History of Homeopathy

‘Disease is born of like things, and by the attack of like things people are healed’ – Hippocrates

These principles were re-discovered over 200 years ago by German physician Samuel Hahnemann (1755-1843), who developed them into the science that he called Homeopathy.

Homeopathy is a two-hundred-year-old specific, scientific health care system based on the law of “Similia Similibus Curantur” that stresses fortifying the innate defense capabilities of the self in overpowering and overcoming disease.

Homeopathy views dis’-ease as an expression of the body’s struggling healing power that is manifested as a ‘symptom’ and is an expression of the organism’s effort to heal itself.

Homeopathy derives from the Greek word Homeos, meaning similar, and Pathos means suffering.

Homeopathy gently yet swiftly stimulates the vital force that permeates all living things to bring back order. It enhances your level of health. Thus not only does your current condition disappear, you feel positively healthy. An individualized medicine, Homeopathy is effective in both acute and chronic diseases.

Homeopathy was introduced to North America in 1826 and quickly gained popularity in Canada and the United States.

On January 1890, the Toronto Homeopathic Hospital opened, and in 1902  the name changed to Grace Hospital. On March 25th, 1926, it merged with Toronto Western Hospital and lost its homeopathic status. Regulated Homeopathy was in Upper Canada from 1859 to 1970, where one out of every six physicians was a homeopath.

Homeopathy is safe, gentle, and complementary to all other therapies. It is the world’s second most widely used system of medicine and is available in most countries.
