I have compiled a list of diseases that can be successfully treated, cured with the help of homoeopathy. May be some of the diseases skipped my mind while making this list of diseases. The view expressed in these subsequent article lists are my personal views which were formulated after experience in treating the diseases listed here. In order to formulate first hand impression during my internship I have read almost all the homoeopathic literature. This reading lead me to analyze the old literature and review it in the light of current medical practice. Hence the view of different homoeopath may differ from the ones expressed here. At times it has been proven over a period of time that some cases may fail to yield cure. However, the same cases treated by another homoeopath can be cured completely. Hence if some one has taken treatment from a homoeopath and if it has not yielded cure that does not mean that it is not possible to cure a particular disease. Homoeopathy per se have not failed but the physician’s approach to treat the case has failed. The physician some where may have skipped some important milestone that lead to a failure. Hence it is recommended that it should never be considered that homoeopathy failed in a certain condition, there still has a chance to get cured with another approach to the case.
