Dr. Samuel Hahnemann (1755-1843) a German physician, who dissatisfied with his Allopathic practice founded Homoeopathy. Dr. Hahnemann is regarded as the Founder of Homeopathy. He established the fundamental principles of Homeopathy. Besides the prime principle of “Similia similibus curentur” i.e. let likes be treated by likes, under Homeopathy, we base our science and treatment on following principles-
“Health is a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity”.
“In the healthy condition of man , the spiritual vital force(autpcracy), the dynamis that animates the material body(organism), rules with unbounded sway and retains all the parts of the organism in admirable, harmonious, vital operations, as regards both sensations and functions, so that our indwelling, reason gifted mind can freely employ this living, healthy instrument for higher purposes of our existence.”
