Origins of Homeopathy


All this modern material ties in very neatly with the main concerns that Hahnemann immersed himself in two centuries ago. 
What Hahnemann was primarily appalled and disgusted by and which he most vigorously and passionately opposed were strong doses of drugs, bloodletting and compound drug mixtures conceived and employed along the Galenic lines of contraries. 
These were the biggest objections he made against the medicine of his day. 
He was implacably opposed to them because he could see from first-hand daily experience that they were dismally ineffective measures to be employed against sickness, and they were also harmful and damaging to patients as well; they caused more suffering. 
Thus, he stood alone in having the courage and intellectual honesty to abandon in disgust such a medical practice, and to commit himself instead to a search for more gentle, benign and effective therapeutic measures.  Who could possibly stand up and condemn him for doing that?

COVID-19: We Will Win the Marathon

Over the past few months we all have been living in an uncertain time brought to us by the ‘severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2’ (SARS-CoV-2). SARS-CoV-2, which was previously known as the 2019 novel coronavirus, is a member of a broader family of coronaviruses (CoV) that cause a range of illnesses, from the common cold to more severe diseases including Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS-CoV) and Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS-CoV) . As we all know, signs and symptoms of COVID-19 vary greatly from mild respiratory symptoms, fever and cough, to more severe symptoms such as shortness of breath and breathing difficulties.

It appears to have the most severe effect on the elderly and people with existing medical conditions – particularly those with respiratory problems. Given that there are no scientific trials availabl
