Homeopathy is a natural medical system that works with the body to cure itself, relieve symptoms, and improve your entire health.
Those who practice it uses small amounts of natural substances such as minerals and plants.
This alternative medicine was developed in 1776 and it is more popular in European countries used to treat both chronic and acute conditions.
How Does Homeopathy Work?
The fundamental belief behind homeopathy is that something that results in symptoms in a healthy person can treat an illness with similar symptoms when taken in minimal dose.
This is meant to trigger a person’s natural defenses. For instance, the red onion is used in homeopathic remedies for allergies because it makes your eyes cry.
Homeopathic doctors also known as homeopaths weaken these ingredients by adding alcohol or water.
Then they do a process called potentization which is shaking the mixture. Homeopaths believe this step transfers the healing essence.
They also believe that the smaller the dose, the powerful the medicine.
