Homeopathy an alternative system of healthcare

Was established in 1796 by Dr.Samuel Hahnemann,based on his doctrine of “let likes be cured by likes’.According to this system.a substance that produces symptoms of disorder in healthy people cures similar symptoms in sick people.The remedies are prepared by repeatedly diluting a chosen substance in alcohol or distilled water,followed by forceful striking on an Eastic body.Dilution usually continues past the point where no molecules of the original substance remain.Homeopaths select remedies by consulting various reference books/repertories and by considering the totality of the patient’s symptoms;personal,physical and psychological state and life history.Strange,peculiar and rare symptoms carry more weight and mental characteristics of the patient are believed to point strongly to choice of remedy.Degrees and characteristics of anger,pride,melancholy etc.(referred to as symptomtology)are of importance to homeopaths.Hence,different remedies may be prescribed for different patients,while they may be suffering from the same disease.Strictly speaking,homeopathy(the art of self healing)as a displine falls in the category of “Drug Therapeutics”and depends upon symptomatolgy,without depending on diagnostic that are heavily relied upon in other systems of medicine.In homeopathy,instead of the disease,the focus lies on the treatment of the person.
