Homeopathy is a natural form of medicine used by over 200 million people worldwide to treat both acute and chronic conditions. It is based on the principle of ‘like cures like’. In other words, a substance taken in small amounts will cure the same symptoms it causes if taken in large amounts.

Homeopathic treatment works with your body’s own healing powers to bring about health and well being. You are treated as an individual, not as a collection of disease labels. Homeopathy treats all your symptoms at all levels of your being – spiritual, emotional, mental and physical and finds the ‘like cures like’ match for them. Homoeopathically prepared remedies, providing the minimum dose, are gentle, subtle and powerful. They are non-addictive, and not tested on animals.


Homeopathy is the second most widely used system of medicine in the world. Its growth in popularity in the United States has been around 25 to 50 percent a year throughout the last decade.




It is very important to understand the disease process in the body. Our body and mind prepares itself before it is ready to take a sickness, these are called the predispositions. The vital force speaks by virtue of producing sickness or the symptoms so that one should pay attention to it. When these occasionally coming symptoms are over looked or wrongfully treated, a chronic condition settles which is then labelled as a DIS-EASE.

We should inquire about how the disease started; most of the times the causation of Migraines, Gastric reflux, Gastric ulcers, sleeplessness, cramps, tics, psoriasis and many other health problems is emotional disturbance. The individual gets hurt so deeply on the emotional level that the body starts to show the symptoms on the physical level in order to survive. People try to treat all the symptoms individually by allopathic drugs or other means but they never feel overall well because they are being treated superficially. Result is that the symptoms never go away and the health deteriorates further by the time. It is not possible to bring about the health without knowing the origin and the maintaining causes. It is only the power of the carefully selected homeopathic remedy which can make all the emotional and physical sufferings disappear in a natural way. The remedy works by hitting the vital force and unblocking the energy which brings the overall general wellbeing {that is the reason I call it Energy medicine!}

And the art is to prescribe a single remedy in infrequent doses; sometimes just one or two doses and let it work. A homeopathic remedy treats the person as a whole, relieves the most disturbing issues in a short period of time and makes the person less prone to the same triggers by boosting the immune system. So the person gradually feels better overall: mentally, emotionally and physically.

Founder of Homeopathy

Homeopathy’s roots emerge from the findings, teachings and writings of Dr. Samuel Hahnemann (1755-1843). Hahnemann graduated from medical school in 1779 and started his own medical practice. He soon began his first homeopathic experiments in 1790, as a result of his disillusionment with such common medical practices of the day as purging, bloodletting, and the use of toxic chemicals. At one point, he gave up his own daily practice to begin working as a chemist while translating medical texts. It was when Hahnemann began working on a project to translate William Cullen’s Materia Medica into German that he began his quest for a better way of providing healthcare using the principles of “Similars.” While working on this project, he became fascinated with a species of South American tree-bark (cinchona) which was being used to treat malaria-induced fever. Hahnemann ingested the bark and discovered that it caused symptoms similar to malaria. He continued his research into “cures” and the idea of “similar suffering,” and began compiling his findings. Similia similibus curentur, the Latin phrase meaning “let likes be cured by likes,” is the primary principle of homeopathy.

The First U.S. Homeopathic School

Students of Hahnemann founded the first homeopathic medical school in the United States in the late 1800’s. It gained recognition because of its success in treating the many disease epidemics rampant at the time — including scarlet fever, typhoid, cholera and yellow fever.

Ontario College of Homeopathic medicine

OCHM was founded in 2001 as a not for profit institution for the advancement and education of Homeopathic Medicine. Today, OCHM welcomes a diverse group of men and women who graduate with the highest degree of academic and clinical training in Classical Homeopathy.

