What is Homeopathy?
Homeopathy is based on the “Law of Similars” which states that a substance that causes a particular disease in a healthy individual will cure the same disease in an ill person. Homeopaths use this principle in order to select the appropriate remedy for an individual.
Homeopathy is a gentle, complete system of medicine that is entirely natural. It works by stimulating the body to heal itself.

Like Cures Like
Homeopathy is a system of medicine founded by the celebrated physician Dr. Samuel Hahnemann of Germany. It is based on the principle that “like cures like”. In practice, this means that a medicine capable of producing certain effects when taken by a healthy human being is capable of curing any illness that displays similar effects.
Who can benefit from Homeopathy?

What is the treatment like?
The initial consultation, the homoeopath spends time in getting to know the patient well. About the present illness, about past and family health history, about the lifestyle, the emotional aspect etc. Based on this a constitutional remedy is given which is easy to take and pleasant to taste.
Why does homeopathy take a long time ?
It is a myth that homeopathy is slow acting. Most of the times what happens is the patient comes to us with long history of chronic illness. Therefore the treatment takes time. Homoeopathy is in fact fast acting in acute conditions such as fever, diarrhoea, vomiting, etc.
Do homeopathic medicines have side effects ?
Our medicines are energy. They are prepared by serial dilutions and contain no material substance in them. Hence, no side effects.
Why should there be a gap before and after the intake of the medicine ?
You have to keep the medicine on the tongue so that it comes in contact with the nerves. That is the reason why we say not to eat anything ten minutes before or after. So that the tongue has nothing else that will interfere with the absorption of the medicine.

Treating Man as a Whole
Another fundamental principle of Homoeopathy is that it treats the patient as a whole and as an individual. There is no medicine for any particular disease, but there is a medicine for the patient suffering from the disease. It is being increasingly acknowledged these days that the mind and body are inter linked. We now see the rapid rise of the holistic concept of disease with an emphasis on its psychosomatic aspect. Hahnemann recognized all this long ago, and stressed that bodily and mental symptoms are to be taken together to form the portrait of disease. The Homoeopathic Materia Medica is rich in mental symptoms and we especially use these in selecting the remedy.
The present problem of the patient is not usually an isolated occurrence. it is part of a sequence. The family history and the events through childhood are taken into account as homoeopathy treats not only the present symptoms, but the entire sequence, thereby preventing the progress of disease. Children under Homoeopathic treatment grow in to more healthy adults, they find relief from the scourge of bad inheritance as well.
