Use of the homeopathic
method in Bulgaria is related to the name
of Dr. Georgi Valkov Mirkovich (1828 â€“
1905). Hi accepted Hahnemannâ€™s ideas,
that during the healing of a disease only
a single remedy is to be prescribed, because
â€śthe practice to mix more remedies is
contrary to the common senseâ€ť( G. Mirkovich
- 1993,6). With this position he became
the founder of Classical Homeopathy in
Bulgaria, giving priority to the homeopathic
method of healing before the allopathic
one and adducing comparative data concerning
the death rate percentage when both methods
of healing have been applied for different
diseases. In his point, in terms of Homeopathy
there was a need for combining the supervision
on the disease properties with the experience
related to the features of the remedies.
The main art necessary for successful
application of the homeopathic method
â€śis to cleverly arrange the characteristics
and properties of the disease in a complex;
on that complex are depending both the
correct choice of a remedy and the successful
healing itself.â€ť(G. Mirkovich - 1993,16).
As a start of the Classical Homeopathy
development in Bulgaria could be taken
the year 1992 when a group of Bulgarian
enthusiasts lead by Dr.
Petar Najdenov established
relations with the London College of Classical
Homeopathy in the person of Peter
Chappell, Head of the International
Department. The first Classical Homeopathy
course carried by English lecturers began.
In 1994, the Homeopathic Society was established
and it continues developing its activity
up to the present. The Society aims include
studying, developing and applying Classical
Homeopathy as a healing and preventive
method. The Homeopathic Society is working
in close cooperation with both the London
