History of Homeopathy In Japan

A Visit by Malaysian Homeopath, Nik Bazilah Hakimah bt Dr Nik Omar to Japan

From Edo period to before the World War II

Two western approaches (mechanist and vitalist theories) were brought into Japan through books. The concept of “Homoeopathy” was introduced to Japan in the Edo period.

The mechanistic approach to medicine was introduced as “Manbyo Chijun”, which was translated into Japanese from the Dutch version (1778) of “Institutiones Medicae in Usus Annuae Exercitaliones Domesticos” by Blue Harve (1708). On the other hand, a medical system based on vitalism, led by Hufeland (Christoph Wilhelm Hufelad : 1762~1836), was more easily embraced by Japanese doctors who were oriented toward humoral pathology, which had a long established background.

The “Pathologue” by Hufeland (1796) (the most important work in his early days), was published as “Pathogenesis” (1850), which was translated from the Dutch. The medicine of Hufeland seems to have been used widely in Japan. “Kazuisutika” (1911, Meiji 44) by Ogai Mori states: “The medicine, which my old man practices, is mainly based on Hufeland’s thought …” that is a medicine, being practiced by a hero’s father, which is modelled on Ogai’s father.

Homoeopathy was not settled in Japan, though the words ‘Hahnemann’ and ‘Homoeopathy’ were put into Chinese characters and it was partly introduced in the Edo period. There are two reasons to be considered. Firstly, homoeopathy was standing on a theory of vitalism, and that approach was too dogmatic in character. It seems that the concept of homoeopathy didn’t coincide with the Japanese sensitivity to pragmatism, which respects practices more than theories.

Secondly, Japanese medicine in those days was basically medicinal herbs, acupuncture and moxibustion, which methods had been developed to a very sophisticated art. After the Meiji period, there was an increased flow of medical information from Europe.

There was a company “Fukuinkoji”, that imported and sold homoeopathic remedies from Boerick Tafel’s in America, Showa 8 (1933), and their Tokyo branch was located in Meguro-ku. A book, called ‘Homoeopathic Medicines’ was published by the company. There was a manufacturer of homoeopathic remedies in Marugame in Kagawa in the early Showa period, and the prime minister at that time, Makoto Suzuki, wrote “There is no border for a good medicine.”

Japanese medicine had been strongly influenced by German medicine prior to World War?, but it was swayed by American conventional and pharmaceutical medicine after the World War?, when Japan was occupied by the United States.

After World War II

Just after World War II, Hiroshi Sakaguchi (Kyoto University Medical School graduate) had a strong interest in oriental medicine. He went to Germany to teach acupuncture and moxibustion on the invitation of Dr. Schmidt, who was studying in Japan. While Sakaguchi was teaching acupuncture and moxibustion, he became familiar with homoeopathy. Homeopathy was a therapeutic system different from both oriental and western medicine.

It was around the 200th year celebration of Hahnemann’s birth. Homoeopathy was not a subject of research in the University, but it was rooted firmly as an alternative medicine. Sakaguchi studied homoeopathy in a Stuttgart hospital and, after he returned to Japan, wrote “Homoeopathic Treatment”, based on his experiences. There is some doubt about whether the book captured the essence of homeopathy and it didn’t have much effect on medical practice in Japan.

In spite of writing the book, Sakaguchi rarely treated people with homeopathy. He said “The reason why I did not use homoeopathy was purely I did not need to do so.” With this statement he expressed his pride in the effectiveness of acupuncture, moxibustion and Chinese herbal medicine. There is some evidence that homoeopathic treatment was carried on by a woman doctor named Sakon.

In 1975, when Queen Elizabeth visited Japan, she asked to consult with a homoeopath, but the Foreign Ministry could not find a Japanese homeopath. She was eventually treated by a homoeopath from another country who happened to live in Japan.

Since the 1980s, some people in Japan who had been abroad, started using homoeopathy. This was due to the rising interest worldwide, in alternative medicines. Homoeopathy has never been introduced to Japan by the mass media, but rather was mentioned as a mysterious treatment by a few spiritual-type magazines in the 1990s. The lack of attention to homoeopathy almost seemed intentional, and homeopathy remained obscure until until Ms Torako Yui started her activity in Japan in 1996.

Ms Torako Yui remembers those days, “That time in Japan… If somebody could just turn a tap, water (knowledge of homeopathy) would start to flow and people could have benefited from it. But it was as if someone were guarding the tap, so it wouldn’t be found. Homoeopathy had been spread all over the world, and it seemed unnatural that it didn’t exist in Japan.

I felt strongly that I had to tell everybody that the tap existed here. In the beginning there were so many difficulties in introducing homoeopathy to the Japanese people, but the water began to flow and it has been become a big river now. It has finally reached a point where no one can stop it. I could not have done this without the support from the U.K. I’m really, really thankful to them.”

Modern times

The introduction and spread of homoeopathy since 1996 has been called a miracle, as it has been so rapid. The accomplishments of Torako Yui, as a pioneer, are viewed with awe. She had been practicing homoeopathy in London (1966), when she was asked to give a lecture on homoeopathy in Japan. That’s when her activity in Japan began. One after the other, she established the organizations that were necessary to ground homeopathy in Japan.

Among her accomplishments were the establishment of educational and professional organizations, in order to spread homoeopathy promptly and widely. She also focused on educating the public through lectures, so that people could learn to treat themselves at home. She provided homoeopathic remedies at low cost to make them accessible to people.

A list of her accomplishment includes:

Providing education in homoeopathy

The first Japanese homoeopathy college, the Japan Royal Academy of Homoeopathy (RAH) was established by Torako Yui in April 1997. The college aims at providing the highest standards of training. Below are the some of the eminent homeopaths who have taught RAH students so far:

Michel Odent, Farokh Master, David Needleman, Ian Watson, Didier Grandgeorge, Jan Scholten, Robin Murphy, Rosina Sonnenschmidt, John Morgan, David Howell, Raj Bains, Mario Boyadzhiev, Arthur Bailey, Martin Miles, Colin Griffith, Miranda Castro, Frans Vermeulen, Yubraj Sharma, S. K. Banerjea, Rudi Verspoor, Ewald Stöteler, David Lilley, George Dimitriadis, Trevor Gunn, Margaret Roy, Jacques Benveniste, Melissa Assilem, Robert Davidson, Jonathan Stallick, Myriam Shivadikar, Phil Wander, Sam Needleman, Andrew Lockie, Roger Dyson, Trevor Adams, Alize Timmerman, Jane Whitehead, Robert Duddell, Mike Bridger, Peter Crockett, H.E. van der Zee, Shaik Rahmathullah, Steve Smith, Elizabeth Adalian, John Hoare, Frederick Schroyens, Linda Gwillim, Jerome Whitney, Ellen Kramer, Rachel Roberts, Richard Kenchington, Geoff Johnson, Bob Wooler, Peter Morrell, Colin Lessell, Hilery Dorrian, Frederick Cole, William Nelson, Victor Sims, Karin Mont, and so on.

