Homeopathy is being practiced in all continents of the world either as an independent system or as complementary / alternative form of medicine. Within a short span of over 200 years of its origin, the system has been able to muster popularity and official patronage in several countries.
The human body is wonderfully adaptive and is constantly maintaining its equilibrium and harmony. This process of adjustment is continuous. For example, on a hot day we sweat and in the cold we shiver. These simple examples are good illustrations of the constant adjustments being made due to the environment or specific stimuli. The endocrine and nervous systems are involved in mediating these adjustments, though all of the body's systems are involved in a complex process designed to maintain homeostatic equilibrium.
When the stimuli are weak, the body's response is moderate; the resulting changes are minimal or pass without our notice at all. When the stimuli are great, then the body's response must be equally strong or the body will be overwhelmed and the changes which occur to our body can be equally dramatic. Homeopaths maintain that ultimate cure consists in restoring health in a rapid, safe, gentle and sustainable manner by eliminating and obliterating the health problems.
. To provide the status that is due to Homeopathy, proper scientific research and understanding of the mechanisms behind it has become a must. Curing a patient still remains our primary goal, but if we need to make this system accessible to everyone, then we need to do a lot more.
