What is Homeopathy

Homeopathy Medicine Bottle

Homeopathy is a subtle yet potent system of medicine which is based on treating the individual with highly diluted substances given in either tablet or drop form. Homeopathic medicine triggers the body's natural defences to stimulate healing.

Homeopathy works on the principle of "like cures like" – by giving a substance that would generally cause symptoms in a healthy person we are able to stimulate healing and regulate the body naturally and gently in someone who is ill.

Scientifically it can not yet be explained precisely how it works, but new theories in quantum physics are going some way towards shedding light on the process. What we do know is that a carefully selected homeopathic remedy acts as a trigger to the body's healing processes.

Homeopathy has been widely used throughout the world for more than 200 years but is based on healing traditions dating back to ancient Greece. Homeopathic remedies are drawn from the plant, mineral and animal worlds and are a form of potentised energy medicine. They are diluted to such a degree that not one molecule of the original substance can be detected, making them safe to use in even the most sensitive patient including pregnant women and children.

There is no danger of toxicity or addiction. Homeopathy is used alongside other natural remedies including herbal and nutritional medicine as part of a comprehensive treatment protocol and can also be used with pharmaceutical medications if needed.

19th Century Homeopathy: rise to popularity

Homeopathy achieved its greatest popularity in the 19th century. Dr. John Franklin Gray (1804–1882) was the first practitioner of homeopathy in the United States, beginning in 1828 in New York City. The first homeopathic schools opened in 1830, and throughout the 19th century dozens of homeopathic institutions appeared in Europe and the United States. By 1900, there were 22 homeopathic colleges and 15,000 practitioners in the United States. Because medical practice of the time relied on ineffective and often dangerous treatments, patients of homeopaths had better outcomes than those of the doctors of the time. One reason for the growing popularity of homeopathy was its success in treating people suffering from infectious disease epidemics. During 19th century epidemics of diseases such as cholera, death rates in homeopathic hospitals were lower than in conventional hospitals, where the treatments used at the time were often harmful and did little or nothing to combat the diseases.

According to Paul Ulrich Unschuld, the Nazi regime in Germany were fascinated by homeopathy, and spent large sums of money on researching its mechanisms. Unschuld further argues that homeopathy never subsequently took root in the United States, but remained more deeply established in European thinking.

In the United States the Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act of 1938 (sponsored by Royal Copeland, a Senator from New York and homeopathic physician) recognized homeopathic remedies as drugs. In the 1950s, there were only 75 pure homeopaths practicing in the U.S. However, by the mid to late 1970s, homeopathy made a significant comeback and sales of some homeopathic companies increased tenfold. Greek homeopath George Vithoulkas performed a "great deal of research to update the scenarios and refine the theories and practice of homeopathy" beginning in the 1970s, and it was revived worldwide; in Brazil during the 1970s and in Germany during the 1980s. The medical profession started to integrate such ideas in the 1990s.
