A simple definition homeopathy is: A substance capable of producing a certain set of symptoms in a healthy volunteer is also capable of erasing those same symptoms in someone who is ill . To be homeopathic the totality (majority) of symptoms must be matched to a homeopathic remedy. On one hand you have the remedy's symptoms and on the other you have the person who is ill. Match symptom to symptom and you will see healing occur.
I am often asked what does homeopathy treat. The answer is everything but that statement confuses people who are used to specialists in various areas of medicine. Homeopathy treats the person who has a health problem. Not the disease, the person, the unique person with a problem. I work with my clients to eliminate their asthma,ADD, AD/HD,depression,irritable bowel syndrome, Crohn's and many other "diseases".
Hahnemann sought freedom on all levels for his patients with his remedies, freedom to live life's highest purpose. Homeopathy helps people do just that.
