Homeopathy may be defined as the therapeutic (treatment of diseases) method of Symptom- Similarity.It should clearly understood that Homeopathy differs from other systems of treatment only in its fundamental doctrine of SIMILIA SIMILIBUS CURRENTER i.e. Let like be cured by like as well in pharmaceutical preparation of homoeopathic drugs. There appears to be no difference so far as preventive medicine or diagnosis is concerned. Homeopathy adopts mechanical part of surgery, dentistry, mid-wife & gynecology etc., but bitterly differs so far follow on treatment is concerned. Homeopathy has a common approach with regards to immunology as it is based on homoeopathic law of similarity but it is in contradiction regarding its pharmaceutical preparation.There is also no difference of fundamental science which is based on fundamental laws like that of Natures Law of Cure.The homoeopathic law of cure is not new.It is ancient in origin.
Its reference is found in Indian philosophy or to say Hindu manuscripts. Later Aristotle recognized it. Hippocrates further looked to its possibilities and applied it in some cases. But the credit goes to Hahnemann who demonstrated to the world that this law is universal and not occasional and thus created a new science and art of healing called Homeopathy. Homeopathy is a natural healing process in which the remedies assist the patient to regain health by stimulating the body's natural healing forces and defenses.The choice of remedy depends more on the patient's individual reaction to illness, mentally and emotionally, than on the signs and symptoms characteristic of the disease. Homeopathy is concerned with the whole person rather than treating the patient simply as a bearer of disease.
