Dr. Samuel Hahnemann

Dr. Samuel F. Hahnemann, a German scientist, developed the homoeopathic medical system and brought it to the globe between 1793 and 1796. This year marks the homoeopathic profession's bicentennial. Dr. Hahnemann's birth anniversary is recognised as World Homeopathy Day on April 10th.

Hahnemann continued the work of the Viennese physician Anton von Störck by examining the effects of various chemicals on a healthy person, presuming (as von Störck had asserted) that they might treat the same ailments that they had caused. The results of his studies led him to concur with von Störck that the toxic effects of ingested substances are frequently broadly analogous to certain disease states, and his examination of historical poisoning cases in the medical literature further implied a more generalised medicinal "law of similars." Later, in order to lessen the hazardous effects of the medications he was testing, he developed techniques for diluting them.

Drug Testing on People: Hahnemann worked on a project where he looked into how different medicines affected people. He experimented with these medications on both himself and his students, carefully noting each consequence. Before Hahnemann, this kind of work had never been attempted. In order for more than 90 medications to be employed in his new medical system, he meticulously examined and demonstrated their efficacy. Instead of using animals, the full drug-proving process was carried out on healthy humans. GENIUS, LIKE ANY OTHER: He was providing incredible outcomes while treating hundreds of individuals.
