HOMEOPATHY

HOMEOPATHY

Homeopathy is derived from two Greek words “homoeos” meaning similar and “pathos” meaning suffering. Translated literally, it means “similar suffering”.

It is a system of medicine propounded by Dr. Samuel Christian Hahnemann, a German physician (1755-1843), who was responsible for the first thorough scientific study and systematic investigation of it’s effects. Hahnemann’s work lead to the consolidation of homeopathy as an organized medical specialty.Homeopathy is a medical specialty that has been in worldwide use for just over two hundred years. Thus was born Homeopathy- Similar Suffering, and the law of cure- SimiliaSimilibusCurentur, that is, ‘let likes be cured by likes’. In simple terms, it means, ” any substance that can produce a set of signs and symptoms in a healthy person can be used to cure a similar set of signs and symptoms in a diseased person”.

Homeopathy is a system of medicine which assists the natural tendency of the human body to heal itself. It acknowledges that all symptoms of ill health are a mere manifestation of the disharmony within the whole person and that it is the patient that requires treatment and not the disease. It has been in existence worldwide for nearly two hundred years and its popularity is rising in the present day.

THE “LAW OF SIMILARS”:

The Law of Similars states: “SimiliaSimilibusCurentur,” which translates from the latin to mean: “Let likes be cured by likes.” This means that the suffering of illness can be treated and cured by agents that are capable of producing a similar state of suffering in a healthy host. Samuel Hahnemann was one of the first physicians to devise and apply the concept of a ‘drug trial’ to study the effects of medicines in healthy hosts. As part of his investigations he used “quantitative and systematic procedures, clinical trials with control groups , and … statistics in medicine”.
