Homeopathy is a system of medicine devised by Dr Samuel Hahnemann from 1755 to 1811. Hahnemann had sought to develop a medical system that relied solely on single drugs in harmless doses that had been meticulously studied for their effects on people and their ailments.
His observations showed that medicines did not react in the same manner in every person. He also noted that not everybody suffering a particular disease experienced exactly the same signs and symptoms. He observed differences in their mental and emotional disposition and particular things would make them feel better or worse. He found that each of these variations would respond better to different medicines. His studies included local herbs, minerals, foods, poisons and alchemical drugs commonly used at that time.
Classical homeopathy as prescribed by Hahnemann is tailored to the individual and only one remedy is given at a time.
Homotoxicology is a modern form of homeopathy and is the most prescribed form of natural medicine in Germany, where it has been used for over 50 years. In Homotoxicology, homeopathically prepared combinations are designed to work with the body’s defense mechanisms to facilitate the body’s elimination of toxic substances and support healing. Remedies are prescribed according to the severity and stage of the disease process.
