Homeopathy

Homeopathy is the art and the science of curative the sick by using substances competent of causing the same symptoms, syndromes and conditions when administered to healthy people. Homeopathy is an ultimate therapeutic medium for self-medication of symptoms allied with self-limiting conditions as the selection of the proper remedy for the case is reliant on the symptoms that the body exhibits in its reaction to the illness. Homoeopaths treat disease using very low dose measures administered according to the principle that "like should be cured with like”.

Principles of Homeopathy

Homeopathy has a philosophy of its own and its therapeutics is based on certain fundamental principles.

• Law of Similia
• Law of Simplex
• Law of Minimum
• Doctrine of Drug Proving
• Theory of Chronic Disease
• Theory of Vital Force
• Doctrine of Drug-Dynamisation

Any substance may be deliberated as a homeopathic medicine if it has known "homeopathic proving" and known effects which mimic the symptoms, syndromes which it is administered to treat, and is manufactured according to the specifications of the Homeopathic Pharmacopoeia of the United States (HPUS) and official homeopathic drugs have been monographed for inclusion in this HPUS. Classical homeopathy is generally defined as a system of medical treatment based on the use of minute quantities of remedies that in larger doses produce effects similar to those of the disease being treated.

Homeopathic remedies are derived from plants, animals, minerals, metals, acids, alkalis, venoms and diseased human tissue, but while considering the enormity of remedies in daily use are derived from plants. In fact, homeopaths took over the pharmacopoeia of the herbalist in many countries and cultures, even though homeopathic medicines do not be similar to herbal medicines. The fundamental understanding of disease is significantly different; therefore, the fundamental approach to prescribing is significantly different. Medical knowledge is needed to assess complex or serious conditions. Professional diagnostic tests may be necessary as well.
