Homeopathy is a system of medicine which is based on the Law of Similars or Similia Similibus Curentur (likes are to be cured by likes). This law was given by Father of Human Pharmacology – Samuel Hahnemann, who was a German physician and the founder of Homeopathy. According to the Law of Similars, a drug capable of producing certain disease-symptoms in a healthy person is capable of removing or relieving similar symptoms in the sick. The drug, which causes symptoms in the healthy, relieves or cures the similar symptoms in the sick in the homeopathic formulation having infinitesimal (immeasurably small) quantity of that drug or without any single molecule of that drug!! To know about how this is possible, that is, to know about the scientific truth of Homeopathy along with the evidences supporting scientific basis of Homeopathy, you can read this post “Is Homeopathy a True Medical Science or Pseudoscience?“. Homeopathy is presently categorized under Alternative medicine or Complementary medicine.
