Homeopathy has been used successfully for more than 200 years worldwide. Its basic principles are clear and simple:
Like should be treated with like – a diseased state is cured by a medicine which can produce similar symptoms in a healthy person: Coffee is known to cause sleeplessness and agitation in some people, so when made into a homeopathic medicine, it could be used to treat people with those symptoms. Conventional medicine sometimes uses similar methods, eg: the stimulant Ritalin is used to treat patients with ADHD, or small doses of allergens such as pollen can be used to de-sensitise allergic patients. However, one major difference with homeopathic medicines is that substances are used in ultra high dilutions, which makes them non-toxic.
