Homeopathy is an alternative system of medicine which was founded by a German doctor and chemist by the name Samuel Hahnemann in the 18th century. Homeopathy is based on the Law of Similars which states that ‘like cures like’.
The medicines in homeopathy are called remedies and are derived from natural sources such as plants, animals, and minerals. They are diluted according to standard procedures and techniques until the original substance is no longer detectable.
The foremost principle of homeopathy is that no two persons have the exact same symptoms for a disease. That is why it is not necessary for two people with the exact same condition to receive the exact same medication. The doctor prescribes the drug to each patient based on their body type (constitution) and overall health.
Also, the remedies do not intend to suppress the symptoms but provide cure by activating the body’s own healing mechanisms. So, initially, there might be an aggravation of symptoms in some cases. But, that is only for a small phase, and it is followed by a permanent resolution.
Homeopathic remedies are effective in curing most acute as well as chronic conditions and promoting general health. They are usually given in such small doses that side effects are nil. It is a very personalized treatment and is safe for all to use. That makes homeopathy the most popular type of alternative medicine across the world.
