“ Homeopathy is one of the few medical specialities which carries no penalties-only benefits”
As a child you must have never liked the bitter taste of allopathic medicines, but loved to have those small globules of homeopathy medicines, isn’t it? Maybe at that time you didn’t know it’s benefits and simply had it because of the way it tastes. On the occasion of world homeopathy day let us throw some light on this excellent medical system that works on the belief that our body can cure itself with just tiny amounts of substances derived from nature.
What is homeopathy?
Homeopathy or homoeopathy is a complementary or alternative medicine (CAM) that is based on a number of ideas developed by a German doctor called Samuel Hahnemann (the founder of homoeopathy) in the 1790s. Homeopathy is regarded as the safest way of treating an array of health issues and maintaining general wellness.
Homeopathy is derived from the Greek words homeo, which means same or similar, and the word pathos, means pain/ suffering/ disease. This medical system believes in ‘Like cures like’, which means the ingredients that are responsible for inducing certain symptoms of the said illness can help to cure the disease. Let us explain it with an example: red onions can make our eyes teary and that is the reason why they are used as an ingredient in allergy remedies in homeopathic treatment.
When and why homeopathy day is celebrated?
The World Homeopathy Day is observed every year on the 10th of April to mark the birthday of German physician Dr Christian Friedrich Samuel Hahnemann. This day is celebrated to pay homage to homoeopathy and its huge contribution to the world of medical science. The celebration of homeopathy day also aims to make people aware of this field of medicine and to develop future homeopathic remedies & strategies that can help mankind. April 10th to April 16 of each year is also celebrated as Homoeopathy Awareness Week.
The theme of 2021 is ‘Homeopathy: the Ultimate Green Medicine’. This year in 2021, it will be the 266th birthday of Hahnemann. In India, this day is celebrated under the aegis of the Ministry of AYUSH, Govt. of India.
