Homeopathy, Homeopathic Medicine

The practice of medicine that embraces a holistic, natural approach to the treatment of the sick, which treats the person as a whole, rather than focusing on a diseased part. Homeopathy is produced according to the U.S. FDA-recognized Homeopathic Pharmacopoeia of the United States from natural sources, whether vegetable, mineral, or animal in nature. The guiding principle of Homeopathy is "let likes cure likes," similia similibus curentur. While the concept dates back to Greek Father of Medicine, Hippocrates (460-377 B.C.), it was German physician Dr. C. F. Samuel Hahnemann (1755-1843) who first codified this principle into a system of medicine. Over the years, by means of provings, toxicological data, and clinical experience, the homeopathic drug pictures of over 2000 substances have been derived.
