Homeopathy is an ancient system of medicine which was founded by an allopathic physician Dr. Samuel Hahnemann in 1796.
Dr. Samuel Hahnemann was a German Physician who was dissatisfied by the ways of treatment used in modern medicine in his time. So he left the practise and started translating books.
On one fine day he was translating a book which stated that cinchona bark can produce malaria like symptoms and he tried the experiment on himself. He got the theory from it that since a drug can produce certain symptoms in a healthy person, it can cure the similar symptoms in a diseased also.
Thus the first law of homeopathy was formed (similia similibus curentur) which is similar cures similar.
Soon homeopathy emerged and now a days its is used as an alternative system of medicine worldwide and as a second mode of treatment after allopathy.
Homeopathy treats the person as a whole that is the totality of symptoms is treated and the person feels better with the medicine in every sphere be it mentally, physically or spiritually.
Homeopathy has very good scope in treatment of chronic and recurring diseases. Though its effectiveness in acute cases also can’t be denied.
Homeopathy stands out amongst all the other methods of treatment as in homeopathy the disease is cured and removed from the roots. For removing the disease minimum doses of medicines are given and the medicines have no side effects on the person also.
