Homeopathy, or homeopathic medicine, is a medical philosophy and practice based on the idea that the body has the ability to heal itself. Homeopathic medicine views symptoms of illness as normal responses of the body as it attempts to regain health.
Homeopathy is a natural medicine that uses medically active substances in infinitesimal doses, that when administered in a healthy individual, would produce symptoms similar to those for the relief of which they are given. This is because Homeopathy is based upon a principle of "like cures like". The remedies given are made from plant, animal or mineral matter and diluted to a great degree. Once administered to the body, the immune system responds by producing similar symptoms to which they have been administered for. The success of Homeopathic medicines lies in matching the correct remedy with the correct symptom.
