Homoeopathy is a most complete and scientific system of healing art and it is conspicuous for its cheapness of price, sweetness of taste and quickness of action. It is a dear friend of children who have a natural aversion to bitter mixtures of the allopathic drugs. For 150 years Homoeopathy has served mankind in all parts of the world bringing hope where hope almost ceased to exist, showing light where eternal darkness seemed to descend.
Time and time again it has saved human life when orthodox medicine paled in the dreadful presence of Death. It kindled the light of hope where orthodox medicine brought the gloom of despair. It has raised many a drooping heart which was sinking deep into despair. It has often changed the tears of grief into tears of joy.
Words fail to describe the good that it is doing and it has done to its believers. He who understands it, takes it for a blessing of God. The wonderful charm of the smallest dose of a single remedy has won for it many adherents in every country. The day is not far distant when it will occupy its proper place of honour in the society of medical men of the world. It has power to crush opposition and overcome superstition and conservatism. Glorification of Homoeopathy is not far off.
It is thoroughly good system of medicine and its materia medica contains over 1000 remedies which were accepted only after careful proving on human system under the observation of the ablest men. These medicines are of established usefulness and they, unlike orthodox medicine which are usually experimented on animals, do not change but are true in all ages and under all circumstances.
The power of these drugs is beyond the comprehension of the non-believers. To a believer they simply unfold the atomic force of matter. Homoeopathic potencies are Atom Bombs in medicine designed for the annihilation of disease force. The theory of atom was put into action first by Hahnemann and he engaged this boundless power not for the destruction of human life but for healing the sick.
Fully qualified medical men and women practise Homoeopathy all over the world. School and college teachers practise it with great efficiency although they were never trained in medical colleges. Office clerks and pleaders often handle it with wonderful results. There are thousands of Homoeopaths who never received medical training but they employ these agents with excellent skill. Homoeopathy is now-a-days known to all classes of people, to the rich and the poor. to the educated and the uneducated, to the ploughman as well as to the boatman.
People in England, France, Germany, America, India and everywhere want to be treated with Homoeopathic drugs and their persistent demand for Homoeopathic drugs gives positive proof of superiority of Homoeopathic drugs to all other branches of medicine. It is a mighty force, nothing can check its onward march, it will overcome all opposition. Allopathic drugs, when misused, are deadly instruments of death and suffering. Moreover they are so costly that poor people can hardly purchase these drugs.
It is a common sight in India that poor men, when they are forced to use allopathic medicines, sell their ornaments and utensils to meet the doctors fee and cost of medicine. But Homoeopathic medicines have none of these drawbacks. They are so cheap and so harmless. If Homoeopathy receives governmental recognition it will remove, much of the economic distress of the people.
That Homoeopathy is a popular form of treatment is evident from the unusually large number of Homoeopathic doctors practising everywhere on earth. In Bengal alone we have not less than 25000 Homoeopathic physicians of all qualities. About 50 percent of them come from our Homoeopathic colleges, about 5 percent of them come from the allopathic colleges and the rest practise Homoeopathic medicine without any college qualification. Many of the unqualified Homoeopaths have topped the list of the most successful Homoeopaths of Bengal, Dinu Babu of Howrah, Chunni Lall Chatterjee B.A. of Utarpara,
