What is Homeopathy?

Homeopathy is a form of holistic medicine used to treat both acute and chronic conditions. It is based on the principle of ‘like cures like’ – in other words, a substance taken in small amounts will cure the same symptoms it causes if it was taken in large amounts. Homeopathic remedies are derived from substances that come from plants, minerals or animals, are manufactured using a process combining serial dilution and succussion (vigorous shaking). Homeopathic remedies are often formulated as sugar pellets to be placed under the tongue, but they can also be supplied in other forms such as ointments, gels and creams.
