the real efficacy of the homeopathy compared with the classic experimental study model suitable to own characters of the homeopathy.
