is based on the principle that 'like is cured by like'; an illness which produces certain symptoms can be cured by a substance which produces the same symptoms by stimulating the body's own healing mechanism. The approach is to find a remedy which matches the individual's whole symptom picture in detail, but also takes account of general aspects of the person's health, such as the weather and temperature they do best in, their diet and life style, stresses that might contribute to ill health, and family history - to look at inherited tendency to illness. Remedies are derived from plant, animal or mineral sources and are prescribed in tiny concentrated doses as pills or drops. The therapy is suitable for all ages, including babies, and pregnant and breastfeeding women.
