Homoeopathy is a holistic system of medicine which is based on treating the individual with highly diluted substances given in mainly tablet form, which triggers the body’s natural system of healing. It is practised on the principle, that a drug and a disease which produce similar symptoms cancel each other out in some way thereby restoring the patients to health. The principle of 'Like can cure Like' forms the basis of Homoeopathy. This system was first proposed by German physician Samuel Hahnemann in 1796. Homoeopathy professionals are known as Homoeopaths . They take in consideration, not only the symptoms of the disease, but they also use other aspects of the patient's physical and psychological state in recommending remedies. In Homoeopathy remedy is chosen based on the symptoms as well the character and temperament of the patient. In short two persons with same illness may be offered different remedies based on their individual nature. Scientifically it can not yet be explained precisely how it works, but new research in biochemistry and quantum physics is going some way towards shedding light on the process. Because of the lack of scientific and clinical evidence it is known as a form of alternative medicine.
