What is homeopathy?
Homeopathy is a form of alternative medicine. It was first created by Samuel Hahnemann (1755-1843), a German physician who grew tired of the medicine of his time. He argued that the medical practices doctors were utilising did as much harm as they did good. The idea behind homeopathy, is that a substance that can cause symptoms of disease in a healthy person can cure that exact disease in people with illness. A homeopath must also take into consideration a patient’s life history, including physical and psychological state. This allows the homeopath to select a remedy based on the totality of symptoms and personal traits.
