Out of great respect I would like to give a brief biography of the founder of Homoeopathy Dr. Samuel Hahnemann a German Doctor.
Hahnemann is the most important figure in homoeopathy, he was born April 10, 1755, in Meissen, Germany. It was by his very astute and careful observations as a young doctor whilst translating medical papers that he discovered/uncovered and then created a system of alternative medicine we now call homoeopathy.
Homeo is from the Greek and means, like or similar. Pathy also from Greek means suffering, so we can see that the homoeopathic medicines are made from substances that give the ‘similar sufferings’, in symptoms only, not pathology, hence like cures like, not to be confused with same cures same, as we have in allopathic medicines in the form of vaccines. Homoeopathic medicines create a trigger in the body which starts a chain reaction back to health. The symptoms that were first to show are the last to go, for example if you started with eczema and after much treatment you developed asthma, then with good homoeopathic treatment the asthma would go first, followed later by the eczema. All homoeopathic medicines are diluted beyond any possible gross or toxic effects.
Homoeopathy a form of holistic medicine used by over 200 million people worldwide to treat both acute and chronic conditions. It is based on the principle of ‘like cures like’ – in other words, a substance taken in small amounts will cure those same symptoms it ’causes’, when we say it ’causes’ we refer to the homoeopathic remedies that are given in a extremely diluted state to healthy individuals who then form symptoms. Those symptoms are recorded and from that record emerges a remedy ‘picture’ that remedy picture of symptoms and idiocracies has to be matched to a person ‘suffering’ from that symptom picture. This perfect match triggers the cure.
According to recent surveys in France, an astounding 40% of the French public have used homoeopathic medicines, and 39% of French physicians have prescribed them. According to an article in the British Medical Journal, 42% of British physicians surveyed refer patients to homoeopathic physicians. Another survey of British physicians discovered that 80% of recent graduates wanted training in either homoeopathy, acupuncture, or hypnosis. In India it is even more popular, presently, there are over 100,000 homeopathic doctors and over 100 colleges running courses over 4 or 5 years in their homeopathic medical colleges.
Homoeopathic medicines are manufactured using a process combining serial dilution and succussion (vigorous shaking). Homeopathic medicines are perfectly safe to use for babies, children and pregnant women even those who are breastfeeding, or those patients who are under the supervision of a conventually qualified medical practitioner.
