Homeopathy is a 200-year-old system of healing commonly used in Europe, India and South America . . . Based on the principle of “like cures like”, homeopathy recognizes that substances capable of producing symptoms in healthy individuals can treat those same symptoms in people who are sick. The approach in homeopathy is holistic: assessment is based on the entire breadth of one’s symptoms, with the purpose of restoring greater health on physical, mental and emotional levels.
