Homeopathy medicine known as Homeopathy is a medical system that was developed in Germany more than 200 years ago.

Based on 2 main theories:- 

  1. “Like cures like ” — is the notion that a disease can be cured by a substance that produces similar symptoms in healthy people.
  2. “Law of minimum dose”  — is the notion that the lower the dose of the medication, the greater its effectiveness.


France:-  18,000 physicians prescribe Homeopathy medicines and 23,000 pharmacies carry homeopathy medicines.

In England, 42% of British physicians refer patients to homeopaths.

In India 70,000 certified homeopaths.

In Germany 20% of Physicians.

In Netherlands 45% of physicians consider homeopathy effective.


Homeopathy is safe, gentle, and natural system of healing. It is generally considered extremely safe to use, even for pregnant women, small children and pets. Very affordable. 


Homeopathic products normally come from plants (such as red onion), arnica (mountain herb), poison ivy, belladonna (deadly nightshade) and stinging nettle, minerals (such as Phosphorus) or animals (such as honey bees).


Homeopathic medicines are made from very small amounts of natural substances. Remedies are prepared or “potentized” — using a process of repeated dilution and sucussion (vigorous shaking).

Higher potencies are stronger-acting than lower ones. Even through they are diluted.
