Gene :: Scientists identify first gene linked to scoliosis

Asthma :: History of asthma

The word asthma is derived from the Greek aazein, meaning “sharp breath.” The word first appears in Homer’s Iliad; Hippocrates was the first to use it in reference to the medical condition. Hippocrates thought that the spasms associated with asthma were more likely to occur in tailors, anglers, and metalworkers.

Use of Constitutional types from Boger Boenninghausen’s Repertory

The historic development of constitutional types in Homoeopathy began with a change in Hahnemann’s own pattern of thinking.

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 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.
