What is Homoeopathy?
Homoeopathy is a healing art that is more than 200 years old. Based on principles espoused by Hippocrates himself, homeopathy works on the principle of "like cures like". The term homeopathy comes from two words—"homeo" meaning like and "pathos" meaning suffering. The German, Samuel Hahnemann (1755 - 1843), a physician by training, proved to be a lifelong lover of learning. A trained medical physician, he discovered, while still relatively young in the profession, that a certain Peruvian bark, used for the cure of malaria, would, in a healthy person, actually produce the same symptoms that were caused by this disease. Intrigued by this concept, he began what became a lifetime pursuit, researching further into plant, animal, and mineral substances, documenting what these would produce in a healthy person. Being a scientist, he also knew the need to also test these substances on sick people. So he began the study of symptoms produced by disease, so that when a similarity was found, a cure of an afflicted person would result. This proved to be a challenge to the established medical profession-- because it worked. A safe, gentle, and effective cure was being proven again and again. And research continuing today continues to confirm that it works.
While engaged in his research, Hahnemann also learned the healing power actually increased when the substance was diluted and then succussed, or shaken. This is known as potentization. And Hahnemann quickly found that the more a substance was diluted and succussed, the more powerful it became. Gentle, yet powerful healing on an energetic level with energetic substances is Homeopathy. Homeopathic remedies are nontoxic and will not interfere with any current medications you may be taking. It is energetic healing that is enabled with homeopathy—which helps your body do what I firmly believe it was Divinely designed to do, and that is to heal itself.
