     If I asked around what is HOMEOPATHY, the majority would probably say something along the lines like: "A homeopath gives you a small sugar pill which contains almost nothing and that is supposed to cure all your problems."

    In the age of technology penetrating every single branch of modern biomedical science, more and more complex diagnostic and treatment procedures being used and more and more effective medications being introduced daily, an idea that one small pill can take care of asthma, eczema, ulcer, PMS, depression, seizures with no side – effects, no painful procedures, no allergies sounds very strange. Sounds unreal.

    HOMEOPATHY seems to have no scientific background. One of the critics wrote:

    " [Homeopathic] so-called remedies don't work. They are the equivalent of a car with no engine or a phony stock certificate. Yet they are marketed for everything from colds to cancer."

    "A car with no engine." Is that so?

    Why than an increasing number of patients seem to seek out homeopathic treatment? In the United States and Europe, the sale of homeopathic medicines was reported to increase by 20% to 30% per year for the past 20 years. In Europe, because of the public's interest in homeopathy, the European Parliament mandated the European Commission to examine whether homeopathy is beneficial. Based on the report of the Homeopathy Medicine Research Group, it was recommended that homeopathy be integrated into medical practice. In January 1998, the French Conseil National de l'Ordre des Médecins (the equivalent of the American Medical Association) recommended the official recognition of homeopathy, with the inclusion of homeopathy training in the undergraduate medical curriculum and the creation of a postgraduate degree. Coincidentally, a British Commission formed by the Prince of Wales to examine the possible integration of complementary health into conventional biomedical practice called for education and training in various complementary and alternative disciplines, including homeopathy with the consequent integration into mainstream health care.

    A famous violinist Yehudy Menuhin (who was the President of the Hahnemann society in Great Britain at the time) once said: "Homeopathy is one of the rare medical approaches which carries no penalties – only benefits." Many famous people have used homeopathy successfully: The Royal Family of Great Britain, Mahatma Gandhi, Mother Theresa, Mark Twain, Tina Turner, John D. Rockefeller, Sr., just to name a few.

    In England, Australia, New Zealand, India, Russia, Brazil and many other countries homeopathy is recognized as a valid mode of treatment.

    In the United Kingdom, around 42 percent of physicians refer patients to homeopathic practitioners, and homeopathic training is the most popular post-graduate training program. In France, approximately 36 percent of the public and 32 percent of the physicians use homeopathic remedies. Moscow, Russia, has a homeopathic hospital with a large homeopathic outpatient clinic and many homeopathic pharmacies with many people using various homeopathic preparations daily.

    India has approximately 125 four- and five-year homeopathic medical colleges with over 100,000 homeopathic doctors practicing around the country.

    I hope this small brochure will clarify who can benefit from HOMEOPATHY, how it is practiced and what, after all, it is.
