Doctor Samuel Hahnemann (1755-1843) understood pandemics. He and his followers have successfully treated many pandemics, even in recent times. Governments from India and Brazil to Cuba are using homeopathy to prevent Covid-19. Hahnemann’s discovery of the law of cure and an essential but overlooked aspect of Jenner’s smallpox vaccine (the first vaccine in medical history) explain why a vaccine against SRS-Cov-2 is not a panacea for Covid-19.

These articles reassess Hahnemann’s contribution to medicine vis-a-vis modern genetics, criticism of homeopathy by some in the medical profession, the assault on our autonomy with mandatory vaccination, ‘corporeal appropriation’ by government and the questionable ethics of the pharmaceutical industry.

Victor Hugo said, ‘Nothing is more powerful than an idea whose time has come’. The time has now come to reconsider Hahnemann’s contribution to medicine ‘for the sake of suffering humanity’.
