Homeopathy is medical science which has its foundations based on nature’s laws ,founded and followed by regulating certain fixed principles by Dr.Samuel Hahnemann. Homeopathy is a complete medical science in comparison to other systems of medical science. But, because of the little less awareness in Homeopathy , people tend to know its scope.
Homeopathy has vast scope to cure the medical illnesses of mankind. Homeopathy does not consider individual diseases to be treated and it works on restoring the complete health of the sick person. But for the general understanding, Homeopaths use the word diseases for easy comprehension to the public.
The diseases are normally classified as Acute diseases, Sub-acute diseases and Chronic diseases. Homeopathy has medicines to treat all these types of diseases. Some of the known acute diseases which homeopathy has best treatment are; Viral fevers, Typhoid, Malaria, Dengue, Chikungunya, Gastroenteritis, Amoebiasis, Headaches, Allergy conditions, Sinusitis, Rhinitis, Urinary tract Infections, etc., among others.

Another aspect of Homeopathic medicines which is not known as the scope of homeopathy ,is its usefulness in the prevention of spread of diseases. Homeopathy has a philosophy of Homeoprophylaxis, which implies, homeopathic medicines act as preventive medicines in epidemic and pandemic times. The homeopathic medicine(s) is selected based on the prevalent symptoms across the region and the same medicine is given to the population of that locality which helps in preventing the spread of epidemic and pandemic disease(s).
The most beautiful part of Homeopathy and its scope in the service of mankind is its ability to give relief in diseases which are regarded as end-stage diseases and left uncured. Homeopathic medicines provide palliation to such patients whose health does not seem to recover in spite of all the efforts. Palliation is giving temporary relief from the awful suffering the end-stage diseases patients have to undergo.
In all, the scope of Homeopathy is largely unknown to the people but its efficacy and service to the sufferings of the human beings with regards to health is unparalleled when compared to conventional and other medical sciences.