History of Homeopathy

References to the basic principles of homeopathy are found in ancient writings and in the traditions of native medicines.  These principles were re-discovered over 200 years ago by German physician Samuel Hahnemann (1755-1843) who developed them into the science that he called Homeopathy – from the Greek words homoios (similar) and pathos(disease or suffering).  This new system of healing quickly spread throughout Europe and beyond.  Members of Britain’s Royal Family have used it since Queen Victoria’s reign. By the late 1800s, homeopathy had become one of the most popular healthcare systems in North America, valued by both doctors and families using home remedy kits.

The popularity of homeopathy declined in the early 20th century with the advent of pharmaceutical drugs and other modern therapies.  In recent decades, however, as many people have turned to alternate forms of medicine to avoid side-effects from conventional treatment, the use of homeopathy has exploded throughout most parts of the world.  It is now an accepted form of medicine in many European and Latin American countries, the UK, India and recently has been regulated in Ontario Canada.

In North America, the most common approach to prescribing homeopathy is known as Classical Homeopathy, which is based on the selection of a single remedy that most closely matches your symptoms at a particular time and then waiting to observe your response before administering another remedy.  This method focuses on the underlying disturbance or disease that causes the symptoms, rather than on the symptoms themselves.  Classical homeopathic treatment is sometimes referred to as Constitutional Prescribing.

How are Homeopathic remedies prepared?

The Homeopathic remedies are prepared from almost all the natural sources like plants, minerals, animals etc. The chemical or the curative properties of the crude substance are activated by a process called Potentization. This is unique process and only Homeopathic remedies are prepared in this way. In this process the quantity of the substance is reduced gradually while improving its quality or the curative properties.

Remedies used by homeopathic physicians come from natural sources and are prepared in such a way that they are devoid of all chemical toxicity. In conventional medicine, drugs are generally given for their effects on the organism, while in homeopathy, the unique remedy is given to provoke a healing reaction of the organism. Since only the living organism can heal itself, the homeopathic remedy is merely an influence used to provoke the immune system to bring about recovery. The greater the degree of similarity between the symptoms that are provoked by the remedy on a healthy person and the symptoms displayed by the person who is sick, the greater will be the recovery reaction.

Years of experience have enabled homeopathic physicians to confirm that in the great majority of cases, the fundamental cause of disease is the general predisposition of the individual to be sick. The imbalance, or diseased state, is in fact only the expression of this predisposition to be sick once the conjuncture of other factors has become favorable to its expression. With the most similar remedy (or in other words, the most homeopathic), the organism re-balances itself globally so that the tendency to be sick is greatly decreased. This explains the extraordinary results achieved by homeopathy!

Homeopathy FAQ’s

What to expect during a visit to a homeopathic physician?


The initial consultation might take up to one hour to discuss the complete history. Usually a follow-up appointment will be scheduled four to six weeks later to determine the effectiveness of the remedy.The patient will be asked to describe all his problems in detail as well as a complete description of everything characterizing him, especially regarding his feelings, sensations, sensitivity, psyche, and all that concerns his organism in terms of energy, sleep, hunger, digestion, etc. The better the homeopathic physician understands his patient and his problems, the better he can individualize and find the specific and most similar remedy for this patient’s disease state.

Things to Avoid while taking the remedy

  1. Avoid taking CAFFEINE in any form; it slows down the effect of the remedy and if
    taken frequently then might even antidote the remedy. Some of the common
    things to avoid are:
    a. COFFEE or decaffeinated coffee (Instead, you may drink black teas,
    green teas and fruit teas).
    b. Energy drinks and Coke (cold drink) – they both contain caffeine.
  2. Store the remedies in a dark, cool place (not the fridge), away from strong-
    smelling perfumes, cosmetics, foods, and detergents. Do not carry the remedy in
    your handbag with cosmetics and perfumes. A dresser drawer with clean clothes
    is a good place to store the remedies.
  3. Do not touch the remedy with your fingers! Throw away any remedy that has
    been contaminated.
  4. Do not eat, drink, or brush your teeth 20 minutes before and after you take the
    remedy. The remedy must be taken in a clean mouth.
  5. Pour the remedy into your mouth under your tongue and let it dissolve slowly.

