Homeopathy

The word Homeopathy originates from the Greek words homois and patheia, which means “like disease”. Homeopathy’s guiding principle is stated as “let likes cure likes”, similia similibus curentur. For example, if a substance causes a symptom in a healthy person, giving the person a very small amount of the same substance is thought to help cure or lessen the illness.Many homeopaths believe that Hippocrates originated homeopathy around 400 BC, when he prescribed a small dose of mandrake root to treat mania, knowing it produces mania in much larger doses.

Many homeopaths believe that Hippocrates originated homeopathy around 400 BC, when he prescribed a small dose of mandrake root to treat mania, knowing it produces mania in much larger doses. In the late 18th century, Samuel Hahnemann, considered the true founder of Homeopathy, gave Homeopathy its name and expanded its principles.

In the United States, Homeopathic remedies have been regulated since 1938 and are considered to be safe. While many studies have shown Homeopathy to be effective, the debate still continues. Dr. LaCava, a graduate of Jefferson University’s Center for Educational Diplomacy in Homeopathy and licensed Homeopath since 2012, believes in its ideology and effectiveness, and often incorporates it into his treatment modality.
