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.

Please help me if you can, I would really appreciate it. I know alot of people dont usually want to, but I need to put on more fat. I am 20, 6', and 145 pounds. I have about 6% bodyfat, and even though I eat alot of fatty foods, with protein and carbs in large meals, I have a hard time putting on weight, especially fat. My muscles and bones are strong, but they wont grow much even though I go to the gym because they dont have any fat to feed off of. So I have to eat alot, just to keep on weight, or else it drops. Thats my main issue, I was wondering if alfalfa tincture would work good for this. Here are some other characteristics. difficulty digesting gluten, and dairy. insomniac unrefreshing sleep over analytical energy at night but no energy during the day or morning pinky and ring finger in left hand have been going numb during least activity (just lately though, past 2 or 3 weeks) lots of acne on the back white heads, black heads, dry and red skin on the face (especially the cheeks and side of nose) fear of things going wrong apprehensive tense sensitive to temperatures (cool down too fast in slight cold(especially feet), and heats up to fast in slight heat) Likes salty oily food. lacks motivation lacks confidence self conscious of everything strong willpower, but often uses it to fuel negative thoughts. Can anyone help me. I thought I was an arsnicum album, but it only worked for some small things. The most helpfull remedy I have taken was ambra grisea (for fear of people), so mostly for mental stuff. Do you think alfalfa is the best for me? and if so, what about my dry red face with white heads, and acne on the back? Thanks Cody D

Dear cody, alfalfa tincture will react as a snowflake on your nose. Consult a experienced acupuncturist of the classic school.

Hoi. Dick
