Who is the most important person in the world? Just use your imagination and think. Who is it? I’ll give you a hint. It is not the wealthiest, not the most influential and not the most important person in the world today.
The most important person in the world today is defined by the letter “I”. The verb “to be” means to exist and take up space on the planet. The first person singular form of the verb “to be” is “I am”. “I am” defines that I exist. The word “I” defines the most important person in the world today.

This is the first of a series of in-depth articles about Homeopathy by Dr. Iqbal
The founder of homeopathy, Samuel Hahnemann, was born on April 10th, 1755 at Meissen, in Saxony, Germany. He was the son of an Artisan, a porcelain painter. His childhood was humble, and he attended Meissen High School by becoming a servant in the house of one of the masters. Hahnemann received a classical education, and was a top student in the languages of Greek and Latin.
In 1775, at the age of twenty, Hahnemann started his studies of medicine in Leipsic. He made his living by giving instruction in German and French and by translating English books into German. In 1779, he received a degree as an M.D.
Homeopathic practitioners are trained to repertorize (take a history of clients complaints, lifestyle and eating habits) the client--symptoms to form an educated conclusion as to the right remedy for the presenting symptoms.Because each remedy can address so many different symptoms, it takes a good history to determine what will work best for that particular client.
Yet, according to Dr. Iqbal, my teacher, there are remedies that just do what they do and that is the topic of todays article. Very much like keeping certain medicines in the medicine cabinet such as; aspirin, cough syrup, band-aids, etc. which are specific for certain situations.
Symptoms in Homeopathy
A basic premise of Homeopathy is remedies work because they trigger the body's own healing abilities.The theory of Homeopathy was founded more than 200 years ago, by Dr. Samuel Hahnemann (1755-1843), a German physician.

When these substances are taken in a highly diluted form, they can relieve the same symptoms they originally induced at the higher dosage. The concept is "Like cures Like."A basic premise of Homeopathy is remedies work because they trigger the body's own healing abilities.
