Many people find the word quaint and think it's something to do with herbs! No! Crude herbal medicines often change symptoms but seldom do they bring cure!
Homeo is Greek for "like", Pathos is Greek for "suffering" so Homeopathy is simply the medical practice of treating "like with like".
The principle was known to Hippocrates and Paracelsus but Samuel Hahnemann, a great Doctor in the 18th century who was disillusioned with the practices of his time discovered that humans have a great capacity for healing themselves and the symptoms of disease reflect the individual's struggle to overcome the forces antagonistic to life. He was appalled by the medical practices of his time, which often did more harm than good and he found that if he could remove the " cause" and stimulate the vital healing force of nature then cure could be effected and this cure was everlasting. Homeopathic medicine can do this. It's quite amazing!!
Hahnemann and his followers carried out experiments or provings over long periods. They took small doses of various poisonous or medical substances carefully noting the symptoms they produced. Patients suffering from similar symptoms were then treated with these substances with very encouraging results and so the Principle of Similarity, the cornerstone of Homeopathy, or "LIKE CURES LIKE" was thus established.
Hahnemann then worked to establish the smallest, most effective dose. This was the best way to avoid side effects. He found a special "mathematical" method of dilution and then used potentisation which gives every remedy its power!
The paradox that less of a substance could be more effective was what achieved remarkable results. The magic of the minimum dose then led to the idea that the patient is treated rather than his labelled disease!
Homeopathy is a dynamic, energetic medicine, it listens and individualises. It is an alternative to potentially harmful drugs with side effects. It stimulates the body's powers of self healing to restore a healthy balance. It is safe-a holistic therapy for all ages whose principle is to treat the underlying cause of the disturbance, not just the symptoms. The remedy prescribed gives the patient a gentle nudge to regain health by stimulating nature's vital forces of recovery. Adequate rest and appropriate diets in a satisfactory environment will obviously support recovery as well. Be very careful what you put into your body because it will have an effect and if it's synthetic and chemical it will have side effects as well.
Homeopathy treats each patient as an individual, looks for what is unique, different or unusual and tailors the prescription to the perceived symptoms. It does not seek to place people in pigeonholes and it is very often able to help people who have found no hope elsewhere!
