Homeopathy

Posted on December 5th, 2001 by

A system of medicine based on the concept of "like cures like." Symptoms are treated with minute amounts of drugs that would normally produce the same symptoms as the illness being treated. Homeopathy was developed by a German physician and chemist as an alternative to the more sever practices of bloodletting, vomiting, and other excesses of orthodox medicine practiced in the early 1800s.
