Homeopathy is an alternative form of medicine based on the idea that “same cures same”. This practice holds that natural substances, diluted and agitated, can treat the symptoms of a disease by mimicking the symptoms they cause. Homeopathy originated in Germany in the early 19th century and has since been practiced throughout the world.
Homeopathic medicines are made from a wide variety of substances, from minerals to plants and animals. These substances are repeatedly diluted and shaken to create the “potency” of the drug. According to proponents of homeopathy, this dilution and agitation increases the “vibrational energy” of the substance and makes it a more effective medicine.
In homeopathy, it is believed that the vibrational energy of the substance can cure disease by balancing and strengthening the body’s natural healing system. Homeopaths use an individualized approach to medical care, considering factors such as each patient’s personality, lifestyle habits and individual symptoms when selecting the appropriate medication.
