Allopathy Massage Therapy

What is Called Allopathy?

The term “allopathy” is used by some alternative medical practitioners to describe people who practice conventional or “Western” medicine. Because this word was essentially developed as an epithet to insult traditional medical practitioners, it is rare to see regular doctors calling themselves allopaths. Some doctors also reject the use of the term because they feel it is no longer an adequate characterization of the practice of medicine.

The purpose of Allopathy Massage

The purpose of modern medicine is to relieve suffering. This is done by diagnosing the cause of suffering using skilled knowledge of history taking to know about the onset of the problem and also taking the aid of modern techniques and diagnostic tools like X-ray, blood tests, urine tests, etc.

In achieving the goal of healing, a doctor has many aids, like therapeutic drugs, physiotherapy, surgery, psychotherapy, and most important lifestyle reform. As newer machines, techniques and concepts arrive in each field by the speed of light, a doctor needs to keep up to date so that he can use these new additions as a benefit for his patients.

The Founder of Allopathy

Samuel Hahnemann, the founder of homeopathy, coined the term “allopathy.” It is derived from Greek roots, and roughly translates as “opposite suffering.” He used the word to describe the often harsh and sometimes pointless treatments employed by conventional medical practitioners in the 19th century. Many practitioners relied on a theory of “humor” which dated back to the Ancient Greeks, and they believed that medical conditions were characterized by an excess or deficit of particular humor. Bloodletting, cupping, and a variety of other techniques were used to restore the balance of humor, and Hahnemann believed that these practices were barbaric. Hahnemann also wanted to clearly distinguish homeopathy from the more traditional practice of medicine. He argued that allopathy involved treating the symptoms of the disease, rather than the underlying cause of the condition. The goal of allopathic treatment was to produce effects that would counter the symptoms, but not necessarily to get to the root of the problem. Homeopathy, on the other hand, was treatment tailored to the individual patient, with a focus on the whole body, rather than abstract symptoms.
