Homoeopathy, as a science of medicine is a stimulation therapy, which supports natural regenerative healing power of an organism, by enhancing body's 'Vital Force' or 'Auto-regulatory Power'. Meaning, the science of medicine intelligently act in the same way as our system's defense reactions. They stimulate the natural defences of the body in order to make them more effective and thus, work with the body rather than against it. This is the reason why, in homoeopathy, only infinitesimal doses are needed. It was after years of experimenting that Samuel Hahnemann, founder of the homeopathic method, came to the following conclusion: "In order to bring about prompt, gentle, and lasting improvement, you most often need to use infinitesimal doses."

Homoeopathy Works on Three Premises:

Any biologically active substance can cause a set of symptoms to appear in a healthy person. These symptopms are "characteristics of the substance" used.

Anyone suffering from a particular disease shows a set of symptoms which is "characteristic of the disease". These pathological symptoms can be defined as being "changes in the way the person feels or behaves."

Homoeopathy Vs Homeopathy?

Hahnemann, the founder of Homoeopathy was also a linguist and he thoughtfully chose the name of our new system of medicine. The word Homoeopathy, comes from the Greek "homeois" meaning similar or like. The word is united with "pathos", meaning suffering, and bringing them together means "similar suffering". In Latin language the word "homo" means "man" and the word "path" is "the way". So, the word Homoeopathy may contain energies, which correctly represents our science of new medicine.

The word first appeared in Hahnemann's essay, "Indications of the Homoeopathic Employment in Medicine in Ordinary Practice". Hahnemann himself was quite sensitive about the spelling and he said in a Note Bene in the second volume of Materia Medica Pura and in Lesser Writings that, "the omission of the dipthong [œ] makes the root of the word mean not similar". "Are they all labouring under the same malady or stupidity"? "Should not anyone who ventures to step forward as a critic of the 'spirit of the homoeopathic doctrine' have to begin with at least some idea of the meaning of the word Homoeopathy." So in good spirits of Hahnemann's ideology and Homoeopathy as a science of medicine, 20 years from now, Dr. Raj Homoeo Pharmacy decided to have dipthong [œ] in its name respecting the meaning in the name of our science of medicine.

Are your products safe to take while pregnant?

Where can I find clinical trials?

Each homoeopathic ingredient is based on sophisticated and exhaustive clinical trials called "proving," which are scientific research procedures that have been conducted for more than 200 years. Homeopathic physicians were the first doctors to ever conduct double-blind, placebo-controlled experiments, and they established the first medical association in the United States. At the turn of the twentieth century, there were 22 homeopathic medical schools and 100 homeopathic hospitals in the U.S. treating thousands of patients. There are still many homeopathic hospitals in Europe, and homeopathic medicine is now covered by the Swiss national health plan. This ruling happened in 2006 after the Swiss government conducted an extensive, multi-year study, which concluded that homeopathic medicine is extremely cost-effective and safe.

The FDA recognizes the Homeopathic Pharmacopoeia of the United States (HPUS**), which includes the list of about 1,300 ingredients allowable for use. Hundreds of modern homeopathic research studies and clinical trials exist.
