Beginner's Guide to Homeopathy

To give you a brief introduction to homeopathy, the fundamental principle from which this alternative medicine originates is ‘similar’ (homois) ‘suffering’ (pathos). Based on reasoning that like cures like, it is a system of healing that treats the symptoms of a sick person with a substance (or remedy) that would create similar such symptoms in a healthy person.
