World Homeopathy Day - 10 April.

Every year on April 10th, World Homeopathy Day honors the memory of Dr. Christian Friedrich Samuel Hahnemann, the founder of homeopathy. The day also challenges understanding and strategies that will further develop homeopathy.

Homeopathy comes from the Greek words homeo, which means similar, and pathos, which means suffering or disease. This alternative form of medicine believes “like cures like.” In other words, the ingredients that induce symptoms of the said illness cure the disease. For example, red onions are known to make the eyes water. For this reason, homeopathy uses red onion as an ingredient in allergy remedies.

Dr. Christian Friedrich Samuel Hahnemann, a physician born in Germany in 1755, is known as the founder of homeopathy. The word “homeopathy” first appeared in print in 1807. Over 200 years later, the World Homeopathy Awareness Organization created World Homeopathy Awareness Week from April 10th to April 16th. World Homeopathy Day kicks off the week on April 10th, which is Dr. Hahnemann’s birthday.

The theme for 2022 World Homeopathy Day is "People's Choice for Wellness"
