HOMEOPATHY the Best Alternative System of Medicine

          By Dr.B.P.Sharma, DHMS,PG(R.T.)


The time has come today that the people have started realising "what is good for their health and what is not." They are now switching over to the Homeopathic System of Medicine which, of late was lying low  due to its lack of availability to the common people around the world. Despite this fact, it is the second largest system of medicine being practiced in the World , after Allopathic System of Medicine, as acknowledged by the World Health Organisation. Till late it was used only by the select class of  people, world-wide, who know the efficacy and hidden powers of homeopathic medicines for curing any acute or chronic diseases, without any side effects. Some well known devotees of homeopathy have included Queen Elizabeth II and her family, John D.Rockefeller, Mahatma Gandhi, Mark Twain, Tina Turner, Charles Dickens etc.


It  is an established fact that homeopathy which was born in Germany in 1796, took the world by storm  in the 18th Century and after having introduced and attaining popularity in USA(including Canada) and Europe,  took its roots in India which has the World's second largest population and is very widely  practiced there due to its efficacy and affordability by the common people. In addition to private Homeopathic Physicians, there are many Government run Hospitals and Dispensaries providing medicare to the patients  in that country. Its popularity has since spread the world-over, having already  been recognized by the World Health Organisation and has now over 500 million patients world wide.


In Canada,  Homeopathy was duly regulated in 1869, when the Ontario Medical Act was passed, (SUP 1869), which integrated allopaths, homeopaths and eclectics in a provincial body, the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Ontario (CPSO).  The integration of three different systems of medicine within the same regulatory body was quite unique, unlike the situations in other countries, such as United States and England due to confrontations between the different disciplines of the systems of the Medicine. There were licensed Homeopaths  in Canada and also a Homeopathic Hospital in Montreal which also included  Queen Elizabeth Hospital to train nurses. However due to  confrontations between the  disciplines of  the  different Medical systems and also due to the changed population patterns at that time, Homeopathy could not be continued to be a regulated profession after 1970 when the Medical Act was replaced by the Health Disciplines Act, 1974, which was superseded by the Regulated health Professions Act 1991. Presently, there are twenty-three self regulating health professions in the province of Ontario and the Ontario Homeopathic Association has submitted its proposal for the regulation of homeopathy in Ontario.


Today, a majority of Allopathic Doctors have themselves started prescribing Homeopathic medicines for some diseases which are either incurable by Allopathic system of medicines or where they cannot afford to take risk in some patients for the side-effects of the Allopathic medicines. This  is because, they have now realised that Homeopathic medicines which are just minute doses of botanical and mineral potions, are capable  of stimulating the body to heal miraculously.  These minute doses ( in sweet pills or dilutions) have demonstrated in curing the diseases which are not only curable but also incurable by the Allopathic system of medicines, the list of which (incurable by the Allopathy) is unending e.g. Asthma, Dermatitis, Vitiligo, Psoriasis, Tumors, undiagnosed diseases and some disease requiring surgical intervention like Gangrene, Tonsillitis, Piles, Kidney stone, etc.


-Homeopathic system of medicine which is based on Natural law of cure was founded by Dr. Samuel Hahnemann, a German Doctor who perfected the Homeopathic Pharmacopoeia in 1790.  It is based on the principle "Similia Simlibus Curentur" which means "Likes cure likes".  It

implies that symptoms of the diseases manifested by the patients can be annihilated and removed (thus curing them) only by a medicine capable of producing (in the human system) similar symptoms as manifested by the disease. To elaborate it, I quote some examples; when Cinchona bark (a herb) is given in material doses to a healthy individual for some time, it produces, Malaria-like symptoms in that individual and if it is given in homeopathic  doses to a patient, who is suffering from Malaria, it cures the patient of Malaria by annihilating Malaria Parasite. Like-wise when Ipecac (root of a herb) is taken in high doses, it causes vomiting but when used in homeopathic doses, it relieves nausea and vomiting. Another example is coffee, known to affect sleep for most people.  But when taken in homeopathic does, it treats  'Sleeplessness' (Insomnia).  In such a manner 'God'  has created a variety of herbs, minerals and other creations in the universe which if administered to a healthy individual, produces symptoms exhibited by nearly all the diseases- no matter what the name is, and at the same time capable of curing them in the most natural way.


Homeopathy philosophy explains that when a person gets ill or diseased, his vital force - which animates the material organism in health and in disease, gets deranged and makes it  known by the manifestations of diseases i.e. morbid symptoms.  It is the morbidly effected vital force that produces diseases .  It can only be corrected permanently, by medicines, prescribed in dynamic form which are made by way of potentization-which means a process by which the inert power of medicine is released  - so as to produce similar and artificial form of  totality of symptoms exhibited due to deranged vital force, in the individual which (the medicine) annihilates the totality of symptoms manifested by the disease.  The strength of the medicines is regulated by the Homeopathic Physician who prescribes the medicines in such manner that it cures the diseases rapidly, gently, permanently and without any side effects.


Due to declining quality of medical care in Canada today, it is appropriate for the Government to augment the present 'shrinking' regulated Health Care with Homeopathy which  is highly economical and has the proven capacity to give the best  alternative health care and satisfaction to the increasing  population of Canada.