One of tutors we had invited to Japan, Rosina Sonnenschmidt, mentioned RAH in a German science journal “Raum & Zeit”.

Through these activities, the latest knowledge of homeopathy from around the world was brought to Japan and has boosted Japanese homoeopathy to world class level within a short time. The RAH developed a unique, undogmatic and free college spirit. A number of homoeopaths have visited Japan in the last ten years, apart from RAH invitation and this resulted in creating a significant intellectual exchange between Japan and overseas. In 2006, RAH established a main college in the U.K. and started to broadcast lectures from there to six other Japanese colleges (Sapporo, Tokyo, Nagoya, Osaka, Kyoto and Fukuoka) using a high technological TV conference system. Subsequently, the colleges started the animal homoeopathy course, as well as part-time and full-time courses. RAH has gained a high reputation as an innovative and pragmatic school, which included overseas lecturers.

In homoeopathy, the advancement of theoretical knowledge is highly respected. It can be obtained through learning homoeopathic principles, miasm theory and Materia Medica explained in the “Organon of Medicine”. Students should also learn about pathology, physiology and anatomy from homoeopathic a medical point of view, which information will be useful in practice. The policy of RAH is to choose a method most applicable to each patient and not to abide by a particular one. Our students shall not be biased to a certain treatment, but learn various approaches and be capable of selecting what is most suitable for the patient. They will study over one hundred cases with senior homoeopaths before their graduation, as we focus on practicality.

Due to Yui’s effort in researching practical cures, Japanese homoeopathy is highly developed in the area of applied homoeopathy for modern diseases such as allergy, developmental disorders (like autism and hyperkinesias), self immune disorders (like cancer and AIDS), mental illness, inner child and many other intractable diseases, as well as iatrogenic and drug–induced diseases and those produced by environmental toxins.

The academic international exchange was deepened by Yui’s presentation at the 2003 congress of the Homoeopathic Medical Association (HMA) in UK and the international conference in Dubai in 2007 on iatrogenic diseases.

On 1st April, 1998, Yui established the Japanese Homoeopathic Medical Association (JPHMA) in Japan, where homeopathy as a profession was unknown then, and who’s main purposes were to diffuse and develop homoeopathic medicine correctly, to form homoeopathic medical educational foundations as an academic body and to register, certify and advise homoeopaths as a professional body. JPHMA was literally the first organization for professional homeopaths in Japan. The activities of JPHMA include administering registration exams, education, trainings and professional insurance for homoeopaths, organizing annual academic conferences, publishing quarterly academic homoeopathy journals for its members, integrating and registering counseling clinics called homoeopathic centres, educational organizations for homoeopaths and a membership club called Homoeopathy Toranokokai for those working to diffuse homoeopathy, organizing seminars and charity functions, and presenting at events.

Yui attended the international conference in Dubai and the first meeting of International Council for Homeopathy (ICH) in Heidelberg as a Japanese representative.

As of May, 2008, seven hundred members are registered in JPHMA including students. Homoeopaths and patients who practiced homoeopathic treatment were covered by insurance from the summer of 2005, which allowed JPHMA to be admitted in ICH. The registration system of homoeopaths was altered from UK’s HMA to JPHMA's own one in 2006.

Since the first ten JPHMA homoeopaths were registered by HMA (with interpreters assistance, at the British Embassy in Japan in 2000), the number of JPHMA registered homoeopaths has risen to two hundreds ninety by 2007 and they will be expected to exceed four hundreds in 2008.

The nature of JPHMA is very open, and we accept anyone who passed the JPHMA exam as JPHMA registered homoeopaths to practice medicine in Japan, no matter whether they had learned classical or practical homoeopathy. The graduates of other homeopathic schools including overseas, and those who belonged to other homeopathic associations overseas can also be registered as members upon passing the JPHMA exam. There are actually cases of stuldents who did not graduate RAH, which is a JPHMA recognized college, who passed JPHMA exam and are practicing as JPHMA registered homeopaths.

JPHMA supports the idea that “after learning homoeopathy for a considerable period, graduates from recognized homeopathic schools are entitled to take strict exams, pass and be registered by authoritative and traditional organizations, if they have enough knowledge, skills and abilities as professional homeopaths”. Its policy is that a professional registered homoeopath should not necessarily have to be a doctor or a practitioners of conventional medicine to practice homeopathic treatment, as long as they were trained, tested and passed a exam by a authoritative and traditional organization.

In January 2000, the Japanese Physicians Society for Homeopathy (JPSH) was founded with a policy different from that of JPHMA. They left eligibility of homoeopaths only to qualified doctors of conventional medicine. JPSH was established by a conventional medical doctor, Ryoichi Obitsu, and led by medical doctors, dentists and vets. Their attitude differs from JPHMA in terms of the eligibility of professional homoeopaths who are not qualified as conventional medical doctors.

Although JPHMA and JPSH are different in their policies about the eligibility of homoeopaths, they are not opposed to each other. Once there was a rumor about conflict between homoeopaths who were medical doctors and those who were not, but no such situation existed. JPHMA admits the necessity of conventional medicine from its start, and that there are strong and weak points for both methods. Patients should be benefit fully by the methods complementing each other. JPHMA does suggest that patients have conventional medical treatment when necessary. The chairperson of JPSH, Ryoichi Obitsu, also recognizes the importance of alternative medicine, and the Japan Holistic Medical Society (JHMS) which he also chairs accept those who are not qualified as medical doctors, as its members.

