Dr. Cullen mentioned that cinchona bark could cure malaria fever because of its bitter taste. He was totally dissatisfied with the comments of Dr. Cullen as cinchona bark was used since 16 century as gold to remove malaria fever and there are many substances that have bitter taste. To find out the truth, Dr. Samuel took the juices of cinchona bark for few days as the prescribed doses to malaria fever patient. Surprisingly, Dr. Hahnemann received the malaria like symptoms with its allied symptoms and sign without mosquito bites. At first, he thought it was his psychological effects so he tried with same substance with family members but found the same results, again with his colleagues and friends even then same results .For six years he did research of different substances of having medicinal qualities to different age, sex people to test that the substance when given to healthy individual produce sign and symptoms. Finally in 1796 A.D. he concluded that when a substance is given to healthy individual, it can produce signs and symptoms (mentally and physically) on healthy individual. The sign and symptoms which are produced by drug similar to the sign and symptoms of diseased individual then the medicine prepared from that substance is given sick person to make healthy is called as homoeopathic system of medicine. So the medicines of any substance carry cures if it has capability to produce sign and symptoms on healthy individual. This is the only system where the subjective symptoms along with objective symptoms and signs are recorded in book called Homoeopathic Materia Medica after drug proving on healthy individual.
