Home Homeopathy

Updated on March 14, 2011

What is Homeopathy? Samuel Hahnemann (1755-1843) the founder of homeopathy was disappointed with the medical practices of his time and through great efforts developed a medical system that stimulates the body´s own healing power to re-establish health.

“Similia Similibus Curantor”

There are two ways of treating illness that became a law established by the Greek physician Hippocrates in the 4th century BC. One by opposites “Allos” the other one by similars “Homeos”.

Samuel Hahnemann, following one of those laws, The Law of Similars or Like Cures Like, he followed and researched that if a given remedy is administered repeatedly to healthy person and that person develops a illness then, any

person suffering originally from that illness should be given that same remedy to help the body cure itself.

Every single living being has what is called Vital Energy or Aura that surrounds our bodies and it vibrates, it leaves us when we die, what the founder of homeopathy did here is through administering a determined remedy to a sick person, that same remedy will stimulate the body´s own healing ability to re-establish the correct vibration of Vital Energy in that same person bringing back his good health.

Polychrestic remedies that are so called are the group of 12 or 16 remedies that are mostly used in treating the ailments that affect us in our every day, keeping in mind that this remedy group can be tailored to meet the family’s requirements.
