Foundational Principles of Homeopathy

Homeopathy is an art and a science. Homeopaths determine the strength of a patient's energy in order to match a homeopathic potency to that energy.

What are the inherited genetic predispositions that run in a person's family lineage? Asking this question is key to prescribing the right remedy.

One of the principles upon which homeopathy is founded is: "That which has the power to make a healthy person sick also has the power to make a sick person healthy." This refers to the "provings" of the remedy, which include all the symptoms a remedy can induce in a healthy person.

Homeopathic remedies are made using a carefully controlled serial dilution and succession of the medicinal substance. The result is a remedy that contains only energy.

Homeopaths use the smallest possible amount of a remedy, just enough to stimulate the patient's healing response.

Only one remedy and one potency are given at a time, because the provings of the original homeopathic method were done in this way.

The complete picture of a person's case includes a person's symptoms and traits on every level, including physical, emotional, and mental.


"The Royal Family has supported homeopathy for generations and there is still a court homeopath."
