“There have been two great revelations in my life: the first was behop, the second was homeopathy.” – Dizzy Gillespie, jazz musician
Homeopathy is a medical science based upon “the law of similars”. Its practice was developed by the German physician, Dr. Samuel Hahnemann, at the end of the 18th century.
The homeopathic practice involves using substances readily available in nature and then serially diluting and succusing to “potentize” the substance into a remedy. In large non-homeopathic accounts the substance may produce a set of symptoms, but in smaller dilutions the substance may stimulate the body’s vital force to “cure” the same set of symptoms. Often this stimulation of the vital force will effect healing in the physical, mental/emotional and spiritual realms.
Homeopathy is a uniquely sustainable practice, both in its creation and dispensing of its remedies. A remedy is made from a natural substance that is made into a “mother tincture,” which is saturated with the properties of the substance. The mother tincture and remedies can last for years if kept under proper conditions. Also the substance used in the original tincture may be part of the plant or animal, and need not harm the animal or plant while obtaining it. For example, a leaf or twig from a part of a plant or few drops of milk from a mammal may be used to create the original tincture. Then thousands of remedies can be made from the original “mother tincture.”

“Homeopathy cures a greater percentage of cases than any other method of treatment. Homeopathy is… the method of treating patents economically and non-violently.” – M. Gandhi
