Are we, like our grandparents, from the “old school” of thought? Do we think about timeless, traditional ways of keeping ourselves happier and healthier? Just because something is not new and modern doesn’t mean it doesn’t work. An example of that would be Homeopathy and Homeopathic Medicine.
What is Homeopathy? Homeopathy is a practice where, given the right supports or remedies, the body has the ability to heal itself.
Homeopathy was founded by a German doctor, Samuel Christian Hahnemann (1755-1843). He had become dissatisfied with the medicine of his day. For many years Hahnemann’s search was unsuccessful, until he stumbled upon what he thought was an amazing observation: he took a small amount of cinchona bark, which contains quinine, the drug used to treat malaria, and developed the symptoms of malaria. From this observation he developed homeopathy’s first law, “similia similbus curentur,” or let likes be cured by likes. In other words, drugs which cause specific symptoms can be used to cure diseases which cause the same symptoms.
The principle of treating “like with like” dates back to Hippocrates (460 – 377 BC), but in its current form, homeopathy has been used worldwide for more than 200 years. Back in his day, Hippocrates saw the physician as the servant and facilitator of nature. He placed emphasis on strengthening and building up the body’s inherent resistance to disease, and prescribed diet, exercise, massage, hydrotherapy and sea bathing. He was a great believer in dietary measures in the treatment of disease. He saw the chief role of the physician was to aid the natural resistance of the body to overcome the metabolic imbalance and restore health and harmony to the organism.
So like Hippocrates working towards restoring health and harmony to the entire organism, Samuel Hahnemann worked towards a homeopathic goal of finding the “totality of symptoms” of physical, mental, and spiritual. He worked on the premise of what remedy would treat the patient’s “totality.”
