How Does Homoeopathy Work?

Homoeopathy is based on the Law of Similars, which is thought to have been first used by Hippocrates in the fifth century BC and later adopted by a German physician, Hahnemann, who in the late 1700s laid the foundations for homoeopathy as we know it today.

The Law of Similars dictates that substances which cause certain symptoms when given to a healthy person could also help cure the same symptoms displayed in an unhealthy person. For example when you cut an onion it causes ‘symptoms’ - acrid runny nose, watery, stinging eyes, soreness in the throat. If these particular symptoms are experienced, let’s say during a cold, the homoeopathic remedy Alium cepa (made from onion) would be prescribed.

Science has yet to find a way of measuring the mechanism by which homoeopathy works. However, there are many studies showing its effectiveness and reports too numerous to mention from successfully treated patients.
