Homeopathy in New York has a long history. In fact, the New York State Medical Society was barred from the AMA in 1862 and not allowed back until 1906. This was because many of New York's most prominent physicians at the time were also homeopaths. The AMA had made it unethical for conventional doctors to consult with homeopaths, and the New York Medical Society rejected the rule.

Homeopathy in New York and Other Urban Areas in the 19th Century

Homeopathy in New York and other urban areas especially, enjoyed widespread popularity in the 19th century. Again its popularity is growing in the 21st century as patients seek alternative ways of healing their diseases without drugs. In fact, the seal of the New York Medical College contains a picture of the founder of homeopathy, Dr. Samuel Hahnemann.

This is because the New York Medical College was once known as the New York Homeopathic Medical College! Believe it, because it is true. You may just be learning about homeopathic remedies, but in truth it is not a new science.

Of course, if you are searching for complementary or alternative practitioners, there is more to medicine than homeopathy in New York. In fact the city enjoys a wide variety of alternative choices, including homeopathy, acupuncture, hypnosis, ayurvedic medicine, Chinese medicine, and herbal remedies.
