Allopathic Medicine

Allopathic medicine is the usual, conventional system of medicine;  it is oriented to prescribing material doses of drugs to deal with patient's symptoms;  the therapeutic intention is, arguably, not cure.  But it has great utility in dealing with emergencies, chronic conditions, and situations where the uncertainty of non-conventional treatment is unacceptable.

Dr. Samuel Hahnemann in his seminal work on homeopathy , “The Organon of Medicine”, wrote:

“The physician’s highest calling, his only calling, is to make sick people healthy - to heal, as it is termed.”

“The highest ideal of therapy is to restore health rapidly, gently, permanently; to remove and destroy the whole disease in the shortest, surest, least harmful way, according to clearly comprehensible principles”.  I follow this dictum in my practice of allopathic medicine as well.

I  practice allopathic medicine when I consider it in the best interest of the patient.  And there are conditions where allopathic treatment is the best treatment - and follows Hahnemann’s dictum as well.
