General about homeopathy

Homeos = similar; pathos = ailment/disease

This method of treatment and life philosophy was founded some two centuries ago by Dr. Samuel Hahnemann.
The principle of homeopathic treatment is based on the law of similaris which determines that a particular substance, while capable of causing certain phenomena and symptoms in healthy people, when administered as a medication can also heal those symptoms in patients suffering from an ailment or phenomenon with identical characteristics.
The homeopathic method of healing treats the root of the ailment and not just the symptoms.

The choice of homeopathic medication is made on an individual basis. There is no universally applicable remedy for all ailments, such as a headache pill, or drug for asthma.

The homeopath treats a person and views him or her as a single unit, addressing physical and spiritual phenomena alike. Homeopathic remedies are not based on chemical substances derived or changed in terms of their chemical composition, rather they are substances which have been diluted and stirred and whose function is to stimulate the body’s natural defense and healing mechanisms.
After administering a homeopathic remedy, the symptoms sometimes intensify for a while, and then the patient begins to feel better.
Homeopathic remedies are made of herbs, salts, metals, toxins, and animal and human discharges which are derived in a particular, non-toxic, way.

The patient must provide as many details as possible about the ailment, physical and spiritual symptoms, behavioral attributes, dietary habits and important life events, such as infectious and other diseases, wounds, operations, and various hereditary and genetic diseases, as well as treatments and medications previously administered.

There are several methods of homeopathic treatment:
The classic method: in which the homeopath administers a single dose of a single remedy, and treatment is normally completed in one session.
The French method: only one type of remedy is administered, but it is taken several times a day, and sometimes a number of remedies are taken several times a day.
The mixture method: this method involves the administering a “cocktail” of several substances and remedies produced by different companies with precise treatments recommended for each specific ailment.
