Homeopathy and herbology.

Although homeopathy and herbology (herbal remedies) are often confused with each other, they are actually quite distinct from each other. Although some herbs are used in the preparation of homeopathic remedies the mechanisms by which they are meant to work are different. In fact, they are the opposite of each other.

The fact that many companies provide both herbal and homeopathic remedies under the same brand name only adds to this confusion.
