Father of Homeopathy: Dr. Samuel Hahneman 

Dr. Christian Friedrich Samuel Hahnemann was a German-born doctor who was a brilliant physician, linguist, and applauded scientist. Homeopathy is a type of medicine that works on the principle of activating the healing responses of the body itself. It was established over 200 years ago it was, and its prominence does not show any signs of fading. Homeopathy was invented by Dr. Samuel Hahnemann, a German physician who practiced western medicine himself.

In 2020 next year, it will be Hahnemann's 265th birthday. On this day, let's hear about some of the most interesting facts about the alternative medicine system and the World Homeopathy Day 2020-April 10, Theme, and History.

About Homoeopathy:

Homeopathy is an alternative type of medicine that believes 'like cures like.' According to homeopathy, a disease may be healed through a drug that can cause symptoms identical to the illness itself by using extremely diluted doses of natural ingredients.

Modern medicine opposes homeopathy as a pure placebo whose two most relevant concepts are in the adornment of physics laws. But faith patients have not seen much improvement in homeopathy. There are several known cases where people with homeopathy have been cured of their health conditions.

Homeopathy is also one of India's favored alternative treatment methods, belonging pretty much to traditional Ayurvedic medicine. This is also among the AYUSH for complementary medicine under the Indian government. India also has the country's largest homeopathic drug-makers and traders.

Why it is celebrated:

World Homeopathy Day is not only celebrated to celebrate Dr. Hahnemann's birth. This is also a day for considering the problems and future approaches in order to improve homeopathy better. It aims at increasing awareness about the different medical systems and enhancing accessibility and success rate. The World Homeopathy Day aims to bring together the community to develop, reinvent, and modernize the medicine system so that more people can enjoy its benefits.

Homeopathy is one of India's most common medical systems, indeed a near second among the AYUSH services (Ayurveda, Yoga and Naturopathy, Unani, Siddha, and Homeopathy). Compared with the AYUSH systems in India, there are growing numbers of consumers, practitioners, educational institutes, and public health clinics. The World Homoeopathy Day (WHD) gives us the opportunity to evaluate the road traveled thus far, take stock of the obstacles we face, and formulate future homeopathy growth strategies.
