Antimicrobial resistance has often pushed back all the breakthroughs and technological advancement of modern medicine. The theme for this year’s World Health Day was the launch of a worldwide campaign to safeguard these medicines for future generations.
Homeopathy has this unique feature that there can never be a resistance to the drugs. Homeopathy believes that it is the sick man that attracts the microbes- they are mere scavangers. Man is diseased first and due to the disease, the organisms get a chance to grow and proliferate. There are millions of microbes in our mouth, our gut and on the skin. However one does not have any signs and symptoms of disease just because these microbes are found in abundance on and in our body.
The symptoms of disease appear when man is sick and hence can no longer prevent the colonization of the tissues with these organisms. Dr. Samuel Hahnemann, the founder of homeopathy, had predicted the existence of micro-organisms long before the microscope was invented.
Homeopaths understand that symptoms of disease are evidence of the body’s natural immune systems response to healing itself and these clues are used to guide them when prescribing a remedy.
