World Homeopathy Day 2019
April 10 is observed as the World Homeopathy Day. Every year World Homeopathy Day is observed on April 10, the birthday of Dr Samuel Hahnemann who discovered Homeopathy in 1796.
World Homeopathy Day aims to create better awareness about homoeopathy, improve its accessibility and to modernise the system of healing.
Homeopathy is an alternative system of medicine based on the principle of ‘Like cures like’. Homeopathy believes that a disease can be cured by a substance that can induce symptoms similar to the ailment itself by using highly-diluted doses of natural ingredients. These diluted doses of natural ingredients are expected to trigger the body’s healing system. Homeopathy is among the Indian government’s AYUSH for alternative medicine
Western medicine dismisses Homeopathy as a mere placebo whose two most important principles are at loggerheads with the laws of physics. But plenty of documented cases exist where people have been seemingly cured of their health conditions with Homeopathy.
