What is Homoeopathic Medicine?

Have you heard people raving about homoeopathic medicine recently? This antique field is regaining popularity of late. However, few people understand what homoeopathy really is and how it works. In essence, the base theory is treat like with like. By using highly diluted substances, the body's natural healing system is triggered. The substance in question may be the very same that can cause the patient's symptoms when taken in larger doses, however, diluted to an almost non-existent and definitely non-toxic level it is used to treat the same symptoms.
All said, science can still not explain how these highly diluted substances work, but it is widely recognized that water has the power to hold 'memory' or trace elements of the original substance and that is enough for the body to receive the message. With traces back to Hippocrates, homoeopathic medicine has been safely used for the past 200 years.
