This subject is primarily aimed at those who wish to pursue a career in complementary medicine or Homoeopathy. It can however be read by anyone wanting to more about the approach and justification taken by complementary medicine practitioners, specifically Homoeopaths. Whether you are an orthodox medical practitioner, or know someone being treated with Homoeopathy, you may be curious to know why Homoeopaths do what they do.
This subject therefore covers the history of complementary medicine and Homoeopathy, and their underpinning principles. You will learn about how this approach has developed over time, key contributors, and its place in our current medical system. A comparison is drawn with orthodox medicine, enabling you to see the advantages and disadvantages of each model, the challenges faced by each, and how they can work together.
