Evaluating the effect on asthma quality of life of added reflexology or homeopathy to conventional asthma management – an investigator-blinded, randomised, controlled parallel group study

Tuesday, January 25th, 2022

This was a randomized, single-blind, parallel-group study that evaluated reflexology and individualized homeopathy as an adjuvant treatment in 84 adult patients with asthma. The primary endpoint was the change from baseline in AQLQ score; secondary endpoints included QoL measured by the ACQ and EQ-5D, spirometry, medication use, asthma symptoms, PEF, and exacerbations. FEV1 and FVC were measured using a Vitalograph dry wedge spirometer.
