Homeopathy is 200 years old medical system, developed by German physician, Samuel Hahnemann. It is a holistic medical approach, which treats the root cause of illnesses, by gently stimulating the individual’s own healing ability by reinforcing the body’s natural defense. Healing is triggered by potentized diluted natural substances (homeopathic medicine). The selection of the medicine is highly individual and designed to treat the whole person.
Homeopathy is based on the principle of “Law of Similars” and on the principle of “Like Cures Like”. This means a homeopathic medicine is chosen to match the pattern of symptoms that are characteristic to the person with the illness.
Like cures like means, that if a substance can cause symptoms of disease in a healthy person, then it can cure a sick person suffering from similar symptoms.
The best example to demonstrate the principle of like cures like is to look at the symptoms of hay fever, such as runny nose and teary eyes, which are similar to the symptoms of a person who is chopping onion. This person could be treated with a homeopathic medicine (Allium Cepa) prepared from red onion.
About Homeopathic Remedy
Homeopathic remedies are highly diluted and succussed (vigorously shaken) natural medicines, prepared from natural substances (e.g. plants, minerals).
Each remedy is carefully prepared according to Hahnemann’s defined pharmaceutical principles.
