Homeopathy is considered a soft medicine . Some speak of alternative, alternative, complementary medicine. It was developed by the German physician Dr. Samuel Hahnemann more than two centuries ago. He had discovered that cinchona bark caused the same symptoms as " third fever ".

Homeopathy is therefore based on the principle of similarity: That is to say that are found in the famous small granules substances that can produce in a sensitive person in good health, symptoms similar to those of the disease to be treated. But all this in infinitesimal doses.

Homeopathy heals the ground

Homeopathy is supposed to treat the ground, the body as a whole and not a disease. This explains why a homeopathic doctor during a consultation raises an infinity of questions that do not always relate to why the patient came to see him.

The homeopathic doctor

Only doctors have the right to practice homeopathy. Most homeopaths have specialized in attending seminars or series of courses after graduation. For the College of Physicians, homeopathy is a skill and not a specialty.

Homeopathy is not herbal

Do not confuse homeopathy with herbal medicine which is by definition only herbal medicine, herbal remedies can prescribe homeopathic products especially herbal

Granules or globules

Prescribed products are homeopathic medicines presented mostly in the form of granules or globules. The active ingredients contained in the therapeutic products prescribed are in infinitesimal quantity.

Special designation of homeopathic medicines

Homeopathic medicines can be based on plant products, animal products or minerals. They are named with the Latin name of the organism or mineral from which the active ingredient is extracted then a number followed by the letters CH (number of dilutions in the 100th Hahnemannian) or K (number of dilutions Korsakhovienne) according to the method used to make dilutions.

Two main principles, in the preparation of a homeopathic medicine: dilution and succussion (shaking).
Dilution: The solvent is most often a water / alcohol mixture used for dilutions to the tenth (DH) or, most often, one hundredth (CH) of the stock solution. The most common dilutions are up to 30 CH, ie a dilution rate of 10 power - 60. To be clearer, a dilution at 10 CH is a drop of water in Lake Geneva. dilution at 23 CH is a molecule of water in the water of all oceans, a dilution at 40 CH is a molecule of a parent substance in the total mass of the universe ...

Succession or dynamisation: The dilution is shaken, shocked to be dynamized. It is these repeated "shocks" that would allow the product to maintain its therapeutic virtues. Thus, a 5 CH (centesimal Hahnemannian) is a substance that has undergone 5 times the dilution to the hundredth alternating with 5 phases of dynamization.
