Patients who practice homeopathy often say the health improvements are long lasting, according to a study in the journal BMC Public Health. Patients reported long term improvement in chronic conditions such as headaches, allergies and sleep problems.

However, the findings do not necessarily mean the controversial alternative therapy is responsible for the benefits according to researchers. They say many of the other patients also used other types of alternative care as well as conventional medicine.
