Homeopathic Cures

Homeopathy is a system of alternative medicine, notable for its controversial practice of prescribing water-based solutions that in many cases do not contain chemically active ingredients.

Homeopathy calls for treating “like with like”, a doctrine referred to as the law of similars. The practitioner considers the totality of symptoms of a given case, then chooses a remedy that has been reported in a homeopathic proving to produce a similar set of symptoms in healthy subjects.

This remedy is usually given in extremely low concentrations prepared according to a procedure known as potentisation, because it is held that this process gives higher dilutions more therapeutic power.
