Homeopathic Medicine

What is Homeopathy?

It is a system of medicine founded in the early 19th century by a German physician, Dr. Samuel Christian Hahnemann (1775-1843). Classical Homeopathy rests on three principles:

  • The law of similars states that the abnormal symptoms in a person’s body is cured by a remedy that creates symptoms similar to those the patient is experiencing. Hence, an important part of the prescription of a homeopathic remedy is a lengthy interview to determine all the symptoms. The homeopathic practitioner then prescribes the remedy that best matches the symptoms.
  • The principle of the single remedy states that a single remedy should cover all the symptoms the patient is experiencing: mental, emotional and physical.
  • The principle of the minimum dose has two parts. First, the homeopathic practitioner prescribes only a small number of doses of the homeopathic remedy and waits to see what effect the remedy has. Second, the remedy is given in an infinitesimal dose.
