The History of Homeopathy
Homeopathy derives from the Greek homos for Similar and pathos for suffering. The principle like can cure like is the basis of Homeopathy dates back to the Greek Physician Hippocrates in the 5th century BC. He believed that the patients own powers of healing are essential to choosing an appropriate cure and should be encouraged. Hippocrates had a collection of several hundred remedies and was the first person to think that disease is the result of natural forces, not divine influences.
During the 1st to 5th centuries AD Romans made great advances in medicine and increases the knowledge and understanding of the structure and function of the human body. During the dark Ages in Europe, after the decline of the Roman Empire, there was little medical advancement until the early 16th century. At this time the work of the Swiss doctor Paracelsus was greatest achievements. He believed, that plants and minerals contained active ingredients that could be prescribed to match an illness.
Paracelsus also believed that a poisonous substance that causes disease could also cure the disease, if given in very small doses, and that physicians should take into account the body's own natural ability to heal itself. In the late 18th century, Samuel Hanemann, a German Physician and Founder of Homeopathy, became frustrated with conventional invasive medical techniques and developed Homeopathy. As a Professional Doctor and Chemist, Samuel Hahnemann carried out his experiments and provings, testing a wide range of natural sources, such as plants, minerals, metals, etc. He had rediscovered the principle of like can cure like, and his work would bring about the establishment of a new system of medicine. Homeopathy was introduced to North America in 1826 and quickly gained enormous popularity in Canada and the United States.
