It has been claimed that the library where Hahnmann was employed at Hermannstadt contained historical works, including those of Paracelsus, and a few experts say that, it was those works of Paracelsus, which planted the seed of Homoeopathy in Hahnemann's mind. Continue

Here is a link to youtube in which Mr Brian Brushwood insults homoeopathy and other alternative medicines.
If we watch this video, a few among us may break the computer screen, or respond using rough language. But I never did that, I only felt sympathy towards the critics of homeopathy and their funding agencies, and I am sure, you also will feel the same.

The methodology of case taking in homoeopathy is unique by many ways. Here, the sick individual is keenly observed right from his entry in to the consultation room. A homoeopath considers the patient’s walking style, personal appearance, sitting posture, expressions, behavior, response to questions etc. with due importance. It is a fact that the…

Rare drugs, as the name indicates, are prescribed very rarely and yet we homoeopaths use this term commonly in our day today practice. It is needless to say that these drugs are used rarely and are usually confined to shelves within sealed bottles.
Which are rare drugs?
There is no clear-cut demarcation line between rare and common… Continue

We all enjoy the smiling faces of babies. But when they cry excessively, we go out of mood. A good number of our midnight patients are crying babies brought by their panic stricken parents. Two things done by the doctor can handle the situation smoothly, i.e. diagnosing the cause for crying and giving a dose of indicated homoeopathic medicine. The former is to ease the tension of parents whereas the latter is to make the baby…

Right from the inception of homoeopathy, we are facing a number of threats from the opponents of this science. But, it is interesting to see that most of the opponents in those days later on accepted this mode of treatment as a passion and worked hard to promote homoeopathy worldwide. Dr Herring’s life is the best example. He was actually appointed to write a book against homoeopathy, but after repeating the experiments done by Hahnemann, he became the ardent follower of this science. In India,… Continue

In the recent years, there is a rise in the number of people suffering from piles, a condition medically termed as hemorrhoids. Proportionately, there is a hike in the advertisements in different media on various patent products that are supposed to cure piles.
