Homeopathy is a system of medicine that is based on the Law of Similars, which was first described by the German physician, Samuel Hahnemann. 200 years of clinical experience has shown him to be right.
Hahnemann observed that the effects of a medicinal substance given to healthy subjects tended to be mimic there diseases the substance cured. Although these provings in healthy volunteers used large doses of substance, homeopathy uses very dilute preparations and in some cases so dilute that not a single molecule of the original substance can be measured.
Homeopathy works at an energetic level, not as a pharmaceutical that needs a certain dose to bring about cell reactions. Homeopathy attempts to stimulate the body to heal itself. Classical homeopathy matches a particular symptom complex to the correct remedy, and has been used to successfully treat a wide range of acute and chronic illnesses.
