Homeopathy

Homeopathy was developed in Germany as a result of the research of Dr.Samuel Hahnemann (1755-1834), who was an orthodox physician and a chemist.

HOMEOPATHY is based on the use of minute highly diluted doses of plant, mineral and chemical substances that are used to treat the patient’s symptoms.

THE LAW OF SIMILARS Homeopathy is based on the law “that which can cause disease in a large dose will cure it in a minute dilution.”

“Like cures like”. This is the basis on which homeopathic medicines send signals to the body. A remedy, which was effective in healing a particular disease, would produce a similar set of symptoms in a healthy person, when given in sufficient doses.

For example, coffee which in its normal form has a stimulating effect, and can cause palpitations, insomnia, etc. However, in homeopathic doses, coffee has the opposite effect. It calms, and can be used for treating tension and insomnia.

Ironically, the more dilute the dose, the more potent the homeopathic drug becomes.

Although some remedies originally come from a poisonous plant, the homeopathic remedy, prepared by extreme dilution methods, has little to no molecules of the original substance left in the final preparation. The remedy still has potent therapuetic effect and is totally safe to take.

Homeopathy is particularly appropriate for the treatment of children’s illnesses, acute disorders and constitutional conditions.

Homeopathy has also been the treatment of choice for the British Royal Family for several generations.

Homeopathy is taught along with conventional medicine in Germany, and Homeopathic hospitals and outpatient clinics are part of the National Health System in England.
