Homoeopathy is centered on criticism from
the days of discovery, despite of many struggles faced by the
father of Homoeopathy, served with great popularity for the
past 234 years. The “Law of Infinitesimals” and
clinical efficacy has been challenged by the scientific community.
The Popularity of futuristic medicine naturally invites arguments
and challenges, as it has entered the mainstreams and being
practiced as the second largest Medical system in the world.
Similimum and Dynamism
The strong foundation of Homoeopathy has
been laid on two prime doctrines, the application of similimum
and the theory of dynamism. Administration of similar medicines
on the basis of similar symptoms is well accepted by the modern
scientific community. The application of a similimum from the
Hippocrates, Paracelsus and today modern scientists inspire
the wonderful heeling power to build immunity in an individual.
The scientific confrontation is missing on basic theory, because
the isopathic application of vaccination theory would have inspired
the reality of similimum application to arouse immunity in a
particular living being.
The genius of Homoeopathy lies in the theory
of Dynamism. The reality of cure lies in “Potentisation”.
The modern community failed to understand that potentisation
brings the inert diseases healing power from the medicinal substances.
They misinterpret “Potentisation” as “serial
dilution” to reduce toxicity and ultimatetly beyond the
Avogadro number losses its therapeutic effect also.
The scientific perspective on the preparation
of Anti snake venom to treat snake bite and the stimulation
of micro doses as stated by Arndt-Schultz law would lay some
primary understanding on Potentisation.
The confronters acclaim that the potentised
medicines which prepared below the Avogadro number would work.
Then it is clear to them that the Homoeopathic Medicines are
dispensed as mother tinctures, triturations and lower attenuations
which fall within Avogadro number, the higher attenuations had
been focused on the axioms of biology, chemistry and physics
stating that placebo and the cures had been described as witchcraft
The theory of Dynamism cannot be demonstrated
by scientific parameters. The action is well experienced by
many patients when they lost their hope with other systems of
Medicine. Homoeopathy is a holistic medicine which entails the
soul, body and mind. The dynamic principle and vital principle
are accepted by all alternative systems.
We know that science is ever changing with
new discoveries and inventions. The notion on “earth was
flat” has been clarified as to round, the discovery of
atom enters nanotechnology, and discovery of cells had been
penetrated to genes. Even though water memory theory and NMR
theory has been neglected by the scientific community. Research
studies on immunology also geared up and the days are nearing
to prove the efficacy of Homoeopathy with their own perspectives.

scientific measurement. Hahnemann understood correctly that
the non materialistic, disease producing power inside the body
as “dynamic”. If the modern scientific community
looks deeper into the terms “immune” “metabolic”
and genetic development of diseases the meaning of the word
dynamism will be well understood.

Hahnemann the pioneer scientist
understood and cleared firmly that dynamic disease could be
eradicated by dynamic medicines only based on similimum application.
He contributed the wonderful theory “The Theory of Chronic
Diseases” which could inspire everyone to treat the diseases
labeled incurable by the modern community. Many homoeopaths
are successful in treating the immune, metabolic and genetic
based diseases and its sequelae; proliferative and degenerative
Scientific Evidences and Homoeopathy
We know that the Modus operandi of Homoeopathic
Medicines based dynamic acts on the dynamic diseases, revitalizing
the vital principle. Even though it cannot be measured by scientific
parameters, there are several theories which are based on sub
atomic vibration, the memory of water and so on, but these remain
theories. Research has been conducted which attempts to prove
or disprove these theories.
The conclusions drawn from such research
occasionally step well beyond the evidence are flawed. Even
though there is no quality studies satisfied the scientific
community they proclaim as placebo effect.

Clinical Trials and Homoeopathy
Clinical trials on Homoeopathy on various
diseases has been conducted and published in various Journals.
The studies based on “One drug to suit all” and
Double blind placebo trials also not suitable to homoeopathic
efficacy because Homoeopathic treatment is highly individualized.
In reality Homoeopathy would seek Randomized controlled studies
(RCT) in which remedies individually tailored to a patient

Evidence based clinical studies
Clinically evidence based case studies on
immunological, metabolic, genetic, proliferative and degenerative
studies are available to illustrate the dynamic cures. These
individual studies could contribute to a randomized study in
a particular disease. The study would emphasize the world; ultra
dilutions would cure the disease which were labeled as untreatable
and incurable by the other systems of medicine
The modern era seeks scientificity, so we
are more fervent to invite evidence based case studies which
could inspire the wonderful art of healing. Even though our
system is based on symptom similarity, we are in a position
to diagnose the disease and undergo necessary investigations,
imaging studies for the prognostic purpose and reciprocally
to arouse the world with amazing results. These evidence based
studies would make our system as a pool proof system.
