Homoeopathy – Concepts and Philosophy

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”.

Let us think differently on health

Our Master Hahnemann was one among few outstanding medical men who thought about health in a different manner. He was trained in the traditional way from the famous Medical schools in Leipzig, Vienna, and Erlangen Etc. Soon after he started practice, he understood the barbarity of the medical practice of his time. He could not make compromise with his conscience and thus he had to stop practice. He has not yet been an established practitioner by way of his financial income to support his large family. Still, with a really heavy heart, he took such a hard decision.

Warts :: Homeopathy and Wart

The paper describes two studies, one to evaluate the efficacy of selected homeopathic drugs in the treatment of warts and secondly to evaluate the efficacy of Calc carb in the treatment of Molluscum contagiosum. Warts are one of the most common dermatological disorders. They are caused by DNA viruses, which grow in the epidermis. The source of infection is uncertain; it may be from infected individuals by direct contact, although the degree of infectivity is very low. Casual contact is unlikely to cause infection.
