Homeopathy is a medical philosophy and practice based on the idea that the body has the ability to heal itself. Homeopathy is based on the principle that "like cures like." That is, if a substance causes a symptom in a healthy person, giving the person a very small amount of the same substance may cure the illness.
Homeopathy is a holistic therapy, treating the person as a whole rather than treating specific diseases. This is one of the main differences between homeopathy and conventional medicine. Suppose, if you are suffering from mental depression and skin complaints the conventional medical might treat with different course of treatment from a psychologist and dermatologist; but a Classical Homeopath would consider all of these symptoms to be linked and therefore treat them as a whole.
DISCOVERY OF HOMEOPATHY
Dr. Samuel Hahnemann, (1755 - 1843) ,a German doctor, discovered the science of homeopathy and principle of practicing art in the 18th century.Hahnemann was a respected doctor, but the systems of medicine prevalent at that time, like bloodletting, leeches and use of toxic chemicals greatly disturbed him.He was discontented with the harsh and unsatisfactory medial practice. Hahnemann gave up his flourishing practice.
For his living he took the work of translations of medical literature as he had immense knowledge of different languages. While he was translating Cullen’s Materia Medica from English to German language in 1790, it was mentioned that the drug Cinchona was used to cure Malaria, but Cinchona would also cause the symptoms similar to Malaria. Hahnemann was not appealed with this explanation and decided to experiment on himself. So he did an experiment by taking an overdose of the drug Cinchona and carefully marking down his symptoms. The symptoms were indeed particularly similar to the symptoms of Malaria. After experimenting with other drugs in the same manner and then clinically practicing their results, Hahnemann concluded that the reason that Cinchona cured Malaria was because it could produce similar symptoms to Malaria if given in overdose to a healthy person. This is the basic principle of homeopathy Like Cures Like. Since then Hahnemann started Homeopathy
