The use of homeopathic remedies is based on the discovery that natural substances are capable of curing the same symptoms that they can cause. By studying the symptoms that develop when a healthy person gets or “proves” a remedy, homeopaths can determine which symptoms the remedy is capable of curing. This is called the Law of Similars, or “like cures like”.
Formulated by Dr. Samuel Hahnemann (1755-1843), it’s practice has enjoyed wide popularity around the world among millions of individuals looking for safe and effective ways to treat illness and improve health.
A simple example of this principle can be seen with the common onion. Slicing an onion can cause symptoms of burning and watery eyes, as well as sneezing and a runny nose. Many hayfever sufferers with symptoms of burning, watery eyes, sneezing and runny nose have found dramatic relief after taking the homeopathic remedy Allium Cepa (the remedy made from red onion). Thus, the substance that can cause symptoms can, as a remedy, also cure them.

What is the difference between a Naturopath and a Homeopath?
Homeopathic remedies are prepared from natural substances such as plants, minerals or animal products which are repeatedly diluted and succussed (vigorously shaken). As this standardized method of dilution and succession continues, the remedy becomes more powerful. Known as potentization, this process is the hallmark of all homeopathic remedies.
The extreme dilution used in the process of preparing homeopathic remedies renders them non-toxic and safe for everyone of all ages ~ even doing pregnancy and while breast feeding
The homeopath regards ill symptoms as evidence of the body’s attempt to restore balance; that is why a homeopath will choose a remedy that supports the body’s innate efforts. With the correct homeopathic remedy there are no side effects, and a person is restored to health naturally with a greater sense of well-being.
Naturopathy uses a range of natural healing options, with homeopathy being one of the options. A good comparison would be to consider your family doctor who is diverse in their approach and treatment vs. a specialist who is focused.
