How does homeopathy work?
The word homeopathy comes from the Greek "homoios" that means "similar", and "pathos" that means "illness" or "suffering". Homeopathy is based on the principle that "Like cures like" which is the theory that a substance that can cause certain symptoms in a healthy person, can cure a person who is sick with similar symptoms.
German physician Samuel Hahnemann (1755-1834) developed this principle into a system of medicine called Homeopathy, and it has been used successfully for more then 200 years all over the world. The more then 200 years of research and clinical experience have confirmed homeopathy"s effectiveness.
