Homeopathy is a system of medicine that treats diseased individuals on the basis of using medicinal substances capable of producing similar changes in the health of a person as that of the diseased person. The term Homoeopathy is derived from the Greek words - homoios, meaning similar, and pathos, mean suffering. Homoeopathy is based on the principle - like cures like. Dr. Samuel Hahnemann, the founder of homeopathy, himself an allopathic doctor (M.D.). Homeopathy was established it in the late 18th and early 19th century by Dr. Samuel Hahnemann. He realised his own school of medicine (allopathy) wasnt helping the patients and spent years researching on homeopathy. The basic principles of Homeopathy are: -
a. A substance that causes symptoms in a healthy person can be used to treat these symptoms when they occur in an ill person.
b. Diluting the homeopathic medicine increases it collative powers and avoids unwanted side-effects.
c. Homeopathy treats the whole person and not just the illness. The totality of the symptoms is considered: Your complete symptom profile is taken into account, including mental, emotional, and physical aspects.
d. Like cures like: Substances that produce symptoms when given in large doses can clear up those symptoms when the substances are given in micro-doses.

e. A single remedy is given: One homeopathic medicine is chosen to perfectly match the totality of your symptoms.
f. A minimum of doses is given: Only a small stimulus is needed to stimulate your innate healing powers.
