What is homeopathy?

Homeopathy is a system of therapeutics in which the medicines are used to stimulate the body to heal itself.

The medicines used inhomeopathy are mainly derived from the natural world.the plant, mineral and animal kingdoms.

Today. homeopathy is used worldwide. It is estimated that more than 500 million people receive homeopathy treatment in a year.

Like Cures Like

Homeopathy is founded by German physician, Dr. Samuel Hahnemann (1755-1843). The word homeopathy is derived from the Greek words homoios, meaning similar and pathos meaning suffering. In homeopathy, symptoms are viewed as the attempt to heal itself and cure is accomplished by giving the homeopathic medicine producing symptoms similar to the patient’s symptoms. In other words, inducing the similar suffering stimulates and reinforces the person’s self-healing capacity and results in cure

The Minimum Doses

Because homeopathic medicines stimulate a self-healing mechanism, doctors use the smallest possible doses. In series of experiments, Hahnemann discovered that medicines are still effective in concentrations that are too small to be detected chemically, and the mechanical shaking of diluted medicines actually enhances their healing effects. The minuteness of the dose makes it unlikely that any side effects will occur.

Treating Man As a Whole

The Homeopathic doctor regards disease as a disturbance of the spirit or the Life Force. And so in taking your case the doctor will look for symptoms in your body and also give equal importance to your nature, your feeling, your dreams, etc. Since the aim is to understand each person as an individual, the physician looks for things that are most individualistic of people.

Then the doctor tries to find one homeopathic medicine that matches the patient in his physical symptoms and in his mental make-up. It is like finding the right key to a lock. Any lock can only be opened by one particular key. To a very large extent the homeopathic prescription depends on the details of the history that the patient gives. If the exact homeopathic remedy is administered the results can be quite amazing.
