Homeopathy, or homeopathic medicine, is the practice of medicine that embraces a holistic, natural approach to the treatment of the sick. It is based on the Law of Similars or ‘Let likes be cured by likes:’
The same remedy which causes a set of symptoms in a healthy person will cure those same symptoms in a sick person when given in a very small dose.
Homeopathy is holistic because it treats the person as a whole mentally, emotionally and physically, rather than focusing on a diseased part or a labeled sickness. Homeopathy is natural because its remedies are produced according to the U.S. FDA-recognized Homeopathic Pharmacopoeia of the United States from natural sources, whether vegetable, mineral, or animal in nature.
