The rise and rise of Homeopathy

Over the last 220 years, homeopathic users have grown in numbers substantially and homeopathy now represents the leading medical alternative to drug-based medicine in Europe, and in significant parts of Asia (especially India and Pakistan). Although many people use homeopathy alongside conventional, allopathic treatment, over 100 million people in India depend solely on this form of medical care.

With this in mind it is interesting to note that the American health care which has been so resistant to homeopathic and natural therapies in its mainstream institutions is presently ranked 37th in the world in the performance of its health care system. 

In comparison, the number one ranked country in the world is France, a country in which around 40 percent of the population uses homeopathic medicines and around 30 percent of its family physicians prescribe them.

Whilst we mere mortals have gradually become aware of the healing powers of homeopathy, many cultural icons of the past few centuries have long been advocates of this form of treatment. These include eleven U.S. Presidents, six popes, Charles Darwin, Mother Teresa and Mahatma Gandhi as well as monarchs from almost all European countries.

This article was first published by the ARH in the September 2010 issue of 'Homeopathy Healthy Medicine'
