What is it?
Homeopathy was founded by Samual Hahnemann in the late eighteenth century. It is use commonly in European and Indian hospitals. The word homeopathy is derived from the Greek word homeo or “similar” and pathos or “suffering”. Homeopathic remedies are potentized medicine from animal, mineral or plant substances. They are highly dilute and work on an energetic level having a profound effect. The philosophy is based on the the principle that like cures like. In other words, giving a highly dilute amount of a substance, can cure the symptoms that would be produced from a large amount of the same substance. A person’s symptom picture matches a remedy picture and hence stimulates the bodies innate healing response to eliminate the symptoms.
