Homeopathy Past and Present

Homeopathy in Mexico 2010

The author, homeopath and historian, presents the current state of homeopathy in Mexico, including schools, hospitals, organization, journals etc.

Summary

Homeopathic medicine has been recognized in Mexico since 1896. Actually, it is more popular every year. We have two schools that grant the M. D. degree, five post graduates schools, and two homeopathic hospitals in our country. Since February 2002 the LMHI (Liga Medicorum) National Vice President has worked on a committee with the Secretary of Health to create legislation around the teaching of homeopathic medicine in Mexico. The LMHI minimum basic program for teaching homeopathy in America, is now the guide for this committee. In this committee, fifteen school programs for Master Degrees and postgraduate studies, covering the basic requirements of teaching Homoeopathic medicine, have been approved.

The Ministry of Health has also taken steps regarding the planning of new hospitals and health institutions, to be used by homeopathic physicians. The National Homoeopathic Hospital, now under reconstruction, is guided by the General Direction of Coordination and Development of the Federal Hospital of Reference, and it is the core of a pilot plan for installing doctor’s offices in the hospitals of the Ministry of Health. At present, homoeopathic doctor’s offices now operate successfully in three large hospitals in Mexico City: “Manuel G. González Hospital”, “General Hospital”, and “Juárez Hospital”.
