WHAW 2016 theme is “Homeopathy as Preventive Medicine”

Preventive Medicine, also called as Prophylaxis is based on the Principle: Like Prevents Like
A remedy that is given in advance of illness will prevent the disease it will cure [1].
Benjamin Franklin said ‘An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure’?

Preventive use of homeopathy was first applied in 1799 during an epidemic of scarlet fever in Königslütter, Germany, when Dr. Hahnemann prescribed a single dose of Belladona, as the remedy of the epidemic genius to susceptible children in the town with more than 95% success rate. In 1860, it was recommended as the treatment of choice in the National Dispensatory, which stated: “As long as persons are under the influence of belladonna the liability to contract scarlatina is very much diminished.” [2]

It was another 125 years before Gladys Henry and George Frederick developed a vaccine for scarlet fever in 1924.

Apart from Nosodes and constitutional medicine, some examples of specific prophylactics are: Euphrasia taken for conjunctivitis and Pulsitilla for Measles.