Moreover, there are many JPHMA members who are conventional medical practitioners such as doctors, dentists and vets. JPHMA president, Yui, delivered lectures for JHMS, participated in medical conferences held by such organizations as Japan Society of Ningen Dock, Japan Mibyou System Association, Japan Academy of Midwifery and held seminars for health care professionals. One of JSH’s member doctors is actually a RAH graduate. The need for homoeopathic application has increased especially in such areas as preventive and alternative medicine, in area of developmental disorders such as autism and hyperkinesis and in area of obstinate diseases such as self immune disorders and iatrogenic diseases. In addition, there is a move to introduce lectures on homoeopathy at a conventional medical university. (In 2008, the annual academic conference for the tenth anniversary of JPHMA will be open to the public and homoeopaths from all over the nation will present their cases on the theme of “atopic diseases, autism, hyperkinesis, cancers-----homoeopathic approach in Japan, the country of obstinate diseases”. A panel discussion including conventional medical practitioners, will also be held during the conference.)

In 2002, George Vithoulkas started a four year correspondence school (twelve school days annually), IACH, and its first students graduated in 2006. There are growing numbers of students who take overseas homoeopathic correspondence courses or go abroad to study. Seminars, lectures and training sessions have been increased to meet the needs of the general public. There are concerns in Japan among homoeopaths about some new schools that will not qualify their graduates as registered homoeopaths. One school was chaired and lectures were given by people not qualified as homoeopaths. They did not give a qualification to their graduates and many students quit before graduation. As long as they call themselves a homoeopathic school, it is essential to keep a certain level quality in order to acquire status in Japan. Moreover, there are some professed homoeopaths with no qualification that are causing confusion among homoeopathy users. Some qualified homoeopaths do not register at homoeopathic organizations like JPHMA or JPSH and so they work without professional insurance, which may harm the reputation of homoeopathy. Homoeopathic organizations should work together to solve these problems to allow homoeopathy to be recognized as a profession, like acupuncture or judo taxis in the past.

JPHMA sets the hourly homoeopathic consultation fees of their registered homoeopaths between JPY8,000 and 15,000 from its inception. There once were homoeopaths who charged JPY150,000 per hour, so this controlled price range shall help patients gain access and lead to wider use of homoeopathy.

Yui has also been carrying out educational programs for the public on homoeopathic first aid and treatment for minor symptoms. She organized lecture/ meetings nation-wide under the catchphrase “Appreciate Your Symptoms”. She taught the fundamental philosophy of homoeopathy and many were moved by her words and her charisma to start using homoeopathy. Approximately one thousand people attended Yui’s lecture at Healing and Beauty Life Style Fare in Tokyo, 2008.

JPHMA approved Homoeopathy Users Club, Homoeopathy Toranokokai, started in 1998 and the number of members exceeded 20,000 in 2008. Its quarterly journal “Oasis” being a bridge between them. Homoeopathy Toranokokai was registered at The Prince of Wales’s Foundation for Integrated Health in 2004 .

The number of e-mails on homoeopathic experience sent to Homoeopathy Toranokokai’s website has been constantly rising which means more and more people began to treat homoeopathy as necessary in their lives. Homoeopathy also became popular in the area of health and sports and as part of participating in the 2008 theme event “Homoeopathy in Sports” of World Awareness Homeopathy Week, JPHMA teamed up with Keiko Masuda, lecturer at Kanagawa University of Human Services, and organized “body movement and homoeopathy” seminars which was attended by many people. (

From 2008, JPHMA has started to practice homoeopathy for a professional football team, FC Ryukyu, which is led by general manager, Philippe Troussier, who was a previous manager for the Japanese national team.

The price of a remedy in Japan was once JPY15,000. A more affordable remedy was an essential factor for diffusion of homoeopathy, so Yui decided to establish the “Homoeopathy Japan Company” , enabling it from her own funds. (She resigned from running the company so as to focus on activities as a homoeopath and JPHMA’s educational campaign.) The company has affiliated technically with Helios Homoeopathy Ltd in UK, contracted as their Japanese sole agent and enabled to distribute a 30C remedy for JPY500. Various home care kits were developed so as to spread homoeopathy in private homes and that worked effectively. We also merchandise products like balancing remedies for inner body minerals, based on the theory of Schuessler’s tissue salts of Germany, sets of nosode remedies for preventative medicine and activating the immune system, detoxification remedies for drugs and vaccination, homoeopathy applied products and remedies to heal inner child and mental traumas. All these activities met the requirement of modern Japanese health needs and made homeopathic products accessible to the general public.

With growing popularity, a wide range of homoeopathic products (remedies and cosmetics) have become obtainable through various importing routes including private ones. Neal’s Yard Remedies in UK also have homoeopathic products, as well as essential oils and aromatherapy products. Many families who practice Waldorf education use homoeopathy as it is suggested by its founder, Rudolf Steiner. Many Europeans and Indians who reside in Japan, also use homeopathy. Homoeopathic principles were applied to develop energy instruments like Quantum Xrroid SCIO. Many homoeopaths use them and seminars are organized. In Europe, homoeopathic theory has started to apply in agriculture.

Back in 2000, “homoeopathy” was registered as a trademark for cosmetics by a major cosmetic company and “remedy” was registered by a health food maker, although internationally they were genericized names. Therefore, we registered “homoeopathy” for the food, literacy and education field and left the name free to use by anyone in order to genericize in Japan.

Circulation of Homoeopathic Books

Over one hundred homoeopathic books have been released in Japanese from various publishers making it easier for the Japanese to learn homeopathy. Homoeopathic Publishing Ltd. published more than fifty books including the sixth edition of “Organon of Medicine”, which was faithfully translated from the original German under Yui’s supervision. To add to this publishing rush, Sunchou Publishing released the Japanese translation of “Encyclopedia of Homeopathy” by Andrew Lockie under the supervision of the honorary professor of Meiji University, Shinichiro Otsuki, who is famous as an authority on Greek classics translation and study and also for the history of spagyrics. (Please refer to the book list attached in the end)

Shunsuke Fujii, the chief secretary of the liaison council for vaccination-induced victims, has translated and published “Vaccination and Immunization: Dangers, Delusions and Alternatives” by Leon Chaitow. This book, which described the hazards of vaccination, led to the complete victory in lawsuits for vaccination victims all over Japan. In March 2007, JPHMA organized the first international homoeopathy medical symposium on efficiency of vaccination. The lecturers were Shunsuke Fujii, Trevor Gunn, an English homoeopath, biochemist and author of “Comparing Natural Immunity with Vaccination” and Yui, who wrote “The Basic Guide to Immunization and Iatrogenic Diseases”.

