The word homeopathy is derived from the Greek homoios meaning "like" and pathos meaning "suffering".

The therapy is based on the principle "let like be treated by like", an old medical tenet found as far back as the works of the Greek physician Hippocrates.

"The results are brought about by administering a substance which is capable of producing symptoms similar to those which the patient is experiencing. A remedy becomes homeopathic only when it matches the symptoms of the patient and creates a reaction.Once the reaction has begun it continues to stimulate the body's own self-healing mechanism.The careful selection of the remedy and potency are important aspects of a homeopathic prescription.

Homeopathy can be used alongside conventional medicine in a diverse number of conditions, both medical and surgical."

Remedies can also be used to diminish the effect of medical or surgical treatment, reduce anxiety and improve well-being. The careful selection of the remedy and potency are important aspects of homeopathic prescribing
