Creating Waves of Awareness
I believe this is a major question that must be answered.
If HWC as a community can come up with a concise definition and use it on our blogs, posts, tweets, discussions, websites then we will have a consensus.
The more people read the same definition over and over and over the more it will stick in their minds and provide some insight and understanding. I know it is really not easy to explain. Let's give it a try. Especially at a time when people are using the buzz word "HOMEOPATHY" to sell drugs, mattresses and who knows what else?
Here is an article that says Coka-cola is putting "Homeopathic" Cocaine in sodas for people to 'get high'. Yet in the same breath they claim Homeopathics are diluted so much as to have no effect. Very humorous.
Here is something in the news: NATURAL HOLISTIC HEALTH BLOG
As per the primary principle of Homoeopathy, "Similia Similibus Curentur" or the "Law of Similars" which is the "natural law of healing", diseases are treated by medicines, which are capable of producing in healthy persons, symptoms similar to those of the disease, which it can treat in a sick person.The term "homoeopathy" was coined by Christian Friedrich Samuel Hahnemann and first appeared in print in 1807.
In the LMHI-ECH document about “Medical Homeopathic Education Standards”, “Homeopathy” is defined as: “a method of medical practice, aimed at improving the level of health of an organism by the administration of proven and sucussed/triturated medicines, which are individually selected in accordance with the law of similars.”
Homœopathy: It's a Greek word, which comes from ‘homoios’ = similar and ‘pathos’ = suffering. The term 'Homœopathy' was suggested during the 1807 AD to specify 'modus operandi' involved in this mode of medication. Only first time during the 1807 he expressed that the execution of 'similia' is 'Homœopathy'. Therefore some physicians get confused between the ‘Homœopathy’ and ‘similia’. The ‘similia’ was begun emerging with the individual experiences about 2500 BC and it was known then as ‘Samh Samam Samyati’. But, in the most scientific experiments, executed in recent era, it has come out of them, it's a most scientific mode of medication.
