I walk on a road lush with dreams,
a road of forgotten and veiled dreams,
sometimes slowly, sometimes gaily,
sometimes lost, sometimes profound,
I walk a road of unknown mysteries,
fervently finding my way through the endless path.....

Impact of Homeopathy on the medical world

"First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they fight you, then you win". -Mahatma Gandhi
When Samuel Hahnemann discovered homeopathy in 1796, nobody knew what impact it could create on the medical world.
It was only when in the 19th century homeopathy began to prove its efficacy against deadly diseases of that time, so much so that by 20th century one-third doctors in America were Homeopaths that the world realised that a system of medicine was born to save people from heroic drugging, leeching, cauterisation and other mal-practices of so called modern medicine.

The tremendous potential of 'like cures like' was out in the open for the world to witness and be cured by. 

Homeopathy has been rising by leaps and bounds since its inception. It suffered from innumerable attacks and so did its followers but time and again this science has proved its mettle.

Our medical world has always been dominated by the giant pharmaceutical companies. It thrives on money and money alone. 
A science like homeopathy which covers all criteria of an ideal system of medicine being cheap, safe, no side effects, easy to administer, minimal dose with maximum impact is bound to create uneasiness and insecurity amongst the medical mafia. 

This insecurity is fought through empty speculations, accuses and stone hurling on homeopathy and its supporters. 
Skeptics tend to ignore the evidence based research and studies.  

They ask for reasons on why it works and how it works and when they aren't able to understand any, they simply refute it all and label it as a mere 'placebo effect'.
Blindfolding themselves to the prompt cure and beneficial attributes it possess.

Little do they know that truth has the power of emerging out as self evident and self explanatory.
The impact of homeopathy on medical world is growing and becoming difficult to overlook and underestimate.


Brilliant results have been found not just in the clinical trials but also practically.
The impeccable performance of homeopathy in cases of innumerable skin diseases, child and maternal health, psychiatric disorders, lifestyle disorders is impossible to ignore. 

The World Health Organization estimates that complementary and alternative medicines, such as homeopathy, are used by over 500 million people annually worldwide. 
The Royal Family of Great Britain has used homeopathy for three generations and has been its strongest advocate.
In India, over 100 million people use homeopathy as their only form of medical care. According to an A.C. Neilsen survey in India, 62% of current homeopathy users have never tried conventional medicines and 82% of users would not switch to conventional treatments. 

It is evident that the impact of homeopathy in medical world cannot be negated. 

As Mark Twain said
"The introduction of homeopathy forced the old school doctor to stir around and learn something of a rational nature about his business. You may honestly feel grateful that homeopathy survived the attempts of the allopaths to destroy it."
