Homeopathy is a holistic treatment system that helps the body heal itself naturally, uses all natural methods, and addresses the patient as a whole. It is essentially an energy therapy. By loading the body with the kind of energy it needs, it increases and expands its healing capacity. Homeopathy is a Greek word; Homeos = similar, Pathos = pain, is formed by the combination of the words suffering. Homeopathy is based on the principle of “like heals like”. The principle that a substance that produces certain findings in a healthy person provides healing in sick people with the same findings is applied. The aim in homeopathy is to activate the body’s own healing mechanisms and thus to bring the body into the healing process.
The definition of disease in homeopathy is the “affecting the whole” of the body, mind and spirit, and the disruption of the balance of the whole organism. For this reason, homeopathy does not give different drugs for the deterioration of different organs, on the contrary, a medicine is used that covers the whole disorder, imbalance and the whole person. The aim of this treatment is to completely and radically cure the disease in a moderate and reliable way without harming the patient. In homeopathic treatment, the name of the disease does not play a role in determining the drug, the main thing is the patient’s findings. Different drugs can be given to patients diagnosed with the same disease, taking into account the details of their complaints and other characteristics. Likewise, the same drug can be given to patients diagnosed with different diseases.
Homeopathy in the World:
When we look at the history, actually BC. We see that Hippocrates, who was accepted as the father of medical science, who lived in the 5th century, also treated a similar one. Beginning with Hippocrates, the approach that was further developed and adopted during the Roman period failed to advance after the collapse of the empire. In the 15th century, the Swiss Paracelcus developed the theory of similarity and brought it back to light. German Doctor Samuel Hahnemann (1975 Meissen, Germany – 1843 Paris, France) adopted this approach, proved it with experiments, put forward a holistic treatment system and developed the treatment materials called remedies today. He named this approach, which he supported with hundreds of experiments, “homeopathy” and placed it in a scientific framework.
According to WHO (World Health Organization) estimates, 500 million people are currently being treated with homeopathy. Currently, homeopathy is the second most preferred treatment system in the world after modern medicine.

Only drugs that have been scientifically tested and proven are used in homeopathy. It is given to the patient by mixing with water or directly orally.
