A graduate in Homoeopathic Medicine from the Pakistan Central Homoeopathic Medical College, Karachi, Dr. Ahmad Fakir Muhammad brings in over 18 years' experience in the application of homeopathic methodology and therapeutics to a wide array of complicated medical problems.
His years as a student saw him migrate from one homoeopathic medical college to another in search of the best in homeopathy. His first year was with King Fahad Homoeopathic Medical College, Karachi. The prescribed course of study included Physics, Chemistry, Biology, Pharmacy, Anatomy, Homoeopathic Materia Medica and Homoeopathic Philosophy (Principles of Homeopathy). His second year was with St. John Homoeopathic Medical College, Karachi. The course of study consisted of: Hygiene, Physiology, Homoeopathic Materia Medica and Homoeopathic Philosophy. The remaining two years were with Pakistan Central Homoeopathic Medical College for Men. The prescribed course of studies had the following subjects: Pathology Part I & II, Psychology, Minor surgery, Comparative Materia Medica, Homoeopathic Philosophy, Case-taking and Repertorization.
He has written on several subjects with main interest remaining focused on presenting homeopathy the way it is and not the way it is being depicted. The development and launching of this website is a step in that direction. The contents of the website not only reflect his thinking about how homoeopathy should be approached and practiced but also his concern over the growing nihilism in the practice of homoeopathy. Comparing his early writings such as "The Homoeopathic System" and "Defending Homoeopathy" (1991) to his more recent ones such as "Putting Homoeopathic Education On the Right Track" (2001), one finds a common streak - the need to promote homoeopathy along right lines in Pakistan - running through all his writings.
He is highly critical of the quasi-homoeopaths and the homoeopathic pharmaceutical companies who advertise their services and products through the print and electronic media with misleading claims to "cure" everything under the sun. According to Dr. Fakir, a true homoeopath must know his limits and be able to clearly discern whether a case would improve under homoeopathy or not. True to his words, wherever he feels, homeopathy may not benefit the patient; he makes it known to the patient or his/her relatives in a very kind way. When in doubt about the suitability of homeopathy in a certain case, he takes the patient into confidence, saying the second consultation would be useless if no change for better is noticed within a certain period.
