Start > Resource centre > Articles > Homeopathy What is it? Part 6

There is a mistaken idea quite commonly held that the homeopathic physician does not believe in operations. It is not a matter of belief, but of knowledge and experience. It is true that on occasions homeopathic treatment may be successful where, generally speaking, surgery would be regarded as the only possible treatment. If the disease process has got to a stage when it is not reversible, but where surgery could help the patient, the homeopathic physician would not hesitate to ask for the surgeon's aid. Even in surgical cases homeopathic treatment, both before and after operation can be most helpful.

Is this homeopathic treatment a newfangled idea? By no means. It was first suggested by a famous Greek physician, Hippocrates, who lived 460 to 370 before the Christian era. It was, however, not put into practice, so far as is known, until a very distinguished physician, chemist and linguist, Samuel Hahnemann, as a result of some very prolonged and interesting experiments, developed and practised it, at first in Germany and then in France. That was about 150 years ago. It has been practised in this country by a minority of doctors for nearly the same number of years, and the chief homeopathic hospital in Great Britain celebrated its centenary in 1949. It is also practised in very many other countries throughout the world.
