WHAT IS HOMOEOPATHY?
Homeopathy was developed over 200 years ago by Samuel Hahnemann, a German doctor,
who was dissatisfied with the harm caused by the orthodox drugs, and other conventional

Homeopathy is based on a much older medical principle, indeed a principle that dates
back to ancient Greece (and probably earlier), called the 'Law of Similars', or more
commonly described as
"Like cures like"
Homeopathy uses remedies made from a wide variety of substances. Over the years,
homeopaths have developed a 'remedy picture' for each substance. How is this done?
One example is the remedy Allium Cepa (red onion). Many people, when they peel an
onion, will find that their eyes stream, and their nose runs. Therefore, Allium Cepa
when made into homeopatic remedy, is used in conditions where the patient's eyes
are streaming, or when their nose runs - in conditions such as hayfever, for example.
So the task of homeopathy is to match the symptoms of a patient's illness with one
of these remedy pictures. The 'Law of Similars' states, and the experience of homeopathy
demonstrates regularly, that once a good match is found between the symptom picture
of a patient, and the symptom picture of a remedy, the patient will usually experiences
