Herzlichen Glückwunsch Samuel! Happy Birthday Sam!

 

Herzlichen Glückwunsch Samuel!

Happy Birthday Sam!

Christian Friedrich  Samuel Hahnemann was born on the 10th of April 1755 in Meissen, Germany. Hahnemann is the founder of Homeopathy.

(He died on the 2nd of July 1843 in Paris, France)

 

Homeopathy is the complementary healthcare approach developed by the Samuel Hahnemann. It differs from conventional medicine as it is holistic. It considers each patient as an individual within his or her own environment. Homeopathy takes into account the symptoms of disease of a patient on the mental, the emotional, and the physical plane. It does not treat a disease label, or the part of the body that appears ill. It aims to heal the root cause of disease.

Homeopathic medicines, referred to as remedies, are ultra-highly diluted. This is a prime tenet of homeopathy. Produced from minute amounts of medicinally valuable substances of herb, mineral and animal origin, the ultra high dilution establishes the medicines effective quality while removing their toxicity. This process is called potentization, and involves serial dilution and succussion. Succussion refers to the rhythmical shaking of the diluted substance at different stages of the production process.

The second main premise of homeopathy is the principle ‘like cures like’. This means that symptoms of illness are treated with a remedy that  if ingested by a healthy person, will give him or her similar symptoms to the illness. For example, slicing onions is likely to cause teary eyes and a runny nose. Following the homeopathic principle, the homeopathic remedy produced from the onion (Allium cepa) is a useful medicine for the symptoms of runny eyes and sniffy nose that are experienced in hay fever. Another good example is Coffee. Like a cup of Coffee can be stimulating and can cause sleeplessness, the homeopathic remedy made from Coffee (Coffea cruda) should be thought of for the treatment of nervous excitement and insomnia.

The worldwide popularity and extensive use of Homeopathy is growing.  Homeopathy is practiced in 40 of 42 European countries, with approximately 100 million people in Europe using homeopathy. The WHO, the World Health Organization, estimates that over 500 million people rely on it worldwide. Next to conventional medicine Homeopathy is the second most used system of medicine in the world.

A call for correction – bias on Wikipedia re. Homeopathy

The information presented on the encyclopedic platform ‘Wikipedia’, on the topic of ‘homeopathic medicine’, is severely biased!

Dana Ullman, evidence based homeopath,  has composed an open letter to Jimmy Wales, the founder of Wikipedia, outlining some of the misinformation contained in the Wikipedia-article on homeopathy, and has provided evidence refuting the same. He demands a rectification of the incorrectly presented details on homeopathy. The letter was also signed by other experts in the field of homeopathy, complementary medicine, health and medicine.

Dana Ullmans letter has been published, dated 10th October 2014 at:
