Discovery of Homeopathy


Whole of the 18th century in Europe marked by plethora of theories and hypothesis concerning the nature of disease and its causation

Uncertainty and lack of any fixed principle of healing disappointed

Hahnemann gave up medical practice

         

Devoted himself to the translation of great medical classics

   

In 1790 he engaged in translating ‘Cullen’s Materia Medica’ from English to German language

    

Attention was arrested by the remark “Cinchona bark cure malaria because of it’s bitterness and tonic effects on stomach

    

The explanation appeared unsatisfactory to him

                                                            

To discover its truth, Hahnemann himself ingested 4 drachms of Cinchona bark juice, twice daily for few days

  

He was attacked by the symptoms very similar to the symptoms of malaria fever

 

The unexpected result setup his mind a new train of thought

    

He conducted similar experiments on himself and other individuals with other medicines whose curative action has been well established

  ⇩ 

He led to the inference that medicines cure diseases only because they can produce similar symptoms in healthy individuals

   

So, the basic theory of Homeopathy established as, ‘The Law of Similia’ means Like cures Like

  

"Discovery of Homeopathy was not accidental but methodical."