Homoeopathy plays an important role in treating iatrogenic diseases and environmental illnesses that have become huge social problems in Japan. The classic “Vaccinosis and Its Cure” by the English doctor, J. Compton Burnett, was also published from Homoeopathic Publishing Ltd.

Research Paper: Treatment of Highland Frogs From Two-legged Stage With Homeopathically Prepared Thyroxin

Treatment of highland frogs from the two-legged stage with homeopathically prepared thyroxin (10-11 - 10-21).

Lingg G, Endler PC, Frass M, Lothaller H.
Interuniversity College for Health and Development Graz/Castle of Seggau, Austria.

The influence of moderately diluted, agitated, i.e., homeopathically prepared, thyroxin solutions (10-11 - 10-21, final concentration in the basin water 0.6 10-15 - 0.6 10-25 parts by weight after the first application) on metamorphosis in highland Rana temporaria from the two-legged stage was studied. In accordance with the homeopathic idea of effects of specially prepared dilutions being inverse to those of their mother substances, animals were treated either with thyroxin 10-11 - 10-21 or analogously prepared blank solution (water).

Development was monitored by documenting the number of animals that had entered the four-legged stage. It has been found that animals treated with the thyroxin solutions metamorphosed more slowly than the control animals, i.e., the effect of the homeopathically prepared thyroxin was opposed to the usual effect of molecular thyroxin. The number of test animals that reached the four-legged stage at defined points in time was smaller (2-13.5%) in the group treated with homeopathically prepared thyroxin at the points in time, compared to control. The results in this study sustain the previous multiresearcher findings that show that diluted homeopathically prepared thyroxin is able to slow down metamorphosis of R. temporaria.

Research Paper : Effects of Homeopathy In Mice Experimentally Infected With Trypanosoma Cruzi

Effects of homeopathy in mice experimentally infected with Trypanosoma Almeida LR, Campos MC, Herrera HM, Bonamin LV, da Fonseca AH.

Department of Animal Parasitology, Universidade Federal Rural do Rio de Janeiro, RJ, Brazil.

AIM: The aim of this study was to evaluate the action of homeopathic treatment on mice experimentally infected with Trypanosoma cruzi. METHODS: Eighty adult male C57BL/6 inbred mice were randomly allocated to five groups treated with biotherapy (nosode) of T. cruzi 12dH (12x) pre- and post-infection; Phosphorus 12dH post-infection; infected control treated with control solution and uninfected control.

The biotherapy was prepared by the Costa method from the blood of mice experimentally infected with the Y strain of T. cruzi. Phosphorus was used because of its clinical and reportorial similarity to Chagas disease. T. cruzi (10(4)) sanguineous forms were inoculated intraperitoneally per animal. Parasitaemia was monitored, leukocyte and serological responses were evaluated at 0, 7, 14 and 42 days after infection. The prepatent and patent periods of parasitaemia, maximum of parasitaemia, day of maximum parasitaemia and mortality rates were compared between groups.

RESULTS: A significantly shorter period of patent parasitaemia was observed in the group treated with the biotherapy before infection (p<0.05) than in the other groups. This group also had the lowest parasitaemias values at 9, 13, 15 (p<0.05), 17 (p<0.05), 22, 24 and 28 days, a lower rate of mortality and a significant increase of lymphocytes compared to the infected control group. The Phosphorus group had the longest period of patent parasitaemia, higher maximum parasitaemia, and a significant reduction of lymphocyte numbers, but no mortality.

The infected control group had the highest mortality rate (not statistically significant), and the highest IgG titres at 42 days post-infection (p<0.05). CONCLUSIONS: The results suggest that pre-treatment with biotherapy modulates host immune response to T. cruzi, mainly during the acute phase of the infection. Phosphorus shows an action on the pathogenicity by T. cruzi infection. Homeopathic treatment of T. cruzi infection should be further investigated.

Samuel Hahnemann, Birthday 10 April

Today is the Birthday of Dr.Christian Frederic Samuel Hahnemann,founder of Homoeopathy.

Short Life History of Hahnemann Hahnemann life history

Samuel Frederick Christian Hahnemann was born at Meissen, in Saxony, on the 10th of April in the year 1755 as the third child of his parents. His father, Mr. Christian Godfried Hahnemann was a porcelain painter in a factory at Meissen. Johanna Christeana Speiss, who became the second wife of Godfried Hahnemann was his mother.

At the age of 20 he commenced his medical studies at Leipzig, and earned his living by translating into German foreign scientific works at the same time that he pursued his studies. After two years at Leipzig he removed to Vienna, to gain practical knowledge in the great hospitals there. He took his M. D. degree a Erlangen in 1779.
Hahnemann was an excellent linguist, being perfectly familiar with English, Italian, French, Greek, Latin, and Arabic.

Early years
Whilst yet a student he translated from English into German, among other works, Nugent's Essay on Hydrophobia, Stedman's Physiological Essays, and Ball's Modern Practice of Physic. From 4779 onwards he contributed to periodical literature, and in 1784, at the age of 29, he published his first original work, On the Treatment of Chronic Ulcers. In this work he expressed pretty much the same sentiment as that I have quoted from Sir Andrew Clark as to the want of principle in medicine.

He lamented "the absence of any principle for discovering the curative powers of medicines". After 1788 Hahnemann seems to have given up practice in disgust. In a letter to Hufeland, the Nestor of medicine of his day (to whose journal - Hufeland's Journal - Hahnemann was a constant contributor), he says his withdrawal was chiefly occasioned by his disgust at the uncertainties of medical practice, owing to the want of any principle for the administration of drugs in disease. During this time he occupied himself with chemical researches and the translation of works on chemistry, agriculture, and medicine, from the English, French, and Italian.

Cinchona experiment

It was whilst engage in translating Cullen's Materia Medica in 1790 that he made the classical observation which has proved to be to the science of drug study what the falling apple observed by the boy Newton has been to physical science. As his mind was always occupied with the search for some guiding principle for the selection of medicines in disease, he was struck with the unsatisfactory nature of Cullen's explanation of the action of Cinchona bark in the cure of ague.

