World Homeopathy Day is celebrated every year on 10th April in memory of Dr. Hahnemann, the founder of Homoeopathy. Dr. Christian Friedrich Samuel Hahnemann was a German physician, who was known for creating the pseudoscientific system of alternative medicine called homeopathy.

According to Dr. Hahnemann, a kind of energy is generated by the vibrations of the active ingredients present in homeopathic medicine, which traditionally occur, this energy destroys the disease. Homeopaths, however, achieve restoration of health by administering a highly diluted remedy, made from a substance that in its natural state would cause the inflicting symptoms in a healthy person.
