Homeopathy

Summary

Homeopathy is the branch of medicine that involves a system of practice that treats disease by the administration of minute doses of a remedy. It was developed by Dr. Samuel Hahnemann, a German physician. It is based on the principle that "like cures like". It implies that any substance, which can produce symptoms in a healthy person, can cure similar symptoms in a person who is sick. It prepares individuals for the independent professional practice of homeopathic medicine, a holistic therapeutic system.
