Homeopathy is a practice that has been around for hundreds of years. While many people have some hard opinions on the efficacy of homeopathic remedies, there are quite a few principles they use that are used in conventional medical practices as well.
Homeopathic remedies are used to help stimulate the immune system to create antibodies for similar illnesses. This process in a way is similar to how allergists will use allergens as a way to build up someone’s defense against those allergens.
What many people expect from a remedy is something to have chemical components that can fight off an illness, similar to medication. However, medication is designed to counter an illness, whereas homeopathic remedies are designed to strengthen the internal defenses of the body.
