Homeopathy has its own views on illness, and its own diagnostic and treatment principles. It was first formulated by the renowned German physician Samuel Hahnemann in 1789 and is based on the law of “likes cure likes”.

A homeopathic remedy is made from a minimal dose of a natural substance (plant, animal, or mineral) which would normally cause symptoms in a healthy person; however, when given to a sick person exhibiting those symptoms, will effect a cure.
