Homeopathy is a method of treatment that is effective in treating a wide varity of disorders of the body. This method is based on a pharmacological law called the “Law of Similars“.
This “law” was presented to the world in 1796 by Samuel Hahnemann, a German physician. He described it in this manner:
“Any substance that produces specific toxic symptoms in a healthy person when given in its full strength form, will cure a sick person with those same symptoms when given in a very diluted, minute form.”
The philosophy accompanying this method of treatment sees illness as the manifestation of a complex defense mechanism at work in the body. This defense system was called the Vital Force by Hahnemann. Homeopathic treatment aims at strengthening and redirecting the vital force to restore health safely without side-effects.
