What is homeopathy?

Homeopathy is a system of medicine which involves treating the person with highly diluted substances, usually given in tablet or liquid form, with the aim of triggering the body's natural system of healing. Based on the way each person is experiencing their symptoms a homeopath will match the most appropriate medicine to each patient


Homeopathy is based on the principle that 'like' can be treated with 'like'. That means that a substance which causes symptoms in large doses can be used in small amounts to treat the same symptoms.

Think about the effects of large amounts of strong coffee, that wired, restless feeling can also be found in some cases of sleeplessness.

A homeopath could use coffea, a homeopathic medicine made from coffee to help with such symptoms.
