What is Homeopathy
Over 200 hundred years ago, a German doctor and chemist, named Samuel Hahnemann, developed a system of medicine which we now call homeopathy. He discovered that by diluting and vigorously shaking a substance which occurs naturally in the plant, mineral and animal kingdom, which would cause discomfort, disease or poisoning in its natural form, would somehow change its molecular or cellular information to produce a cure thereby proving the principle of the law of similar's or like cures like.
Homeopathic remedies are known by their Latin names, for example, coffee is a stimulant but Coffea as a homeopathic remedy can be helpful to some people experiencing insomnia. Chopping onions can make our eyes water and nose run, so using homeopathic red onion - Allium cepa can be helpful to treat colds and hay fever where the main symptoms are watery eyes and a runny nose. And Sulphur which is a product of volcanic eruption is widely used to treat skin disorders.
While science has yet to explain exactly how homeopathic medicines work on the body and mind, laboratory experiments suggest the ultrahigh dilutions do have biological effects.
