It is desirable that I should tell you something
about Homoeopathy itself, its definition and the history of its origin.
Homoeopathy is a system of medicine formulated in the rule ‘Similia Similibus
Curentur’ meaning thereby ‘Let likes be treated by like’. The originator
or discoverer of this new system was Samuel Hahnemann a great allopathic doctor
who lived in Germany from 1755 to 1843. His experiment suggested him concisely
can be put-up as then idea that a drug ought to be curative in a disease, if it
has power to produce similar symptoms when given to a healthy person. He tested
some drugs too on himself and his friends.
principles of Homeopathy:
That every drug, when taken
in material doses by those in health, produces a group of symptom peculiar
to itself, which we call proving drug.
That ever disease has got
its own peculiar group of symptom, which we call clinical symptom.
And that, if a drug with a
group of symptom similar to the group of symptom of the disease, can be
selected and administered in very small Homoeopathy dose, a cure will follow
if the disease id curable at all drug.
The symptoms of various drug
on healthy body, i.e. the Provings of Drugs.
The symptoms of disease:
Subjective and Objective put together.
How to select and administer
resulting from the adoption of the Homoeopathic system of treatment are several
in numbers, but I shall refer to a few only to save space.
Advantages of the Homoeopathic:
Homoeopathy is easy to learn
as it does not require a minute study of anatomy, Physiology, etc., to
attain a working knowledge of the system.
As totality of symptoms, and
not physical sings, in our guide in the treatment of diseases according to
the Homoeopathic system, we are enable to treat sickness in its early
forming stage and need not wait for pathological lesion to be manifested by
The cure is generally rapid
and the convalescent period is short.
The system is easy to
practice as it enable any one to start treatment by an observation of the
subjective symptom alone and in the majority of case a cure can be effected
in this manner.
Homoeopathy is cheaper than
Allopathic treatment, not only because the dose of the medicine is smaller
and consequently the cost also is less, but the recovery from the disease
within a very short time compared to the Allopathic treatment contributes to
a large extent to its cheapness.
Homoeopathic medication has
no deleterious after effects on the sick person, whereas in many cases under
the old and dominant system of treatment, then medicinal exhaustion is
The medicines are not
disagreeable and even children take without disgust.
There are no strict dietary
measures in Homoeopathy as in some other system like Ayurvedom.
As the quantity of drug
contained in Homoeopathic preparation is generally very very minute, an
accidental administration in the sick of a large dose need not cause such a
great alarm as with an overdose of Allopathic or Ayurvedic medicine and it
need not cause any alarm at all if taken in by the healthy.
The measures used in
Homoeopathy are generally very gentle and humane as compared with those used
in Allopathic or Ayurvedic system.
No purgative, diuretics or
diaphoretic are used in treating chest or brain troubles etc, and so no much
complications arise as resulting from stimulation or over stimulation of the
Homoeopathic medication aims
at not only curing the disease, but is also helpful as a preventive in most
disease, and if used early enough it aborts many of them.
Most of the drugs used in
Homoeopathy have been proved on doctors and their friends when in health in
repeated dose and thus their genuine properties ascertained.
Homoeopathy has been found
successful in treating many chronic cases where other system had failed.
Homoeopathic system is
scientific and stands on sure foundation. It is based on facts and not on
system proposed under this project is useful to take a decision. It contains
symptom, their drugs. And other detail’s regarding that symptom. This is only
a small try to help Homoeopathic physician. This system helps Homoeopathic
physician to manage the history (case paper), medical report of patient, manage
gains and expenses of dispensary.
