Homeopathy is an alternative method of treatment based on the ideas of the German physician Samuel Hahnemann, published from 1796 onwards.
The basic idea of this treatment method is the similarity principle:
"Let like be healed by like."
The homeopathic method is therefore based on the administration of a substance that is capable of causing the symptoms of a sick person in a healthy living being. The patient (human or animal) is considered as a whole, all symptoms of the illness are taken into account when choosing a homeopathic remedy.
In order to minimize the patient's exposure, Samuel Hahnemann developed a special form of dilution: potentiation. The original substances are shaken vigorously after each dilution step.
Due to the "dilutions" often smiled at and rejected, today we know from the findings of quantum physics that these positive changes in a substance are possible through potentiation.
Homeopathy requires a thorough approach to the patient in order to be able to correctly assess the symptoms of his illness.
It is completely harmless and works on humans and animals.
