In 1810 Dr. Samuel Hahnemann, a practicing German doctor, had discovered homeopathy.
Homeopathy has been in practice in North America since the 19th Century. It is the second most popular system of medicine, according to the World Health Organization (WHO).
In the United States of America during the nineteenth century, there were 100 hospitals and 22 medical colleges which used homeopathy exclusively , and during this time, many orthodox doctors practiced homeopathy .
One of these hospitals was The Hahnemann University Hospital, established in 1885 in Philadelphia, PA which had treated thousands of patients with homeopathy alone. Today the Hahnemann University Hospital still serves patients as a hospital and medical university, where patients receive traditional medical care.
Currently, homeopathy is practiced in U.S.A., Europe, India and Africa, as a system of medicine. In Europe and India, there are private hospitals which run modern diagnostics and use homeopathic medicines to treat various ailments. Recently in Canada, the province of Ontario has started to regulate the practice of homeopathy.
