Homeopathy is a system of medicine based upon the law of similars; like cures like. For example, everyone is familiar with the results of drinking too much coffee – shaky hands, jittery nerves, and insomnia. Coffea cruda, a homeopathic remedy made from unroasted coffee beans, is used to alleviate these very symptoms, whatever the cause. Like cures like. A homeopathic remedy is simply a dilution of one or several botanical, mineral, or animal substances. These substances are highly diluted until very little or none of the original substance remains. Some have also called the law of similars “the principle of similar resonat- ing frequencies.” It is interesting to note that in homeopathy the most highly diluted prepara- tions are considered to be the most potent.
A Brief History…
Homeopathy has been called “the original alternative medicine,” yet it is neither an herbal medicine nor a dietary regimen. This form of medicine was discovered over two hundred years ago by Dr. Samuel Hahnemann, a chemist and personal physician to the German royal family. Disillusioned with the medical practices of his time, Hahnemann stumbled across written studies that demonstrated the principles of the law of similars. Through this principle, he found a gentle means of stimulating the body’s innate healing ability and coined the term “Homeopathy” from the Latin words homoion (similar) and pathein (disease, suffering). “Let like be cured with like,” was Hahnemann’s philosophy.
