Correct Answer : Option (A) - April 10th

Note :

April 10th is observed as World Homeopathy Day across the globe. The day highlights the importance of a field of medicine and its ability in eradicating some of the tough-nut-to-crack ailments. The day is also celebrated to commemorate the birth anniversary of Dr Christian Friedrich Samuel Hahnemann. Hahnemann, born in Paris in 1755, founded this branch of medicine and is considered the father of Homeopathy.
 
Hahnemann, after being dissatisfied with the state of medicine during his time, decided to let go of his practice. According to him, the medicine he practiced did more harm to the patient than good. As a result, Hahnemann, after years of research, laid down the foundation of the doctrine called ‘Similia Similibus Curentur,’or ‘like cures like.’ And thus, Homeopathy was born.
 
WORLD HOMEOPATHY DAY 2022 THEME : This year, the theme for World Homeopathy Day 2022 in India is ‘People’s Choice For Wellness.’ The theme, like every year, is decided by the Ministry of AYUSH. On this day, a documentary made on Homeopathy, its benefits, and its contribution to medicine, will be released, in addition to multiple book releases.
