Homoeopathy (Homoios = similar; pathos = suffering/disease) is a branch of medical science based on the principle "Similia Similibus Curentur" means "like cures like," i.e., substances that cause certain symptoms in a healthy person can also cure those same symptoms in someone who is sick. It was founded by a German physician Dr. C. F. Samuel Hahnemann in 18th century who is considered as Father of Homoeopathy.
It is one of the most gentle and a sympathetic form of healing that has been growing rapidly all over the globe. World Health Organization (WHO) has designated Homoeopathy as the second largest therapeutic system of medicine that treat patients by stimulating the body’s own healing powers with natural remedies. In Indian context, Homoeopathy is in use for more than a century and a half. It is well blended with the roots and traditions of the country and is now recognized as one of the National Systems of Medicine.
Homoeopathic healing acts deeply on the organism making lasting cures at all levels: physical, mental and emotional. It is holistic: that is, it treats the whole person, not just the disease without any unpleasant side effects. This is a highly personalized form of treatment, so patients who apparently suffer from the same illness may be prescribed different medicines. Homeopathy today has gained wide acceptability, both in India and abroad, because of its holistic and intrinsic values, the low cost of medication coupled with ease of administration and absence of side effects.
