Homeopathy
Homeopathy (from the Greek hómoios means ("like-") + páthos means ("suffering")), is a form of alternative medicine first expounded by Samuel Hahnemann in 1796, that treats a disease with heavily diluted preparations created from substances that would ordinarily cause effects similar to the disease's symptoms. These substances are serially diluted, with shaking ("succussing") between each step, under the belief that this increases the effect of the treatment. This dilution is usually quite extensive, and often continues until no molecules of the original substance are likely to remain. Homeopathy uses many animal, plant, mineral, and synthetic substances in its remedies.
