Like cures Like
Homeopathy follows the law of similars which states that a medicine can cure a sick person if it can cause similar sickness in a healthy person. For instance, if you have symptoms of runny nose, watery eyes and sneezing during a cold or allergy attack, a homeopathic micro-dose of the remedy Allium cepa (red onion) would help your body heal itself.
Homeopathic medicine is more effective upon each additional dilution. Hence, homeopaths use ultra dilute “micro” doses that drastically increase the safety profile of the medicines.
No Side Effects
We all know that normal medicines can cause side effects, leading to much suffering or even death. In an effort to prevent side effects, Hahnemann, the founder of Homeopathy, began successive dilution with the agitation of his medicines, to find the point at which they would be therapeutic, but not toxic. By achieving such a minute level of dose that there is barely any side effect, homeopathy has become a safe and gentle method of cure.
Homeopathic treatment is tailored to each person. Practitioners select medicines according to a total picture of the patient, including not only physical symptoms but also lifestyle, emotional and mental states, etc.
