Article about Homeopathy and SriMadbhagvatam

Here is an article about homeopathy...

From the article mentions that...

Homeopathic practice is based on a single law of therapeutics called the *Law of Similars*. This law states that *a substance that can cause the symptoms of a disease can also cure it*.

There is something similar in SriMadbhagvatam

आमयो यश्च भूतानां जायते येन सुव्रत
तदेव ह्यामयं द्रव्यं न पुनाति चिकित्सितम् |

This is from the fifth chapter of the first cento. And this verse would literally translate as ....

Whichever disease is caused in the living beings, by a given substance --
does that very substance, when therapeutically prepared, not cure that very disease.

IMHO - Isn't is nice to see that our age old traditional sayings or scriptures have a lot of signigicance?
