Besides the Homoeopathic physicians, the Homoeopathic chemists, manufacturing or dispensing, are responsible for the rise or fall of Homoeopathy, as the purity of drug is indispensably necessary for the therapeutic success. These persons should remember that on their honesty and integrity depend the life of dying patients and also the future of Homoeopathy. Unfortunately the the present generation of Homoeopathic chemists do not deserve our praise.


MODERN HOMOEOPATHY.

I beg to repeat with emphasis that the spread of Homoeopathy will always depend very largely on the sincerity and honesty of studious physicians who constantly enrich their knowledge and familiarize themselves with the vast resources of Homoeopathic literature which is as limitless as the ocean. But it is extremely painful to observe that the modern Homoeopaths are not real well-wishers of Homoeopathy and they seem to ignore the absolute need of laborious study of Homoeopathic literature for the successful application of our remedies.

Indeed one hardly realizes the great necessity of intense study of Materia Medica and organon without which therapeutic failures are inevitable. This tendency of neglecting the study of Materia Medica and Organon is a powerful danger to Homoeopathy. This is the only reason why a large number of most useful Homoeopathic books are out of print.

Besides the Homoeopathic physicians, the Homoeopathic chemists, manufacturing or dispensing, are responsible for the rise or fall of Homoeopathy, as the purity of drug is indispensably necessary for the therapeutic success. These persons should remember that on their honesty and integrity depend the life of dying patients and also the future of Homoeopathy. Unfortunately the the present generation of Homoeopathic chemists do not deserve our praise.

Some of the well-established firms have lost their old reputation and many new and unorganized firms are flooding the market with impure and adulterated drugs or with drugs of diminished strength. Such persons are not only deceiving the entire profession bit also deceiving themselves as their existence is closely bound up with future of Homoeopathy. Money is their aim and cheapness their only attraction. These manufactures who adopt unfair means will only hasten the fall of Homoeopathy with their unwanted products.

They never work with the purpose of elevating the position of Homoeopathy, their sole aim is earning money, which, they think, is their God. This unwholesome policy of some of the Homoeopathic chemists will bring unimaginable harm to the cause and spread of Homoeopathy. It is undeniably true that these Homoeopathic chemists are enemies to human society and they deserve universal hatred and condemnation.
