Homeopathy is a system of medicine founded in the early 19th century by a German physician, Dr. Samuel Hahnemann (1775-1843). Homeopathy’s key principle is the law of similars or “like cures like”. The law of similars states that a disease is cured by a medicine that creates symptoms similar to those the patient is experiencing. Homeopathic remedies are infinitesimal, diluted dosages of natutral substances which, when given in very large amounts, produce the same symptoms of the disease being treated.
