Simply Homeopathy

A Brief History of Homeopathy…

Homeopathy has been called “the original alternative medicine,” yet it is neither an herbal medicine nor a dietary regimen. This form of medicine was discovered over two hundred years ago by Dr. Samuel Hahnemann, a chemist and personal physician to the German royal family. Disillusioned with the medical practices of his time, Hahnemann stumbled across written studies that demonstrated the principles of the law of similars. Through this principle he found a gentle means of stimulating the body’s innate healing ability and coined the term “homeopathy” from the Latin words homoion (similar) and pathein (disease, suffering). “Let like be cured with like,” was Hahnemann’s philosophy.

How Does Homeopathy Work?

Homeopathy works based upon the law of similar: like cures like. A homeopathic remedy is simply a dilution of one or several plant, mineral, or animal substances. The substances are diluted until either none or very little of the original substance remains. It is important to note that in homeopathy the energetic signal, rather than the substance, is considered to have the healing effect. Remarkably, the weakest dilutions are considered the be the most potent, as they are designed to work at a deep cellular level.

The application of homeopathic principle is similar in some ways to vaccination, although it is a very different process. When ingested, the homeopathic remedy signals the body to elicit its natural immune response, leading towards internal balance and the restoration of health.

For example, poison ivy creates rashes and itching, but when the elements of poison ivy are prepared and administered as a homeopathic remedy, they can help the body overcome the same symptoms – like cures like.
