Homeopath - Classical Homeopathy:
"The basic principle of Homeopathic treatment:
that the symptoms that a person experiences can be cured by a substance that would cause the same symptoms if given to a healthy person."
"Like cures like"
Homeopathy is a system that attempts to stimulate the body to heal itself.
All symptoms, no matter how uncomfortable they are, represent the body's attempt to restore itself to health. So instead of trying to dry up the runny nose from a cold with antihistamines, a homeopath would use a remedy that will stimulate the body to move in the direction it is already going, and, in the process, clear the runny nose!
It is a system that looks at individuals and not at diseases.
Dr Samual Hahnemann (1755 - 1843) is considered to have been the first person to formulate the laws and philosophy of Homeopathy. Hahnemann discovered many of the core remedies used today, which were sufficient to ensure that his medicine was thoroughly established, eventually publishing his book; "The Organon," which is still considered as the bible for modern practitioners.
