Homeopathy is a 200 year old well-established system of medicine based on unchanging principles. The basic principle is LIKE CURES LIKE. A substance that causes specific symptoms when taken in its raw form will alleviate those same symptoms when taken in its homeopathic form. Rather than focusing on the disease and trying to combat it, as is the case with conventional medicines, homeopathy works to encourage the body's natural healing mechanism.
The substances used in homeopathic remedies come from various plant, mineral and animal sources. Most have been used for centuries, yet discovery and development in homeopathy is an ongoing process.
Besides being completely natural many homeopathic remedies can be self administered and are available in over the counter form. Most importantly, all homeopathics are free from harmful side effects.
