The word ‘ Homeopathy ‘ is derived from two Greek words, ‘Homeos’ means ‘similar’ and ‘Pathos’ means ‘suffering’. It is based on the natural law of healing "Similia Similibus Curantur" which means "likes are cured by likes". Dr. Samuel Hahnemann (1755 - 1843) gave it a scientific basis in the early 19th century.

Homeopathy is an ideal and gentle therapeutic method which gives rapidly permanent restoration of the health by removing and annihilating the disease in its whole extent in the most harmless way.

Homeopathy is a system of medicine in which medicine is chosen based on individual peculiarities of the patient. The medicine is not selected based on disease only or diagnosis.

Homeopaths consider the totality of symptoms or sum total of all symptoms in an individual with physical and mental constitution of the patient to reach a medicine, which has properties similar to that of the symptom total in the patient or similimum.

Homeopathic system is based on the natural principle of cure without producing any adverse effects. The selection of remedy is based upon the theory of individualization and symptom similarity by using a holistic approach. This is the only way through which a state of complete health can be regained by removing all the signs and symptoms from which the patient is suffering. The aim of Homeopathy is not only to treat disease but to address its underlying cause and individual susceptibility.

Homeopathy seeks to relieve the individual as much as possible from the heavy burden of the hereditary tendencies he carries, and to guard against increasing their load by enabling his vital energy to provide its own immunity against disease.

Homeopathy is based on the fact that the person's emotional and mental ( state of mind ) life experience cannot be isolated from their physical bodily complaints. Physical illness can lead to anxiety or emotional uneasiness. Similarly, the opposite is also true nowadays most illnesses have their roots on the mental plane. Mental troubles often come first which leads to physical illness, and usually treated. Now we have started to learn that, prolonged emotional stress (too much desire, anger, greed, pride, jealousy, suspicion, etc. ) can lead to upset stomach, difficulty digesting food, poor nutrient absorption, sleeplessness, weaken immune system, etc. the emotional state closely relates to endocrine glands and nerves, which influence over the working of the physical body. Thus, homeopathy medicine is psycho - somatic medicine and is excellent for psycho - somatic diseases such as migraine, asthma, peptic ulcer, allergy, ulcerative colitis etc.

Homeopathic remedies are prescribed by symptoms rather than conditions, as each case of particular illness can manifest differently in different people. The sickness of the person expresses itself at his various levels, and to bring all such expressions together to get a whole picture, requires a clear understanding of what Hahnemann stated: - what is to be cured in a disease, that is to say in every individual case of disease.

We all have our way of thinking, reflexes, emotions, expressions, built, desires, aversion, likes, dislikes, hobbies, thermal reaction; patterns of sweating, salivation, sleep, dreams, susceptibility to various external influences and diseases etc. so, these and few other traits help to create our individuality. Homeopathy recognizes the individuality of each drug and substance in nature.

Its method of testing or proving drugs upon the healthy human beings is designed and used for the purpose of bringing out the individuality of each drug so that its full power and relations are established. During homeopathic drug proving, the effect of a drug is closely studied on all parts of the body and in a large number of people and that gives us the full range of action of the medicine.

Homeopathy as a scientific system of therapeutics is based on identifying the individual as an entity and selecting the similium according to his characteristics. In homeopathy each individual is considered as a distinct entity with certain characteristics of his own and based on these characteristics we choose an identical medicinal picture. Sometimes, we come through remedies which seem to have a similar profile but on close observation we recognize the subtle difference which gives both a distinct identity. Thus we see that individualization is one of the basic tenets of Homeopathy.

Homeopathy believes that each individual be he of any race, nationality, creed or background has some characteristics features which differentiate him from all other of his own kind even two twins with same environmental and genetic background have some features which differentiates them. You must have seen that in the same family too every individual responds differently to the same situation, a drench in rain may cause backache in one, fever in another and headache in the third. Why is it so ? It is because each of us has a different constitution, an all together different individuality. Every person reacts to any external agent according to his / her individuality.

The entire examination of a patient is conducted with a view to discovering not only the general or common features of the case by which it may be classified diagnostically and pathologically, but the special and particular symptoms which differentiate the case from others of the same general class.

It recognizes the fact that no two cases or patients, even with the same disease, are exactly alike, and maintains that a true science of therapeutics must enable the practitioner to recognize these differences and find the needed remedy for each individual. To use a frequently quoted" Homeopathy does not treat disease, it treats patients". Homeopathy is also very effective in treating animals. We can use these medicines safely on our pet dogs, cats with marvelous results.
