This article talks about how both homeopathy and allopathy are totally different science.

Difference Between Homeopathy and Allopathy

I want to explain the difference between allopathy and homeopathy.

There are many people who think that like allopathy, homeopathy is specific for some disease but it is not true. Homeopathic treatment depends on the case taking in which disease diagnosis has comparatively less importance than the individuality of the person.

So, a well-taken case history is very necessary for homeopathy, but yes, there are so many homeopaths who themselves are treating it like allopathy but both the pathies have different principles, rules, and outcomes.

I am not here to criticise allopathy but just clearing the difference that both have their own role for the well being of patients. But, if you are taking homeopathy, you should know the basic concept of homeopathy so that no one can fool. There are many people who prefer to self-medicate with the help of internet or books and also suggest their medicines to others like they are some home remedies but this is not the proper way.

So, you have to understand that homeopathy is totally different from other fields of medicine like allopathy, ayurveda, unani, etc.

Yes, every field is different and homeopathy is a complete science in itself. The major difference in homeopathy is that there is no need for a "material dose". One of the fundamental principles is the "law of minimum" which means there is no need to take a bag full of medicines your whole life.

You just need the correctly chosen medicine after a well-taken case history with minimum dose and in simplest form.

I know it is hard to believe, but yes this is the truth. There are so many examples of successful treatment which are not less than any miracle by itself. Many long-standing chronic diseases of many years have been treated with a single dose.