That it did cure many cases of ague Hahnemann could not deny; and it occurred to him that if he took some of the drug when quite well he might obtain some clue to an explanation of its curative action. He took it in considerable quantities, and produced in himself all the symptoms of an ordinary attack of intermittent fever. The account of the experiment will be found in a footnote to page 108 of vol. II. of his translation of Cullen's Materia Medica.

Here Hahnemann was in possession of two related facts : Cinchona bark cured ague, and it also caused, in a sensitive, healthy person, symptoms indistinguishable from an attack of ague. Five years later, in 1796, being then 41 years of age, he published in Hufeland's Journal his essay on a New Principle for Discovering the Curative Powers of Drugs.

In this essay he referred to his early note on Cullen, and said after mature experience he could day that not only probably, but quite certainly, bark cured ague because it had the power to produce fever. He quotes examples of well-known drug actions to support his proposition, and sketched in a masterly way the characteristic features of a number of drugs. In 1805 - Hahnemann being now 50 years old - appeared two works of great importance : first, his Aesculapius in the Balance, which takes a general survey of traditional medicine and pronounces on it the verdict "weighed in the balances and found wanting" - a verdict which has since received very ample endorsement.

Second, in two vols. in Latin, His Fragmenta de viribus medicamentorum positivis sive in sano corpore observatis (Fragments on the Positive Powers of Drugs, - that is to say, their effects observed in the healthy body). This contained the first effort towards the reconstruction of the Materia Medica on a rational basis of pure experiment on the healthy human body. In 1806 appeared his Medicine of Experience, in which is contained the first complete exposition of the homoeopathic method now thoroughly thought out by him after sixteen years of unremitting work - observation, experiment, and research.

This was published in Hufeland's Journal - that is to say, in the leading professional journal of this time. The same year Hahnemann published the last work he translated - Haller's Materia Medica, Haller being one of Hahnemann's forerunners in recommending the testing of drugs on the healthy body; but Haller did nothing towards carrying his recommendation into effect. In 1807 Hahnemann first used the word "Homoeopathic" in the title of a work - an article also contributed to Hufeland's Journal - on "Indications of the Homoeopathic Employment of Medicines in Ordinary Practice;" Organon

The year 1810 may be said to be the birth-year of Homeopathy, for in that year appeared the first edition of the Organon, which is and expansion of the Medicine of Experience, and a complete statement of the Homoeopathic method. The publication of Hahnemann's Organon marks an epoch in the history of therapeutics. It constitutes a complete, practical, and philosophical statement of the art of cure. Four other editions of the work followed the first; the fifth edition appearing in 1833.

Chronic disease

By this time Hahnemann's fame as a practitioner had spread far and wide. The result was that invalids flocked to the little town of Coethen in search of his aid. The majority of these were affected with ailments of long standing, and thus it came about that Hahnemann had abundant opportunity of observing the symptoms and course of chronic diseases, and in amplifying and perfecting the homoeopathic means of curing them.

In Coethen there was comparatively little in the way of acute illness to distract him from this special line of work.. It was during this period that Hahnemann's first work on Chronic Diseases was written and the first edition was published. In 1828 the first three volumes appeared, nine years after his arrival in Coethen. The fourth volume was published in 1830, and the fifth not till after the Coethen period, when Hahnemann had removed to Paris.


In 1831 cholera invaded Germany from the East. On its approach, on the basis of the therapeutic rules, Hahnemann fixed up on the remedies specific for it and printed direction to be circulated all over the country. As a prophylactic and remedy for the first stage of cholera, he recommended camphor and in advanced cases, 2nd and 3rd stages Cuprum, Veratrum. Bryonia and Rhus tox.

The treatment recommended by Hahnemann soon proved to be successful and even medical boards recommended his procedure. On March 31, 1830, Hahnemann had the misfortune to lose his first wife, he being then near the completion of his seventy-fifth year. She had been the stay and companion of his stormy life, and had borne him eleven children, two sons and nine daughters.

Second wife – life in paris
Nearly five years after this event there came to Coethen among the number of those who sought the aid of the modern Aesculapius, the brilliant and talented Mélanie d'Hervilly Gohier. As all the world knows, the acquaintance ended in the second marriage of Hahnemann, he then being in his eightieth year, and his bride thirty-five. But it was anything but an ill-assorted match, for all that.

The second Madame Hahnemann perceived that her husband might fill a much larger sphere of usefulness of he left Coethen and made his home in Paris. Thither she induced him to travel, and through her influence with the Government of the time she obtained for Hahnemann a license to practise in the French capital. A student of science, an artist, and something of an anatomist as well, under her husband's tuition, she rapidly developed no little skill in the practice of medicine and homoeopathy.

She became practically his assistant, as it was impossible for Hahnemann to attend to all who came to see him. Madame Hahnemann acted as his protector, and would not allow more to have access to him than he could attend to. For eight years the Hahnemann's led in Paris a life of great activity and unclouded happiness, the centre of a brilliant circle. Hahnemann's presence in Paris gave a great impetus to the study and practice of homoeopathy, and the influence of his work in that city remains to this day. On Sunday, July 2, 1843, at the age of eighty nine , he breathed his last. He was buried in the cemetery of Montmartre.

Letter from LMHI - International League From Germany

Close Friends, Prof Nik Omar Malaysia ,with President LMHI Dr Ulrich D. Fischer from Germany and Dr Renzo Gallassi, Secretary General LMHI from Italy, at Liga Congress in Belgium 2008

Dear friends,

First of all a warm greeting from Italy. I write to you in order to let you know the important message of our president Ulrich Fischer. I also remember to you that our meeting of the International Council will be held in Warsaw on 26th of August. You will receive further information, but at the moment I give you the date of the meeting in order to reserve your flight and hotel. regards, renzo galassi- general secretary

Subject: LMHI office in Bonn

Dear friends of the Executive Committee, you will remember that Mrs. Gugerell/Vienna, the former secretary of the LMHI administration retired from work.Already some time ago, Thomas Peinbauer informed us about the need to look for of a new help for our membership administration.During the last year the officers of the LMHI and especially Thomas Peinbauer, have been thinking about alternatives.

