In 1974, Homeopathy Department started functioning as an independent department from the Department of Ayurveda in Kerala. Homoeopathy is a system of alternative medicine created in 1796 by Samuel Hahnemann of Germany. Approved in over 60 countries of the world,as a simple, scientific, cost effective therapeutic method, Homoeopathy is gaining momentum in many parts of the world.
Homoeopathy gives importance to the physical as well as mental symptoms of the patient. According to the concept of Homoeopathy, each individual is different from another. The choice of homeopathic medicine is mainly based on this doctrine of Individualization. Over 75% of Homeopathic medicinesare made from herbs. Medicines are prepared also from animals, pathological residues, minerals, and energy sources.
Homeopathic practice was started in Calcutta, Bengal and in Kottayam, Kerala in 1900. On 31.05.1946, The Travancore Medical Council requested the Government to set up a Homeopathy Government Hospital for Children. In 1957, the EMS Government decided to start a Homoeo dispensary in the government level. Homeopathy Dispensary started functioning on 21.02.1959 for the first time in the state of Kerala at East Fort, Thiruvananthapuram and today it serves as a 100-bed hospital.
In 1961, a Homoeo dispensary was established at Velliyaamattam Idukki. New homeopathic institutions have been allocated for Idukki District in subsequent years. During 2008-09, NRHM Homoeo Dispensaries were also allotted with the help of the Government of India (NRHM). Today, all the LSGs in Idukki haveat least one Homoeopathy institution. There are 38 Govt. dispensaries, 24 NHM Dispensaries, 2 SCP Dispensaries, 2 Mobile Dispensaries and 7 Peripheral OPs providing the services of the Department of Homoeopathy across the district. Along with the above institutions, 2 hospitals with 25 beds each are also functioning in the district. The District Medical Store also has been sanctioned in 2017. The District Medical Office- Homoeo, which regulates the institutions, started functioning at Thodupuzha in the year 1991.
