Homeopathy

Homeopathy ~ Homeopathy is based on a system of "like cures". Basically it means that a poison [which] causes illness in a healthy person can treat the same in someone who is ill. A substance is greatly reduced to make a remedy safe to use to stimulate the body's self healing properties. Treatment works according to three basic laws of cure. (A) That symptoms move down from the top of the body, (B) Move outwards from the inside of the body, (C) Move from, the most important organs to the least important. The more a remedy was diluted the more specific the effect seemed to be. The symptoms of illness are seen by the Homeopath as a sign that the body is using its own natural self healing abilities to fight back. Homeopathic treatment seeks to stimulate this self healing process. Practitioners may be classical or complex homeopaths. The practitioner will ask about medical history, lifestyle, diet, moods, likes and dislikes. The practitioner draws up a symptom picture to pinpoint strengths and weaknesses. Your symptom picture is matched with those in the homeopathic repertories which includes over 2,000 remedies. The real skill lies in prescribing your remedy.

Biblically, this is putting the practice of something else over God's divine healing and most of the time homeopathy can cause more problems then good.
