In 30 years, since 1790 to 1820, Homeopathy and the exercise of using homeopathic medicine as a remedy has been discovered.
A German physician named Samuel Hahnemann first introduced homeopathy officially in 1796, when he expressed his basic principle for homeopathy which is the "law of similars" or “like cures like” (or let like be cured by like). Hahnemann himself invented the word “homeopathy” meaning “similar sufferings”. Homeopathy (also spelled as homoeopathy) is a practice of healing people using diluted form of medicine that has the same content that would manifest the same symptoms you experience to a healthy person.
Homeopathic medicines (also called “homeopathic remedy”) are based on natural elements or beings like minerals, animals and plant extracts. Homeopaths prepare these medicines by the process called dynamisation or potentisation through which they dilute the substance with alcohol or distilled water and then aggressively oscillate it by ten hard strikes against an elastic body, this process is called succussion. They dilute them then adjust the amount of concentration. They do this to keep off from wrong and undesired results or bad side effects.
v Homeopathy has its own list of medicines for different kinds of illnesses. They also sell online.
As to the homeopathic belief, the more a homeopathic remedy is diluted, the more efficacious it will be. But not all the homeopaths support this kind of belief in using tremendous amount of dilutions. The early homeopaths were originally doctors and conventionally used lower dilutions; they worry about pathology and have a strong attachment to conventional medicine. While those who exercise prescribing large amount of dilutions stresses about vital force, miasms (is an obstacle and is Hahnemann’s theory in fighting organisms like virus or bacteria that cannot be eliminated) and a spiritual interpretation of disease.
Many are against homeopathy and believe it as a sort of quackery because it lacks positive scientific evidences. All the scientific evidences of this practice can be hypothesized to no more than a placebo. One even said that “if the theory of how homeopathy might work is flawed, homeopathy itself can't work at all”. But then, all of the people who involve themselves in homeopathy or being healed by it have testaments about how effective it really is. They stated that “science” (particularly in medicine) was never about certainty of any element or entity, but more likely a probability.
There are over 26 known colleges all over the world for homeopathy. Some of which are, The Lakeland College of Homeopathy and North West College of Homoeopathy in UK, Los Angeles School of Homeopathy and Centre for Homeopathic Education New York in US and S.I.M.O.H. Italian School of Hahnemannian Homeopathic Medicine in Italy.
