Every year on April 10th, World Homeopathy Day is commemorated to celebrate homoeopathy and its contributions to medicine. The day is observed to commemorate the birth anniversary of German physician Dr Christian Friedrich Samuel Hahnemann, considered the father of homoeopathy. Born on 10 April 1755, he was a well-known physicist, linguist, and academic. He discovered Homeopathy’s technique for curing the illness. On July 2, 1843, he passed away.
What is Homeopathy
Homeopathy or Homoeopathy is a pseudoscientific alternative of allopathy medicine, conceived in 1766 by Dr Samuel Hahnemann. In the 19th century, homeopathy became most common. The first homeopathic school opened in 1835, when it was introduced to the United States in 1825. Hundreds of homeopathic institutions sprang up in Europe and the United States during the nineteenth century. Homeopathy was able to be reasonably beneficial during this period when most modes of therapy may be dangerous and unsuccessful. By the end of the century, the profession started to diminish, with America closing in 1920 the last purely homeopathic medical school.
