Homeopathy is a system of alternative medicine that was introduced in the early nineteenth century by a German physician,
Samuel Christian Hahnemann, who was dissatisfied with contemporary medical treatments.
Today homeopathy is found in almost every country. In Europe 40% of French physicians use homeopathy; 40% of Dutch;
37% of British and 20% of German physicians use homeopathy. It is also becoming more and more popular in the United States.
Supporters of homeopathy include the British royal family, Johann Wolfgang Goethe, Mahatma Gandhi, Mother Teresa, Mark Twain, O. J. Simpson, Yehudi Menuhin, and Angela Lansbury.
However, serious questions exist as to whether homeopathy is effective in treating any diseases or ailments.
Dr. Mahlon Wagner has lectured and written extensively on various alternative health treatments including chiropractic, homeopathy and therapeutic touch. Dr. Wagner is a Professor Emeritus from the State University of New York at Oswego.
