After 25yrs’ of constant practice he was disillusioned , with the harmful side effects of Allopathic medicines , where permanent cure eluded in many cases. , when used even for minor ailments . Hence , he invented remedies derived from Natural sources , various flora , fauna , roots and shoots etc. With extensive clinical research , experiments and meticulous recording of observations and results , he laid down some fundamental principles for alternative treatments and formulated compositions , which were easily dispensable , gentle on human organs and biology , harmless and curative , known as Homeopathy.
