LOPEZ GONZALEZ, Idania; PEREZ GONZALEZ, Minerva  y  ARTILES LOPEZ, Linet. Homeopathy as a therapeutic modality in America: a necessary historical look back. EDUMECENTRO [online]. 2016, vol.8, suppl.1, pp.74-86. ISSN 2077-2874.

Through out the current article it is carried out an analysis of the historical pertinence of the employment of Homeopathy in different countries of the American continent, with appreciable data that appear since the XIX century in Cuba. At present it is considered that millions of people are assisted every year with homeopathic products even in developed nations. The authors expect to specify the importance of this modality of the Herbal and Folk Medicine for the GPs of the Primary Health Care in their community work, since this is the only specialist that integrally assists to the family with a clinical-epidemic approach. Homeopathy offers them the possibility to treat the family in a holistic way and it allows them to improve life quality in their patients.
