Homeopathic practitioners believe that a medicine can cure a patient, is capable of causing a similar disease in a person who is healthy. Most homeopaths give as an example the use of a small dose of red onion, which typically causes a runny nose and itchy eyes to treat a cold, because it carries the same symptoms.
It is very difficult for most people to understand homeopathy, however, the trend towards this type of medicine is growing in the U.S. because some patients are confused with some forms of traditional medicine and are seeking more natural ways to treat their afflictions.
In fact, homeopathy uses natural remedies, specifically, ultra diluted doses of substances such as plants, minerals, and a variety of other substances found in nature. The original substance is diluted in water several times and shaken vigorously after each dilution. As a result, the patient receives only very small quantities, which makes this treatment very safe.
Homeopaths also believe that you should not treat disease, but rather a person who is ill. In other words, the homeopath believes that the substances he or she provides the patient is not going to destroy a cancerous tumor directly, but allow your body to destroy the tumor.
