Samuel Hahnemann

He created the basic principles of homeopathy. The word homeopathy comes from the Greek hómoios- ὅμοιος- "like-" + páthos πάθος "suffering".

Hippocrates of Kos

Hippocrates (Kos 460 BC - Larissa 377 BC) was an ancient Greek physician and is referred to as the father of Western medicine in recognition of his lasting contributions to the field as the founder of the Hippocratic School of Medicine. Hippocrates is credited with being the first person to believe that diseases were caused naturally, not because of superstition and gods. He separated the discipline of medicine from religion, believing and arguing that disease was not a punishment inflicted by the gods but rather the product of environmental factors, diet, and living habits.

 
 

 

Hippocrates of Kos

Hippocrates is not only the father of Western medicine, but also a philosopher and a humanist.

Samuel Hahnemann

Christian Friedrich Samuel Hahnemann (10 April 1755 – 2 July 1843) was a German physician, best known for creating the system of alternative medicine called homeopathy.
His research led him to the principle of homeopathy, similia similibus curentur ("like cures like"), according to which a substance that causes the symptoms of a disease in healthy people will cure that disease in sick people.
He first published an article about the homeopathic approach in a German-language medical journal in 1796.

 
 

 

Let us ponder some key questions, beginning from a zero base:

Is there any chance that the planet's energy resources might not suffice for the well-being of its inhabitants, were they to be fairly distributed?

Is there any chance that we might be unable to meet the nutritional needs of the earth's inhabitants, were the primary sources of food to be exploited in a reasonable manner?

The mere mention of the word "menopause" makes most women feel the unrelenting passage of time, knocking on their door. Menopause in a woman's life is traditionally equated to the end of her youth. But is it really so? Can the hormonal and other changes that undoubtedly occur at that time, stifle the productivity and creativity that a youth-filled spirit may possess at any age? Knowledge and the appropriate handling of the woman's symptoms are what make the difference.

In recent years, in endocrinology practices across the country there is a large increase in patients suffering from thyroid disorders (“thyroidopathies”). (1) The thyroid gland is one of the most important glands of our endocrine system and its dysfunction can lead to many disorders that can in turn precipitate other diseases.

 

A large percentage of patients that present to homeopathic practices throughout the country are children and infants. More and more parents entrust the medical prevention and treatment of their children with Homeopathy, and most of them are referred by other parents who have already seen the beneficial effect of this wondrous therapeutic approach on their own children.

Stress: possibly the most widely-used word by the population nowadays.

It is a widely acknowledged principle that whenever we attempt one-sided explanations for something, we invariably fail to reach the truth. Was the child’s infection caused by a virus? Was it caused by the child’s body allowing the virus to replicate? Or was it caused by the emotionally trying times that preceded the infection? Perhaps it was caused by the child’s family environment, that failed to teach him/her how to handle his/her emotions?

To every woman, pregnancy represents a special and unique experience. An experience that, before it has been lived, has already been painted with many different shades of emotion such as expectation, doubt, worry and perseverance. As soon as conception has been verified, the emotional centre of gravity is displaced toward the care and the wish that the pregnancy will run a normal course for the mother as well as the baby.

Male infertility is rapidly increasing, particularly in the Western world. It is estimated that in 40-50% of infertile couples, the problem lies with the man and, specifically, with sperm quantity and quality. (1) (2) (3)

In pediatric practices, it is becoming more and more common for children to be given a diagnosis of “allergy”. Such a diagnosis usually fills parents with anxiety as most tend to think of allergies as chronic, hard-to-treat health disorders that require a combination of therapeutic interventions.

We have recently presented an observational study concerning homeopathy and migraine at the 8th Headache Congress of European Headache Federation, as following:

METHODS. Forty-two patients who attended the clinic while one of the authors was available were assigned to receive homeopathic treatment, according to the principles recommended by the I.A.C.H. and G.Vithoulkas. Additional evaluation by a neurologist was performed at baseline, 6 and 12 months. Primary and secondary measures of migraine severity and impact on quality of life were recorded and analyzed.
