History of Homeopathy

Origins of Homeopathy

The history of homeopathy originated in Germany and is now widely practiced throughout the world. It conforms to a law of healing known as the ‘law of similars’ or ‘like cures like’. This law of healing was formally established and developed by Samuel Hahnemann, a German physician who lived between 1764 and 1843.

Homeopathy is a holistic treatment used by over 200 million people worldwide to treat both acute and chronic conditions. It is based on the principle of ‘like cures like’ – in other words, a substance taken in small amounts will cure the same symptoms it causes if it was taken in large amounts.

Homeopathy is a low-cost, non-toxic system of medicine and is particularly effective in treating chronic illnesses that fail to respond to conventional treatment, and is also a superb method of care for minor conditions such as the common cold and flu. It is a system based on principles that have not changed for nearly 200 years. This consistency in adhering to healing principles has allowed homeopathy to establish itself as one of the most integrated, complete systems of healing.

How Does Homeopathy Work

Homeopathic medicines are manufactured using a process combining serial dilution and succussion (vigorous shaking). because they are natural and in such dilutions they can be perfectly safe to use for babies, children and pregnant or breastfeeding women, who are under the supervision of a medically-qualified practitioner.

This form of treatment gently nudges the body toward a healthier state. Homeopathic remedies neither cover up nor destroy diseases by themselves, rather they stimulate the body’s own natural defences to rid it of the disease. Homeopathic remedies are completely safe as they do not cause adverse side effects as many pharmaceutical drugs can.
