Different Strokes

Did you know 10% of India uses homeopathy exclusively to treat illness? Homeopathic Medicine is the 3rd largest of the government's 7 medical departments. Since arriving 200 years ago with German missionaries it's become the favorite among the poor because it's cheap, convenient and free of side effects. Today even the wealthy view it as a fashionable and effective method of treatment.
