Homeopathy is a system of healing that has been around since the mid 1700’s. It was invented by a physician, named Samuel Hahnemann when he became disillusioned by the toxicity of treatment that were being used during his time. As a medical historian he learned an old way of treating in which the immune system is supported rather than suppressed, which happens with a lot of our modern medicine. Homeopathy gained a huge acceptance in the medical community and many larger universities, such as the University of Michigan, added a homeopathic medical school. Homeopathy saw its decline when antibiotics where invented; when compared side-by-side antibiotics are more effective in curing acute cases then homeopathies. As a result funding for homeopathic medical schools dried up and the practice nearly dried up as a result. Over the last 20 years homeopathy has regained its popularity as people are recognizing the benefits that it offers.
