Homoeopathy today is a rapidly growing system and is being practiced across the world. In India, it has become a household name owing to the safety of its pills and gentleness of its cure. According to a study, indicates that about 10% of the Indian population solely depends on Homoeopathy for their health care.
The word ‘Homoeopathy’ is derived from two Greek words, Homois meaning similar and pathos meaning suffering. Homoeopathy simply means treating diseases with remedies, prescribed in minute doses, which are capable of producing symptoms similar to the disease when taken by healthy people. It is based on the natural law of healing- "Similia Similibus Curantur" which means "likes are cured by likes". Dr. Samuel Hahnemann (1755-1843) gave it a scientific basis in the early 19th century.
*** The Homeopathy treatment is determined after evaluation of the patient's case in a great detail. The case-study is the most vital part of the treatment, whereby various aspects of the patient's life-style, personality, food-habits, emotional make-up, personal and the family history are evaluated appropriately to decide on the correct medication to treat.
