WHAT IS HOMOEOPATHY?

Homoeopathy is a natural form of medical science which is based on nature’s law, “LIKE CURES LIKE”. Homoeopathic medicines are used by more than 200 million people across the world to treat acute and chronic ailments. As per the homoeopathic law, solutions are chosen based on the symptoms of the patient (exact similimum) and the emphasis is laid on treating the root cause of the disease and annihilating it permanently in its whole extent. Since Homoeopathic medicines are diluted and dynamic, there are usually no side effects and can be safely consumed by people of all age groups.

HISTORY OF DISCOVERY:

Christian Friedrich Samuel Hahnemann (1755-1843), a German physician, discovered the alternative system of medicine called homoeopathy. In the year 1790, while translating Cullen’s Materia Medica, he read about the therapeutic properties of the Peruvian bark (Cinchona Officinalis). According to that research, its medicinal properties could cure intermittent fever. Hahnemann was dissatisfied with this explanation and the way the experiment was conducted. To gain clarity, he started taking the same medicine twice a day himself and eventually noticed that the symptoms were quite similar to ague of Malaria fever. This unexpected result brought varied thoughts to his mind and he started conducting similar experiments with different medicines on himself as well as other individuals. Based on many such successful experiments, Hahnemann concluded that medicines could cure diseases because they can also produce similar diseases in healthy individuals.

CONCEPTS & PRINCIPLES OF HOMOEOPATHY

The homoeopathic system is based on easily comprehensible principles. They are as follows –

Law of Similia: – Medicines which are capable of producing similar symptoms during medication.

Law of Simplex: – Only one medicine is to be applied in a given case at a given time

Law of Minimum: – Using the minimal amount or the smallest quantity of medicine which is sufficient to produce an artificial disease on the vital force as similar to the natural disease.

The Doctrine of Drug Proving: – A systematic process of investigating the pathogenic power (disease curing power) of the medicine by administering it to different healthy human beings of both sexes,different ages and various constitutions. Noting down of those symptoms become the symptoms of the drug.

The Doctrine of Drug Dynamisation: – It is a process, which liberates the inherent power of curative properties of a drug which remain in a latent state through the process of succussion or trituration.

HOMOEOPATHY VS ALLOPATHY
HOMOEOPATHY
  • Homoeopathy is a holistic method of treatment and works by treating the person and not a particular organ or part
  • It treats the patient according to the symptoms
  • It is non-toxic and does not have potent side effects
  • Helps to eliminate the problem from the root
  • Stimulates the immune system which in turn helps to heal the patient naturally
  • Does not suppress the symptoms
ALLOPATHY
  • It treats the patient according to the disease
  • Most medications have some side effects
  • Can affect the immune system of the body
  • Shows almost instant result but suppresses the symptoms of the disease
ADVANTAGES OF HOMOEOPATHIC SYSTEM OF TREATMENT

Homoeopathy was discovered more than 200 years ago by a German allopathy physician, Dr Samuel Hahnemann who was looking for ways of curing diseases that could not be treated with conventional medicines. He observed that the prevalent system of medicine was suppressing the disease rather than treating it. His various observations revealed that diseases not just affect the body, but also the mind and emotions. Therefore, to heal, the medicine should also be able to affect the mind, emotions and body. Homoeopathy is a scientific system of medicine based on the principle, "Similia Similibus Curentur” which means“Let likes be treated by likes”. In homoeopathy, the drugs are majorly sourced from herbs and animal minerals. These are given to healthy human subjects in diluted and non-toxic doses to produce symptoms. The symptoms produced on healthy humans are the curative action of that particular drug. When a patient comes to a Homoeopath, the symptoms are noted and then matched with the symptoms of the drug (a vast number of medicines are available in homoeopathic literature) and a similar drug is given for effective treatment.
