This modality was developed in Germany and shares philosophies with Ayurveda, Aristotle, and Hippocrates, that ‘like treats like’. Homeopathy triggers the body’s natural defenses and uses the law of similars. Through diluted botanical and mineral remedies in the forms of tablets, liquids, powder, or creams, it stimulates the body's healing ability to cure itself. It is believed that the lower the dose of medication, the greater its efficacy. In other words, a substance taken in small amounts will cure the same symptoms it causes if taken in large amounts. Lifestyle, medical history, current symptoms, and state of mind are discussed in detail before prescribing medicine.
