The period of Vedic medicine lasted until about 800 bc Ayurveda, a natural system of medicine, originated in India more than 3,000 years ago.

Founded in the late 18th century by a German physician, Samuel Hahnemann, it is coined from the terms “homoios”, which in Greek means similar and “pathos”, which means suffering, referring to the principle of the ‘law of similars’ that is the basis of the treatment in homeopathy.

A healthy or unhealthy lifestyle will most likely be transmitted across generations. According to the study done by Case et al. (2002), when a 0-3-year-old child has a mother who practices a healthy lifestyle, this child will be 27% more likely to become healthy and adopt the same lifestyle. For instance, high income parents are more likely to eat more fruit and vegetables, have time to exercise, and provide the best living condition to their children. On the other hand, low-income parents are more likely to participate in unhealthy activities such as smoking to help them release poverty-related stress and depression. Parents are the first teacher for every child. Everything that parents do will be very likely transferred to their children through the learning process.
