Homeopathy, developed in the 1700’s, is based on the principle of “like cures like”. A remedy is selected, which in its crude form would produce in a healthy individual the same symptoms found in a sick person suffering from the specific illness. Minute amounts of natural substances (plant, animal or mineral-based) are used to stimulate the body’s innate ability to heal, as the aim is to change the body’s energy levels that lie at the root of disease. Homeopathy is a powerful tool and affects healing on both a physical and emotional level.
