Homeopathy is a healing system common in many European countries and based on the principle of “like heals like.” If something ills you, in smaller doses it can help heal you by triggering the body’s natural defenses. Doctors of homeopathy take a strong treatment and weaken it down with alcohol or water, a process called potentization to lowered active doses. For example, onions are used in homeopathic remedies that help allergies as they mimic making the eye tear. Some treatments are made from crushed bees, white arsenic and even poison ivy. Homeopaths believe that this lowered dose keeps the healing essence without the dangers and makes a powerful medicine; even though the formulas no longer contain molecules of the original material. Homeopathic remedies come in various forms including sugar pellets, creams and gels.
