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.

Clinical trials in Homeopathy. What are we looking for ?

G. Vithoulkas, S. Kivellos International Academy of Classical Homeopathy
One of the main fields of scientific research in Homeopathy, is clinical studies according to the standards of Medical Science. A lot of effort and progress has been done in this field recently. Many clinical studies for homeopathy have been published in homeopathic and mainstream medical journals. Even meta-analysis have been published, in order to be specified if those studies have given clinical results, in favor or against Homeopathy.

Aπάντηση στο δημοσίευμα του περιοδικού "THE LANCET" για την ομοιοπαθητική

Are the clinical effects of homeopathy a placebo effect, an answer to "THE LANCET" editor. Σεπτέμβριος 2005

Τον Αύγουστο του 2005, δημοσιεύτηκε στο Ιατρικό περιοδικό "The Lancet" μία μελέτη που παρουσίαζε την Ομοιοπαθητική αναποτελεσματική. Η μελέτη είχε δεκάδες ανακρίβρειες, κακό σχεδιασμό όσον αφορά στην Ομοιοπαθητική, και συνέκρινε ανόμοια πράγματα, δηλαδή μελέτες κλασσικής ιατρικής και ομοιοπαθητικής. Απο τις δεύτερες, είχαν παραληφθεί όσες είχαν καλύτερα αποτελέσματα.... Παρόλα αυτά παραδέχονταν ότι οι Ομοιοπαθητικές μελέτες είχαν καλύτερο βαθμό αξιοπιστίας.

Comments on BBC-Horizon program on Homeopathy

November 23, 2003

"Το 2003, παρουσιάστηκε από το βρεττανικό τηελοπτικό κανάλι BBC, στο πρόγραμμα Horizon, μία εκπομπή, στην οποία έγινε προσπάθεια να επαναληφθεί ένα πείραμα που αφορούσε την αποκκοκίωση των βασεόφιλων κυττάρων ύστερα από τη χορήγηση δυναμοποιημένων δόσεων του φαρμάκου Apis Melifica. Παρόμοια προσπάθεια παλαιότερα, είχε οδηγήσει τον ερευνητή αλλεργιολόγο Benveniste να xάσει την αξιοπιστία του και να οδηγήσει την επιστημονική κοινότητα σε ένα "ψευδώς αρνητικό" πειραματικό αποτέλεσμα για την Ομοιοπαθητική.
