Homeopathy (also spelled Homoeopathy or Homœopathy) is a form of energy medicine, first proposed by German physician Samuel
Hahnemann in 1796, that treats patients with heavily diluted preparations which are thought to cause effects similar to the symptoms presented.
Homeopathic remedies are prepared by serial dilution with shaking by forceful striking, which homeopaths term "succussion," after each dilution
under the assumption that this increases the effect of the treatment. Homeopaths call this process "potentization". Dilution often continues until
none of the original substance remains.
Apart from the symptoms of the disease, homeopaths use aspects of the patient's physical and psychological state in recommending remedies.
Homeopathic reference books known as repertories are then consulted, and a remedy is selected based on the totality of symptoms.
Homeopathic remedies are considered safe, with rare exceptions. However, some homeopaths have been criticized for putting patients at risk
with advice to avoid conventional medicine such as vaccinations, anti-malarial drugs, and antibiotics. In many countries, the laws that govern the
regulation and testing of conventional drugs do not apply to homeopathic remedies.
