What is homeopathy? 

Homeopathy is a distinct system of medicine developed by German physician Samuel Hahnemann in the 18th century and is still widely and successfully used today in many countries throughout the world. Based upon the principle of “like cures like”, one's symptoms are carefully taken and then matched to a homeopathic remedy that produces similar symptoms rather than giving a medicine that opposes or suppresses one's symptoms.

What does "like cures like" mean? 

 Coffee is frequently used as an example to demonstrate this Law of Similars, or "like cures like," since most of us have consumed coffee at least once. If you can remember back to that first cup of strong coffee you consumed, or perhaps a time when you indulged in a bit too much coffee, it is likely that you experienced one or more of the following symptoms: heart palpitations, trembling hands, restlessness, racing thoughts, increased sweating, or difficultly falling asleep. Since those are the symptoms coffee produces in a healthy person, when an unwell individual has a combination of these symptoms (such as someone suffering with insomnia due to a racing mind causing restlessness) a homeopathic prescription of Coffea would stimulate their body to heal and relieve their symptoms.
    
"The physician's highest calling, his only calling, is to make sick people healthy - to heal, as it is termed."
 
- Dr. Samuel Hahnemann

How does homeopathy work?

The way homeopathic remedies work is very simple – they stimulate your body to heal itself. 
At its deepest level every individual’s body has a desire to be healthy and a resilience against becoming ill. However, at times the physical, environmental, infectious or emotional stressors we are faced with can become so great that they throw our body “out of balance”; outweighing this resilience and leading to disease. A properly matched homeopathic remedy gives your body the gentle nudge it needs to get back on track; allowing self-healing to take place and decreasing its future susceptibility to disease. 
Therefore, the profound and often rapid healing that takes place after taking a remedy is solely the result of your body falling back into balance and fulfilling its desire to be healthy.
Everyone! Homeopathic remedies are prescribed based on your individual symptoms and can affect all body systems making it a helpful therapy for almost any health condition.
Since a homeopathic remedy does nothing more than stimulate your body to heal itself, it does not produce side effects like traditional pharmaceuticals targeted toward a particular symptom, pathway or body system. They are even safe for infants, children, pregnant women and nursing mothers and are used frequently in these populations with fantastic results.
