           What is Homeopathy?

Homeopathy is an approach of healing based on the belief that our body can heal itself. Homeopathic remedies work naturally with our body and restore the vital energy balance of our body.  Homeopathic remedies are prepared from natural substances, in a highly diluted form and work by stimulating our body’s own healing mechanism.  

     Founder of Homeopathy      

 Dr. SAMUEL HAHNEMANN

(1755-1843)

     German Physician, Founder & Father of Homeopathy

 


           Homeopathic Remedies 
                           
    • Homeopathic remedies always have something called as potency after the name of the remedy (e.g., 6X or 30C or 1M), which signifies how many times the remedy has been diluted. The letter signifies the rate of dilution (e.g., X = 1 in 10 dilution, C = 1 in 100 dilution).  
    • In Homeopathy, greater the rate of dilution, higher the potency.  Most Homeopathic remedies have two words in their names and a number and letter after the name to denote the potency or strength.  Some remedies have one word or three words in their names but they all have a number and a letter to denote the strength of the remedy(eg: Nux Vomica 6 X,  Lycopodium  clavatum 200 C,  Hepar Sulphuris Calcareum 10 M - etc.)

          Homeopathy works on the following Principles
