The starting point

Lots of substances such as plants, minerals (e.g. mercury) or animal products (e.g. bee venom) cause certain disease symptoms in healthy people. If a homeopathic remedy is made from the same substance, that remedy can actually cure the same symptoms in sick people. This is also known as the similarity principle or the ‘Similia’ rule.

The homeopathic medicine

Homeopathic medicines are made from plants, minerals or animal products. Through a process of repeatedly diluting and shaking the starting substance (potentisation), the medicinal effect of the homeopathic medicine is expressed.

Homeopathic medicines do not suppress, do not produce habituation or dependence and have no side effects. They are therefore ideally suited during pregnancy, breastfeeding and for babies and children.
