Creating Waves of Awareness
I start this discussion by the name "My Conversion to Homoeopathy" and will try to put forward the story of conversion to homoeopathy from other fields, may it be our Master Dr.C.F.S.Hahnemann, or Dr. Boenninghausen, etc.
You can put in your story (If You have had similar experiences) or stories of someone you know.
This will add data to the history of homoeopathy.
Looking forward for your valuable participation.
Let us enter into the History!
Dr.Hahnemann, as all knows, was translating Cullen's Materia Medica came across a footnote under Cinchona or the peruvian bark that its curative eminence in malaria was due to its astringent properties. Hahnemann was not convinced with this explanation because there were other substances with more astringent properties used in medicine, but not useful to cure malaria. Dr. Hahnemann experimented on himself in 1790 by taking four drahms of a potion made from Peruvian bark. He experienced similar symptoms to that of malaria. This observation and its reconfirmation on other individuals made him record that "Peruvian bark, which is used as a remedy for intermittent fever, acts because it can produce symptoms similar to those of intermittent fever in healthy people". This led him formulate the principle, similia similibus curanter and from a clinician and chemist of his time he became the Father of Homoeopathy.
