Homeopathic Medicine - Frequently Asked Questions
Classical homeopathy is the type of homeopathy taught by its founder Dr. Hahnemann who claimed that at any given time only one remedy should be given to the patient, the one that has the greatest similarity to his disease. This process of finding the correct remedy is very tedious and requires a lot of search on the part of the physician. But if it is found the therapeutic results are impressive and satisfying. If this unique remedy cannot be found for this patient the results are from zero to a small amelioration of the condition.