Which diseases can be treated with homeopathy?

Strange but true, in homeopathy we do not treat diseases, but the person who is sick. Whether a person has an acute or chronic disease, all of their symptoms, whether physical, mental or emotional, from a whole representing a state of imbalance very specific to this individual. The goal of the physician is to recognize through the unique expression of symptoms of a patient the pattern of disturbed energy and identify among a great number of remedies available the one most homeopathic, or most similar to the patient’s disease. Homeopathy is the medicine of the individual.

What is homeopathic aggravation?

The homeopathic aggravation after the administration of the curative remedy is the reaction of the organism, as it responds to the gently stimulating action of the medicine. This aggravation may only be a slight worsening of the present symptoms or re-appearance of the past symptoms which might have been suppressed with the wrong treatment. The best possible reaction will be appearance of high grade fever which usually lasts for 2-3 days and shall not be treated or suppressed.

In Homeopathy, remedies are selected on the basis of Totality of symptom. The most appropriate remedy suitable to the patient is called similimum. When such a similimum is given to the patient, at times a temporary intensification of the symptoms may occur to the patient. This aggravation shall be mild and usually last only for a short period. Such an effect sometimes occur following the first dose of the remedy or when the remedy has been taken more often than needed or if the person is unusually sensitive.

Most of the homeopathic medicines do not contain pharmacologically active ingredients, but only possess certain dynamic properties. This dynamic effect of the remedy is the one that acts on the patient.   Homeopathy believes that the diseases originate at the life force, which is dynamic in nature and when a dynamic remedy interacts with the life force, it produces an artificial or transient set of symptoms, provided that remedy is similimum. This intensification of the symptom is called Homeopathic aggravation.

The intensity and duration of the similar aggravation gives us a clue about the correctness of the chosen remedy, the patient’s vital force, prognosis, and for case management.

Can a pregnant woman or a newborn baby benefit from homeopathy?

Since homeopathic remedies are devoid of all chemical toxicity, homeopathy is the ideal medicine for people of all ages, even the most sensitive like a newborn baby. Difficulties during pregnancy and the delivery or its aftermath, as well as all the problems experienced by the newborn, can be dealt with very effectively and without side effects with homeopathy.

How does homeopathy deal with patients suffering with mental or emotional problems?

As incredible as it may be, the majority of such problems normalize with the application of the homeopathic remedy that is the most similar to the state of the patient. Patients who are under psychotherapy will recover as a rule far more rapidly after they begin homeopathic treatment. One can also get rid of the anti-depressants or the anti-anxiety medications with the help of Homeopathy.

Which conditions are outside the scope of homeopathy

If the person has a problem that necessitates a surgical intervention, the homeopathic physician will be the first to refer this patient to a surgeon. But as surgical interventions are a shock to the organism, homeopathic treatment will be ideal to prepare patients for surgery and to help them recover from the operation. Similarly, cases of dislocation and fracture will be dealt with by an orthopedist but homeopathy will be of great assistance to diminish pain and enhance recovery. For less serious physical problems, patients will be referred to chiropractors, osteopaths, massage therapists or other appropriate therapists. Generally, people afflicted with genetic, congenital, metabolic or very advanced degenerative diseases cannot always expect to be cured with homeopathy but are likely to receive effective palliative relief, free of the side effects usually associated with modern drugs.

What are the advantages of Homeopathic remedy?

Homeopathy acts quickly without causing any side effects. The homeopathic system which is proved on human beings is very effective in both acute and chronic conditions. It addresses the problem from the root and establishes harmony in health and avoids frequent visits to Healthcare providers for different problems. Homeopathic remedies are sweet and everyone especially kids love to eat. Homeopathy can be started depending on the current condition instead of waiting, thereby avoiding the deterioration of health and preventing further complications. Homeopathic remedies offer good health.
