Full Definition Of Homeopathy

Homeopathy is the use of minute amounts of animal, plant and mineral substances to stimulate the body to heal itself. It is based on the belief that a vital force animates all living things. Sickness is an imbalance in this vital force. Homeopathic remedies are chosen that magnify the current condition within the body. The vital force responds by perceiving the imbalance and restoring the body to health. So, unlike western or allopathic medicine, it is not the medicine that reduces symptoms, but the vital force.

The efficacy of homeopathy rests with matching the specific modalities of the illness or injury with those of the remedy. Generally if the remedy does not work it is because the remedy given did not closely match the symptoms. For this reason homeopathic prescribing involves extensive questioning and observation. Constitutional treatment addresses long-term conditions and should only be undertaken by professionals. Acute treatment refers to situations that arise rapidly and generally resolve on their own – homeopathy can speed their resolution.
