ISWAR CHANDRA VIDYASAGAR’S THOUGHT ON HOMOEOPATHIC TREATMENT IN NINETEENTH CENTURY BENGAL

Abstract:
Iswar Chandra Vidyasagar was a famous educationist and a social reformer. He was one of the biggest supporters of the Homoeopathy medical system. Dr. Rajendralal Dutta and Dr. Mahendralal Sarkar were famous Homoeopathy physicians. In the beginning, they had no faith in Homoeopathy treatment. Once, a difference of views arises between Vidyasagar and Mahendralal Sarkar about Homoeopathic treatment. But in the end, Mahendralal accepted Vidyasagar’s view. When Burdwan district was struck by malaria, Rajendralal Dutta applied Homoeopathy treatment. In Karmatar, Vidyasagar loved to be with Santhals in his last life. Vidyasagar applied Homoeopathy treatment there. Homoeopathy was a better type of treatment at low cost and less setback. Vidyasagar collected many books for treating with Homoeopathy. Mahendralal and Vidyasagar became progressive spokes persons for practitioners of homeopathy. Vidyasagar himself was suffering from many diseases like asthma. He felt healthy by the Homoeopathy medical system. Vidyasagar established free Homoeopath clinics in many places. Sometimes he would treat himself. So Vidyasagar became a ‘Physician Vidyasagar’. This article brings to fore the role of Vidyasagar from a different angle – a practitioner and a believer of the Homoeopathy medical system
