What is Homeopathy?

Homeopathy is a form of alternative care that works based upon the idea that like cures like.

Homeopathy has been studied for hundreds of years and originated when Dr. Samuel Hahnemann, a German chemist and physician, researched the law of similars; the idea that a condition could be treated with the same substance that initially causes the symptoms.

How Homeopathy Works

Homeopathy involves taking substances and diluting them until almost none or very little of the original substance remains. Homeopathic formulas are a dilution of one or more plant, mineral or animal substances.

The substances are diluted until a very small amount or none of the original substance remains. Weaker dilutions are considered to be more powerful. Homeopathy also operates on the principle of the single remedy and the principle of the minimum dose.

Homeopathy is a belief that a single ingredient should help all symptoms a person is experiencing and that the smallest dose possible will be the most effective.

Conditions Homeopathy May Improve

Homeopathic remedies are used for a variety of conditions including allergies, atopic dermatitis, rheumatoid arthritis, irritable bowel syndrome, minor injuries and muscle strains.
