Homeopathy doesnt treat Disease, but it treat MAN IN DISEASE, any disease that occur in an individual is not without permission of his genetic code. Contrary to belief of modern science that genes are responsible for only genetic diseases.(e.g Down's syndrome, Duchene's muscular dystrophy, Thalassemia etc.) Homeopathic philosophy strictly consider that even inflammatory disorders or viral diseases, Growth or Destructions in tissue occur with permission of Genetic code.

If the Genetic code is so much involved in Physical make up, Mental make up, General make up and Disease make up of the person, then its logical that in order to eradicate a acute, recurrent or chronic problems we need to address the genetic code. Thus in homeopathy we take into consideration patient as a whole if we have to cure disease like Chronic Asthma, Allergies, Hypertension, Diabetes, Thyroid problem etc. The limitation of the existing system of medicine claims these diseases to be incurable and can only be treated in order to control, In modern medicine THE EFFECT IS TAKEN AS DISEASE AND ITS TREATED eg.- In Diabetes treatment is aimed at controlling sugar level, In Hypertension treatment is aimed at Controlling Blood Pressure, In Hyperlipidaemia or Raised Uric Acid levels treatment is aimed at contrlling levels with drugs & diet. Genetic tendency to increase levels is not considered so Modern Medicine treat Disease in Man & Homeopathy Treats Man In Disease.


Success of homeopathy was seen in 1918-1919 pandemic flu. Here is information from famous historian Julian Winston

Perhaps the most recent use of homeopathy in a major epidemic was during the Influenza Pandemic of 1918. The Journal of the American Institute for Homeopathy, May, 1921, had a long article about the use of homeopathy in the flu epidemic. Dr. T A McCann, from Dayton, Ohio, reported that 24,000 cases of flu treated allopathically had a mortality rate of 28.2% while 26,000 cases of flu treated homeopathically had a mortality rate of 1.05%. This last figure was supported by Dean W.A. Pearson of Philadelphia ( Hahnemann College ) who collected 26,795 cases of flu treated with homeopathy with the above result.

The most common remedy used was Gelsemium, with occasional cases needing Bryonia and Eupatorium reported. Dr. Herbert A. Roberts from Derby, CT, said that 30 physicians in Connecticut responded to his request for data. They reported 6,602 cases with 55 deaths, which is less than 1%. Dr. Roberts was working as a physician on a troop ship during WWI. He had 81 cases of flu on the way over to Europe . He reported, "All recovered and were landed. Every man received homeopathic treatment. One ship lost 31 on the way.".
