Homeopathy is a form of alternative medicine that treats patients with heavily diluted preparations that are thought to cause effects similar to the symptoms presented. It is a system of medicine that is based on the Law of Similars. Homeopathy
inventor Samuel Hahnemann described this principle by using a Latin phrase: Similia Similibus Curentur, which translates: "Let likes cure likes." It is a principle that has been known for centuries. Hahnemann developed the principle into a system of
medicine called homeopathy, and it has been used successfully for the last 200 years.
Homeopathic medicines are drug products made by homeopathic pharmacies in accordance with the processes described in the Homeopathic Pharmacopoeia of the United States the official manufacturing manual recognized by the FDA.
MADE FOM PLANTS
The substances may be made from plants such as aconite, sodium chloride; from animals such as the venom of a number of poisonous snakes, or the ink of the cuttlefish; or even from
chemical drugs such as penicillin or streptomycin. These substances are diluted carefully until little of the original remains.
Homeopathy is fairly common in some countries while being uncommon in others; is highly regulated in some countries and mostly unregulated in others. It is practiced worldwide and professional qualifications and licenses are needed in most
countries. Regulations vary in Europe depending on the country. In some countries, there are no specific legal regulations concerning the use of homeopathy, while in others, licenses or degrees in conventional medicine from accredited universities
are required. The Indian Government promotes Homeopathy officially; homeopaths are considered medical professionals in India, and as a result, medical doctors are sometimes referred to as allopaths, and medical science as "Allopathy".
