Homoeopathy is the the second largest system of medicine
Homoeopathy -the second largest system of medicine utilized by the world population, as estimated by WHO has completed 220 years of its inception.. It is a legalized medical system in 42 countries including India and enjoys the status of Complementary and Alternative Medicine (CAM) in 28 countries. It is still spreading to greater number of nations in the world. The prime reason for this fast spreading acceptance of homoeopathy can be reasonably attributed to its being “safe, simple, scientific, economic and effective medicine for all”.
Though its origin can be traced to Germany and to Dr. Samuel Hahnemann, its growth and development in India is remarkable. It is now 150 years since it took roots in India. But it got the deserving recognition as a system of medicine only after the dawn of independence. Within this short span of time it has been able to compete with modern medicine which has got world patronage and Ayurveda -the traditionally accepted system. Today India has become the “Super Power of Homoeopathy” in the World.
