Homeopathy, another reference system

Bottles of Homeopathy Globules

If one wants to understand the basics of homeopathy, it is necessary to forget what one knows about medicines in order to change the reading grid.

Indeed, unlike 'classic' medicine, called allopathic (from the Greek 'allos' = different) which obeys the law of opposites – we use an “anti something”: antibiotics, anti-inflammatories, painkillers, etc. – to 'to cut' a symptom, in homeopathy (from the Greek 'homoios' = similar) the opposite principle applies, that of similarity.

The law of similarity rests on the following observation: if a substance in high doses can cause a series of symptoms, this same substance, if administered in infinitesimal doses, can cure these same symptoms.

This law, already observed by Hippocrates in antiquity, will serve as the basis for the development of homeopathy by its founder, Dr. Samuel Hahnemann in the 18th century.

Another of the main laws in homeopathy is that of wholeness. Rather than concentrating on a symptom or on a disease, the practitioner approaches the patient as a whole by also paying attention to the psychic balance, the environment as well as the habits of life.

Therefore, homeopathy can rebalance a state of health not only physically but also emotionally. Once the state of health is restored, the preventive aspect of a homeopathic follow-up reveals all its importance in order to maintain this natural state that is health.

Don't wait to be sick to take care of your health!
