What is Homeopathic Medicine?
Homeopathy is a medicine that is based on the law of similars. Samuel Hahnemann a German physician who lived between 1755 through 1843, founded this therapeutic method after studying the history of medicine. He brought together two Greek roots, homoios meaning “similar” and pathos meaning “disease.” Homeopathy treats sick people with remedies that in crude doses would produce in healthy people symptoms similar to those of the disease needing to be overcome.
