The Homoeopathic System of Medicine, introduced and developed by Dr. Samuel Hahnemann (1755-1843) is a scientific discipline. It was erected upon a solid edifice of sound and verifiable facts as perceived by Lord Bacon under the principles of Inductive Method of Logic. The body of rules and principles laid down in the Organon requires to be incarnated in every true believer and follower of Dr. Hahnemann. This is possible only if the mind of a neophyte is open from the beginning to the philosophical truths underlying the methods and the principles and when one commits to translate them as the ruling influence of one's life.
Homoeopathy is a science and an art, intimately blended together as one exercise in the form of a scientific art. The art, as I have just mentioned, has its foundation, in the system of scientific principles, doctrines and rules of practice which have been crystallized on very solid foundations and also by undergoing series of critical experimentations after they have been deduced by the technique of inductive logic.

Appropriate application of these fundamentals in the clinical field, constitutes the artistic component of this system. Mind you, homoeopathic practice is not as simple and easy as it overtly looks to be. Mere formal knowledge of the Law of Cure and a cursory technique of prescribing sugar pills does not make a homoeopathic physician in the true sense of the word. It is a fact that today, majority of 'Homoeopaths' are using homoeopathic drugs (sugar pills) on Allopathic principles i.e. symptomatically, because true homoeopathy requires a philosophical bent of mind, a fair quantum of intelligence, time and labour - faculties that are rare to find.

n this context, Dr Kent has written "The man who does these things is a homoeopathic failure." They are incapable of grasping the Homoeopathic doctrines in its-true sense, hence fall in mongrel ism, which is a cross between Homoeopathy and Allopathy. Kent further adds, "I would prefer an allopath, to the one who professes to be a homoeopath, but does not know enough homoeopathy to' practice it."

Today, a majority of the neophytes who are entering in the field of homoeopathic practice, are polypharmacists, using patents, combinations and multiple remedies in order to achieve their objective - relief of symptoms. On this front, Dr Kent says "There are no specifics in homoeopathy, no mixtures and no combinations".
