A system of healthcare based on the laws of similars and the concept that a patient can be cured with highly diluted doses of a substance that, when given to a healthy person, induces the same symptoms.
Homeopathy works by gently stimulating an individual’s vital force to facilitate the body’s own defense mechanism.
Vital force is a kind of innate wisdom, or energy force and is why homeopathy is considered an energy medicine.
Some homeopaths are proud of how scientific homeopathy is and see it as an art and an intuitive healing system that science will never explain.
Unlike allopathic medicine, homeopathy addresses physical, emotion, and mental levels of health.
Homeopathic remedies are made from many things including plants, minerals, animals, and even chemical drugs.
Remedies are highly diluted to the point where there is no trace of any molecules of the original substance.
Some consider homeopathic remedies to be no more than placebo. However, clinical studies show how homeopathy works on animals, infants, and unconscious people and therefore disproves that theory.
From the late 1800’s until the early 1900’s homeopathy schools and hospitals were all over America. One out of every 5 doctors was a homeopath.
