The Science Behind Homeopathy

Law of Similars

The Law of Similars says that disease can be healed by giving a substance that causes similar symptoms of that disease. A patient's symptoms provide direct clues to what his/her body needs to get cured of their illness. For example, when one cuts up an onion, it may cause red, burning and watering eyes. These symptoms that cutting an onion may cause, is also how someone suffering from allergies may describe their allergy symptoms. In homeopathic medicine, the onion prepared homeopathically may cure these very allergy type symptoms of burning, red and watering eyes.

Principle of Individualization

The development of the electron microscope led to the Genome Theory which categorically proves that every individual has a unique genetic map making him/her different from others. No two persons are alike. Similarly no two persons react alike in sickness. Though multiple people may have the same disease label, the symptoms of one patient differ from the symptoms of all others. A homeopath collects detailed information about each individual's symptoms including mental, emotional and physical. This information is used to find a homeopathic medicine that matches the person's unique "fingerprint".

Theory of Potentization

In an effort to prevent side effects, Dr. Hahnemann began successive dilution with agitation of his medicines, to find the point at which they would be therapeutic, but not toxic. This processing technique eliminates the toxic properties of a substance while retaining its deep healing qualities. Jacques Benveniste, was a French scientist, who in 1988 experimented to test the basic principles of homeopathy. He diluted a medicine with water until that substance was out of molecular existence and discovered that this dilution had the same effect on patients as the undiluted medicine. This is because water retains information of the substance and carries it through the cells of the body even after many water dilutions.

Law of Minimum Dose

The homeopath calculates the minimum required dose of a specific medicine that is sufficient to stimulate the process of cure. The Arndt-Schutz Law states that small doses of medicine stimulate; medium doses paralyze, and large doses kill or suppress. Homeopathic medicines are thus given in extremely minute doses. Hormones and other physiologically active substances are present in the body in amounts so small as to have only recently been measurable - concentrations similar to those of low-potency homeopathic medicines.


The Homeopathic Wellness Clinic was established in 2010. We practice classical homeopathy, the way that the founder of homeopathy outlined in his book, 'The Organon'. The practice of homeopathy treats the person suffering with the disease or illness. Like Hippocrates (460-377 BC), said, "It is more important to know what sort of person has a disease than to know what sort of disease a person has". Thus, a homeopathic consultation seeks to observe and gather all the symptoms the individual manifests on a mental, emotional and physical sphere. The person is seen as whole rather than a collection of body parts.  This is how homeopathy can help people improve on all levels, as disease and illness is viewed holistically. Homeopathy views each individual as unique and therefore each individual receives a homeopathic medicine that matches their unique "fingerprint".

Homeopathy is the second most used and fastest growing system of medicine in the world. Homeopathy can help with acutes, such as cold and flu, bloody nose, concussions, and help in healing broken bones. As well, it can help with chronic issues such as migraines, PMS, menopause, autoimmune diseases, eczema, psoriasis and other skin rashes, depression, ADHD, schizophrenia, insomnia, digestive disorders, IBS, infertility, arthritis, warts, asthma, baby colic and much more. As homeopathy treats the person with the disease, it can help anybody that has an illness or disease.
