Homeopathy Explained

Homeopathy Explained

Homeopathy is a pseudo-science that falls under the broad canopy ofalternative and complimentary medicine. Invented by Samuel Hahnemann in 1796 and developed by him in the following years, homeopathy depends on the ideas of like-for-like, where symptoms can be alleviated by dliuted causes of symptoms.

Homeopathy’s popularity has waxed and waned over the years, with very few homeopaths existing outside Europe in the 1950s, but the practice has gained traction since the 1970s.
