What is Homeopathy?

Homeopathy (also spelled homoeopathy or homeopathy) is a holistic treatment, encouraging the patient's own healing capabilities by giving minute doses of a specific substance in order to bring about a safe, effective and gentle cure.

The basic principle of homeopathy, known as the law of similars, is „let like be cured by like” was originally developed by German physician, Samuel Hahnemann, in 1796. „Remedies” are prepared by serial dilution with shaking which homeopaths term succession. Each dilution followed by succession is assumed to increase the effectiveness. Homeopaths call this process potentization. Dilution often continues until none of the original substance remains. Apart from the symptoms, homeopaths examine aspects of the patient's physical and psychological state, then homeopathic reference books known as repertories are consulted, and a „remedy” is selected based on the totality of symptoms.
