Homeopathy does not strictly focus on the sickness or the diseased part, rather it will focus on the total individual. Homeopathic remedies work by stimulating the body’s self-regulating mechanisms to initiate the healing process.
Homeopathy works on the principle of similia similibus curentur, or “like cures like” – that is a substance that would cause symptoms in a healthy individual is utilised to cure those exact same symptoms in illness. For example, homeopathy can treat a patient who is suffering from insomnia with a remedy made from coffee, as coffee in a crude form, causes the symptoms of insomnia in larger doses.
