A LITTLE ABOUT HOMEOPATHY
IN A LAYMAN'S TERMS

  • Homeopathy is a therapeutic medical science, which is based on the notion that substances able to cause certain symptoms in a healthy person can, in turn, heal those same symptoms in a sick person.

  • This system was developed by Samuel Hahnemann towards the end of the 18th century, based on the understanding that healing comes from within, from the body’s innate self-healing forces. These forces are to be stimulated by certain substances that would actually cause respective disease if given in a high doses; intending to heal an illness with its equal substance.

  • Homeopathy is the practice of the use of active ingredients in minute dosages along with naturally occurring substances in order to provide a healthier balance of internal chemistry.

  • Homeopathy is based upon the principle that 'like cures like' — that is, the same substance that in large doses produces the symptoms of an illness cures it when administered in very small doses.

  • Homeopathy comes from the Greek words "homeo" meaning similar and "pathos" meaning disease or suffering; hence, the reason for calling homeopathy the "law of similars.
