Homeopathy is a safe, gentle, and natural system of healing that works on a subtle, energetic level to activate the body’s innate healing capacity. It is based upon the law of similars, “like cures like.”  If a substance, given in a large dose, can cause particular symptoms in a healthy person, it will cure those same symptoms in people who are ill when given in a low dose. For example, the homeopathic remedy Allium Cepa (Red Onion) is used to treat hay fever like symptoms, like a runny nose and watery, burning, itchy eyes that occur with the common cold or allergies, the very same symptoms it would cause if one were cutting a red onion. Homeopathic remedies are potentized dilutions of a variety of natural substances.