Considering different possibilities,the best option now was to join the administration office of the German Association of Homeopathic Physicians (Deutscher Zentralverein homöopathischer Ärzte -DZVhÄ) in Bonn. The fact that our new LMHI website has been developed in close cooperation with the DZVhÄ and the fact that Christoph Trapp (the spokesman, press-responsible of the DZVhÄ) is not only willing to support LMHI in its press work but also will be responsible for the electronic version of the LMHI newsletter had almost as logical consequence to start an office cooperation with the DZVhÄ.

This cooperation is limited until our Warsaw Congress in august. We will then see if this cooperation will be continued or not. Last Friday, 3.of april, the joint office DZVhÄ - LMHI has been officially inaugurated by the LMHI President and the President and the board of the DZVhÄ. It is quite a special day and event for LMHI because -with a relative small amount of money we will do a big step towards a professional administration and promotion of LMHI and that means to a future which corresponds to the needs of an organization as it represents the LMHI.

In Bonn, at this moment, Mrs. Caroline Geisler is working on the last details of the LMHI website and together with Mr. Trapp on the 1. edition of the LMHI newsletter (published twice a year and being used for LMHI news and reports). The LMHI LigaLetter will be continued in -paper copy- as usual. Mrs. Geisler and Mr. Trapp will be supported by Mrs. von Ahlen (the DZVhÄ secretary) who will work certain hours also for the LMHI, continuing the work of Mrs. Gugerell.

Going in small steps, last Friday I could see in Bonn, that the construction of our new website is on a good way and will be soon online. I had also the 1.- edition of the LMHI newsletter in my hands which will be sent to our members right after being online with our website .

It remains to wish you all HAPPY EASTER and a Easter week which might help to remind all responsible persons in this world of the need of light and peace for everybody.

Dr. Ulrich D. Fischer

Homeopathy Malaysia- History

With thanks to Nik Omar Vice President LHMI Malaysia
As presented at 63rd International Homeopathic Medical League Congress
at Oostense, Belgium 2008

Although it is not easy to fix the date of advent of Homeopathy in Malaysia, most homeopathic practitioners here agree that around 1940 homeopathy was introduced in Malay States via India through British Army. The first Malay known to practice homeopathy was Dr Burhanuddin Helmy later came late Dr Mohd Noor Nordin, Dr Dali Muin, Dr Shariff Sukar, Pak Yaakub, Ab Rhaman Hashim and few others.

In 1960’s this group formed first ‘Homeopathic Society of Malaysia’ at Taiping and later Pak Yaakub formed another Homeopathic Bumiputra at Johor Baharu. The members in 1960 – 1980 were about 100 only but most of them are part time practitioners who are practicing at home.

A Landmark in History of Homeopathy in Malaysia

In 1970 Nik Omar bin Nik Daud and Mr Ahmad Shukry the son of Burhanuddin Helmy were the first two Malays who studied formal homeopathic education overseas at Pakistan Homeopathic Medical College and Hospital, and both of them qualified in 1975. Dr Nik Omar furthered his homeopathic education at London, U.K. while Dr Ahmad Shukry continued his study up to Master of Business Administration , MBA at Punjab University, and continued to further his education in Japan and was never involved in Homeopathy at all.

In 1977 Dr Nik Omar returned form homeopathic studies in London and started the first modern and well equipped homeopathic clinic right in his hometown of Kota Bharu. Although homeopathy was little known and widely misunderstood at that time, the cures brought about by his expertise in homeopathy won much acclaim for homeopathy.

The Formation of first Homeopathic Academy

In 1979, with 7 students, Dr Nik Omar began teaching, thus laying the foundation of ‘The Faculty of Homeopathy Malaysia’ FAHOM [Now 2008 Faculty has produced more than 2,000 homeopaths all over the world] the faculty started a years basic ‘Diploma in Homeopathy’, four years Bachelor of Homeopathy and another two ‘Doctorate in Homeopathy’.

In addition there are four Faculty of Homeopathy training Centres throughout Malaysia i.e. HQ at Pasir Mas, Kelantan, Kota Bharu, Kuala Lumpur and Bangi, Selangor which regularly provide clinical training in different subjects for local students, and practical training for practitioners from all over the world. The law of similars and the pure tenets of Hahnemann Homeopathy are taught. Besides the faculty covered all liberal medical subjects such as anatomy, physiology, pathology, obstetrics, etc.

Unfortunately, at the same time, bogus institution sprung up, such as round table homeopathic college, flying college, etc offering ‘diplomas’ and degrees, some of them got degree from correspondence colleges oversea. Much harm was done to homeopathic because of this.

The Central Homeopathic Organization

Due to this situation, Dr Nik Omar and group of qualified homeopath formed the national homeopathic organization by the name of ‘The Registered Homeopathic Medical Practitioners Association or ‘MRHP’ and prompted a government to pass a decree and gazetted by Parliament No. 1048 / 84 and thus united all qualified homeopath in one strong society. The first president Dr Nik Omar and Secretary General Dr Mohamed Ali Hamzah. MRHP HQ is at No.11, Bangunan Tabung Haji Lama, Jalan Dato Pati, 15000 Kota Bharu, Kelantan.

In 1979 Dr Nik Omar formed another organization ‘Homeopathic Doctors without Barriers’ DRTB within MRHP. 50 members in this group has volunteers themselves in almost all humanitarian activities and works as far as in slums areas in Sri Lanka, the poor’s of Thailand, the war stricken areas in Afghanistan , the refugee at Pakistan borders, the earth quakes at Indonesia, the Tsunami victims in Malaysia, etc. More than 100,000 peoples has benefited through this free homeopathic volunteer services.

Present Homeopathic Activities in Malaysia and abroad.

In 2007 we have listed about 100 full time homeopathic practitioners 500 part time practitioners and 500 associate homeopaths. There are about 50 homeopathic clinics operating throughout Malaysia to treat 27 million population. Homeopathic system of medication is becoming popular in Malaysia. By end of 2007 more than 3 million people of the population has benefited with homeopathic treatments.

