What it is
Homoeopathy (also Homeopathy) is a system of alternative medicine, first proposed by the German physician Samuel Hahnemann in 1796.
It is based on the Law of Similars or the principle Like cures like. (Greek hómoios- ὅμοιος- "like-" páthos πάθος "suffering".)
For example: The effects of a bee sting (stinging, burning, sharp pains, swelling) can be relieved by a Homoeopathic remedy Apis mellifica, which is prepared from the poison of the honey bee.
Efficacy and Safety
Homoeopathic remedies are ultra dilutions. Medicinal substances (plant, animal and mineral) are subject to physical processes whereby they are ground or agitated so that their particles are greatly reduced in size; this serves not only to dilute them a great deal but also activates their inner healing energy. In the Homoeopathic system the more dilute the medicines the more potent it is, and medicines are diluted to a degree where they become extremely potent but completely free from side effects.
Depth of Healing
Homoeopathic medicines being energy based, they act on the vital energy of the human being. This vital energy or Vital Force is responsible for controlling and maintaining all the organ systems of the body harmoniously. The remedy energy acts upon and stimulates this controlling energy into action to restore health. Cure at this level is holistic and permanent.
