جگر (Liver) کی اہمیت کسی بھی اہم جسمانی عضو (دل، دماغ، گردے وغیرہ) سے کم نہیں۔ نظامِ ہاضمہ کو اِعتدال میں رکھنے کا یہ نہایت ہی اہم عضو ہے۔ اس کا کمال یہ ہے کہ جسم کو نقصان پہنچانے والے مواد اپنے اندر جمع کرتا ہے؛ اس مواد سے صفراء پیدا کرتا ہے اور اسے پِتہ (Gallbladder) کے ذریعے معدہ میں پہنچاتا ہے جہاں یہ غذا کو ہضم کرنے میں مدد دیتا ہے۔ یہ بڑا مضبوط اور قوی عضو ہے مگر انتہائی بد پرہیزی اور موروثی بیماریوں سے متاثر ہو کر اِس کے خراب ہونے کا اِمکان رہتا ہے۔

Homeopathy is a therapeutic system of medicine which is based upon the principle of similars - like cures like – it means that a substance that can cause certain symptoms in a healthy person can cure similar symptoms in an unhealthy person. Homeopathy aims to aid and stimulate the body’s own defense and immune processes. Homeopathic medicines are derived from a variety of plants, animal materials and minerals. These medicines are prescribed to fit each individual’s needs, given in much smaller and less toxic doses than traditional medications, and are used for both prevention and treatment. Established 200 years ago by German physician Samuel Hahneman, and is recognized by the World Health Organization as the second largest therapeutic system in the world.
Homeopathy is a system of medicine, which was discovered and developed by a German allopathic physician, Dr. Samuel Hahnemann, between 1792 and 1842.
The then prevalent system of medicine was not at all scientific (in its modern read more [...]
After prescribing the remedy, the physician shall very carefully observe his patient in every respect;
his general condition,
aggravations and amelioration of symptoms,
any change in the symptoms or in the patient himself, etc.
After giving the medicine to the patient if the physician's observation is a prolonged aggravation and final decline of the patient, the case is incurable.
The Second observation is, the long aggravation, but final and slow improvement. It is a hopeful case with prolonged repetition of the same remedy at longer intervals. For many years you may go along with prolonged aggravations followed by amelioration untill an outward manifestation appears whereby the patient will attain final recovery.
The Third observation after administering the remedy is, quick aggravation, short and strong with rapid improvement of the patient. Whenever you find an aggravation comes quickly, is short, and has been more or less vigorous, then you will find improvement of the patient will be long, the structural changes many appear in the surface organ, and with the passage of time the surface organs regain their natural structure after they read more [...]
There is an overall impression that homeopathy is used today by millions of people and practiced by hundreds of thousands of practitioners all over the world … which is true! Whether the practitioners are capable of using this new force in medicine in an appropriate way is a totally different story. The homeopathic field of medicine is so open to all kind of interventions, distortions and bad practice that its original form is almost totally masked or lost and its effectiveness reduced to a mere 10% of its capabilities. This minimal 10% derives mainly from a small group of practitioners that have followed the original teachings of S. Hahnemann and the right lines of applications. The effect of those practitioners in their private practice is near 70-80% of success. These practitioners were recognised as classical homeopaths, but soon a lot of intruders attached to their name this qualification in order to confuse the public and get a portion of the clientele.
Though Homeopathy’s overall effectiveness is low due to its bad application by most of its practitioners, in the minds of the people it has been established as a form of medicine that is better and more effective than conventional read more [...]
