Homeopathy is a healing system founded on the principle that “like is cured by like”. Also known as the Law of Similars. In the early 1800s it was discovered that when giving some herb or substance to sick individuals, it induced healing. But when giving the same substance to a healthy body, it produced a mild form of the previous disease. By inducing a very mild reaction to this disease process, this stimulated the body’s healing mechanism. And therefore this induced stimulation actually enhanced recovery from disease all by using the body’s own natural processes.
Homeopathic remedies make use of very small doses of these natural substances. So that we are not inducing disease – only a stimulation toward rebalance. Also, because remedies are given in such greatly diluted forms, the treatment accelerates natural healing with little to no side effects.
