Like cures like. It’s a simple concept that serves as the foundational idea behind homeopathy. Proposed in 1796 by Samuel Hahnemann, the idea took Europe and the world by storm as homeopathic study and treatment became more and more mainstream.
In essence, it’s the idea that a substance that would cause illness when consumed in large amounts, can cure the same illness if taken in small amounts. Think ingesting a tiny amount of poison ivy to treat a rash. Like cures like. It’s a natural and holistic approach to medicine that takes into account each individual’s lifestyle, diet, medical history, age, mental and emotional state, etc. when developing a prescription by a trained homeopath.
People take homeopathic medicine to treat a wide variety of illnesses and ailments, from acute to chronic. Really anything from stomach issues, cough and cold symptoms, eczema and arthritis among others can be treated with homeopathic medicine.
The important factor to consider when shopping for homeopathic medicine, often taken in pill form, is quality. You want to make sure that the pills you are ingesting have clearly labeled and sourceable ingredients with the appropriate dosages and directives. The market is wide and varied and not all medicines are created equal or with the same attention to the quality of ingredients and quality control.
