The British Homeopathic Association has a two page downloadable pdf summarizing research into homeopathy

A British journalist who has tried homeopathy has written that homeopathy may seem weird, but it works and that that's all that matters -

Lionel Milgrom, PhD, a homeopath and research scientist,  addresses many of the issues that people find challenging about homeopathy - the lack of double blind trials, the  possible theory of 'memory of water' etc.

The following website has reported that a landmark paper on homeopathy and cancer has appeared in the February 2010 issue of the International Journal of Oncology. The paper reports on a study of four homeopathic remedies that have shown positive results using homeopathic remedies on breast cancer cells.
The study is significant because -
a) it was carried out at a top cancer research hospital in the U.S.;
b) it was reported in the International Journal of Oncology - a highly respected, peer-reviewed, mainstream medical journal; and
c) the homeopathic remedies were tested on breast cancer cells 'in vitro' - i.e. in a laboratory petri dish - not on patients - which means there can have been no 'placebo effect' .

An article in another mainstream medical journal - BMC Cancer - has shown that under homeopathic care sizeable benefits were achieved. The improvement was clinically relevant and statistically significant. It could also be seen in symptoms of physical and mental fatigue. The article suggests that classical homeopathic care could complement conventional cancer care to the benefit of patients.

Google 'Kinesiology' and 'George Goodheart' – a chiropractor who developed it in the 1960s – to see more information about kinesiology.  A link with a brief history of applied kinesiology is -

Nobel Prize winning virologist Dr Luc Montagnier, has voiced support for homeopathy in Science magazine (December 2010)

If you're interested in the science of how homeopathy and kinesiology might work, then have a look at Lynn McTaggart's book 'The Field' - available from Pinnacle Books in Wellington, or online.  In this book she reports physics experiments that show that the 'weird' quantum effects known and accepted to occur at the huge universe level and at the nano level also occur in between - i.e. at the human level, and within the biology of our bodies.  It's well written and fully referenced. There's a link to  'The Field'  at which is a good thumbnail sketch of where she's at  -  

Lynn McTaggart's latest book - 'The Bond' builds on this research and explains how physics shows we are all connected.  She goes on to describe how humankind craves this connection and cooperation rather than competitive business and other practices and suggests that the big changes we see around us in the world at the moment (such as the shake-down of the economic system and the large media conglomerates, and the big changes occuring in many countries as people overthrow their dominating governments) are part of the universe re-balancing.  She says the universe will always seek equilibrium and 'fairness' and when things get really out of kilter and 'unfair', it will re-balance to bring things into line. She also describes how any project which truly has at its core a belief and intention to help and bring good to the 'whole' will be able to use this energy for success.
