A therapeutic modality that is based on the “Law of Similars” which it defined as “like cures like.” This means that a substance can be used to cure a sick person if it can produce the same symptoms in a healthy person.
Homeopathic remedies are derived from substances found in nature like plants, minerals, or animal. It also follows the “Law of Minimun dose” which means that lower the dosage of medicine, the greater the effect.

An example of “like cures like” would be a person with a cold or allergies and presents with symptoms of watery eyes and runny nose. These symptoms are similar to when you cut up an onion. Therefore, for this individual “allium cepa”(the botanical name of red onion) would be the prescribed homeopathic remedy.
