Homeopathy (pronounced home-ee-ah-pathy) uses very small doses of substances (i.e., plants, flowers, and minerals) to help support healing responses in the body. Homeopathy is based on the "Law of Similars," the principle that you can treat "like with like." For example, a natural allergy relief remedy uses a tiny amount of the allergen (e.g., pollen) to help the body naturally counteract symptoms on its own — instead of masking the symptoms.
Homeopathy is an acceptable complementary treatment for managing symptoms. In fact, homeopathic medicines are used by approximately 200 million adults and children worldwide.1
