What Is Homeopathy
Homeopathy, also known as homeopathic medicine, is an alternative medical system that was developed in Germany more than 200 years ago.
Homeopathy is a treatment based on the use of highly diluted substances, which practitioners believe can cause the body to heal itself.
Homeopathy is a complementary or alternative medicine (CAM). This means that homeopathy is different in important ways from treatments that are part of conventional western medicine.
Homeopathy is a system of medicine which involves treating the individual with highly diluted substances, given mainly in tablet form, with the aim of triggering the body’s natural system of healing. Based on their specific symptoms, a homeopath will match the most appropriate medicine to each patient.
Like with like
Homeopathy is based on the principle that you can treat ‘like with like’, that is, a substance which causes symptoms when taken in large doses, can be used in small amounts to treat those same symptoms. For example, drinking too much coffee can cause sleeplessness and agitation, so according to this principle, when made into a homeopathic medicine, it could be used to treat people with these symptoms. This concept is sometimes used in conventional medicine, for example, the stimulant Ritalin is used to treat patients with ADHD, or small doses of allergens such as pollen are sometimes used to de-sensitise allergic patients. However, one major difference with homeopathic medicines is that substances are used in ultra high dilutions, which makes them non-toxic.
Want To Try Homeopathy, Where Should You Start?
The first step is educating yourself as much as possible about homeopathy– learn the best treatments, dosages, and side effects from trusted websites, which are hard to find. Beware of scammers who sell a homeopathic “cure” that isn’t more effective than innocuous snake oil.
