Ludhiana, April 8
On the birth anniversary of Dr Samuel Hahnemann, Predictive Homoeopathy, an academy of charities, research and education in homoeopathy, will organise a two-day scientific workshop from April 10 at Community Centre, near Snait village.

Dr Surmeet Singh Mavi, organiser, Predictive Homoeopathy, said at a press conference here yesterday that homoeopathic system of medicine was found in 18th century by Dr Hahnemann.

He said, “In the beginning no body bothered to take it seriously that one man with his sheer brilliance could develop such a vast science with so accuracy that it would stand the test of time. But even after more than two centuries its efficacy cannot be denied”.

Dr Mavi said homoeopathy was a holistic science. The ‘holistic’ conception was absolutely necessary to understand the living phenomenon of any being. The word ‘whole’, was used in technical sense to mean something, which was more than sum of its parts. A whole was to be distinguished from an aggregate. A machine was an aggregate. It was the assembly of its parts, the arithmetical sum total of all cranks and nuts and screws, which it may be found to contain.

In medicine, according to Dr Hahnemann, man was to be studied from an organism standpoint and not from that of 

The allopathic school of medicine was in a fix to reconcile its specialist knowledge with that of general practitioner but Dr Hahnemann solved this problem by his discovery of a method where patient and remedy were both studied as a whole and by the discovery of therapeutic law whereby a particular drug was administered to a particular sick individual from this holistic stand point.

In homoeopathy, it was the man or the patient, which was to be cured and not the disease, said Dr Mavi.

He further said homoeopathic prescription was based on personality, peculiarity and generality of the patient as an individual.

The patents, combination and multiple drug prescriptions (based on disease diagnosis) have no place in homoeopathy.
