Homeopathy treatment or homoeopathy medicine is a medical system built on the principle that like cures like. It primarily uses potentised (extremely diluted) remedies to stimulate the body’s own healing functions. The word homeopathy comes from the Greek words homios (similar) and pathos (suffering), and the basis of the method is that like cures like. Homeopathy started to develop during the end of the 18th century, although some fundamental ideas have been known for a long time in Indian and Oriental Medicine. They have also been noted by historical medical personas like Hippocrates and Paracelsus.

Homeopathic herbal remedies or a homoeopathic remedy used in homeopathy are usually potentised, which means that they are diluted in several stages. Other remedies are used as well.
The theory behind the potentization is that the effectiveness of a remedy is inversely proportional to its main substance. The potency isn’t in the substance itself, but in its pattern, and the less there is of that substance the more powerful the pattern. This is explained by that energy is created and augmented through the rhythmic shaking of the solution when it is diluted.

A patient of 54 has been suffering from OCD for 25 years. He has been treated by various psychiatrists who prescribed him antidepressant+an anti anxiety drug.Right now he is taking lexapro 10 mg+ Ativan 1mg at night.He also takes anti-hypertensive drugs. Having consulted a homeopath he is now taking causticum 50m (5 doses so far). He feels pain too while going upstairs. The homeopath asked him not to stop the antidepressant or anti-anxiety drug abruptly. He will suggest the patient to taper off the drugs in due course. What the patient should do now?

The man I am telling of once told me that he had severe jaundice when he was 13.Since childhood he was prone to skin ailments and used to take allopathic medicines and ointments. His parents were somewhat steady. After retirement from job father fell victim to bronchial problems at the age of 60 and died in a matured age. Mother too was sturdy.

The man has a itchy skin that seems scaled.During winer the skin looks odd as white scary marks are noticed whenever he scratches.In winter the skin becomes so rough and dry that it is mandatory to use Vaseline or oils. Twice or thrice he suffered from cellulitis and took antibiotics.
