First proposed by the German physician Samuel Hahnemann in 1796, homeopathy, a form of alternative medicine, uses potentized preparations which are thought to produce effects similar to that of the presenting symptoms. Homeopathic remedies for patients are selected through not only symptoms, but in the physiological and psychological states as well.
Homeopathy sees disease and sickness as disturbances in the natural life force of an individual. It proposes that the life force has the ability to react and adapt to problems which occur inside or outside of the body. It is referred to as the “law of susceptibility”, which implies that a negative state of mind can attract entities called “miasms” to invade the body and produce symptoms. Hahnemann conceived the idea for the law of similars, which is the base for homeopathy today.
