History

 

Hippocrates

 

The roots of homeopathy can be traced back to the Greek scientist Hippocrates

 

 

(460 BC - 375 BC) who is traditionally considered to be the father of medicine. He declared that everything is dynamic, that the body's well-being cannot be separated from the health of the soul and that the body and the psyche affect each other.

 

The Swiss doctor Paracelsus

 

 

(1493 AD - 1541 AD), one of the greatest doctors and alchemists of his time, had the homeopathic belief that, with the right help, an organism can cure itself.

 

Hahnemann

 

The true originator of classic homeopathy was the German Christian Samuel Friedrich Hahnemann

 

(1755 AD - 1843 AD).

 

As a recognized doctor, chemist and author, he translated medical books from Greek, Arabic, Latin, French, Hebrew and English into German. As he was dissatisfied with some of the methods of treatment employed at that time, he preferred to work as a translator even though a doctor's salary was much higher.

 

In 1790 he translated a Materia Medica by Willam Cullen on, among other things, cinchona bark as a medicine in treating malaria. It is stated that due to a stomach complaint he carried out a test on himself. He found out that a preparation that in large doses develops symptoms in a healthy person, in smaller doses is capable of removing or improving a similar symptom in a sick person. "Similia similibus curentur" - like cures like. That became homeopathy's maxim and with it homeopathy was born. All of Hahnemann's remedy tests were carried out on himself, his family and his friends before being used on patients.

 

One of the greatest homeopaths in Hahnemann's lifetime was the German doctor Constantin Hering

 

 

 

(1800 AD - 1880AD). As a doctor, he arrived at homeopathy because an anti-Hahnemann medic gave him the task of proving homeopathy worthless. After a successful homeopathic treatment of a serious infection of a leg wound however, he changed his persuasion. He ceased practising as a doctor and contributed immeasurably to homeopathy and consequently brought homeopathy to America.

 

 

                  Adolph Lippe (1812-1888)

 

 

Born in Germany, from an aristocratic family, he went to America in 1838, and became the probably most successful clinical physician in homeopathy of all time.

 

Beside him worth to mention are, among others:

 

                  Caroll Dunham (1828-1877)

 

In spite of his short life, he became one of the great masters of homeopathy

 

         Henry Newell Guernsey (1817-1885)

 

 

He was also one of the most important homeopath of his time, especially in the area of gynaecology.

 

 

 

One of the absolutely greatest homoepaths of our time is

 

                           Andre Saine (1953-)

 

 

        

 

 

From Canada.

He went back to the roots, to the old masters and rediscovered lost knowledge which he now makes available to homeopaths. His extensive knowledge of history and philosophy of homeopathy, material medica, clinical experience, dedication, his ability to observe and his great understanding makes him a true master in the field and a milestone in homeopathy from today.

.

Since Hahnemann' time, homeopathy has grown to be the most used form of treatment after traditional medicine in countries like Australia, New Zealand, Canada, Czech Republic, France, UK ( not least because of the Royal Family's use of homeopathy), Greece, Hungary, Israel, USA, Germany (homeopathy's native country), and Latin America. No country has more homeopaths than India, where 500,000 homeopaths enjoy the same status as conventional doctors.
