In 1796, German physician Samuel Hahnemann wrote, “Essay on New Curative Principle”, in which he introduced a system of medicine based on similarity and the use of very high dilution pharmacological agents.
The theory and practice of homeopathy may seem strange to those of us who are accustomed to conventional Western medicine. We instinctively sense the rightness of a healing approach that stimulates and works with the body’s natural healing force rather than attacking it. Homeopathy works with us, not on us. It assists our innate biological intelligence for health. For example, when we break a bone, we don’t have to concentrate on healing the fracture – it is our innate intelligence that repairs it more or less automatically. In fact, the body can heal itself of virtually any disease state if given the proper support. Homeopathy encourages and maximizes our innate biological intelligence for cure.
