Homeopathy: A Brief History

Posted: Updated:

This slideshow presents a brief overview of the history of homeopathic medicine in the United States. Homeopathy was formulated by a German physician more than 200 years ago and came to America in 1825. At its peak there were 22 homeopathic medical schools and more than 100 homeopathic hospitals in the U.S. Homeopathy in America experienced a decline in the mid-1900s and has made a strong resurgence since the 1970s.

Most of the images here are from postcards and old homeopathic medical texts that were printed from the mid-1800s to early 1900s.
