Homeopathy is a system of medicine which involves treating the individual with highly diluted substances, given mainly in table form, with the aim of triggering the body's natural system of healing.  Based on their specific symptoms, a homeopath will match the most appropriate medicine to each patient.
Homeopathy is based on the principle of "like treat like".  This means that small doses of a substance that causes illness in large doses, can cure the ailment by triggering the body's natural healing response.  Homeopathic medicines (or remedies), are prapared by dilution and succussion (a specific form of vigorous shaking).  This liquid is then diluted to such a level that it isn't toxic, and this liquid is then poured over lactose based pillules for ingestion.

Science has not been able to explain the mechanism of action of these ultra high dilutions in the body, but laboratory experiments have repeatedly demonstrated that homeopathically prepared substances cause biological effects.

Homeopathy was discovered by a German doctor, Samuel Hahnemann, who, shocked with the harsh medical practices of the day which included blood-letting, purging and the use of poisons such as arsenic, looked for a way to reduce the damaging side-effects associated with medical treatment.

Dr. L. Emdin is registered with the AHPCSA as homeopaths.
