What is Homeopathy?
Homeopathy is a system of medicine used by hundreds of millions of people worldwide. It is particularly effective in treating chronic illnesses that fail to respond to conventional treatment. One of the basic principles of homeopathy is that symptoms are understood not as the disease itself, but as a way in which the body seeks to restore its natural healthy balance. For example, fever is a common symptom of many diseases. It is well known that many infectious organisms and diseased cells are much more vulnerable to heat than healthy cells. Therefore, the body produces a fever in order to destroy the invading organisms. The fever is a symptom of an infection but in itself is not a bad thing, and suppressing the fever inhibits the body's attempt to heal itself.
Homeopathic medicines are derived from plants, minerals and other natural substances. They are prepared by a process of step-by-step repeated dilutions to create molecular release of energy, which makes them capable of stimulating the body's own defense system. Paradoxically, the more they are diluted, the more potent they become. Because the amount of the original substance is reduced to the infinitesimal, they are totally nontoxic.
The father of homeopathy is the German physician Dr. Samuel Hahnemann. In 1796 Dr. Hahnemann discovered that a substance, which causes the symptoms of an illness, when given in a small dose to a sick person, acts as a trigger to intensify the healing process. This principle is defined as the "Law of Similars." This principle is not unknown to conventional medicine, since the theory of immunization is based along these same lines.
