Q.1 What is homeopathy ?

Homeopathy  (also spelled homoeopathy or homœopathy); is a system of alternative medicine originated in 1796 by Samuel Hahnemann, based on his doctrine of similia similibus curentur ("like cures like"), according to which a substance(drug) that causes the symptoms of a disease in healthy people will cure similar symptoms in sick people. It is a system of medical practice that treats a disease especially by the administration of minute doses of a remedy that would in larger amounts produce in healthy persons symptoms similar to those of the disease.

 Q.2 Is Homoepathy a proven science ?

 Hahnemann the founder of homoepathy  and his followers went on to test the effects of almost 100 substances on themselves, a process known as "proving." The typical procedure was for a healthy person to ingest a small amount of a particular substance (drug) and then attempt to carefully note any reaction or symptom (including emotional or mental reactions) that occurred. By this method, Hahnemann and his followers "proved" that the substance was an effective remedy for a particular symptom. The collected experiences of such incidents became the basis for a compendium called the Materia Medica. Because some of the substances tested were toxic (such as poison ivy, strychnine and various snake venoms), during a proving it made sense to ingest minuscule doses. This may be the source or the homeopathic principle of "infinitesimal dilutions" in which the most dilute solutions are alleged to be the most potent.


Scientists from the Indian Institute of Technology-Bombay (IIT-B) have established that the sweet white pills work on the principle of nanotechnology.
    Homeopathic pills—made of naturally occurring metals such as gold and copper-—retain their potency even when diluted to a nanometre or one-billionth of a metre, states the IIT-B research published in the latest issue of Homoeopathy, a peer-reviewed journal published by the reputed Elsevier. IIT-B’s chemical engineering department bought commonly available homoeopathic pills from neigbourhood shops, prepared highly diluted solutions and checked under powerful electron microscopes to find nanoparticles of the original metal. 
    “Our paper showed that certain highly diluted homoeopathic remedies made from metals still contain measurable amounts of the starting material, even at extreme dilutions of 1 part in 10 raised to 400 (200C),’’ said Dr Jayesh Bellare. His student, Prashant Chikramane, presented the paper ‘Extreme homoeopathic dilutions retain starting materials: A nanoparticulate perspective’, as part of his doctoral thesis. IIT theory proves what some homoeopaths have always known 
    Homoeopathy was established in the late 18th century by German physician Samuel Hahnemann. While it is widely popular in certain countries, especially India, the British Medical Association and the British parliament have in recent times questioned homoeopathy’s potency. Around four years ago, British research papers rubbished homoeopathy as a mere “placebo’

Q. 3. Does HOMEOPATHY act slowly ? 

ANS .  1.  The notion "Homoeopathy acts slowly?" or " HOMOEOPATHY takes long time to show results." is not true.

ANS. 5.The slight increase of symptoms does not matter because it is the same symptom in disease to be treated that is aggravated and do not produce any new symptoms. In other systems of medicine like allopathy it produce new symptoms in the form of side effect.

ANS. 6. Medicines can be checked at any reputed laboratory to rule out the possibility. 

 Q. 8. I am a diabetic. Shouldn't homoeopathic medicines will add on to my sugar load as they are made up of sugar? 

 Sugar of pills or technically called globules does not have any influence in diabetic treatment as such a minute globules hardly produce any effect in our system. Globules medicated with suitable medicine for diabetic in fact cures diabetic.
