WORLD HOMEOPATHY DAY 2022: April 10 is observed as World Homeopathy Day across the globe. The day highlights the importance of a field of medicine and its ability in eradicating some of the tough-nut-to-crack ailments. The day is also celebrated to commemorate the birth anniversary of Dr Christian Friedrich Samuel Hahnemann. Hahnemann, born in Paris in 1755, founded this branch of medicine and is considered the father of Homeopathy.
Hahnemann, after being dissatisfied with the state of medicine during his time, decided to let go of his practice. According to him, the medicine he practiced did more harm to the patient than good. As a result, Hahnemann, after years of research, laid down the foundation of the doctrine called ‘Similia Similibus Curentur,’or ‘like cures like.’ And thus, Homeopathy was born.

The day, observed on the birth anniversary of the father of Homeopathy, is aimed at raising awareness among people about the benefits of what is touted as the pseudoscientific system of alternative medicine.
