Tuberculinum / Tub

Formal Name: Tuberculinum Koch / T. Bovum

Also Known As: Tuberculinum, Tuberculosis

This is one instance where the world of homeopathy shook up the mainstream medical field. As many of us know, the illness tuberculosis was a terrible and deadly epidemic.

It became hard to find a cure for tuberculosis until the world of homeopathy stepped in and produced a cure.

Tuberculosis was found to be treated and prevented by administering a small amount of the dead tuberculosis bacteria.

Though this may have sounded strange in that time period, it worked and therefore formed the basis for how homeopathic remedies work.

In the case of tuberculinum, bacteria from infected tissue is sterilized, dissolved in purified water, diluted, and then succussed.

This preparation is crucial as it ensures that there is no trace of the actual illness.

The idea that like cures like is the foundation of the homeopathic belief and after the success of homeopathic remedies on tuberculosis, this belief grew and gained notoriety.

This is the how homeopathy came to be what it is today, and shows that with the right preparation and an open mind, a natural cure may be your best bet.
