What is the origin of homoeopathy?
Homoeopathy was discovered in Germany by a physician named Dr. Samuel Hahnemann in 1790. Hahnemann believed that the underlying causes of disease were phenomena that he termed miasm, and that homoeopathic remedies addressed these. The remedies are prepared by repeatedly diluting a chosen substance in alcohol or distilled water, followed by forceful striking on an elastic body that is dynamisation. Dilution usually continues well past the point where no molecules of the original substance remain but something beyond it present there. Homoeopaths select remedies by considering the totality of the patient's symptoms, personal traits, physical and psychological state, and life history.