Council of Homeopathy Malaysia

This council, Majlis Homeopathy Malaysia was first formed in 2000 to unite all homeopathic societies in one body. Five big societies i.e. The Persatuan Pengamal Homeopathy, Persatuan Istisad, Persatuan Bumiputra, Persatuan Homeopathy and Persatuan Doktor Homeopathy set together and set up Majlis Homeopathy. But unfortunately that the ‘official’ in the Council was divert away from the original aim and abuse the power, resulted three of the member society split away. Only two societies left i.e. Persatuan Homeopathy Malaysia and Persatuan Homeopathy Bumiputra and paralyzed the Majlis. This meant that all other homeopathic disassociate and did not recognized such ‘Majlis’ and Majlis by this time is not the sole speaker of homeopathy Malaysia.

Homeopathy and Government Policy

• From Malaysia Independence in 1957 up till 2007, the Homeopathic System of Medicine was adopted and rule a government decree by Medical Act No. 34 / 1971 where by all traditional / complementary medicines are allow to practice provide they are abide by such act.

• Government of Malaysia supported all alternative / complementary medicine under a special unit with Ministry of Health that is called “Unit Traditional and Complementary Medicine or T/CM”

• There are few institution runs homeopathic courses in Malaysia. Even though the government has ‘no official reorganization’ but they did not opposed such further education. Refer letter dated 24th Sept 1986 by Tan Sri Datuk Dr Abdul Khalid bin Sahan, Director of Heath, Ministry of Health Malaysia.

“To The Secretary, The Faculty of Homeopathy Malaysia, This is to inform you that we have no objection to the planning of Faculty of Homeopathy Malaysia, provided the practice is according to Medical Act 34 [1971]

• Now Ministry of Health has set up the code of ethics, code of practice and disciplinary procedures regarding T/CM in Malaysia, such as

• Regarding the practices of Homeopathy & T/CM should be identified by professional nameplates or sign of a size, color and form appropriate to the nature of the area and the location of the practice and bearing the names and qualifications of the T/CM medical practitioners practicing at the premises.

• Practitioners shall comply at all times with the requirements of the code of practice.

• Official acceptance is lacking, but the people has given top priority to the practices and full support for homeopathy and alternative treatment. Private practice is tolerated by the government. By this year Ministry of Health already set up T/CM unit in Government Hospital and first model hospital selected using integrated medicine is at Government Satellite City of Putrajaya where clinics for Acupuncture, Homeopathy and Malay Medicine are operating hand in hand with western medicines.

Teknik Persetubuhan Yang Di Syurkan Dalam Rawatan HTI P 2000

Teknik Persetubuhan Yand Di Syurkan Dalam Rawatan HTI P 2000

Hti P-2000 Dr Nik OmarHomeopathic Threatment of Infertility
Kaedah Setubuh

Keupayaan dan kaedah persetubuhan suami isteri amat penting bagi memberi keseronokan dan kesegaran tubuh badan seseorang insan seperti kaedah kata-kata merangsangkan nafsu seks, bermesra, mengusik alat kelamin suami atau isteri, bercumbu-cumbuan, bercium, berkucupan dan berakhir dengan melakukan hubungan seksual yang intim dan penuh dengan keghairahan cinta kasih sayang.

Jangan sekali-kali beranggapan kaedah ini haram. Jangan mengharamkan benda yang halal. Malah Rasulullah sendiri bercumbu-cumbuan sebelum melakukan jimat dengan isterinya.

Jika anda benar menghayati erti kasih sayang suami isteri, maka bercumbu-cumbuan sebelum mengadakan hubungan seksual amat digalakkan dalam Islam.

Merangsangkan Nafsu Seksual
Suami - Isteri Cara Islam

Hampir sebahagian besar organ-organ manusia mempunyai deria rasa yang amat sensitif bagi lelaki dan wanita untuk menaikan nafsu syahwat masing-masing seperti gesel-geseran badan, raba dibahagian paha, punggung, buah dada, puting susu, leher, , telinga, kening, kaki, betis dan hampir seluruh tempat-tempat lain dibadan.

Bila dua insan lelaki dan wanita bersentuhan, maka secara spontan, mengikut fitrah alam semulajadi, makan keghairahan segera akan timbul.

Bila kemuncak keghairahan, dimana zakar telah tegang sepenuhnya dan si wanita telah bersedia dengan keghairahannya dan setelah dipersetujui makan zakar dimasukkan kedalam faraj secara pelahan-lahan dan cermat agar tidak menimbulkan kesakitan pada wanita.

Sekiranya faraj wanita kekeringan, maka gunakan sedikit air liur, disapu pada kepala zakar dan dimasukkan pelahan-lahan dan sopan. Jika persetubuhan memuncak, dinding-dinding otot-otot faraj dan rahim wanita akan berkembang dan mengucup sewaktu zakar berada didalam faraj.

Sebaik mungkin sewaktu melakukan hubungan seksual, pihak suami harus menarik dan menusuk zakar berulang-ulang kali sehingga si-isteri merasa puas dalam persetubuhan. Pastikan juga geseran zakar anda sewaktu tarik masuk zakar itu harus terkena pada klitoris. Ini akan memberi keghairahan yang memuncak dipihak wanita.

Jika anda tidak gopoh dan tidak gelujoh dalam persetubuhan, anda berdua akan merasakan suatu nikmat persetubuhan yang tidak terhingga yang dianugerahkan oleh Allah swt kepada ummatnya.

Ingat ! Persetubuhan yang gopoh-gapah, gelujoh pasti akan kecewa kerana air mani akan cepat terpancut - pramasa. Ia akan mengecewakan anda dan juga pasangan anda. Tidak mustahil keretakan rumah-tangga juga disebabkan oleh tidak puasnya seks diatas ranjang.

Hubungan Seksual

Dalam kajian kami selama 25 tahun ( 1975 - 2001 ) kami dapati ramai dikalangan suami isteri, boleh dikatakan tidak pandai berasmara atau lebih tepat dikatakan 'Jahil Seks'. Antaranya ialah:

Kesalahan dipihak Lelaki - Suami

· Bersetubuh bukan pada waktu subur
· Suami terlampau cepat pancut airmani / pramasa
· Suami terlampau gelujoh ( gopoh-papah)
· Kurang Bersetubuh ( Malas )
· Melakukan teknik persetubuhan yang salah
· Berputus Asa

Kesalahan di pihak Wanita - Isteri

· Pasif - Malas buat seks
· Frigiditi - Kurang Nafsu Seks
· Tidak ada mood
· Tidak pandai menggoda suami
· Asyik bertengkar dengan suami (nafsu akan padam)
· Faraj / vagina tidak bersih, berbau ( hilang nafsu seks suami)
· Terlampau banyak keputihan atau cairan
· Faraj longgar dan tidak sedap ( tidak ada cengkaman)

Apa Yang Wajib di Jaga Oleh Wanita - Isteri

· 30 - 60 minit sebelum setubuh, pergi kencing dan bersihkan faraj dengan air sirih atau air garam buku ( dalam asli)

· Setelah setubuh, jangan bergerak atau bangun. Terus tidur atau sekurang-kurangnya baring 30 - 60 minit, untuk memberi ruang kepada sperma untuk berenang terus kehujung fallopian tube.

