About Homeopathy
Homeopathy is the second largest system of medicine, founded by Dr Samuel Hahnemann, MD, in 1794 in Germany. Homeopathy is practiced in most parts of the world. It is based on the fundamental principle of Like cures Like or The Law of Similars.

Homeopathy today is a rapidly growing system and is being practiced almost all over the world. In India it has become a household name due to the safety of its pills and gentleness of its cure. A rough study indicates that about 10% of the Indian population solely depends on homeopathy for their health care needs.

It is more than a century and a half now that Homeopathy is being practiced in India. It has blended so well into the roots and traditions of the country that it has been recognized as one of the National Systems of Medicine and plays an important role in providing health care to a large number of people. Its strength lies in its evident effectiveness as it takes a holistic approach towards the sick individual through promotion of inner balance at mental, emotional, spiritual and physical levels.

The Concept
The word homeopathy (British: Homoeopathy) is derived from two Greek words, Homois (meanssimilar) and pathos (means suffering). Homeopathy simply means treating diseases with medicines administered in very minute dose, which have capacity of producing symptoms similar to the disease if taken by healthy persons. Dr. Samuel Hahnemann (1755-1843) gave it a scientific basis in the early 19th century. It has been serving suffering humanity for over two centuries and has withstood the upheavals of time and has emerged as a time-tested therapy. The scientific principles propounded by Hahnemann are natural and well proven and continue to be followed with success.

Recognition by the government of India
Homeopathy was introduced officially in India as early as 1840 in the Court of Maharaja Ranjit Singh By John Martin Honengberger. The popularity of the system led to a mushroom growth of quacks practicing homeopathy. Seeing this deplorable state of affairs, the Government several steps to regulate its education and practice. The setting up of Homeopathic Enquiry Committee in 1948, the Committee by Planning Commission in 1951,Homeopathic Advisory Committee in 1952 and the Homoeopathic Pharmacopoeia Committee in 1962 testify to this and helped to evolve a suitable arrangement to regulate teaching and practice of homeopathy. The Government of India have accepted Homeopathy as one of the National System of Medicine and started releasing funds for its development, during the Second five-year Plan. Some of the States also made their own contribution to Homeopathic Education, the employment of Homeopathic practitioners in health services and regulating the practice by enacting States Acts, etc.

The recommendations of these committees led to passing of a Central Act in 1973 for recognition of this system of medicine appointed a Homeopathy now has been accepted as one of the National Systems of Medicine in India.
