What is Homeopathy

Homeopathy is 220 years old natural medicine system. It is the second largest system in the world used by over 500 million people worldwide.

Homeopathy is a holistic medicine which uses specially prepared, highly diluted substances (given mainly in tablet form) with the aim of triggering the body’s own healing mechanisms. It is based on the principle of treating “like with like”. This principle dates back to Hippocrates (460-377BC) but in its current form, homeopathy has been widely used worldwide for more than 200 years. A homeopath will prescribe medicines according to the patient’s specific set of symptoms, and how they experience them, taking into account their overall level of health.

Homeopathy was discovered by a German doctor, Samuel Hahnemann, who was looking for a way to reduce the damaging side effects associated with the medical treatment of his day. He began experimenting on himself and a group of healthy volunteers, giving smaller and smaller medicinal doses, the medicines became more effective as the doses were lowered.

Hahnemann went on to document his work, and his texts formed the foundations of homeopathic medicine as it is practiced today. A BBC Radio 4 documentary aired in December 2010 described Hahnemann as a medical pioneer who worked tirelessly to improve medical practice, insisting that medicines were tested before use.
