Creating Waves of Awareness
Very good & usefull explanation..I always try to follow the things.
For understanding the Factors responsible as barriers to the popularity of Homoeopathy, we have to look back in to the History.
Homoeopathy came in to existence, when people were fed up with the Allopathic treatment of their time.In Hahnemann's day, the conventional theory of disease was based on the four humours. Mainstream medicine focused on restoring the balance in the humours, either by attempting to remove an excess (by such methods as bloodletting and purging, laxatives, enemas and nauseous substances that made patients vomit) or by suppressing symptoms, such as by lowering the body temperature of patients who were feverish.
By contrast, Hahnemann promoted an immaterial, vitalistic view of disease, that is, that diseases had spiritual, rather than physical causes.
Vitalism was a part of mainstream science in the 18th century.The masses liked it and consequently,Homoeopathy grew at tremendous pace.
In the twentieth century, medicine discarded vitalism in favour of the germ theory of disease, following the work of Louis Pasteur, Alexander Fleming, Joseph Lister and many others. Modern medicine sees bacteria and viruses as the causes of many diseases, but homeopaths regard them as effects, not causes, of disease. Others have adapted to the views of modern medicine by referring to disturbances in, and stimulation of, the immune system, rather than the vital force.
These were the moments when public once again got attracted towards Allopathy and there was decline of Homeopathy IN USA, Germany and other parts of the world..
The above course of History,tells us that we must propagate among masses, the difference between these two pathies.The advantages of vitalistic thinking of Homoeopathy, and true cure . Today it is media war going on,in favour of Allopathy by big Business lobby..
Nothing shall happen if we don't tell the public thar we are different, our way of thinking is different from Allopathy. But unfortunately, many of the Homoeopaths behave like An Allopath.We have to change our selves.
We have to pursue the Local health authorities , for their contribution, for the better health of the public, by adopting Homoeopathy, as one of the main stream methods of treatment.
We have to creat the awareness about the Homoeopathic way of looking at the diseases, among our patients and the public.
The latest Barrier.
U.P.(India) govt. allow allopaths to prescribe AYUSH medicine.
How an Allopath can prescribe Homoeopathic drugs without knowledge of Homoeopathic principles ? Where are the Rules & regulations?
They will simply take this like allopathy....
