What Is Homeopathy?
It isn’t herbal supplements, it isn’t vitamins, it isn’t magic.
Homeopathy, possibly the world’s fastest growing form of health care, is a form of medicine that has been part of the public healthcare systems of many nations and in use for over 200 years.
It was first used by physician Samuel Hahnemann when he became frustrated with the medical practices of his day (the late 1700s). He realized that things like bloodletting often did more harm than good, and gave up his medical practice to research and correct errors in medicine. He began reading and conducting studies on the principles of the Law of Similars.
At its simplest, homeopathy stimulates the body’s innate healing ability.
