What is Homeopathy?
Homeopathic medicine or Homeopathy, developed by Samuel Hahnemann over two centuries ago, invokes two primary principles.
Principle 1: Similia Similibus Curantur
First comes Similia Similibus Curantur, or “let likes be treated by likes.” This principle suggests that the same substances that cause a well person to become sick can be used to treat those symptoms in a sick person.
A common example would be the onion, for instance. In a well person, an onion may cause itchiness and burning in the eyes, leading to tears and general discomfort. A homeopathic doctor may consider prescribing allium cepa ( micro dosing of the onion) to a patient suffering from similar symptoms such as burning eyes, runny nose, watery eyes for instance. When the symptoms match the characteristics of the remedy, it brings a neutral or curative effect.
Principle 2: Minimal Dosage
Dr. Hahnemann, the founder of homeopathic medicine, initially started treating ailments with very small doses of herbs and remedies to mitigate the risk of side effects and toxicity. This makes sense when you consider principle #1, “like treats like.”
For instance, consider Ipecac, a homeopathic medicine derived from the roots of the Cephaelis ipecacuanha plant. This plant, when ingested, causes nausea and vomiting. Even until recent times, conventional medicine practitioners would suggest ipecac if a child swallowed poison or some other toxic material – it was a great way to empty the contents of the stomach in an emergency.
In homeopathic medicine, a doctor may prescribe a very small dosage of ipecac to a patient suffering from nausea. The small dosage is important so as not to cause significantly more discomfort, and the fact that ipecac can cause nausea uses the paradoxically medicinal effect of reversing the nausea.
