Homeopathic Treatments

Homeopathy is a very sophisticated method of stimulating the body’s own energies to cure illness. The principles of this science are based on the fact that healing only occurs in accordance with the laws of nature. Founded by Samuel Hahnemann in the early eighteen hundreds, homeopathy is derived from the Greek word “omeos” meaning similar and “pathos” which means suffering. The translation: “To treat with something that produces an effect similar to the suffering.”

History

The story goes that a number of physicians experimented extensively upon themselves by ingesting drugs and keeping detailed records of the symptoms each produced. They then correlated this information with a list of accidental poisonings documented by different doctors in different countries, through centuries of medical history. Amazingly enough, the identical symptomatologies of many illnesses were revealed.

Medicines were then tried on patients who manifest similar symptoms, and a historical discovery was made: substances that evoke symptoms in a healthy person, cure those same symptoms in a sick person… even to the point of remedying so-called “incurable” diseases.

Hahnemann has been compared alongside such giants of discovery as Einstein, Newton, and Hypocrites.
