Let Likes Cure Likes
Homeopathy Medicine’s guiding principle is states as similia similibus curentur, in other words, “let likes cure likes.” This concept of “like curing like” dates back to the Greek Father of Medicine, Hippocrates (460-377 B.C.). However, the German physician, Dr. C. F. Samuel Hahnemann (1755-1843), was the first to put this principle into a system of medicine.
Over the years, the “provings”, or experiments, in the study of Homeopathy Medicine have provided physicians with toxicological data through clinical experience. Today, we have over 2000 homeopathic medical substances.
