As described by Dr Bill Wolfe:
Homeopathy is a system of healing developed around 1800 by a German physician, Dr. Samuel Hahnemann.
It is a therapy based on the practice of treating ‘like with like’ in accordance with the energetic principles of healing, utilizing ‘remedies’ made from plants, minerals, or animal products.
These remedies are prepared by a process of repeated dilution and succussion called ‘potentization’, which renders the remedies capable of stimulating the body’s natural healing forces of recovery. The treatment is not directed at removing symptoms or killing germs, but rather toward strengthening the person, so that his or her own healing capacities function better.
A system of healing
Homeopathy is a system of healing that seeks to cure illness in accordance with certain principles of healing, utilizing “remedies made from plants, minerals, or animal products.” These remedies are prepared by a process of repeated dilution and shaking, which renders them capable of stimulating the healing process. The treatment is not directed at removing symptoms or killing germs but, rather, toward strengthening the person so that his or her own healing capacities function better.
Homeopathy discovers the essence of disease through the symptom syndrome, or the totality of the mental, emotional, and physical symptoms expressed by the patient. By means of the totality of symptoms, the homeopathic practitioner treats the patient as a whole rather than treating the disease in its localized expression. Therefore, the cause rather than the effect is being treated.’
