Allopathic medicine is the usual, conventional system of medicine; it is oriented to prescribing material doses of drugs to deal with patients symptoms; the therapeutic intention is, arguably, not cure. But it has great utility is 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.
