What is Homeopathy?
Homoeopathy is a science discovered in 1796 by German doctor, Dr. Samuel Hahnemann, a different approach to the cure of sick, which he called "Homoeopathy" (from the Greek words meaning "similar suffering"). Homoeopathy is a science successfully serving the sick, while accepting the challenges of modern lifestyles with changing manifestations and patterns of diseases.
It works on 5 cardinal principles :
Similia Similibus Curenter : A medicine which has the capacity to cause the disease also has capacity to cure the disease. In other words, every homoeopathic medicine is a disease-causing agent if not prescribed correctly or not in confirmation with the principles.
Law of Simplex : One single medicine at a time.
Law of minimum dose : Minimum possible repetition of remedy.
Hering's Law of cure : Mere absence of symptoms does not mean cure. The Signs & Symptoms should disappear in the exactly opposite order of their appearance.
Theory of Drug Dynamisation : Method for preparation of Homoeopathic Medicines.