· Jangan sekali-kali cuci faraj selepas setubuh

Apa Yang Wajib Di Amalkan Oleh Suami Isteri

· Lakukan persetubuhan sekerap mungkin

· Lakukan persetubuhan pada tarikh subur ( Hari ke 14 )

· Sebelum pancutan airmani, zakar hendaklah betul-betul tegang dan masukkan zakar 'sedalam' mungkin dan pacutlah airmani dengan laju.

· Lakukan seks dengan gaya dan teknik 'deep penetration' antaranya ialah teknik dari belakang, dimana wanita duduk melutut dan lelaki memasukkan zakar dari arah belakang sambil menarik pinggang isteri rapat kearahnya.(Teknik Tok Janggut), Teknik kedua kaki wanita kenkang keatas dan masukkan zakar yang betul-betul tegang terus kefaraj dari arah depan ( Teknik Che Siti Wan Kembang ) , Teknik lapik bantal dibawah punggung perempuan ( Teknik Puteri Saadong) dan lain-lain gaya yang difikirkan zakar dapat menusuk terus rapat ke hujong rahim.

Mana-mana gaya dan teknik yang menyakitkan isteri hendaklah diketepikan dan tukarkan dengan teknik-teknik lain yang sesuai.

· Selepas pancutan airmani, kekalkan zakar kedalam faraj beberapa ketika, sehingga zakar kecut atau sehingga faraj mengecut kembali.

Nasihat ini ditujukan kepada kedua suami isteri:

Kepada Suami: Berikan nafkah batin mu, mengikut lunas-lunas Islam. Biarlah isteri kamu merasa puas atas nikmat dunia yang dikurniakan Allah swt -

Kepada Isteri : Utamakan keinginan seks suami mu sebaik mungkin. Kehendak nafsu suami mu, WAJIB kamu tunaikan walau diatas unta sekali pun - Hadith Rasulullah swt.

Nota: Jika anda mempunyai masalah, kami sedia membantu.

History of Pakistan Homeopathic Trust Hospital, Lahore

Pakistan Homeopatic Trust Hospital Lahore

It History
To All Students, Lectures & Staffs of
Pakistan Homeopathic Medical College & Homeopathic Trust Hospital

Let be Known to Eveybody
The Past History of Our College.
In order to understand the present, please understand the past.

Hardly a furlong from Duran Road, which is now a road of neglected pavement, magnificent building and improvised, ramshackle huts and hovels, stands a chees-coloured building in Muhammad Nagar, taller than most of its neighbours,with Homeopathic Trust Hospital written large on its front.

This institution is a very good example of what self-help can achieve in the matter of providing free medical treatment to persons of lower-income groups. During the 2 1/2 years of its existence the Homeopathic Trust Hospital has dealt with nearly 50 thousand patients, with daily average of more than 50 visitors ( now more tha 200 ) It was with some prevision of the useful role this institution that on its inauguration in December 1959, Mr Akhter Hussain, a former Governor of West Pakistan, has said during a message,

" In a welfare state provision of free cheap medical treatment in an important and much needed social service, and any voluntary effort in this direction deserves encouragement."

The idea of this hospital actually originated in a prayer in 1953 by a young homeopath, Dr Muhammad Illyas Masood Qureshi, who lay ill and hope of a cure. He prayed that if he ever got well, he would devote himself to the establishment of a hospital, providing free treatment, board and clothing.
The prayer was heard. The young doctor recovered and set about fulfilling his promise.
It was at this juncture that the Homeopathic Stores & Hospital, owned by a doctor father himself a homeopath, understood to finance the noble venture and has all alone defrayed its major expenses. The Homeopathic stores donated 10 % of of their income to the hospital..

The site of the hospital has been acquired at the price of Rs 13,000 in 1954 within a year of the original founder's recovery at a time when finances of the homeopathic hospital were none too good. The period of 1954 to 1959 was marked by formation of a trust called Homeopathic Trust , which now runs the hospital.

Before we cross the threshold it must be mentioned that Homeopathic Trust Hospital was inaugurated by the very August, the late Hazrat Mufti Muhammad Hassan, who for long time directed the destinies of a well known institution for religious instruction in Nila Gumbad, lahore called the Jamia-i-Ashrafia.

The hospital facilities include ground floor space of the building is taken up bu doctor's office, a dispensary, a store room, a waiting hall for out door patients and library, which has a valuable collection of medical books including a liberal contribution by Asia Foundation.

In basement is a specious hall, which divided between a clinical laboratory, ab X ray plants and a go down.

Up stairs, on the first floor are four well furnished family wards, two each for male and female patients Adjoining the ward is a small kitchen.

The present accommodation has been made available at the cost of RS 75,000 and the hospital authorities particularly acknowledge the contribution of a businessman, a refugee from Dalhousie, a a proprietor of a local brick kiln. The former surrendered his property claim for rupee 16,000 in favour of the hospital and the later contributed eleven thousand bricks.

Perhaps the most edifying example of a self sacrifice in this connection is provided by chief mason of the hospital Mr Ali Muhammad, who has donated Rs 1800 in the shape of free service rendered.

At one stage of the construction, Dr Ilyas Masood says, the finance of Homeopathic Trust Hospital were so completely exhausted that he was not in position to pay the bill for two thousand rupees , who has supplied the goods, just couldn't wait. The doctor had never been in such a tight corner before. But when he went home for his meal, for which he had absolutely no appetite under the circumstances, and explained the quandary he was in to his mother, she got up and quietly and retired to her apartment.

And when the old lady returned after a short absence, which has seemed interminable to the waiting son, she produced a small box and on opening it counted exactly three thousand rupees, which more than paid the amount of the bill and saved the situation.......... will continue
