Homeopathy

Want to know a little bit more about Homeopathy?

Homeopathy was discovered by a German physician, Samuel Hahnemann, in XVIII century.

Hahnemann became disillusioned by the medical practices of his time (leeches, bloodletting, mercury salves) and so became interested in the healing properties of nature. Having experimented with different substances, he came to the same conclusion as Hippocrates before him; Similia Similibus Curentur (Like Cures Like) became the foundation principle of the new method of treatment, which Hahnemann called Homeopathy.

The term Homeopathy is derived from Greek words homeo (similar) and pathos (suffering or disease). Homeopathy is thus the practice of treating syndromes and conditions that constitute disease, with remedies that produced similar symptoms in healthy subjects (none of the homeopathic remedies are tested on animals).
