What is homeopathy?

Homeopathy is an empirical and holistic system of medicine. It was founded by Dr. Samuel Hahnemann over 200 years ago. In homeopathic treatment, "potentised" remedies of botanical, animal and mineral origin are used. They are tested on healthy volunteers. The medicines are prescribed individually on the basis of the principle of similars (Similia similibus curentur - Let likes be treated by likes).

The British Royal family, John D. Rockefeller Snr., Yehudi Menuhin, J. W. Goethe, Mother Teresa, Tina Turner, Pope John Paul II and Bill Clinton have one thing in common their strong belief in and support for homeopathy. This is for one reason: homeopathy is a very safe and efficient system of treatment. Homeopathy is not only a method of treatment, but much more: it is a holistic empirical therapeutic system.

Homeopathic theory perceives the human being as an indivisible union of the psychological and physical. Homeopathy distinguishes itself from other treatment approaches by its holistic effect on the organism. A single remedy can work on all levels and thus have a homeostatic effect (establish order and balance) on the whole organism. It heals a patient diagnosed with several illnesses by treating all at the same time.

Homeopathy has a broad therapeutic basis in exhaustive literature presenting all clinical situations and algorhythms of treatment. The beauty of this therapeutic system is its timelessness - the foundations do not change since they have proved their validity over two centuries of treating millions of patients all over the world. The same remedies used successfully in homeopathy 200 years ago are still used today (new ones are constantly being added, but the ones used in the 19th century remain as the basis).




I suppose it can happen that a homeopathic doctor makes a mistake and prescribes a wrong remedy which produces certain symptoms of illness. Can this produce an additional illness i.e. cause further disorder in my body?

We say that there can only be a wrong treatment and not a wrong prescription of a remedy. Treatment can be started with various remedies; however a homeopathic doctor always selects just the one which he/she considers the most suitable at that moment. Depending on his/her response, the patient can later be treated with the same remedy, with the same or different potency and/or dosage, or with another remedy (see also About homeopathy, Course of treatment).
