What is Homeopathy?

Homeopathy is a holistic system of treatment that originated in Germany more than 200 years ago. It is based on the principal that “like cures like”. It means that when a substance that causes a symptom in a healthy person, when given in dilution, can cure the same symptom in a sick person.
