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.
