Mahatma Gandhi – thoughts about Homeopathy

Nominated 5 times for a Nobel Peace Prize between 1937-1948, Mahatma Gandhi had a few things to say about Homeopathy:

“Homeopathy is the latest and refined method of treating patients economically and non-violently. Government must encourage and patronize it in our country. Late Dr. Hahnemann was a man of superior intellectual power and means of saving of human life having a unique medical nerve. I bow before his skill and the Herculean and humanitarian labour he did. His memory wakes us again and you are to follow him, but the opponents hate the existence of the principles and practice of homeopathy which in reality cures a larger percentage of cases than any other method of treatment and it is beyond all doubt safer and more economical and the most complete medical science.”       August 30 1936
