Homeopathy is a serious discipline that has been practiced for more than a century by people who are seeking a natural approach to health and wellness. While many who have sought its benefits have found it to be an effective option that has significantly improved the quality of their lives, it is important to understand that no medical profession can rightfully guarantee a cure to any illness, and homeopathy is no exception. Homeopathic medicine does not fit within the guidelines of today's 'approved' medical practices in most of the USA. It is your right to pursue other therapies if you wish. Homeopathic medicine is not meant to take the place of your medical practitioner, but as a compliment to his/her treatment. HIO Homeopathy makes no medical claims for this alternative/complimentary therapy and can promise no results.
Wellness from Inside Out
We can attempt an explanation of homeopathy by beginning to say that disease is not a material thing. Disease has a life force and symptoms are the material manifestations of that disease in the body.
As Dr. Hahnemann wrote of one colleague, "He has not yet been able to think of disease as a state of being in which the organism [body] is dynamically altered by a morbidly mistuned life force ~ as a modified condition. Rather, he views disease as a material thing..." (Organon p65 fn8)
Hahnemann had discovered how to potentise material medicine into dynamic medicine capable of healing a person at an entirely different level.
One of those medical doctors was Dr. Constantine Hering, who had discovered what is widely recognized as the second Law of Cure: Hering's Law of Direction of Cure - The cure must proceed from center to circumference, from above downward, from within outwards, from more important to less important organs, from the head to the hands and feet.

Born in Germany in the mid 1700's, Samuel Hahnemann founded the homeopathic philosophy after having been educated as a medical doctor. He had become deeply discouraged with the brutal and invasive practices of the medical profession of his time. He was convinced beyond doubt that the abuse of bloodletting, purging, blistering, clysters, etc., weakened the human body and made healing less likely. He witnessed that people died more often from the treatment than from the disease.
Early in his career, while translating medical books, Hahnemann noticed that the symptoms documented for Cinchona (Quinine) were the same symptoms of Malaria. Thus became the first spark of awareness of that era of the first Law of Cure: 'Likes Cures Likes' - that which a substance is capable of causing, is also capable of curing.
Over his entire career of nearly 50 years, Samuel Hahnemann 'proved' (tested) substances on himself and other healthy individuals who faithfully and thoroughly documented the symptoms and spent a lifetime healing people of their illnesses. He gained a following of many medical doctors who have kept the purity of the science in tact and have, in fact, increased the value with documented clinical records of patients.
