Homeopathic medicine is a complete system of medicine founded in the early 19th century by a German physician, Dr. Samuel Hahnemann (1775-1843). Classical homeopathy is based on three main principles: the law of similars, the single medicine, and the minimum dose. The law of similars states that a disease is cured by a medicine that creates symptoms similar to those the patient is experiencing. The principle of the single remedy states that a single medicine should cover all the symptoms the patient is experiencing: mental, emotional, and physical. Finally the minimum dose principle dictates that remedies are given in very infinitesimal diluted dosages.
Homeopathy treats the person holistically, helping the body (or mind) overcome the problem itself, naturally and without chemical intervention. Acute states are a reflection of our underlying susceptability (aquired and inherited predispositions). If you would like to have more information about Homeopathy click on the following links:
