Homeopathy was formally propounded and systematized as a new medical system by German physician Dr.Christian Friedrich Samuel Hahnemann in the year 1796.
Homeopathy is a scientific therapeutic method based on the fixed law that is SIMILIA SIMILIBUS CURENTUR which means “Let like be cured by likes“. The word Homeopathy is derived from the Greek word HOMOIOS which means SIMILAR and PATHOS which means SUFFERING.

- Homeopathy medicine directs and stimulates the body’s self-regulatory mechanism to restore its natural equilibrium.
