Homeopathy

Homeopathy has been used worldwide for over two hundred years. Homeopathy was first developed in the late 1700s by Dr. Samuel Hahnemann, a physician who felt the medical procedures of his time were doing more harm than good. He based homeopathy on 'like cures like', an ancient principle used for centuries in different forms of healing.

Homeopathic remedies consist of hundreds of substances found in the natural world. These include plants, minerals and metals, which in large amounts or if used in raw form could cause adverse reactions. Hahnemann believed that if he diluted and potentized the substance he could release its energy in a safe and non-toxic manner.

A remedy is made into different strengths or potencies depending on how many times it is diluted and struck against an immovable object. This is either done by hand or with a machine.

Homeopathy treats not the 'dis-ease' of the body but rather the symptoms of expression.

A good beginner's book is The Family Guide to Homeopathy by Dr. Andrew Lockie, or anything by Miranda Castro. +++
