What is Homeopathy?
Homeopathy is a complete medical art and science based on the principle of stimulating the innate ability of the body to heal itself.
Established by a German doctor more than 200 years ago, Homeopathy is now widespread throughout Europe, some countries in Asia, Central and South America, Australia, and South Africa. This unique medical art is experiencing an explosive resurgence in the United States as part of the progressive movement toward alternative medicine.
The homoeopathic method of treating disease is based on the Law of Similars. The word ‘homoeopathy’ is derived from the Greek ‘homoios’ meaning similar and ‘pathos’ meaning ‘suffering’ – i.e.: similar suffering. The Law of Similars simply means that a substance which creates symptoms in a healthy person, will cure a sick person with similar symptoms. For example homeopathic remedy made of bee venom will treat symptoms similar to a bee sting with its redness, heat, and swelling, which often happens during allergic reactions or conjunctivitis. Or a remedy made of coffee may relax and bring peace of mind to an over strung person with insomnia.
Homeopathy is often confused with herbs and other alternative treatments. However, it is a very different innovative medical system that helps cure the disease, not just the symptoms. The symptoms that people suffer are mere warning signals from the body indicating that something is out of balance. Conventional medicine leads the war against these symptoms: anti-inflammatory, anti-spasmodic, anti-histamine, anti-depressant. Homeopathy addresses the routing cause of the disturbance.
