About Homeopathy:

  • Homeopathy is an alternative system of medicine based on the principle of 'Like cures like'.
  • Homeopathy believes that a disease can be cured by a substance that can induce symptoms similar to the ailment itself by using highly-diluted doses of natural ingredients.
  • These diluted doses of natural ingredients are expected to trigger the body's healing system.
  • Homeopathy is among the Indian Government's AYUSH for alternative medicine.
  • Western medicine dismisses Homeopathy as a mere placebo whose two most important principles are at loggerheads with the laws of physics.
  • But plenty of documented cases exist where people have been seemingly cured of their health conditions with Homeopathy.
