Image HOMEOPATHY
An alternative medicine based on the concept "like cures like." Homeopathy is not any one thing but is actually a mixture of different methods and techniques. To remove or treat harmful toxins within the body, for instance, homeopathy will prepare different degrees of diluted toxins in an effort to obliterate the illness. The practice of homeopathy claims to bring out the symptoms or promote the rapid "life" of the symptoms instead of suppressing them. This is claimed to be a more effective way to remove the illness once and for all although studies show that illnesses have not been cured by the methods of homeopathy and can often be worsened by such techniques.
