Homeopathy is a system of alternative medicine which involves treating the individual with diluted substances, given in tablet or liquid form, with the aim of triggering the body's natural system of healing, which Homeopaths call the "Vital Force".
Homeopathy is based on the principle that you can treat "likes with likes", that is, a substance which causes symptoms when taken in large doses, can be used in small amounts to treat those same symptoms. For example, drinking too much coffee can cause sleeplessness and agitation, so according to this principle, when made into a homeopathic medicine, it could be used to treat people with these symptoms. The concept is sometimes used in conventional medicine, for example, stimulants are used to treat patients with ADHD, or small doses of allergens such as pollen are sometimes used to de-sensitise allergic patients. However, one major difference with homeopathic medicines is that substances are used in high dilutions, which make them non-toxic. Homeopaths refer to these medicines as Remedies.
