Homeopathy is a sophisticated medical science that originated in the 1790’s through the research of a remarkable genius, Dr. Samuel Hahnemann. He was conventionally trained in medicine, but was acutely aware of the limitations and dangers of this approach and gave up his traditional practice. Through meticulous research and study over the course of several years, he discerned  “the Principle of Similars”, and became the first physician to create an entire system of medicine based on this principle.

Homeopathy is widely practiced throughout the world.  In several countries there are homeopathic medical colleges and hospitals.  It was commonplace in the USA from the mid 1800’s until the 1930’s when advances in conventional medicine and the financial clout of the pharmaceutical industry relegated homeopathy to near obscurity.  Within the last 25 years there has been a considerable comeback.  Homeopathic practitioners are now available throughout the US and Canada and over 1 billion dollars is spent annually on homeopathic remedies.
