What is Homeopathy?

Homeopathy (pronounced ho-me-ah-pa-thee)

Founded by Dr. Samuel Hahnemann in the late 1700's after discovering a remedy from the bark of a cinchona tree, given to a healthy person, would produce the same effects as what would be caused by malaria. It was this discovery that formed the "like cures like" approach to holistic medicine. This idea that the effect will be "proven" in a healthy person is the basis for all selections. And thus, for a person with Malaria, cinchona would be the correct treatment.
